We’re about halfway through March and I’m seeing signs of Spring everywhere! The cherry blossoms are in bloom all around me, the air has that perfect spring smell, and the temperature is getting warmer and warmer each day. My family and I have been spending so much more time outside over the last couple of weeks, and it has made all of us so happy. (Of course, now that I say that, we’ve got a full week of rain on the forecast. Whoops!) Earlier this year, I chose this fabric as part of my “Monthly Make My Stash” project, but I wasn’t quite sure what I would make! I purchased this fabric a couple of years ago, before I was comfortable with sewing knit fabrics, and it has sat on my shelf ever since. It is so beautiful, and I really didn’t want to cut into it until I knew I was going to love what I made. So to help me challenge myself to make sure I finally sewed it up, I made it my March project!
This skirt is a long time coming, guys. When I finally made my mind up to recreate a skirt that I’d long loved on my Pinterest boards, the Anna Dress came to mind immediately. I scoured Instagram and blogs looking to see if anyone had made a skirt version, and I surprisingly could not find one anywhere! Why aren’t more of us using this absolutely gorgeous pattern to make incredible maxi skirts??? See how I brought pinspiration to life with the Anna pattern here!
When I get a vision in my head, I don’t let go of it very easily, and these pink Portobello Trousers are a testament to that tenacity. I purchased this fabric from IndieSew alongside a beautiful cupro jersey in my favorite shade of fern green. For some reason, I always get excited to make something green to wear on St. Patty’s Day, and I knew that the cupro jersey would make a really great Adrienne Blouse to wear this year. This rayon crepe was available on IndieSew at the time, and the colors complemented that fern green so well that I couldn’t resist making an outfit out of it. A few hiccups and unexpected issues (and inches!!) later…. Here are my Portobello Trousers!
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.
