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 for loungewear especially while I’m at home all the time. Perfect simple basics …

Bias Tank Refashion

I’ve got a super simple make to share with you today-my Bias Tank Refashion. So easy to alter but wow-what a difference.  It’s made this unworn dress into one of my favorite basic pieces in my wardrobe. I wear it ALL the time!

Rouleau Edged Top

One of my goals for the year has been to up my repertoire of sewing techniques and this rouleau edged top is the result!  I saw the cover for the Threads Feb/March 2015 Issue (#177) and was hooked. The bodice and hems utilize a rouleau technique of hand stitched bias tubes as edging. The effect is airy and beautiful. And the aqua blue silk used was just stunning! You can see my inspiration on my Pinterest Board for …

Bias Layered Dresses

I’m really loving my newest makes, a pair of bias cut tube dresses.  If you followed me for Me Made May you saw me wearing these on Mother’s Day.  I made this pattern using my bodice sloper from the * Craftsy Class Patternmaking: The Bodice Sloper with Suzy Furrer .  I love this class!  If you’re interested in learning pattern drafting this class is a fabulous intro.  The pattern inspiration is from …
