Peplum Twins

Peplum shirts are one of those styles I was scared to try. I felt they would make me look pregnant when I am not. So I was pleasantly surprised with how the Love Notions Margot Peplum fit on me. I knew I wanted to try the style after seeing similarly shaped people on Facebook sewing... Continue Reading →

Alina Dress

Me? Wear a strappy dress? I don't think so. 🤨 Other people look great in strappy dresses and such. I just feel naked. So I'm quite surprised that I really like this new dress I tested as a new tester for Rad Patterns. Pattern Description: The pattern is called Alina Romper and Dress. There are 4...

Summer Rash Guard 2.0

When I made rash guards last year, I didn't know what I was doing really. It was the first time I sewed with swim fabric, and it was quite the learning curve to deal with the slippery fabric. This year, though, I was able to bust these rash guard and shorts duo in no time!... Continue Reading →

Owl Work Dress

I finally entered a Pattern Review contest! I have been wanting to for some time but my sewing has been too slow to keep up. My original plan was to make a salwar kurta for Lillian out of a skirt I thrifted. But last week, I remembered it was take your child to work day; and naturally... Continue Reading →

Slow Fashion

It's Fashion Revolution week. What's that, you say? Well I didn't know either until just a few days ago. It is a movement to ask for more fair working conditions and greater transparency of who is making the clothes we wear. Five years ago, a factory in Bangladesh collapsed because of the unsafe conditions that... Continue Reading →
