Navy Jalie Camisole 3131 and Gradient Waves Knit Skirt

Summer calls for pure comfort and this tank and skirt combo fits the bill perfectly. I love a simple cami with an easy pull on skirt. Easy to wear for day and transition into my daily yoga practice at night. The cami is Jalie 3131 which I’ve made 3 of at this point. It’s a …

Vintage Style 2618 Ikat Dress

I’m so excited to share this vintage make. This mid 90’s vintage dress was made at the end of May and I got pics taken while doing my Me Made May daily shoots. I have a real fondness for 90’s patterns- this one definitely reminds me of some dresses I had in high school. I …

Navy + White Stripe Hooded Swim Dress

We finally got back to the beach last weekend! I think that’s what I missed most during the shutdown. Just in time too- since they’re shutting down again for the 4th of July as our covid numbers are ever increasing here in Florida. The beach and ocean were full of seaweed but it was still …

MMM Days 1-11

I’m really enjoying another year of Me Made May! It’s my 7th year participating! I’m especially enjoying it this year because it’s pushing me to get “dressed” each day while Staying Home. We’re still closed here in Broward County so I’m not leaving the house much at all other than to walk the dog or …

Vintage Butterick Robe 5152

I’m swanning around the house during Stay at Home orders in style! This kitschy print isn’t my usual style but it’s perfect for some vintage pajamas. I’ve had this 1948 re-issue pattern in my stash for years but it requires so much yardage (just under 4 yds.) that I never made it until now. What …
