Sunday I wondered around Alberta Street in my sweet new Peony dress I made from a lovely black and white striped cotton I picked up at the Bolt Sale last weekend.

Erica and I are IN LOVE with Sewaholic’s Minoru jacket pattern. So in love, in fact, that we have made 8 jackets between the two of us! The pattern provides the perfect raincoat for our Oregon winters, a super sweet vintage wool coat or the ideal lightweight windbreaker.
We are adding new classes almost every week this time of year! From quilting to garment sewing, classes perfect for beginners and those that already sew! There is always something perfect for your skill level and interests on the schedule at MD!
We can’t wait! This Wednesday from 6-8pm we will celebrate local fabulousness Colette Patterns with Sarai herself and loads of her beautiful samples as well as a great pattern sale!
Please join us Wednesday, September 19th from 6-8pm for a lovely evening of all things Colette! We love a reason to throw a party, and the release of two new much anticipated patterns from a lovely local pattern making star is a simply fantastic one!

A few weeks back, Erica, Amy and I all bought dress forms. The thing is, when you get a dress form, RARELY does it fit your exact dimensions. A custom made dress form will run you well over $1000, so instead, our dear Amy Alan taught Erica and me how to customize our dress forms… Read more »
MD has been a fan of Sewaholic patterns for a few months now. Ever since Erica proposed teaching the Minoru Jacket pattern (I have now made three!) we have been great supporters of Tasia’s patterns. She makes patterns to flatter the pear shaped body. Yes, that’s me and so many others. Baby got back! When… Read more »
