Man in Blue

I sometimes wonder what my go-to uniform would be if I were challenged to only wear one silhouette (one week one uniform, anyone?!).  It's an idea I'm having fun exploring these days, though I haven't come up with any easy answers so far.  Yet, when it comes to my husband, I know what his uniform would be - a… Continue reading Man in Blue

Sewing Gifts for the Holidays: A Renfrew

Silk Jersey Twisted Dress Redux – Shorter yet Warmer

Well, I did it again.  I made another one of BurdaStyle's Twisted Maxi Dresses out of one of Mood Fabric's silk jerseys. And, there was no oops about it.  I got so much use out of my first silk jersey maxi dress this summer that I just had to make another to carry me through… Continue reading Silk Jersey Twisted Dress Redux – Shorter yet Warmer
