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.

Faye Swimsuit- Tester Version

Lemon Stripe Utu Skirt and Terra T-shirt

I’m back today with a brand new make! This is my lemon stripe Utu skirt from breaking the Pattern by Named worn with a simple Terra t-shirt. Perfect summer outfit!

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 …

Breton Stripe Knit Wrap Jacket

I love a good Breton stripe and this one is a gorgeous shade of delft blue and super cozy. I was originally planning on making this into a tee but I love loops on the wrong side of the fabric and wanted to be able to show them off. I used Suzy Furrer’s Craftsy Class – Designing Your Wardrobe- Drafting Tops- to make this up. It’s the last …

Rayon Quartz Dobby Skirt- Vogue Designer Original 2129

Today I’m sharing what once was a Belinda Bellville dress and is now a much more wearable-and comfortable- elastic waist skirt. I love vintage patterns and lucked out finding this Vogue Designer Original Belinda Bellville design very close to my size, in a 16. I love this so much now that it’s been refashioned! And I really like the combo I’m wearing in the images here. This is …
