About Us

We can’t be the only ones to have noticed how terrible everything is nowadays, right? Seriously, the quality of goods has declined dramatically. My sister and I were shopping for some new t-shirts, which should be pretty easy to find, and could not find any decent quality shirts. Everything is made from super-thin, cheap fabric. We’re reasonably fit. Did we look good? No. We looked like potatoes.

Also, we are not convinced that it is necessary nor fashionable to wear two shirts at once just because all of the shirts are sheer or semi-sheer. Having to pay twice as much to get a terrible quality outfit? Not cool. Nope. Do not like.

We’re calling them t-shits now.

We were so distressed that we decided to learn how to sew. We’re going to make projects out beginner’s sewing book ( “Sew Everything Workshop” by Diana Rupp), and someday they will stop looking like clothes blind people made, and start looking well-made and chic. We’re also going to complain about things. Yay!

  1. Oh, I did laugh…t-shits and clothes made by blind people!! But seriously, you are quite right about clothing quality. Unless you are in the position to pay $600 for a pair of shorts and $200 for a t-shirt (not me!) it is really hard to find good quality affordable clothing.
    Good luck on your sewing adventure! I will be following….

    P.S. I came to your blog via your PJ pants review on Pattern Review.

  2. I found your blog searching for reviews on Simplicity 1971 (the apron). I am learning to sew and it’s my first project. 🙂 I have noticed the quality of clothing decreasing too. I just bought a long sleeved knit shirt from American Apparel and the hem unraveled on the first washing! I could fix it now that I have a sewing machine, but it is so short! That is the other beef I have with ready-to-wear: poor fit. I do not need to expose 3″ of my stomach! I hope to follow along with you guys and get some tips and some laughs. 🙂

  3. I found your blog searching for h Vogue 8765. Although it is OOP I love what you have done and would like to make it!.

    I, too, have been making numerous muslins for Vogue 2948 used in Sandra Betzina’s Pants Fitting Techniques Class on Craftsy. I haven’t had much luck getting the pants to fit even with all her instructions. I don’t have a fitting partner either. So, I join you in your frustration.

    I am going to a group class. $40. There is a very advanced publisthed seamstress who will help you fit gmuslins. I want to save up several muslins of different fabrics before I go. I intend that this dress be one of them!

    I would like to follow your blog. It seems I can’t find a follow button. Can you let me know where it is?
    Thanks,
    Kathy

  4. I love that you are so thoroughly testing the Sew Everything Workshop book! Please let me know when you make the short pants (I think Rupp calls them knickers). I’m wondering if they’re worth making–the fit doesn’t look like something I would ever wear, but maybe I could be persuaded out of my comfort zone. 🙂
