I’m going to start giving the details (when I can)–in case anyone’s interested–of every aspect of my outfit. Anyway, here ‘s a look at the last week! Continue reading
After the first few days of Me-Made-May, I can tell that this month is going to be a lot of fun. I feel so much better about myself when I put the effort in to look presentable, and wearing me-made items gives me a boost of confidence throughout the day. Taking pictures of myself every day is definitely going to get old, but hopefully, I can change it up and make it fun. Continue reading
It was a Sewaholic pattern day, apparently, because I paired my Renfrew with my Thurlow trousers…
I’ve had this vintage, light purple knit in my stash for a long time. I think I acquired it at a yard sale a couple years ago. It has a cute, raised Chevron pattern.
I cut the same size as my first Renfrew (4 at the bust and hips, curving to a 0 at the waist). However, the fit is much more snug than the first top because this knit has a lot less stretch than I realized. Continue reading
I’ve turned over a new leaf and cauliflower is behind it. Cauliflower used to be one of my least favorite vegetables until I got a little adventurous with cooking it. Now it’s my favorite substitution to make certain meals or snacks lower in calories.
As I shared yesterday, I’ve made Cauliflower Potato Soup a few times. I thought I’d share some other yummy cauliflower recipes with you. Continue reading
First, I have some patterns to give away. I will mail these to fellow sewers anywhere around the world…
As I was going through my wardrobe and making my plans for Me-Made-May, I realized that there are several items that I made over the past few years and rarely wore or only wore once or twice. These dresses deserve to be worn and loved. I can’t bear to give them to a thrift shop, so I thought I’d see if anyone out there might be interested in them… Continue reading
I haven’t shared a recipe in a while, but this one is worth passing along. It was a rainy day here yesterday, so it seemed like the perfect time for soup. Honestly, it’s probably one of the last days I’ll be able to make it for a while.
I’ve been making this soup since around this time last year, and I would strongly recommend it.
My husband isn’t a huge fan of cauliflower, but he likes this soup. I promise, it doesn’t taste like cauliflower. Continue reading
I know I’m behind the curve on this one, and the sewing blogosphere has been aflood with these for some time, but here’s my first Renfrew.
I opted to leave off the sleeve and hem bands and used my double needle for the hems. Continue reading
