If you’ve been following me for a while you know I’m a fan of all things “swing”. When this pattern came out from Named Clothing it immediately went onto my “to sew” list. Then this fabric crossed my path and I knew it was a match made in heaven.
New favorite T-shirt Alert!! I’m not much of a jeans and T-shirt kind of girl. But out of the t-shirts I do have… about half of them are stripes. Theres just something so chic about a striped tee that instantly elevates a casual outfit.
I know, I know… I already have a pair of navy overalls. But just LOOK AT THESE! In my eyes they are totally different from my others. I like to call the vintage Simplicities my “fancy overalls” with their more fitted silhouette and high waist. These I’m calling my “everyday overalls” and they are SO GREAT!
Just a short and sweet post about the Archer shirt I made for my grandma because I haven’t gotten any pictures with her in it yet. It was her 85th birthday and I’ve never made her anything so I thought it would be a great time to start!
New favorite shirt alert!!! I’ve been wanting to make this pattern for SO LONG! (Why do I wait so long to make things that I fall in love with!?) Seriously though – I’ve fallen in love with this blouse and I already have another planned for this year. Keep reading for all the spacey details!
I love sewing for other people, I do. But really had a hard time letting this one go. A pattern I’ve been meaning to make and a beautiful fabric that I don’t have enough left of for a second… just goes to show how much I love my little sister! This was her birthday present and Krissa, if you are reading this: If you EVER decide to get rid of this top I’ll take it back!
I’m FINALLY posting about my first ever handmade jeans!!! Y’all – its true what they say, making jeans is NOT HARD. The trickiest thing is getting the fit perfect for your body. I highly recommend making a muslin (although typical me – I didn’t) so you can really make all the necessary changes before cutting into your good stuff. It took several tweaks but now these babies are fitting great and definitely my new favorites.
Be prepared for a TON of photos because I washouts so excited/proud over this make and I couldn’t pic my favorites. I’ve had my eye on this pattern for a long time. Last year when I was going over holes in my wardrobe I realized I didn’t have a casual-but-warm coat. My other warm coat is longer, lighter in color, and more feminine. Instantly I thought of the Gerard Coat by Republique du Chiffon. Keep reading for all the info and fun little details I added to this coat.
This is a bit of a belated post as I made these rompers about 9 months ago. Part of the delay was because one of them was a gift and I couldn’t spoil it. Then of course life happens and the photos somehow end up waaaaay back in the archives. Well its almost valentines day and I’m bringing them out of the dark because this is a fun little project to sew up for yourself or a friend if you want something sexy yet practical to sleep in! – p.s. if you are offended by butt cheeks read no further 😉
There’s something about a button up shirt sewn in silky fabric that really adds a touch of femininity. My second Melilot will be a great new staple for my fall wardrobe.
