A Lark Dress for Me
I am fully into planning and now sewing up my spring/summer capsule wardrobe. Navy is my dark neutral of choice for summer because it feels more summery than my beloved black and charcoal grays. As part of my minimalist, mix and match, capsuling efforts I t...

A Boho Chic Easter Dress
I knew I'd sew along to at least one of the Project Run and Play themes, but the question is, would Elena model for me? And that'll be a big fat NO. It was an almost - she had everything on and then in the 2 minutes it took me to run upstairs for different ...

Chambray Ansley Tunic with Embroidery
This is my third and final outfit for Elena for this fall. The tunic is a modified Ansley top from Blaverry Patterns . I lowered the neckline half an inch, added a tie-back belt, and put elastic in the sleeves instead of cuffs. I think I changed the hi/low ...

Plaid "Poncho" Not a Poncho
I'm back to sewing for me and it feels great! I'm actually wearing all me-made here. The jeans were made last year and can be seen here . Today, I want to show you my new poncho- not a poncho, and a Plaintain T, modified.  Poncho's are comfy and awesome, bu...
