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.

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…

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…

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 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…
