Coral Floral Girls Sundress: McCalls 7079

Not sure why I never got around to sharing this look, but better late than never. After first trying liverpool knit from Finch Fabrics to make McCalls 7046  I fell in love with it.  Apparently so did Miss Socialite because she wanted to know when I was going to make her something with it. I…

Wine Floral Maxi: McCalls 7561

Who doesn’t love a maxi dress? I mean they are great for spring, summer and fall. I never seem to have enough but my go to maxi patterns have been McCalls 7121 and 6744, but I when Maggie Elaine shared her version of McCalls 7561 on Instagram I decided I needed one too.

Simplicity 8264: A Fabric Mart Guest Post

Can you believe how fast summer is flying by? It’s almost Labor Day! So despite the fact that it has been insanely hot here in the southeast and will likely stay that way weeks after the “unofficial end of summer” it’s almost time for me to start sewing for fall. If you have followed me…

How I spent my L.A. Finch Fabrics Giftcard!

Back in February I won a Valentine’s Day Instagram Giveaway from L.A. Finch Fabrics. YAYYYY ME! The giveaway was for a $25 gift card and a Lapel Pin! I had promised myself I wasn’t going to purchase any fabric in 2017 until I at least made some semblance of a dent in my fabric stash,…

Floral Jumper – Kwik Sew 4138

Can you tell I love this print?! LOL It should look familiar if you saw my V8977 post. I mentioned in that post that this print was the inspiration for my Suduko Wardrobe. Joann carries this Asian Floral Multi print in the silky crepe I used for the tunic and the stretch twill I used for…

Suduko Contest Inspiration – Vogue 8977

  I shared a week or two ago that I was going to enter the Suduko Wardrobe contest over on Pattern Review. This contest is quite the challenge. Similar to traditional Suduko you must complete a 4×4 board with top, bottom, shoes and an accessory that go together for each column, row and both diagonals….

Quilted Floral Knit Bomber – McCalls 7100

In my  Fall/Winter To Sew List I told y’all I was in love with bomber jackets. I had started three at the time of that post. I have since completed those three but you can read here and here about what happened with those if you missed it. So though this is the fourth bomber jacket…

Flower Power for Sweater Weather

I am so excited about these floral sweaters. Mostly I’m just pleased to have squeezed in some time to sew for myself. I loved mine so much I decided to make one for the “Little Miss”. I knew she would want one for her doll so I went ahead whipped up a mini one as well. One thing that…

Floral on Stripes Maxi Dress – McCalls 6744

I’ve made and posted this dress before in a black aztec jersey here but I liked it so much I made it again. This time I made it out of this gorgeous lightweight rayon knit. This fabric is so light it almost feels like you’re wearing nothing which is great for hot southern summer days….

Floral Linen Wrap Skirt -Inspiration Pic

As a DIYer I spend way to much time on Pinterest, Facebook, Instagram and just online in general searching for new ideas, tutorials, patterns and inspiration. Since I am constantly trying to expand and improve my self drafting skills. I like to screenshot or pin inspiration garments when I see them to try to recreate…

Floral Challis Belted Dress – Vogue 8915

I love my virtual sewing sisterhood!!! One of my sewsisters gifted me with this (and 18 other) patterns. She had been lucky enough to stumble upon a massive 300+ pattern find and was giving away the duplicates. Isn’t that sweet?! Vogue 8915 is one of the patterns I picked because it looked like a comfy easy breezy summer…
