Top 5 of 2016

Another year is officially down in the books, folks! I hope everyone had exciting and/or relaxed and/or sleepy celebrations last night! :) Tis time for a little reflection on all of the crazy things that flew by in the past 365 days. Cheers to another round of top 5’s. See also:   Hits White Lace Hey June Charleston Dress. This dress marks the first time I’ve made an official muslin for the sole purpose of fitting (of course it turned out to be wearable… and I only did it because the dress wasn’t for me… but still). :) Progress. Plus, it got worn for two events, so I think I had a decently satisfied recipient! Granted, after taking hand sewing at Camp Workroom Social later in the year, I got a little sad about my sheer lack of regard for my lace seams (there was no piecing together of any lace here, peeps!)… but it still turned out, and got worn, so that’s what matters! And yes, the mint zipper is still my favorite part (and the girl wearing …

Catching Up… Maui Wedding Makes!

Let’s not talk about when I actually made these… ;) Let’s just jump right in… First up… TEAM BRIDE Shirts! The bride helped me with these ones… I broke out my Cricut for the first time in a LONG time (I’ve only used it a couple of times – here and here – but when I need it, it definitely comes in handy!!!). I cut and she ironed :) We ALMOST ran out of the vinyl, so we had to get creative with the cutting on the last couple, but we ended up having just enough!   The shirts are from here, and we used glitter vinyl that I’ve had sitting around for a couple of years. I can’t even remember what I originally bought it for :/ All of the shirts were mint except for the bride’s which of course was white and just said Bride. I originally had thought about buying them… but this way was so much better! Not to mention quicker and cheaper! See them in full bridal force here. :) Next up, the Hey June …

Top 5 of 2015

Phew! Where has this month gone?! And this year! Ugh… it’s always the same… it flies by. It’s fun to look back though! So I’m joining in with Gillian’s Top 5 again this year to reflect a little (here was last year, in case you’re interested). Top 5 Hits 1. Halloween, definitely. Just everything about it. My family definitely did not have faith that I would finish (they love me and all but I got more than one comment every time I ran into one of them about whether or not we would actually be wearing any costumes on Halloween) No faith, I tell you! So, yes, you better believe I finished (mostly) ;)   2. My Ginger Jeans! They are far from perfect but I’m still excited about making jeans in the first place so they were a definite win. To be honest, though, I didn’t pre-wash my fabric well enough to hold in the color so I’ve only worn them a couple of times because my hands/skin end up blue. They’ve been sitting on my …
