Are you really a sewist if you aren’t frantically sewing up new me-made garments the week before your trip? Yeah, I didn’t think so. My priority for this trip was to create a few looks that would make me feel put together while still being comfortable enough for travel, and warm enough to be outdoors. I purchased the I AM Patterns Lion and Zebre set over the Black Friday weekend, and I knew these would both be perfect for my travel plans. Comfy cozy sweatshirts? Check. Special details that made them just a little extra? Check. (Here’s where you “check” it out on the blog!)
At the start of 2019, pants were still a super daunting sewing endeavor in my mind. It just seemed like so much more work to fit flat fabric to the curves of my hips, waist and bum than it did to sew a dress or top that could flow over my shape. However, I really pushed out of my comfort zone and sewed quite a few pairs of pants last year! These are my fanciest pants of 2019, which I love even more now than when I first made them. Check out the great fabric!!
It’s my first blog post of 2020! I’m starting the year off comfortable, sharing a simple tee with some elevated details, sewn up in possibly the best fabric I’ve ever purchased. Even better – it’s a Wacky Wednesday post, which means if you like this tee, you can nab the pattern today for just $1! The photos in this post were taken on my sister-in-law’s family olive orchard in Spain, and I’m excited to share the first of my photos from our trip to Spain on the blog, as well!
Merry Christmas! I’m sharing my first ever set of me-made family Christmas jammies on the blog today! Christmas jammies is one of my favorite holiday traditions, and it was so special to share it with my husband and tiny girl this year! I’ve got all the details on our matching set (hint – there are SLOTHS) as well as some pretty stinking cute photos. Whether you are reading this today or sometime after, I hope you all enjoy a fantastic and peaceful day with those you love!
