Free and Cute Peplum Top? Count Me In!

*I drafted this post before my move overseas, so here’s me in Tucson! And slightly late on the summer sewing posts, whoopsie!* I love free patterns but sometimes the drafting quality leaves a lot to be desired. I can’t blame them, though, because… well, it’s FREE! I was iffy about the Peppermint Peplum Top from… Continue reading Free and Cute Peplum Top? Count Me In!

Someday I’ll Be Part of Your World

…Or I’ll at least keep making more Little Mermaid clothes and live vicariously as a mermaid through them! I saw this knit Little Mermaid fabric at Joann’s and just had to get the last yard! I’ve been on the lookout for a TLM print in something more wearable than quilting cotton or that cheap-feeling satin… Continue reading Someday I’ll Be Part of Your World

There’s a new post on the Cali Fabrics blog about my newest Ginger Jeans! Y’all, these are amaaazing! I thought these were going to be a big flop because of the fabric (I purposefully chose it to see how it would work as “jeans”), but I am pleasantly surprised! I discuss the details over at… Continue reading Ginger Jeans – Now With More Stretch!

So “Plaid” to Finally Make the Lander Pants!

Soooo remember how I made DD a pair of “ugly” plaid pants? (And by “ugly” I mean AWESOME.) Well, I figured a couple who plaids together stays together, so I made myself some matching plaid pants from the True Bias Lander Pants pattern! Isn’t this $#!t crazy?? To make it even crazier, I didn’t even… Continue reading So “Plaid” to Finally Make the Lander Pants!
