Avocado Dyed Marcy Tilton Pants

  These are my new favorite pants!  I love the wide leg silhouette that tapers with two lower leg pleats, the fitted and darted waist in front with an elastic band in back (so comfy!) and all the seaming details.  Plus giant pockets!  And the hemp is so light and soft after washing and drying looking much like linen.  I need these pants in every color! I purchased …

Indie Dresses- Lemon Drop Maxi

I’ve been so excited for Indie Pattern Month over at The Monthly Stitch!  This is my entry into the Dresses Contest, you can see my post for TMS here, and my favorite make so far.  I LOVE how this turned out, especially as it was really supposed to be just a wearable muslin.  This was perfect timing too, as I was able to wear this to my son’s preschool …

Indigo Dyed Jeans- Finally Completed!

I’ve been working on these jeans for about a month, so I’m really excited to have them finally completed, especially before the warm weather hits Florida!  I was really getting concerned that I wouldn’t have a chance to wear them this season.  Plus they’re just in time for February’s Smarty Pants Challenge over at The Monthly Stitch, and my first time contributing!  Between the indigo dyeing (which I did …

February Sewing Plans!

I’ve been taking a step back this week and focusing again on my big sewing projects and wardrobe planning.  Last week’s Kids Clothes Week Challenge was a lot of fun, but it wore me out!  I’m just not used to sewing so much at once, definitely needed a breather.  I can’t believe I sewed all this in one week! Yesterday I did a huge wardrobe detox and sorted …

Indigo Dyeing

So excited- I’m dyeing with indigo this morning while my oldest is at school.  I’m using the dye kit I ordered from Noon Design Studios which is super easy to use.  All the components come in one box in dissolvable packaging for no mess.  The kit has everything you need to dye 5-8 natural fiber items.  It includes gloves, soda ash, indigo and an oxygen reducer  all in …

Organic Reversible Wrap Skirt

This week has been all about working on fitting my muslin’s for my fitted jacket and jeans while I wait on my ordered fabric to arrive and finish dyeing my denim, my indigo dye kit just arrived from noon dye studios :)  More updates soon!     I thought I’d take a break from the tedium and whip out a quick & easy sewing project for myself.  I …

Sleeveless Scarf Blouse

On the top of my list of things I really need in my wardrobe are more tops and blouses.  This blouse was my first make for the New Year.  I’m wearing it here with my Winter Moss Wide Leg Pants.   It’s the Sleeveless Scarf Blouse from Shape Shape by Natsuno Hiraiwa.  I reviewed two other patterns from the same book here and here.   I’m looking forward to getting …
