The Waxed Cotton Jacket of My Dreams

by Jacey on November 20, 2017

When we were in Ireland this summer, my sister bought a beautiful green Barbour jacket. I tried it on and schlepped around the store for a while with her, dreaming about all the ways this jacket would change my life. It felt like luxury wearing it. And because green is obviously the new neutral, I […]

French Terry Inari Crop Top

by Jacey on October 4, 2017

Earlier this year I made a cropped Inari tee and it made me seriously interested in making another one in something with a little more stretch and drape. And as surprising as it is to admit, I actually followed through on it. Mic drop.

Tencel Denim Hudson Pants

by Jacey on May 27, 2017

Say hello to the newest addition to my closet – my Tencel denim Hudson Pants. My husband thinks they will be great “cottage pants”. I think that means he thinks I won’t be wearing these in public. Too bad I will literally be wearing them everywhere.

White Quilted Inari Crop Top

by Jacey on March 9, 2017

I’ve been thinking a lot about fashion and trends since I got heavy into the sewing. In the last five years or so, I have put a lot more of my creative energy into my house and decorating, and less into my clothing. Perhaps as a result, I’m finding it is taking me longer to […]

I thought I would join the virtual Moneta Dress Party going on on Instagram by sharing this floral Moneta Dress that I made last fall. Not exactly a brand new make, but new to the internet. #sorrynotsorry

Halifax Hoodie Sweater Dress

by Jacey on January 25, 2017

You guys. I made this. One of the things that I wanted to try this year was to start posting some of the items that I have been sewing. Which requires taking photos. Of myself. Ohhhhhh the torture. Taking photos is the basically the whole reason I have been putting this off. I’ve been pretty […]
