Top 5 Hits + Misses and Reflections 2020

It’s been a strange year and while I’ve sewn quite a bit, my makes felt a bit disjointed this year. I started out strong with some lovely makes in the winter but focused more on pattern drafting and muslins (many wearable) for the remainder of the year. The last few months I’ve had a really full work schedule so I’m really looking forward to some time in my …

MMM Days 1-11

I’m really enjoying another year of Me Made May! It’s my 7th year participating! I’m especially enjoying it this year because it’s pushing me to get “dressed” each day while Staying Home. We’re still closed here in Broward County so I’m not leaving the house much at all other than to walk the dog or go to the grocery store. Counting down the days until summer and an …

The year has almost slipped by, I’m getting this post in right before we ring in the New Year! Spending the last few minutes before we head over to my mom’s to celebrate!

Fiona Bodice + Utu Skirt

What do you do when all you have is a square of beautifully embroidered linen? Piece it into a gorgeous little crop top! I was gifted with a selection of upholstery samples at our last ASG annual meeting and have been holding on/ hoarding them until I could find the perfect use. The Fiona dress seemed like a great match as the bodice is made of quite a …

2018, Year in Review

This past year has been so busy! So many big changes. New job, new home, new school for the kids and a new doggo! My blogging time has been much more limited as a result, but I still made well over 30 pieces (maybe 20 or so blogged). The last few months I’ve intentionally tried to slow down my blogging/social media and focus on being a bit more …
