One for Mama, Two for Baby Girl

Heeey guys!  Today I’m sharing a versatile make for myself, and a sweet little set for the wee lass that we’re still waiting to meet.  Let’s start with my look!

This is Deer & Doe’s Aubepine, or as I discovered via Google Translator means Hawthorn in English.  Also very important: IT HAS POCKETS! Continue reading “One for Mama, Two for Baby Girl”

Throwback Thursday: Simplicity 2369

Been a few weeks, but here we are with more THROWBACK THURSDAY!  Today is a pattern I love and have made twice (but haven’t blogged until now).  I always think about making more, but then get distracted by another new pretty pattern.

Anywho, here it is:  Simplicity 2369

Throwback Thursday: Jasper Surprise!

Welcome to Throwback Thursday! Today we’re talking sweater dress with a surprise:

Pattern:  Paprika Patterns’ Jasper, which I was lucky enough to obtain from a Perfect Pattern Parcel.  (Remember those?  So awesome!  I still regret not buying the boys one…it had the Knight Hoodie in it!  Alas, I did not know I’d have a boy then…)

Completed:  January 2016 (I only remember this because I got it done the day before, maybe day of, my cousin’s baby shower!)

I decided not to wear makeup (OK, fine, I put a little lip gloss on…) for this blog post, but I did brush my hair.  :P  I don’t wear makeup on a daily basis, so I find the prettifying process the biggest hindrance I face (ha!) when it comes to actually getting photos of my makes taken.  I decided to not give a f*ck for today’s post!  :)  Shout out to breastfeeding for the nice skin.  I’m scared to quit you.

The Wonderfully Weirdass Dress

The moment I saw this pattern, I knew I had to have it…it was just a little different.  OK, actually it’s so damn weird, and I LOVE IT.

This is Butterick 6241, view C.  The piece de resistance from the February Retreat.  I’ve shared some pretty basic makes so far, so thought I would throw this slightly more complicated monster into the mix next.  Rawr!

Jalie 3245 Tunics

Happy March!  It came in like a lion here with a crazy thunderstorm with torrential rain followed by snowfall all the next day.  You be crazy, Mother Nature.  Anyway, back to our regularly scheduled sewing blog…

I heart me some Jalie.  I think that is apparent from all of the Jalie I’ve sewn up and there’s more yet to come!  The first time I used this pattern was the racerback version for a combination dress and swim cover up for our honeymoon back in 2014, which I never blogged.  It took me another three years to realize just how fabulous it is in the raglan version…
