Natural Dyeing- Indigo Henna Vat

I’m back today with another dye post! After my adventures with lac a few weeks ago I was ready to move on to Indigo. I bought all my supplies way back in November but with my injury wasn’t able to use them. I was super excited to give a henna vat a go since I’ve only dyed with indigo twice before, once with a kit which gave great …

Vintage Butterick 4659 Indigo Dyed Pant and Regatta Rib Knit Tank

I’m so in love with this whole look! If you saw my earlier dyeing post here’s the finished results, these 70’s vintage straight-leg pants with patch pockets. You can see the dye is much more subtle now but it really works for this look. I carefully cut out my yardage to keep the pattern lined up across the front, back and pockets. The tank is a happy accident. …

Summer Natural Dyeing

One of the plus sides of spending the summer entirely at home was a bit more time spent experimenting with natural dyes! My husband bought me an indigo kit from Botanical colors back at Christmas that I finally got some time to try my hand at. I also did a bit more avocado dyeing and with my garden in full bloom I did two batches of flower bundling. …

Indigo Sailor Pant + Stripe Waffle Knit Tee Vogue 9282

Happy Thanksgiving! I’m over at my sister’s new home in Sarasota celebrating with my family and looking good in my new indigo Sailor Pants!  The best part of the Holiday this year- no cooking for me! To make it easier this year since we’re all driving in from out of town (and my sis doesn’t love cooking for a crowd) we’ve ordered the whole meal from Whole Foods.  …

Indigo Voile Selvedge Wrap Pants

I whipped up these indigo voile selvedge wrap pants over the summer when I was looking for something blue to wear for the 4th of July. I had re-ordered some of this gorgeous 100% organic cotton dobby voile in Indigo and thought it would work fabulously as a pair of lightweight and breezy wrap pants.  I’ve worn these constantly over the summer and into fall.  I love the …

Indigo and Mini Stripe Voile Bias Dresses

I don’t think I’ll ever tire of wearing indigo.  I just love this color!  I’ve made myself two more self drafted bias cut tube dresses. The first in the indigo seen here and a shorter version in a black and white mini stripe.  Designing and sewing my own patterns is so enjoyable. Organic Cottons Plus sent me my choice of fabric for review and I went with these two organic cotton voiles I’ve had …

Me Made May- Week 3

It’s been another successful week wearing my makes, though I’m coming to the end of my summer wardrobe and only have a few dressier clothing pieces that haven’t been worn yet.  I’ve been focused on sewing swimwear this last week.  A new bikini for me that I’m pattern testing as well as two new swimsuits for Amelie.  If you follow me on Facebook you’ll have seen some sneak …
