Today we have a guest post by Michelle (@sew_fearlessly_michelle), who is very much hoping for a spring break getaway to escape the winter blues. Her new tapered leg Montauk Trousers are just the ticket for that balance between relaxed vacationer and not a tacky tourist. Here’s Michelle.   View this post on Instagram   A post shared by Michelle (@sew_fearlessly_michelle) *** Fancy Joggers One wonderful summer day, so very many years ago, I found myself on a train with my brand new husband. We were in northern Italy. The train was a little grubby looking, and so were we. Upon reac ..read more

Hello friends! I’ve been out of action for a few weeks between travel, COVID, and knee surgery. But now that I’m in recovery I’ll have lots of quality time with my laptop, so you can expect to hear from me more frequently! I don’t know about you, but with the new year I’ve got lots of sewing ambition! So many things I want to make. I spent the morning shopping for fabric online (it’s my only option for the next month or so), and I found some terrific options at this store in Belgium that carries Dries van Noten deadstock, not to mention deadstock from a lot of other designers. (Shhh, consider ..read more

Introducing the alvalade men’s trousers pattern

by Liesl Gibson

Here’s something we haven’t done in a while: introduce a new men’s pattern! The Alvalade Men’s Trousers are a classic slim-cut trouser style with zipper fly, angled front pockets, back welt pockets, and a straight leg. Plus, they include a special waistband that expands to make this style really comfortable so you can wear them anywhere: sofa to boardroom. In fact, if this description sounds familiar it’s because they’re exactly like our Peckham Women’s Trousers! We thought it would be nice to have the same style available for both men and women. It’s such a classic style, it only makes sense ..read more

The Garibaldi Skirt pattern is so versatile, and we love seeing every different version! Today KaiLee shares her new Garibaldi Skirt and how she styles it for a night out on the town. Take it away, KaiLee. Hi! I’m KaiLee Long, and I am so excited to be chatting with you about the Garibaldi Skirt pattern! Choosing this pattern was a no-brainer because I’ve admired and even rented this type of skirt for fun occasions. Every time I see or wear these, I think, “I bet I could make this,” so I finally decided it was time to sew my own. The pattern comes with a few different options, but I decided t ..read more

We love Neha’s mashup of the Strasbourg Henley and the Garibaldi Skirt to create the perfect night dress! She’s on the blog today to show us how she did it. Take it away, Neha! I’ve wanted to make a Henley-style nightdress for a while now, and the two new patterns from Liesl were just what I needed! Enter the Strasbourg Henley Top and the Garibaldi Skirt. This project was a really easy sew, and I had to make very few modifications. For the torso, I traced view B version of the Strasbourg Henley, grading from Medium at the bust to Large at the hips. Typically, I remove two inches from top leng ..read more

Mire’s strasbourg henley makes: same shirt, different fabric
Oliver and S
by Lyndsey Stanfill
1M ago
We love these Strasbourg Henley makes by Mire! See how a pattern transforms depending on fabric selection. When creating my sewing plans, part of my process is searching for sewn examples to get a feel for how a pattern will look in different fabrics. A single pattern can look different depending on fabric choice: print or solid, weave or knit pattern, and hand. Mire has created three different versions of the Strasbourg Henely. Her first version used a printed jersey knit in size small. With a large-scale print, Mire could play with pattern placement to create a nice vertical line drawing th ..read more

Asmita’s garibaldi skirt

We love the vibrant red Garibaldi Skirt sewn by Asmita! This post describes how she quickly added a lining to the skirt. Take it away, Asmita! When the Garibaldi skirt pattern was released, I was excited because, for the longest time, I wanted a skirt exactly like this but had not found the right pattern to make it. I was also itching to sew something with a fabric other than cotton or linen (my go-to choices), and an A-line skirt seemed simple enough to do just that. Because I was planning to make a skirt in a new to me fabric, I decided to stick to the simpler silhouette and go with version ..read more

Visiting us today is Erica, from the Advisors’ Circle. We love the wardrobe of trousers that Erica has sewn with Liel + Co patterns. She previously shared her Montauk Trousers and Hollywood Trousers. Today Erica is sharing her denim Peckham Trousers! Take it away Erica. I have been thinking about sewing myself a pair of jeans for several years because truth be told, it might be my most commonly worn style of trousers if I am not wearing wool trousers or at-home loungewear. I had been feeling some trepidation about attempting to make jeans, but I’ve been inching towards the plunge by ..read more
