Doggie Backpacks

I'm starting on Christmas presents, but can't post any pictures until after Christmas :( But considering none of my nieces or nephews have no idea how to use the internet, I can at least post their gifts. I made EIGHT of these pups for all the little kiddos in my family. Each one of them has a different inside pattern that reminds me of them. They're kinda special cause it's all vintage fabric from my sisters Great-Grandmother-in-law. They were pretty easy, but took some time since I had to make so many. So I have a huge weight off my shoulders by finishing these!

Twist Wrap Dress

I'm not crazy about  the color, but this dress is so fun that I think I  can live with it. I saw  this dress HERE. It was so cool so I made on for myself :)
It's pretty much a skirt with two really long pieces of fabric attached to the front. It was pretty easy and I want to make more now in some prettier colors!
The options are endless! Pretty much love these.

Goodbye Autumn...

A few days ago went to the Mesa (My favorite place ever!) To look at the last of the fall colors before it dumped snow up there. I love fall so much I wish it would stay all year.
It's magical.
And then there's my parents...

Mushroom Hunting

A few weeks ago I went mushroom hunting with my parents and nephew. We didn't really know what ones we safe to eat so we ended up just looking and taking pictures. It was fun seeing how excited my nephew got when he would find some. We missed the best of the season, but I'm glad we were able to go see them before the snow hit.

My New Best Friend

She doesn't have a name yet, but I love her!

Having a dress form has already helped me so much. I don't know what I ever did without one. My cousin picked it up for me at a yard sale for 20 bucks! I was so excited when I got it! And I'm still just as excited! She's gonna get lots of use.

Chevron Dress

This is my first dress I've made where I didn't use any kind of pattern! It was actually super fun! and way less aggravating then stupid patterns that I can never understand. Haha! I'm excited to see where this new journey takes me and to see how many other things I can make without patterns. And I must say I don't know what I ever did without a dress form...

Here's some pictures I took of it real quick. (next time I will get someone to take them. It's way too difficult by myself with a manual focus!)

And I NEVER wear lipstick. So I had to prove that I actually wore it ...once.

First post!

Hi there! If you're reading this right now, thank you for stopping by! I've started this new blog to mainly follow my dress making adventures. But it will probably include some odd and ends as well.

First I have to say that I'm brand new with this whole dress making thing. I've only made a few and they were super basic beginner dresses. So as a beginner please don't judge me too harshly... haha. Although, I would LOVE feedback and advice!! I really want to learn what I'm doing wrong or if there's easier/better ways to go about things.

I would introduce myself a little more, but if you're at all curious you can go to my "about" section.

I'm so excited for this journey! Thanks for joining me <3
