60’s Inspired Floral Rayon Caftan- Greece Travel Wardrobe

My sister treated me to a mini photo shoot (with her phone camera) for this beautiful Graphic 60’s Inspired Floral Rayon Caftan I made just for our trip to Greece in September. It’s the simplest little pattern perfect to display this amazing print! This fabric is just gorgeous, silky and almost sheer, the graphic print reminds me of a dress I had in collage that I called my …

Deep Blue Burda Trousers

It only took me a year to get sewing with this vibrant Deep Blue Kona Cotton- but it was worth the wait! I LOVE these paper-bag waist trousers! This is my wearable muslin version of Burda Style Jersey Trousers 113- 05/22 in a size 40 worn with another one of my black and white stripe tees.

Ice Blue Twill Burda Midi Skirt + Simple White Scoop Neck Tee

I just love a nice full midi skirt.  Paired with a simple tee it’s one of my favorite silhouettes. This Ice Blue Twill Burda Midi skirt paired with a self drafted white scoop neck tee is one of my new favorite outfits. The skirt is just casual enough for everyday wear, especially with the rustic coconut shell buttons, and the tee is a true wardrobe staple. This is …

Short +Sweet Burda top

Just a quick make today, a cute retro boxy top from BurdaStyle Summer Issue that I’ve been meaning to make up for a while.  This top is my wearable muslin, sewn out of some leftover upholstery fabric I came across in my closet.  I made some matching pillows about 6 years ago :) Pattern: Burda 130-052014 US Striped Retro Shirt (couldn’t find the pattern online but here’s the …

Shell Wrap Shibori Jacket

I’ve had this make finished for quite a while but it’s been just too hot to take pics.  I still probably won’t get any wear out of this for a few more months, but I love it!  This jacket was made with the leftover yardage from my Deer & Doe Centauree Dress and while the pink was lovely I didn’t want two pieces in my wardrobe that were so …

Crossover Top & Flared Skirt-Monosewn

I love the monthly challenges over at TMS, they’re great for charging up my creativity and making me think outside of my comfort zone. This month was a big challenge for me. July is Mono Sewn-sewing in black & white- over at The Monthly Stitch.  My vote for the month’s challenge was “Inspired By” so I wanted to incorporate that aspect into the look I made as well. While I …

Summer Sewing Plans

It’s been a busy summer with both kids home all day and tons of family visiting.  I’m a bit amazed by how much sewing I’ve accomplished lately!  I thought I better plan out my makes for the rest of the summer  since my fabric and pattern stash has grown quite a bit lately.  The weather tends to stay warm here until way past December so I’ll be wearing …
