Vintage Simplicity 5688 Skirt with Embroidered Pockets and Retro Stripe Rib Turtleneck

I’m so happy to finally share this make, my vintage Simplicity 5688 Linen Skirt with embroidered curve pockets! I wore this for Thanksgiving and got so many compliments. My daughter wore a striped rib knit turtleneck too, so we were almost matching! There’s a fantastic banyan tree with a built in swing next to the lake in our community where my daughter loves to play. She was happy …

Entredeux Insertion Linen Tank

If you saw last weeks blog post this top will look very familiar! Here is my Lace Insertion Linen Entredeux Tank. I used a self drafted pattern that has just one seam at Center Front and then drew on my style lines. You could do something similar with any simple pattern. My original pattern had french darts but I just ignored them and drew on a traced out …

Orange Poppies Self Drafted Tank

As soon as I saw this gorgeous fabric I fell in love! Poppies have always been my favorite flower to draw, I used them quite a bit in my early printmaking. The oranges and teal/ grey on this wheat background is just perfection. This was my splurge purchase for myself at Christmas as this fabric is $40/yd. I figured I’d buy 1 yd and use it for a …

Mint Cactus Sandhill Sling

I’m finally back sewing and blogging! I’ve been sewing up a storm now that I’m weight-bearing after fracturing my ankle right before the new year. My foot is healing really well 3 months out, my stitches are barely noticeable and I’m slowly learning how to walk again! First up on my to sew list was this Sandhill Sling from Noodlehead. I bought the pattern and all the supplies …

Blue and White Linen Pinstripe Self-drafted Tailored Shirt

The year is almost over and I have quite a few makes to share! First up is a tailored shirt in a lovely lightweight woven linen blue and white pinstripe. I’ve been working for the last few months to perfect my dress shirt pattern. This one is almost there. I bit more width in the body and shoulder and it will be spot on. I really like that …

Wisteria Linen Vintage Dress Simplicity 4873

I’ve been on a bit of a vintage kick the last few months and this wisteria linen vintage dress, Simplicity 4873, is my latest creation. I bought this lovely wisteria colored purple linen from Blackbird fabrics and it was a bit darker then I had envisioned. If you saw my earlier post you’ll see I reordered the lilac color for my twinset. I looked through my ever growing …

Drawstring Linen + Viscose Shorts and Navy Tee

Orange and Navy- Two of my very favorite colors! I’ve been planning on sewing up some shorts for quite some time but just couldn’t find a pattern I liked. I drafted this pattern using my pant sloper and so far so good. This is the first very wearable muslin so the pattern still needs a few tweaks. I’ve also made and remade these shorts since photographing these images …
