Hello again, friends! I’m back today with a summer staple outfit: comfy shorts and a great tank! Specifically, Chi-Town Chinos and another Ogden Cami. I made both of these earlier this summer, and they both came with me on my trip to Europe! This was my first time making the Chi-Town Chinos, so I started… Continue reading Chi-Town Chinos (& Another Ogden Cami)
Hi friends, I’m finally back, with an Ogden Cami Dress!! I was hoping to be much better at blogging this summer, but life got the best of me. I had the opportunity to travel for work, and continued wandering around the world after the conference for fun. Between this and other school projects, I had… Continue reading Ogden Cami Dress Hack
Hello again friends! It’s been a while, but school is out for the year so it’s sewing time! Today I’m back with a third pair of Ginger Jeans! I’ve had this pair in the plans for quite some time, and I’m so glad I’ve finally gotten to it! This pair of Ginger Jeans is special… Continue reading Cone Mills Ginger Jeans
Howdy friends! I’m back with another pair of Ginger Jeans! This pair is even better than the last!! Measurements & sizing I often wish people gave their measurements, especially when they talk about fit and alterations. Mine are 27″ (waist) and 40″ (hips). I cut a size 12 from the hips down. Above the hips,… Continue reading Ginger Jeans – take two!
I know I’m supposed to be working on my wearable wardrobe, but sometimes a girl’s just gotta make a bra! You might know that I’ve made several Watson Bras, but I’ve recently decided to try my hand at a bra I might actually wear out of the house (read: containing underwire). I looked a bunch… Continue reading Lavender & Nude Boylston Bra
I know my last post was about sewing a wearable wardrobe, and I did not include lingerie in those lists. However, I promise I whipped up this set before writing that post… We know I love the ease and simplicity of the Watson Bra. I also really love the details of the Nora Panties, so I… Continue reading Purple Watson Bra & Nora Panties Set
Ever since I made my first Anna dress, I’ve been dying to make another. I wanted a v-neck Anna dress, and I wanted an Anna maxi dress. I thought I might even be ambitious enough to have a thigh-high slit in one of them. I didn’t know if I wanted all of these things in one… Continue reading Whimsical Anna Maxi Dress
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. I decided to go for something that looked like a more “traditional” bikini (what… 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!
