Work Wardrobe: Lantern Sleeve Blouse and Denim Culottes

I think this look is one of my favorites!  I love the simplicity of this white lantern sleeve blouse with the dark denim culottes. Both pieces are such versatile basics.  Perfect for work and for the weekend. I wish I had started sewing pieces like these earlier! The denim culottes are my second version of my pattern hack/mashup of B5504 by Connie Crawford and By Hand London’s Holly Pant.  I did everything …

Rust Organic Cotton Twill Holly/B5504 Pattern Hack Capri’s

I love sewing pants!  They are by far my favorite projects to work on. These Capri’s are a pattern hack of By Hand London’s Holly Pants and Connie Crawford B5504 (two of my fav pant patterns!) in an awesome Rust Organic Cotton Twill from Mood.  I tend to prefer very simple/clean lines in solids when I make pants so they never look as exciting as a patterned dress but the sewing is really satisfying. For these …

Holly Pants

I’m back this week with another Holly Adaptation!  Last week I showed you my refashioned Holly Hawthorn Dress and here are the pants.  These were a quick refashion after separating my jumpsuit.  I just had to add a new waistband (included in the pattern) and redo the side invisible zip.  Easy peasy.  I’m wearing them here with one of my favorite me made tops, Anne Klein V1382 modified from a dress …

Holly Hawthorn Dress

This dress combines the best parts of two of my favorite patterns!  The bodice of the Holly Jumpsuit and the skirt from the Hawthorn dress.  Luck was with me as the patterns matched exactly at the waist-though in different sizes.  My easiest pattern hack yet!   Pattern + Fabric Info: Holly Jumpsuit, By Hand London     Size 10 US/14UK Hawthorn Dress, Colette Patterns     Size 8 Hemp Linen  *Organic Cottons Plus ~this fabric …

Me Made May 2015: Week 2

It’s been a fun second week of Me Made May!  I’m not even tired of taking pictures on a daily basis yet either.  Thank goodness for my tripod- its made this years pic’s so much easier!  I’m, having fun trying to not repeat looks and planning out what I’ll wear every day.  I love how well everything in my closet is mixing together this year. Here are this …

White Linen Holly

I’m so excited to be able to share my newest make, my White Linen Holly!  My mom says it’s modern Jane Austen!  Isn’t that fabulous.  Especially since I do adore everything about the regency era.  Plus this is my 100th post!!!! I can’t rave enough about By Hand London’s Holly Jumpsuit.  Just the packaging alone is lovely. I wish all patterns were designed and packaged this well!   The pattern is so  versatile too,  I can …
