Time for School Wardrobe Capsule Tour

 I am bursting at the seams to share what I have been working on since July! It's been a HUGE project but it is so rewarding to have it done. Well, almost, I have a few more pieces I want to add, but I ran out of time. Life, what can you do but roll with it, right? 

When I was invited on the Time for School Wardrobe Capsule Tour, I jumped on it! What a cool concept! And it's really perfect for independent kids who like to pick their own clothes but have a dad who kinda cares that they match, just a little bit. And while Thomas homeschools, he still needs clothes that look nice for his weekly cello lessons and trips to the library. And simply because we live in a civilized society.

 I don't do a lot of formal planning when I sew. It just kinda happens. No sketches, no real set goal, no picking a color pallet, or even choosing fabrics ahead of time. I just sew with a general idea in mind.

Love Notions Boyfriend Cardigan

Fall is coming! Fall is coming! Is anybody else doing a happy dance like I am! I love fall because I am a hoodie and cardigan fanatic! And luckily for me Love Notions just released her new Boyfriend Cardigan yesterday and I am in love with it.

Not JUST a Sunsuit Tour

When I was invited to join the Not Just a Sunsuit Tour by Call Ajaire, I was super excited for a couple of reasons. First, I like the challenge of sewing trendy clothes that have the RTW look my tween looks for and this pattern looked perfect for that challenge!
