Denim Jumpsuit: Fabricista Guest Post

I love a jumpsuit! Second to dresses, I think jumpsuits are my favorite item to sew. One piece outfits just make life easier. Plus jumpsuits are great for transitional months as you can layer them with a jacket or over a long sleeve shirt. And since I’m moving to fall sewing this jumpsuit was a…

Blueberry Criss Cross Jumpsuit – Vogue 9259

February Projects / My Travel Wardrobe Contest Submission

Although I have certainly had some #FAILS I’m proud of what I have been able to accomplish in just about a year of sewing. I’ve made dresses, skirts, tops, pants, followed patterns, self drafted, remade RTW items, installed zippers, learned to serge, done a blind hem and more. Still I want to continue to learn…
