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. It allows you to cinch the waist in a bit to get the perfect fit without making you feel restricted. Bianca (above) is wearing the Hughes Dress cut to the above-the-knee length in an XXL. She is 5’6” tall. The fabric is a light chambray with 3% spandex. Her version has pearl snaps up the front. Tashjane (below) is...

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...

Pattern Hack: Lucida + Vernazza One Piece

One of the most common questions I get about the Vernazza Two Piece is "Do you think I can hack it into a one piece?". The answer is YES! There are several ways you could go about it. I stumbled upon this idea when I was hacking the Lucida Dress Pattern into a top. It is super easy to add the top of the Lucida to the bottoms of the Vernazza! Here is what you'll need: Lucida Dress Pattern Vernazza Two Piece Pattern 1 1/4 -1 1/2 yards of swimsuit fabric Swim elastic  Sewing: 1. Cut out the front, back, and tie pieces for the Lucida Dress. You will need to lengthen the bodice. I added 6" and that was...

Pattern Hack: Vernazza Panties

The bottoms of the Vernazza Two Piece pattern can easily be modified to make a cute and comfortable pair of panties ;)  This is a great opportunity to use up those scraps of knit fabric you probably have lying around and it shouldn’t take more than an hour (hour and a half, max) to throw together a super cute pair of undies!  Here is what you need:    • The Vernazza Two Piece pattern • 1/2 yard of a stretch knit fabric • A stretch or ballpoint machine needle • A scrap of 100% cotton fabric for the crotch gusset (if the main fabric you are using is not cotton)  • About 2-3 yards picot edge underwear elastic.   •...
