My September “Make My Stash” fabric choice was a really beautiful cut of soft, warm sand colored knit with just a hint of gold metallic thread woven throughout. I purchased this from Measure Fabric in 2021, always thinking it would make the perfect “secret pajamas” wedding guest dress, but I didn’t have a particular pattern in mind at the time. Nor was I in need of a wedding guest dress! So of course, onto the shelf it went to wait. When we learned a friend of ours would be getting married in October, I put this on my make my stash sew list right away!

ery year of my girl’s life, I’ve made her a special outfit to celebrate her birthday in. The first two years were pretty dresses. Her third birthday fell just shortly after her Tio’s wedding, so we decided that she’d wear the pretty dress we made for the rehearsal for her birthday party to keep up the pretty dress tradition. But this year, my girl was old enough to make a special request of her own for an outfit.
I picked out this beautiful, cream lurex sweater knit with ideas of an oversized comfy cardigan that I could wear at home throughout my 12-week maternity leave. I couldn’t decide between my go-to cardigan pattern, the Helen’s Closet Blackwood Cardigan, or trying out a new pattern in the form of the True Bias Marlo. So naturally, as I decided between those two… I settled on a two piece lounge set that has nothing to do with cardigans! Classic.
Ever since I had the opportunity to travel through Italy and Spain, I’ve loved olive leaves. In person, Olive Trees are so beautiful – the colors are unusual and catch my eye every time, and the leaves are so small and dainty. When I saw this olive leaf print from Art Gallery Fabrics, I knew I wanted it in my wardrobe. The color palette is so pretty – though I’ve still not been quite able to figure out my own personal color palette, I do always find that I feel great about the way greens look on me, and I find myself drawn to them. This print has a great balance of bright and muted tones, and I feel like it is lovely for summer.
