By now, I think we all know that Deer & Doe create absolutely beautiful and well-designed patterns. Last spring, I had the pleasure of sewing up a beautiful Nenuphar Kimono in collaboration with their spring pattern releases, and this year I was so honored to be asked to participate again! This time around, I had the opportunity to sew up the Agave Skirt. This pattern is really interesting – it is a woven wrap skirt that can be finished with a facing, or made to be reversible. The main pattern feature is an asymmetrical hem line… Which you may notice that my skirt does not have. This lack of the absolute main design feature was not my intention when I began working on this skirt.
Happy March!! I’ve decided that this year, as a way to step back and recognize what I’ve made and make sure I’m on track with some of my sewing goals this year, I am going to do a little recap blog post every couple of months! I’m really looking forward to these! If you follow along with my stories on Instagram, you may be familiar with some of my plans and goals for 2019 sewing. I started putting these goals into action as soon as the new year started, and here’s a little rundown of how my first two month segment turned out!
I made this Toaster Sweater back in the autumn of 2017. I went and took a couple of cute blog photos in it, and have been wearing it fairly regularly ever since. Recently, I realized that despite all of that, I’d never actually written a blog post to go with this wardrobe staple! So here I am, finally correcting that.
I’m so excited to be sharing my Camden skirt on the blog today!! You may have seen my early sneak peek on the pattern release day at the end of January – I had the pleasure of testing this pattern, so I couldn’t help but share a photo to promote the pattern as soon as it released. Today, I’ll get to elaborate a little bit on my experience with the pattern, and my resulting skirt! ( PS – Read all the way to the bottom for a little surprise!)
