  My name is Summer. I want to sew all the things.

Sewing is very infrequent these days, but I got the urge to sew a birthday gift and pulled it off with only minutes to spare. πŸ˜… I used the alphabet stitch on my machine for the first time and I love the detail. Stenciled a 🐊 on the back to match the party theme. I have now made this pattern several times, but never for my own kids. I should do something about that 😏 #addittothelist Pattern from #oliverands #littlethingstosew

I didn't get to any Easter dress sewing (πŸ˜•) but I did make a pillow this week so I'm calling it a win. Pattern from @noodlehead531 #handmadestylebook I'm a big fan. Happy Easter, friends!! πŸ’•

I love how this #bonnshirt maxi turned out, especially in this flowy rayon that I've been hoarding for years. Notes: I added 17 inches in length, straight down from the hem. I sized up one from my measurements (which I also did on my previous knee length version). I lowered the bust dart 3/4 inch and now I am very happy with the fit. Pattern by @itchtostitch.

Fresh off the machine...

Can't get @nf_merritts #bonnshirt maxi out of my head. I'm so excited about this one. Only buttons and hem left to go.

I haven't sewn a real dress for myself in a long long time. Sewing is a big investment, time AND money (fabric isn't cheap!) and I was tired of sewing things just to sew them and never actually feeling great about the finished product. I bought this fabric when it was released months ago and finally decided on a pattern that gave me hope. I was drawn to the #bonnshirt by @itchtostitch because of the cup sizing included in the pattern. I wanted it to look like a dress I'd actually buy and I think it does. My only modifications were to omit the sash, because I'm not a tie waist kinda girl, add two inches in length and use elastic in the sleeve hem instead of a band.

A #waterfallraglan seemed like a good idea today. Size 12, #artgalleryfabrics Hello Bear knit.

New covers for a couple of my rollie pollie bean bag chairs. πŸ™ŒπŸΌ I couldn't resist the #riflepapercofabric 😍 Pattern by @made_everyday #rolliepolliemade

I sewed something! And then I dyed it! You can read about my process on the @fabricdotcom blog today, link in my profile. #hemlocktee #ritstudio

I've been dreaming of making a #brindleandtwig harem coverall for months and I finally made it happen. I love it as much as I hoped I would. A quick sew (no lining! no buttons or snaps!) and so darn cute. I chose the sleeveless option so she can layer in the meantime and then wear alone in the summer. Size 18-24.

My baby girl is turning ✌🏼on Thursday and I couldn't let her birthday pass without making a #babydollbasketmade (that I meant to make for Christmas πŸ™ƒ) #itfeelsgoodtosewagain

A pretty little plus quilt for a new baby girl. Fabric: @artgalleryfabrics pure elements solid in icy mint, @leahduncan quietude in dusk for the backing and @robertkaufman interweave chambray in denim for the binding.
