Linen Swing Top

I’m back today with this simple Linen Swing Top made using my Sloper and refashioned from two less than successful makes. The grey stripe voile (given to me by Organic Cottons Plus for review when I made it originally) is from my Bias Layer Dress.  The fit of the grey dress was a bit off in comparison to my blue version.  …

Refashioned Denim Dress

I just love how this denim dress turned out!  Sadly I haven’t gotten to wear this except for taking the pictures as it’s still way too hot to wear denim here in Florida!  But once winter comes this will be my go to dress.  You can never have too many shift dresses! I’ve made this pattern, Anne Klein for Vogue …

Refashioned Tee Shorts

I probably sew for my extended family just once a year or so, usually for Christmas gifts.  But as soon as my younger brother Adrian saw Nigel’s RHCP shorts he wanted some of his own.  He went out the very next day to pick up some Tee’s from Goodwill for me to refashion.  I whipped these up …

Meet Georgina-New to Me, IPM

Me Made May 2015: Week 4 Naples + Miami

We’re in the homestretch now for Me Made May! Only one last week to go.  So far what’s been working best for me are tanks and skirts or pants-i.e. easy to mix and match separates.  Planning out my color palette has made a huge difference this year in that regard. Most of my wardrobe is comprised of navy, whites and …

Racerback Dress Refashion

  I whipped up this dress last week when I was craving something quick to sew.  As I’ve mentioned before we’re in the process of selling our condo so I haven’t been able to sew as much as I’d like and all my natural dye projects have been put on hold until after we move.  …

Spring Cleaning

It’s full on Spring here already in Florida.  The afternoons lately have been in the high 80’s!  I just did a big closet purge and packed away all my winter clothes to get ready for spring.  I’m following along with the Coletterie’s Wardrobe Architect once again.  February was focused on cleaning out your closet and March is planning your …
