I recently started going to the gym with my husband. Now, I don't know about you, but I feel extremely awkward exercising.

And now I am laying in bed eating some cold watermelon to… Continue reading Outfit Along 2017: Sewing Plans
I have decided to change things up a little. Instead of my usual "finished garment" post, I am going to share some "work-in-progress" photos. I've noticed that I am constantly trying to come up with a new sewing project in order to have a blog post. The problem?
