And then it was Pajama Day, Every Day.

Just in time for Christmas, I made pajamas for my kids - because that is what us sewists are supposed to do at Christmas time, yes? ;-). And then, because my kids insisted on wearing them immediately and I failed to photograph them, they of course: wet the bed the first night, spilled breakfast on… Continue reading And then it was Pajama Day, Every Day.

Magic Portal Biker Sweatshirt

Some fun sews for Mr. Model this week! When I found out MK*Designs was sending me a "portal" panel set of Donald Duck, I thought the (aff) MW Patterns Biker Sweatshirt would be a perfect complement for it.

Snow White Costume (Simplicity 2817)

When it comes to mending and fixing things, I am a huge procrastinator. I just hate to do it! I'd much rather just make something new than fix (or upcycle) something that I have. I know I'm not alone! So, this dress is kinda like that. I had intended for my daughter to be Snow… Continue reading Snow White Costume (Simplicity 2817)

Rapunzel Dress (Simplicity 2065)

(Originally published on BurdaStyle 12/10/2015) My daughter is obsessed with Rapunzel so I decided I would make the Simplicity Rapunzel dress (2065) for her birthday. A month after her birthday, I finally decided to go back to working on it. Honestly, this dress was a bit of a hot mess. The instructions were quite lacking,… Continue reading Rapunzel Dress (Simplicity 2065)

Elsa Costume (Simplicity 1233)

(Originally published on BurdaStyle on 10/18/2015) My almost 4 year old desperately wanted a princess dress, and since I already had this pattern, decided I would cave in and let her join the throngs of Elsa’s this Halloween. I know it will get very good mileage as she wears a costume almost every day! Even… Continue reading Elsa Costume (Simplicity 1233)
