T-shirt dress mod. #58

This is my first t-shirt dress pattern modification, although it's the perfect base for many mods. I love that Brutus is in this picture :)  That's our shih-tzu.  Anyway, the mod I did here is a version I think I'll make a lot of for Eleanor.  It's so light and airy with a little funkier [...]

Super fun mod for classic hoodie #14

  I did a modification this week that I love!  Despite trying to pack my whole house up, I managed some sewing :)  I used the classic hoodie and slim harems for this outfit. The hood overlaps at the center much more than the standard plus it's lined. I also added length to the back hem and didn't add [...]

Pilot hats and pull over coveralls

    How adorable is she??  I made this one piece without any bindings and a simple pull over neckband.  So, if you are one of those that won't do binding then this is for you :) The hat patterns are long overdue. They are such staples that I adore and I'm so happy to use them [...]

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. [...]

Ice cream pants with baggy tee

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 [...]

Basic a-line dress for every occasion

A good basic dress will always be necessary in Eleanor's wardrobe. I like something casual and cute without being over the top girly. This one hits all the notes! It is purposefully simple for a clean look. (I favor a clean look on most everything) Take a peek at the tutorial below and give it [...]

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. 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 [...]
