I was inspired by this @rtabrand hoodie (swipe right for the inspo) and had to make it! It's sparkly and so extra but still comfy af. It's my new go-to weekend piece. I used #m7688 view a/c, without any of the bands and widened the back and sleeves. It was a super quick make, probably one of most worn things I've ever made. 
This fabric was also great to work with. It hid the stitches really well and didn't shift.  It's also really soft. Picked it up from Joann's.  @mccallpatterncompany #handmadewithjoann
So excited to finally be able to share this awesome skirt. Pockets for days!! The #pattipocketskirt is a must if you appreciate the ability to hold things. Now available from @amynicolestudio. Also, it's specially drafted for petites, so basically meant to be mine.
Accurate representation of yesterday's outfit and mood. These cropped pants have been barely unfinished for a couple weeks and I finally convinced myself to do the handstitched hem. They are an altered version of the Burda pattern I previously used, but with a wide leg and no stitch line down the front.
A few hours ago, I decided I wanted to wear something new tomorrow. So, I made something new. #ogdencami
Slightly cropped t shirt with sneaky panda print (swipe for close up) #memade
In the words of my good friend, "if you don't compliment yourself, who will?" Wearing my first Ogden Cami with a blazer for work. #ogden @truebias
Perfect running tank for showing off the back of your sports bra, and your hard earned muscles  #memade
I have been working on my work wardrobe and put these comfy and cute pants together. They have a stitched crease detail down the center front to make them a little more interesting. Probably one of my favorite makes in awhile and up on the blog. Link in profile.
Day 11: #sewphotohop why do I sew? Because no one makes clothes small enough to fit me. I exaggerate a little... but really I think my closet is more defined by what items happen to fit me rather then my own style. I am on the road to fixing that! This is an old picture, but probably one of the best fitting pieces of clothing I own, and I made it myself. @mccallpatterncompany
I've missed a lot of days, so I'm just going to jump back in. #sewphotohop day 10: on my current project, I attached the flounce to the bodice and lining without finishing the side edge. The worst part is that it took me way too long to realize it. I had practically finished the whole dress, and basted that specific edge twice before I finally realized what I had done (or not done) Guess I'm taking apart part of the bodice.  @houseofpinheiro
Sunday feels. But still trying to be productive and get some sewing done✂  #lazysunday
Day 2 of #sewphotohop: There are a lot of essentials for sewing, but this right here is the real MVP. I would never have made a single wearable garment if it wasn't for this little guy. Also, a shout-out to my iron, who is an expert at disguising my sloppy seams. @houseofpinheiro @larasanner
