Teal Box-Pleat Skirt

These box pleat skirts are seriously my favorites.  I will be making a tutorial soon.  I just need to find another fabric perfect for one. The fabric is a brocade that I used a while ago when I made a pencil-dress.  The best part about this skirt is that, like Sam’s, IT HAS POCKETS!  You…

Teal Tribal Print!!

This fabric took me FOREVER to figure out what is wanted to be.  I was back and forth between having a more blouse-y top like my Workin’ Knit dress, my other tribal knit dress, OR what it turned out to be.  What finally helped me make a decision was that I really wanted sleeves because…

Leftover Fabric = New PJ Shorts!

Stylin’ Green Vest

Hello everyone!!  I love the color of this green fabric, it is a really sturdy suiting fabric. First off, welt pockets are the most finicky thing ever. I have gotten pretty good at them, but not as good as I want to be.  I have also been trying to perfect making a couple men’s shirts, but…

Warmest Winter Coat EVER!!!!

Hey everyone!!  The warmest winter coat I have ever owned was my Letterman’s jacket.  Sadly, once I got to college I still wore it around for the beginning part of winter my freshman year.  I didn’t care, but it was annoying being called a “typical freshman.”  Ever since I swore off that jacket each winter…
