October 2018 Make for MCBN - Deer and Doe Lupin Jacket Review

I have finally tackled a jacket!! To be honest, I wasn’t sure if this was something I would ever be that interested in trying. Outerwear, other than jersey cardigans, has always intimidated me.

Deer and Doe Cardamome Dress WIP Progress 1

As you may have seen from this post, I’ve made one version of the Deer and Doe Cardamome dress so far. I cannot express how pleased I am with how it turned out and I immediately started digging through my stash to find fabric for a second version.

September 2018 Make for MCBN

Do you have a specific independent sewing pattern company that you just cannot seem to get and use enough of their patterns? I do! I am still obsessed with Deer and Doe. I am determined to make nearly every one of their patterns.

The Reglisse dress is my second time using Deer and Doe patterns and I've become a bit obsessed. Their pattern designs are gorgeous and just my style. The instructions are good, if a bit sparse at times. (Nothing a google search can't help with.) And the finished projects are just so pretty.

Episode 43: The Holiday is Done

Hello my dears,

I've finally managed to find the time to film another episode for my podcast! I have knitting, two very successful sewing projects, some stash enhancement, and the usual life updates. It has been over a month since the last episode so I definitely felt a bit rusty. But I am so glad to be back! I hope you enjoy,
