A Lengthened Driftless Cardigan

Hello from New Orleans!  I’m down here all this week for work, getting ready to relocate an archival collection from here to St. Louis.  It’s amazing down here — I’m staying basically next door to Audubon Park and in a beautiful old house.  I’ve spent my evenings reading a book on the front porch and

A Perfect White Jeanne Tee Shirt

Sewing the perfect tee shirt is hard, isn’t it?  I can find tee shirts I love very easily in stores — Gap and Target’s v-necks have long been a staple in my wardrobe.  But when it comes to making them, I’ve been at a loss for a long time.  It’s a mix of not being

Lengthened Kalle Shirtdress

By now it’s not a shocker that I luuuuuurve the Kalle shirtdress.  Like, totally love.  The fact that I had two separate Kalles in my blog backlog that I could post this month is evidence enough!  I really feel like today’s Kalles return to their roots, though.  It’s because they’re directly inspired by the OG
