From the Archives: White Boat Neck Blouse


Now that the weather is getting warmer, I have been taking out some of my first garments that I made last year.  One that was super easy to put together is this Simplicity 1364 Vintage Jiffy Pattern.  I remember loving that it was a vintage pattern and how the packaging advertises that the top is made with just 3 pattern pieces.  How easy is that?  The stye of this top works with today's trends: white, vintage, and embroidered fabric (see below). 

Two Pretty Isla Dress


I'm getting my summer wardrobe ready for the upcoming intense Texas heat!  I'm excited to make cute little dresses that I hope to wear rather than shorts and a t-shirt.  I found this adorable Isla pattern from Made By Rae (I've blogged about MBR before here) and just love the shape and ease of it.  It has cute capped sleeves, fitted bodice and gathers at the waist. 

Step Hem Denim Trend


Have you seen this step hem trend around on denim jeans?  It's jeans that are cut off with the back leg hem about an inch or so longer.  In general, I love the distressed denim trend that's been around so I really like this different take on the distressed look.
