Janelle Skirt by Style Sew Me

Right after Christmas I got an exciting surprise in my inbox – Eryn from Style Sew Me asked me to participate in the Janelle Skirt Blog Tour. I was so smitten and so excited that I said yes without thinking twice about it. Janelle Skirt is not your typical pencil skirt. She is very form fitting, hits you below your knee and features a high mid thigh opening. This skirt screams sexiness and confidence, yet manages to remain very classy and elegant. Just look at Eryn modeling it, it truly is not for the faint at heart!

I am not a pencil skirt type of gal. Don’t get me wrong, I love them! I think they look fantastic, but I have not worn one for a few years. I kept entertaining an idea of making a pencil skirt for a while, but I was yet to start on one. Janelle jumped out at me as a perfect opportunity to go ahead and finally make one.

The Seamstress Tag

I was tagged with The Seamtress Tag by Jenny from Ms. Jenny Homemaker. I first read about the tag on Sarah’s blog Sew Sarah Smith and I loved the idea. Sarah even asked me to write on it but I got busy with renos and successfully forgot about…

I think the tag is a great way to get to know your sewing friends a little better and bring the sewing community closer together. So without further ado, here are my answers to the 12 questions.

Creamy Molly Top and Bleached Morgans

Happy New Year everyone!! I hope you had a nice break and some good family time. Our holidays involved travelling, some couch time and lots of family time. I completely unplugged and took a long break from social media and a break from sewing. I have been trying to catch up with my blog reading and instagram drooling over all the fabulous and inspiring makes everyone has been pumping out.

I also have a few blog posts in the queue that I need to get out there, so I may just pump them out  in the next couple weeks. I took the photos a few weeks ago and even wrote up the posts, but didn’t think to schedule them… oops! Take this post for example, the photos were taken almost a month ago. My hair has gone fully blond now, so I’d better get this out here before I start confusing everyone with my extreme hair changes. So, let’s jump right in.

Velvet Lark

I love having a dedicated photo space! It doesn’t need to be anything fancy, even in our old space I had a beautiful spot in my kitchen where the light was just perfect and the background seemed pretty great. All I had to do was have my tri-pod nearby and ready to snap the photo whenever the mood was right. I am very lazy after all.

I am very happy that in our new house I found this empty wall that I painted and used some leftover construction garbage for the “floor”. Now I can snap photos whenever I like and they actually come out okay. I really don’t like playing “model” and doing a long photo-shoot with outfit changes. Having something that enables me to snap a photo when I am ready at whatever time of the day regardless of the natural light is essential for my blog and instagram.  So now, if only I could figure out a way to train one of my animals to write blog posts for me… then I would really have this blogging thing nailed down. Anyways, let’s talk about the dress!

Slim Leg Alyse Pant

This post is long over due. So long, that I have actually already made three pairs of these pants and managed to wear one out to the point where the fabric piles and the pants are worn in and are extremely comfortable. I should probably make a new pair to replace those. A couple nights ago I managed to make yet another pair of Alyse Slim Leg Pants and then I managed to find a few minutes to photograph them. See what happens when renos are not occupying all my spare time? These pants are rather easy to make and if you’ve made pants before, they will come together in no time.
