I’ve shared a few snapshots of my workspace before. But seeing as it was (somewhat) pulled together yesterday, I thought I would take a few photos around the room. Believe me - this is a rare moment.
This room is where I do my sewing and jewelry making. It also houses my closet and is where I do my outfit planning. I would also like to say that I blog in here, but lets face it - I do most of that from the couch :). I usually have one of every project going at once, and therefore my workspace usually looks like a tornado has gone through it 99% of the time. Fabric scraps on top of pattern pieces on top of scraps of leather on top of clothes on top of shoes. And I guarantee you there is more than a handful of pins scattered throughout all of that. Such is my life.
But today I am showing you snippets of what seems like a perfectly well kept workspace. I promise by tomorrow it will be back to its norm.
I am one of the least sporty girls you’ll ever meet. I never played sports in high school, I hate running, and I am super uncoordinated.
And my lack of athleticism is obvious when I consider a zip-up hoodie the sportiest thing in my closet. Seriously. I don’t even own a proper pair of sneakers. Unless you count my Converse All Stars covered in sparkly sequins. Those things are pretty rad.

Is there any better combination than a sweet pure white dress paired with tough leather jacket? I didn’t think so.
P.S - happy friday! I’m forgoing the In My life post today, since I’ve already shared my Design Diary projects throughout the week. The feature will be back next week!

I’ve been loving every Megan Nielsen pattern that I’ve tried out for Design Diary. But I think I am in love with Briar. Head on over to Design Diary… I’m over there today showing everyone how to add a ruffle to the hem!

Ever since I started making weekly garments for Design Diary, it has also motivated me to tackle projects in my own to-do pile. The pattern and fabric for this dress has been sitting around for quite some time now, and I finally got around to putting it together. It might be a little late in the season to be making a plaid, flannel dress. But at least the bright colors make up for it and make it spring appropriate.
And now I’m even more excited to finish more garments in my project pile!
