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!
