Fehr Trade: tag One of the favourite features of my PB Jam Leggings pattern is that there’s a secure, inner pocket at the upper back to keep things like your phone, keys, or gels handy while you’re working out. While I was developing the pattern, I decided to make this pocket one layer, and use the exterior of the leggings as the other side of the pocket, sealing off the bottom with topstitching. But sometimes you may not want any topstitching visible from the right side, so to do this, you only need one extra piece of fabric and a few short steps. Making the pocket invisible from the outside will only add about 5 minutes max onto your construction time, but if your fabric is thick, definitely consider cutting your pocket from a thinner lycra! Here’s the finished invisible pocket on my latest “rainbow sherbert” pair I’ve just finished!
What a weekend! After months of planning, my first sewing retreat was a complete success. 11 ladies came together in my town of Beacon, New York for a few days of sewing fun.

I brought a bunch of garments to show and tell with.

The Wonder of Knits As I’ve gone through my Wardrobe Architect journey over the last few months, I’ve realized how important comfort is to me. Sure, it seems obvious that our clothes should be comfortable. But when I really looked at what pieces of clothing I wore again and again, at least half of them turned out to be made from knits.
