Coffee + Thread Fall Blog Tour 2020

Hello! I am so excited about his post today! I was asked a month or so back to take part in the Coffee + Thread Fall Blog Tour, and I was truly so excited. Olga had asked a couple of years ago if I would like to be a part of the Madrid Dress Blog Tour, but unfortunately my schedule just wouldn’t allow for it at the time. I was pretty bummed, but I LOVED seeing all the beautiful dresses that were showcased as part of the tour. When another chance came around to participate, you can bet I was jumping on board!

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!
