How to transition your me-makes from Summer to Fall!

The season is definitely changing around here! Temps are slowly dropping and I'm noticing dryer air. YAY! I've been waiting for a change. But also, as someone who makes their clothes, changes in the season can bring a sort of sadness. I'm not quite ready to put away my favorite shorts, the Pietra shorts from…

My new wrap dress plus a pattern review of Closet Core Pattern’s Elodie Dress!

Happy Monday friends! Can I share the goodness that is my new wrap dress? Ever since I made the Tecoma blouse I’ve started embracing more wrap silhouettes. The Elodie dress is new from Closet Core Patterns. It comes in three views I believe, the knee length, the midi and the maxi with two variations of…

Free Pattern: The Tecoma Blouse by Mood Sewciety

Happy Sunday y’all! This month I decided to participate in Sew Your View’s (@sewyourview) monthly sewing challenge. This was my first time since every single time before I literally miss the deadline. Ugh. This month’s pattern was the Tecoma Blouse by Mood Sewciety. (PSST...Mood has free sewing patterns). This blouse is a nice wrap top…

My pattern review of the Marcel dress

Hi y’all! Let’s go on and get it out of the way...I am thoroughly in love with this pattern. This is the latest pattern by Chalk & Notch, the Marcel dress. It’s a tiered and gathered midi dress that comes in a mini and a tank version. The pattern is very on trend this Summer…

Tiers & gathers: my new lemon print Summer dress!

Happy Sunday! I have been super busy trying to make sure that I have all the outfits for my upcoming trip (more on that later) that I’ve been a bit M.I.A lately. Well, for my standards of content.... I have felt somewhat absent. But can we talk about my lemon print dress and how much…

The look for less! My vintage inspired halter dress!

Happy Tuesday! On Sunday I posed the question to my followers on Instagram...who influences your style? I got so many various answers. A lot of grandmas, moms and aunties were mentioned. And I too, count myself in that group. I know I’m known mostly for 60s and 70s flare but that had to come from…

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…

My new Mimi G Style Summer skirt!

TGIF! I know July 4th themes will be super strong in less than 24 hours but let’s just enjoy this citrus yellow skirt for a minute. I used Mimi G Style pattern 8927 which came out last Summer, but it’s such a classic already...like, I can wear this anytime! My fabric is from Minerva. It’s…

My pink Summer dress! A Sorbetto dress hack!

So I recently co-hosted a giveaway with @thecornyrainbow on Instagram to celebrate reaching 4K followers. Any milestone always requires a new 'fit. Right? Well, I've been stressed and moving and just not coordinated with my adult responsibilities so I needed to make a quick dress that I knew would only take a few hours. I…

How I made a color block blouse!

TGIF! Lately I've been really inspired to get in on the color block action. I mean it's up and down my feed. I've seen so many other influencers really getting creative with it (@theravelout, @thecornyrainbow and @katiekortmanart are killing it)! And to be honest, I actually bought a whole pattern and some fabric to actually…
