Here’s a quick mini-camp, a weekend retreat if you will, for that transitional season between flip flops and long johns. I will walk you through the steps to construct a capelette and leggings.
This sew camp is also intended for sewers familiar with working their sewing machines, but I will be going over tips and techniques to use if you’re without a serger. Also like the Sewing Mama eCourse, the patterns will be made available to you upon payment as downloadable pdf’s with instructions provided through your access to a private blog with loads of visuals and videos.
The projects include:
- Lined hooded capelette: This versatile, lined hooded capelette (I like to whip mine up in wool lined in raw silk) to wear during forest foraging adventures. The cape lands just around the bust lined but can easily be extended to any length you wish. The hood bit is optional and fastens with a button at the neck.
- Two toned leggings: These two tone leggings will for sure act as your primary layering device for this and upcoming cooler seasons. I offer the option to make the bottom bit a different color for that Beyond Thunderdome effect. These puppies will serve you up nicely in either a knit cotton for balmy Indian Summer or try a wool knit blend for when we are forced to officially declare the season as Autumn and beyond.
Pattern pieces are sized small, medium and large which will accommodate the following measurements:
bust: 32 to 40 inches
waist: 24 to 34 inches
hips: 34 to 42 inches

Testimonials From Past Sew Mamas
I really enjoyed camp. I loved all of the projects… I honestly don’t know what was my favorite… maybe the knit shirt or smock but I loved the bloomers too. Thanks for all the helpful videos, I learned so much! Thanks and sign me up for fall!
This sew camp was absolutely amazing. To be encouraged, taught and empowered to create cute and practical clothes was great. Kathy is an amazing, knowledgeable, and fun teacher. Can’t wait for the next one! Thank you Kathy.
It was also wonderful to work from my home when my children were tucked in their beds at night. The patterns were easy to follow and the clothes turned out so cute! All outfits I love to wear and I am looking forward to making more in other colors. I am more visual and pictures and videos work much better for me than reading a confusing pattern. Fantastic, fun and entertaining!! Kathy made me laugh and not take sewing so seriously, love the wabi-sabi concept!! I need more of that in my life!!
I loved the projects! It felt so special to make something for me, to be able to make that a priority because of the class. I learned so much about using my machine and how to add special details to make my outfits unique. Thank you so much!
Thanks so much for the class! It was very inspiring, and I’m almost done with this week’s project… a little shirt for the three year old. Next week’s challenge is three year old jeans! And then, of course, back to mama and one of the variations above… So thank you for the great projects and the overall inspiration to just sew!
Kathy, I learned so much in the sew camp. Not just sewing but the idea of pacing a project and being ok if it’s not perfect. Also I loved learning new techniques with your help and on my own from your jumping off points. I have a new revitalized passion for sewing! Thank you!
Oh Kathy you are the blessing. Thank you so much, I hadn’t sewn in so long, you gave me something once again to get excited about too. Thank you as well for your further suggestions for the projects, will do!
