Wait for me...

I'm going to join in!

The first week should be easy since I'm still house-bound and unable to drive and it is way too cold to go outside. All kidding aside, Sarah over at Good-bye Valentino / Hello Needle and Thread is hosting a Ready-to-Wear fast. 

I love this idea. I'm so sick of ill-fitting cuts, cheap fabrics and less than perfect sewing found in RTW and fast-fashion clothing. And I can sew. 

Happy Sewing!  


  1. I want to join this! My ownly downfall is pants, and since two of my only well fitted jeans are about to die, I really need to replace them (and I'm not up to it just yet, sewing wise). But at the same time, there's nothing but crap available here in Whitehorse, and I am currently unemployed... Hmmm.

    Good luck with your No RTW year! :D I know you can do it!!

    1. Heather if you could whip together that beautiful winter coat, I'm sure you wouldn't have trouble with a pair of jeans! I say go for it.

      Jeans are also on my want-to-make list too. I think I figured out my body quirks to give it a try (size 14 crotch length, size 16 outer leg and size 20 inner leg). I have more hips to my waist ratio. It worked for the last couple of dress pants I made so I'm keeping my fingers crossed the same formula works for my jean project.


The Eva Dress by Tessuti

This is my first project using Tessuti patterns and I'm even more impressed with how it turned out than I was when the patterns arrived...
