Hey! I made myself another Marlo! I wish I could just leave the post there because I feel like the above could only be construed as good news. But in reality, I made some really stupid mistakes on this Marlo. So no, it's not all good news from here on out. Eventually, and what you'll … Continue reading Waffle Crop Marlo
I made my girls some mini Marlo cardigans. Now, before you get too excited, True Bias does not, as of yet, have a mini version of the Marlo pattern. Unfortunately. I checked first thing when I had the thought to make slouchy cardigans for the girls. If they had the pattern in mini, my job … Continue reading Mini Marlos
Blogging, sewing and wearing me-mades this year has been a little bit of a process for me mostly because of my postpartum journey. However, I've been feeling like I'm getting back to my normal which is awesome. I sew, blog and wear things I make because it typically brings me joy. I'm grateful to be … Continue reading Best and Worst Makes of 2022
Hello, everyone! I, unfortunately, am not the person who typically sends out Christmas cards mostly because I don't put it as high enough of a priority that it actually gets done in a timely manner. However, this year, I realized I didn't have to plan too far ahead, lick envelopes, or wipe the post office … Continue reading Merry Christmas!

When space is limited, why keep a Christmas sweater in my closet only to be pulled out once or twice in December? For me, it's mostly been a space issue. We don't … Continue reading Holiday Mave Skirt
'Tis the season for sweaters, so I made a couple. And I've gotta say that I really love how they both turned out! No new concepts here and I used some very nice fabrics so, all in all, it was an easy win! First I made this blue sweater to test out my pattern hacking … Continue reading A Couple Sweatshirts (Union St. Tee Sweatshirt Hack)
Officially: I love this dress! This is the Davenport Dress by Friday Pattern Company. It is not a new pattern but one that was somehow lost to my knowledge until this last summer. When I unearthed it under someone else's layers of blog posts, I really liked it. And then the more iterations I saw, … Continue reading A Davenport Dress in Liberty London
I apologize for bringing it back 'round to Halloween when it is clearly time to move on. But if you happen to still have candy in your bucket, feel free to pull some out while we focus on costumes for just one more post. Sorrrrry! So Wendy is a very lucky girl because she has … Continue reading McCalls 8251: Girl’s Dress (and Witch Costume)
How often do we pause to acknowledge the fact that our favorite bloggers and influencers have to create their seasonal content well in advance of the actual holiday/season? Like, the night before Halloween I'm sweating and resorting to shoddy workmanship to tie up all my loose ends while those influencers are probably kicking back thinking … Continue reading Star Wars Themed Family Halloween Costumes
I may do a more in depth post on costumes later but if not, Happy Halloween from Han Solo, Chewbacca, the Mandalorian, Rey, and Princess Leia!
