Howdy friends! It’s been a while, but I will hopefully be blogging several of my summer makes over the next few weeks. One of my more recent makes is a Helen’s Closet Ashton Top. Helen describes this top as “an all-season wardrobe staple that is easy to sew and style”. I’d say that’s true! I’m… Continue reading Ashton Top from Helen’s Closet in Cotton Voile
Howdy friends! I’m still alive – I promise! I’ve been pretty busy the last few months, and as a result, have not been sewing a lot. Even though sewing is the thing that helps me relax, it seems to be the first thing to go when I get busy. I am in the midst of… Continue reading All But Dissertation: A Jelly Roll Quilt
It’s apparently supposed to be fall here, but we’re back into the 90s today. I’m actually a bit happy, because now I’ll have more time to wear this cat-tastic Lago Tank! (I’m actually wearing it as I type!) The Lago Tank is a FREE pattern from Itch to Stitch*. I’ve sewn up a few Itch… Continue reading A Cat-tastic Lago Tank!
Hello again, friends! I’m back today with a summer staple outfit: comfy shorts and a great tank! Specifically, Chi-Town Chinos and another Ogden Cami. I made both of these earlier this summer, and they both came with me on my trip to Europe! This was my first time making the Chi-Town Chinos, so I started… Continue reading Chi-Town Chinos (& Another Ogden Cami)
Hi friends, I’m finally back, with an Ogden Cami Dress!! I was hoping to be much better at blogging this summer, but life got the best of me. I had the opportunity to travel for work, and continued wandering around the world after the conference for fun. Between this and other school projects, I had… Continue reading Ogden Cami Dress Hack
Hello again friends! It’s been a while, but school is out for the year so it’s sewing time! Today I’m back with a third pair of Ginger Jeans! I’ve had this pair in the plans for quite some time, and I’m so glad I’ve finally gotten to it! This pair of Ginger Jeans is special… Continue reading Cone Mills Ginger Jeans
Howdy friends! I’m back with another pair of Ginger Jeans! This pair is even better than the last!! Measurements & sizing I often wish people gave their measurements, especially when they talk about fit and alterations. Mine are 27″ (waist) and 40″ (hips). I cut a size 12 from the hips down. Above the hips,… Continue reading Ginger Jeans – take two!
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
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
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
