Sewing the Spring Capsule Wardrobe

February 28, 2019

Spring will be here before we know it. As soon as the weather gets a hint of warmth I want to pull out brighter colors and lighter weight clothing. But fabric store overload is a problem for me when planning to sew a capsule. The minute I walk into a fabric store I am overwhelmed with colors and textures. I’m drawn to all the cute and colorful quilting cottons. Unfortunately, my clothing will not be made of those fabrics. Focus, focus. I’m not sure my choices in the photo below will turn out the cohesive collection I was going for, but I do see some similarities. I’m working on some planning sheets to help streamline the process. If they work for me, I’ll be happy to share at a later date.  For now I’m on to cutting.

How to Sew a Tee Shirt With Ready-to-Wear Techniques

September 20, 2017

I love making tee shirts. While there are so many cute woven patterns out there, many of us rely on on knits for day to day wear and having custom made tee shirts gives you such creative options. For children, coordinating several fabrics together stretch clothing budgets and give kids options of what to wear together. I have incorporated ready to wear techniques, making this tee shirt even faster to sew.


Changes, Changes

April 21, 2017

Those of you who have known me as a Videographer will find big changes in my focus. I have not worked on videos for quite some time, and I’ve been enjoying more and more creating children’s clothing, home decor, accessories, and printable papers. This wide variety of interests was perplexing for me, as I felt I should choose one area and go with it. Recently we moved to the country and with my love of vintage and rustic things, I finally found focus. Make a wide variety of items, but let them be vintage or rustic style. My web site will change to this as soon as I’m finished fiddling with it. It must stay pointed to video until I’ve worked out all the kinks. I hope that will be soon.

Trends are changing. We filmed two mid-week weddings in May. We hope this trend takes off. We can offer better pricing mid-week too.
