Nursing Friendly House Dress

I decided I needed a nursing friendly house dress at around 7 months pregnant. I still had plenty of my favorite knit fabric left over from the LA fabric district and black 12″ invisible zippers, so I got right to it! This is the Santa Fe Top by Hey June lengthened to be a dress (no maternity adjustments). I love … Continue reading “Nursing Friendly House Dress”

Mira Dresses

This is the Mira Dress by Fibre Mood, and I love it! I even loved it so much that I made another one that you can see down below. I bought the pattern when Fibre Mood wasn’t including seam allowances, and I thought my brains were going to explode, but thankfully Fibre Mood has added the seam allowances now, so … Continue reading “Mira Dresses”

Joanne Faux Wrap Dress

Hey friends! I haven’t posted anything here since October?! Well, now you can probably see why! 😉 I am currently 18 weeks pregnant, and we moved to Washington state (hence all of the pine trees). I was really sick all through November and December, plus we had to pack up our entire house before taking off to visit our extended … Continue reading “Joanne Faux Wrap Dress”

Willamette + Carolyn Mashup

When I was fabric shopping in LA in May, I saw this gorgeous linen blend fabric and immediately thought of a shirt on my Pinterst board that I wanted to recreate (inspiration photo below, via Damsel in Dior). At first, I thought I would take it easy and just make a Willamette Shirt, but the more I looked at my … Continue reading “Willamette + Carolyn Mashup”

Shelby Dress

I feel like I have had the inspiration for this dress (shown below) on my Pinterest board for an eternity, but it’s probably only been a couple of years. The inspiration dress is from the blog Polienne, and it’s a vintage dress that she found at a thrift store. Polien is a style & travel blogger from Belgium, and I … Continue reading “Shelby Dress”

Willamette Shirt

I am way overdue on making another Willamette after making my first one in February of last year. My first one was view C, and I made it out of a cotton/linen that was borderline too thick. I lengthened it by 3″, but with mid-rise pants, it still just wasn’t quite long enough for my liking. So I knew for … Continue reading “Willamette Shirt”

Bonn Shirt + #sewrtwstyle

I made my first Bonn Dress last May, and when I tried it on, I knew I had to make the shirt version too. The v-neck mandarin collar is so classic, and the fit is seriously perfect. For any beginner shirt sewists out there, this is a really good pattern to start with. The pattern designer made sure to add … Continue reading “Bonn Shirt + #sewrtwstyle”

Perkins Shirt

There are few patterns that I buy immediately on release day, but the Perkins Shirt by Ensemble Patterns was one of them. When I saw it, I immediately thought of this shirt on my Pinterest board (which may or may not have been her inspiration, who knows), and I had to have it. But first, let’s talk about this tencel shirting (sold … Continue reading “Perkins Shirt”
