Inespiration

If you have been sewing for any length of time, I am sure you will have seen some (if not all) of the beautiful clothes that Ines of La Folie Sewing Booth has made for herself and her daughters. I am so happy today to join a group of friends in showing her just how much we all love her and have been inspired by her -- Inespired!



Isn't this illustration amazing?? It was created by the incredible Toya!!

Sointu Kimono Tee by Named

The weather hasn't been very autumn-like over here, but I am definitely looking forward to it. In anticipation of the cool, crisp weather (which probably won't arrive until mid-October?!), I made myself a cozy sweater tee.

Puffed Sleeves and Pretty Dresses

One of my favorite books from my childhood is Anne of Green Gables. I was overjoyed when the mini-series by Sullivan Entertainment came out, and watched it rapturously with my sister. Everyone has their favorite Anne moments, and one of mine was when Anne revealed her love of pretty dresses. Or more specifically, puffed sleeves.

Penny Dress Around The World

Summer has taken over in our household, and I have to admit that my sewing has slowed down considerably. Which is not to say that I haven't wanted to sew. Luckily I had been invited by the amazing Bettina of Stahlarbeit to join a group of very talented women in sewing a pattern from a new-to-me designer. It's the Penny Dress from Sew Over It.

Nova Blog Tour

I know I don't have to tell you twice that my girls and I are big fans of dresses - and we are even bigger fans of Straight Grain patterns. This latest one is no exception: The Nova!

A Bridgetown Dress

You know those memes that go something like, "What I think I look like vs What I really look like"? Well, that was definitely the case when I saw these photos, hahaha. I'm definitely not a glamour gal!
