Hello, my sewing friends. Things are a bit scary out there, aren't they? So many events shutting down, schools closing, and the first prospective case of COVID-19 has been reported in my county. My close sewing friends and I all fall into the high-risk categories, so I'm feeling a bit nervous.
I don't know about you, but at times like this my hobbies become even more important to me as a way of dealing with stress and keeping my mind occupied. I've been spending a lot of time out in my garden planting vegetables, and at my sewing machine with some quilting and easy sewing projects. I hope you are finding the same sort of comfort in your crafting projects too. On that note, I decided to have a pattern sale in the hopes that this weekend we can all stay in and do a bit of mindless sewing with some easy projects.
Now until March 20, 2020 all patterns are 20% off when you use coupon code STAYHOMEANDSEW. This coupon works both in my pattern store on this website and my Etsy store.
Stay calm and sew on. And wash your hands :) Be safe, my friends, I'll be praying for all of us.
Even though my valentine is far away this year, I made myself a pretty (and comfortable!) magenta lace set for Valentine's Day!
I'm so happy to share with you my new pattern, Elodie Briefs!
While I love wearing different styles of undies, full-coverage briefs are my favorite these days. I've nearly worn out almost all the pairs of Daisy Briefs I've made, so I decided it was time to make another brief pattern.
This week has been cold and dreary, so can I pretend that spring is coming soon with sunny skies and flowers?
Last week I sewed up this shirt out of llama printed flannel using a self-drafted pattern. When I showed it to my husband and mentioned I had fabric leftover, he said, "I'd totally wear a shirt out of that fabric!" But there wasn't enough leftover to make a shirt, and I was trying to think up an alternate project.
I wore the shirt a few days later to my quilting bee and told the story to my friends, and they said, "Make him boxer shorts instead!" Hah! What a good idea.
I don't have a pant block drafted to my husband's measurements, and didn't have time to make one, so I decided to just go search for a boxer short pattern. I found 400 Oak Street by Green Style Creations.
They sewed up pretty quickly and I'm pleased with how they came out. Whether they fit or not remains to be seen; these are a Valentine's Day present.
I didn't see many reviews for this pattern, so I'll give you a short summary of the pros and cons.
I design lingerie sewing patterns for everyday comfort and feminine style in an inclusive size range. Fill up your underwear drawer with beautiful custom made panties in your favorite fabrics and trims, designed to fit your body.
