Gemma tank dress hack

After making three Gemma tanks and finally achieving a good fit, why not use the tank as base for a new dress? A simple throw on summer dress with a fitted waist. I used my size medium D cup tank bodice and extended it to almost knee length. Then I cut it a bit below […]

Three Gemmas

Way back when I first started blogging in 2010, there were a handful of notable kids sewing bloggers. Made by Rae was one blog I enjoyed reading and I used to participate in her Shirt week series every spring. Since then, she has gotten into the ladies pattern business. Washi anyone? I never did try […]

My Liesl & Co Soho shorts in Tencel

After my last post complaining about losing my sewing mojo, I suddenly found myself with the desire to sew again on Saturday afternoon. Go figure! So I finished my Soho shorts. Made of some Tencel fabric kindly sent to me by The Confident Stitch. I love the color with my KorkEase sandals and my silk […]

Photos out doors have been soft and we’ve been having a hard time timing our photo shoots since Lily […]

Olive moss green Moss skirt

Hi everyone! Today I’m using fabric from my fabric sponsor The Confident Stitch, an online shop with a brick and mortar location in lovely Missoula, Montana.  So far, I’ve been very impressed with the quality and selection! I also like that they can send little fabric swatches because I often have a hard time figuring out how […]

Striped Bento & pencil skirt

  I  made a second version of the Bento tee. I used a striped thick cotton from my stash. This fabric feels so nice. I found it at a jobber and it feels exactly like those thick knit Mariniere shirts. Almost like a ponte knit.  It’s perfect for spring. I cut a size small but […]
