How to make a coordinated set!

Let me just put a disclaimer out there, Summer is over when I say so! LOL. Or at least until temperatures drop. I mean, we barely got to be outside anyway, so I'm going to let this season stretch for as long as possible. My fabric is definitely Summer/resort vibes all the way, but I…

The Saraste dress by Named Clothing!

The moment of truth...I bought this fabric on a whim. When I got it in the mail, I still wasn't sure what to do with it. I heavily considered a shirt dress from the beginning, but I seriously thought that it would look cheesy. Even as I sewed it, I doubted what it could really…

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…

TATB Suki Dress pattern hack!

Hello friends! Would you believe me if I told you that this is the Suki dress pattern from Tilly & the Button's latest book "Make it Simple"? I know, it's crazy right. To be fair, this dress was a completely different idea and color - but when that didn't work out, I had to start…

I’m a blogger for Mood Sewing Network!

Happy Monday friends! Can I just tell you that I am bursting all over with happiness and excitement concerning this announcement? I have been such a fan of Mood, going back to season 1 of Project Runway. And anytime I’m in New York I always find time to stop by the shop and take in…

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…
