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!

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...
How to Sew With Chiffon Summer is my favorite time of year to sew for! It’s the one time of year when you can fully embrace every bright shade of color and have fun with light and airy silhouettes. I always enjoy working with solid-colored fabrics because it gives you the opportunity to put a spotlight on a fun detail. In...
