his post was sponsored by Stylish Fabric. As always, all thoughts, opinions and text are my own. Leggings have become quite popular over the past few years. So much so that they have become a closet staple for lots of women. They are very comfortable and can be quite stylish, but they have one major flaw. They don’t usually have pockets. Without a pocket, where do you put your phone?! Sure you can get...
As soon as the new year rolls around I anxiously await the arrival of spring! Lighter layers, warmer days, green buds emerging from the ground. These things make my heart soar! In honor of spring’s soon arrival, I decided to make a lighter-weight statement dress and experiment with a style I’ve been intrigued by for a while…prairie chic. The Pattern: Trend...
I'm loving the animal print trend right now and when I saw this leopard rayon knit from Stylish Fabric I couldn't wait to make something with it. This fabric has a soft drape to it and it's not see through! They also have many different colors and prints (rayon jersey). I use this a lot on my knit projects. I had a lot of...
This fabric wasn’t meant to be leggings when I picked it out. I had a really fun maxi dress in mind, maybe something with a cute wrap top and some fluttery sleeves. The tie dye print is so large and fun, I thought a maxi dress was really going to be the best way to showcase it! But when...
With NYE right around the corner, I'm sure you're thinking of something that resembles a disco ball to wear. I always enjoy making my New Year's look even if it is for some low key occasion at home with the babes. I, of course, look for the most sparkly of fabrics like sequins! Sequin fabric can be a bit intimidating and tricky...
Hello, friends! I’m back with another fantastic pattern and fabric mash-up. This is a pretty loaded post involving three awesome companies, and I’m so excited to tell you about them all! I was lucky enough to be asked by Megan Nielsen to review her new pattern collection and of course I instantly said yes. Tammy of D & H Fabric...
I love a cute skirt come fall. Especially in a rich warm color and fabric like corduroy. It's a great piece to jazz up some tights and boots and goes great with a sweater or jacket. Lately I've been loving the corduroy trend. It's a nice material to sew with and makes great pants, jackets, and skirts. So in this...
This was one of the looks I designed for New York Fashion Week earlier this month but unfortunately didn't have the time to finish it up (I found out I was going about 1 week before). Now I'm regretting not making this one first considering how well it turned out. Really it's a very simple project but the fabric...
If you follow me on Instagram, you’ve probably noticed that I’ve been all about the Nikko Dress recently. I originally fell in love with this dress when it was released, but wasn’t yet quite comfortable enough with knits that I felt ready to jump into this project. As I’ve mentioned so many times before, becoming familiar with knits was...
I have to admit that I’m loving the recent trend to more feminine dresses with ruffles and flounces. I jumped at the opportunity to sew the McCall’s dress pattern M7801 for that very reason. I opted to do a modified version of View B, choosing the sleeves from View C instead.  Selecting the fabric for a project is crucial! I turned...
