It’s time for my Top 5 Misses – i.e. the clothes that never get worn! Now, I have to say that only one of these is a real fail… the rest just turned out to be “meh”. I have a LOT of clothes at this point, and if it’s not a favourite, it won’t get worn. … More My Top 5 Misses of 2014
Let the list-making begin! My first Top 5 list for the year is my Top 5 favourite or most-worn makes. There are some TNTs on here, as well as clothes that just make me feel happy every time I wear them. Without further ado, my Top 5 Hits! (In no particular order…) 1. Autumn Comino … More My Top 5 Hits from 2014
Not much to say about this dress… It’s Lady Skater (sort of) and it’s floral (very!) This fabric is one of the floral pontes that I ordered from Fashion Fabrics Club a little while back. I asked you folks if ponte would work for a Lady Skater, and you assured me it would… and of … More Floral Lady Skater!
This post has been a long time coming… who knows why I delayed sewing this dress or writing this post for quite so long, when I am really excited about the result? Back in the summer, my sister Anne requested a dress for her company’s Mad Men-inspired Christmas party this November. We decided to go with … More Anne’s Anna

It’s a bird! It’s a plane! No, it’s a plaid ponte Plantain shift dress! This dress started as an afterwork, TGIF purchase. In other words, I bought myself some happiness for the low price of $11/m! That’s more than I usually pay for fabric (in fact, the contrast fabric was $23/m, so thank goodness I … More Plaid Ponte Shift
(The more I stare at this photo, the stranger the pose seems to me! I blame holding the camera remote…) Two new things in my life: A new top, and a new-to-me car! One fleeting, and one hopefully more long-lasting. I have a car! All to myself! WOOHOO!!!! *Dance party!* I didn’t get my full license until … More Two New Things
The Comino Cap was my favourite pattern of the summer, so it’s no surprise that I’ve made a more autumnal version! I got this lovely viscose jersey at a different branch of my local chain store yesterday. It was on for “Buy 1 for $15, get two free!” so i snapped up 2m each of … More Autumn Comino Cap
It’s a good thing that I sewed for Scraptember in August… because suddenly it’s days away from the end of September and I haven’t posted yet! In the last month I’ve started at a new school, which means setting up a new classroom, meeting new coworkers, breaking in a whole new class to my way … More Scraptember!
Blog stats. So fun and fascinating, so arbitrary and superficial a way to measure ourselves! I can’t be the only one that enjoys looking at my blog stats, either through Google Analytics, WordPress, or even just checking the number of followers on Bloglovin’ or Feedly.
