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 …

Parisian Multi-coloured Leopard Memphis Dress

Check out this fabulous dress I made for my birthday last week! It’s the Memphis Dress from the Sewing Workshop made up in the most gorgeous multi-coloured leopard print by Penelope. When my mom and dad went to Paris for their 50th Wedding Anniversary back in November they brought me back such lovely fabrics to work with! I’m one lucky girl! This fabric is the coolest multi-coloured leopard …

Two for The Road Silver Blue Metallic Jacket

When the Holidays role around I always try to think up something interesting and beautiful I can make for my mom. This year I went with a tried and true pattern. This is my second version of the Two for the Road jacket from Saf-T-Pockets that I’ve made for my mother. Unfortunately I never took photos of her first one (on the to do list!) but she got …

Star Wars Fennel Fanny Pack

This Star Wars Fennel fanny pack was by far my favorite gift I made this Christmas. Unfortunately the shipping was a huge hassle so my brother hasn’t actually gotten this gift yet. Here it is AJ! You’ll get it next time I see you! Another reason to visit us! Last time my brother was here visiting he was sporting the exact same fanny pack I have and I …

Holiday Home Sewing

We’ve been in our new home almost two years now and I’ve been slowly adding some handmade home décor. I don’t love sewing that isn’t fashion related so I’m trying to stick to one or two new makes each holiday that I really love. Last Christmas I made new Christmas Stockings and a basic Tree Skirt. This year I added an Advent Countdown Calender, all in my holiday …

Halloween Sewing 2019- The Addams Family

I’m sew excited to share these Halloween makes! I lucked out this year- As soon as Ami saw the previews of the new Addams Family animated movie she was all in for us dressing up as the family. Now my son at 11 took a bit more convincing, but in the end he hopped on board. I adore Halloween. Not the scary stuff so much but the dressing …

Fall 2019 Wardrobe Planning

It’s October and it’s finally cooling down a tiny bit here in Florida. That means it’s time to start planning my fall wardrobe sewing and put away my most summery pieces. Fall (and Winter) in Florida rarely drops below the 50’s so dressing for fall can be a bit tricky. I can’t do layers or heavy fall looks, I don’t even own a real coat. Cold days are …
