New on Etsy: Fall Cardigans

Hey everyone!  Today I wanted to share with you my new Fall Cardigans!  They are my favorite part of my F/W 2016 Collection so far.  They are the perfect cozy, drape-y, stylish layering pieces to have in one's closet!

These are available in Black/Tan, Cream, Black/Pink in sizes S/M and L/XL for $50.00 and are available for pre-order right now in my Etsy shop!

These have been my favorite to make, I'll be bringing these to the fall sales I'm doing (click here for shows) along with my Zipper Cowls and Heidi Hoods!

Behind the Scenes With Pure Anada

Photos by Krysten Cathleen Photography

Last week I scheduled a photoshoot for my Etsy shop and had the pleasure of working with a local makeup company, Pure Anada.  The lovely Kristen came down to do our makeup before we headed out to our shoot location, and I couldn't be happier with the outcome!

Here's Heidi's look:

We wanted a super light, summer look with a smooth pink lip.

Along with the powders shown above, we also used Pure Anada's fantastic Natural Mascara in black (one of my personal favorite products), the Berry lip pencil, Fresh Mandarin mineral blush and a translucent pressed powder.

Here's Anne's Look:

With Anne's skin tone Kristen went with a different palette for her eyes with gorgeous creme and yellow shades.

Huge thanks to Pure Anada for doing our makeup for us and making us look so beautiful and fresh!

At The Greenhouse

Skirt from my Etsy Shop, photo by Krysten Cathleen Photography

This week we headed to my local Greenhouse and had the most wonderful photoshoot!  I'm so excited to share these behind the scenes photos with you!

There were flowers galore which was perfect for the Summer clothing we were shooting!

I'll admit, I sorta forgot how hot greenhouses can be, and I am surprised I don't look how I feel in this next photo - I was literally sweating from my eyelids!

Despite the heat it was a really fun shoot and I am even more excited to show you the shots to update my Etsy listings and add the new pieces (2 new kimonos are coming!)

WEST Spring Sale - April 30th

A few weekends ago I was a vendor at the WEST Spring Market in Winnipeg.  It was a super fun day, lots of traffic and people to meet!

Here's our group photo before the event began (all photos by Bixipix Photography)

We had a large crowd for most of the day which was super nice and kept us busy!

Here's my display including one-of-a-kind items as well as my new Kimonos and Pleated Skirts!

Another friend was there, Real Swanky with her delightful needlepoint art!  

I also had a partner in crime, Chrisy from Boutique Sew Chique (check out her ADORABLE aprons!)

This piece was my best seller of the day!  I love the print and the fringe, it's so summery and comfy for Summer!  See more Kimonos here

How are you?

It's been a while.  Life gets so crazy busy and the blog is the first thing to go.  BUT I'm still here, and I'm still sewing away!  I recently made a few Spring Heidi Hoods with fun graphic print lining like this one, and there are more on the way!

Today I'm working on some more Zipper Cowls in fun prints and colors as well, I really like these and I can't believe I haven't made more yet, but they are coming!

I've got a bunch of new info to share with you guys, but not today.  Today I sew.

Now what to watch on Netflix while I sew the day away.....

Wore Stories: Braided Tunic Sweater

Every now and then I take some time to make something for myself.  I had this idea after I saw this beautiful braided look fabric in a stretch knit, and it turned out super cute!

I love mixing textures which is why I wanted to do the bottom of the sleeve in the braided fabric as well.  I have some more of this fabric in grey so we'll see what else I get up to!

Thanks for reading!

Katie Cares Fashion Show 2015

This year I again took part in the annual Katie Cares Fashion Show fundraiser!

My models looking super fine, ready to walk the runway!
It was so much fun, there's so much energy and excitement on the day of the fashion show, backstage is always a flurry with changes and perfecting hair and makeup, it is truly a special time!

This lovely lady filled in last minute when one of my models was sick with food poisoning!

I finished this dress in time to wear it to the show,
My ladies working their stuff on the runway!
This event is put on by the Katie Cares Foundation who raises money to be able to provide toys, games and other loving gifts to kids in the hospital!  Find out more about their charity and the amazing work they are doing to build Katie's Cottage here.
