  • Out of Town Posted on October 29, 2012

    Hey Guys!  I’m out-of-town for the next few days this week. As you’re reading this I’m on a plane heading from San Francisco to New Orleans.  Crazy, right?!  I had to go to San Francisco for a family wedding and from there I’m flying to New Orleans for a work-related conference.  I’m hoping I’ll be… Read More »

  • My Running Turban Posted on October 25, 2012

    I feel like it’s been ages since I’ve posted up any kind of finished project on the blog.  After finishing this little headband turban about 2 weeks ago, I wanted to make a point of taking some pre-run pictures to share with you all. I don’t think you guys have seen me (ever!) without my… Read More »

  • Pocket Detail on B5824 Coat Posted on October 22, 2012

    I spent my Friday night and the vast majority of Saturday working on my coat.  I feel as if I really didn’t get that much done since I was primarily working on correcting some seams in my bodice (more on that later).  But I did get my fun, little pocket detail done after lots of… Read More »

  • Starring Stripes Jumper Pattern Posted on October 19, 2012

    I’m so excited to start sharing my recent finds (aka wins from ebay) with you all.  The first pattern is from the November 1936 edition of Stitchcraft magazine.  These earlier Stitchcrafts were more like magazines and not just filled with patterns.  They have style advice from their correspondent in Paris, an article or two, and… Read More »

  • What’s on my Needles Posted on October 18, 2012

    My blog has been pretty Coat & Tailoring heavy the past few weeks, I decided that I was going to change it up and talk about my current knitting projects instead. Last weekend I commenced picking up stitches and doing the short row shaping for the second sleeve cap on my Accessory to your Spring Suit Jumper.  This means… Read More »

  • Steaming The Roll Line: Before and After Posted on October 17, 2012

    I got a great comment yesterday from both Charity Shop Chic & Chris and asking why my collar looks so flat instead of all rolled and shapely due to all of my pad stitching.  My response became so long I felt like it deserved a post on its own. My collar looks quite flat since I… Read More »

  • Final Tailoring of my Gertie Coat Posted on October 16, 2012

    After nearly sewing all day on Saturday and in bits and pieces on Sunday, I (surprisingly) finished all of my hand sewing/tailoring on my Gertie Coat (aka B5824).  What’s even better is that I’m nearly caught up to where Gertie is in her sew-along even though I added all of this additional tailoring work!  :) This was a… Read More »

    Thank you guys so much for entering my October giveaway and for leaving me such great comments to read though.  Plus I wouldn’t be even having a giveaway in the first place if you guys weren’t following me (whether it be 200 or 400?!  Which is just pure craziness!!!) Seriously can we talk about that… Read More »

  • First Steps of Tailoring Posted on October 11, 2012

    Hey peeps!  Sorry I’ve been a bit MIA, I’ve been sick the past few days.  Seems the fall sickness is hitting everyone and it’s finally made its way to me. I finally had some energy last night and started working on my coat once again.  I’ve slowly been coming to the conclusion that Gertie’s sew-along… Read More »
