Pattern Mixing and Wool for Spring

I wanted to get one last wear in of my wool skirt before it would be deemed ridiculous to be wearing wool. Though with the way this winter played out, most of the time it was ridiculous to be wearing wool. Oh well. I paired the skirt with one of my favorite shirts that I… Continue reading Pattern Mixing and Wool for Spring

Put a Button on it

I have a small obsession with covered buttons. They add such a tailored, finished feel to any project. I think most people think of them relating to clothing, I’m included in that, but they also look great on┬ádrapes and roman shades and pillows. They would pretty much look great on anything. Adding dressmaking details to… Continue reading Put a Button on it

A Progress Report

I stated in my goals for 2016 that I was making my sister’s wedding dress, my bridesmaid dress, and my mom’s mother of the bride dress. This is ALL I am working on right now. Not really.

I have a tendency to be cold natured and didn’t want to spend my day shivering. Typically people would… Continue reading Layered Up

After I finished them I wanted to make lace overlay everything: dresses, more panels, roman shades, dresses. That’s a good project, something that leaves… Continue reading Lace Overlay

The entire dress ended up being made twice, and not to be outdone, the photoshoot required a reshoot as well. At least there was consistency throughout! I have loved this navy and tan houndstooth fabric from the… Continue reading Houndstooth Dress (Original Design)

Before delving into this post, I want to start by giving respect to the bloggers that make their photoshoots look good. You know the ones. They look stunning and confident walking down a street with sunglasses and purse in toe, onlookers don’t even phase them. Teach a class on how you do this. I would… Continue reading Erin Li-Sik and the Blustery Photoshoot

Original Dress Design

I have had this post planned for about 4 months… oops. Better late than never, right? This dress is one of my favorites. I designed and made it a few years ago, and it is still a piece that I love because of its comfort and ease of wearing. It’s bra friendly, yay! Long enough… Continue reading Original Dress Design
