mauve floral kensington dress

If ever I could literally, physically, swoon over a fabric, it would probably be this one. Double brushed jersey knit is the stuff of dreams, peeps. The hand is incredible, and it's buttery soft and so easy to sew with! I am almost regretting sewing something for Sadie out of it instead of being selfish and either hoarding it or sleeping with it … [Read more...]

It's super cozy and simple! I knew I needed to use the skater dress pattern because I didn't want to gather the … [Read more...]

sadies baptism dress

Sadie recently turned eight and chose to be baptized (we're LDS), and therefore needed a white dress, which is tradition! She didn't really have anything in mind, but we decided on lace being a part of the dress. I settled on the Mori dress pattern, which Heidi sent to me awhile ago and I've been wanting to sew up ever since! I used this poplin, … [Read more...]

vintage floral kensington dress

I was looking over at my fabric the other day while nursing Jack at my computer (as one does....amiright?), and noticed this fabric poking out of a pile. I had thrifted it last year-it's a lovely vintage slinky knit that has one of the most unique prints I've seen! Sadie and I couldn't figure out if the design is of mushrooms, hats, birds, or all … [Read more...]

Peter Pan Baby Boy Nursery

Almost the minute (ok, at least the same day) that I found out I was having a boy this time around, I started dreaming up his nursery...browsing Pinterest for ideas and themes, of course. I pinned a bunch of random nurseries and realized there was a bit of a theme...I liked the colors grey & green, rustic wood accents, and adventure/woodsy … [Read more...]
