  • Completed: The Macaron Redux Dress Posted on February 18, 2013

    Fiiiiinally right?!  heh Well, I’m as happy as can be that this dress is finally completed.  It’s been 2 years in the making and is my first finished object in 2013.

  • Macaron Bodice: Pre and Post Lining Posted on February 12, 2013

    This is a quick post just to show you the inside of the bodice, pre- and post-lining.

  • Macaron Peplum: Part 2 Posted on February 7, 2013

    I’m back once again with more peplum-icious images for you.

    Today’s blog post should get me one step closer to catching you guys up on what I did over the weekend with my Macaron dress hack. I am head-over-heels in love with peplums.  I’m not sure you all feel the peplum love like me, which I should state is “second” over my love of bows;… Read More »

  • Picking up the Macaron Redux Dress Posted on February 4, 2013

    It’s been AGES since I’ve even contemplated working on my Macaron Redux dress.  And as more time had passed, I’ve grown quite wary of the project since I really had no idea if the bodice even still fit me.  It is the month after Christmas and yummy holiday treats after all… So before even picking up… Read More »

  • Completed Applique Seams and Darts Posted on July 13, 2011
