Hit the Beach with Outer Banks!

Outer Banks Sewing Inspiration 2100

Outer Banks sewing inspiration from Petite Stitchery

Our friend Laura over at Petite Stitchery recently vacationed in the Outer Banks, and what better fabric for seaside picnics than our new Outer Banks fabric collection?! The Maize Dress features our Galloping Border in Peony, and really makes the ombre effect shine. The Periwinkle Dress incorporates three different fabrics and we especially love the Musings in Multi for the bodice. We hope you'll visit the Petite Stitchery line of patterns, leaving inspired to sew up some summery dresses in Outer Banks!

The Buying a House Blouse


Hello, everyone!  It’s been quite a while since I have posted anything.



The main reason for my online disappearance is the fact that I am now a homeowner!  That process has kept me rather busy, and the move, etc., has not left much time for sewing, let alone blogging.  I was actually without internet for a couple of weeks which was rather refreshing.


Of course, I wanted to make a new outfit for the occasion, but there was not a lot of free time prior to closing.  But I was determined!  


I have been wanting to make this blouse for years.  I often pull out scraps of fabric along with the pattern, hoping that I can squeeze out an entire garment, but it never has worked for me.  Until now!


The leftovers from this skirt and this dress were tucked away in a drawer, and while the dye lots do not match, I think I managed to make it work.  The neck tie was made with the leftovers from the skirt, and the rest of the blouse (which is a slightly more pigmented and heavier weight cotton) was cut from the remains of the dress.  There were quite a few people who thought that the look was actually a dress, so I guess the difference is not terribly obvious.


These photos were taken about an hour after signing all of the paperwork (in my old neighborhood).  I was exhausted, but very happy.


I really began looking in earnest over a year ago, so it was a huge relief to finally be done.


It has been quite an adventure, and my new living space is still not “finished,” but Valentino and I are definitely settling in, and I am finally getting back into a routine – one that will definitely include many more sewing adventures!

What to Pack For a Day at the Beach With a Toddler

It’s not summer to me until we’ve been to the beach. Being by the water has always been so restful and healing for my soul. The older I get, the more of a beach gal I seem to become. I’m happy to report that Piper shares my love of the water and has loved the […]
