Cozy Cardigan With McCall's 7476


It's 27 degrees here in Austin right now which means the entire city has shut down.  Which is fine with me because I get to put a log in the fire place and update my blog, hopefully get some sewing done too.  Today I am showing off this easy to make cardigan.  What inspired me first to make this was the fabric. 

Southwest Chic With Butterick 6486


Holy moly!!  When I came here to write this blog post, I realized that I didn't post anything in December!  Well, that just shows how fast that month flew by for me.  Not only was it busy with getting ready for the holidays but my birthday is very close to Christmas and I worked on my birthday dress for most of the month.  I can't wait to show it off here, which will be very soon.  In the mean time, I'm here talk about this pretty top I made back in November.  It's this beautiful terracotta color and a Southwestern style design by Art Gallery Fabrics.

Dark Denim Tunic


It's great writing a post here after a nice Thanksgiving break.  I didn't get a whole of sewing done over the break but did you see my #memade top that I posted on my Instagram?  I just love how it turned out and will be posting about it here very soon.  Anyway, on to this great chambray tunic that I sewed up for the fall.

Fall Floral Knit Tunic


I just love making all types of cold weather clothes lately, however I just wish it would stay cold long enough here in Austin so I can wear them!  Well, as I'm sewing all these pretty new fall/winter makes, I am trying to keep in mind layers!  Yes, since the weather here is so up and down I want to try to be able to have things that would work with or without a jacket, wearing something underneath or have it look cute with a light layer over it.  Plus comfort is always key.
