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 …

Vacation Sewing- Odgen Floral Cami and Red + White Stripe Holly Pants

I’m just back from the most relaxing mini vacation with my family in Hobe Sound, Florida. Beautiful beach days with high winds led to some gorgeous waves and cool breezy weather. Perfect beach vacation! Today I’m focusing on the Red and White Stripe Holly Pants and Odgen Cami. I’ll share more on the other makes when I get a few more pics taken to show detail. My sis …

A Girl + Her Doggo- Aquarelle Floral Simplicity 8567 Girls Dress + Matching Dog Vest 2393

This was my favorite holiday gift project- matchy matchy outfits for my little girl and our new dog Suki! Ami is very picky when it comes to me sewing her clothes so it took me ages to settle on the perfect pattern. Simplicity 8567 has the best statement sleeves and modern silhouette. Ami actually picked out the fabric when I was shopping for my Christmas fabrics this year …

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 …

Indigo Sailor Pant + Stripe Waffle Knit Tee Vogue 9282

Happy Thanksgiving! I’m over at my sister’s new home in Sarasota celebrating with my family and looking good in my new indigo Sailor Pants!  The best part of the Holiday this year- no cooking for me! To make it easier this year since we’re all driving in from out of town (and my sis doesn’t love cooking for a crowd) we’ve ordered the whole meal from Whole Foods.  …
