  • Julie’s Ilford Jacket

    Hello Harts followers! Today I am back on the blog to talk to you about the new Ilford jacket by Friday Patterns Co. Ilford is an unlined boxy jacket, that can be made to look like virtually anything! It has two length options, and two sets of sleeves, one boxy and straight, the other tapered and cuffed like a shirt sleeve. It is amazing how a fairly simple design can lead to such a variety of garments depending on the vibe you are going for and the fabric you choose. Pick the short shirt-y version and a cozy flannel to get your perfect lumberjack outer layer; choose a floaty rayon…

The Nénuphar is a great lightweight jacket pattern that is perfect for layering!  Can we all take a minute to appreciate how perfect Jess’ pockets turned out?! The little details on this pattern really make it special.  We’ve really enjoyed following Jess through her maternity sewing process.

  • Julie’s Francine Dress

    I have long been an admirer of Merchant and Mills, from the fabrics they carry, to their gorgeous selection of tools, but I had never tried any of their garment patterns. So, to say that I was excited to finally test one when Harts offered me to blog about their new selection, is a huge understatement! Shipping from the UK can be pretty costly, so if you like printed patterns, having a local retailer carry some british patterns is a huge deal. I decided on the Francine top and dress pattern. It is a workwear inspired pattern that borrows its collar to the fishermen jumpers. This design is very popular…

    Jess has been on our blogging team for a couple of years now, and all the ladies at Harts just adore her!

Deer and Doe even has a maternity version available as a pdf!  Here’s what Jess has to say about her lovely new make: “It’s a simple little dress that has helped me realize how much I depend on my #handmadewardrobe. Sewing for pregnancy has been challenging (pregnancy has…

  • New Merch Monday

    New laminated cotton! From France! Ooh lala! These laminates are more of a coated fabric than and actual “laminate.”  Each thread is coated as opposed to just a laminate on top of a traditional quilting cotton. They are truly one of a kind and super high quality. Perfect for tote bags, table cloths, or even rain coats! We just received some great new prints for Alexander Henry! These cottons are just too cool for words. The skull mermaids are perfect for our Santa Cruz vibe!
