Late last year, I blogged about a 1950s jumper dress that I sewed and I still really love that dress. It's the perfect thing to layer over a turtleneck when it's chilly. And it's only early early spring, so it's definitely still chilly! All it needed was some quick sewing knits projects. Which... I didn't do. But frankly, continuing to wear that dress a lot (and planning a similar one soon) meant I no longer had an ... Read more »

Hello, friends! I greet you after a road trip to visit family over Christmas, with a project I sewed and photographed a few weeks ago but hadn't had the time to write about.

Two-stripe Legendaire pullovers
In April, I released my Legendaire pullover knitting pattern (get it on Ravelry or Payhip). I still love this pattern so much, particularly the wide short turtleneck of Version 1.
