Easy, Breezy Winslow Culottes with Stylish Fabric

When this fabric first caught my eye, I immediately pictured big, wide leg palazzo pants, flowing in the breeze while I sat poolside with a drink in my hand at an all-inclusive beach resort.

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.

See all the things I came up with in March and April 🙂

Anna Maxi Skirt – Pinspiration Realized (Volume 2)

This skirt is a long time coming, guys. When I finally made my mind up to recreate a skirt that I’d long loved on my Pinterest boards, the Anna Dress came to mind immediately. I scoured Instagram and blogs looking to see if anyone had made a skirt version, and I surprisingly could not find one anywhere! Why aren’t more of us using this absolutely gorgeous pattern to make incredible maxi skirts??? See how I brought pinspiration to life with the Anna pattern here!
