Jade aka the Silver lining


Let tell you about this cute Jade dress. This dress started out as a failed blazer.  Before I added the lining the blazer was so amazing, but once I added the lining it was not cute at all. To make it worse I top stitched it all over with the lightening stitch 😱. If you [...]

Hepburn/ Sweetheart Mash


When I saw this fabric I knew it would a be challenge for me. The base of this fabric is Ponte, which is a structured fabric. I don’t wear or use Ponte often because it’s thick and can get a little hot while wearing down here in South Florida. The print is pretty and something [...]

Lately I have been seeing this cute oversized sweater everywhere. When I say everywhere, I mean everywhere. At Target, at TJ Max, in ads on Facebook, pins on Pinterest. Every where I look there it was. sadly, I couldn’t find a pattern to recreate it. Then as always Made for Mermaids came through yet again. [...]


Leopard Deanna


I don’t know how I have not made the Deanna dress from Made for Mermaids before. This is such a flattering dress and such a super quick sew. I used the Fab Clique Fabric Shoppe Leopard French Terry, which was a dream to work with. The dress length with short sleeves was the perfect choice [...]

Leopard Print Palazzo Pants


So I’ve been wanting to make a new pair of palazzo pants, and I wanted to make pair from Pattern for Pirates. I had everything but the fabric for them, but I just wasn’t inspired by anything on hand. When I saw that Knitpop had restocked their Brown leopard print double brushed polyester, I was [...]

It also includes different sleeve lengths and also a cute ruffle detail on two options. They give you different necklines to choose as well. The back gives [...]




I’ve been looking for cute mock turtleneck pattern for a while now. I could only find paper patterns for it or kids’ pdf pattern. I tried the biggest size of a kids pdf pattern and it didn’t turn out as I had hoped. So when Pattern for Pirates put out a testing call for a [...]
