I made this little romper the other day, thinking that I’d give it to a friend who is having a baby boy. Throughout the process, I wondered if it’s a little too feminine looking. I sewed up a size Medium, which is about a 12 month, though it fits Jude pretty well- at 19 months. … Continue reading Plaid romper- too girly?
I’ve seen a lot of peplum tops and dresses around. There are even skirts, shorts, jackets. I don’t know what I think about the trend. I was born in the 80s and I know that these peplum things came straight out of that era. Some fashions just shouldn’t be given a new life… like hammer … Continue reading To Peplum or not to Peplum…
I made a simple, but cute little baby dress to give to a friend who just had a baby girl. I just made a simple A-line pattern with a little extra fabric in the bodice to pleat the front and gather the back. The fabric is from my mom’s stash and I love the subtlety. … Continue reading Watercolor dress
I happen upon a lot of fun sewing competitions in blog-land. I also watch a lot of Project Runway (probably my favorite show), and I love to see what people come up with using a bit of fabric. I noticed this happening now: a linky party/ competition based on the Coffee Date dress from the … Continue reading My new dress

I’d love to make … Continue reading I’m on etsy!

A few months ago, the last time we went on vacation, my sisters and I threw a baby shower for one… and this time we … Continue reading Seersucker Suit
Update: For the free t-shirt polo tutorial, go here! We are heading out of town for a couple of weeks, but I wanted to get the pattern pieces for the T-shirt polo posted before taking off. I don’t have a tutorial just yet, and I probably won’t until I get back home, but feel free … Continue reading T-shirt polo pattern
I made this skirt a while ago and didn’t know if I really liked it at first. I have an old super soft skirt, which I love, that I patterned it after. I used different fabric, though, and did a few other things differently, like buttons for the closure. You know how much I dislike … Continue reading Twirly skirt
Liam’s cute friend, Avery, turned 4 last week. Liam wanted to give her a present. He loves to help me make cookies and do chores while wearing his apron and thought that Avery needed an apron as well. So, I made a cute, girly, ruffley apron for a sweet little girl. I love the ruffles … Continue reading Birthday apron
The babies don’t really NEED any more clothes, but it’s kind of addicting making cute new things for them. I saw this orange fabric on the clearance stack at Craft Warehouse ($2.50/ yd!) and couldn’t pass up getting a yard of it. I think it makes perfectly cute little kid shorts. I believe I will … Continue reading Orange shorts
