My Little Mermaid

Though I haven't been able to make much time to sew lately, I was very motivated to make my two-year-old daughter a mermaid costume for Halloween this year. I can't remember now whether the idea for the mermaid costume came from her or me. But, as soon as it was out there, I couldn't let it go. I found myself excitedly scouring Mood Fabrics… Continue reading My Little Mermaid

A Hello and a Goodbye: Gray Chevron Elephant Baby Blanket

Hello again! It seems all I needed to do to get my little one to decide she was okay sleeping on her own - at least at the beginning of the night - was to tell the internet that she wouldn't let me have any time to myself.

At the time I… Continue reading Battling a Pregnancy-Induced Sewing Slump with a Gold Linen Skirt

My husband and I are in a race to see which will come first - the new baby or the finished kitchen.… Continue reading Lessons Learned Working with a Border Print

An A-Line Skirt in an Oscar de la Renta Woven

I know for a fact that my first finished garment of 2016 is going to become a very well-loved skirt, but making it was a lesson in how I should always get used to a new-to-me fabric by practicing techniques on scraps before venturing into the real deal. A lesson that, of course, I didn't… Continue reading An A-Line Skirt in an Oscar de la Renta Woven
