How i Wore It: Cleaning

posted on 03/12/2013, by

How do you clean? Do you wear sweats? An oversized tee? Scrunchie socks? Well, I do it a little bit differently. I wear wedding dresses (I have two), sip wine, and dance to really bad tunes. Birds may even chirp. If you’re going to get sh** done, why not do it in style, right? I  Continue Reading »

A morsel of fashion history is what I have to offer you today. I don’t want to cause any overdoses. While ending an elliptical marathon at the gym two weeks ago, I flipped through Town And Country Weddings to make the time go by faster. Yes, I read wedding magazines. I read all magazines –  Continue Reading »

Maddie, you’re so slow! I know, I know. You don’t have to tell me because I know.  While I was home in Florida for Christmas, Valerie, Brandy, Becky, and I collaborated once again for a photo shoot of my most recent creations, which this time, was not a dress but lingerie. Well, the photos are in.  Continue Reading »

How i Wore It + Giveaway

I channeled Michael Jackson. I mixed black and white, incorporated sequins and fingerless gloves, and scrunched my socks low, real low. Don’t give me that look. This is how I do comfy and cozy. I don’t even need to grab my crotch to make a statement. I am a Floridian only by birth and definitely  Continue Reading »













      I'm representing the sewing community on COCA COLA'S blog, revealing who we are, what we do and how much fun we have. Be sure to check out and share the article!

       

      One of my favorite books, Demystifying Bra Fitting and Construction by NORMA LOEHR is now available in print. Order a copy now!

       

      JEN just released my favorite Grainline pattern to date, The Alder Shirtdress, which is available in both print and PDF. And that's not it! She also relaunched her online shop. Way to go, Jen!

       

      Join Marce and Gillian for OONAPALOOZA, a month-long tribute to the powerhouse of print and color, Oona Balloona from Kalkatroona. Challenge yourself to create something as loud, bubbly and one of a kind as her personality.

       

      Have you seen OHHH LULU'S new pattern, The Zooey Bikini Top and Bottom? With princess seams, the top is easy to alter for any shape, and the bottom have either a bow or side ties (my favorite).

       

      Jeans in July! LIZZY just finished a pair of jeans using Named Pattern's Jamie Jeans. Love the seaming!

       

      Even though she went through many muslins, ANDREA'S final swimsuit is a total success!

       

      Need tips for working with border prints? CAROLYN gives a great list of links and resources to help you.

       

      In most instances, a sequel is not as good as the first. But when it comes to sewing, it's the opposite. CLARE is showing off her second version of McCalls 6696, which is way better than the first.

       

      The newest indie pattern release is from PAULINE ALICE. Last week, she launched Alameda Dress, a simple, modern yet flirty dress with interesting seaming. And that's not all she announced! She is also opening an online shop!
