I've always wanted to make a Christmas skirt and I'm not talking about the one around the bottom of the tree, although very similar in design. So when my mom gave me boxes of my late Grandma's sewing patterns I found this Simplicity 2654 circle skirt and couldn't wait to sew it. I loved that she had it cut...
I wanted to kick off the New Year (Happy New Year all) with something futuristic and FUN for 2020. I've been eyeing the recent trend of faux leather leggings lately so I went ahead and bought some. After trying on a couple of brands I felt all of them were too restrictive and uncomfortable to actually wear. I assumed they must...
Are you really a sewist if you aren’t frantically sewing up new me-made garments the week before your trip? Yeah, I didn’t think so. The last time my husband and I really traveled was our trip to Italy in late 2017. I had maybe been sewing a year or so at that point, and was still very much in...
Easy, breezy, summer pants. That’s the perfect description for this make! When this fabric first caught my eye, I immediately pictured big, wide leg palazzo pants, flowing in the breeze while I sat poolside with a drink in my hand at an all-inclusive beach resort. I’m not sure the beach resort and poolside cocktail are in my immediate future, but...
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...
