This week, we’re looking back. Consider this a more in-depth look at my Me Made May realizations this year, with a look at what I’ve made that’s still in regular rotation, along with the things that didn’t quite make the cut.
This week, I’m showing off yet another pair of Ginger Jeans - with a twist! I’ve hacked the pattern into a pair of overalls, and I’m pretty pleased with the outcome!
In which our sewing blogger makes a pair of purpose-built leggings for stand-up paddleboard adventures, and then goes SUPing!
In which our sewist tackles waterproofing, complains a lot about plastic, makes the Closet Case Patterns Kelly Anorak, and takes a weekend trip to Queenstown. Also, a rainbow.
Baby clothes! All the baby clothes! In an attempt to do a bit of scrapbusting, I've made some onesies, bloomers, and a reversible bucket hat for the baby that our neighbours are expecting, and the resulting ~cuteness factor~ was, well... unexpected.
In which our sewist travels back in time (and over an ocean!) to make (and photograph!) a coat.
Six pairs of jeans! Today we're investigating the number of jeans that the average American woman owns, in comparison to to the number of Ginger Jeans I've made. It's also a great time for a quick roundup of all six :)
In which our blogger makes her fifth pair of Ginger Jeans (second pair of flares!) with 1970's inspired twist, and a great amount of attention paid to grain lines. as you do.
Two parts retro and one part refashion - this week, I've turned a vintage sheet I found at a secondhand market into a cute sundress with a dip-dyed skirt.
In Which our blogger falls into the next age bracket for surveys - and makes a birthday dress.
In which our sewist makes metal-studded motorcycle jeans - and guides you through the process to make your own!
A Successful Me Made May, and the completion of the Capsule Wardrobe! Plus, an investigation of the wardrobe planning tool Style Book, and many, many outfit photos.
In which our Very Excited Blogger reviews a new pattern, and waxes poetic about sleeves. Again.
Harriet! Hi Harriet! Cloth Habit's new pattern, the Harriet Bra, has been taking the sewing world by storm the past few months - my instagram, facebook, and bloglovin' feeds are all full of Harriets in all shapes and sizes. It's wonderful, and it's high time I joined the party! (I actually made the first bra in this post a while ago, but I'm only now getting around to blogging it!)
In which a pattern becomes a staple, even if its waistline does not.
In which our sewist begins the descent down the rabbithole of sleeve perfection.
In which our sewist wages war against sleeves.
If you've been around for a while, you've probably noticed a peculiarity in this space as compared with most sewing blogs: I draft most of what I sew. In fact, I would say I draft all of what I sew, except right at this very moment I'm wearing a fresh-off-the-machine pair of Closet Case Files Ginger Jeans!
