Making the Summer Caye Pants by Love Notions

Making the Summer Caye Pants by Love Notions

And just like that, the weather’s warm. I’m not really a shorts person. I will wear them but I prefer a pair of flowy, wide-leg linen pants when it’s not yet stinking hot outside. When I saw the Summer Caye pants pattern a short while ago, I thought “I need these.” Rather than buying more pants from Old Navy, why not blow through my (growing extensive) fabric stash instead? Best laid plans… Oh by the way, this post contains affiliate…

Sewing the Greenstyle Elevate Crop & Overlay

Oh hi there! How’s it going? I hope you are well. I was stuck at an oil change and recall repair for the car for a few hours the other day, so I thought I’d take this opportunity to write up a little post. It’s about a fun sew from a few months ago that I posted about on my Instagram and keep meaning to tell you about in detail: The Elevate Crop Top from Greenstyle Creations! Remember the Greenstyle…

Sewing the Tori Cinched Crop from Petite Stitchery

Sewing the Tori Cinched Crop from Petite Stitchery

It’s spring, but it’s still kind of winter here in Southern Ontario. No matter the weather though, you’ll find me making tanks year-round. It’s not that I hate sleeves. I actually love how easy it is to sew on a sleeve compared to making sure arm bands or binding are even and just the right length and stretch… I just don’t get a lot of wear out of my sleeved items aside from hoodies (which I am only recently embracing…

Hello, fellow sewist! Let me run you through a scenario.

So — of course — I’m making more sleeveless tops. This is my life. I’m warm all year round (except for my fingers and toes) and I am an avid layerer. Tank + sweater/cardigan = me in the winter. Just tank = me in the summer. The other seasons…

My Favourite Sews of the Year: Extra Comfy Edition

My Favourite Sews of the Year: Extra Comfy Edition

Hey there! Well, it’s the end of another year. The holidays are in full swing and I’m not in the mood to prepare for them, so I figured, what’s the end of the year — and the start of a brand new blog — without a good, quick round-up post? It was a year to be as comfortable as humanly possible. I didn’t get to sew as often as I would like this year. When I was up to it,…
