Wildflower Tops


This is the Wildflower Top from Blank Slate Patterns. It's a knit top pattern with a choice of short sleeves, bell sleeves, or long sleeves. For this turquoise top, I chose the bell sleeves and I love how it drapes so nicely. The under bodice is layered under the deep V front bodice and it is perfect because it adds extra coverage without too much bulk.

Street Fair Skirt - Three Ways


The Street Fair Skirt pattern is from marie-madeline studio and it is a very versatile and practical pattern! I received the pattern quite a few years ago as a gift and finally made it (three times!) this summer. It is an A-line shape with a yoke and invisible zipper. It can be made in two different lengths with optional pockets, optional piping trim and an optional bottom band.

Recently, I sewed up the Lulu Dress by Craftiness is not Optional. It is an adorable little dress with endless options. You can make it cap sleeve or sleeveless, all knit or knit and woven, top or dress length. You also have the option of including a faux button placket, a shirt pocket, skirt pockets, or a faux drawstring.

21 before 22

Hello!! At the end of July I had my 21st birthday! I had a wonderful day spent with my family and my parents took me out for lunch. It was very relaxing. This is also the year I started my senior year of college. Yikes! School just started a couple weeks ago, but I am already realizing the reality of my senior status. This is my fourth year of being in college now. Four years! It is all very exciting and scary at the same time. I am looking forward to what the year will bring.

Sweet Pea Pajamas

 A few months ago, I had the wonderful opportunity of testing a pattern for Blank Slate Patterns. It was my first time testing a pattern, and I was very excited! The pattern I tested was the a girl's pajama pattern called the Sweet Pea Pajamas. I tested the size 2T for my littlest sister.

Updates and a Question

Hello, dear neglected blog!! I have missed you! Between working at summer camp, going on vacation to SD, and visiting family and friends, my summer has been really busy! I'm home now until school starts, so I have been doing a lot of sewing. Hopefully I will be able to share some of my projects with you soon!

Eiffel Tower Top

Well, hello there! Although I did not fall off the face of the earth, June seems to have escaped me. Time flies! I have been so busy working here at camp as a health center assistant. It's been great, but I haven't had much free time and I haven't been able to sew all month. I discovered the sewing machines owned by the camp and was able to try them out one day. I also did a lot of sewing in May before I came to camp and am just now getting around to blogging about them.
