Summers are ALSO for……

…….making sure most of what I wear is beach appropriate. AND for wearing cut-off shorts with everything clearly!!!! To that point, the shorts I have on here are my favorite summer shorts. I wear the dickens out of them!! I got them a couple of years ago but paid way too much at an LF…

Sunshine & Rain?

Girl, I don’t know! LOL. I’m running out of clever blog titles. But figured the bright yellow top playing in the hydrant kinda worked. This post won’t be too wordy. I made this top from in March when I first went into isolation. I had been looking for more time to sew and the 4+…

HIGHEST Key Mood

aka Mood Collaboration #3 for June 2020. Friends……..FRIENDS!!!! Ya girl did THE MOST with this June Mood project!! But in my defense, I thought it would be an easier project than it was. And once I started, I had to commit to it. I’ve never been afraid of doing too much!! When in doubt, overdress,…

For the love of……..

JUMPSUITS!!!!! (And the like! ie….rompers) I, like so many others, endure the cons of jumpsuit-wearing for my love of their comfort and one-step dressing ability. I just know that going to the bathroom will be an ordeal but I gotta pay to play. My sewing friend and inspiration Marica of @OverdriveAfter30 on IG (www.maricamitchell.com) has…

Medium Key Mood

You ever want to be comfy cozy but still dressed? Like be able to move and not fuss with what you’re wearing but still make a statement? That’s medium-key to me. Low-key feel with high-key appeal meeting in the middle! (OH SHOOT! I just came up with that. I’m copyrighting that! Don’t steal that!) Joy,…

Olivia Palermo Inspo Jacket

Olivia Palermo will forever be a style inspiration for me!!! What I wouldn’t give to do a Supermarket Sweep through her closet for 15mins. Do y’all remember that show?!?! Not sure what fascinated me so about dashing and grabbing through a supermarket but I would watch it all the time as a kid! While perusing…

Twofer Tuesday!

Well, this post should be nice and quick and easy: I LOVE MIMI G PATTERNS!!! Bye! I mean really. These patterns were easy to follow and practically fool proof. I made almost no adjustments and when I say these pants fit like a dream! Deep REM smiling in your sleep dream! Making pants has scared…

Issa Mooood!!!

My first Mood Fabrics collaboration that is! (If dad jokes came in blog post titles, guess who would win?) GUYS…………..the self-imposed PRESSURE!!!! With this month being the first month as a Mood Sewing Network blogger, I wanted the inaugural project to be mind-blowing! I had to show OUT! It had to be good, I said….

Winner, Winner……Lobster Dinner!!!

As long as you’re not working against a shellfish allergy, lobster sounds like more of a winner dinner to me, no?!? Back in mid-February, I won an IG giveaway!! I’ve never won anything before in my life!! But I won a pattern from Friday Pattern Company and a gift certificate from I See Fabric. The…

Stalker Jacket + Mood Fabrics Discount Code!!

Being in quarantine, I really miss getting inspiration from the window shopping and people-watching I do going to and from work. Back in early January, I saw the FLYEST jacket EVVVVVER while going down to grab my lunch at work. “GASP,” I exclaimed in my head! I was walking, a safe distance, behind her trying…

Lots of cool!

In my new culottes! How long can these corny titles last? 🤷🏾‍♀️ But I’m obviously going to keep at it until I can’t no more! To the culottes!!!!!! I had these Winslow Culottes by Helen’s Closet on my mile long To Make list for a while but when I saw Jolene’s version, I had to…

Not So Mellow Yellow

This dress was to be part of my Cartagena wardrobe for a trip back in May. Figured I could whip it up fast enough. No! Not quite. It’s the popular Vogue 9357 pattern that made the rounds a couple of months ago. I chose View C in size 14 and left off the buttons. I…
