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!

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 …

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.

Haslam 1940’s Pajamas with Embroidered Patch Pockets

I’m back today with a super fun make- these 1940’s Haslam PJ’s with Embroidered Patch Pockets! These are a very wearable muslin made up in some French Twill I naturally dyed with Sappanwood Sawdust. I wanted to make a practice set before sewing up my fancy pj’s in a blue gingham check fabric. I figured while I was at it I might as well make them a bit extra and added my own embroidery pattern with these patch pockets from my Beginner Embroidery Pockets Collection.

I made quite a bit this last year, especially considering I was out of commission for so long with my ankle injury. Tomorrow is my one year mark from my ankle fracture which really disrupted and changed my goals this year! I blogged about 21 makes and sewed up quite a …

Yarn Dyed Blue, Ivory and Black Striped Pants

Introducing my new favorite pants! These are my self drafted wide leg pants with curve pockets in a super soft yarn dyed blue, ivory and cream deadstock fabric from Blackbird Fabrics.

Fall/Winter Wardrobe Planning 2021

I love planning out my wardrobe makes for the season! I’m extra excited for fall sewing now that the temps have dropped a bit and I have so much fabric in my stash from last year. With my ankle fracture I was out of commission for quite a few months and never got to use all the beautiful wintery fabrics I got for Christmas last year. I can’t …
