What I Wore

I have outfits today!  And it’s actually a Wednesday!  I’m sharing a few things that I’ve been wearing this week and the week before Disney.  I always struggle with this time of year– I am SO OVER summer clothes (and temps), but it’s not cool enough in Georgia yet to go full-fledged jeans and sweaters.  But dresses and lightweight cardigans and booties help make the transition easier.  So, onto the outfits! Tomorrow I’m posting about 5 summer trends that I[Read more]

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]

I am so excited about the warmer weather and all the CUTE clothes that are out this season!  But in addition to doing a liiiiittle bit of shopping, I am planning on sewing up a bunch of handmade garments for spring! I have already gotten a pretty solid start, and have a list of some great patterns to add to my collection. Here’s some of the things I’ve already made, and a few of the items I plan on sewing[Read more]

#SpringHandmadeCloset

I have been so excited about the weather and how lovely and warm it has been outside, and all it makes me want to do is hole myself up in my upstairs sewing room and make billions of springtime dresses!!  I have been perusing all the beautiful new patterns and going through my list of old favorites to compile my Spring Handmade Closet challenge for myself this year! I started this semi-annual challenge for myself last fall (see that list[Read more]

What I Wore Wednesday

Hi Friends!  It’s been a few weeks since I did a WIWW post, so I have a bunch of pictures to share.  If you’re new to my blog or haven’t been reading long, I started following Lindsay at The Pleated Poppy years ago, and her What I Wore Wednesday posts.  She started posting the outfits she wears each week to encourage herself to get out of the stay at home mom pajamas and yoga pants rut, and start getting dressed[Read more]

Handmade Closet: Two Dress Staples

As soon as Christmas is over, and certainly after Valentine’s Day, my mind starts to wander away from jackets, scarves, sweaters, and boots, and towards lighter weight dresses, short sleeves, and sandals!  And though I really loved all the clothes I made for myself over this past fall and winter, I am ready to challenge myself again with some beautiful new spring and summer clothes! As I look through all the beautiful and amazing new spring patterns from my favorite[Read more]

Fall Handmade Closet Wardrobe

Over the summer, while I was talking a break from the Goat & Lulu Etsy shop,  I did a lot of sewing for myself.  When I am caught up in orders, and making things for the kids, it is nearly impossible to carve out two hours or so to make a dress for myself (I still have a tunic that I cut out summer of 2014 that is waiting to be sewn together!)!  But while I wasn’t taking orders, I used my[Read more]
