So my hiatus is finally almost over as spring finals are done this week! The warm weather has definitely been putting me back in the clothing sewing mood and I have some plans lined up for some new projects. In the meantime, here are some things I have been working on lately.
The start quilt is actually for a friend but I am loving the fabrics and the mint background. The fabric line is Glitz by Michael Miller and is GORGEOUS! It has a slight shimmer to it and the colors are so soft.
The skirt is also something I am so excited about because it is finally warm enough to wear! I made another one with Lilly Pulitzer mint julep fabric which was perfect for the Derby this past weekend (my favorite holiday).
Happy Hump Day!
Sorry I have been a slacker. Hopefully with finals happening soon and classes going on a summer schedule life will be a little less crazy.
In all the craziness I have gotten a little sewing done. Here are two projects I have finished:
Next up is finishing making a Lilly Pulitzer mint julep skirt before the Derby!
Over the past year I have become mildly obsessed with elephants. When I was trying to move to DC I sewed a little stuffed elephant for good luck, and the next day I got a job offer at where I work now!
I have also always been in love the Lilly Pulitzer’s Tusk in the Sun pattern and when I realized you can buy Lilly fabric online I knew I had to make something with the fabric. Recently April Rhodes released a Riding Peplum/Party Dress pattern. I love her clear instructions and adorable styles so I decided to try the pattern out with my newly acquired fabric. The dress isn’t quite done yet, but I’m just too excited not to share.
I already have a second dress planned with this pattern despite not being done with the first. Here is a little preview.
Have a Happy Monday!
I have decided I cannot take one more day of this freezing cold weather. Here are some fabulous finds courtsey of J. Crew and the Factory for my boycotting the cold wardrobe!

Y’all I am in love! I saw this dishtowel online last weekend and ran down to Anthropologie as soon as they opened their doors. This towel will never touch a dish and I am trying to figure out the perfect wall to hang it on in my new place!
