Motif Studio Loop Bag

In the 9-ish years that I’ve been sewing consistently, I’ve only sewn exactly one bag, and it wasn’t the most pleasant experience (it’s been 3+ years since I made it). Then, about 3 weeks ago, I finally had the itch to try again, and now I have 3 bag patterns to share! This first bag is the Large Loop Bag … Continue reading “Motif Studio Loop Bag”

Pink Striped Olya Shirt

When I put this shirt on after I finished it, my husband told me it was “very me”. Which is a good thing to hear after spending three days making something. This is my third Olya Shirt (by Paper Theory, sizes 31.5-56″ bust) and for a $20 pattern, I’m getting my money’s worth out of it. Lol. I really loved … Continue reading “Pink Striped Olya Shirt”

Blomma Tank – Revisions & Styling

2023 was the year I truly embraced sleeveless things. Heatwaves without air-conditioning are just too dang hot, and I’d rather be comfortable. I was very interested in trying the Blomma Tank by Paradise Patterns, since it’s such a popular pattern in the sewing community. It’s also a FREE pattern if you sign up for Paradise Patterns newsletter (score!). It’s a … Continue reading “Blomma Tank – Revisions & Styling”

2023 Sewing Year End Review

Every year, for the past 7 years (since 2016), I’ve shared my ‘Top Nine’ (posts that got the most engagement) on Instagram, but I’ve never shared it here. I don’t know why that is! But I decided it would be a fun to share and reflect here where I can link to things much easier. I was looking through my … Continue reading “2023 Sewing Year End Review”

Christmas Stockings

Merry Christmas! Today’s project is a little bit different than my usual clothes sewing project, but I was so excited that these stockings turned out so good, and I wanted to share. We had very limited bag space when we moved in June, so holiday decor was pretty low on my packing priority list. When it got closer to December, … Continue reading “Christmas Stockings”

Men’s Tropical Shirt 2.0

And we’re back with the other selfless sewing project that I finished this Fall! This Tropical Shirt has been finished since October, but it quickly got chillier here, so Dallas hasn’t had a chance to wear it. Today was miraculously in the 60s, and he was very excited to wear it with shorts. I made his first Tropical Shirt in … Continue reading “Men’s Tropical Shirt 2.0”

Roscoe Dress

I’ve been doing a little bit selfless sewing lately and made this Roscoe Dress for my lovely mother-in-law while she was visiting. One of the days that she was here, we took the train to Cascais, and I had my heart set on going to the fabric store Ourotêxteis. I only had plans to get matching thread for some fabric … Continue reading “Roscoe Dress”

Sleeveless Bonn Dress

This may seem like a very unseasonal sewing project, but I finished it over a month ago and actually got to wear it a couple of times before it got too chilly. Also – huge shocker – this is the first dress that I’ve sewn for myself in over 3 years! I got a little bit burned out from making … Continue reading “Sleeveless Bonn Dress”
