I'm trying to live in this mock turtleneck but it's the most beautiful white so I'm also scared the whole time I'm wearing it that I'm going to get it dirty haha. So maybe its time to make another color!

Snagged this sweater before San Diego finally decided to catch up to the fall season, so as you can imagine it sat in my closet for a bit. This might be one of the softest sweaters that I have even owned!  I believe it is this sweater but they currently do not carry it in white. I've been living in these new 9FIVE glasses that I bought at their store in North Park. I think they are a good alternative to the ever popular Ray-Ban Round Metals that everyone has been wearing.

As I've been venturing into the gym more and more, the idea of sewing my own activewear has crossed my mind. What worries me is being able to find great fabrics that are opaque & the perfect thread tension to make squatting possible. Anyone conquered this? Maybe I should just stick to sports bras for now.

I got this beautiful dress from H&M (which I can't seem to find online) for a wedding over the weekend. Great price & beautiful fabric, also has some boning in the bodice of the dress. I found that a great detail for a dress that is under $80! I ended up hemming the dress so if you find it online it will be longer than mine.

I love window shopping for fabric on Etsy! I've been eyeing some knits for quite a bit because I would love to make some wardrobe staples. Tees & turtlenecks. I did just buy this melange rib sweater knit from BlackBird fabrics and I can't wait for it to arrive. Tell me your favorite t-shirt sewing patterns below!

I made another Wrap Dress with Sash by BurdaStyle! I think this is version number 4? I've done black, coral pink, spanish floral, and now stripes. Yes, San Diego has is still under the impression that it is the middle of summer. I yearn to be able to wear a sweater!! 

This fabric is from Joanns but I can't seem to find it on their website, it is some sort of crepe with 5% spandex. Walked in looking for a ribbed knit, came out with the stripes at $4 a yard. Not many different details on this dress, I omitted the darts on this one because, well, I forgot. It ended up being just fine because when I tie the sash I like to pull it out a bit, so the darts are sort of an unnecessary step for my style. Since I cropped this dress it sews up quite fast. If you are looking for an easy afternoon sewing project, this is it!
