Wishful Thinking: Sorbetto top

Wishful Thinking shares projects that catch my eye — and their likelihood of completion. The Sorbetto top. The Sorbetto tank from Colette Patterns was a freebie this spring, and I feel like it showed up on all sorts of sewing blogs. Casey over at Elegant Musings even riffed on the pattern and gave it a […]


I make a cat situpon, they make a dress

Say, that fabric looks familiar…   Cruising through my Google Reader recently, I came across this post from BurdaStyle. The woman’s dress is the same fabric I used to make my cat situpon, as discussed in this post.   The Liberty of London fabric, in case you’re interested, is the Fordwych pattern in blue from […]

MVH didn’t even know I was washing a Rit-dyed garment, and I could feel him getting anxious across town. I didn’t panic. Of course there were a lot of bubbles. I washed […]

The big coverup

Lest you think all I do around here is eat, here’s a glimpse at a pair of clothing projects. I have a beach vacation coming up, and I need swimsuit coverups that are more stylish than an oversized Brewers T-shirt (charming as it may be). I want coverups that go from beach to cafe and […]
