FREE Pattern: Mood Bomber Jacket Review

Today I’m going on a new sewing adventure, a reversible jacket. Magnolia floral liverpool is our Thrifty Thursday print, so I decided to make a bomber jacket with it using a thrifty FREE pattern, the Reversible Mood Bomber Jacket. Here are my thoughts, additions and full review!

The Industry’s Best Leggings Pattern, and the Jacket that Almost Killed Me

This last week, I got the opportunity to sew with some new-to-me athletic fabric bases, tencel and tricot. So I will preface by saying that both of these fabrics are incredible, and I only wish I knew about them sooner because they are perfect for summer! However, that green jacket (McCalls #m7199) was just about the death of me!

One Can Never Have too Many Rompers!

Hi friends! I’m excited to share with you today a gorgeous new pattern! I was given the opportunity to review a new women’s romper pattern, the Stevie Jumpsuit that DIBY released a couple weeks ago. I jumped at the opportunity because I absolutely love rompers! Jessica designed this pattern chalk-full of options, but I just…

RTW Recreation: Athletic Set and Ruched Tank Hack

I really love when an athletic outfit comes together so perfectly, that you feel like an Athleta ad 🤣 I think it’s because of the white shorts honestly, not something I would typically buy but I was totally excited about making them for myself! The tank I hacked, and it is such a simple hack…

The Tool I Never Knew I needed

I’ve been a Cricut user since they were founded, all the way back to the mini personal machine. I seen the evolution of their technology, and wow has it come a long way! So when they came out with the most recent machine, the Maker, I wasn’t 100% sold on whether or not I needed…

Bodies change, but thank goodness for good running gear

As Struggle-town as I felt running, having fantastic athletic gear does encourage me to work out! I’m pretty excited to go running again just knowing that I have something so cute and comfortable to wear. Guys and gals, it’s the little things LOL!

Power Bra Flounce Swimsuit Hack!

I mentioned this when I posed on Facebook, but this was definitely my most difficult and rewarding hacks to date!I was super excited about creating an off the shoulder flounce for a swimsuit to really highlight the fun Magic print on this fabric from Black Sheep Fabrics. Sewing was swim is definitely one of the…

Baby boy is ONE!

Every mom everywhere will probably say the same thing, but I feel like I just found out that I was pregnant with my little guy and he is now officially one year old! Some people call that toddler age? I refuse to admit that he’s a toddler though! He’s my baby, and he’s probably going to stay “my baby” until he’s in his 20s 😂, and probably after that! But you better believe for his first birthday I had to DIY all the things! So here’s a few photos of the small party we threw at the park for him and close family.

Mommy and Me Outfits for Life!

If you know me, and have seen my sewing, you know it pretty well that if I have enough fabric to make a mommy and me outfit, then I definitely will! Not only can you not find really cute mommy and son outfits in ready-to-wear, but it’s so much more fun when I get to make styles that we both love in fabrics that coordinate!

My First Capsule Wardrobe

I’ve officially started my very first capsule wardrobe!! I can’t tell you how much time I spent using the Amelia Lane Capsule Wardrobe Builder worksheet to try and plan out what I was going to make. I think it took me so long because I bought the fabrics before I decided to make a capsule, so working them into a coherent collection that could mix and match was MUCH harder than it would have been otherwise!
