A Toaster Sweater for Engagement Photos

Okay, I’ll try to spare you the blabbering rant about how long it’s been… let’s just hope I remember what I’m doing here. Or who I am. It’s hard to know after you’ve been sucked into the abyss of wedding everything for so long. We’ve been back from the honeymoon for a couple of weeks now and I feel like I’m finally settling back in. I finally got to clear off the kitchen table this past weekend, so that was pretty amazing. I’ll get into all of the wedding DIY hoopla soon, but for now I’ll start off with a catch-up post from January :) The only non-wedding thing I made this year before jumping into the deep end… Yes, it’s the Sew House Seven Toaster Sweater 2! Made to go along with January’s Project #SewMyStyle. I was undecided about the neckline at first (I’m not usually a fan of high necklines & turtlenecks), but so many cute versions were popping up on IG, I figured I had to try it out! There’s probably not much …

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 …
