Dior Inspired

Hi All! So a couple weeks ago the Sewcialist group from Toronto, decided to get together for a fancy sewing outing. It was a chance to see the Dior Exhibit happening at the ROM, have high tea, and of course, wear our fancy me-mades. Now I have to say that I don't...

Elmira Wrap Top | Fall Sewing

Elmira Wrap Top | Fall Sewing

Hi All,   It was about that time again where I needed to sew something that wasn't a bra, and this time I settled on something that felt very fall to me - a wrap top. Something that is light, but cosy, that wraps you up, but doesn't smother you in warmth just...

Me Made May: Week 3

Me Made May: Week 3

Hi All! Another week of May just sailing past. This time I took as many photos as last week- not too bad lol! It's always amazing to me how much things change in May- the month always starts out cold, in sweaters and jackets and jeans- then by three weeks in you can...

Me Made May: Week 2

Me Made May: Week 2

Hi All, Week 2 of Me Made May has come and gone, and I have to admit that I wasn't quite as good at taking pictures of all my me-mades this week. I do wear me-mades every day, but a lot of the time they are repeats, or not super photo worthy (like my really old but...

The Start of Me Made May

The Start of Me Made May

Hi All!   I can't believe it's already May. I think I do this every year- It starts with Fall and I love the crisp cool weather, then it's winter and I'm like- this is cool, I like this- then it's still winter.. and I think it will never end and just accept that...

Ogden Cami Dress & #MMMay2017

Hi All! I decided it was time to do a little selfish sewing 🙂 With my trip to Barcelona last month, and Me Made May coming up I wanted to think of a perfect addition to my spring/summer wardrobe. I wanted something light, something simple, something comfortable and...

A Little Mom & Me Sewing

A Little Mom & Me Sewing

Hi All! It was time for a little selfish sewing this month. Something that wasn't underwear, something that would add to my non-lingerie wardrobe. But instead of pure selfish sewing, I decided it would be better if mom and I did a swap and sewed something for each...

Hi All! Back to the Style Search! And this week I decided that after some skirts, and a dress, it was about time that I added some classic tops to my wardrobe. Looking through my wardrobe I realized that I have absolutely no spaghetti strap tank tops- I have some...

[Style Search]: Week 6 Lingerie Wardrobe

[Style Search]: Week 6 Lingerie Wardrobe

Hi All! Did you really think I'd make it too much longer without talking about lingerie? It's really a huge part of my wardrobe, and I have to say that after going through my style search, I realize that I haven't focused my bra making towards a perfect 'bra...

Hi All! So after a lot more pacing in my room, trying on what felt like everything I owned, and a little more laying on my floor staring at my ceiling, I managed to make 10 outfits that I love!! I have to say that once you get into it, and you get a little more...

[Style Search] Week 2: The Closet Overhaul

[Style Search] Week 2: The Closet Overhaul

Hi All, This post is really late. I was planning to go through my wardrobe this week and it would be fairly simple- look through my things, pick out the things that are summer, the things that don't fit me anymore and the things that don't fit my categories- shouldn't...

[Style Search] Week 1 My Style Story

Hi All! Here marks the beginning of my style search. *deep breath* I have to say that I'm a little nervous for this, and I feel a little vulnerable. I've felt this style crisis coming on for a couple years now, and although I feel like I have a fairly strong sense of...

[WEEK 3]: MMMAY16 Round Up!

Hi All! Week 3 has already come to an end, how does time move so quickly? And I have to say that time slipped out too quickly this week, and I didn't have time to get my indie make done. After fighting a terrible cold for the first half of the month (since when do...
