I'm Nadine. Thanks for stopping by. The floors are creaky, the kids are loud, but the door's always open and the coffee's always on.

Make yourself at home.

Project Runway, Here I Come!

I'm about 80% done sewing "Anna," my second dress of the year.

No, I haven't posted any photos of the first dress. Mostly because I'm lazy/vain. (I'm too lazy to put on makeup and style it properly, but too vain to show it off otherwise.) I'll get around to it soon. Promise.

This second dress is a little trickier than the first dress. Because of double pleats. And an invisible zipper. And plenty of French seams. And, again, vanity. I'm not sure if the design is flattering, even though the general Internet consensus is that it is. When I finally finish the thing — it needs the zipper, a back seam and hemming — I'll know for sure. Jumping ahead to unflattering conclusions isn't totally fair.


The Oscars are on Sunday.

I hope someone wears this:

Most cuddle-worthy red-carpet outfit ever?

More fashion predictions to come….
