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.

Teal Birthday Dress- Vintage Vogue 7519

It’s my Birthday- feeling great at 46! Plus it’s an extra lucky bday- 02/02/2022! I don’t have many dressed up occasions since the pandemic so my Birthday is a great excuse to make a dress. It’s been quite chilly here the past few weeks (it went down to 39- Super cold for us Floridians) so I made up one last bit of winter wear before my Spring sewing …

Vintage 80’s McCall’s 2481 Stripe Dress

I’m super excited to share this new make today, circa 1986! When I was a kid back in the 80’s I had a favorite striped dress with a cool tie back. That dress (image below) was a gray and white stripe cotton with a bodice that had a tie angled back that attached with buttons at the waist and had nice big pockets. I wanted to recreate that …

Blue Teal Stamped Dot Knit Dress Vogue 9312

It’s full on summer here in Florida so time to share some of my newest makes for the season! I’ve been sewing up a storm lately so I have a big backlog of new makes to share. This dress is my second version of Very Easy Vogue pattern 9312. I love this knit pattern and it sews up really quickly. This dress has gotten a ton of wear …

Blue Sparkle Knit Ruska Knot Tee

The past month has been all about sewing from my stash. This was one of my last makes for winter with a little bit of holiday sparkle. I’ve had this knit for a little over a year and couldn’t quite figure out what to do with it. It’s a bit on the sheer side and lightweight with not a ton of stretch. As soon as I got Breaking …

Navy Ponte Sweater Dress B6388

I whipped up this dress just in time to get a bit of wear during our recent cold spell! Florida winters are super mild but every once and I while I just want something cozy to bundle up in. This Butterick dress B6388 in navy ponte does just that. I made my version in a straight cut size Small (8-10) which is smaller than my usual size but …

Blue Confetti Knit Top + Cream Selvedge Culottes

I’m so excited about this new top! It’s self drafted off my knit sloper with the shoulder seam pushed to the back in a curved inset. I love how regency dresses had the shoulder seams pushed to the back bodice and I wanted to create a more modern adaptation of that idea. This is my very wearable muslin testing out those seamlines.  I purchased this blue confetti French …
