So, I have to tell you, this dress, this gloriously bright and breezy dress, is the simple result of a rabbit hole and incredible timing. I don't remember exactly how I ended up down said rabbit hole (Shocking, right? Who ever does remember?), but I did and I came across this gorgeous, bright pink crepe … Continue reading A Dress for the “Me” in my Head
Look, friends! Color! Haha Contrary to what one might think scrolling through my past posts for Cali Fabrics, I love color and am a particular sucker for blue and white prints.

Hello, friends! I told you I’d be back with another knit item! And I’m rather in love with this one too 🙂 Now, if I had to guess, I would assume that many of you are familiar with the wonders of French terry. Am I right?

Maybe because they've been a staple in … Continue reading A Year-Round Staple: The OCBD
I seem to be following a theme with my recent makes. Staple pattern, silk fabric, black and ivory design... check, check, and check. The upside to this theme is that it means I’m working on a coordinating handmade wardrobe. Yay! Oh yeah, and one more tick box – it's another long-wanted item that I'm thrilled … Continue reading A classic pencil skirt in black and ivory bouclé

The style is exactly what I wanted and the fabric feels absolutely dreamy to wear. Seriously, multiple times while … Continue reading Sleeveless Grainline Archer Hybrid in Silk Habotai
Hi! I'm Jennifer, or Jenny if you'd like, and I blog at Jenny Homemaker. I currently reside in Atlanta with my fiancé/sounding-board/photographer, Brandon, and fur baby/supervisor/photobomber, CoCo. I started sewing in 2009 after a long-distance move, when it became clear I needed a new hobby. I was fearless, choosing a fully-lined, polyester satin, bubble-hem party dress … Continue reading Hi, I’m Jennifer!
