Back to School Cascade Tee

Are you kids back in school now?  Mine have been back for a couple weeks now-even my sweet little Nut-Nut!  She started preschool and is feeling so grown up!  I’m over at the New Horizons Designs Blog today sharing pictures of the sweet Back to School Cascade Tee I made for her first day.  Such a bittersweet day…  ...

Maggie Peplum Top Hack

After sewing my daughter’s layered ruffle tee from the Maggie Top, I just could not get over how cute and grown up she looked.  And she loves her outfit!  I love sewing for her when she loves the outcome.  I saw the last bit of the floral jersey I used here and knew it would make the perfect peplum to match her lavender pants!  So I took the same pattern as before and made a Maggie Peplum Top!  Now I’ve got a little capsule wardrobe going for her.  She might actually go to school in clothes that go together!

The Cascade Tee can be sewn up as a basic tank, short, or...

Mother’s Day and Easter Dress 2018

One of the fun things about having girls is making dresses! This year I’m calling these a combined Easter dress and Mother’s Day dress because I had juuussst enough of this delicious Cherry Blossom Haiku fabric from Monaluna leftover from the girls dresses to squeeze out a peplum top for me!  I’m loving matching my girls for a while.  It’s cheesy, but I know they aren’t going to be into this whole matchy-matchy thing in a few short years!  I’ve got to soak it in while its still cool and desirable. I finished these dresses well before Easter and...
