The Ali Sweatshirt

It seems a little crazy to be posting a sweatshirt right now.  Even though we’re over halfway through September (oh my god, how are we halfway through September), it’s still 95° F/35° C here in St. Louis.  Admittedly, that’s out of character for this time of the year, but even last year at this time

My Lander Shorts

Hello from California!  I’m out on the West Coast for a quick work trip, and hitting up Tampa on my way home to drop something off at one of our schools.  Everything’s on your way home when you’re in an airport, isn’t it?  I did finish my Lander Shorts for #SewMyStyle just in the nick

My Marigold Trousers

Another month has come and gone, and with it a #SewMyStyle2018 prompt!  It was so fun being the leader for April’s prompt, the Marigold Trousers, and I’m already looking forward to doing it again in the fall.  It’s always a little awkward talking about the patterns that maybe didn’t work for you so well —

Curious about height adjustments for the Kalle Shirtdress? I got you covered! >> MaddieMadeThis.com

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
