All in Sewing

Needles and Thread in my Head: How Sewing Helped Me Find a Home in my Body

Sewing was a skill I learned when I was young and kept in my back pocket for many years. I would pull out my sewing machine like a party trick, occasionally making pillows and small accessories like zipper bags. I had the knowledge and the ability to sew garments, bestowed upon me by my grandmother when I was young. However, I didn’t find a necessity in sewing until I got fat. 

Twee Sailor Sundays: Cocowawa Crafts Lily Blouse Pattern Review

Long time, no sewing for myself. I actually have a few sewing projects I need to photograph and post here, but firstly I wanted to show off my Lily Blouse from Cocowawa Crafts! The absolutely lovely Ana of Cocowawa sent me this pattern to test, and I felt terrible because it launched right after Sewn Seeds so it took a while for me to actually make it. But once I finally busted it out I totally love it. 

Dark Femme Floral: Tilly and the Buttons Arielle Skirt

Today I'll be speaking about my Tilly and the Buttons' Arielle skirt. I really enjoyed making the skirt, and as with all Tilly patterns, the directions are clear and the product is flattering. I ALWAYS struggle with sizing, as my number sizes are always so significantly larger than the size of pattern I end up with, but this is not exclusive to Tilly, it usually happens with all patterns. Do I have reverse body dysmorphia? We just don't know.
