An Easy Update: From White to Blue

Did you ever have something you liked but maybe didn’t wear much, or something just wasn’t exactly right about it…yet you didn’t want to throw away? That’s where some good ol’ RIT dye comes in handy. I didn’t make this one, but I’ve had this easy, breezy summer dress with a little keyhole and knot […]

Dressed for the Holiday

Raise your hand if you’re ready for Spring!! Seriously, I am definitely feeling the Spring fever…especially after such a chilly Easter day.

Fluttering into Spring

You know how when you find that t-shirt you love with the perfectly soft and drapey cotton, so you buy it in every color? It’s sort of the same as when I find a pattern I really like…I tend to make it over and over. Β As per usual, I made this flutter dress (M7566) with […]

The “Carrie” Coat

I have a confession to make. I am a bit obsessed with ALL of the coats Sarah Jessica Parker wears as Carrie Bradshaw in Sex and the City. I’d say it was how I related to Carrie the most…she obviously had a love of coats and jackets, which has also been the truth for me […]
