Wow, since the year started, August was the first month I was so incredibly busy, I completely forgot to write my recap till today… September 1st. But I remember just on the nick of time. I love writing those recaps,they are mostly for myself, unlike the rest of my blog with which I’m happy and […]

Dream Vacation | Around the World in 5 Disney Parks

Share

I was just sitting on my sewing room, idly looking through my blog reader feed this afternoon, and then this idea came to my head: a vacation where I got to visit all Disney Parks in the world. Yes, it would be kind of sad to miss visiting the countries where all the Disney Parks […]

Simplicity 1419 – The Ombre Dress

Share

This dress has actually been ready for about two weeks now… It just took me some time to get to photograph it and blog about it! A lot of you probably saw it on Instagram or Facebook, because I asked for your help in determining which color I should go with for the collar. There […]

McCalls Fall 2014 Collection – Wishlist

Share

New patterns! McCalls just sent out the very anticipated email with all of their new pattern offerings for fall! And after seeing all the fall offerings from Vogue, Butterick, and now McCalls, I have to say it… even though I’m a big fan of winter and cold, the colder weather patterns just don’t do it […]

Sewing With Knits – The Colette Mabel

Share

Another milestone for my sewing career: knits! This is not my first try at this type of fabric, but it was the first I consider successful. I took a class earlier this summer about how to sew knits, and it was spectacular at answering all of the questions I didn’t know I should have been […]

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 […]
