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”

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 “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”

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 “Halifax Hoodie”

Sweater Weather – Part 1

You might be wondering why I named this ‘part 1’. It’s because I have a few sweaters to share, but I didn’t want to have to write separate blog posts for them, since I’ve made them all before. Plus, all of these sweaters are made from fabric that I got from one fabric store, so grouping them together made sense. … Continue reading “Sweater Weather – Part 1”
