Yes, this little jacket is just as huggable as it looks! Canvas on the outside and super soft sherpa on the inside makes for the warmest, most cozy jacket ever. I started with some really beautiful cotton canvas by Art Gallery Fabrics from Minerva. It is very supple and easy to work with for projects.Continue reading “Canvas Jacket”
The Amalfi Dress from Hey June Patterns doesn’t seem to get sewn as often as some of the other Hey June Patterns. People think the silhouette isn’t for them, so hopefully after seeing this version of the Amalfi, you’ll give it another look.
David Rain Coat sewed and reviewed by Skirt Fixation. We used 2 different fabrics to make 3 rain jackets and you’ll probably be amazed at one of the “fabrics!”
we were offered some knit fabric from Lillestoff, and we jumped at the opportunity. Euro knits are reputed to be very high quality, ultra soft, and long lasting. So we wanted to know how Euro knit fabric measured up…this is our review.
Oh hi there! It seems like I’m back with another favorite top. This is probably going to shock you (sarcasm) but I used a Hey June pattern and the best fabric I could find! This one came about because I bought myself some really nice fabric as a reward for finishing up a job wellContinue reading “Lane Raglan Sweatshirt with 3 Piece Hood”

To go with her new rayon challis maxi circle skirt, Aria needed a new blouse. Enter the grunge floral Phoenix Blouse. The Phoenix Blouse pattern is a boho style top and a definite favorite, as you might have guessed! (Remember how we designated last summer as the Summer of the Phoenix Blouse?) No regrets andContinue reading “Grunge Floral Phoenix Blouse”
I envisioned this outfit for the first time over 20 years ago! The details escape me now, but somewhere there was a navy pinstripe skirt and I fell in love. However, taking into consideration my 6′ height, the look I wanted was not achievable so the idea of a navy pinstripe skirt was filed awayContinue reading “Mustard Phoenix Blouse and Navy Pinstripe Skirt”
The final garment I sewed for the Project Nature Adventure collection is a Risu Dress using Tide Pools double brushed poly fabric. This fun combination creates a really cute dress. Before I used my good fabric, I had to test this pattern with some scrap fabric. I grabbed some double brushed poly from the stash,Continue reading “2 Risu Dresses”
