Hello everyone! I’m so excited to be back to share how my fall sewing queue has been progressing over the last few months. In September, I shared my fall sewing queue with you all, with an outfit for each month sketched on my custom croquis from the MyBodyModel app. It is no lie when people say your
When I first heard of MyBodyModel, I was on my way to work listening to the Love to Sew Podcast in my car. I was fascinated by the story of how MyBodyModel came to be, and I was also completely intrigued by the idea of creating a personal croquis using my very own body measurements.
I used to sew for my daughters when they were little, but for one reason or another had not sewn in 10 years or more. Now I’m back, I am thrilled to discover the thriving communities of podcasts and online sewing groups! I joined the 52 week sewing challenge Facebook group, which lead me to

I’ve always been a little envious of people who seem to have a really clear sense of personal style. Right now I feel like my “style” for the last few years has been running shorts (even though I don’t run), t-shirts, jeans, this one double gauze button down from Target, and my Chacos… Now
Do you ever sketch out your fabric ideas for a sewing pattern? For me, what usually happens is that I’ll see a pattern or some fabric and think, “Oh that would make a great _____.” And it just comes together in my head. But sometimes you have fabric in your stash and you don’t quite know what to
Today, we’re talking sleepwear goals! It feels odd to plan a sleep wardrobe but I just feel like I’m over the t-shirt/gym shorts combo for bedtime. I want some nice, cute (but still comfy) pjs! I rounded up some inspiration pictures in order to help narrow my pattern options. My “sleepwear style” is pretty
By now it’s a well known fact that I love using MyBodyModel croquis to sketch clothes that I plan to make. I use my Apple pen and an app called Sketch Club to sketch on my iPad. It’s easy to simulate fabrics. For Simplicity pattern 6467, I colored the sketch with pink and then added
