There have been a LOT of weddings this past year. I don’t know if it’s because 2015 seems like a cool year to do it or if it just so happened that everyone I know is at marrying age RIGHT NOW. I recently went back home to New Orleans to attend two more of my… Continue reading Wedding Guest Party Dress!
By now you might start thinking I’m obsessed with the character Daenerys Targaryen from Game of Thrones, as documented by my Halloween costume from last year and the dress I made to go to my friends’ wedding. I blame the awesome costuming in the show… and dragons. Having dragons makes anyone cooler. I also blame… Continue reading Gettin’ Khaleesi Up in Here
Hello, everyone! I hope y’all are staying cool with these record high temperatures! My family and friends back in New Orleans are melting and we’re hitting above 100 degrees yet again here in Tucson. I can’t wait for fall to get here. It will be another couple of months until we see cooler temperatures, so… Continue reading The Tank Top With a Window to My Soul… Errr….. Back
Hello there! I hope you all are doing well. For my ‘Murrican friends, I hope you survived tax day. DD and I barely did, but we’re glad it’s all behind us now. ‘Til next year… Anyway, I’m going to share a top that I had high hopes for, but I believe the fabric is what… Continue reading Cynthia Rowley Strawberry Top
I’ve been on many business trips over the past 5 months with last week’s trip being the last for a while. Thank gawd. While I enjoy a chance to get out of the office, it would have been better to spread them out a bit. C’est la vie. For this Throwback Thursday post, I’m gonna… Continue reading Throwback Thursday: The “Don’t Hire Me” Suit
The weather is finally out of the 90’s here in Tucson, so that means it’s officially fall!! Granted, we’re still hovering in the 80’s, but a desert girl’s gotta take what she can get. I’ve noticed the kimono trend running rampant in the sewing blogosphere. I love all things Asian, so I’m down with the… Continue reading Fall Kimono of Doom!
DD’s and my wedding anniversary is approaching! One year ago on October 12, the magic happened. Well, maybe not magic but it was a lot of fun/stress/relief/more fun/exhaustion! That’s how weddings go. But for this TBT I’m not sharing the projects I made for my wedding day (pssst, stop by next week for that!). Instead,… Continue reading Throwback Thursday: Bridal Brunch Dress
Vintage. It seems as though the majority of sewists out there are all about the vintage patterns, styles, inspiration, etc. While I think some vintage pieces are pretty nifty and interesting, it’s not really my cup of tea. I don’t think I quite have defined my style yet, but I definitely wouldn’t call it “vintage.”… Continue reading 50’s Vintage Bra Top
Lately it seems like I’ve been posting about “doom” projects. You know, those projects that are a little trickier than you’d like or that end up turning their back on you in the worst way. But don’t worry, this is the last one for a while — I promise! Enter Simplicity 1613 in January of… Continue reading Throwback Thursday: Simplicity Shirt of Doom
Happy Thursday, y’all! For this TBT, I’d like to share a comfortable skirt that’s been worn to death at work but ended up turning its back on me years later. Simplicity 2655 was one of the first skirt patterns I bought. It’s not really my style, but I was looking for “easy” projects at the… Continue reading Throwback Thursday: Skirt Turned Into Cautionary Tale
