Since it's snowing in Nashville, I will be sewing zippers to @cordurabrand pack cloth all day ❄️. #sewing #isew #isewbags

I love all the thread displayed in the window of this alterations shop in San Francisco. #sewing

One of the best fabric stores in the U.S. still going strong in San Francisco. @britexfabrics

I love this fabric. It's a heavy weight (around 14oz) olive selvedge denim I bought from @imogeneandwillie several years ago at one of their "yardsales." I'm making a pair of trousers with it, but only utilizing the selvedge for parts of my welt pockets and fly. The leg seams, which are typically cut perfectly straight when using selvedge denim, will be cut more like traditional trousers. .

Sewing "on the fly" for a new pair of chinos. 😉 .

I finally finished my first jacket! It only took about 16 months, including the pattern drafting. This is an unstructured, unlined, cotton, two button jacket with surgeon's cuffs. It's not perfect, but it's a start!

Sewing on Christmas Eve! 🎄 I always make several muslin "practice" garments with every new pattern I draft. That way I can work on any fit issues, and make sure all the pattern pieces fit together as they should. This is a new trouser pattern I've been working on. I pin problem areas, transfer the adjustments to the paper pattern, and try again.

Literally splitting open the seat of my pants. Needed some extra ease, and needed to change the dart placement on my new trouser pattern.

How cool is this little @singersewingcompany machine!?!? My mom just sent this to me. It was the machine that she and her sister learned to sew on. Thanks @simplymopesci!

Makin' pants y'all! I'm re-drafting my trouser pattern this fall with a slightly increased rise and fuller leg because I'm and old man, and this style of pant fits and looks better on me.

Jacket details. Surgeon's cuffs with functional buttons, just in case I have to roll up my sleeves and get dirty and don't have time to take my jacket off. 😄 .
