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 […]

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 […]

When Projects Blossom

When you have camera related issues I suppose that sets you back a little with blog posting. That, and you know, life. While I intended to post these on Valentine’s day, my camera’s SD card had other plans. Plans to stop working. I was afraid I was going to lose all these pictures of this […]

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 […]

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 […]

Fall Jacket: Quilted

Brrrr! It’s a bit chilly on this first day of October as I sit here writing this, but it is the morning, and I know that it will likely warm up throughout the day especially as the sun comes out. Like I talked about in my last post though, these are the weather days that […]

From Summer to Fall

Don’t get me wrong, I love Fall and think it’s a great season–probably my favorite–but this year, I’m just not excited for Fall quite yet. It seems like the cooler weather came on so fast this year, whereas other years we often get a nice, drawn out Indian summer well into October. It’s like I […]
