With the temperatures reaching a 104 degrees and heat index of 107 there is nothing that I can think of other than warm weather clothes! Continue reading
What I love about Summer is that fashion is easy and lightweight for the warmer weather. This simplicity translates into simple, chic designs for the season as well. For the month of July, the ThReD and Needles group focused on the “exposed shoulder”. We had submissions for off-the-shoulder, peek-a-boo, and cold shoulder designs. This month we had a lot of participation in the group. Please check out the EXPOSED SHOULDER projects from July HERE.
Oh my gosh! We had AMAZING participation with this month’s challenge!!! The challenge for the month of June was STRIPES for the ThReD and Needle sewing group. We had a wide range of stripe fabrics and design varieties. Stripes ranged from abstract to chevron to variegated to animal stripes…all of them absolutely beautiful!

I recently took a trip to the San Francisco/Bay Area. If you have read my “ABOUT ReDpants”, you may know that I moved to the Bay Area immediately after graduating from college. I moved there to start my career in retail buying and lived there for nearly nine years. For me this trip was like going home. I was able to visit all of my favorite shopping (especially fabric) and eating spots. Continue reading
What are your thoughts on the pom-pom trend this Spring/Summer? I think that the trend is great…but it is just that, a trend! It’s definitely not a trend worth investing a great deal of money. I am showing how I made my designer inspired, re-fashioned pom-pom shoes.
I am not sure how other bloggers with small children do it, but it is hard to get someone to take pictures! Between my husband’s and my schedule, I sometimes have to alternate between him, my mom, and one of my cousins to take pictures. It can get frustrating and honestly tempting to quit blogging. I was so desperate one day that I asked my SIX year old to take some snapshots. You can guess how those turned out! Between him wanting to play Panda Pop on my phone and with the attention span of a fly…the pictures were a mess! The sweetheart that he is, he tried!
Hello everyone! I am sharing a dress that I made recently for my cousin’s wedding. If you are familiar with some of my other post, you know that I often work until the wee-hours of the night finishing a project. I made this dress the night before her wedding and finished, through my tired eyes and hands, at about 3am that morning!
The group project for the month of April/May was all about creating the “not your average classic white shirt”. Some details that we played with were adding some sleeve interest, adding a peplum, adding an oversized bow, and creating the perfect tunic. Check out the projects from the women in the ThReD and Needles sewing group HERE.
