Travel Planning- Greece

It’s almost time for our big family vacation to Greece! Read on to find out everything I’m sewing for my travel capsule wardrobe and my packing plans for this trip of a lifetime!

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 …

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 used Suzy Furrer’s Craftsy Class – Designing Your Wardrobe- Drafting Tops- to make this up. It’s the last …

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.

2021 Year End Review

I thought I’d finish out the year with a little roundup of everything I made this year. 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 …
