So far we've had a fun start to our Summer with lots of trips to the beach, swim meets, track meets, (mom of 3 boys here) and endless fun in the sun. I haven't had as much time to sew as I'd like but wanted to make a few garments to add to my wardrobe. I've always been...
Stylish Fabric + Simplicity S8839 JUNE 19, 2019 If there is a chance to look and feel like a feminine pirate…I’m all in! I absolutely couldn’t resist this Simplicity pattern when I came across it at Joann’s. I was inspired by the fabric choice on the picture and went with a gauzy cotton, something breathable that wouldn’t weigh down those amazing...

I love sewing and wearing basics with a twist. For example, a t-shirt that has an extra detail like this Coats & Clark Fashion zipper sewn on the shoulder seam. You can wear it with the zipper open or closed.  Either way it adds a bit of edge to your average t-shirt and simple to do. You...
Summer is almost here and if you live in the South like me then it already feels like it. To tolerate the heat I prefer wearing breezy looks with light materials like this Gauze fabric from StylishFabric.com. The Woven Jacquard Elastic from Dritzadds a nice detail to an off-the-shoulder neckline and bonus points for being comfortable. This boho top is simple to...
Camouflage prints are not just for combat.  This fabric print is heavy in current street style and I love it!!!  The print we know as camo has been around for decades and goes in and out of fashion.  But with notable fashion houses, like Valentino and Tom Ford, bringing the print into recent collections with either changes from the traditional color...
You all know I was first an artist before I became a sewist right? Until last year when I started sewing all my clothes, I made more paintings than clothes for myself (but pleeennnty for my kids). When I started sewing more, I wanted it to fill the same creative need as painting. I’ve done that in different ways in the...
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...
