i just discovered that levi's is now making a line for urban cyclists. so far it's only men's, but i can see myself wearing these tough jeans on my daily commute. they are water and dirt repellent, have reinforced seams, and reflective tape on the cuffs. now what to do about helmet hair?

i'm in love with this jewelery! its handmade by a local gal, julie cooper. the stacked rings and hammered earrings have rarely left my body for more than a moment. the simplicity is what i find so beautiful, and knowing that it's handmade by a very talented woman also makes me love it. i couldn't find a website for julie, but you can find more of it here.

proper attire

this is the other class i'll be teaching, a two-parter on the 23rd and 30th. the pattern is by Anna Maria Horner, the proper attire skirt. it has piping along the front seams, an invisible zipper and is fully lined. there's still room for more students in this class too, it runs from 2-5 on these two days.
coming up this saturday the 23rd i'll be teaching the couture seam finishes class again at modern domestic. this is a great class for learning how to finish your garments or other projects with some techniques that make the inside finished and beautiful and doesn't require a serger. it may be the artist in me that is thrilled to slip on a well made piece of clothing that has an unexpected touch of beauty and craftsmanship inside where only i can see. this class is 10:30 - 1:30, there's still room for a couple more, hope to see you there!
