Green with LOVE!

I made this ensemble for my good friend’s wedding 2 years ago. The beginnings of it are a little fuzzy to be honest with you. (The beginnings of the outfit that is, not the wedding! HA) **thinking face emoji** I know for sure that I had no idea what I would make. This kind of…

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!

I really do amuse myself quite a bit! You’d think I was an only child. (I’m actually the eldest of 3 girls.) I was so graciously gifted this Muse pattern by P&M Patterns this summer. This is one of the clearest and most detailed patterns I’ve ever used! At every step, there was a clear…

Alexa, Play Kanye’s Workout Plan

That’s the first song that came to mind but I’m not following anything of Kanye’s, just so we’re clear. I have been super consistent with my current workout. (proud smile) I got a Peloton bike at the start of isolation and I’ve been on it more days than not each week. I kind of have…

Sagebrush Top Love

I had to run after and hop on this bandwagon!!! And I’m still stalking it. The Sagebrush Top by Friday Pattern Co is THAT good!! It reminds me of little tops I would wear as a kid but appropriate for the grown-up that I am, of course. I chose to make it in this cotton…

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…

Summers are for……..

……wearing white and wearing seersucker. Wearing white seersucker is even better yes? I’ve had the pattern for this dress for a WHILE! I feel like I say that quite a bit but kudos to me for working thru my stash, no? I originally bought it because of Martha of Buried Diamond. I LOVE her bright…

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,…

My Catch Up Game

I’m normally good for a couple of things: (1) starting multiple projects and finishing just a few, and (2) HOARDING sewing patterns and fabric. When I really started sewing more seriously and more frequently, I made a promise to myself that I would NOT start multiple projects thereby overwhelming myself to ergo not completing a…
