Basics Sewing: Sweatpants and White V-neck Tee

I made this basics set a few months ago at the beginning of our stay at home orders. I was working form my stash (fabric + patterns) so I thought I’d try out this men’s sweat pant and my fav basic tee pattern. I did have a few issues with the pant- mainly because it is a mens pattern. I love the side panels and inset pockets. The …

Universal Orlando Vacation Makes!

We’re just back from a whirlwind family reunion vacation at Universal Orlando!  Perfect family trip plus lots of new makes!  Off season- so hardly any waiting in lines, relatively cool weather *for Florida in September* and a roomy Air bnb home to relax in with all the family. The kids were at the prefect age too for our first visit to Universal.  Both tall enough for most rides …

Summer Swimwear for the Kids

I wanted to share a quick post (with tons of pics!) showing off all the summer swimwear I made for the kids.  The kiddos grow so fast lately I need to make new suits every season. I let them pick out the fabric prints (though I try to steer them to coordinating one’s) and then make up a bunch all at once. All the Details- Fabrics from The Fabric Fairy (click on …

Refashioned PJ’s for Ami: McCall’s M5965

Pacific Grove V Neck Dress M6658

This dress is all about the fabric! I fell in love with this Pacific Grove landscape print, a gorgeous knit from Marcy Tilton , and bought up a few panels.  After I got this in the early spring I couldn’t make up my mind on what to use it for.  I finally decided I needed a really simple silhouette to really show it off. For my silhouette I went with a simple tee shirt …

Kids Clothes Week! Back to School 2016

I’m back today sharing some of the back to school gear I made for Nigel for Kids Clothes Week.  Knowing I was going to be really busy this week  I did all my prep + sewing over the last two weeks.   Can you believe school starts here in less then 2 weeks?!?  I’ve been crazy busy getting ready.  Nigel now has a ton of raglan t-shirts and shorts  to choose from plus a new-and very awesome– backpack! Nigel asked me …

Springtime Chair Covers

We’re getting ready to list our home and I’m frantically working to fix the place up. I’m so excited for our upcoming move to Ft. Lauderdale! We’re updating the bathroom fixtures, I’m in the process of repainting my kitchen cabinets and I have every room in the house patched up and ready for paint touch-ups.  Everything has been scrubbed and thoroughly organized, which is no easy feat with two …
