I am so excited to share Simple Life Pattern Company’s newest pattern: Patricia’s Boho High Low Top and Dress. Like all Simple Life Patterns, Patricia is LOADED with options. Layered printing, several sleeve and tank options, dress and top options, dramatic or moderate skirt option. Patricia can be made in knit or woven and looks amazing in lightweight flowy wovens such as voile, rayon, and thin jersey knits. Fun Fact: The Patricia is named after talented fabric designer and Art Gallery Fabrics owner, Pat Bravo. Continue Reading
I have been so excited to write a blog post about these two patterns and I finally can!
When I went to Quilt Market last fall, I had the pleasure of meeting Lindsey from Sew to Grow Patterns. Lindsay is a talented pattern designer and sewing instructor living in Australia. I love following her Instagram to see where she will go next.
When Art Gallery Fabrics asked me to sew up some women’s rayon looks for their Fusions lookbook, I contacted Lindsay since I immediately thought of her beautiful Bondi Top as suitable for flowy fabrics like Art Gallery’s newest substrate rayon. I used the Millefiori print designed by Pat Bravo Designs. I think this is actually the first WOVEN top I’ve made for myself on my sewing journey and it’s love! Continue Reading
Spring is in the air!
The birds are chirping and the grass is starting to perk up a bit after being beneath a blanket of snow for nearly 5 months. One of our family’s favorite things to do during the warmer months is go on family bike rides. I think there is something so timeless about cycling as a family activity.

I love so many prints, so be sure to check them all out! I especially have my eye on those turtles and camping themed print! Continue Reading
Hola! I am proud to be a stop on the Fiesta Fun Fabrics blog tour today!
Last fall, I had the privilege of attending Quilt Market with Simple Life Pattern Company. Right before market, I started seeing sneaks of the Fiesta Fun fabric line by Dana Willard. I drooled over the swatches and waited anxiously for this line to be released.
I have a secret.
I suspect that many of you share the same secret.
I buy pretty fabric. And then I hoard it. Because what if I make something with it but then a pattern that would have suited it better comes along?? WHAT THEN??
I bought a bunch of the Michael Miller Magic wovens on preorder, and they’ve sat in my stash ever since. But then I received a copy of Ellie and Mac‘s Be Confident Tunic and it screamed for the whimsy that this gorgeous Magic fabric provided. Continue Reading
Hi all! Today we have some news for you – E+M has joined her sister pattern shop Petitboo and we have a special coupon code to share! As part of the re-branding blog tour, I sewed up the Rose Dress.
This simple dress is perfect for all those gorgeous wovens that are hiding away in your stash! I used a pink and white checked cotton from Riley Blake that just seems so cheery and perfect for spring! The dress itself is comfortable and passes the ‘twirl test’ yet is easy to dress up for Easter and other special occasions. Continue Reading
