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.

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”
