The rubberband maternity trick

September 27th, 2010

In the first few weeks/months of your pregnancy, things might get a little awkward pants-wise. You’re often not big enough yet to justify full blown maternity pants, and things are getting a little snug in the tummy region.

Well there’s a quick and easy solution to that.


new in store: the Rie dress sewing pattern

September 15th, 2010

Well friends I’m finally finishing up all the patterns I told you I had half done (so sorry if my posts have been a little pattern heavy recently!). Anyway, I’m finally able to release the Rie dress PDF sewing pattern. I can’t believe how popular this little dress has been, and how many pattern requests I’ve been receiving. But here it is finally! The email abuse can stop! Ok kidding… there was no email abuse – I’m being a little melodramatic (it’s due to pattern making induced over-tiredness!)


introducing the Lulu dress & top sewing pattern

September 7th, 2010

Meet my newest sewing pattern – the Lulu dress and top! I’m sure by now, you guys all know how much I love versatile clothing? Though my line of sewing patterns began purely to provide maternity patterns (since there seem to be no good ones anywhere) – I’m also trying to provide some styles that work for any woman, no matter what her stage of life.

The Jen Lula Dress

July 8th, 2010


One of my favourite things about blogging are the friends I’ve made through it, and Jen of JenLovesKev is no exception. She’s literally one of the nicest and sweetest girls ever.


Are you tired of this pattern yet?

June 12th, 2010

2010-06-07 2I know I’m one of those women who literally lives in dresses pretty much all the time… but it would be a crime not to show you how cute the shirt version of this pattern came out. Plus this is also the last day that you can enter the giveaway – it ends tonight, and i’ll announce the winner some time tomorrow or Monday depending on how busy my weekend is!


Another Pina dress

Here’s another version of my new sewing pattern… I LOVE the way it turned out! Plus I think the whole outfit worked sooo well for how stormy the day was. Is there anything better than stylish comfort?? I think not… Funnily enough, I just don’t think I’m ever going to get used to the fact that it’s not cold out when it’s overcast. My brain is very confused. Oh and incase you were wondering… no I will not stop wearing socks with everything. I’m obsessed.
