if you like making things, let's be friends
This is one of those projects that I made a while back but never blogged about. It was the first Archer that I made, and I decided to do a popover.
A couple of years ago, Kate Spade had a lemon print in their spring collection. I filed it away in my Pretty Things Imagination Folder and moved on.
I made my first Linden last Summer, wore the shit out of it, but never took photos. Maybe someday soon.
Last year, life circumstances got me into a bit of a rut, and I didn't spend too much time sewing. I mean, I still sewed more in 2015 than I ever have in my life.
Yep. It's another one. This one though, is hands down my favorite fabric ever. It's double gauze, it's floral, it's purple with lots of pink in the print. It's perfect.
It's getting hot, y'all.
We had really, really pleasant weather this winter (sorry, northerners). But it looks like it's over. All of a sudden we're back in the 80s, and I assume the humidity is not far behind. So it's time for me to focus on summer clothes.
In general, I gravitate toward fit and flare dresses. I just think they suit my lumpy triangular body shape the most. But as soon as I saw the Cashmerette Appleton pattern, I knew I wanted to give it a try. A pattern drafted specifically for plus sizes, with different cup size options? Yes please!
Some sewers are the type that see a pattern, love it, and look for fabric that will work. I am the opposite. I see fabric, buy it, hoard it, and the search for a pattern that will work.
I saw this fabric online and it just called to me. It didn't hurt that it's called Cat Lady (
I feel like all families have a nickname for pajamas. Jammie's, PJs, jammers. But I've fallen into using P-Jams. It's like a rap name for pajamas.
Hi, I'm Sarah, and I'm a double gauze addict.
Has it really been over a year since I last posted? That seems crazy, but it looks like it's true. So, what happened? I bought a house, moved, got a new job that takes up way more time and effort than my old one...
I actually made this shirt a while ago, in late March. I just haven't photographed most of my newer stuff because I don't have a full length mirror in my new apartment. I need to remedy that soon!
The only thing I've loved more than this dress is my wedding gown. And maybe my Fryes.
