I had two dresses from my pile of clothes to remake using the fabric that I thought were perfect for this pattern. The … More Sew Liberated Nest Sweatshirt
Rather than talk about why I have been absent from blogging pretty much over the pandemic, I am just going to be sharing a few things I have made lately. I am not sure about making a post on my absence. It would be a long one about all the nuances and sadnesses of being … More Refashioning Projects

I’ve been obsessed with the Huon shirt and dress from Muna and Broad since it came out. I’ve made a couple of versions of the Seamwork Jo shirt and it sort of has similar vibes, but the long sleeves on the Huon are what draw me in. I just love them! I chose to … More Muna and Broad Huon Shirt
The Abbey Convertible Backpack from Love you Sew has been on my to-sew list for a while and it’s also been cut out in my to-sew pile for a while. Ooops.
