Indiesew Style Post | How We Wear the Willamette Shirt by Hey June

My second  Shirt Month make is finished! The  Willamette Shirt by Hey June turned out to be a surprisingly quick and easy sew and I couldn't be happier with how it turned out. So, what makes this pattern such a breeze? Well, there's no collar stand. The collar is sewn right into the neckline curve. Front facings create a clean finish, with no fiddly blind topstitching required. Because the design . . .

Indiesew | How We Wear It: Lander Pant

If you’ve been following along with our  Instagram stories, then you know how much I love the  Lander Pant sewing pattern by True Bias. I’ve been coveting the  Kamm Pants for years, but haven’t been able to swallow the $400 price tag.

Pattern Comparison: Lakeside and Reef Pajamas | Handmade Pajama Sets Comparison Post

I have a confession to make. I've never sewn myself a pair of pajamas. Despite the countless cozy chic loungewear sewing patterns  on the market, my sleepwear is pilling t-shirts and my boyfriend's hand-me-down sweatpants. This summer it was even more apparent that I didn't have any hot weather pajamas. When the temperatures soared to 100 degrees in the daytime here in Colorado, it was only . . .
