The One With The Dumpster Sofa

I did not technically do any dumpster diving to get this settee, none the less, I still retrieved it from the side of a dumpster. I can only imagine that the Dumpers were too tired after a day of cleaning out to actually heave the settee into said dumpster. To them, I offer my eternal… Continue reading The One With The Dumpster Sofa

Floral Refashion

I can’t believe I am showing you this. This dress is from my senior line in college. I do not like it. That being said, I am in love with the fabric. It was love at first sight with this embroidered silk. I bought it and then sadly turned it into this unfortunate dress The… Continue reading Floral Refashion

My Sister’s Custom Wedding Dress

Writing this post is proving to be a little more difficult than I expected. I am so excited to share these pictures of my absolutely gorgeous sister. And to show the dress that has been like my baby for the past several months. It’s just difficult to find the words that describe the experience of… Continue reading My Sister’s Custom Wedding Dress

Floral Bridesmaid Dress and Ridiculous Faces

You are welcome in advance for the ridiculous faces that I make. I knew I had a tendency to do this, but considering the last 2 weddings I have been in and the pictures that have resulted out of them, this is apparently a thing that I do, not just a tendency. Enjoy. I would… Continue reading Floral Bridesmaid Dress and Ridiculous Faces

Pattern Mixing and Wool for Spring

I wanted to get one last wear in of my wool skirt before it would be deemed ridiculous to be wearing wool. Though with the way this winter played out, most of the time it was ridiculous to be wearing wool. Oh well. I paired the skirt with one of my favorite shirts that I… Continue reading Pattern Mixing and Wool for Spring

Put a Button on it

I have a small obsession with covered buttons. They add such a tailored, finished feel to any project. I think most people think of them relating to clothing, I’m included in that, but they also look great on┬ádrapes and roman shades and pillows. They would pretty much look great on anything. Adding dressmaking details to… Continue reading Put a Button on it

A Progress Report

I stated in my goals for 2016 that I was making my sister’s wedding dress, my bridesmaid dress, and my mom’s mother of the bride dress. This is ALL I am working on right now. Not really. I am doing my regular work and doing these other things along side that. I’m not stressed. Or… Continue reading A Progress Report



The idea behind this post has been brewing in the back of my brain for a few months now. Style. I read this list a few weeks ago and thought that it had some good merit to it. It didn’t list following trends and splurging on the 10 must haves for every closet, both of… Continue reading Stylish

Layered Up

My new obsession as of late is layering dresses over a white button up. It began with my houndstooth dress. The day I premiered the dress it was a bit of a cold and dreary day. I have a tendency to be cold natured and didn’t want to spend my day shivering. Typically people would… Continue reading Layered Up

Lace Overlay

I want to introduce to you one of my favorite projects that I have worked on recently (or ever). These are a pair of cafe curtains I recently made for someone. After I finished them I wanted to make lace overlay everything: dresses, more panels, roman shades, dresses. That’s a good project, something that leaves… Continue reading Lace Overlay
