Navy + White Stripe Hooded Swim Dress

We finally got back to the beach last weekend! I think that’s what I missed most during the shutdown. Just in time too- since they’re shutting down again for the 4th of July as our covid numbers are ever increasing here in Florida. The beach and ocean were full of seaweed but it was still lovely to be back out in nature and get some swimming in. The …

Mini Cottesloe + Rashguard Set- Sewing for Kids

Summer is still going strong here in Florida even with the kids back in school. I sew the kids at least one new swim set every year-they grow like weeds! The Mini Cottesloe just launched over at Megan Nielsen Patterns…perfect timing to share some summer makes. I was a tester for the version I’m showing you today. Ami is really looking forward to another- especially since she’s actually …

All the Details- Fabrics from The Fabric Fairy (click on …

The kids have been out of school for almost a …

Sophie Swimsuit and Cropped Rashguard

When Heather at Closet Case Files was on the lookout for pattern testers I jumped at the chance to participate.  I just love her patterns!  I was really thrilled when I saw it was for a swimsuit.  Here in Florida I’m at the pool or beach with the kiddos ALL THE TIME!  And as luck would have it I already had the materials on hand-that’s what I call kismet! My …

Mix & Match Swim Clothes for Ami

We’re getting ready for a little mini vacay up to Venice Beach FL this Friday so I’ve been sewing up beach gear like a crazy person for the past few weeks!  First up are Ami’s new & much needed swim outfits- she just had a 2″ growth spurt!  This was my first try sewing swimwear of any kind and I’m really happy with how they turned out.  So adorable …
