AK Patterns – Brittany Skirt

Athina of AK Patterns came back from a hiatus and hit the ground running by releasing the Brittany Skirt last week – a new skirt pattern that is perfectly on trend for your Spring and Summer wardrobe needs!! The Brittany Skirt rides the line between your standard, gathered skirt and the dungaree / bibs / overall trend that has taken over this year. The over the shoulder straps add a fun touch that really takes this classic style to another level! I participated in the Tester Group for this pattern back in the fall, and I’m so happy to finally share it with you today!

February Monthly Make My Stash – Neon Tabor Sweater

Last week, I went into a little more detail about my #MonthlyMakeMyStash project and how I chose my goal fabrics for 2020. This here is the beautiful neon sweater knit fabric that I chose for February! I purchased this lovely sweater knit from Stylish Fabric in August 2018, and much like my January fabric, I knew exactly what I wanted it to be but it continued to get pushed back to the non-priority pile. It also became a little bit more of a high-stakes fabric when I sewed a maternity-friendly Waterfall Raglan in autumn 2018 and it began to immediately unravel – I found out that I didn’t actually know how to sew with sweater knits, and it made a difference! With that realization, I became pretty nervous about cutting into this wild and beautiful neon sweater knit. Thanks to my Monthly Make My Stash challenge, I finally sewed it up and I am thrilled that I did!!

I Am Lion with Stylish Fabric

Are you really a sewist if you aren’t frantically sewing up new me-made garments the week before your trip? Yeah, I didn’t think so. My priority for this trip was to create a few looks that would make me feel put together while still being comfortable enough for travel, and warm enough to be outdoors. I purchased the I AM Patterns Lion and Zebre set over the Black Friday weekend, and I knew these would both be perfect for my travel plans. Comfy cozy sweatshirts? Check. Special details that made them just a little extra? Check. (Here’s where you “check” it out on the blog!)

Snow Leopard Roscoe Blouse

When I first saw the Roscoe Blouse, I didn’t think I needed it in my wardrobe. It was super cute, but quite honestly when I first started sewing all I wanted to do was make pretty party dresses! The Roscoe got forgotten until recently, when I realized that it holds quite a few similarities to the most well-loved (and overused) top in my wardrobe. I finally purchased the pattern recently, and I am SO glad that I did. (PS – the pattern was just recently re-released in a more inclusive size range! If you don’t have it yet, read on and see why I think you should definitely grab it! I’ve linked the pattern at the bottom!)
