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 …

Sacre Bleu Knit Dress

*Sacré Bleu!  This simple little knit dress made using my Bodice Sloper is all about the color.  I’ve been wanting more clothing in this shade of aqua/teal for the longest time, like my  Georgina dress, and was psyched when I saw this Organic Knit from Michael Levine. I love how this color highlights my big blue eyes, which …

Simple Tank Slip

Just a quick little post today.  I made this simple tank slip up a few weeks ago to wear with my White Holly Hawthorn Dress.  It’s already gotten so much more use then I thought it would. It’s perfect under all my light colored dresses or paired with a skirt. I’m wearing it here with my Shape Shape Wrap …

I kept my silhouettes pretty simple since I want to try out some new …

Indigo and Mini Stripe Voile Bias Dresses

Organic Cottons Plus sent me my choice of …

Bias Layered Dresses

I’m really loving my newest makes, a pair of bias cut tube dresses.  If you followed me for Me Made May you saw me wearing these on Mother’s Day.  I made this pattern using my bodice sloper from the * Craftsy Class Patternmaking: The Bodice Sloper with Suzy Furrer .  I love this class!  If you’re interested in learning …
