Simple Summer Tank

One of the greatest perks of knowing how to sew is being able to re-create things you’ve seen someone wearing, at the stores, on TV, from music, art, etc. I am one who does this OFTEN and is probably what got me going with design in the first place, when I was very young and […]

Red, White Ruffle, and Blue

It’s officially Memorial Day weekend and I’m not sure about the rest of you but I usually find myself wearing my American pride with a tri-color ensemble of some kind. As it is nearing the end of #memademay and Memorial Day is around the corner, I wanted to bring out this white ruffle skirt I […]

Finding My Stripes

I think I’ve always considered Spring to be a favorite season of mine -when Ohio actually experiences one that is ;). Spring is the mark of new beginnings–figuratively and literally speaking.

Green [Sewing] Thumb

Yes. It is summer. And yes. I have also made yet another coat. Though, I will say, for as cool as June has been this year in CLE…there are some nights I could have probably used a coat like this. Don’t get me wrong, I’m loving this coat…but I am definitely crossing my fingers the […]

Check out the Gingham…

I’m pretty sure I made it a style resolution of mine to try to wear more prints this year. A few years ago, a co-worker made it a point to tell me how often I wear neutrals–which I often do, or maybe did more so when we worked together (what can I say, it makes […]
