If you aren’t aware, Vogue has recently re-released the DVF Wrap Dress pattern and I just had to get it. It has not, and apprently, won’t go on sale. This means that I paid full price for this pattern. Yes, shocker. I don’t usually purchase patterns at full price and always wait for the sales, but I had to get this pattern. I made this dress as part of my partnership with Fabric Mart Fabrics. I guest post on their blog every other first of the month. Since my post came out April 1st, I decided this was going to be my birthday dress since it’s my birthday month! I’ve decided to celebrate with a ..read more

It’s Hispanic Heritage Month and I found it fitting for me to share my Bomba y Plena inspired look that was featured in the April 2023 issue of Sewn Magazine.

Hi Guys! So, I haven’t been the best at being a good YouTuber. I actually hadn’t posted on my YouTube channel in over a year. What was the hold up? I have actually recorded MANY videos over the year and even started to edit a few of them, but never finished. I decided that I need to get back to it and so I recorded a video and got to editing. I got to editing this video and I did it over the course of 3 days because I wasn’t feeling well. I finally finished editing the video and as I was about to upload it to YouTube, my IMovie closed and everything was gone when I opened IMovie back up. I was ..read more
