My 7th pair of Ginger Jeans

Ginger jeans, hands down, are my favourite pattern as I'm sure you can guess from the fact that this is my 7th pair. I've combined the two versions again to make a low waist (Version A) with skinny legs (Version B). I reckon the denim I have has about 10% stretch (its a lovely denim... Continue Reading →


Hudson Pants

I've been eyeing the Hudson Pants pattern from True Bias for a while now. I knew I wanted a pair, but it wasn't imperative. But then I saw this speckled mustard sweatshirt fleece in Raystitch, and I had to have a pair right away. These are now my happy pants. Plus as I sewed five... Continue Reading →

Another Francoise dress

After making my last Francoise dress, I immediately cut out and started another one. I had the perfect fabric in my stash, which I picked up at the Knitting and Stitching show years ago. I had seen the fabric before and talked myself out of buying it, but couldn't stop thinking about it, so was... Continue Reading →

Me-Made-May reflections

Wow where did May go? And how the hell are we in the middle of June? It's pretty clear from MMM that my favourite patterns are the Ginger Jeans and Biscayne Blouse. But how did I do on my pledge to not only wear my me-made, but wear the underappreciated me made items, repair or alter... Continue Reading →

Francoise Dress

I really loved the raglan sleeves and french darts of the Francoise dress, but despite having the pattern and fabric on hand for quite a few months now, the need for a FBA put... Continue Reading →

2nd pair of Sasha trousers

As I mentioned in my previous post on the Sasha trousers, I had a 2nd classic stretch twill from Style Maker Fabrics  in my stash in 'Nautical' blue and was really excited about having a pair in this color.   While I made size 12 last time with quite substantial adjustments, I thought it may be...

Me-Made-May week 2

Week 2 of me-made-made has gone well and I wore a few of under-loved or infrequently worn items, rehomed one Some have been rehomed, I made  small changes to one which will increase how often it gets worn, but for some I just needed a reminder that I liked how I look in them. 8th ...

Me-Made-May week 1

This me-made-may is about more than trying to make sure I wear me-made items every day (I pretty much do that anyway). I want instead to use it to dig out my unworn or underappreciated me-made items. Do I just need a reminder of what is buried in the closet or are there certain things... Continue Reading →
