Sugar & Spice dress

;)

I’ve got a cute little dress to show you today! I made this adorable dress for a friend who was expecting and on “team green” with hopes (my hopes, that is!) that it would be a girl Our church has an abundance of boys….and it seems to be growing!

Hi there! Were you looking for this earlier? Don’t worry, it’s just Friday and of COURSE my computer decided on a different schedule! Anyway, I’m so happy to be sharing a skirt tutorial as part of Simple Simon’s Skirting the Issue event!

 This is not my tutorial, but one that I felt needed to be passed on….it’s so cute! Originally posted over on the Sewing Rabbit blog by Designs by Sessa. Also, this is not a skirt tutorial as much as it is a way to “fancy up” your skirts – any skirt!

Skylark Tee and Tank {review}

Hey there! I was privileged to test the Skylark Tee by Gracious Threads last week, and what a great little pattern! From the front, it’s a nice, slim-fitting tee, but the back has a little surprise for you! A little inset triangle lets you add some contrast using knit or woven….

Isn’t that adorable?? I upcycled an old t-shirt for the light turquoise, and used some Waves and Whales from l’oiseau Fabric (*affiliate links) for the contrast inset and neckline. J calls this her whale shirt
