Finally a fitted denim skirt.


Collaboration with Minerva Crafts* I’ve been lounging around in this two piece wonder ever since I made it. It’s been in the wash late Sunday evening and put on every Friday afternoon. The kimono has some amazing featured details I wouldn’t have thought of, but it makes it a truly unique and wonderful patten. That’s what I’ve noticed with Helen’s patterns, they might seem like simple makes, but they’re hidden details that make up the garment beautifully. I’ve also hacked […]

Lazy Sunday mornings…

Collaboration with Minerva Crafts*   Hi everybody, I’ve been so lucky to have tested the new fabric line from Lady McElroy over on the Minerva Crafts blog.

It’s amazingly beautiful and I used one of my tried and true patterns to make it. If you want to read it the link is below CLICK HERE […]

Flit
I was just casually checking Instagram during work (shh!) and saw Sew Over It released this pattern. I immediately purchased it right then and there.  I fell in love with it, but then again I love everything that Lisa Comforts wear. What I keep forgetting is that if it looks good on her, it doesn’t necessarily look good on me. I know my body shape, love it, and now know that the baggy bodice type dresses are really not my […]

Collaboration with Minerva Crafts* Do you have any new years resolutions? I have three that I would like to share with you: No new patterns. If I manage to make three patterns I haven’t made before from my stash I can allow myself to buy one new pattern, that’s it. If I start on another pattern without buying a new one, I then have to make up three from my stash before maybe buying one new. Reduce the fabric stash. […]

Happy new years, everyone!

The holiday season is upon us, and for me, that means two things. Family and friends, and good food. I choose to focus on the food part because that’s more important. Well, I mean, family and friends know how I look and love me anyway! The main focus was to have a […]

I myself got a tea advent calendar from my husband that I have already started my day with. I love advent calendars, whether it is made of chocolate, tea or whatever it’s made out of these days. It’s not a tradition that I grew up with, but a […]
