Inspiration for all things pretty ♥

Hello Again, Lovelies...

There have been many personal events going on in my life this past month and will continue into these upcoming holiday months as well, so I apologize for my absence. For the meantime I wanted to share some past designs I am incredibly proud of and love beyond words. Let's start reminiscing a bit shall we? :)

I made this ivory peplum top with an exposed zipper from a pretty fabric I found from Walmart for only $1 a yard! Yes! Peplums are adorable.

You can find more photos of each design by clicking on the title of the item!


This cropped bustier was the first top/design I made in over 2 years after taking a long break from sewing. I made it just last year and I was proud to see I did not lose my touch!


Just a simple, flowy lace top. I had left over lace fabric so I decided to make something simple for everyday wear this past summer.


Accessories can be so expensive, so I opt to make my own most of the time. I made this gold sequin collar necklace last winter. One of my favorite necklaces because it goes with any outfit and adds the perfect amount of sparkle and shine.


A beautiful fabric flower head crown made from lace fabric and window curtain scraps. Originally when I started this was suppose to be a floral statement necklace, but as I went along it became a flower head crown by accident. I have to say it turned out for the better. :)


Anything with pearls and lace, you got me! I am obsessed with this pearls and lace collar necklace.


This maxi skirt tutorial became surprisingly successful on YouTube and I am extremely flattered! Definitely one of the easiest skirts I've made thus far.


I was in a high waisted craze this past summer so this high waisted mint shorts recycled from an old silk pillow case was no exception. Every pair of shorts I made were high waisted, but this pair was my favorite because of the gorgeous mint color.


This ivory lace babydoll dress was recycled from an old, thrifted window curtain-- and you would have never known if I had not told you. I have an extreme addiction to lace dresses or anything lace in general if you had not noticed. Haha. I still have yet to wear this number out, but oh when I do, it shall be so ravishing!


This front slit lace maxi dress was upcycled from an old, thrifted window curtain as well. Maxis are so beautiful and feminine-- I will always adore them.


This two-toned gold vintage sweetheart dress was upcycled from two thrifted pillow cases. Gold and peach-- the best color combination, ever!


Chiffon is such a gorgeous fabric to work with so I went ahead and made this peach chiffon maxi skirt/dress. The versatility of it is amazing.


I absolutely adore this white pleated tea party dress. The pleats and low back makes this dress so fun. Girls night out, anyone?


I had a request to make this pink long sleeve shift dress. I feel like a little hippie when I wear this, and I love it.


This taupe bow dress was an alteration, but I adore the vintage inspiration of it.


I hope you enjoyed this random and quick jot down memory lane. It was nice to look at past designs and see how far I have come in the past year of sewing. I hope to start a little project today since I have not sewed anything in about a month, and because I feel like a part of me is missing!

Which designs are your favorite, and what would you like for me to make in the future? I would LOVE to hear some suggestions!

Have a fabulous day, all! :)

  1. the lace pieces are my favourites- you're so talented and patient to do stuff like this I really admire you for it because I just wouldn't be able to ever think of doing it! It'd be interesting to see you recycle some more old finds like curtains or pillowcases. xxx
