Holiday Dress for Baby!

Fail Friday: Fabric Planning Fail!

I was super excited the other day, when I was able to get my Centerfield/Scarlet Swing dress mash-up out of a single yard of fabric. I mean, a whole dress for $7? What’s not to love? In fact, I was so excited, that I assumed I could get it out of any yard in my…

Eating my words: Centerfield Swing Mash-up

I’ve been invited to many LulaRoe parties, but never had the slightest interest in attending.

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!),…

Sewing Staples: The Green Tee

Its fun to sew fancy clothing, with intricate details and a big wow factor. But that’s not what I wear on a daily basis. What I wear on a daily basis, are T shirts. Sure, I could buy an ill fitting and poorly constructed one at target for $15, but it would fall apart after…
