Sew Here We Go!

Fall is HERE!

Winter is here and I can feel the cold seeping into my bones! Time to make a wardrobe change. I’m venturing into sewing with knits. Also looking at making some layering pieces. The weather here has been all over the extremes. It concerns me about the climate. When I was a kid the skies were the bluest of blue, and stars shown at night so you could see the milky way without trying. Now those are just a memory. Sustainability is in the forefront of my mind. What a perfect time to think about reuse, repurpose, and recycling the clothes closet. I requested from friends and neighbors to send my way any old jeans so I could use them to make jeans jackets. I used the STACIE pattern from Style Arc that has become my favorite jeans jacket pattern. My blog about sewing is becoming full of tips and tricks to get you through your sewing projects. My first project was a sewing tutorial on the Style Arc Ziggi Moto Jacket. I piled tons of photos in the Ziggi sewing tutorial in hopes it helps you visualize your project and get you through to the finish line with a jacket you will be proud to wear. I kept going with a few makes from Style Arc such as the Lauren Boyfriend Shirt and the Sacha shirt. Both made it to the blog so far. Much more to come in the future. I’m trying out all kinds of indie patterns along with the major companies we all know so well too. Please come back often and check out what’s new! I’ve put a search link at the bottom to help you find the pattern tutorial you’re looking for. Keep in mind the tutorials in my blog are based on how I constructed the garment and not necessarily how the designer had in mind. All my comments are my opinion and only my opinion… Sew…here we go!

  1. Hi there! I was looking for a Style Arc knit top pattern, and stumbled upon your website. I’m so glad! Although I’ve been sewing for decades, I’ve mainly made bags, purses, placemats, etc. Oh – and masks – I’m so over making masks for family and friends 😄. Your tutorials with photos will be perfect for me. Also, your styles match the clothes I want to make for myself – flattering and comfortable. Thank you for the wonderful work you do!
