Vintage 1950’s Seahorse Embroidered Beach Jacket, McCall 1524

I bought this Vintage 1950’s Beach Jacket pattern, McCall’s 1524 on Etsy and really lucked out. I fell in love with the lines of this simple jacket pattern- not even realizing it had embroidery- and seahorses at that! The pattern contained intact (and fully functional) embroidery pattern transfers! So perfect for Florida! It couldn’t have come at a more perfect time either. I scooped up this pattern right …

Madeira Style One Seam Blouse

I’m back today with another of my lace insertion projects, this time a “madeira style” applique done on the machine with a ladder stitch. If you missed it you can go back and read my earlier post on lace insertion here. This make used the same base pattern as my last post, my Entredeux Top, without the added style lines. I really love this pattern I drafted and …

Natural Dyeing- Indigo Henna Vat

I’m back today with another dye post! After my adventures with lac a few weeks ago I was ready to move on to Indigo. I bought all my supplies way back in November but with my injury wasn’t able to use them. I was super excited to give a henna vat a go since I’ve only dyed with indigo twice before, once with a kit which gave great …

Organic French Twill Button Tab Pants

I’m obsessed with this organic cotton french twill! I bought a few yards originally for my 1950’s Beach Jacket and loved it so much I ordered more for these pants, a bra top and shorts. The fabric is a lovely lightweight twill weave in a creamy white which is just perfect for spring. After I fractured my ankle at the beginning of the year my big plan was …

White Double Gauze Salsa Blouse

Happy Holidays! I’m back today with another fabulous fall make- and my last post of 2020! Ending the year with a perfect Florida wrap! I always need a light coverup in early fall to winter and this airy fabric is just perfect for our Florida climate. Plus double gauze always feels dreamy. This white organic cotton is so soft and lovely. I bought the Salsa Blouse pattern from …

Self Drafted V Neck Darted Tank

I’ve been experimenting with shapes as I work to draft some interesting tops and this V Neck Tank is my very wearable muslin. I just love interesting darts and after taking Suzy Furrer’s Craftsy class I’ve been really inspired. This blouse has long french darts in the front and neck darts in the back that work into the center back seam. I went with a high low hem …

Indigo Sailor Pant + Stripe Waffle Knit Tee Vogue 9282

Happy Thanksgiving! I’m over at my sister’s new home in Sarasota celebrating with my family and looking good in my new indigo Sailor Pants!  The best part of the Holiday this year- no cooking for me! To make it easier this year since we’re all driving in from out of town (and my sis doesn’t love cooking for a crowd) we’ve ordered the whole meal from Whole Foods.  …
