Ogden Cami Maxi Hack

I’ve loved trolling through the smaller fabric shops in Midtown since I was a kid going with my mom. Literally only big enough that you can squeeze sideways thru and smelling of bolts and bolts and bolts of material. Nothing beats the smell of fresh cut fabric in the morning!

True Bias Nikko Dress Remix

No lie, I have 5 True Bias patterns in my stash waiting to get made up. When Kelli reached out about participating in their fall photo collaboration, I had to double check what I had and decide what I wanted to make for the collaboration. I kept looping back to the Nikko Dress, which I,…

ah-MUSE-ing myelf!

Striped Knit Dress

In my mind, this was going to be a more casual sweater dress a la Mimi G. Hers is from Forever 21 but she provided details on how to DIY it using her Annie sweater pattern. I went to Mood Fabrics looking for a similar style sweater knit but had no such luck. The closest…
