You guys, WOW. Y'all love the 2-in-1 dress concept! πŸ˜™πŸ™πŸ’“. I though you might enjoy a little #metamorphicdress parade, thanks to my amazing testers. In general, you'll see the dress and its reverse in subsequent photos. Katy of @mysweetlittlelife has this to say about her Metamorphic: "It is quickly the most worn dress I've ever made. I wear it over longer dresses and over jeans or with socks and boots! Don't tell but I wore it THREE days last week!" πŸ˜‚ Tap each photo for credits. #sewingisselfcare #sedimentarycapsule

Thankfully my kids enjoy turning the pages on their own while I read aloud to them. Much progress had been make on my #veronikacardi this weekend thanks to picture books! Pattern by @soveryshannon, yarn is @quinceandco Fox. Dress is my upcoming pattern from my #sedimentarycapsule, the #metamorphicdress.

I'm taking this *almost* complete new design out for a spin during this weekend's quick beach trip. I only had to pack one thing! The #metamorphicdress is gray, with a funky, layered hem on one side (with eventual patch pockets) ... flip it inside out and it's a simple LBD with in-seam pockets! 😍 I made it in stonewashed denim from @stonemountainfabric , which literally makes it feel like I'm wearing a vintage sheet. Seriously dreamy. #sedimentarycapsule

My #tegnasweater is done and I think it ranks right up there as one of my favorite makes ever. The process was a delight, and the finished garment couldn't fit more perfectly. I made a size M (I am a 35" bust) and kept it pretty cropped - partly because I only had one skein of this beautiful yarn all the way from Germany (@welthase ) and mostly because I love the look of a cropped top over a dress. My raw silk #metamorphicdress fits the bill. #sedimentarycapsule #sewliberated

My friend @madebyrae got me thinking about capsule wardrobes, and their apparent lack of color. I propose this, for those who strive to curate a capsule wardrobe:
1.) Think about what you would bring on a three week vacation in a carry on bag. Pretend you are on vacation (or, ideally, actually go on one πŸ˜‰) and take photos of all of your favorite combos for reference.
2. ) Choose colors that tap you into how you want to feel. I NEVER wake up wanting to feel "neutral." More likely, I wake up wanting to feel bad ass, artistic, thoughtful or cozy. Black and denim make me feel resilient; rust, lavender, mauve and forest green help me feel creative, and deep gray is my cozy color.
3.) Figure out a family of colors that go together and look good next to your skin. I have a weird combo of olive skin, blue eyes, and dark-yet-coppery hair, so don't assume you can box yourself into a color profile. Go to a yarn store with good lighting and a mirror and put those skeins righ next to your face!
4.) Release yourself from the feeling that you must have a capsule wardrobe in order to be a good, conscious person. It works for some people, not for others. The important thing is that you know what you'd pack to feel fabulous on vacation, and that ALL the clothes in your closet make you feel confident and beautiful in your body as it is NOW. Not when you lose x pounds. 😚

I'm wearing my #gemmatank in Nani Iro fabric and my newly designed/sewn #arenitepants that will be part of my #sedimentarycapsule, of which the #metamorphicdress is a part. I love them - flat-felled seams, big pockets, sand washed rayon and stretchy knit cuffs.

I missed my #metamorphicdress this weekend. It's already heading off, along with my original pattern pieces, to be graded into a full spectrum of sizes for all shapes of beautiful bodies. πŸ’• #patternmaking #sedimentarycapsule #sewliberated

I like my pockets deep, lined with something unexpected, and full of flowers. This is the first iteration of my #gypsumskirt pattern, part of the #sedimentarycapsule collection. Can you believe that this will be my first skirt pattern? Crazy ... Sew Liberated has been around for 10 years! (Double crazy!) Fabric is silk noil, dyed with logwood, and the pockets are lined with leftover fabric from my most recent #stratatop. (See more in my story!)

Unsurprisingly, the sandwashed rayon reversible #metamorphicdress was in its element at the beach this weekend! Oh my goodness, friends ... I seriously can't wait to get this design into your creative hands! I couldn't love a dress more. #patternmaking #sedimentarycapsule

Another day, another "muslin" in creamy, raw silk. I was just thinking that I could use more cream in my life when my coffee seemed to have heard me and misunderstood ... dripping itself right onto my top. πŸ˜‚ I guess I'm sticking to the original plan ... waiting on my indigo vat supplies to arrive from @avfkw ! (The top is layered over my #washidress in cotton ikat.) #patternmaking #patterndrafting #sedimentarycapsule #stratatop
