Pattern Review: BWOF-03-2007-126 (Spring Sew Geeky)

I hadn’t originally included this dress as part of my spring Sew Geeky plans, but, then again, I hadn’t originally planned on attending a wedding during this time frame either.  This was sort of a last minute look, but I thought I might as well incorporate it into my Spring Sew Geeky capsule, even though, … More Pattern Review: BWOF-03-2007-126 (Spring Sew Geeky)

Pattern Review: BS-11-2016-109 Blouse (Stash Contest Entry #4)

I’ve been making a rather leisurely attempt at participating in the Pattern Review Stash contest, but the way I figure is that it’s sort of a collective effort to sew as much as possible, so in that sense, at least I’m contributing a bit.  This next piece isn’t much of a stash buster, using up … More Pattern Review: BS-11-2016-109 Blouse (Stash Contest Entry #4)

Pattern Review: New Look 6298 Teal Knit Dress (Stash Contest Entry #3)

Or, “In which I sew like a dumbass, but am saved by questionable pattern drafting and stretchy fabric.”  Truly, this dress should not fit, yet, here we are.  I was a bit dubious about New Look 6298 when it first came out, yet the idea of a slouchy knit dress won me over, and I’ve … More Pattern Review: New Look 6298 Teal Knit Dress (Stash Contest Entry #3)

I finished the fourth top for my Wardrobe Sudoku the same day I made the third top.  I have to say that this was probably the simplest to make (which is saying something because they were all pretty straightforward), and also quite possibly my favorite.  I’ve been obsessed with this style ever since I bought … More Pattern Review: BWOF-02-2008-119A (Wardrobe Sudoku Item #5)

Pattern Review: BS-11-2014-109 (Pattern Review Sewing Bee Round 2 Entry)

So, about a week ago the results from the Pattern Review Sewing Bee Round 1 were announced… And I made it!  There was definitely some freaking out going on over here.  I may or may not have burst into song. Anyway, my shorts qualified me to round 2, the bias challenge! When the contest was … More Pattern Review: BS-11-2014-109 (Pattern Review Sewing Bee Round 2 Entry)

Pattern Review: BS 03-2016-113 (Pattern Review Sewing Bee Round 1 Entry)

In my last post I mentioned that I’ve been feeling the sewing bug bitting pretty hard lately.  Which is why, after seeing an Instagram post, I decided this would be a great time to enter the Pattern Review Sewing Bee. When the rules for the first round came out I was a bit floored – … More Pattern Review: BS 03-2016-113 (Pattern Review Sewing Bee Round 1 Entry)
