I can't believe this is my first pencil skirt! What have I been doing for 4 years?!!! Pencil skirts are one of my favorites styles of skirts. They are perfect and suitable for just about everything. For my first skirt I decide to try Butterick 5466. This skirt has instantly become my go-to pencil skirt pattern!Read More
Hey hey hey, Happy Wednesday! My summer top making days are coming to an end today! I set out this summer to make some easy tops that I could wear during the season and I'm so happy with everything I made. From tie front tops, tie strap tops, ruffle tops, I definitely added some good ones to my closet! Todays top is no different but before we dive into it, you know I have to share back story first!Read More
Hey everybody! Happy Monday! I hope you had a great weekend! I really enjoyed mine! I took time to relax and also to plan out a couple projects/videos I want to do soon! Last week, on Instagram I shared some projects as I was sewing and finishing them! I'm so proud of my work last week, and I'm excited to create and share more this week! First up is this super easy summer top using New Look 6511.Read More

Hey everybody! Happy Wednesday! Today, I wanted to take a moment and shine light on an amazing fabric company and their fabrics that I've been creating with lately. I just received some new fabrics Monday, so this is the perfect time to share them, my previous makes, upcoming makes, projects ideas....its a lot, lol, so lets just get right into it!
First thing first, Measure is not your typical fabric store. They are a boutique style fabric shop with a curated collection geared to their customer needs. They have an assortment of leathers, upholstery, quilting, apparel fabrics and so much more. I've created using one of their Pique knits, and two of their shirting fabrics, and they are so amazing! Beautiful fabrics to work with.
The first look I made was this New Look Jumpsuit using their Aztec Pique Knit. I love this jumpsuit! Its definitely one of my favorite jumpsuits I've made! It feels great and the fabric really gives it a retro vibe to me!
All done, but not yet photographed (blame the rain) is this black and white dress I made using this Graphic Abstract Shirting and Butterick 6552. I honestly didn't know what I was going to make with this piece of fabric, but looking through my stash I came across this pattern, and View A told me it was meant to me! The fabric looked exactly like mine! I had to make it! The fabric is really the star of this dress and the loop and ties in the front, only makes it better!
With the fabrics I just received, I don't have it all worked out yet, but I know this amazing Double-faced Woven Striped Novelty Tweed is going to be a jacket! I don't have any showstopper, wow jackets in my closet and I think this fabric will be perfect for it! I can already see it paired with a cami, skinny jeans, and heels! Its gonna be fabulous! And if for some reason, its not.....high waisted pencil skirt is option B! LOL!
This beautiful Golden Flower Challis is destined to be a dress. I don't have the pattern picked out yet, but when I do, I'll share my idea on Instagram so make sure to follow if you don't already!
The last piece or should I say pieces, I have are Soft Lambskin in the color Dark Peach! Y'all, I've never worked with lambskin but WOW, its so soft and beautiful! I'm really excited to create with this and I can totally see this as a sleeveless moto jacket!! Its going to be amazing! I can't wait!!
Well, thats all for the fabrics I've used and upcoming fabrics I'll be using from Measure. If you are local or traveling through Savannah, Ga., be sure to pop in! Also because the ladies over there are so amazing, they are giving you, my awesome readers a promo code for Free Shipping off your first order! Happy Shopping!
Thanks so much for stopping by today! Until next time...
Hey everybody! Hope all is well! I feel like I've said this before but tops are something that my closet lacks a lot of. I found myself this summer trying to whip up a couple easy to sew ones, and I'm happy to report, I did! I made a couple tie front tops, a few crop tops, a wrap top, and an unexpected wearable muslin tie strap top! During all that top sewing, one pattern was on repeat and I made 2 of them....today makes number 3! LOLRead More
Hey everybody! Happy Monday! I just made it back in town last night from traveling home for the weekend, and I'm so excited to share this amazing new podcast with you! When I say I'm obsessed, I'M OBSESSED! I truly feel this is going to be a game changer for me because if I'm being honest (and y'all know I always am), I feel extremely stuck! As much as I know I have to drown out the noise, and focus on my own growth, it can be a little overwhelming at times.Read More
Hey everybody! I'm so happy its Friday! I've had a slow couple weeks of sewing with family being in town visiting, but now that everybody's gone back home, I plan to cut, sew and repeat all weekend long! I started on some wide leg linen pants yesterday that I can't wait to finish up and share! Todays look is all about my new jumpsuit I made using denim (Vice Versa) from Art Gallery Fabrics, so lets get into it!Read More
Hey everybody! Happy Thursday! I'm so pumped and excited to share this look with you! I've been keeping this project to myself for weeks, only showing a couple sneak peeks on social but today is the day!! I can't tell you all how excited I was when Mathew Boudreaux of Mister Domestic asked me to join in on his Blog Party for his Loved to Pieces Fabric Collection with Art Gallery Fabrics!Read More
