DKNY Dress in Leopard Tencel Twill

I have had Vogue 1287 by DKNY in my stash for a long time but was always hesitant to make it because it seemed like it would be complicated to grade out at the hips and I was afraid I wouldn’t fit a straight size in this pattern. As per usual, I am frustrated by […]

A Golden Dress for Your Grandma

We are way overdue for a #grandmachic make! This gorgeous dress was finished months ago and was purely inspired by the pattern image on the envelope.

Plaid Shirtdress

  I’m sure many of you are familiar with the #sewfrosting hashtag that recently started trending on sewcial media. The #sewfrosting challenge is the brainchild of the creators behind True Bias and Closet Case Patterns. It is a call to arms for sewists across the globe to take a little break from sewing cake- cake being […]
