Red Hi-Lo Shirt Dress: SewSewDef Katie

As soon as Mimi teased this shirt dress I knew I had to have it. The Katie shirt dress is one of two free patterns included in the third issue of SewSewDefMag. I knew I was excited about this pattern because it is 45 page pdf pattern and I still wanted to make it. Typically I stick…

Camouflage Hi Lo Tank Top: Simplicity 1167

This fabric should look familiar as I’ve already sewn a t-shirt out of it, here. I purchased two yards of this camouflage rayon jersey from LA Finch Fabrics so I had about half of it left after making the tee, which was enough for another simple top. This time I went for a simple tank using Simplicity…

Cropped Wide Leg Pants – Simplicity 8093

Four bottoms are needed for a Suduko wardrobe. I had specific plans for one block (that’s coming next week) and I knew one would be jeans (because…jeans).

Wow, just wow! I do not know where to start. Seriously I had an amazing non-stop weekend full of learning new sewing techniques, making friends and seeing some of LA. I guess I’ll start at the beginning, I arrived in LA around 10am along with 3 other Darlings who happened to be on my flight….

Passion to Profit – Meeting My Sewing Inspiration, Mimi G

If you have read my About Me page or spent any time on my blog before today you know that Mimi G is my sewing inspiration.
