Wanna See Our Engagement Photos?

On a very hot day last month, we met our future wedding photographer, Shannon at Disneyland and had our engagement photos taken. I was really hoping to take our photos on the Small World ride, since that's where we got engaged and it has a lot of happy memories for us, so I was really glad when Shannon agreed to my idea and was just as excited about it as I was. We planned it a few months in advance hoping to choose a time when the park was less crowded and when the day came, it was over 100 degrees in Anaheim! Needless to say, I was worried about looking like a big, sweaty mess, but Shannon did an amazing job and they came out really nice despite the insane heat! Thank you Shannon!

Sewing Project: The Blue Bow Dress (Simplicity 1207, 1955)

Hi friends! I'm sharing one of my favorite new projects today. I started this dress several months ago with some great light blue cotton I picked up at The Fabric Store during our blogger meetup. I loved the color and the way the weave gives it a nice texture.

Retro Gathered Skirt Tutorial and $100 Hart's Fabric Giveaway!

Hi guys! I'm so excited to share this post today! I recently created a tutorial for the Hart's Fabric blog on how to make this simple gathered skirt. It has a retro vibe with a cute contrasting hem and waistband and I used a couple of fabrics from the amazing Cotton and Steel line (that I'm a teensy bit obsessed with). This skirt is fit for your own body using your measurements, is easy to make in just a few hours and perfect for those last few weeks of summer!

And the Wedding Dress Pattern Hunt Continues...

         Yesterday, I went with my mom, my best friend, my cousin, and my future mother-in-law to look at wedding dresses. As you may know, I fully intend to make my own wedding dress, but I was advised by my sewing teacher and my mom to try on different styles before committing to one to sew, so I scheduled a couple of appointments at the few local bridal shops.
