Fall into Sewing Blog Tour Day One

Welcome to the Fall into Sewing Blog Tour!!! I love the change of seasons, but there is also a hectic-ness to this time of year; school starting, the holidays approaching, and somehow just 12 extra things added to the daily 'to do' list.  It sometimes makes my sewing time disappear.  And yet, fall sewing is my favorite!!!  I love fall clothes, I love layers that instantly transform basic looks into an entirely new outfit.  I love leggings and tunic dresses and my tall brown boots that go with EVERYTHING!

Back 2 School Blog Post Day 4

Welcome back to Day 4 of the Back to School Blog Tour... this is an amazing day because we have lots to celebrate. First, we have a pattern REVIVAL.  Older patterns at WWD are great, but they were created before people did layers or A0 formatting, so slowly over time I am updating these patterns.  Today's revival pattern is the Aviator Pattern for Women  AND it is today $3 Thursday pattern - WOHOOO!!!! (look for this style cover for pattern with layers and A0 printing) Ok, next up we have a BRAND NEW PATTERN!!!!  The girl's Fashionista Jean Jacket is...
