So this year for Me Made May, I decided I was aiming for one me-made item per week. I’ve only been sewing for about a year, and I seem to mostly make dresses and lingerie, so I knew my everyday-wear options were slim. Without further ado, my 2016 Me Made May roundup! The first item… Continue reading Me Made May 2016 Roundup!
Ever since I discovered By Hand London, I’ve seen some amazing renditions of the Anna Dress floating around the internet. I absolutely love my Georgia Dress, but I didn’t really feel drawn to making the Anna Dress for a long time.

I proceeded to research and… Continue reading Rockin’ Guitar Quilt
The moment I saw Simplicity 1373, I knew I needed to make it, but I also knew that it would make an amazing dress. So, I started planning. I bought a few yards of Cotton + Steel August Stampede in Navy, and got to work.
This year, for halloween, I decided I wanted to be Khaleesi (Daenerys Targaryen) from Game of Thrones. After days of research, I decided on modifying the McCalls 6941 pattern to make the dress I wanted. After a week of hard work, many failed zipper attempts, and a lot of last-minute sewing, I present my finish object…
I frequently browse the interwebs for new patterns to sew, and though I haven’t been sewing for long, I like to challenge myself. It’s how I learn best, I guess. So when I stumbled across By Hand London‘s patterns, I fell in love. I knew it would be a bit challenging, but felt confident that I… Continue reading FO: By Hand London Georgia
