I was really sad when I missed last years Ogden Ida Swap. By the time I discovered it’s existence it was too late to sign up. I made sure to follow it’s organizers so I wouldn’t miss it the next go round and I’m so glad I did because it was such a fun experience.Click here if you would like to continue reading
I have another back log for you that I’m finally getting around to sharing! I made this dress last fall. It’s such a great transition piece that can be worn casually or dressed up.Click here if you would like to continue reading
Most often when I see a fabric I immediately know what it is meant to become. This was absolutely the case with the polka dot rayon I used for my birthday dress, and the striped rayon Jackie gave me for our Share Your Fabric Stash challenge. But every now and then a fabric comes along that stumps me. Whether it’s because the fabric is too amazing that I’m intimidated by it, or perhaps I have idea overwhelm and the one thats just right isn’t jumping out at me.
With this amazing rayon print I recently got in collaboration with Workroom Social’s new fabric collection Bantam by Kelli Ward of True Bias I think it was the former. I mean, how great is this wacky mustard-based print!? The name of the print is actually WILD!! I just have to do it justice.
Today I’m taking you behind the scenes of how I plan out a project when I’m not 100% sure what a certain fabric should become. I hope you find it helpful & inspiring as this process never lets me down.
If there was a game called “refashion everything into an ogden cami” I think I would win! It’s just such an easy pattern to refashion from other garments. It requires very little fabric and is very hack-able, two characteristics that are great for refashioning.
Theres a reason I’m standing in the street in front of an old ford truck…
This project has been finished for so long I am so happy to finally be posting it. Its not news that I love the Ogden Cami by True Bias, but this one is special because it is a super fun refashion that turned a dress I never wore into a tank that gets lots of wear time!
It’s the first post of 2018!!! I know towards the end of last year when I was busy with lots of holiday travel and releasing my first pattern my regular project posts really fell to a lull. SO… in order to make it up to you I wanted to start this year off with a bang!
You’ve seen me post about this on instagram a couple of times but it definitely deserves its own blog post because… sequins! I’m also including a quick diagram of how I drafted the skirt.
