Originally published on 1/17/2019 Hi friends!! After writing my post about why I sew (which I will re-upload this week), I started thinking about those people who would often tell me they wish they could sew. I came to the realization that every day, in at least one of my sewing groups, I see people […]
Hi everyone! Back again on this lovely Saturday, but this time with another tutorial. I received this gorgeous ombre striped ITY from The Material Girls* and knew it’d make a perfect maxi skirt. After browsing and sifting through patterns I already owned, I didn’t come across anything that was exactly what I wanted. With a […]
Hello, lovely friends! I’ve been a bit quiet the past couple weeks, but I’m just working on figuring out how to do this blogging thing forreal. Today I’m sharing with you my first ever capsule sews. I’m calling this one a mini capsule because it’s only 4 pieces, even though I do get 6 total […]
I’ve almost got a kindergartener again, y’all! He was registered back in February, so it’s super official. I can’t believe it’s happened this fast, considering my cutie dudey feels like he was born last week. We don’t know what the fall will bring with COVID still looming around us, but whether the kids return in […]
I think I’m falling more in love with the concept of solids. Since taking up sewing, I’ve been in the mind of “solid clothes are cheap so why make them” but I’ve found myself singing a different tune, as of late. Amelia Lane Design’s New Arrivals lineup this week is packed with rayon spandex solids […]
When one of my sweet sewing friends invited me to sew up a new design she was releasing, I had a slight hesitancy and said it depended on the style. “You don’t trust me,” she said, and sent over her one of her test photos. I got trust issues, it’s true, but I should have […]
Hi y’all! Today I’ve got a slightly new experience to share with you. Though I’ve been sewing strikes for a couple of years, this was the first time I was reached out to buy a widely known fabric supplier, such as Art Gallery. One of my sewing peeps, Karly of Paisley Roots, sews for them […]
Do you love off the shoulder tops? Ya know the cute banded kind or the types with drawstring ties or elastics that are expected to stay in place all day while you’re moving around? I love them too….but that (and the fact that I hate strapless bras AND going braless makes me uncomfortable) oftentimes makes […]
Hi friends!! Spring has most definitely sprung out here on the west coast, and with that, I’ve been itching to add more spring pieces to my wardrobe. Today’s New Arrivals at Amelia Lane Designs were perfect for a couple new garments. I also took this opportunity to start purging some of my old printed patterns […]
I’ve been sewing strikes and pattern tests since late 2018. Over the course of this time, I’ve often rotated between sewing for myself, our two kiddos, or my husband. I often have a vision for the fabrics that I sign up to sew or combos of them to put together for new patterns. It’s always […]
