Self Drafted Japanese Lightwash Cropped Denim and Mirage Knitted Tank

I’m super busy this week prepping for Thanksgiving but had to share my newest make: these awesome cropped jeans! I drafted these myself off my redone pant sloper. I knew exactly what I wanted: a high waist, a medium wide leg that falls straight out from the hip, cropped. Minimal details and simple style. These jeans are the first part of my planned winter look (above). I’ll make …

Apple Slope Knit Tank

Summer in Florida calls for light and bright pieces and this knitted tank, Slope by Shibui Knits, is a perfect addition to my summer wardrobe.  I was first drawn to the color of this yarn.  It’s so bright and fresh.  I had already made a tester version of Slope in a caramel color (which unfortunately is NOT a color that looks good on me) so I felt confident …

Loved: Slow Fashion October

It’s been such a nice breather working on my hand-dyed knitted sweater for Slow Fashion October. Working on all the patterns cables takes a bit of concentration but it’s so relaxing.  Almost meditative. My brother just took up knitting too, so I’ve been helping him out a bit via Skype. He just made an awesome shark scarf for one of his nephews and is making my kids fish scarves for Christmas too!  They’re psyched! I love to …

Fall Wardrobe Sewing Plans

This summer has just flown by! My oldest starts school in just two weeks.  As my summer sewing winds down it’s time to focus on my Fall sewing plans.   Our weather here is quite warm until at least January so these sewing projects are all geared toward year-round wear. I kept my silhouettes pretty simple since I want to try out some new sewing techniques as well as natural dyeing with each look.  You can check out …
