As I am beginning to spend more time indoors, I have noticed something: I am beginning to accumulate way too much stuff. Too many beauty products, too much fabric left over from college projects, and definitely WAY too many clothes. Throughout college, I prided . . .

How to Style a Wrap Dress for Fall

How to Style a Wrap Dress for Fall | Indiesew.com

Lately, I've been really inspired to experiment with the clothes in my closet. If left to my own somewhat lazy devices I would wear a pair of jeans and a  Kila Tank every single day. But as the weather is turning cooler here in Boulder, I decided to pull some of my less worn items out of the closet and see what outfits I could come up with. This red printed  Highlands Wrap Dress is a piece that I . . .

Cozy for Fall: Wrapped Cardigan

Indiesew | Cozy for Fall: Wrapped Cardigan Sewing Pattern

For the past few mornings here in Colorado, we've woken up to a significant chill in the air. No longer am I rolling out of bed in a tank top and shorts and making breakfast with the windows open. It's finally time to layer up, and I couldn't be happier about it. Typically for weather like this, I'm reaching for my  Wrapped Cardigan by Seamly. This week, I wanted to show you a different way to . . .

My involvement in the Indiesew community started 3.5 years ago, when Allie reached out to me, asking me to do a guest post on the Indiesew blog ( my FIRST indie pattern! ). Looking back makes me realize just how far I’ve come since then, because I remember the exact post I had just written on my own blog when she emailed me…and it wasn’t very good. Haha. But Allie must have seen that I was making . . .

Karen's Silk Jade Dress

(Karen used Indiesew's Red Geo Crepe Silk fabric  for this post) Do you ever have an “ah ha” moment, something Merriam-Webster defines as “a moment of sudden realization, inspiration, insight, recognition, or comprehension”? A few weeks ago, a light came on and I realized that when it comes to sewing, my brain works like a combination lock. You know – like The Italian Job or similar movie where . . .

For over a month now, we’ve had a super luxurious fabric sitting on our shelves that didn't translate well in flat photos. In the office, we’ve all been brainstorming what to sew in this  Heather Grey Stripe Rib Knit  to give you all a better idea of how this fabric drapes and moves.  Angie, our Marketing Director, mentioned that I should sew a  Monarch Jacket in it, something I hadn’t . . .

I was beyond excited to test sew Allie Olson’s new  Monarch Jacket pattern. I just knew that I would get a ton of wear from this structured, boxy, knit jacket and now that spring is here, I’m wearing almost everyday! This cropped jacket is perfect for everyday wear. It feels comfy and casual like your favorite sweatshirt and elevates an everyday look. Most of my favorite garments feel like . . .
