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…

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…

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…

2019 Scarlett O’Hara!

**shrugs emoji** That’s a classic refashion from a curtain reference, no? I’m no cash-strapped Scarlett O’Hara going to woo Rhett Butler to save my family’s tax heavy plantation. I just wanted to make something cute for my trip to Cartagena. And I found this super cute sheer dotted curtain at one of my favorite stores,…

I want to be seen…..GREEN!!!

Whoa!!) one of my favorite sewing bloggers, Tabitha Sewer, posted a gorgeous green sequins tiered skirt she’d just made. GASP, I exclaimed!!! I’m going to make that! I…

The Adrienne Blouse 😍

My sisters (I have 2 younger sisters) and I planned a weekend away for our middle sister’s birthday this past weekend. I found the cutest cabin in the Catskills and it was perfect for shooting comfy chic makes. AHA! I could make The Adrienne Blouse, I thought. On a recent trip to the Fashion District,…

I Think I Like Herringbone…

How am I only NOW just noticing that both of these projects are herringbone?!?! HELLO McFly! This dress has been high on my Wanting to Make list since I started back sewing. Very high actually and I really wish I’d made this earlier! I LOVE HER! I love everything about what attracted me to this…

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…
