Tessuti Lisa Dress

Lisa Dress 1

Hey there! How is everyone doing? I am here today to show you the dress I made for myself for Easter.  I am in this awkward postpartum phase that I really don’t remember so much from my first two pregnancies.  I seem to have stalled on the weight loss progress and only about 5% of my clothes fit me right now. (I arrived at that number quite unscientifically. Essentially nothing fits except for the few things I’ve made for myself since having Caroline.)  I’ve got sort of an unintentional capsule wardrobe going on right now.  I keep rotating through my three Linden sweatshirts, my Marianne top, and my Extraordinary Girl top (which I took in so it’s not so maternity any more.) I have two pairs of Hudson pants and one pair of jean in the rotation for bottoms.  Continue reading

Zsalya Top 1

Hello Friends! I am so happy to be a part of the blog tour for Etno, Pat Bravo’s new line from Art Gallery Fabrics. When Pat put out the call on her Instagram account looking for people to participate I happened to be up doing a middle of the night baby feeding. Immediately I sent an e-mail saying I would love to be involved! I was thrilled when I found out I was selected. I am a big fan of Art Gallery fabrics and I’ve used them for many of my sewing projects.  There are so many amazing prints to choose from and the fabrics are great quality. I was provided with a gorgeous voile, called Shore Remains Algae, to make the Zsalya Top from Kate and Rose patterns. I have been wanting to make this top for a while and I am so happy with how it turned out. Continue reading
