I could not be more thrilled to help Allie out with the launch of the new size range for her Allie Olson pattern line ! I first talked to Allie about this over the winter, and I know she has been working hard since then to get all the details right on the launch of her new and improved sizing . I've always been drawn to the styles of the Allie Olson patterns. They are practical designs that are . . .

How We Wear It: Frisco

How We Wear It: Frisco Jumpsuit by Threadbear

There's a design that I've been wearing all summer long, multiple times per week, that I haven't been able to tell you about. It's been worn to music festivals, farmers markets, and to the office many times. It is without a doubt, my favorite thing to wear in this current moment. It's, of course, the  Frisco Jumpsuit and Tank by Threadbear. Leslie has been working on this design for many months, . . .

How to Turn Fabric Tubes the Easy Way

Indiesew Tutorials | How to Turn Small Fabric Tubes the Easy Way

This summer, I've been turning a lot of itsy-bitsy little fabric tubes right side out. I sewed this  Ogden Cami slip dress and the  silk Ogden Cami you see in this post. And I quickly started to get  really frustrated with the process of trying to shove a long strip of fabric through a 3/8" opening. If you've been there, you know. My methods for turning tubes of fabric have run the gamut. In the . . .

How to Mashup the Birkin Flares and Ginger Jeans

Indiesew.com | How to Mashup the Birkin Flares and Ginger Jeans

Once, many years ago, I owned a single pair of painted-on true black skinny jeans that I wore constantly. I think they came from a fashion subscription box, long before I was sewing most of my own clothes, and were a brand I had never heard of.  I’ve been dreaming about recreating them ever since they completely wore out, except this time with a super high rise. So, when  Blackbird Fabrics had a . . .

Tessa's Cotton Linen Separates

Tessa's Cotton Linen Separates | Indiesew.com

I’m a classic over-packer. On a recent vacation I packed many “just-in-case” items only for them to never see the light of day. You would think I’d learn from experience, but you never know when you might need another pair of shorts, or shirt, or shoes. Not only do I have a plan B for most occasions, I also have a plan C. Just. In. Case. In an attempt to pare down my suitcase for our next . . .

Indiesew.com | Cloudless Fabric Batch

The days are gradually getting warmer here in Boulder and we couldn't be happier to launch a batch of fabrics that we're really excited to sew right now. When it starts to get hot, all I want to wear are natural fibers and cool colors. Our 19th fabric batch, Cloudless, checks both of those boxes with five airy fabrics. And we're obsessed with every single one:   Green Floral Cotton Voile This . . .

How to Sew an Ogden Cami Slip Dress

Indiesew.com | How to Sew an Ogden Cami Slip Dress

A sewing project entered my mind on Monday and by the end of the day Tuesday I had the finished item in hand, exactly how I imagined it. It rarely happens this way for me, I usually sit on sewing ideas for months, even years. Eventually they get replaced with other ideas and leave my brain altogether. But the pattern hack I had in mind was really simple. I had a maxi dress (the Lottie Dress , in . . .
