Crêpe Myrtle Dress

Somewhat a delayed blog post on this dress, but that’s just how my summer has gone! So much happening day to day that I keep forgetting to blog it all. But I couldn’t go too much longer without posting about this. I’m calling it my “Crêpe Myrtle Dress” because Myrtle is the pattern and the fabric is all about Paris!

This fun fabric is from Allison Beilke and available through Modern Yardage. Haven’t heard of them before? They make digital print on demand fabrics on cotton poplin from their home base in Utah. They make available a large range of textile designs from various designers, and the fabrics are prewashed and ready to be used when they arrive at your doorstep. I had wanted to try them for awhile now, and I got the chance when I won a gift certificate from Craft Passion a few months ago.

Hufflepuff Knight Hoodie - Perfect Pattern Parcel

I’ve been a huge fan of the Perfect Pattern Parcel since it started, so I was very excited to get to join the tour this time around! We got the preview of the bundle, and I immediately gravitated to the Knight Hoodie. It’s been a wishlist pattern for awhile! The picky son agreed, and requested in Hufflepuff colors. A Hufflepuff Knight Hoodie? Rad.

EYMM Think Fall Blog Tour

I’m joining the EYMM Think Fall Blog Tour today to post about the great Off The Shoulder Top & Tunic I sewed up! I have had this pattern for a couple months but still hadn’t had a chance to make it yet with summer weather being so hot. But I’m gearing up for Back to School in a week and a half (yikes!), and this sweater is a perfect layering piece that will be great for upcoming cooler days!EYMM Think Fall Blog Tour
