I don't attend too many blogger events, but the Neiman Marcus Trend Previews are always my favorite. It's always great to see familiar faces and this is one event that I know I will see quite a few! It also doesn't hurt to look at all the expensive clothes ;)

Sharing some of my favorites from Yings shop! As you know I use her kits often, and her pretty product images keep me wanting more haha! I can't believe it's been a little over a year since I sewed up my first underwire bra. Can't wait to make more~

I get asked so often about my sewing machines so I figured I'd put together a mini review. Watch me ramble below!!

Not too long ago I stopped into Urban Outfitters and tried on this dress. It's not often that I try on a midi dress and fall in love with it. But I couldn't get this one out of my head for some reason. While trying the dress on I couldn't help but think that I could make it using my new dress pattern that I've been using. This is now the third time making the dress, following my light blue and navy polka dot dresses.
I had a bit of a scare right after I finished sewing this dress. I had just finished inserting a skirt lining when I noticed a tiny bit of blood near the last button on the bottom of the skirt. "I'm bleeding???" I had somehow cut my knuckle, didn't feel it, and gotten it on the dress all within 30 seconds of my final fitting. After a quick google search & hydrogen peroxide dousing later, there was no trace of it. I can't believe I saved it!

This fabric is from Joanns and was pretty expensive, but it was so soft. Good thing coupons exist! It's a linen blend that has a bit of stretch to it. I should have made the button band wider, interfaced the bodice facing (how do I always forget???) as well as line the bodice. There is always next time!!

I held onto this pattern for almost a month before cutting into it. Most of the time I can't wait, but I accidentally ordered the wrong kit from Madalynnes shop. I ordered a kit for 8436, which is gorgeous but I realllly wanted to make a strapless bra. I wasn't sure I had all the right fabrics but yesterday I finally said "oh well" and cut into it. I can safely say that everything worked out! I did have to run to the store to get boning.


It's not the most perfect stitching, but I still love it! The only issue is that it is a tad too small in the cup, still wearable. I have enough fabric to cut and sew another. I really loved this bra, can't wait to make a ton of them!
