Adding a Circular Detail to a Knit Dress - Tutorial

Wednesday, September 10, 2014

I made this dress a while ago for the series hosted by  Hayley of Mouse House Creations and Celina of Petit a Petit and Family. I still love the dress and wear it often, it is also one of my most viewed posts. I had quite a few requests for the tutorial of the circular insert. Yesterday, I was making a pair of pjs for my daughter and thought it would be a perfect opportunity for me to do the tutorial.

Mulberry Tunic Remix

Monday, August 25, 2014

I originally made this to join in the fun during the Willow & Co contests, but since it fits the theme perfectly this week at Project Run and Play, I am linking it up there as well.  I used my pattern, the Mulberry tunic, to make a dress for the youngest child a while ago. So I thought I would make one for Ania as well, but of course make it a bit different.

Bundle Up Boys Pattern Tour

Friday, August 22, 2014

I am super excited to be one of the bloggers to showcase a new boys pattern bundle collection. It seriously consists of the coolest boy patterns ever. There are so many awesome patterns in the bundle, I had the hardest time selecting the pattern I wanted to showcase, ultimately choosing Zander's Hoodie by EYMM for the main pattern and Field Research pants by Scientific Seamstress to compliment the hoodie. I fell in love with the hoodie as soon as I saw the picture. I wanted to make an asymmetrical zipper sweatshirt for a while now, so the Zander's Hoodie pattern was perfect.

The Bubble Shorts

Wednesday, August 20, 2014

How is your summer going? I think I might be living in complete denial, I just don't want it to end. Last winter was so brutal that I still haven't recovered. Unlike most people, I love hot weather. I also don't want to do any fall/winter sewing yet. Can't face the reality. :) Instead, I am making shorts, because if I make shorts, summer will stay forever. Right? I cut the shorts last summer, but never finished them. I can't handle the unfinished projects, super glad they are done.

The Sewing Contest at Willow & Co

We have been super busy at Willow & Co making all the neccessary preparations for the sewing contest. I can't wait what everybody makes!

The Maxi Dress

Monday, July 28, 2014

I had wanted to make a maxi dress since the beginning of summer. A while ago I picked up a McCall's M6074 pattern at Joann's during their $1.99 sale. I also found a nice quality remnant at my favorite local fabric warehouse. I thought I was all set. Turns out, nope, not so much. The pattern required almost 4 yards of fabric, I had about half of that. A reasonable person would buy new fabric, but I decided to make it work.
