My favorite tool to make masks!

Disclaimer: this is not an ad nor am I affiliated with any companies listed. I may have retired from making masks, but I know many of you are still waist deep in making them. And as news reports have suggested that we need to "hunker down" here in America, I'm sharing my favorite tool that…

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).

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 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…

Five beginner sewing patterns for a newbie sewista!

The other day I shared some of my favorite tools and now I'm talking about my favorite beginner sewing patterns. Most of these will be indie patterns and here's why.

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?

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…
