My Two Teahouse Dresses

I had been eyeing the Teahouse Dress pattern by Sew House 7 for some time before I finally bought it. By the time I finally got around to making it, I was on a hiatus from sewing in my own apartment because of a confrontation with our old downstairs neighbor that was the final strawContinue reading “My Two Teahouse Dresses”

Hooray for the Wiksten Haori!

  I had been eyeing the Wiksten Haori pattern for some time but the steep price of $18 was holding me back. Finally I just bit the bullet and purchased it and I am so glad I did!

When Allie Olson of Indie Sew first announced this year’s Shirt Month back towards the end of January, I was excited to finally be pushed to make the Kalle Shirt.

Their Pinterest board was full of woodland creature themed decor so I went onto Fabric.com and searched for “woodland creature fabric” and loaded up my cart with everything that I thought mightContinue reading “Mini Moy Baby Gift Roundup”

Striped Chambray Tamarack Jacket

I had had my eye on the Tamarack Jacket by Grainline Studio for a while because I still wore my old North Face fleece jacket from college when the weather turned cool in the Fall and I wanted something more adult looking.

Restyle Exchange 2018

This is one of the last projects I worked on in our old apartment. I was afraid to take part in the Restyle Exchange 2018 at first but once I received these garments from Rosy Retrospection, I became so excited. Before she sent me her items, Rosy messaged me three different sets of options throughContinue reading “Restyle Exchange 2018”

So Many Scout Tees, So Little Motivation to Take Pictures For Me Made May

Every May, I get so excited for Me Made May because I love the sewing inspiration it provides. This year I pledged to wear at least three me made garments a week without any repeats.
