New outfit for Eleanor with Birch Organic fabric!

Good day!  I have a new outfit to share along with some photos of the process 🙂 I recently got this Birch fabric from their new Circa 52 collection. It’s the Woodland Party print.  It is incredibly soft and has good stretch so I thought it would be perfect for Miss E’s new threads. (they are also giving fabric away so enter to win at the bottom of the post!) I needed a solid fabric to pair with the print and I’ve been wanting to use this beautiful blue jersey for some time...

One-piece with back snaps -Pattern 68

I am working on a collection that I will be releasing 1 at a time every week with an early bird discount 🙂 This one-piece pattern is the second in the collection after the bodysuit dress.  A friend sent me a photo of this style and I thought it was great so here it is! Like I’ve done in the past I will walk you through part of the tutorial so you can see what it takes to make. The tutorial will be more detailed but this is a good overview. Starting with...

JUKI MO-654DE Serger/Overlocker review

This will be really short and to the point but I just got a new serger and wanted to let you know I love it! It’s this Juki MO-654DE (affiliate link).  I got it on Amazon for $380. I’ve been using it for a month and have yet to run into anything I don’t like. You can use it as a 2, 3 or 4 thread seam. It’s pretty straight forward. You can see the differential feed knob on the right. As well as the stitch length.   Here’s the inside.... Read The Rest →

Janome HD-1000 vs. Janome HD-3000

I recently needed to purchase a new sewing machine so I looked on Amazon like usual.  I was looking for a really basic mechanical sewing machine. I don’t need the electronic settings or embroidery options. I ordered the Singer heavy duty to try first because it’s so cheap.  Not surprising, I hated it and sent it back. Then, I ordered the Janome HD-1000 (affiliate).  I got it and used it for a day.  I knew I didn’t like it because it didn’t have manually adjustable foot pressure. It also wobbled a bit...

Bodysuit dress sewing pattern

I’m doing a rogue release prior to the collection I’m designing right now.  This pattern has been a popular request for a while so I’m happy to say I finally got it done for you all! It’s a basic bodysuit dress with a long sleeve and short sleeve option.  I didn’t choose the typical envelope neck because the skirt adds interest and I didn’t want it to look too busy. That’s why I decided to do the single shoulder snap opening.  I love the final look and love that I can pair it with pants... Read The Rest →
