2018 Year in Review

Happy new year! I had so much fun over the holidays and I wish you the best in the new year. The past year saw a growth in the sheer amount of sewing I did. I made 46 items vs 27 in 2017! I can say I am growing more confident in my sewing, which... Continue Reading →

Green Dressy Casual Dress

We got invited to another wedding. Yaaay! It was 2 weeks out and I decided that I wanted to make another dress for it, because the ones I have all have some sort of issue whether it is fit or being uncomfortable in them somehow. Besides, it gave me a chance to sew for the... Continue Reading →

Floral Oopsy Daisy Jumper

Confession: I have had this fabric to make some nice pants for Lillian for at least a year. It had been all planned out but she had so many pants already that still fit her. And then summer came and her pants were now capris and I still didn't need to make pants for her.... Continue Reading →

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 →

Cream Lengha Altered

When my friend, Sangeeta, found out I was sewing, she brought over two Indian lenghas to be altered. They were both too long, and outdated. She wanted them to fit well and look more in line with her style. One of the lenghas was cream colored, full of bead work and embroidery. Really, look at... Continue Reading →
