Sew LaLa Rumi Top

I knew I had to have this pattern when it got released, and I bought it right away. It looks a little bit similar to the Envelope Dress that I sewed a couple years ago, but it’s quite a bit different. I really like that the Envelope Dress is a no waste pattern, but the neckline wasn’t very comfortable for … Continue reading “Sew LaLa Rumi Top”

Faux Leather Hudson Pants

Hi friends! It’s been a while! We’ve had lots of family visiting and lots of house projects going on over the past two months, and I did not have the mental capacity to blog (or find a new place to take pictures). So, I allowed myself to take a break, and it was great. But I’m excited to back sharing … Continue reading “Faux Leather Hudson Pants”

Marlo Sweater Obsession

Sometimes I make the same pattern multiple times and then try to decide if it’s worth blogging about. Then I remember that this is The Sewing Things Blog and that I just sew the things that I love. And if I love them, then I will probably make them multiple times. And if anything, you’ll see the same pattern sewn … Continue reading “Marlo Sweater Obsession”

Thread Theory Olya Shirt

I feel like I always have in the back of my mind how long it’s taken me to use a fabric and pattern that I’ve had for a really long time. I bought this fabric in 2018 to make this exact shirt, then I bought the pattern for it in 2020, and then again in 2021 on accident because procrastination … Continue reading “Thread Theory Olya Shirt”

Denim Free Range Slacks

I had a major itch to have some better pants to wear and that kicked my butt into gear to sew these Free Range Slacks. I saw some really cute denim elastic waisted pants on Candace M. Read last October, and knew I had to recreate something similar. Out of the few pants patterns that I’ve made so far, the … Continue reading “Denim Free Range Slacks”

Dresses for Valentine’s

I haven’t sewn a dress in almost two years. That seems crazy when I think about how many dresses and skirts that I sewed when I first learned to sew. I made so many favorites though, and it makes me smile when I see my closet full of pretty dresses that I MADE. In the spirit of slow fashion and … Continue reading “Dresses for Valentine’s”

Hey June Halifax Hoodie

This is a very late blog post and I will try my best to include all of the information that I usually do, but I made this 2+ years ago. In October 2021, I made my family dinosaur hoodies for Halloween, and I apparently never blogged about it! I did post it on Instagram, but a blog post wasn’t on … Continue reading “Hey June Halifax Hoodie”
