Hi! I’m Tori, and my cute husband is Dallas. We both love the beach, ice cream on top of freshly baked cookies, hiking, and road trip jam sessions. We also eat Mexican and Greek food like it’s going out of style.
We have a son, Braden, who was born in December 2016, and he is the sweetest little boy who naps really well so that Mommy can sew. 😉 We are currently living in the Bay area, south of San Francisco California, and we LOVE it!
A little bit of the reason for this blog: My love for clothes (and shopping, I guess) started to develop at the beginning of high school, but I sort of got a little bit out of control once I got a job in retail the summer I graduated high school. It took me a [long] while to realize that I never really wore anything in my closet (about 200 shirts, give or take), and I was more of a basics and comfort kind of girl.
I have always wanted to learn how to sew. My grandma is an amazing seamstress and makes all sorts of things. I was always so amazed at the different things she would make, but when I was younger, sewing dolls, pillow cases, and quilts were never very exciting to me. I now love sewing clothes more than anything else, and I’m so glad I was able to figure that out.
Over the past couple of years, I have cleaned out my closet and have tried really hard to stick to clothes that are basic/simple and that I know I will wear. It has worked out well so far, and it makes me more motivated to sew the type of clothes that I will enjoy wearing instead! (Now I just shop for fabric like a crazy woman. haha)
Dallas and I are very much “doers” and since we are involved in many different things, we have named this The Doing Things Blog! For the most part, this blog is all things fashion sewing, family, food, and adventures.
Thank you for visiting and come back soon!
