Maternity Jacket Refashion

For several pregnancies now, I’ve had a terrible secret!  Each of these pregnancies were in the winter, but I didn’t have a maternity jacket.  Well, I had one, but it didn’t fit my tall frame and mostly my long arms.  I decided it was just better to be cold than to fight with sleeves thatContinue reading “Maternity Jacket Refashion”

October 2018 Goals Update #2

It’s time for another check in to see where we are on our 2018 sewing resolutions.  Since there are only 3 months left, we should be getting closer to finishing up.  Should be!   For the women’s make 9 challenge, we’ve now sewn 6 of the garments we had planned.  Here are links to theContinue reading “October 2018 Goals Update #2”

Phoenix Blouse with 3 changes

In my last post I mentioned that one reason I didn’t mind sewing a Phoenix Blouse for Aria was that I was sewing 2 at a time.  And of course the other one was for me!  Ever since I sewed up my wearable muslin Phoenix Blouse, I’ve been wanting more. Having sewed a muslin, IContinue reading “Phoenix Blouse with 3 changes”

Polar Bear Raglan T-shirts

If you guessed that I’m on a stash-busting, raglan t-shirt making, boy sewing streak, you’d be correct! So once again, I pulled out the Oliver+S Field Trip Raglan T-shirt pattern and got to work. Enter two polar bear raglan t-shirts. This time, there was just enough of the Birch Organics, super soft cotton knit fabricContinue reading “Polar Bear Raglan T-shirts”

Lion Hoodie from Narnia

You may have noticed the other day when I posted the French Terry fabric comparison that a certain little boy got left out in the animal hoodie theme.  When I saw Raspberry Creek Fabrics spring release CLUB fabrics, I saw the perfect opportunity to rectify a situation which included a very upset little boy.  EnterContinue reading “Lion Hoodie from Narnia”

Boy Raglans and Boy Antics

I love these two boys and I love sewing for these two boys!  This project was born out of the need to do some scrap busting.  You see, my friend and fellow tall seamstress over at Sew Journers put out a free spreadsheet called Stash Shrinker.  The idea is to choose a multiplier and onlyContinue reading “Boy Raglans and Boy Antics”

Menswear Sewing Plans – 2018

The other day I mentioned I plan to do more sewing for Mr. Skirt Fixation in 2018.  So today is all about my menswear sewing plans for 2018.  I’d like to branch out a little bit from the approximately 12-15 t-shirts I sewed for him in 2017.  With that in mind, and for encouragement fromContinue reading “Menswear Sewing Plans – 2018”
