2 looks, 1 Talvikki sweater tunic!

Happy Monday y'all! If you follow me on Instagram (@ravenmaureen_) then you know that I've already shared this look a few times. Once in my stories for a nice date night with my boo. And the second time, last week as a shirt. That's just how versatile this tunic is! Or...maybe that's just how short…

My Solina dress + 8 reasons that I love “Breaking the Pattern” by Named Clothing!

Happy Monday!! It’s already March! Wow, 2020 is zooming by! So I promise that this post is not an ad in anyway. But I can’t get enough of “Breaking the Pattern” and the ladies behind Named Clothing. This is my second make from the collection in the book, and I kid you not, it fits…

My Spring Motojacket | A Slow Fashion Experience

Maybe I'm jumping the gun a bit in calling this my Spring motojacket but it's already breaking into 65 degrees here in South Carolina. This is typical for us during this time of year. And in knowing that, I started working on my jacket over the Christmas break. I had every intention of being finished…

A J.Crew inspired Christmas PJ set!

Christmas is almost here! Can you believe how quickly this year has gone by? Every year I promise myself a pair of matching PJs and this year, I finally did it. I used Simplicity pattern 8803 and made a nice matching set. I used size M for the pants and size S for my top.…

5 ways to rock leopard this Fall | a layered look!

I know it's been forever since I've blogged and probably longer since I've made and worn something leopard, but when life happens... you have to move! LOL. I'm keeping it short and sweet this week. I made a quick Lou box top by Sew DIY (anyone surprised?) and layered it with my thrifted blazer. My…

Working Girl Outfit | The York Pinafore

I've danced with the idea of making a pinafore for more than a year now. I've seen the York Pinafore made in almost every single way and each one always looks so personal and unique from the next. So I tried my hand at the pattern. After reading the directions and realizing how straight forward…

A Baby Doll Dress | McCall Pattern 7977 Review

Happy Monday! Every once in a while I like to indulge my inner old-soul vintage vibes and make something retro. As soon as I saw this pattern in the McCall catalogue, I knew that it could be something really great. It's true what people say. A sewing pattern is like a cooking recipe. You can…

An Autumn Date Night Look!

It's a complete coincidence that yesterday I posted a matching separates look...and that here I am again, doing the same thing! Ha! I originally made this outfit for a date night for my trip to Jackson, Mississippi to see my boyfriend and the weather switched up completely when I landed so I never got to…

5 ways to rock leopard this Fall | Ready-to-wear

It's always nice when you can go into a store and look at a garment and say "I know how this was made!" Or, "I bet I can make that!" And often times, I leave a clothing store feeling more empowered than ever to finish projects and make my next outfit. But what happens when…

A coffee run in my Lou box top

It seems like the entire Summer I was surrounded by sewists who made beautiful garments from the Crowded Faces collection by Lady McElroy. I went back and forth on if I loved the fabric (it is quite an investment). Then by the time I wanted to purchase it, Summer was over and I had to…
