Deeeeeeeeep breath.  OH BOY.  I am about to post pictures of myself in a swimsuit on the internet.  What is happening?!  **disclaimer: this post contains affiliate links.  And pictures of me in a bathing suit.  You can walk away now if you want to save yourself....

Jerry’s Raglan Shirt by Coles Creations

Before you go all "poor neglected Bennett" on me, I need to tell you that I've sewn a few shirts for him recently...they just haven't all been photographed and put on the blog.  Most of my sews are for pattern releases and blog tours so I tend to photograph all of...

Blair + Mama Blair by Made for Mermaids

Woohoo!  Another Made for Mermaids release day is here.  And it's a darling pattern, as usual.  I was a lucky duck that got to test out both this time around...the Blair AND the Mama Blair.  I borrowed my adorable niece, Annie, for photos and she got a sweet top with...

Patterns for Pirates is releasing a new pattern today.  And it's pretty sweet.  (I totally went there.) **Before I get down to it, I'd like to add that I took these photos when I had just come down with strep throat.  And I was practically dying.  (cue the dramatic...

Patterns for Pirates' first, and one of the most popular, women's patterns is getting an update and it's releasing today!  The Pumpkin Spice Dolman  has a loose fitting dolman sleeve (aka a "batwing"), with a fitted lower sleeve.  Nothing changed on that end, we just...

Leggings + Boozy Coffee

Leggings + Boozy Coffee

Did I sell it on the title?  Or just make it seem like I've gone off the deep end?  Either way works for me, I suppose.  I couldn't figure out what to call this post so I thought I'd just break it down to the basics.  Leggings.  Coffee with booze in it.  Bam. Mabel...

Mama Mya Top by Made for Mermaids

Eep!  I got to test my first ever Made for Mermaids pattern!  I've only been drooling over all of her designs forever now, but seeing as how I don't think dresses really fit into Louis' wardrobe scheme, I've just been left to admire from afar. M4M is releasing their...
