LadyBossBlogger Course – Is It Worth It? (+ Giveaway!)

When I first started sharing my me-made garments on Instagram, I never imagined that I would eventually start a blog or even consider monetizing any of my work. I simply wanted a little corner of the world dedicated to the clothing that I have sewn, where I could dive into conversations with fellow sewists. But as time went on, I started to wonder if there was a way to use what I was already doing to make a little money to supplement the costs I encounter along the way… And now I am halfway through the LadyBossBlogger “Make Money as an Influencer” course online, and learning SO MUCH. I’m sharing my initial thoughts today, as well as a link for 40% off of courses and a GIVEAWAY for a free course for yourself!!!!!!

May Monthly Make My Stash – Phoenix Blouse

May was a low month for my sewjo! My husband and I painted and moved some rooms around in our house, leaving my sewing space disassembled and inaccessible.The little time I did spend sewing was mostly dedicated to re-building and re-decorating my fresh, new sewing room and sewing facial masks for my husband to wear when he ran our family errands.

AK Patterns – Brittany Skirt

Athina of AK Patterns came back from a hiatus and hit the ground running by releasing the Brittany Skirt last week – a new skirt pattern that is perfectly on trend for your Spring and Summer wardrobe needs!! The Brittany Skirt rides the line between your standard, gathered skirt and the dungaree / bibs / overall trend that has taken over this year. The over the shoulder straps add a fun touch that really takes this classic style to another level! I participated in the Tester Group for this pattern back in the fall, and I’m so happy to finally share it with you today!

April Monthly Make My Stash – Fiesta Flora Dress

Happy almost-end-of-April!! Before the month comes to a close, here’s my April edition of Monthly Make My Stash 2020. This fabric was always meant to be a Flora dress, but as with many of the projects I’ve prioritized this year, just got pushed back over and over and over again! I’m so glad that I not only finally got around to sewing this fabric into something wearable, but also that I stuck to my original plan – it is the perfect match!
