The pattern I used for the top is McCalls 7630. I went with View F and I cut the size 14! This is a great top with lots of other options on the pattern. I will definitely make this view again. It came together really fast, it has no closures, and I think it'll be great top for spring!Read More
I always create a single garment at a time. When I see a new pattern, or inspiration on social, I make it and then move on to the next project. This process allowed me to think of more pieces that would work well in my closet, everyday life and coordinate together! I thought more of "what do I need/want", rather than "that's cute". With that thought process, I narrowed it down to 4 pieces. A dress, a top, a jacket, and a bottom. Today I'm sharing my first piece, the dress.Read More
One of the things thats basically been nagging me since I started blogging, is the fact that I sew weekly for me and absolutely nothing for my daughter!! I love seeing mommy and me looks! One of my favorite makers that nail it every time is Nikki of BeauteJaDore! Her mommy and me looks have and continue to inspire me to want to create more for my daughter!Read More
I really enjoyed making this dress! The instructions were easy to follow along with, and it came together great! If you can install a zipper, and facings then you can definitely make this dress! For fabric, I used Cotton Lyrca from The Fabric Store! I love this fabric! Its a great stable knit, with awesome recovery!Read More
