May / June 2019 Recap

I’m back for round three of my bi-monthly recaps! I did a little better sewing up stash fabrics in May/June than I did in March/April, but still not quite as good as in January/February. I still participated in quite a bit of collaboration sewing again over this 2-month period, but I am so happy to say that I haven’t purchased any fabric since my IndieSew purchase in February / March! I’m really enjoying getting to make up some of my fabrics into garments I’ve had in my brain for awhile, and shopping my stash when I want to try a new pattern. This was a bottom heavy couple of months, with skirts / pants / shorts making a big bang in my handmade wardrobe. Without any further delay, here’s my makes!!…

March / April 2019 Recap

Time for another Recap post! This two month interval was filled with collaborations – and for this reason, I didn’t sew much from my stash. I was thrilled to be asked to participate in the Style Maker Fabrics Spring blog tour, as well as another collaboration with Pine Crest Fabrics, AND a new pattern promotion with Deer and Doe! All of this on top of my planned quarterly make with Stylish Fabrics meant I didn’t have a lot of time or wiggle room for additional projects, but it did give me the opportunity to really think out each of these collaborations and actually come up with a really great combination of makes! See all the things I came up with in March and April 🙂

PineCrest Fabrics – Activewear Set Volume 2!

When PineCrest Fabrics reached out to me about working with some of their new fabrics, I was so excited to say yes. Of course! I was lucky enough to work with their Olympus Knit fabrics when I was pregnant, and I was so impressed with the quality of their product. I thought that it would be exciting to mark 6 months with this new collaboration – a fun milestone to work around, especially since the last post I’d done with them was about how I worked out while pregnant. I figured that today, I’d be able to tell you guys what it is like working out (and wearing handmade workout wear) with a little one, and how I was able to get back into shape after having a baby. This is NOT that post…
