  • Updates on Kendra’s Wardrobe Plans

  • Polka Dot Moss Skirt

    My first finished project of 2013 also happens to be my new favorite skirt and my 4th (I think) Moss Skirt. I got this fabric on an IKEA trip; I just couldn’t pass it up especially since I was itching to sew something and my fabric was all still in boxes at the time. Funny […]

    The first Autumn Wardrobe garment is complete! This is the Moss Mini Skirt with the hem band attached in self fabric (View B).

  • Summer Wardrobe | Recap

    I thought it might be fun to do a little roundup on my summer wardrobe before I move into fall and see how things went based on my original illustrations. I didn’t make everything I had planned but I think I did pretty well. I only omitted the 2 long sleeved shirts and blazer, it […]

    It’s time for the last garment in my Summer Wardrobe sewing!

  • a trio of socks

    sock 1 | sock 2 | sock 3 I used to think it was crazy that anyone would knit their own socks. Literally, totally insane. Then I knit a pair a while back because I felt like, in order to call myself a knitter, I needed to make one pair of socks if only to […]
