Add Some Lace

Seriously, I don’t know what it is with me and kimonos. I just really love them as a little something extra to add on. So with that, I bring you another kimono (and don’t you worry, I have another one or two to share after this ;) ) Sometimes when I spot fabric I like […]

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. After being cooped up inside all winter, it feels really good to shed the old and welcome the new. Last week, I swapped out […]

Just in Time

One of my handmade resolutions this year has been to make more ‘everyday’ kind of clothing (which will continue as one of my #memademay goals). I would say that these pants fit that bill. I’ve been wanting to make a pair of paper-bag style pants for quite some time, it was just a matter of […]

The Fuzzy Bomber Jacket

It’s funny, as I sit here posting this and looking at the photos which were taken yesterday, and then look outside the window…something is missing. The snow. As you’ll see in the pics…there is snow on the ground. And less than 24 hours later, it is all gone. Weird how it can take a while […]

Silver & Gold

I told you there was more shiny coming! I said it once (or twice) and I’ll say it again. I’m into the metallic fabrics this year. I’ve sewn more than one (or two) pieces from shiny fabrics this year. They just add a little extra somethin’ somethin’. But I think the greatest thing about metallic […]

And this year, I am super into the metallics. Hence, my latest sewing adventure: gold metallic jogger pants. Ohhh yes. I have been […]

Nuts for Dyeing

I’m not going to lie, I have realllllly enjoyed this beautifully warm “Fall” we’ve been having. Only this week has it actually begun to feel like a more typical Fall with some colder temps. Don’t get me wrong, I adore Fall…but I am also quite the freeze baby–so the warmer it is for longer, I’m […]

Woman, In Gold

Lately, I’ve been really into metallics. Or maybe I’m just drawn to all things shiny and sparkly ;) But really, they’re fun and can seriously add a whole new element to any ensemble. To be honest, I made this kimono on a wimb a couple months ago. I was browsing through JoAnn’s one day and […]
