My First Self-Drafted Pattern

Last week, I had a little extra time in my schedule, so I decided to play around with my dress form. We had just had a demonstration of draping with knits in my Fashion Draping course the week prior, so I decided to spend some time draping a knit torso sloper for myself. V1 was […]

Half Zip Neckline Hack

DIY: Easy Cotton Skirt Tutorial

Originally published 7/28/2017 I love sewing. It’s legitimately one of my favorite things to do. I hardly do it as much as I’d like because of two main reasons: 1) it can be time-consuming and 2) it can be costly. Since I reeeeallly broke my sewing machine back out of the box last year a […]

McCall’s 8205

Buttons and Buttonholes 101

DIY: Quick & Easy Sensory Bins

Originally published 1/25/2018 Today, I’ve got a tutorial for a quick & easy DIY for toddlers! My son is 21 months and loooooves getting his hands on any and everything. He loves exploring, digging, smooshing, and just overall checking out life through his sense of touch (also loves to sniff and eat everything). I made […]

2022 Sewing Plans

Yes it’s March 1. Yes I’m just now coming up with my sewing goals for the year. I went back and forth on the idea of participating in a year long sewing challenge, but honestly just couldn’t get life together to figure out which one. I was this close to doing the Make 9…and well, […]
