My First Underwire Bra

My First Underwire Bra

Ya'll... I can't even begin to describe how excited I am to have completed this particular under garment. I've worked on bralettes before; I even dabbled in sewing the Sophie Swimsuit last year which has a very similar construction to this Marlborough Bra, but I honestly never thought I would receive so much joy from one little project. Especially since I generally detest wearing bras!

Of course there are a ton of imperfections in this bra. I didn't have the correct thread color, my needle...


My Jenny Overalls - 4 Ways

My Jenny Overalls - 4 Ways

I haven't had a chance to really sew for myself much these past few weeks. We've been working on house renovations and our garden (who knew there could be so many bugs!) and pattern updates- needless to say, my plate has felt very full.

This particular coat has been on my radar for at least a year now, but I kept putting the project off because I was slightly intimidated. I also wasn't sold on it's length- it looked as if it could either be a really amazing length or cut me at just the wrong spot. So I waited.

A few months ago, though, I was...


My Suki Kimono

My Suki Kimono

This kimono-style robe is the definition of luxurious... at least for me. I. Am. Obsessed!

I had had my eye on this Alexander Henry fabric since the very first day Topstitch had set out to purchase some of their prints for the shop. I feel as if I was a step away from begging the owner to please please please bring it in to the shop because I wanted to purchase at least 3 yards...
