It's officially #autumn and that means I can start sewing with heavier cool weather fabrics. This 3/4 sleeve buttonless jacket is from the1970 #simplcity8850 pattern. The fabric I used was from a wool poncho I thrifted and it happened to be from the same era. .

I made this #morningglorytop from an old #tiedye skirt I had. It's a very thin cotton which will be perfect for the hot August days. I was hoping to make it tie in the back, but I didn't have enough fabric, so this one is a slip on. Next top will tie in the back. .

I needed to make something since it's been a few days without making anything. So I made a few notebook pen holders for the ladies in my book group. Now we won't have to look far when we need a pen! .

So remember that #skoolie patch I made awhile back? Well, it found it's way back into an embroidery hoop! Now the big question is do I add text or more embellishment or leave it be?

So I finished up a skirt pattern from 1973 in a navy twill fabric. It's super crisp and I'm contemplating making the blazer to have a two piece suit. 🤷‍♀️ I really liked the skirt pattern. It was a quick and simple sew. I'll probably shorten it next time. The top is a jersey knit that I drafted from the bodice of my 1940's dress pattern. It turned out pretty good, but if I make the top again I'll alter it.

Well I finished making #voguepatterns #v8811 . It's a really quick sew and I enjoyed working with the 1940's pattern. There's only 4 major pattern pieces with neck and sleeve facings. It's a pull over dress with an option for a side closure. I used a vintage polyester fabric I found in the thrift store and learned why it was so popular. It's so easy to work with! But, it's not the most comfortable fabric to wear.
I'm going to definitely make this dress again and play with the skirt length and fabrics.

New dress in the works! This one will be made from a vintage polyester I found in a local thrift store. The pattern is a reprint from the 1940's and it's a simple pull over dress. As with every pattern I make I have to tweak the waist and hips, which when you're a beginner dressmaker can take awhile. I'm going to try and post progress photos for this one.

I finally finished the wrap dress I've been working on! It's a light weight silk/rayon fabric that feels amazing. It's going to be great on those hot summer days. I even made it pretty on the inside by binding the seams. I cant wait to try the next pattern in my stack.

For those who don't already know, I co-own a Bus/Van Conversion company with my partner @vanlifeconversions . I've been making custom curtains and beds for awhile now and I've finally made a short video to showcase some of my work. I'll just say my sewing work is better than my video work. 😁

I've been working on a wrap dress over the last few days and sadly I have to take the skirt off and redo a few things. The pattern is slightly small for my measurements and altering it has been tricky. I'm new to garment making and it's a challenge. The pattern is a #vintage #mccallspatterns number 3106. The fabric is a luxurious silk/rayon that picked up at our local thrift store for domestic violence survivors. If you have any tips on extending the waist length by a few inches I would greatly appreciate it. 😀

I made a patch! It started off as a hoop embroidery, but I got some kind of gunk on the fabric. So I put glue on the back and cut it out. It's about 3 x 4.25 inches big. And yes those are sequins for the lights. I think I may do more patches in the future. Available for purchase. .

All those thrift store zippers now have homes on these little zipper pouches. They're 3 x 7 inches except for the one odd ball at 3 x 5.75 inches. Perfect to hold a few cards and some cash with your keys clipped to it. DM if you want one. 😀

Finished my baby shoes today. They're a quick make. I'm happy that I went with leather instead of felt for this vintage pattern (Simplicity 2867). Between the material and the colors I get a 1990's Lisa Frank vibe. I think the recipient will love them.

Working on a new hat for myself. The colors so far remind me of #tourmaline and I'm loving it. The pattern is called #alldayberet by Debbie Stroller from Stitch Nation. The yarn I think is a bamboo blend I picked up in a thrift store years ago. Here's hoping the ball is big enough. 😉

One of my favorite sweaters from the thrift store finally started to come undone around the collar. My solution was to embroider the neckline with pretty yarn. Another simple way to keep clothing out of the waste stream.
