Sequin Grainline Lark Tee

In case you haven’t noticed, I haven’t been sewing much lately. I’ve had a few sewing setbacks with a couple patterns I’ve tried and I just haven’t been feeling that inspired. But I have made a few things, like this sparkly Lark Tee I sewed as a sample for a class I taught at the Cloth Pocket. I got the fabric from a swap. It’s a burnout jersey of mysterious fiber content with tiny sequins…

Sewaholic Pacific Leggings, McCall’s 7446 Leggings, Simplicity 1463 Top

Another day, another activewear sewing project. What can I say? I’m obsessed. This time it’s a triple threat! First up: the Sewaholic Pacific Leggings. I made view C, the cropped leggings, with one big alteration: I slashed the back legs and added mesh panels behind the knees which echo the style lines in view B. One small alteration: I nixed the crotch gusset (the feature that made me excited to try this pattern) because, well,…

Hudson Pants and Two Pneuma Sports Bras

Activewear sewing continues! These are my third True Bias Hudson Pants and my first capri version. They’re made from a super soft and lightweight “denim” French terry from LA Finch Fabrics that I also used for this Plantain shirt. I cut a size 4 so they’re pretty slim fitting and I also adjusted the front crotch curve to get rid of some excess fabric in the center. Other than that, the only change I made was…

Two Plantain Shirts (plus bonus adorable cat)

This post has an extra special appearance from Betsy – my relative’s adorable fluffy Persian kitty. I can’t tell if she’s annoyed with me holding her because her face always looks like that. Either way, she’s super nice. My cat, Peanut, would never let me hold her like this. Both of the knits for these two shirts are from I bought them for other projects which have been cut out but not yet sewn….

Patterns for Pirates – Peg Leg Leggings

EVEN. MORE. ACTIVEWEAR. SEWING. Yep, I’m on a roll and perhaps even a little obsessed. Most of my sewing the past couple months has been geared toward some type of sports, exercise or outdoorsy-ness. Sorry, not sorry. This is my first Patterns for Pirates make and it’s pretty successful. These are the Peg Legs – a simple leggings pattern with no side seams (yay!) and no waistband elastic (double yay!). The fabric is again from…

Sewing Indie Month with True Bias: Summer Concert Tank

I have followed and loved Dixie for years now so I was super excited to be paired up with her to create a tutorial for her blog as part of Sewing Indie Month. I already loved the Summer Concert Tee by Dixie. I made it up a couple of years ago in some hand dyed shibori fabric and that top is still in regular rotation in my wardrobe. I’ve always wanted to make a tank…
