Cream Rib Knit 3/4 Sleeve Top

Just a quick little post today. A very simple but immensely wearable 3/4 sleeve cream rib knit tee. This top features a slightly wider 3/4 sleeve and a nice deep hem and is self drafted. A quick sew mainly on the serger with cover stitched hems and a very narrow ribbed neckband. I always like a nice quick sew inbetween more complicated makes for a breather. I’ve been …

Mix and Match Painted Floral Two Piece Set

I love sewing up matching sets! This double make is one of my faves, a lightweight midi skirt with a nice wide waistband and a simple sleeveless blouse. Both finished with matching buttons up the front. The bold floral really makes the look! I had to have this painted crinkle cotton floral as soon as I saw it! This is another fabulous floral from Blackbird Fabrics, check out …

Haslam 1929 Yellow Floral Slip

I’m back today with one of my favorite summer makes, this 1929 Haslam drafted slip from Book of Draftings #6 in a sweet yellow floral print. I couldn’t resist this lemon yellow japanese cotton print and bought up 3 yds from Blackbird way back in March. I also used this fabric for my vintage McCall’s 6634 Blouse. It’s really not the best color on me but I just …

Swiss Dot Flounce Blouse Version 2.0

I’m back again today with my newest version 2.0 of my Swiss Dot Blouse. If you missed my last post go back to see the original version of this blouse! I love this blouse with this new flounce sleeve. Perfect for summer and easy to wear. This was a very easy refashion once I removed the original sleeves. I had plenty of fabric to work with with the …

Swiss Dot ASG Project Blouse

I have a new blouse to share but I thought I should preface it with the original version I made last year but never shared here on the blog. This is my Swiss Dot Blouse I made with my ASG Group pre-pandemic. I have since refashioned it and will share the updated version tomorrow so you can see both. Please forgive the photo quality! I took these pictures …

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 …

Entredeux Insertion Linen Tank

If you saw last weeks blog post this top will look very familiar! Here is my Lace Insertion Linen Entredeux Tank. I used a self drafted pattern that has just one seam at Center Front and then drew on my style lines. You could do something similar with any simple pattern. My original pattern had french darts but I just ignored them and drew on a traced out …
