Pattern Review: Jalie Criss Cross Nursing Top

By Sarah | July 15, 2017 | 2 Comments

There are many nursing friendly patterns out there, but patterns specifically designed for nursing can be hard to come by. That’s where my love for Jalie comes in- they have a great line-up of patterns designed to make a nursing mama’s life easier (and what nursing mama doesn’t need a break somewhere?!) but it doesn’t stop…

Dress up this Town: Separates Edition!

By Sarah | July 15, 2017 | 13 Comments

I’m excited to be a part of Ti’s “Dress Up this Town” blog tour today! You might be noticing something different about my post…..it doesn’t contain any dresses! I’ll confess to a bit of a misunderstanding here- when Ti posted the call for this tour and the accompanying song (I love a good theme song!),…

Tip Tuesday: Side Boob (and how to avoid it!)

By Sarah | July 11, 2017 | 2 Comments

Happy Tuesday! We are back from vacation, and (semi) recovered from all our adventures (lets not talk about the laundry though, m’kay?) and I’m excited to share a new blog series with you: Tip Tuesday and Fail Friday! This idea came up while a dear friend was visiting a couple weeks ago- I’m sure you…

Vacation on the beach: Shaving…Optional!

By Sarah | July 10, 2017 | 2 Comments

I spent 2 weeks packing for our family vacation down south…using a series of carefully crafted checklists to avoid forgetting the mountains of essential gear that is crucial to survival with three young children…and do you know what I forgot? RAZORS!!! I traveled to the land of who-wears-the-least-wears-it-best with the intention of doing a full…

Applique Bikini Hack!

By Sarah | July 8, 2017 | 4 Comments

Since swimsuit season started (which is right after Valentine’s Day according to the ever strange advertising schedule of big box stores) I’ve been lusting over the applique swim bikini’s I’ve seen in those annoying (but sometimes useful) ads on Facebook. I was stymied, however, by what type of appliqué would be suitable for swim. Well,…

Green Tee Hack: Side Lace-Up!

By Sarah | July 2, 2017 | 6 Comments

You know what I LOVE about a great staple pattern? The ability of hack it of course! The Green Tee by Greenstyle Creations is a great example: solid drafting (no sleeves cut on the fold! Can I get a hallelujah?!), perennial style and clear instructions. In fact, I love the Green Tee so much, I’m…

June BeeBox: The Duchess Skirt!

By Sarah | July 1, 2017 | 12 Comments

I’ll admit, I was a bit stumped when I received my June Bee Box from Vinegar and Honey. I love stripes, but I don’t love sewing them (I’m a perfectionist, and all that matching drives me batty sometimes!). That, combined with the fact that its been in the triple digits here, had me scratching my…

Serape in the Sun

By Sarah | June 30, 2017 | 0 Comments

When I was a kid, we had this old Serape woven blanket that my dad picked up in Mexico on his travels. The colors were incredibly vivid, and despite heavy use, the blanket never seemed to show it’s wear. Some of my favorite childhood memories are of laying on this blanket at the beach, resting…

Always Be a Mermaid….

By Sarah | June 29, 2017 | 0 Comments

                               When I was a little girl, I was often home sick from school (chronic ear infections….plus a little lollygagging), and while I was “recovering”, my favorite thing to do was watch Peter Pan on VHS (am I dating myself a bit here?). The best part was when Peter is visiting the Mermaids in…

Bye bye Bikini!

By Sarah | June 27, 2017 | 43 Comments

I’ve been on a bit of a swimwear kick lately, and I’ve been dying for a sexy, yet functional (read: won’t fall off in the ocean) one-piece swimsuit, but it’s been a bit of a unicorn. Don’t get me wrong, I still have all the feels for the bikini’s I’ve sewn (see examples here, and…
