It’s caftan season!

Happy Saturday! I know things are hard right now because it’s hot, you have your mask on, and more than anything you would like to dip in a pool and socialize without thinking twice about your health. But can I show you an outfit that makes you feel like you’re at a resort, pool or…

The look for less! My new striped Pietra pants!

Happy Wednesday everyone! If you follow me on Instagram then you know that I teased these pants on Sunday only to turn around and have it rain for 2 days before pictures. Oh the horror! But that’s life sometimes. These pants were a dream come true. I knew I wanted a pair of casual striped…

The Jessica dress by Mimi G Style

Hey friends! I know that this is the second Mimi G pattern I’ve shared in a row, but this was not on purpose. Actually, I made this dress for a funeral. I know, what a way to bring the mood down. But it’s true! My Great Uncle passed away, and I did not have a…

Disrupting the status quo

Hey everyone!

My sewing playlist!

So I did a thing. I made a playlist of my top songs that I listen to when I'm sewing! I promise there's something there for everyone because I literally love everything and grew up in a musical household. Even words and songs that I can't understand sometimes. They still evoke an emotion that transcends…

My little floral boho dress! | Simplicity 8839 pattern review + hack

Happy Saturday! You guys, I don't care if everyone hates this... I love my boho floral dress. I don't have a lot of floral belongings. It's not because I hate it, only because there is never an opportunity. So when my sew sister Macy (@macycamile) sent me this fabric, I wanted to really make it…
