Last year as part of Sew My Style 2018, I made my first ever pair of pants – a tropical print pair of Tilly and the Buttons Marigold Trousers in this super lovely Rifle Paper Co. rayon lawn. They were a great intro into a very basic pair of pants, but they have never been 100% my style. I loved them with the white crop top I originally photographed them with, and I also wore them a couple of times with an off-white Ogden cami tucked in. I liked the comfortable, casual look of this pairing and ultimately decided that I’d use that last little bit of scrap fabric to make up a matching Ogden cami for a faux jumpsuit! So here I am, holding on to every last bit of summer in a monstera leaf printed faux jumpsuit!
I’ve got another awesome Minerva Make up on the blog today! This Orchid Midi Dress that I sewed up back in June is made in the most beautiful large scale floral Lady McElroy cotton lawn. It was the perfect dress to make to participate in so many of the awesome sewing challenges that popped up in June, and has gotten plenty of wear since then! Come take a look at this 70’s-inspired number!
Happy Labor Day! We just got back from a weekend in Austin celebrating our 6th wedding anniversary, and I’ll be celebrating today by spending the day relaxing in this accidentally almost patriotic Jarrah Sweatshirt! Check it out on the blog this morning.
I bought this knit over a YEAR ago, and finally sewed it up this week! It’s true love – I’ve always needed a Harry Potter tank in my wardrobe! If you are on the search for a cute, comfy tank basic to round off your summer wardrobe or help you transition into cardigan season, this one is a winner – and it is 50% off through the end of the month!
