Hello again friends! Today I’m back with one of my favorite outfits of all time, because it’s all about my favorite place in the world: the ocean! We often get asked where our favorite place that we’ve been is, and anywhere with an ocean easily tops the list for me. I grew up in Southern…Read More
Snazzy New Workout Set!
Hey friends! See, I promised I’d be back shortly, and here I am! I’ve got another fun outfit to share today, one that involved a bit of struggle and some new techniques for me, and I”m excited to share it! When this “Secret Forest” print arrived in my mailbox from Sew Dynamic Fabrics, I fell…Read More
My FAVORITE beach in the world…so far (and a new bikini to wear on it)
Hello friends! I hope the Swim SewAlong that I did a while back has continued to inspire you to sew your own swimsuits, I know it has for me! Since we’ve been chasing a consistent 75 degrees, I feel like swimsuits have become a type of year round uniform, so there’s really no reason to…Read More
Dark Floral Obsession…and a Cami Tank Hack!
Yall, I don’t know what it is about dark floral prints, but I’m obsessed. Something about the juxtaposition between light and dark, the air of midnight romance, maybe too much Bridgerton…whatever it is, I can’t resist a good moody flower arrangement on a cut of fabric. So, when I saw the aptly named “Floral Nights”…Read More
Hello friends! Today have a couple fun new makes to share with you. Our winter in the keys really did feel like a tropical paradise, and when I saw this print come up from Sew Dynamic Fabrics, I couldn’t resist snagging a yard to make myself something. I started with the Greenstyle Spark Tights, which…Read More

Looking back (and finally making!)…my first athletic pattern purchases!
What were you drawn to when you first started sewing? For me, the ability to create my own custom fit athletic wear (and beat out Lululemon quality and price!) has been a focus since the beginning, and I’m proud to say I have no desire to shop retail for this type of clothing anymore. It’s…Read More
More Fall Athletics…
As some of you may know, we are trying to figure out, as a family, how we can make travel a more regular part of our lives. While the naysayers suggested that this year’s epic Summer Trip (see parts One, Two, Three and Four on the blog), in which we spent two months traveling the…Read More
Ringing in #BraAugust!
I don’t keep up with social media quite as much as I used to (trying to spend a little more time staying grounded in the present, these days), but I was really looking forward to BraAugust this year as a time to learn some new skills, and motivate myself to sew a few new…Read More
Lightening things up for Spring!
The weather forecast FINALLY shows a week of sunshine around here, and if I was like any normal person, I’d be breaking out last year’s capris and tanks. Of course, as my friends would tell you, I’m pretty far from “normal”- so naturally my response is to make new things for Spring instead! I started with…Read More
