Making Of Lake Photos

Share

The past two new dresses I finished (Polka Dot b6049 and Floral Anna #3) I took to the Great Salt Lake for pictures. The first one, the Anna dress, I had Dana with me to take my pictures. The second round, with the polka dot dress, I went with a different friend, Shalese, but since she […]

Happy New Dress Day – Butterick 6049

Share

If you follow me on Instagram, you’ve been seeing the making of this dress for this past week. It wasn’t a particular time consuming project, I finished it with just a hour or two of work on it per day. And boy, do I love it. I made the View C of the Butterick 6049 dress. Really, click […]

The Anna Dress Goes to the Salt Lake

Share

Yes, I made another Anna dress! This is my 4th (three for me, one gift), and at this point I’ve made so many I won’t even link you to it, I’ll just send you to my Handmade Wardrobe page where you can see them all. This pattern is so fantastic, though, I might have added a […]

I did a refashion once. I hated it.

Share

Before I start… I committed an awful refashion sin while trying to make this gigantic shirt fit me. I forgot to take a before picture. When sewing, you never take a before picture because the before picture is just a rectangular piece of fabric folded. But on refashions… You are making changes to something that […]

Favorite Pattern: The Belcarra

Share

I’m in love with the Belcarra blouse! You might remember when I made my first one about a month ago, and then you didn’t hear about the second one because it was a gift (only have one picture and it’s not really good, so let’s keep the standards high here and not share it!), and here […]

Easy DIY Tote Bag Tutorial

Share

Before this blog was a sewing blog, I was already sewing a ton, but mostly I was sewing tote bags and other little things. So two years ago, when my friend Tan asked for guest posts for her blog Squirelly Minds while she was out on vacation, I jumped at the chance of writing this […]

On the Cutting Table #2

Share

Want a sneak peek on what I’m planning on sewing next? I love doing those kind of posts because it helps me thinking what I have on my pile, and to prioritize the few projects I want to do next. I rarely ever actually go through all of them in this order, but I still get most of […]

Sewing Fail | McCalls 6930

Share

Just to keep this blog true, I’m here today to share a #Fail project. They happen. To everyone, even the super awesome experienced people out there who sew a ton, it happens to all of us, and it happened to me as well. Sigh. Not everything turns out perfect, I guess. See below: Doesn’t look […]

Blogroll | My Favorite Sewing Blogs

Share

Just for the record, this is officially becoming a sewing blog. Sewing is quickly replacing all of my other hobbies, so it’s not surprising that this blog is reflecting that as well. I still love to photograph, read, go on hikes, and travel, so this blog won’t always be 100% about sewing. It will always […]
