 The lovely Amanda just brought to my attention that my Sorbetto Redux (of recent cat destruction fame) is the Member Project of the Week over at BurdaStyle!


I'm so flattered to have been featured there twice now, despite not being the most productive sewist on the block. The whole online sewing community is so full of love and support!

I do find it a little funny/sad that in this post, wihch I made the last time I was featured (in July), I was planning on getting going on making up my Lonsdale and Bombshell dresses. Fast forward five months and they're still the next two projects in my queue! Oopsie.

In fact, I've been doing a lot of thinking about sewing and my wardrobe/style (or lack thereof, these days), and I think I need to get over this weird aversion to sewing dresses I seem to have developed. Especially considering that they're the reason I got back into sewing, and the only thing I actually really want to add to my wardrobe at the moment! Hopefully I'll actually get these two made, at least.

But I suppose in the meantime I should make the time to repair this little top, because I sure did love wearing it before my little friend got his claws on it!


  1. Congrats again! I had wondered if they contacted people selected for the "project of the week" but I guess not. I also signed up for the bombshell class, but haven't gotten around to it. I had wanted it to be my New Year's dress, but that's not going to happen at this point!

  2. Aren't you fabulous! But seriously, gotta pick up the pace :-)

  3. congratulations! That is so exciting. Keep up the good work


  4. Congratulations! Was looking for different versions of Sorbetto and ended up on yours. Really lovely... Now allI have to do is make it happen, somehow!
