The (Re)Making of a Wedding Gown Pt 1

When my husband proposed to me on Easter 2017, a million things went through my mind. “About time,” “I hope he knows what he’s in for,” and “oh crap, I’m going to have to make a wedding dress now,” were in my top three. We aren’t traditional in many senses, so we didn’t know where […]

Hack a Jacket to a Puffer Vest

Turn Shorts into Swim Shorties!

My kids are really into swim shorties these days and I ain’t complaining. They’re super quick and easy to sew, and don’t take up much fabric. Old me surely would have spent way too much time browsing pattern group companies, looking for a “swim shorties” specific pattern. Fortunately, present me has grown confident enough in […]
