Project in the works (Hint: more menswear!)

I'm not quite ready to reveal my most recent (big!) project, but here're a sneak peeks and some thoughts about it...
  • This project marked the first time I've used shoulder pads (!).  I sewed during the late 80s and 90s, so that's kind of impressive.
  • My own blood, sweat, and tears (well, maybe not tears) went into this endeavor.  Here's the forensic evidence to prove it.  Thankfully, the garment is for my very own husband!
  • I've been working on making nice, crisp corners and I think it's coming along!  And I'll write up a tutorial soon so your corners can be awesome too :)  Check out this little bit of lovely (that's brown wool melton and forest green Bemberg lining):
  Oh, I can't help it...one more photo!  I love this little leather button:
Many more photos and a full post will follow shortly!


  1. Pretty sure I have this lovely item in my queue for my sons--once it's released, that is ;-). Can't wait to see how yours turns out....and the all-important review!

    1. You are good! Yes, it is the Goldstream--I was lucky enough to have the chance to test the pattern out. It's a good one!
