Scout Tee [Front Zip Peplum]

I’ve been wanting to make a zipper-front shirt or dress since I saw Merrick’s lemon dress from last summer. I loved the zipper detail and that it was nursing friendly. I have also been loving all of the loose fitting peplums lately and really wanted to make one.

My First Baby Quilt

I finally made my first ever baby quilt (for my baby! what?!)! Quilts aren’t my usual choice when it comes to sewing, but I wanted to make him something special, even if he’s got like a zillion blankets from everyone now (AMAZING ones, made by family members).

Lonetree Jacket

Pattern: Lonetree Jacket Fabric: Denim (Cotton 98%, Spandex 2%) from JoAnn’s First of all, I am totally mind blown that I made this jacket.

If you follow Riva La Diva, she always uses it, so I knew it had to be a great basic dress pattern. The pattern is very basic and doesn’t … Continue reading “DIY Swing Dress”

Fall Sewing Inspiration

Having all of my fabric and sewing supplies in boxes really makes me go through withdraws. I haven’t made something in so long.

I went a little crazy last … Continue reading “Fall Sewing Inspiration”
