Have you been won over yet by the big headband trend happening this past year? As someone who used to have a handmade hair accessories business, I've always been team headbands. I just don't remember to stick them on my head very often. I made a new stack this week though, and I am ready to fix that!
I made two styles of headbands for this post-- two styles I've been seeing and wanted to try my hand at copying. The padded headband-- which I love from...
When I saw that Measure Fabrics had this pixelated fabric I knew it had to be mine. I mean.... I'd already made a crown that went with it, so it deserved to be worn on MY body, and live in MY home.
See??? They were meant to be together!!
......But then I realized that I actually wanted glasses!!!! I wanted them to be a little closer in color scheme, so I got to work with...
Oh my gosh, why does that girl look so happy?!? She looks like she's at a super fun party for people who love bright colors!

Oh hello beautiful lines! Hello skirt that fits like a pair of jeans but looks like a million bucks. I was so lucky to test the Salida Skirt by True Bias a couple months ago and I have been dying to share these photos! (But if you want to really see this thing in action head to my instagram to watch my dance video!)
I made three versions of this skirt and I want to share what I learned that might be of help to you, you sewing maven you.
*Paired here with my hacked Grainline Studio Morris Blazer (I changed...
I have been wanting to make the Washi Dress Pattern ever since I had my old blog (so its been a LONG time), but for whatever reason didn't. I finally bought the pattern right before I had my 4th baby with the intention of doing a nursing hack like I'd seen Alina do. But.... it never happened.
Fast forward to last summer when I was visiting Jill on our epic cross-country trip. We loaded up our 4 kids (each) and drove to Texas to meet up and sew. Yes, we each drove around 22 hours one way just to hangout with...
