Friday Favorites: The Roho Blouse

Happy Friday, my friends! I hope you all had a wonderful Valentine’s Day! I was lucky to get a day date out to lunch with Scott, and then Brantley’s softball practice was cancelled, so we went out to dinner too, and took the kids! Lots of candy, lots of chocolate, and lots of love! For my Friday Favorites today, I’m sharing a special project I’ve been working on and hinting about… The Roho Blouse from Cotton + Thread!

Father’s Day Dresses

If your husband is anything like mine, he has a closet full of dress shirts for work, and he only wears a handful.  He’s got some from college that he just can’t let go of, some that don’t fit, and some that just aren’t his style anymore (or never were!).  Instead of throwing them in a garbage bag and hauling them off to goodwill, I decided to make a few special dresses for my girls out of Scott’s old dress[Read more]

Handmade Closet: Ayda Top & Dress and Tammy’s Tulip Shorts Pattern Testing

Earlier this spring, I was so honored (and excited!!) to be invited to do some really fun pattern testing, and I am finally able to share the results with you today!  The amazingly talented Caroline Hulse of Sew Caroline and Katie Skoog of The Simple Life Pattern Company joined forces to create the sweetest collaborative Mommy & Me 6-Pattern Collection!  I have several of both Caroline’s women’s patterns and Katie’s girl’s patterns and have tested for Caroline in the past, so testing for[Read more]
