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 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…

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!

Summer coordinates! Mixing prints again!

TGIF everyone! Ok, so you want the truth? This outfit was supposed to come with me with to New Orleans, but it never made it in the suitcase.  When we took these photos I was not completely satisfied with the fit of the shorts so I wanted to alter them again. Welp, we all know…

Road Trippin’: The London Bookbag

So making a bookbag has been on my bucket list for quite some time! As a bag designer on Etsy I even get requests from folks asking if I make bookbags. And my answer has always been "Sadly, no." There was no opportunity like the present to really try my hand at making a bookbag…

My Weekend Look: A Head-To-Toe Me Make!

TGIF! Has anyone else begun shutting down their work? It's 5 o'clock somewhere! I know most of you are used to seeing me in girly looks, frilly dresses and pink overalls but, if I'm headed for a weekend trip or a quick run to the fabric store, I love a great, simple dress...preferably black. I…

Granny Chic: My Up-cycled Goodwill Dress

I did it! I completed my first up-cycle. And I let me just say, I need to do these more often! It was fun, quick and it was almost like a little brain exercise because you have to deconstruct and rebuild. Plus, my dress was only $6, so let's just say I saved a ton…
