Make Nine 2018

This is my first year joining the Make Nine challenge, started by Rochelle of Lucky Lucille back in 2016. I actually just learned of it this year and thought what a great idea!  I usually create a To Sew list every season which I never complete and always modify, but it helps me. Confession: I’m…

A look back at 2017

I don’t always write a end of the year recap post, but I’ve made several pieces that I just love in 2017. Let me share them with you! I started the year off with a BANG! I sewed 10 items in just two months for my Pattern Review’s Sudoku Contest entry. The rules were to create…

What I did this weekend…

I can’t be the only one who loves “free” weekends. You know, those weekends free of “adulting”… no kids events, no boring errands, no appointment, no obligations.

If you missed it, check it out here! Simplicity released a much more impressive Early Spring collection (in my opinion), but I…

So far McCalls and Vogue have released their early spring patterns. (So has Simplicity, but their new website is a nightmare and I can’t find them to share with you). I don’t typically do pattern release review posts but I was sitting here browsing the new collections and realized I only had a few maybes…

Holiday Party DIY Looks

I wouldn’t call myself a girly girl but I do love to get all dressed up! I’m pretty sure I’ve always been this way. In high school I attended every “formal” dance the school had (I can remember 6). I didn’t really dance that much and I didn’t have a boyfriend for most of high school so…

Fall 2015 “To-Sew” List

I typically sew for the current season right up until the end of that season. See the halter wrap dress I sewed up just 2 weeks ago for the Fabricista Fashion Challenge. Sadly that means when the temps finally drop or raise I have nothing to wear. And by nothing I mean nothing handmade and by…
