Tutorial: Cutting & Sewing Stripes for a Perfect Finish

Confession Time: I LOVE wearing stripes. They’re a great way to add visual interest, a second (or third, or fourth) color to a basic wardrobe staple, and can be sewn in so many different ways (color-blocked, on the bias, etc.). BUT, ( and this is a big but)….I haven’t always loved sewing them. My perfectionist…

Tabor V-Neck and Moto Inspires

There’s nothing better than combining a tried and true pattern with a brand new one….and finding a perfect match! This sweater/leggings combo gets all the #momiform love from me, and works really well for the weather related whiplash we’ve been experiencing as spring and winter battle it out for supremacy on my weather app (seriously,…

Shiny Fabric Weaknesses….and a Full Front Power Bra Hack!

Tutorial: Perfect Knit Binding Every Time!

In preparation for the Moxi shorts Sew-Along (join me HERE on 7/23/18) I thought I’d make a few more tanks to match and motivate myself on my new workout routine (killer abs here I come!). I chose the Lille tank from Greenstyle- I’ve made it before as a dress here, and as a tank here…

Hacked! Summit Peak Hoodie with Nursing Access

I’ve been waiting on the women’s Summit Peak Hoodie ever since I tested the children’s version late last year.
