    Languid Leopard Lounging

    Cari Homemaker is back. The leopard print never left.

  • Jungle January Jenna

    Jungle January Jenna

    Clear back in July, quite a few months ago, though not that many postings ago, I mentioned the effect that my work situation was having on my wardrobe thoughts. At that time, the thought was that I’d be going into the office for an indeterminate length of time, but that there would be an end-date. I…

  • Outfit Along 2016

    Outfit Along 2016

    I’m barely squeaking in this project before the outfit along deadline. The official outfit along pattern for this year was the Sewaholic Hollyburn skirt, but I wanted to make the cropped version of the sweater, so I decided a dress would be the way to go. I settled on making up the Cashmerette Upton dress.…

  • Blue Seersucker Doris Dress

    Blue Seersucker Doris Dress

    I happened to look at my recent postings, only to realize that I have nothing recent. The best way to fix that, as far as I know, is to write a new post. This dress was already blogged on The Monthly Stitch, but Guinevere took some really cute pictures, so I think I should put…

  • Kim Dress: The Siren Call of a Pretty Print

    Kim Dress: The Siren Call of a Pretty Print

    I was trying to sew tonight, but just couldn’t really get into it. As you may have seen if you follow me on Instagram, I’m working on a peacoat for my husband. I’m so not in the mood to be sewing wintry items, but if I put it off until fall, I’ll need to be…

  • Jungle Jacaranda

    Jungle Jacaranda

    I didn’t purposely put off blogging this dress I finished months ago until now when it’s Jungle January, but since I did end up not liking the first pictures I took (too much splotchy shade and an impatient photographer) and it took me forever to get pictures retaken, it seemed only right to hold off…

  • By Hand London Flora Dress: In Late Summer Plaid

    By Hand London Flora Dress: In Late Summer Plaid

    This is one of those dresses that was both deceptively simple and at the same time quite complicated. The pattern is By Hand London’s Flora dress with a lengthened hemline. The crinoline just barely peeks out, providing a bit of a lacy touch; though, the real reason for the crinoline is that the fabric wants…

  • Sewing Dare Accepted/Sewing Dare Completed

    Sewing Dare Accepted/Sewing Dare Completed

    Remember Sewing Dares? There’s another round going on now, and this time I threw myself in for one. I asked specifically for a dare related to shorts so Gillian dared me to make either Kwik Sew 3854 or BHL Holly shorts. I did not think this through well, since completing the dare means posting pics of…

  • By Hand London Sophia Dress: Blue Stripes and Red Clover

    By Hand London Sophia Dress: Blue Stripes and Red Clover

    I’m ecstatic to show off this project. I’m too excited to think of anything to say about it. Maybe if I start with a picture some words will follow. This post is a bit picture-heavy; I’ll explain why at the end. This is the By Hand London Sophia Dress. I loved this pattern even when all they had…
