Shibori and Slow Fashion
A couple months ago, Stephanie (of Swoodson Says) put out a call for participants on a Shibori Dyeing Blog Tour. Now, I’ve never dyed a thing in my life, but that didn’t stop me from signing up and reassuring myself that it would be “quick and easy”. Whenever you tell yourself something is going…Read More
Fail Friday: Shibori Dyeing
Happy Friday! You’ve almost made it to the weekend, and that means its time for some humor at my expense in this week’s episode of Fail Friday! Regular failure is considered a learning opportunity here at Casa Sarah, so let’s dive right in and see what lessons I’ve learned this week! A few weeks ago,…Read More
Just a Small Town Girl!
Whew! How are you all surviving summer? Getting back into the triple digit heat was a bit of a shocker after our vacation, but we are doing our best to stay cool using our teeny tiny blow up pool from the Dollar Tree. Sure, we could invest in something more permanent and classy, but that…Read More

Pattern Review: Jalie Criss Cross Nursing Top
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…Read More
Dress up this Town: Separates Edition!
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!),…Read More
Tip Tuesday: Side Boob (and how to avoid it!)
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…Read More
Vacation on the beach: Shaving…Optional!
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…Read More
Applique Bikini Hack!
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,…Read More
Green Tee Hack: Side Lace-Up!
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…Read More
