The 1950’s House Wife Dress, AKA McCall’s M6696

Every day at work, I fantasize what it would be like to be a housewife. I would gladly trade answering hundreds of questions, writing evaluations, and waking up early for cleaning, cooking, and sewing. I know most women out there would cringe to hear this (Girl power!

Game of Thrones Daenerys Targaryen Costume

It’s officially Halloween week! I absolutely love dressing in costume, so I’m pretty darn excited! Since I don’t have Mardi Gras to dress up and celebrate anymore, I have to make Halloween count. This is the first year since I’ve been sewing steadily that I’ve made my costume. I was originally thinking of being Ariel… Continue reading Game of Thrones Daenerys Targaryen Costume
