Happy Birthday Katy! {and my Lille Dress}

I know I have been insanely quiet around here, so much has been going on, I just haven’t had time to post (and frankly my computer has pretty much not been unpacked in weeks.) We have left Korea, fit in a Hawaiian vacation as a stop over on our way to the US, and spending…

Emmie’s New Coat

So I wish I was kidding, but I literally started this project January of 2014. (as my instagram account can attest) Thankfully I made it too big for Emmie, because it still fits her well, especially considering how much she has grown this year. I got it 80% done, but then ran out of steam…

    Hello! Are you so excited about it being 2015? I am looking forward to so much of what’s ahead, but before I get too far ahead of myself, I thought I would look back at my resolutions from last year and give myself a grade for how well I did! Since there is…

Sweet Sarah Apron Flower

      Have you seen the awesome Birthday Giveaway, and free apron pattern? If not I hope you will take a second to go and enter the giveaway! Today I am showing you how I made the flower for the Sweet Sarah Apron, it’s a pretty simple embellishment, but I think it adds something…

Sarah’s Maxi Dress

Remember when I showed pictures of us at the beach and said that Sarah had let me take some pictures of the dress we made her? Here are the pictures of the dress we made her! We used Butterick B5763 to make the dress, altering only the sleeves, the length, and the fabric choice. (She…
