Naturally Dyed Robe and Bias Slip

Over the summer I did quite a bit of dyeing using indigo, avocados as well as some floral bundles. That part was easy but figuring out what I want to make with those is always harder. The color was so subtle on both, and not in my usual color palette. The softer colors seemed perfect …

Vintage Butterick 4689 Flamingo Shirt and PJ shorts

I’m back today with my final make (for now) using vintage Butterick 4659. (Links to the skirt and pants ) I wanted to give all the versions of this pattern a go since the others fit so well. I wasn’t sure how the shape of this blouse would work – especially since it’s shown open …

Drawstring Linen + Viscose Shorts and Navy Tee

Orange and Navy- Two of my very favorite colors! I’ve been planning on sewing up some shorts for quite some time but just couldn’t find a pattern I liked. I drafted this pattern using my pant sloper and so far so good. This is the first very wearable muslin so the pattern still needs a …
