Phew. For this post, I did a lot of sewing, all in the name of my best gal pals for easily one of the 👯♀️👯♀️ most fun days of the year – Galentine’s Day!

Wowowow, this month has flew by! It’s been a big month of growth for me – I hit 100 followers on Instagram at the beginning of January but by the end I had just over 400! It blows my mind that every time I post something, there are around 400 people that get to see what I put into the world 🌎. Thank you so much for your support!
What I made this month:
Fabric: red gingham cotton from Joann Fabrics
Time: 2 hours
Thoughts: My first midi skirt, love the fun notch on the waistband!
Would I make again? YES! So many fabrics would go well with this skirt 😍
As somewhat of a novice sewist, I’ve found that the easiest handmade gift during the holidays is definitely pajama pants. They are extremely forgiving when it comes to mistakes + super stretchy and comfy!
Joann Fabrics had 70% off all flannel fabrics during the week of Thanksgiving, so I decided that it was now or never! I took on the task of making 5 sets at once – for my parents, brother, boyfriend, and myself if there was extra fabric (there’s always extra fabric if you try hard enough 🙂 )
Once I got home with all my new flannel and thread, I realized how horrible it would be to sew 5 sets of the same exact pattern without tossing my sewing machine out of the window. I had heard of batch sewing in the depths of Instagram so I set out to do this for myself. To start, here’s a link to the pdf pattern I used – 5 out of 4 FREE pajama pants pattern!
I took a lot of risks, but here are my tips! Continue reading “A Bunch of Batch Sewing Tips”
Next up is my new favorite pattern – the York Pinafore from Helen’s Closet. After perusing the #yorkpinafore tag on Instagram for weeks, I finally took the plunge. Definitely check it out for inspo!
