Make Nine 2019

I love the Make 9 challenge hosted by Rochelle of Home Row Fiber Co! I watched from the sidelines last year but this year I’m excited to participate. I started making my list and it has already helped me start to narrow my focus. I get so excited about sewing, I tend to hop from project to project flying by the seat of my pants. Bringing more mindfulness to my sewing is something I will be cultivating in 2019. The other bonus is that I LOVE supporting other indie sewing pattern companies and I want to do more of it! So I compiled my nine and I cant wait to get sewing! In no particular order: The Evie Bias Skirt...

New Pattern: Meet the Hughes Dress!

The Hughes Dress is finally here! The Hughes is a surprisingly versatile style that you’ll find yourself wearing constantly. This dress was designed with equal emphasis on wearability and style. The pattern includes options to cut it as a top, above-the-knee length dress, or a midi dress. One of my favorite details about the dress is the lacing on the back.

What I Made This Week: Leggings, Old Fashioneds, Bangs. It's Fall Y'all!

This is the first in a new blog series I am calling “What I Made This Week”. I love making things and want to be mindful about setting aside time each week to make and do things just because. I also want to try new types of crafting and making beyond just sewing…but most of my weekly makes will probably be sewing related ;) JALIE CLARA LEGGINGS # 3887 This week I made my first ever Jalie Pattern. I’ve been interested in trying them out for a while now, but when I saw @Lauren.Leigh ‘s Clara Leggings I stopped what I was doing and ordered the pattern. I made a size “T” with the only adjustment being shortening them a...

DIY Cover-Up/Cute Thing

I was recently shopping at a prominent RTW store that I love but that some times charges WAY too much for things you could definitely sew yourself, we'll call it Shmanthropologie. Anyway, I knew instantly that this stunning layer was necessity for my summertime/travel wardrobe and would pair perfectly with the #vernazzatwopiece, but it cost like $140!  It is super easy to make and is also a zero-waste project. I have been trying to bring more mindfulness to how much waste that I create and this is a certified super easy-guilt free-satisfying-wonderful project! Here is what you need: 1 1/3 yards of a drapey fabric that is at least 54" wide. You're going to want to choose something that looks...
