I purchased the Felicity dress pattern several years ago during a Black Friday sale. I’ve sewn up one version in a solid yellow mystery fabric from my stash but it has been extremely difficult to get good pictures of it. Something about all the yellow throws off the lighting of my camera.

I am sewing up a second Jennifer Lauren Handmade Felicity dress out of some gorgeous fabric I received in the last round of Fibre Share. I haven’t blogged about the first version because it is yellow which, I have discovered, is incredibly hard to photograph!

I have decided to change things up a little. Instead of my usual "finished garment" post, I am going to share some "work-in-progress" photos. I've noticed that I am constantly trying to come up with a new sewing project in order to have a blog post. The problem? I am finding my wardrobe to be full of garments that I made merely for the purpose of blogging rather than something I actually want/need. . .

I just want to share a few more "behind-the-scenes" posts. I've decided to start a series of blog posts called: "What Am I Making?" The goal of this series is to celebrate the joy of the creative process. Read More
The Make Nine Initiative was started by Rochelle who blogs over at Lucky Lucille. (You can read all the details at this blog post.) In a brief summary: the goal of the Make Nine Initiative is to encourage creativity by choosing nine sewing or knitting patterns/projects (or any other hobbies) that you want to make throughout 2017. One of the benefits of this "challenge" is it's total flexibility. If a pattern that you have selected at the beginning of the year becomes less appealing as time passes, you can simply switch it out. Read More
