Leyvie Bag

My latest purse.  The pattern is by Whistlepig Creek Productions.  It calls for fat quarters.  I find that the cotton of fat quarters wears out quickly where it rubs against my body so I went for...

Evening Gown

I made this dress to wear to an evening event.  The pattern is only sleeveless but I wanted sleeves since it is cold here in December so I added them.  The fabric is crepe back satin with a lace...

StyleArc Jane Overshirt

This is the StyleArc Jane Overshirt.  Directions are somewhat minimal but enough to get it done.  I did have trouble with the sleeve - I had intended to make it 3/4 length but had trouble with the...

Lace Dress

I made this dress for my dauther based on a piece of lace I had that she liked and a picture of a RTW dress she found.  I used McCall 6460 to get started on the bodice and McCall 5292 to get started...

3/4 sleeve striped shirt

Love this pattern - McCall's 2309.  It is a comfortable shirt to wear.  I am pleased that I was able to get the stripes lined up - they kept slipping on me.

Barn Jacket

Iron Carrier

Just finished this today.  It's an iron carrier (this is not my pattern - TC Designs - I purchased it from Nancy's Notions).  I wanted to make one - I taught a sewing class at church over the...

Vogue dress

This dress was made using Vogue 8021 - loved this pattern.  The fabric is an embroidered tone-on-tone fabric. It's a linen-like fabric.

Satin Jean Jacket

This polyester satin made up nicely into this jacket.  It is unlined but I did use a linen for the facings and inside collar band.  

Blazer from Butterick 5568

I made this blazer following the pattern without any edits.  I found the collar a little confusing but worked it out.  I stenciled the front side facing lining for fun and had to add an interlining...

I'm eyeing the peplum top because I've been wanting to make one but love all the pieces (16-24).
