    It’s no secret that Meg, Michelle, and I are friends and we meet up for knit nights at a local cafe.  So of course we’re always pondering and dreaming about fabric, patterns and the like.  It was very natural of us to say “Wouldn’t it be amazing to go fabric shopping in Pairs?!” as we… Read More »

    I’m back once again, this time with my first iteration of the McCalls 6713 dress.  Like I said in my earlier post, I’m all about the blues this summer. I kinda posted out of order on this dress as this is the first make of M6713, and is a bit more true to the pattern. As… Read More »

  • Silk Charmeuse Pajama

    This past fall & winter, I’ve been a sewing renegade; I’ve been sewing without a plan.  I generally like to make lists and sew what I feel I need in my wardrobe – there’s nothing better than checking off items in a list, ya know?!  But I did quite the opposite in this past winter… Read More »
