The Warmth of Autumn - A Southern Thang

Those of us who live in the South are very familiar with warm Thanksgivings.  Some of us have been lucky enough to have even worn shorts for Christmas.  This November has had a few sporadic cold days but I wanted to make one last attempt to take advantage of a warm day in 2016.

Butterick 5316

I’m not a follower of the bodycon dress trend.  My confidence level will not allow me to be comfortable in one without a girdle.  And I haven’t been in the mood to wear a girdle(s) in a very long time.  But I do like a fit that is flattering and shows off a little curvature.

Nicole Miller Meets Simplicity 8140

I have fallen victim to loving me some Nicole Miller fabric!  These fabric choices are sure to bankrupt my sewing budget, but luckily I have a job to support my fabric addiction!  Nicole Miller does it again with this super silky, eye catching fabric to give you a Ready-to-Wear and Off-the-Rack look, with a Made-with-Love fit.

Project Runway At Home Challenge - Season 14 - Week 3

Over the past years, I have joined several Facebook groups for sew-cialists.   Last fall, a group was started for a Project Runway At Home Challenge of which I participated in for a few weeks.   Last fall, I posted the Week 1 challenge….on time.   This post is about the challenge presented on the 3rd episode of Season 14.  Competitors were paired and given an exotic location which would be their inspiration.  They were to make an outfit that could provide two different looks.  Of the locations, I chose The Greek Isles.

Longing for Something New (Part 2 of 2)

And here we are….Part 2 of my extremely late posts “Longing for Something New”.  I still say better late than never.  As I mentioned before, I was inspired to return to the long vest pieces when I came across some pictures from an up and coming blogger from my home town. (Check out  Young at Styles)

Longing for Something New! (Part 1 of 2)

This is a late post (yes a late post of two parts), but I wanted to still share.  Better late than never, right??  A rising star in the world of blogging has posted a plethora of fashionable outfits that have caught my eye, this one in particular....

Tried and True - Submission #2

Today I would like to introduce you guys to another TNT pattern of mine.  This pattern was featured in my very first blog post (Drape Necks).  My love for this pattern is as simple as its design and construction.
