What I Made: Puffy Sleeve Dress

Tuesday, September 27, 2022

 


Everyone needs a puffy sleeve dress, don't you think? I thought so. This was another self-drafted pattern adventure. It turned out okay! I actually used a bedsheet from Target to whip this dress up, so it's quite soft.



What I Made: Seamwork Wallis Dress

Tuesday, September 20, 2022


 Workout rompers and dresses seem to be all the rage these days. So naturally, I had to make one too. Introducing the Wallis dress and romper by Seamwork. The dress has shorts underneath which is quite nice, and makes it a perfect contender for tennis/errands/walking/life. I will say though, they are not quite flattering – if you catch my drift. I assume this has more to do with my fabric selection (thinner side) versus the pattern itself. If you're looking for something different to make – give this pattern a go! 




What I Made: Custom Bikini

Wednesday, September 14, 2022


 I shared about some fabric I designed not too long ago... so here it is in action! You can purchase it yourself here. I've always been a fan of how well Spoonflower fabrics hold up in the water, especially when they are white. All you need is a simple lining. 




What I Made: Off the Shoulder Top

Monday, September 5, 2022

 


It's always a relief when a self-drafted project works out. Sure, this top is an easy shape but... the shape does have to be just right. I had just enough extra fabric to sew this one up. It's the same fabric that I used for my Tint of Mint set. Paired with my Aritzia vegan leather pants.


What I Made: VikiSews Georgie Top and Skirt

Thursday, September 1, 2022

 


Like most of us TikTok scrolling girlies, I am currently into matching sets. And big sleeves because...well, why not? I got this beautiful linen from Blackbird Fabrics, which was an exclusive print to them. For the top, I decided to try VikiSews Georgie top. I'll warn you now – it has a LOT of steps, so be sure to budget some time to sew this one up. I assumed this would be a quick one due to how small the top is, but it has plenty of steps to keep you sewing for a couple hours at least. 

The skirt is a simple self drafted skirt... two rectangles for the main fabric (one much wider than the other) and gathered to my waist measurement. Topped off with a zipper and waistband. You can watch the sew along over on my TikTok.


What I Made: Celeste Bikini by Swimstyle

One of my favorite makes... the Celeste Bikini by Swimstyle. Made this one all the way back in 2018!


What I Made: Taylor Swift Inspired Rainbow Wrap Dress

Friday, August 26, 2022

 

Wow – I can't believe I haven't shared this one here yet! I'm way behind on posting a lot of projects... I can't ever decide if the blog is dead. I spent a lot of time posting on TikTok because the short video format is easy and fun. But, that doesn't mean I should ignore this space...I'm sure someone is still reading!


Taylor Swift wore a rainbow wrap sequin dress to promote her album Lover, so I made one too. I took seven different colors in half yard measurements, cut them into 3 inch strips, and sewed those together to create the fabric. I then use a heavily modified BurdaStyle wrap dress that I've made several times. 


It's safe to say that I will not be working with sequins again anytime soon. They were EVERYWHERE! I'd open my laptop at the office to find that they traveled with me. They even made their way in the fridge into a container of hummus. The sequins can't be stopped...
