I am super excited to share my Suki Kimono on the blog today! I knew that I was going to love this pattern before I even dug into it – I am a huge fan of Helen’s patterns, and was so impressed with the instructions when sewing up the Blackwood Cardigan last year. I’ve got plans to make the Winslow Culottes and the Avery Leggings, and the only reason I’ve been able to hold out this long on the Suki Kimono was because I wanted to be on track with Sew My Style!! I fell in love with this fabric from IndieSew when Allie released it back in January, and I knew it would be my perfect Suki Kimono. It has been sitting washed and ready to go on my shelf ever since, and I’m so glad to finally be wearing it! It is the perfect loungewear, and I have every intention of swanning around the house in this constantly throughout the summer. Side note – I’m also looking forward to the fact that this will be the most magical “me made” for May next year. I’ll be cute and put together in a me made garment, without ever having to actually change out of my pajamas the entire month!!
Two exciting things are mixed into my blog post today! I’ve recently partnered up with Stylish Fabric, and I am so excited to be sewing with and showing off some of their beautiful fabrics a few times a year. This is my first affiliate post with them, and I’m super excited to tell you a little more about the fabric I worked with. Secondly, but equally important, happy Sew My Style May Reveal Day! This one was quite an intriguing mystery to all of us for the first few months of the year. The Sew My Style Leader team was so excited to work with Deer & Doe by using one of their brand spanking new releases in our plans. I’ve loved seeing the beautiful versions of the Myosotis Dress pop up this month, and I’m excited to share mine with you today.
A wrap skirt in a tropical floral rayon challis… Does anything get more summery than that? I don’t think so. Grab the sunscreen & big hats, because I’m officially ready to lay out by the pool! See how I plan to bring this Rosy Peña Marie Wrap Skirt through every possible event this summer!!
Welcome to Month 3 of Project Sew My Style! This month, we will be focusing on the Kalle pattern by Closet Case Patterns. This pattern comes with a few different options for length, collar, placket, pockets, and back pleat detail – it’s a choose your own adventure garment! I’ll be leading this month, so today, I’ve rounded up a few inspiration photos and fabric suggestions that have caught my eye as I began planning out my own project. Take a look, and let me know what you’ll be using to make your Kalle!
