Nursery update

Getting close now. Just 2 more weeks and we get to meet the little one.


Meanwhile, I've been busy planning and making the nursery for quite a few weeks now. I love the way it all came together. Still waiting on the name letters that are custom order from Etsy seller. I just could not wait for them so I'll just share the pics without them :)

The letters will go on the wall behind the crib.

I made this bedding from Michael Miller fabric.

Bumpers closeup - soft cotton chenille on the inside

Glider - I made the pillow out of super soft minky fabric and also a matching blanket. Daddy added the chair rail.

Last but not the least - Outfit for baby made by mommy

TV armoire converted to baby closet

 

Also made these dresses

Flannel Blankets

Some other unfinished projects are still in the making. Booties & hat, more blankets and dresses, car seat cover, etc. Much to do. Hopefully I'll manage another post before the baby comes :-)

Itch to Stitch blog tour 2018

It's time to sew Itch to Stitch
I am participating in the blog tour again this year. This is a time to sew Itch to Stitch patterns we've been meaning to make for long! I have had my eyes on Crystal Cove Cami since it released and the Angelia Shortswere on my #makenine2018! It was absolutely the easiest decision to participate in the blog tour and pick these 2 patterns. Itch to Stitch patterns are very well drafted, have precise yet detailed instructions. Kennis Wong is well respected in the industry for putting out top notch patterns. It is an absolute pleasure to sew ITS patterns!



One of the wonderful sponsors D&H fabrics sent me this beautiful Moonstone in blue (Atelier Brunette) fabric that I absolutely love! More info on the fabric below - 



Before I go on with the construction details, I want to mention that both the Crystal Cove Cami and Angelia Shorts are on a FLASH SALE for 24 hours only! TODAY ONLY (9/20), you can get Crystal Cove Cami for $8 and and Angelia Shorts

Basically Jalie Blog Tour - Day 2

(This post has been sponsored by Jalie Patterns. There is  a sewalong, rafflecopter, and amazing prizes to win so keep reading! ) 

Majority of what I wear are work/business casual outfits and hence that is majority of what I sew. I am always looking for cute woven tops to add to my rotation. I love making tunic tops especially now that I've learned to fit them. I never liked any store bought ill fitting and stiff feeling tops especially button-downs but now that I can make them and make them to fit, it is a whole different story!

This blog-tour is for basics and I consider woven tops to be part of my daily basic wardrobe so that is what I made for this blog tour.


This is the Rose blouse (Jalie 3881) in a woven crepe fabric I got recently from Sincerely Rylee. The fabric is gorgeous and so easy to work with. 
I chose this top because of the bow. Let's be honest, we love blouses with bows! I have never been able to find a perfect blouse with a f…

Love Notions Lyric Dress

Love Notions Lyric Dress

The dress I've been dreaming of is here :) I've wanted a very simple, button-down dress ever since I made the Jessica dress (blogged here). Jessica dress is great, but I wanted a full bodice so I don't have to wear a strapless bra. Enter, Love Notions Lyric!


How lovely is this dress? Of course, I had to go with my hoarded mustard rayon challis. I use mustard for A-List patterns. Lyric is one of them.

The pattern comes with an A-line skirt and gathered skirt. There are various sleeve options including a very cute bell sleeve. I made the sleeveless version which is finished with a bias tape.






Pattern notes: Made my standard petite adjustment by taking out 1" from the bodice and 1" from the skirt. Took in the waist a little. This was a test version and waist was adjusted slightly after this. I made a B cup bodice. I also did a .5" swayback adjustment to the back bodice.

From a construction standpoint, I like that the pattern has a waist…
