Mira Dress – Repurposed

Some of you may recognize this Mira Dress from a few years ago. I made it over 3 years ago when I was pregnant with my daughter. I love this fabric SO much, but there was just something about the dress that was really bothering me, so I didn’t reach for it very often. Since I only brought a handful … Continue reading “Mira Dress – Repurposed”

Nusch Blouse

After getting used to using translating apps and beginning to learn a new language, sewing a pattern entirely in French sounded like a challenge I was ready for (even if that is not the language I’m learning). This is the Nusch Blouse (sizes from 86-100cm hip) by Bertina Paris. It’s an absolutely gorgeous pattern, but the sizing isn’t inclusive. I … Continue reading “Nusch Blouse”

EA Saturday Shorts

This is my second time making the EA Saturday Shorts (sizes from 34.5-59.5″ hip) and I was very excited to make a couple of changes to make them fit better.

We moved to Portugal!

We have been researching and planning this move for over a year now, and it feels very surreal to be here now. Before we left, we rented out our house, put everything into storage, drove to Utah to visit family, … Continue reading “We moved to Portugal!”

Double Gauze Esme Cardigan

I’ve been wanting to make a cardigan like this since the day Treasure posted this photo in 2020. I have seriously had it saved that long, and have just been agonizing over what fabric and pattern to use. So ridiculous. And before I continue, Treasure is the most amazing person and bag maker with the best style. She’s been growing … Continue reading “Double Gauze Esme Cardigan”

Archer Shirt

After years and years of seeing so many amazing Archer shirts made my other sewists, I have finally made my own! This is a very popular pattern in the sewing community because it’s such a great classic tailored shirt. The pattern is by Grainline Studio and has sizes ranging from 35-61″ hip. I have a really cool RTW button up … Continue reading “Archer Shirt”

Cropped Black Marlo Sweater

I had to make one last winter garment before diving into my spring makes, and this Marlo Sweater was it! I’ve made the Marlo Sweater by True Bias 3 times for myself and 2 times for other people. That’s how much I love it. I was so inspired by others’ cropped black cardigans, and I decided that it would be … Continue reading “Cropped Black Marlo Sweater”
