This is Not A Real Post

I have all manner of cool ideas to write about but I keep getting side tracked, or feel guilty for sitting down to write when I should be doing something constructive, like MAKE things, or clean things, or.. I dunno. DO ALL THE THINGS.

all the things... 
So there's that.

So instead I'll fall back on Instagram photos you've probably already seen. One is of the very solid CAKE TNT I'm working on, a work blouse.

I can't really recommend this pattern Vogue 8747 enough. A-D cup sizing, princess seams in front and back, a very elegant button placket. Once fitted its very slimming. It also points out the serious ratio difference between my shoulders and ribcage. O.o

And this was a package from the wonderful Katie. We had a little exchange, but I'm fairly certain I got the better end of the bargain. Sewcialists are so freakin' awesome. This was the perfect thing to come home to after a pretty rotten Monday.  Also, see that swimwear pattern? There's something special planned for y'all come May!  ;)

Ok, signing off.


  1. I think it's going to look beautiful!

  2. V8747 is on my list and has been for a while. Thanks for the endorsement—hopefully it will work out for me as well as it has for you.
