This Week in Sewing Blogs // Harry the Cavalier puppy

Happy Valentine’s Day everyone! It’s currently -25 in Montreal and I am unable to stay inside wrapped in a billion blankets eating my weight in chocolate because I have this adorable little dude who would just poop all over my house if I let him. When I’m not outside begging him to pee, I’m completely enraptured with the Snoqualmie Cardigan I started… and I have a fun announcement about that next week, so stay tuned if you’re as obsessed with knitting as I am this winter.

Here’s what you’ve been making.


This electric rose coat from Allie J. is drop dead stunning. Need to get my hands on that yardage for a show-stopping Clare Coat.

This 18th century corset from Wearing History is holy moly.

Sophie’s mix and match undies using Spoonflower fabric made my underwear drawer hang its head in shame.

Nothing is chic-er than a grey silk blouse, as evidenced by Lily Sage & Co.

If this black and white quilt from Bimble & Pimble doesn’t make you want to take up a new hobby, I don’t know what will.

A very cool circle skirt coat from Mokosha.

Speaking of circle skirts, love this brocade number from Lladybird.

Another great knit dress from Suzy Bee Sews this week; love the purple/lace combo.

Must buy buffalo check wool. Must copy True Bias.



If Guillaume plays his cards right, he may be getting a bow tie this year using this rad free pattern from Grainline Studio.

A great tutorial from the Curvy Sewing Collective on cloning RTW bras.


My knitting addiction explained? It’s good for us!
