Organic Denim Jeans + Embroidery

I was never that into wearing jeans until I learned how to sew my own perfectly fitted pair.  These jeans are just my style with the embroidered pockets and colorful topstitching.   I love the fit and silhouette.  I’m not a skinny jeans girl.  I don’t think that silhouette makes me look as proportional as a nice straight leg that skims the hip.  This organic denim is so comfortable too, with just …

Indigo Dyed Jeans- Finally Completed!

I’ve been working on these jeans for about a month, so I’m really excited to have them finally completed, especially before the warm weather hits Florida!  I was really getting concerned that I wouldn’t have a chance to wear them this season.  Plus they’re just in time for February’s Smarty Pants Challenge over at The Monthly Stitch, and my first time contributing!  Between the indigo dyeing (which I did …

February Sewing Plans!

I’ve been taking a step back this week and focusing again on my big sewing projects and wardrobe planning.  Last week’s Kids Clothes Week Challenge was a lot of fun, but it wore me out!  I’m just not used to sewing so much at once, definitely needed a breather.  I can’t believe I sewed all this in one week!

Our parents live only a few minutes from each other and get along fabulously too!  It’s so nice, especially with kids, to have so much family here.  Both …

Organizing and Planning my Wardrobe

Today was a cleaning/organizing day (+ a ton of laundry and toy cleanup) that I needed to catch up on since I’ve been relaxing for vacation!   I weeded through my closet, set aside a bag for donations, a bag for mending, and a bag for pieces that have nice fabric that I can reuse for the kids. This year I want to focus on sewing pieces that …
