The Making of a Superhero :: Captain America

On July 3rd, I decided that somehow none of our red, white and blue clothes were good enough to be worn this year for the 4th, and that I needed to stretch my sewing wings a little bit and make us some new tees.  I'm sure you know by now that I'm a huge fan of...

Pin Tucks + Suspenders :: 10 Year Anniversary Attire

Pin Tucks + Suspenders :: 10 Year Anniversary Attire

What was almost as exciting as my dress to make for our anniversary party were the boys' outfits!  I actually find sewing button-downs super satisfying because there is a level of perfectionism that is required and when you absolutely nail that collar or placket, you...

Master of None :: Goldstream Peacoat by Thread Theory

This is kind of a fun tale of how sewing actually saved money.  I know, I know....if you/your spouse/your significant other sews, you might be laughing your ass off at this statement.  Because you know that this hobby is a money pit.  Try "running into the store for...
