******Disclaimer for those afraid of heights- PLEASE READ******* Please be aware, there WILL be photos below that show me standing on the edge of the Grand Canyon, and in the middle of a mojor highway in Monument Valley.

Note: This post is part of a sewing and travel documentary, as I share what I sew and experience during our two month RV tour of the American Southwest. You can read part one of that series HERE. After San Diego, we were originally scheduled to journey to Lake Havasu in Arizona, but I quickly…

Testing in the RV: New Horizons Maui Tank

By Sarah | June 26, 2019 | 12 Comments

I wondered, when we started our journey, whether or not I’d be able to test patterns while traveling. While I’ve cut back alot recently, I still love testing patterns, both for the incentive to sew and the motivation to try new techniques. The biggest hurdles to this however, were printing ability and fabric. My “home”…

Hey friends! It’s June first, and in my book, that means SUMMER!! (Please don’t educate me about complicated things like the solstice and actual astrological constants as they pertain to the seasons, because my brain has been turned OFF for the next three months!) This year, that means that not only do I get to…

Loving Linen for Spring…

By Sarah | May 24, 2019 | 2 Comments

I’ve really fallen hard for linen lately. It started with the Samara pants (blogged here), and just snowballed from there- and I can tell you (with no shame!) that I now have 12 yards of the stuff sitting on my front porch, waiting for me to get home from work and throw it into the…

Tested: Melbourne Top

Here’s a confession for you: I love being a mom. I even love being pregnant, when I’m not nauseous/cranky/toddling about on ankles the size of telephone poles. But I HATE maternity clothes. Unfortunately, I don’t have the type of body that just goes along through pregnancy completely normal except for a slight front bulge- nope-…

By Sarah | May 15, 2019 | 8 Comments

  Have you ever tried a style that went far outside of your comfort zone and “rules for dressing”? Wide legged pants have long been on my list of no-go’s when it comes to style- while they looked amazing on long legged Amazonian models, I feared they would overwhelm my petite pear shaped frame and…

Not So Basic Leggings….

By Sarah | May 6, 2019 | 4 Comments

If you haven’t already figured this out based on the sheer number of athletic posts on my blog, I wear leggings alot. I never thought I’d be on the #leggingsarerealpants team, but here I am, wearing them as a main staple for my very active life. I’m currently training for a half/full marathon (haven’t decided…
