Joggers for Her – Simplicity 8268

The upside of a unisex pattern is the twofer deal: one for him and one for me. The major upside of fitting into the same size as your husband is using his muslin as your finished piece. For the non-sewist, a muslin is a “practice” piece made to ensure fit. …

Joggers for Him – Simplicity 8268

When I made my #2018makenine plans, I had two pairs of pants on the list because I really want to learn how to make them. The easiest way to start: by making stretchy unisex sweat pants (or joggers, if you’re fancy). I figured conquering an “easy” pair of pants would …

Jan17 Fabric Haul

I realized as I was writing my fur cape post, that my visits to the downtown Los Angeles Fashion District are becoming more regular. Shocking, I know. It’s usually a full afternoon of my mom and I traipsing around Maple St, oohing and aahing over the array of beautiful fabrics. …

Game of Thrones-Inspired Fur Cape – New Look 6475

The path to having a fur cape started back in October when I became a tad bit obsessed with a faux rabbit fur I happened upon at a distant Joann’s. It was on sale, and oh-so-soft! But I simply couldn’t justify the purchase without a concrete plan for it. What …

I Got a New Toy!

I treated myself recently after winning my fantasy football league. Free money is fun money. The Brother 1034D is apparently the go-to starter serger (or overlocker, if you’re from one of the fancy countries with a cool accent), but I also found that the upgraded Brother 1034DX is available, too. However it’s …

Happy New Year! I always love the beginning of the year. It feels like the ultimate reset. Everyone is starting something new. Whatever that thing is for each of us individually, we’re all in it together. *Housekeeping: some links on this page are affiliate links, meaning that I get a …

I’m not ready to get out of bed and face the new year yet, so let’s look back on the last month of the year instead! I completed 6 projects in December, 5 of which were clothing, 4 of which were successful! And for the first time, I think I …

Signature Color of the Month Series – #sigcotm

After the success of #OWOP17, I became intrigued by the concept of restrictions as a way to force creativity. Sounds backwards, right? But sometimes the more freedom I have on a project, the more I suffer from analysis paralysis. I’ve found that if I give myself boundaries in terms of …

2018 #MenswearMakeNine Plans

Allow me to introduce you to El Husbando. Having a husband is nice. Having one that willing wears everything his wife makes for him is even better. He’s such a willing guinea pig! When I found out about Allie’s #menswearmakenine pledge, I asked him what he wanted. He’s a software …
