The newest pattern in the True Bias lineup was released on Tuesday, and I am so excited to show you the version I whipped up as a pattern tester! I sewed this fun tee up at the end of February, just a few months before the world turned upside down and social distancing became our norm. This was the second pattern that I’ve tested for True Bias, and just as with the last, it was such a pleasure to test for Kelly!
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!)
It’s RECAP time! I sewed up SIX stash fabrics over the last two months, which I’m super happy about! My July sewing seemed a little slow, as I started my first ever pair of jeans about halfway through, but once I powered through that awesome project I was very productive throughout August! I had the luxury of taking some time off around my birthday, and just sit in my sewing room for an entire day and make stuff, which I haven’t done in many many months. It felt so great, and was the perfect birthday gift to myself. I also brought you guys in on the birthday fun by hosting a pretty awesome giveaway!! It was a super great couple of months, and here’s the outcome:
Last year as part of Sew My Style 2018, I made my first ever pair of pants – a tropical print pair of Tilly and the Buttons Marigold Trousers in this super lovely Rifle Paper Co. rayon lawn. They were a great intro into a very basic pair of pants, but they have never been 100% my style. I loved them with the white crop top I originally photographed them with, and I also wore them a couple of times with an off-white Ogden cami tucked in. I liked the comfortable, casual look of this pairing and ultimately decided that I’d use that last little bit of scrap fabric to make up a matching Ogden cami for a faux jumpsuit! So here I am, holding on to every last bit of summer in a monstera leaf printed faux jumpsuit!
