High Hopes Lucky Girl Mash Up

High Hopes Lucky Girl Mash Up

Pinspiration, ever heard of? Pinterest, so many ideas, and so little time …
These days I keep quite a few screenshots of items of clothing that I like. I keep them as inspiration. I recently took these screenshots:

I came across these while testing for the High Hopes Dolman Top by Ellie & Mac. 
Immediately I was reminded of one of the previous tests I participated in, that of the Lucky Girl Top by Ellie & Mac.

How To Attach Labels

How To Attach Labels

Sewing clothing is a lot of fun, and it gets better if you can make labels for your designs. Having a pretty label with your name or the cloth’s description will give your handmade clothing an authentic feel. You can choose to use ready-made labels or make your own.

Ready-made labels come in different designs, colors, shapes, and sizes. You may also decide to buy a tag from a store that custom makes them so that you can have something that resonates with your style.

Boys Fall Mini Capsule

Boys Fall Mini Capsule

Hey everyone! It’s Melissa again. I noticed that I seem to sew a lot for my daughter and decided that I would take some time to sew some clothes up for my son. I almost always lean toward clothes with characters and fun prints, but those don’t always match with everything. So over the last few days I have sewn up a mini capsule for my little guy. Some links included in this post are affiliate links..

Refashion The Unworn

Refashion The Unworn

Hello! I'm Diana and today I'll be sharing some ideas to shop your closet and refashion unworn items. If you're anything like me, there are two things we in the sewing community like to "collect": sewing patterns and fabric!

Finding An Alternative Way To Great Ruffles: Gathering Foot vs. Ruffler Foot

Finding An Alternative Way To Great Ruffles: Gathering Foot vs. Ruffler Foot

If you're anything like me Ruffles or Flutters, any type of gathering actually, really intimidated me for a long time! As someone who is completely right handed, when faced with a task that requires coordination with both hands combined with some nerve damage in my right hand, the technique of manually gathering fabric with basting stitches absolutely frightened Me! That didn't stop me from learning how to do it that way but it took me so long to get it done, I tended to stay away from patterns that required gathering!

Quick & Easy Vacation Romper Hacks

If I had to pick my favorite thing about sewing clothes for my family, it’s probably the fact that I can alter patterns and fit in numerous ways.

The vacation romper is a unique romper pattern for both kids and adults that features simple, comfy straps and a unique harem silhouette.

Wild Wide Leg Pants Pattern Sew Along

Wild Wide Leg Pants Pattern Sew Along

This time I wanted to work on a pair of the Wild Wide Pants (affiliate link) for my daughter. I know this is considered a boy’s pattern, but someone was a little jealous after I made a pair for her brother and she just had to have one for herself. I helped test these pants and still love them.  

The fabric I used is a bit left over after sewing up a strike for a fabric group. I love that I can use scraps for accent pieces and use something else for the main portion of the legs.

Easy Hem Foot Tutorial - Create Perfect Hemlines With No Stress or Tears

Easy Hem Foot Tutorial - Create Perfect Hemlines With No Stress or Tears

Hemming has to be my least favorite part of sewing. I would rather gather a waist than to hem the bottom. To sew a perfect hem, requires lots of time, which I currently don’t have a lot of.


As I was googling one night, I stumbled across a wide hem foot. I was a bridal seamstress previously, so I have experience with a narrow hem foot but I had never heard of a wide hem foot.

As a boy mom I find sewing and shopping for boys hard and sometimes lacking fun. Our poor boys don’t get much to choose from and finding fabrics for them can also be a difficult task as well. Don’t get me wrong, there are some really nice online...
