After almost a year of sewing mostly basics, I’ve been feeling the urge to bust up outta my sewing shell and add a few fun pieces to my wardrobe. To date, I’ve made about 5 pairs of jeans and 3 or 4 pairs of leggings. so I think I got my basics covered in the pants category. It was high time I sewed up these Closetcase Patterns Sasha Trousers!
Animal print is SO in right now. Wait, was it ever really out? I have to be honest, I used to shy away from animal print. But these days, I’ve been embracing it in small-yet-gradually-increasing doses.
Hello friends! I’m back with another tutorial for you. This time I’m showing you how to make a facing for the tie waist version of the Hana Tank pattern (Version C).
The Hana Tank + Dress Pattern features the bias binding method of finishing the neckline and armholes. While this method is a great scrap buster, the first few times you try it might be frustrating. It takes practice and a little patience to make sure all those seams lay flat with no puckering.
Cass, one of the Hana testers and the sewist behind @craftyprofessor on Instagram, has created a tutorial for drafting and sewing an all-in-one facing for Hana.

I found a couple of "magic skirts" at my local thrift store and refashioned them into two Anthropologie-inspired tops.
One way that I like to add a little extra personality to my OOTD is by adding a punch of color in my accessories, and these earrings are the perfect way to do just that!
I love making jeans. They’re surprisingly easier to make than they seem, and having a custom fit pair of pants that I can wear nearly every day is the ultimate sewing win, if you ask me. But I am very particular about my pants...
At the end of last year, I was a new convert to the wardrobe sewing craze and looking for new projects to sew like A MAD WOMAN. I knew that I needed to get more focused and pick items that were not only fun to sew, but also beautiful staple wardrobe pieces. Enter: The Cambria Duster by Friday Pattern Company.
Well, well, well, here she is! The Jasika Blazer was quite a big project, but so worth the effort.
This post may get a little long, but hang with me! I’ll try to stay organized…
