Daughter Judy – Genra Shirt

I think this just might be one of the coolest things that I’ve ever made. I found this fabric on the Divazus website a few months ago when I was looking for unique animal prints. I fell in love with this large Panther print right away. I thought it was really cool but also…borderline terrifying. The coolness outweighed the terrifying, … Continue reading “Daughter Judy – Genra Shirt”

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”

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”

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”

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”
