Halloween this year was a bit odd – not only because my Halloween partner-in-crime Sybil is on a different continent, but because it SNOWED in New York all day and into the night. I doubt I was alone in being totally unprepared to deal with the rain-slush-snow that fell non-stop all day. That being said, [...]

I mentioned my idea to my very talented friend Nicole – who is always so good at thinking up small details that add character to costumes and this year she also decided to doodle it. It’s so cute. Pictures of me to follow. What are you going to be?
I was so happy to see this! Thank you for all the support, enthusiasm and personal stories – they’ve been so inspiring to me – I’m excited for what’s to come!
Thought I’d post a few pictures from the Atlantic Antic this past Sunday. Overall, I consider it a HUGE success. It really got me moving in a number of ways – from getting my patterns professionally made and graded, to production, to getting my business set up more professionally on the backend, to getting more [...]
I’ve been a little MIA from posting over the past week or so because I’m prepping to sell at the upcoming Atlantic Antic on October 2nd. I’m so excited because this will be the first in-person event for Silk and Cyanide since the pop-up shop – and this time we’ll have a full range of [...]

Runway, a fully-funded Kickstarter project I had donated to. For the month of September (during New York Fashion Week), [...]
I love blogs and blogging, but it seems lately that I’ve been doing a fair bit of eye-rolling, mostly geared towards the sewing and fashion blogs I follow. I think blogging, YouTube, Googling, etc has really been a wonderful benefit to the sewing world and has gotten more people involved than had been before. But [...]
This 4th of July weekend Tim and I decided to hit up the Liberty Belle Spectacular on the roof of the Empire Hotel. This was my first time on their rooftop bar and my first actual 4th of July event in the city after a botched Governor’s Island party last year. The fireworks view was [...]
