The Women’s Uptown/Downtown Dress by Sew Straight & Gather has sooo many options.  This is the cowl neck, long sleeve dress length.  There are three necklines – high, medium and low, plus the cowl neck.  There {…Continue Reading}

Boyfriend Cardigan

Moving away from the True Bias portion of my Momiform Capsule Wardrobe, today is all about the Boyfriend Cardigan by Love Notions.

Handcrafted 2 Satya 2

Satya Variations in Handcrafted 2 for Quilt Market

My first foray into the world of sewing samples for Quilt Market was with Handcrafted by Alison Glass for Andover Fabrics.  I made one of the first versions of what would eventually become my Verona Dress pattern.  So I was very pleased when I was invited to make something with Handcrafted 2. I took the opportunity {…Continue Reading}

First Day of School 2015

It’s here!  The much-anticipated FIRST DAY OF SCHOOL!  We joined in with pretty much every family everywhere to make our attempt at Pinterest-worthy first day photos.  And the result?  Some close to that bar and others just a little silly: Hadley is always hamming it up, so I just told them to get their sillies {…Continue Reading}
