Deer & Doe Centaurée Dress

Last month at our ASG meeting my friend Judy gave me a bunch of fabric from her stash to have fun with. Included in the batch were these beautiful floral upholstery sample squares. I went through my patterns to see what I could make that had smaller pieces. The pieced bodice of the Centaurée dress was a perfect match. A sweet little sundress to get me through the …

Kids Clothes Week! Summer 2016

School starts in two more weeks so KCW-that’s kids clothes week– is timed perfectly for me this summer! I don’t sew for the kiddos that regularly so it’s always nice to focus for just a week each season. The goal is to spend an hour a day sewing for our kids. Sometimes that’s more challenging then it seems! This season I started early. I wanted to make sure …

Top 5 Hits of 2014

Centauree & Plantain -Deer & Doe Fangirl

I wasn’t originally planning on entering the Indie FanGirl Competition over at The Monthly Stitch.  I just wasn’t feeling inspired and couldn’t justify the expense of more patterns when I already own so many.  I looked at …

Centauree~Ava Swimsuit

This week’s contest for The Monthly Stitch is Franken-Indie!  This is the challenge I’ve been most excited for Indie pattern month.  I originally ordered Deer & Doe’s Robe Centauree pattern for the New to Me challenge but quickly realized it wouldn’t get here in time for me to do the dress justice.  Instead I started thinking up ways I could hack the pattern.  I had just ordered some …
