I’m back for round three of my bi-monthly recaps! I did a little better sewing up stash fabrics in May/June than I did in March/April, but still not quite as good as in January/February. I still participated in quite a bit of collaboration sewing again over this 2-month period, but I am so happy to say that I haven’t purchased any fabric since my IndieSew purchase in February / March! I’m really enjoying getting to make up some of my fabrics into garments I’ve had in my brain for awhile, and shopping my stash when I want to try a new pattern. This was a bottom heavy couple of months, with skirts / pants / shorts making a big bang in my handmade wardrobe. Without any further delay, here’s my makes!!…
Time for another Recap post! This two month interval was filled with collaborations – and for this reason, I didn’t sew much from my stash. I was thrilled to be asked to participate in the Style Maker Fabrics Spring blog tour, as well as another collaboration with Pine Crest Fabrics, AND a new pattern promotion with Deer and Doe! All of this on top of my planned quarterly make with Stylish Fabrics meant I didn’t have a lot of time or wiggle room for additional projects, but it did give me the opportunity to really think out each of these collaborations and actually come up with a really great combination of makes! See all the things I came up with in March and April 🙂
SPRING is here, winter is gone, and bright colors and florals are ready to break out of the closet again! I couldn’t be happier! When Michelle of Style Maker Fabrics asked me to be a part of the Spring Blog Tour, I was thrilled – one of my favorite ways to celebrate anything, especially great weather, is with a great new me-made outfit. Check out my stop on the tour!!!
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!!
