I'm in luuuurrrrvvveee! The @grainlinestudio #willowtank is pretty much my new bestie. #bae 😍 I've made two so far: this white crop version in embroidered cotton is the second, and you can swipe through to see my first in hand dyed textured cotton. Ok, so the fit was pretty much perfect off the top, and all I did was take a small wedge out of the back neckline to get to absolute perfection. I will definitely be making more of these, even though I've had to accept that I hate bias binding. I do! But who cares, because darted tank achievement unlocked. Can I just make a wack of Willows for my #SummerOfBasics ??

I've been cutting into my first avocado-dye, shibori folded fabric batch, with sweet plans for pretty things for my wee peanut. This is my first make; a simple little ruffle tunic. If you checked out my stories you'll know I started out making an @elemenopatterns Ruffle Romper, but about halfway through decided to change course and eventually found myself here. I love it. Kind of want one in my size! Swipe through to get a closer look at the gauze-y lightness of the fabric. So excited by this make! .

Today was recital day, and the first time I've worn my @grainlinestudio #scouttee and @megannielsenpatterns #brumbyskirt made with this crazy floral @blackbirdfabrics rayon together as a set. I think I've worried in the past that they looked a bit dowdy as a pair, but today it felt like the perfect music teacher outfit...and I was breezy cool during two long hot recitals 😜 (Also, can you tell I didn't take this photo myself? I'm actually real smiling!) All this to say, two piece sets and hubby pic for the win! .

I'm hunting for the perfect easy wear summer tank, and I love me a good peplum, so I was pretty committed to making the @inthefolds #peplumtop for #peppermintmagazine work for me. I did an fba, added darts, adjusted the length and then made this wearable muslin. The result: meh. It's wearable, but I mangled the insides trying to work out fit and there are still a few issues, not the least of which is that the armholes are still too low, even after taking in an inch off each side. Sigh. I'll likely come back to it at some point, but in the meantime the hunt for the perfect swingy darted tank continues. I have the Willow on my table now, and I have high hopes for it! Has anybody else struggled with this pattern with their body type? .

There's been a lot of music in my life recently, which is wonderful, but it's meant less time for sewing. I needed a small project, so I decided to summer-fy my fave rtw jeans by embellishing them with some trim I had floating around. I think I'm digging them, even though my husband laughed when I asked him what he thought πŸ™„ Joke's on him though....I'm thinking of jazzing them up further with some fun ribbon trim! .

I've been a bit quiet on IG lately, but not for lack of sewing! I'm so excited to share my tester version of @ready_to_sew 's new pattern, Joanne. It's a fun little pattern for shorts or culottes, with distinctive pockets, two waistband options, and a two-piece back ripe for colour blocking or stripe play. I made mine in a flowy Indian cotton that, while lovely to wear, was an absolute b!@$h to sew 😑 (Don't look too closely at my topstitching...this material did not take curves well at all) but in the end I'm happy with these. They're soooo comfy, the fit was great with no adjustment, and the roomy pockets are perfect! Congrats Raphaëlle on a fantastic new pattern! .

#Memademay17 Day 24: @truebias #hudsonpants in rayon/cotton and a rtw...ahem...maternity shirt πŸ™ˆ It's my only chambray top and it goes with so many bottoms! Obviously it's time to make one 😜 .

New @paddleboatstudio #thecarsondress πŸ™Œ This was my #memademay17 outfit for Mother's Day last week, and I'm impatiently waiting for the rain to end so I can wear it again! I made this with a stripped poly-cotton that I got for dirt cheap from the clearance shelves at Fabricland. It's a bit see-through, so the skirt is lined, which I'm loving because it makes the skirt super swishy 😊 I'm pretty obsessed with this pattern! .

The fruits of my Friday night: first time dyeing with avocado! I've been meaning to do this forever, and had stored avocado skins/pits and mordanted my fabric in soy milk many moons ago. So happy I finally just did it, and am already planning my experiments for the next time. This could get addictive. Now, what to make??? .

#mmmay17 Yesterday I stayed in my bathrobe and #memade pyjamas all day, but today I'm running errands in my trusty #martheblouse and #tamarackjacket with rtw jeans and thrifted clogs. .

Just finished a set of leggings for Miss Elsie. This is the @elemenopatterns #pocketjogger and it's a pretty addictive little pattern. So much so that I made a matching set for Elsie's cousin/bestie! πŸ™ˆπŸ‘― .

#mmmay17 is chugging along! Today I'm wearing my #sauniocardigan by @namedclothing with a #memade leather clutch that I had completely forgotten about until I found it in my closet yesterday! (A copy of one I saw at American apparel that I fell in love with but didn't want to pay for πŸ˜‚) It's perfect for carrying my iPad and keyboard around 😊 The skirt is thrifted and my shirt is by πŸ‡¨πŸ‡¦ makers @twissandweber .
