Well, I told you guys that the Ice Cream Dress would be my last blog post of the year… But I lied a little bit. I decided to do one last post to re-cap my #2017MakeNine projects, and to go a little more in depth about what I’ve got planned for 2018!
Let’s talk about favorite things… When it comes to sewing, some of my favorite things include By Hand London patterns, maxi lengths, and beautiful fabrics.
Cue the best dress of all time (or at least the best dress I made in 2017) – my eucalyptus print, By Hand London Kim, sweetheart neck-lined, maxi hack. I wish I was the type of person who gave all my dresses a cutesy name, but I’m not, so that long, drawn out descriptor will just have to do.
Want to know the best time of year to go all out with those novelty prints in your stash? Holidays. Truly, what is more novelty than a dress that is only appropriate 1/12 of the year? Not a whole lot. So today, I’m excited to share with you my small (but growing!) collection of Halloween themed dresses!
As a nice warm welcome to the autumn season, I’ve teamed up with a few talented fellow sewists to head up #MeMadeFall2017. Our goal is to feature one particular handmade garment over each autumn month, to help ease our wardrobes (and hopefully, yours!) into the chillier weather. We’ve chosen 3 great themes that are broad enough to suit anyone’s style, yet cohesive enough to collaborate with each other in our creations. Want to see how I’ve kicked off #MeMadeFall2017?
