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!
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!
Today, I’m doing something a little different here on the blog – not only am I sharing my first ever piece of me-made lingerie, I’m also going to share step-by-step how I hacked the Jordy Bralette into a nursing-friendly bralette! I don’t do a lot of pattern hacking, but this was a serious need in my wardrobe, so there was no hesitation hacking right into this one. I LOVE the outcome, and I am looking forward to making a couple more very soon to round out my bra collection.
Big news – a new True Bias pattern dropped yesterday!! If you haven’t already seen it, take a quick minute to go check it out. As we’ve come to expect from Kelli and True Bias, this pattern is another absolute winner. The Calvin Wrap Top and Dress is a strappy true wrap top / dress with some great details. It looks perfect in linen and linen blends, but would also be so great in a rayon or one of those beautiful silk noils I’ve had my eye on. I had the pleasure of testing this pattern – there have been a few minor tweaks to the pattern since then, mostly in the strap length, but I’ve been absolutely in love with this top ever since I finished stitching it up.
