Hi! Anyone following me on IG may have noticed that I jumped on the #makenine2019 bandwagon in January!  I thought it would be fun, and provide  focus, to choose 9 main things to sew and really spend time on in 2019.  The first square in my little chart happened to be...

So, much to the surprise of some of my friends, I jumped on the overall bandwagon with this test sew.  I haven't worn overalls since 1994.  But THESE overalls are NOT my old Ikeda's (whose bib I used to turn into a purse in highschool...) - as usual Adrianna of...

Spring is here...oh wait a second, no - no it's actually +25C and apparently it's summer.  I feel like we skipped right over spring.  I ain't complaining though!

When Adrianna emailed the tester group with this gorgeous new pattern, my fat fingers couldn't hit t...

(Note:  this is a long one!  Grab a coffee or a glass of wine and get comfortable!)

It's been a year now that I've been blogging (I use the term loosely - I realize this isn't something I do with any regularity yet), and I've been thinking about writing this pa...

So hey!  It's been awhile since I blogged!  But I'm here now, and I've got a project that has become near and dear to my heart to share with you.  OK that sounds like it's serious, it's not that serious.  It's pants.  But like REAL pants, and I sewed them - I actually...

Hi!  Long time, no chat!  It's been a busy few weeks/months over here and while I haven't taken a break from sewing, I haven't had as much time to blog lately.

Without further excuses, here is my June #sewmystyle project, the Briar Top/Sweater, pattern by Megan Nie...

I finished it!  I finally made time to finish the coat that's been in my head (and on my cutting table) for over 6 months.  Behold, my Lonetree Jacket:

This jacket is exactly what I've been wanting and needing in my wardrobe, and perfectly fits into that 'not too h...

First, the bad news.  I'm sorry #sewmystyle April - I broke up with the pattern that was allotted for this month.  It wasn't you - it was me.  The pattern was the Backless Bridgetown Dress/Tunic, and I knew when I first saw it in the lineup, that it was verrr...

Happy Spring!  Or at least in Victoria - I hear Newfoundland is supposed to get pummelled with snow again this weekend...so, yeah, welcome to Canada. 

I wear jeans all winter, especially when it's a little chilly.  So my leggings don't really come out unt...

A few weeks ago I applied to be a test sewist for Sew Like My Mom's newest pattern, the Apricot Dolman, and I was accepted!  It was my very first time being a tester, and I was super thrilled to be a part of the group. 

The pattern itself is easy to understand, and...
