Howdy friends! Sorry for the silence lately. Things have been quite busy here, but I’m super excited to share my new Ginger Jeans with you all today! I’ve been wanting to make my own jeans for quite some time now, and the Closet Case Patterns Ginger Jeans pattern was on my wish-list. I was really… Continue reading Ginger Jeans – take one!
I know I’m supposed to be working on my wearable wardrobe, but sometimes a girl’s just gotta make a bra! You might know that I’ve made several Watson Bras, but I’ve recently decided to try my hand at a bra I might actually wear out of the house (read: containing underwire). I looked a bunch… Continue reading Lavender & Nude Boylston Bra
Last week, I tested a new pattern for Kennis of Itch-to-Stitch Designs. Today, she released the Bonn Shirt and Dress pattern, so I can share my rendition of it! I made the shirt version of the pattern, though I’m totally eyeing the dress version for the future. I chose the 3/4 sleeve, though there are short,… Continue reading Bonn Shirt
I know my last post was about sewing a wearable wardrobe, and I did not include lingerie in those lists. However, I promise I whipped up this set before writing that post… We know I love the ease and simplicity of the Watson Bra. I also really love the details of the Nora Panties, so I… Continue reading Purple Watson Bra & Nora Panties Set
Howdy friends! Over the last few weeks, I’ve been making some toiles and trying to make some sewing plans. I thought I might share what those plans include. The goal of these plans is to make a wearable wardrobe. I’ve been sewing for about a year and a half now. While I’ve really enjoyed almost… Continue reading Making a Wearable Wardrobe
Ever since I made my first Anna dress, I’ve been dying to make another. I wanted a v-neck Anna dress, and I wanted an Anna maxi dress. I thought I might even be ambitious enough to have a thigh-high slit in one of them. I didn’t know if I wanted all of these things in one… Continue reading Whimsical Anna Maxi Dress
In the throes of summer sewing, I thought I might need to make the most summer apparel of them all: a swim suit. I had initially thought about making a bikini Watson set, since it would really just require different fabric and elastic. I decided to go for something that looked like a more “traditional” bikini (what… Continue reading Refuse to Sink – Ohhh Lulu Zooey Bikini
A couple of weeks ago, I was mindlessly scrolling through instagram, enjoying everyone’s Me Made May wears, and I stumbled upon a post from Itch to Stitch requesting pattern testers. I eagerly applied and was super excited to be selected as a pattern tester. The Vienna Tank pattern was released today so now I can show mine off! 🙂
So this year for Me Made May, I decided I was aiming for one me-made item per week. I’ve only been sewing for about a year, and I seem to mostly make dresses and lingerie, so I knew my everyday-wear options were slim. Without further ado, my 2016 Me Made May roundup! The first item… Continue reading Me Made May 2016 Roundup!
Ever since I discovered By Hand London, I’ve seen some amazing renditions of the Anna Dress floating around the internet. I absolutely love my Georgia Dress, but I didn’t really feel drawn to making the Anna Dress for a long time. I don’t know what it was, but I just wasn’t feeling it for a while.… Continue reading By Hand London Anna Dress
