White Mandy Tee and Seaglass Tulip Pant

This look is all about the pants! I’ve been dreaming about creating a tulip shaped draped pant that would look like a wrap but is actually seamed in place for easy wear. I drafted out the design on paper and then draped it to get the fit exactly how I was envisioning it. The fabric, in this gorgeous seaglass color, is the star of the show. It has …

Deep Blue Burda Trousers

It only took me a year to get sewing with this vibrant Deep Blue Kona Cotton- but it was worth the wait! I LOVE these paper-bag waist trousers! This is my wearable muslin version of Burda Style Jersey Trousers 113- 05/22 in a size 40 worn with another one of my black and white stripe tees.

Refashioned Dress Shirt One Seam Blouse

I made this blouse last year, took pictures, and then completely forgot to share it! This is my first draft of a new pattern, my one seam blouse, I drafted up with my sloper. I was playing around making a top with only one seam cut on the fold at center back. Below you’ll see a graphic which shows how I drafted this design. Easy to recreate if …
