Jalie Clara Leggings & Adele Flutter Sleeve Tunic

Happy Father's Day! I suppose it would be most appropriate to show the AMAZING things I made for my husband for Father's Day, right? Well, wife of the year here folks.

Jalie Magic Tee & Pencil Skirt

Phew, it has been a whirlwind week here! (Or perhaps a whirlwind few months if I'm truly honest with myself.)

Spring Into Color! A Sewing by Ti Blog Tour

This month's Sewing By Ti blog tour theme is inspired by the 2018 Pantone Spring color forecast. I'm not one to be particularly observant about color trends, nor do I tend to dress to them. And for this tour, I almost decided to disregard the tour brief entirely and just do my own spring inspired… Continue reading Spring Into Color! A Sewing by Ti Blog Tour
