  1. Hi, Tabitha. I just found your blog. I am excited to read that you were once in the Air Force. I am Active Duty Army. I have been in 19 years. Next year I will retire. I am the same philosophy that you have. Whatever I do next is going to be about me! Last year, I began sewing and making jewelry. This year I became interested in making furniture and decorating. I want to fulfill a lifelong dream of going to culinary arts school. So many options! I look forward to reading more of your posts.


    • HI!!!! That is so amazing. Live your dreams. You sound very creative. You are dipping into everything. You should start a blog and use it as a diary to document everything you are dipping into. That is great and sounds like fun. Thanks for stopping by. :)


  2. Hi Tabitha, just come across your blog by way of your post on McCalls showing off your amazingly beautiful spring peplum. I definitely will be following your bog for inspiration and your tutorials.


  3. This blog is great and I’ve always wanted someone to teach me how to make cute clothes. I’m so happy I found you where on earth have you been?! lol. Today I just did my own altering and it felt great. I’m so excited about sewing more things.

  4. I absolutely love your style and your inspiration for doing what you do. I am in the process of creating my own fashion line that is catered to women who strive to be modest but I have never went to fashion school and I’m in college to be an animal physiologist lol but I have always wanted to have my own clothing line. I’ve been designing since I was 12. Anywho! On to my question:) Are you a self taught seamstress? How did you go about getting your name out there and how long did it take?


  5. Tab! I had an instagram account, @sewsincity. i deleted that, and i am researching starting a blog. I want to ask you a few things, if you could give me your email address that would be awesome!
