• Courtney @sweeterthancupcakesblog in her winter #BexleyDress has great tips for sewing this in French terry. She says, "French terry isn't on the suggested fabric list for the Bexley Dress, but shifting the darts down makes a fabric with less drape work. You could also opt to omit the darts for a more swingy dress. As long as the fabric isn't too thick to add bulk to the darts, shifting them is the only trick needed.⁠"
  • Ordered some solids to fill in some wardrobe gaps. I love this palette. Pantone may say classic blue is the color of the year, but for my closet I think it's going to be these 4.
  • Do you have a uniform? I'm working on some wardrobe planning content using the book The Curated Closet (second time; I did it 3 years ago but I'm refreshing), and that is one of the questions from the book. Lately this seems to be one of mine - graphic tee (a #RivageRaglan in this case, swipe to see it) over leggings with a jacket or sweater thrown on top.
  • @alysonwonderlan used double gauze to make her #EsmaTop and I am so in love with this sleeve. 😍 I have a few Esma hacks I'm excited to get to as soon as I get a chance.
  • The perfect fall photo of the perfect fall #TillerySkirt by @laraours 🍂🍁 And that color will be perfect for Christmas too!
  • It's Fri-yay and I get to spend a few hours of quality time in my studio! I spy a pile of finished mending 🙌 and a new pattern I'm working on, but today I get to do fun sewing for myself and this time is sooooo needed!
  • This #ValettaTop in a cotton gauze has me dreaming of warmer days. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 📷: @kesras_kleider

I would never invest this much love and care into something for me, so the fact that it doesn't fit and it's now mine and I get to make another shirt for my daughter full of so much love, doesn't really bother me. ❤ #iamamaker #handmadechristmas #keepitsimple #diyholiday #sewwithlove #bohemianstyle #valettatop #blankslatepatterns @mellysews
  • Love those bias stripes on Tricia's #AustinTeePattern sewn in a sweater knit 😍

  • One last idea for a #Thanksgivingsew - because if I don't stop, you'll be sewing the day of. If you're not a dress wearer, the #ValettaTop like this one from @mkgstitch is a great option. It's loose and flowy and great to hide a turkey belly 🙂
