Spring is HERE!

What an exciting time. June is here in all its glory. April showers brought May flowers and mine are all in bloom! It’s the start of a new season. What a perfect time to start a new blog about sewing, soon to be 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 Sasha shirt. Lauren 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!
