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.
Happy SewMyStyle Reveal Sunday! I’m thrilled to be revealing my new beautiful Phoenix Blouse, a silhouette that I needed in my closet. I had the pleasure of sewing up this version in this CRAZY great cotton from Fibers to Fabric, and I was not disappointed! Come check it out this morning!
My blog post about this adorable sloth romper is live over on Minerva Crafts today! I still can’t get over how much I love this fabric. It features sweet, sleepy little sloths that CHANGE COLOR in the sunlight!

It’s RECAP time! I sewed up SIX stash fabrics over the last two months, which I’m super happy about! My July sewing seemed a little slow, as I started my first ever pair of jeans about halfway through, but once I powered through that awesome project I was very productive throughout August! I had the luxury of taking some time off around my birthday, and just sit in my sewing room for an entire day and make stuff, which I haven’t done in many many months. It felt so great, and was the perfect birthday gift to myself. I also brought you guys in on the birthday fun by hosting a pretty awesome giveaway!! It was a super great couple of months, and here’s the outcome:
