I started playing the accordion two years ago. I am pretty in love with it. It’s probably one of the hardest things I’ve ever done. I love it so much! Almost as much as I love this glitter app. I put them together and now we have my happy place! Enjoy!
Finally blocking this #miettecardigan! Now to decide what color buttons to use... #myhandmadewardrobe
Taking outfit photos is hard! I made this chalk & notch #fringedresspattern twice for our trip. This is the maxi version. I made the button up version, but then I changed my mind and just sewed it up without buttons. I’m not saying that dealing with slippery plaid rayon made me cry, but I’m not NOT saying that either. I think I could have gone down a size in this fabric, but since it’s a cover up, it’s no biggie. What’s interesting is that I based the height of the hem on where it hit when I was wearing a bra. My swimming suit doesn’t hoist the girls up as high I guess, because it was about an inch and a half too long when I put it on to head out to the pool. #memadewardrobe #chalkandnotchpatterns
Ok! My 2018 year goal is to not buy any ready made clothes. #rtwfast2018 Which means If I need anything besides under garments, I will be making them. That neatly coincides with the #makenine2018 challenge, where you pick nine sewing goals for the year. I tried to think of things I really wear, which consists mostly of dresses and skirts. . . 1. #brontetop by @jenniferlaurenhandmade 2. #sewingcoco Coco pattern by @tillybuttons 3. #lenoxshirtdress by @cashmerette 4. #seamworkastoria by @seamworkmag 5. #emerydress by @christinehaynes 6. #m7575 by @palmerpletsch 7. #francoisedress pattern by @tillybuttons 8.

I just got new glasses that bring me one step closer to my goal of looking like a cartoon character come to life. #clowncouture #lachilindrina
This morning I got to do two of my very favorite things, visit an art museum & chaperone a field trip. We visited @utahmuseumoffinearts & had a great time!
