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!
When I first saw the Roscoe Blouse, I didn’t think I needed it in my wardrobe. It was super cute, but quite honestly when I first started sewing all I wanted to do was make pretty party dresses! The Roscoe got forgotten until recently, when I realized that it holds quite a few similarities to the most well-loved (and overused) top in my wardrobe. I finally purchased the pattern recently, and I am SO glad that I did. (PS – the pattern was just recently re-released in a more inclusive size range! If you don’t have it yet, read on and see why I think you should definitely grab it! I’ve linked the pattern at the bottom!)
I’ve got another blog post live over at Minerva today! I am very excited to share this one with you guys – I made this Jarrah Sweatshirt back in the sweltering Texas summer, but now that it has started to cool down it has really proven to be a great piece in my wardrobe!
I’m a pretty selfish sewist. My time is limited, and I prefer to spend the vast majority of my sewing time making garments for myself! In the past, I’ve sewn an item or two for my husband and a couple of things for my sister and my sister-in-law. However, since our tiny girl arrived, I’ve really enjoyed sewing a little something up for her every now and then, especially when it means that we can twin. My husband recently lamented that while I’ve taken advantage of mama / mini twinning, he has yet to have the pleasure of matching with her. I’d already planned out matching dresses for Monkey and I to wear for her birthday, so I decided I’d do something nice and add a daddy piece into the mix.
