• Notions in blue. Today I'm thinking about how I want to set up my new studio. I want to be intentional about the decor; my current studio has grown and changed out of necessity and budget as my business has grown, with furniture and decor borrowed from other spaces or purchased (often haphazardly) to fill needs quickly. But since I have a blank slate in our new house, I find myself craving a plan, even if budget won't let me execute it immediately. Now that I know how my business works and what I need to function in a space, I can contemplate how I want it to look and to feel, and that's a luxury I'm thankful for.
  • Dreaming of weather warm enough to wear my #marigolddress with split sleeves again! This one is from Kristin @superiorhandmade - I love that little slice of unexpected that this type of sleeve adds.
  • My studio is starting to be in boxes, y'all. For those of you who haven't seen the story (go to the Home highlight button on @mellysews) we're moving to a new house in two weeks - we're actually scheduled to close on Friday. So before I started boxing I did a video tour of my studio; check out the link in stories today to find it.
  • Alyson's #MarigoldDress peplum top has the little girl in me wanting to steal it because IT'S COVERED IN PEGASUSES! Or should that be pegasi? What is the plural of pegasus anyway? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Well, whichever one is correct it's also correct to say @alysonwonderlan has made her shirt entirely of awesome.
  • And wearing my first 2019 make. I ❤️ the Blanc T-shirt for being a quick sew, so I can still sneak sewing time in when I'm in the midst of packing up both my studio and my house to move!
  • I love how every photo in Sylvia's feed is just bursting with the joy of handmade! If you aren't following @theravelout you should be - so much inspiration, like this hack she added to the #shorelineboatneck.
  • My finished #BlancTshirt - first make of 2019 🙌 This one was from gray heather cotton spandex that I overdyed with pink to get that heathered gray and pink finished look.
  • Wow! @sweeterthancupcakesblog grabbed an amazing photo of her perfectly styled #BSPCatalinadress 😍😍😍 Love it!
  • First make of 2019 - a #blanctshirt to which I added a neckband, which is my favorite finish lately. So much so that I added this piece to the Blanc pattern. To get it, just visit the place you got the original Blanc. If that was our Facebook group, check the files there. If you purchased the pattern, log into your account and look for a file named BlancNeckband.
  • Love these creative sleeves! You could sew this using the #rivageraglan pattern and add gathered cuffs to the ends of the sleeves after cutting the sleeves on the elbow length lines.
