The “Lis” Dress

Now that I have a Serger, I wanted to make this dress again since technically you should serge around the neck and sleeves, but I made it last season by just zigzag stitching the edges and it held up with little fraying after washing/drying. You can find my original version and review of this Juvie […]

Pattern Remix: The Kyla Dress Pattern

One of the first patterns I used was the Kyla Dress by Frog Legs and Ponytails.  I love that it’s reversible which means you have no exposed seams, so if you don’t own a serger (I didn’t at the time) this is an especially great pattern.  It’s also where I learned how to make bias […]

The Snap Wrap Remix Dress

This cute pleated tote has been in my “to-do” sewing folder for about a year now and I finally got around to making it.  It’s a free tute from Artsy-Craftsy Babe which you can download here.  She makes and sells a great selection of cute bag patterns.  I’m a huge fan of PDF patterns anyway […]
