Haven’t sewn a thing

October 27, 2013

I’m still here. A lot has changed over the last few months. I have another new job which is closer to home but I have a lot of training to get through and not a lot of time to sew.

I’ve also lost weight so that means fitting. Again. My TNT patterns are too big. I should start there with re-fitting.

Beginning in November 2013, I’m going to sew or fit one item per month.

Tomorrow, I’m going to buy muslin. Wish me luck 🙂

Omg! I need fitting classes again. Epic fail on a simple pattern Simplicity 2215. Trying not to be discouraged 😦

Ancient Bras

Did you read about this?

600-year-old linen bras found in medieval Austrian castle content.usatoday.comFour linen bras found in a medieval castle indicate that the undergarments were in use long before traditionally believed.


It just might get me sewing bras again.  

I’m still getting use to my new job so no real sewing going on yet.

New Job = Not a lot of time to sew

June 17, 2012

Hi everyone

I started my new job in March.  Since then, I haven’t had a lot of time to blog.  I’ve been making muslins of skirts and blouses.  I hope things at work slow down enough for me to get some really sewing time in.


Take care,

I picked up my very first purchase with  Now, it’s all Carolyn’s fault.  She spread the word that was having a sale on Designer fabric.   So I HAD to buy some 🙂  I bought 3 yards of yummy Ralph Lauren Stretch Wool Suiting on sale!  I wish I’d bought more fabric in different colors.’s warehouse is in Marietta so it was easy for me to drive up to get my order during lunch.    I will be doing business with again.
