In the throes of summer sewing, I thought I might need to make the most summer apparel of them all: a swim suit. I had initially thought about making a bikini Watson set, since it would really just require different fabric and elastic, but I decided to go for something that looked like a more “traditional”… Continue reading Refuse to Sink – Ohhh Lulu Zooey Bikini
A couple of weeks ago, I was mindlessly scrolling through instagram, enjoying everyone’s Me Made May wears, and I stumbled upon a post from Itch to Stitch requesting pattern testers. I eagerly applied and was super excited to be selected as a pattern tester. The Vienna Tank pattern was released today so now I can show mine off! 🙂
So this year for Me Made May, I decided I was aiming for one me-made item per week. I’ve only been sewing for about a year, and I seem to mostly make dresses and lingerie, so I knew my everyday-wear options were slim. Without further ado, my 2016 Me Made May roundup! The first item… Continue reading Me Made May 2016 Roundup!
Ever since I discovered By Hand London, I’ve seen some amazing Anna Dresses floating around the internet. I absolutely love my Georgia Dress, but I didn’t really feel drawn to making the Anna for a long time. I don’t know what it was, but I just wasn’t feeling it for a while. I got the… Continue reading By Hand London Anna Dress
Lately, I’ve been noticing a lot of my panties are wearing thin. I haven’t bought a lot in over 2 years, so it’s not terribly surprising. But I hate the idea of paying $5 or more for a pair that is cute, but not everything I’ve ever wanted, so I decided to start making my… Continue reading Ohhh Lulu Galore
I have a friend who adores NYC. She’s been a few times and still posts pictures at least once every week or so from her trips. I saw this free pattern on Hugs are Fun and thought it would be fun to cross stitch it for her. So, without further ado…NYC Skyline! I used an… Continue reading NYC Skyline
A few months ago, I ordered two bra and panty kits from Blackbird Fabrics. I had made a “practice Watson” before the kits came and decided it was about time to make use of at least one of the kits. I wanted to make the longline version of the bra this time, so I used the… Continue reading Dusty Mauve Watson Set
After a couple weeks of not sewing and of feeling miserable for some strange reason, I realized that sewing is my self-care. It’s frustrating and annoying and sometimes it makes me want to cry, but in spite of all the projects I’ve put aside when they were so close to done because they didn’t fit… Continue reading Maritime Shorts
Ohh, maxi skirts, how I love you. You hug my curves at all the right places, and give me one more day of spring without shaving. You come in all different colors, and can be paired with almost any shirt I own. Why do I only own one of you? Needless to say, I had… Continue reading Maxi skirt
This year, I wanted to make a beautiful dress for myself for Easter, and I’ve also been wanting to sew some vintage patterns. I decided to make this dress as my first for Vintage Pledge 2016. I gave myself plenty of time before Easter (a couple of weeks) and it worked out perfectly!
