some #SaturdaySewing with a beer, naturally.

Seamwork Catarina Dress

What's this?!?  A dress?!?  I haven't sewn a dress in ages!  I had been so caught up in tops and tees and bras that I haven't sewn myself a dress in quite a while.  As with my Stripey Linen Scout Tee I posted the other day, this baby was sewn up at the end of Me Made May 2016, so naturally I'm getting around to posting about it at the very end of July.



Stripey Linen Scout Tee

See!  I'm still alive!  My sew-jo (and blog-jo... is that a thing?) has been severely lacking as of late, and I've been busy busy with summery things!  Apologies for the lack of posts.  I swear I'm still going with this project - with minimal cheats (I bought another 2 roller-derby tops... whoops!).

For those of you who followed my Me-Made-May 2016 adventure, you would have seen this tee at the end of the month when it started getting stinkin' hot here in Ottawa.



Bit of a Summer Break

Well, it's been a while since I last posted!  Sorry about that... I do have a backlog of things to get up here, I just haven't had too much time.  That, and it's the summer and I have lots of other things going on.  I'll hopefully get some things up here soon :)


Chambray Seamwork Hayden Tee

Welp, they can't all be perfect... and this one definitely isn't.  When the Seamwork Hayden Tee pattern came out I thought, "Oooooh!  Lovely!" Well... now that I've sewed one up, I can't say I feel the same way.  I'm not putting all the blame on the pattern - I definitely am at fault for this thing turning out not-so-great... I just am really disappointed with how this turned out.



Three Little Watson Bras

Oh good gravy I haven't been great with this whole blogging thing.  It's the summer here in Ottawa, meaning it's hot and humid and my sewing room happens to be the hottest damn room in the apartment.  I'm also spending more time outside and out of the house than I do in the cooler seasons, so I'm really not getting tons done sewing wise.

Anyways!  I finished up these three Watson Bras a while back, and I've been meaning to share them.
