Take a class with me! AKA Sewaholic Head to Toe


Hey guys! Just wanted to let you know that there are some new classes posted on The Fabric Studio's website, so if you're in the Nashville area I'd love to see you in one of them.

I'll be teaching the adorable Sewaholic Belcarra Blouse class on Sept 17th and 24th from 6-9pm. This is a really good project if you've sewn before but have never made a garment [or even if you have!]


I made the class sample out of a Kokka lawn, and I mean LOOK AT IT.


I know there is still some of it left in the shop. And if you're not local you can get some from Nancy's etsy shop!


My other new class is the Sewaholic Rae Skirt. This is a really great project for beginners - even if you've never really made anything before! [You do need to know how to generally thread your machine.]

The sample I made is out of the dreamy, much-pined-after Robert Kaufman chambray. It's so soft and luscious. This is View C, the longer one, which is a little longer than I usually like but I wanted to make it straight out of the envelope. Also Pinterest told me this morning that "'Audrey-Hepburn-length' skirts are being sighted on the streets of New York," so I think that means it's ok.


Also that belt... I thought I liked it but looking at the pictures it's no bueno. Clearly I should have worn my red belt again.

I'm also teaching the much beloved Washi Dress pattern again, as well as a session of the Sewing 101 class. So visit The Fabric Studio's website to sign up, and let me know if you have any questions!

And just because, here's one more picture of that lawn:



  1. Ahhhhhhhhh don't need more fabric but I wannnnnt those dogs!!! Super cute outfit, dude!

  2. I had been on the fence about both of these patterns since I'm more of an intermediate/advanced sewer, but these look great together! I think you've sold me on them!

    1. I totally hear ya! But sometimes it's nice to sit down and make a new skirt in an hour.

  3. Those classes are ridiculously expensive :/

    1. i know they're not the smallest chunk o' change ever, but they do divide out to about $16 an hour, which isn't too crazy for specialized instruction. also the price of the pattern is included in the class fee.

  4. Not sure if this is the spot to ask this but I made up the belcarra and have some weird issues. First the neck band sits funny like standing up instead of laying flat against my skin. Second the sleeve cuffs are a bit constrictive? I feel like I could pull the whole shirt up at the shoulders and it feels better but not sure how to relate this to changing the pattern. Of course I thought this would be quick and easy sew with no fitting issues but alas sewing is just rarely that simple:) thanks for any suggestions!
