In the throes of summer sewing, I thought I might need to make the most summer apparel of them all: a swim suit.

A couple of weeks ago, I was mindlessly scrolling through instagram, enjoying everyone’s Me Made May wears, and I stumbled upon a post from Itch to Stitch requesting pattern testers.

I wanted to make the longline version of the bra this time, so I used the… Continue reading Dusty Mauve Watson Set
After a couple weeks of not sewing and of feeling miserable for some strange reason, I realized that sewing is my self-care. It’s frustrating and annoying and sometimes it makes me want to cry, but in spite of all the projects I’ve put aside when they were so close to done because they didn’t fit… Continue reading Maritime Shorts
