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? I am finding my wardrobe to be… Continue reading New Blog Series: What Am I Making?
Hello Everyone! Yes, it has been much too long since my last blog post. Thankfully, that is not completely my fault. I have been having so. many. issues. with my computer recently. Thankfully, after wiping the hard drive and re-installing everything, it appears to be back in to working order. Yay! I have been having… Continue reading Me Made May Pledge 2017
And spring has arrived! After two weeks of chilly, wintery weather, the balmy spring days have returned. Which is fitting considering that yesterday, March 20th, was the first official day of spring. I know there will probably be several more cold days, but I am so excited to see those days becoming less and less.… Continue reading Gertie’s Zipper Front Dress Review

Before I get into the pattern review,… Continue reading Simplicity 8013 Pattern Review
If you hadn't noticed, this is a fairly similar dress as the last post. I have been busy working away on Christmas presents and, as I haven't managed to take any pictures yet, I decided to do another wedding outfits post. My sister and I did a little mini-photoshoot shortly before we had to head… Continue reading Gertie’s Princess-Seam Dress
First off, before I get into the lovely sewing bits, I want to apologize for the random blog posts that may have appeared and then disappeared this past week. I was attempting to connect my blog with my Youtube account in order to make it easier to transition from my podcast to my website, but,… Continue reading Burgundy Colette Pastille Dress
I sewed up this dress last year for the Fourth of July. I am almost positive that I used McCall's 6891, but I don't have the pattern in front of me to double-check. I used a quilting cotton and red buttons from Joann, and the lace around the armholes is from my stash . I… Continue reading Fourth of July Dress: 2015
