(For the rest of the pictures it’s going to be be modelling it, but Anne kindly sent me … More Unblogged but not unloved!
Two weeks ago I posted about my tester version of the new Cashmerette Belmont leggings, and and mentioned how I hadn’t tried the top out yet… well, now I have! The Cedar pattern include a fitted workout tank which I’m not likely to ever make… and a loose dolman tee with an optional tie hem. … More Cashmerette Cedar Top – and how I added long sleeves!
Are you a ladyboss? Then this is the dress for you! Cashmerette Rivermont is a fitted ponte dress with lots of darts for shaping. It’s a really classic, business-appropriate style. To me it says, “Look at me! I’m hot, AND I’m in charge!” Which, I have to say, means it’s not the ideal dress for … More Cashmerette Rivermont Dress
This post originally appeared on the Curvy Sewing Collective for Pattern Hacking Month in August 2017, but I know not all of my readers are curvy and follow that site, so I wanted to repost it here!

Since then, I’ve … More Summer Sweaters
Guys, I’ve been holding out on you – there were Me-Made May photos you never saw! But this top was too cute to sit in my closet unworn all month. Meet the Cashmerette Webster Top and Dress! Let’s start here: It’s a woven, and I find it as comfortable as a knit! Design-wise, it’s a loose … More Cashmerette Webster Top!
I don’t join in many sewing competitions – but I had to jump on board Tanya’s Dress Like Your Grandma challenge! The ideas is to “take a photo of your grandma (or your grandpa, great-grandma, mom, aunt, someone else’s grandma — you get the idea!) and re-create an outfit or piece that they are wearing.” I … More Dress Like Your Grandma
In the least surprising news ever… I made a dress! From knits! With a Cashmerette pattern! It’s short, I like it, and I can wear it with any colour. There. That’s 75% of the review sorted… on to a few details and ramblings! 😉 The fabric is a textured polyester double knit that I bought … More Windowpane Concord Dress
As you can tell from the fall foliage, it’s been a while since I tested the Cashmerette Dartmouth top! It’s a good addition to Jenny’s line-up, and I’m happy to finally be able to talk about it! Dartmouth is a knit fixed cross-over top. I sewed the version with ruching at the sides, but there is … More Cashmerette Dartmouth Top
5 years ago, when I started sewing, it was a simpler time for indie patterns. There were just a few major companies, and only a small selection of patterns. Sewaholic Renfrew was (rightfully) a runaway hit – a tee designed to be sewn on just a sewing machine! I made so many before newer, shiner … More Con-frew, or Ren-cord: A TNT Mash-Up
