Mod collar tee and circle skirt

This shirt design took some time to get right, it was a little frustrating but I had a LOT of fun with the mixing and matching fabrics along the way!  Love the curves and piping detail:) Eleanor likes it too. Don't mind the expression, looks like she's trying to sell you the lotion or something, Lol. [...]

I don't know why but I feel like 'ice cream pants' is the perfect name for these! The curves remind me of ice cream dripping or something.  Idk, maybe I'm just a little crazy. Either way, the pants are ripe for customization!  Mixing and matching with these pants is so fun and crazy cute. You can see [...]

My of-the-moment pattern! Pocket puff pants

I seem to have a new clothing style obsession every other day but hey, nothing wrong with that!  Keeps things interesting. This pant style has been in my head for a while, ever since I saw them in a store some where.  It would be so much easier if I didn't make patterns and I [...]

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.

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 [...]
