Striped Denim Skirt: Simplicity 2258

Sadly everything I make can’t be amazing and I definitely feel that this skirt is lackluster. I called myself whipping up a quick skirt for FabricMart‘s Skirt Challenge. Since I didn’t have much time I decided to go for a straight forward sew. I’ve made Simplicity 2258 before at the beginning of my sewing journey. Then…

Back to Basics: Simple T-shirt – New Look 6838

I usually wouldn’t post about a simple project like this but this is the second piece I’ve completed for the Suduko Wardrobe Contest and I plan to do a post for each of the ten pieces. One of the reasons I decided to participate in the contest was to make myself to sew some separates. If…

Striped Girls Hoodie Dress-McCalls 6785

I’m a selfish sewer. Though I do sew for hire and for friends and family on occasion, I enjoy sewing for myself most, if I’m being honest. That said my second favorite person to sew for is my stepdaughter, miss socialite. Mainly because she’s a sweetie, my biggest fan/salesperson and she loves to “twin” (her term for…

Striped Duster – Fabricista Post

Have you ever run out to buy a pattern with the intention to make it right away, but then you get side tracked and days become weeks that become months? Well, that is what happened with early fall pattern, Simplicity 8177. I purchased this pattern this summer with plans to make it right away for…

Striped Hoodie Dress – A Frankenpattern

When I saw this striped hoodie on either Facebook or Instagram I knew I had to make it. 1) It looked comfy B) it was striped and III) it was black and white. (lol) All of my favorites in one and a definite no-brainer! Sadly I am on a fabric fast (seriously I must make a dent…

Black and Grey Wrap Sweater – Vogue 9111

If there are any of you who follow my blog regularly I apologize that I haven’t been posting much lately. There are several reasons for that most importantly I had some orders for TipStitched to fill, which is great! I want to keep my customers happy! Secondly, I think I needed a little break after the Fabricista Fashion Challenge. And…

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….

Striped Fitted Peplum Dress – McCalls 6886 modified

I wanted to bring you a quick piece as I know I haven’t posted in a while. I stumbled upon this look yesterday while looking for some sewing inspiration online. I needed something that I could sew up in an evening to have a post for today. As soon as I saw a Beaute J’adore’s Nautical…

Black and White Striped wrap bodice dress – Butterick 5950

Ever since I sewed up my leopard print version of this dress I knew I would sew it again and again. This is a pattern I desperately searched for as it was OOP by the time I “discovered” it. Thankfully one of my amazing sewsistas had this pattern in her stash and gifted me with…

Black and Cream Stripe Racerback Maxi – M6744 B

I made this in mid-March while it was still rather chill here in the South. I hate the winter and was so ready for spring, but it just seemed like it Old Man Winter just wouldn’t leave. So I started sewing spring/summer clothing in the hopes urge Mother Nature along via positive thinking. Well I think…
