Victory Chloe

By Debbie Christensen on  •  1 Comment

Here it is, the Victory Chloe Dress! If you shop in our store, you may have seen this on display for quite a while. It took me probably as long to blog about this dress as it did to make it, which is  a long time! This dress was finished about three weeks ago, in […]

By on  •  0 Comments

Ah, fall. I hope you all are enjoying your various fall activities. Last weekend I canned tomatoes and went apple picking. Actually, I picked up a bag of pre-picked apples, because both orchards we tried were picked out. Can’t win ‘em all. And I have started wearing scarves. Look at this one I just made! […]

Just in time for the end of summer, I’ve made a tropical-print summer dress! Actually, I’ll probably wear it all year… And it feels like summer has only just begun! This is the Sewaholic Saltspring in Suno Tropical Knit. I debated making this for a while because I wasn’t sure if it would be super […]

Remember when I said I would make another dress from the Deer & Doe Datura Blouse? Well I did that, almost immediately after I committed myself to it. Unfortunately, making something and blogging about it are two completely different kettles of fish. Why can’t projects just blog about themselves? Anyway, we’re still out of stock […]

Funghi Capelet

These patterns have been tempting me ever since Nan brought them back from her trip to Barcelona last year. They are so elegant and simple, very European. I just love the way Paco Peralta creates these patterns, too. He traces everything by hand, and handwrites all the little pattern notes in Spanish and English. So […]

Hi again! Remember that floral lace dress I had almost finished? The pattern is Vogue 8146 in case you wanted to find it. This is a great, basic dress pattern. I actually used the top half for a bodice pattern for another dress, which you will see shortly! So I’m of average height, and this […]
