There are few things more satisfying as a sewist than finally turning a fabric you’ve been holding onto for years into a garment that you know that you’re going to wear all the time. This is one of those garments! I’m here today to convince you (though it won’t take much convincing) that you need this pattern. And it is only $1, so I think we’re gonna be on the same page here. 🙂
Happy SewMyStyle Reveal Sunday! I’m thrilled to be revealing my new beautiful Phoenix Blouse, a silhouette that I needed in my closet. I had the pleasure of sewing up this version in this CRAZY great cotton from Fibers to Fabric, and I was not disappointed! Come check it out this morning!
It’s RECAP time! I sewed up SIX stash fabrics over the last two months, which I’m super happy about! My July sewing seemed a little slow, as I started my first ever pair of jeans about halfway through, but once I powered through that awesome project I was very productive throughout August! I had the luxury of taking some time off around my birthday, and just sit in my sewing room for an entire day and make stuff, which I haven’t done in many many months. It felt so great, and was the perfect birthday gift to myself. I also brought you guys in on the birthday fun by hosting a pretty awesome giveaway!! It was a super great couple of months, and here’s the outcome:
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!
