Mommy & Me for Fabric Mart

I'm back on the Fabric Mart blog today with a couple of outfits for me and my girls, all using some pretty Italian designer crepe! I ventured out of my pattern comfort zone too, and finally tried my hand at a True/Bias pattern! I used the Roscoe Dress for me, and since I had so… Continue reading Mommy & Me for Fabric Mart

Polkadot Periwinkle Dress & Top for Minerva

A few months ago, Minerva sent me some gorgeous Lady McElroy Viscose Jersey in this fantastic bright pink with black polkadot print. I knew it would make a perfect big swishy dress for my eldest, but then after it arrived, she decided she hated it. Black polkadots, apparently, were not acceptable. Anyways, after I offered… Continue reading Polkadot Periwinkle Dress & Top for Minerva

Jennuine Design Limone Lounge Set {Pattern Release}

I had the opportunity a month or two ago to test these fabulous shorts from Jennuine Design!

Ivy & Marigold + Aboriginal Art

In my last post, I shared how I took a trip to Artistic Artifacts to get some Tilda fabric. I should probably amend that to say I actually first decided to go because I realized they had Australian Aboriginal fabric *and then* realized they had Tilda too! Knowing that I was about to sew up… Continue reading Ivy & Marigold + Aboriginal Art
