An 18th-century cardinal cloak is exactly something that Little Red Riding Hood would wear. So I made myself one and even designed a pattern!
I sewed and tested an Edwardian bathing costume and made a video out of it.
I decided to combine Edwardian pattern drafting with modern fabric and made a cute shirtwaist blouse that goes with both jeans and skirts.
I designed and sewed a pair of pleated trousers with an easy elasticated paper-bag waist. I used locally woven cotton-linen Kultavilla fabric.
This is my B5813 hack with wide v-neckline, button-up closure and lace trim details. On my second use of this pattern I also made changes to the fit.
It was time for me to practice my pattern drafting skills and I decided to make a vintage-inspired fit-and-flare dress out of rusty orange ramie fabric.
I decided to draft my own pattern for a boys teeshirt that would fit my son. My son then got to choose the jersey prints and got two unique teeshirts.
I made my daughter a Regency or Empire style outfit: a dress, a bonnet (a free pattern included!), bloomers and slippers. Read how it all came together.
Kuura is a free pdf pattern for a sleeveless vest meant for stretchy merino wool knit. Lace edgings and a ribbon bow add a bit femininity to this useful garment.
