Jumpsuit pattern mash-up

My Ella turned 3 on Wednesday! This is unreal to me because 1–time is FLYING. And 2–she was born after I started blogging and has made appearances starting when she was still in my belly in my maternity clothes post, and as herself as a wee babe the day after her arrival ....more

Fawn Lily Review

So I’m talking about the September Showcase at Frances Suzanne again today! This time, I get to be on the sewing end of the post. I chose to try my hand at the Fawn Lily by Rock the Stitch for Willow & Co patterns ....more

Busy Lizzy pattern

Several months ago, the girls at Frances Suzanne invited me to participate in the September Showcase–a 2 week long showcase of rising indie pattern designers with 5 or fewer children’s patterns.

Sofia instantly loved the Sunny Dress because of the open back. I’ve mentioned several times before that her back heats her up in the summer and I tried to make her as many backless clothing options as possible ....more

Adventure Tee

I’m not sure I’ll ever get tired of sewing for Ollie. I definitely enjoy all the girly outfits, don’t get me wrong, but sewing for this stud is always enjoyable. Maybe it’s because the pieces always go together quickly (and I never have to ruffle or gather anything!) or maybe it’s because I adore the print mixing on him ....more
