Vogue 1349 ala Alabama Chanin
As I sit here on the train, I realised it has really been a long time since my last post. So I thought I would a least post a couple of my recent finishes. Some time after the first season of Outlander aired and the internet was abuzz over the show, Lion Brand released some… Continue reading Crochet again!
Indigo Star Variations
Yeah. Because it's not enough to make the blanket according to the original instructions. And actually, because I opted to use Inklingo to create the shapes, it's already different and adding a few more of my own choices make the blanket truly my own. Right? Right!So I recreated the original pattern in EQ7 so I… Continue reading Indigo Star Variations
Liesl and Co. Maritime knit top
I finally squeezed in the time to make this shirt. As I learned with the Oliver + S Secret Agent Coat, the instructions were excellent and I didn't have to unpick any seams.

My October deadline is looming, but I put my head down and got the quilting done! And the binding made and machine-sewn on! You can still see the blue lines I drew for the inner circles of quilting. Can't find my spray bottle, so I'll soak it in cold water after I sew down the binding… Continue reading Quilting complete!
We had a superhero costume party to go to and Hellboy was suggested as the costume to make. I knew that Oliver + S had a trenchcoat pattern, and thanks to Alabama Chanin and the tea party dress, I've been eyeing off their patterns for a few years now. So I jumped at the excuse… Continue reading Hellboy Costume
So here are a few photos of the quilting done so far. Do you think I should add another inner circle of quilting? Technically, I think this enough quilting for the batting, but I do feel that it could use more from an aesthetic point of view.
