  • 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 »

    I have a *thing* where if I don’t take pictures for the blog – then I can’t wear my completed garment.  It’s silly, but it’s supposed to be my motivation to take final pictures of my makes.  Sadly, I made this kimono robe at the beginning of the summer and it has yet to be… Read More »
