Breton Stripe Knit Wrap Jacket

I love a good Breton stripe and this one is a gorgeous shade of delft blue and super cozy. I was originally planning on making this into a tee but I love loops on the wrong side of the fabric and wanted to be able to show them off. I used Suzy Furrer’s Craftsy Class – Designing Your Wardrobe- Drafting Tops- to make this up. It’s the last …

Betty Jackson Hooded Pullover – Vogue 2620

I lucked out and it got chilly this morning(54 degrees F) so I was able to take some pics of my newest make- and my last make of winter- Vogue Designer Originals 2620 Betsy Jackson Hooded Pullover! On my birthday I told my husband what I really needed for winter was a cozy house sweater like the one I had when we were first married. He told me …

Organic French Twill Button Tab Pants

I’m obsessed with this organic cotton french twill! I bought a few yards originally for my 1950’s Beach Jacket and loved it so much I ordered more for these pants, a bra top and shorts. The fabric is a lovely lightweight twill weave in a creamy white which is just perfect for spring. After I fractured my ankle at the beginning of the year my big plan was …

Lavender Faux Jumpsuit

Back in high school I had the loveliest lavender suit. It was the 90’s- it had square shoulders, a cloth belt and wide leg pants. But what really made it fabulous was the color. I hadn’t worn that color in ages but when I was redoing my color palette this year I wanted to add that in. I’d been planning on making a faux jumpsuit/two piece set all …

Striped Surplice Wrap Dress

What to do when Fall’s over and you still have a ton of shirting fabric leftover…sew a shirtdress! I bought this lovely bold stripe from Mood ages ago planning to make a dress shirt. It’s way too warm here now to even think about long sleeves so a light summer dress was the way to go. I just drafted this striped surplice wrap dress pattern last month using …

Pattern Drafting- So Many Muslins

I’ve been using all my free time between jobs over the last month to work on pattern drafting. Check out my earlier post on my sloper here. I bought a ton of drafting paper and unbleached cotton muslin so I had plenty of material on hand to work with. I’ve worked with all of Suzy Furrer’s Craftsy courses now and just love them. I bought her book, Building …

Self Drafted Japanese Lightwash Cropped Denim and Mirage Knitted Tank

I’m super busy this week prepping for Thanksgiving but had to share my newest make: these awesome cropped jeans! I drafted these myself off my redone pant sloper. I knew exactly what I wanted: a high waist, a medium wide leg that falls straight out from the hip, cropped. Minimal details and simple style. These jeans are the first part of my planned winter look (above). I’ll make …
