Cherry Blossom Evening Bag

This is a bag I made to enter in The Independent Handbag Designer Awards. I interned with a handbag designer when I was in school and she always told me to enter this competition, and I finally did this year! About two months ago I decided I would enter, but I still didn’t know what

I was waiting for some nice weather to take these pictures outside but instead we got two huge snow storms and theres a couple feet of snow still out there. So much for the unusually hot Spring we were supposed to have! Maybe if I start sewing my summer wardrobe the weather will get the

Silk Slip – Vogue 8888

This is a bias slip dress I made for my mom. I’ve always sort of shied away from bias projects, they just seemed a bit daunting. I worked on a few at work recently and finally got up the courage to try one on my own! Me and my mom are wayyyy different sizes but

I was so excited to make this shirt! I got the fabric on my trip to London, England last year from Joel and Son. They have the most incredible collection of fabrics I have ever seen! If you ever get a chance to go, I definitely recommend it! Being from Canada, and the with the

Bohemien Maxi Dress

One of my favourite clothing brands is Free People, and this dress was definitely inspired by the brand! I made this dress using Simplicity 1939, a Cynthia Rowley design. I found this pattern for 1$ at Fabricland since it was an old pattern, but I think it’s still totally in style! I am definitely feeling
