Ajusted Renfrew (with bows!)

I made this little shirt several months ago and then immediately lost it. When I found it and realized why – it was still in the bag I used to carry it to my sewing group meet up to show it off. I must have never unloaded it from the bag. Oh well, also I just got my camera working again but alas, the focus isn’t functioning well on my lens so for these pics…

The “Summer Concert Tee” Downloadable Pattern

Yep, that’s right, I’m launching another pattern download It’s launched! You’ve seen the variations of the shirt to get to this point and now I’m almost ready to release the pattern.

I whipped this shirt up in a couple hours. You can see the first version of my self drafted top here. It’s basically the same idea as last time but I shortened the sleeve cuffs. The fabric is a feather printed, rayon jersey from…

Ooops, I’m a little late on this one. But I think I have an excuse – I was out of town all weekend for a wedding so I wasn’t able to blog (but I was able to wear my Macaron dress for the wedding. It’s nice to have clothing that serves a purpose in your wardrobe). The Goal: Anyway, even if I am a little late I have been wearing my “One Week, One Pattern”…

Sleeve Experiments – Simplicity 2956

A few weeks ago, the lovely Rachel from Always a Project sent me a few patterns in the mail. Thanks Rachel!! So of course I had to try them out starting with Simplicity 2956. I wanted to try this sleeve design which I had seen on some RTW shirts but that I had never worn or made. I changed a couple parts of the pattern, though. I made the basic v-neck t-shirt design but I…

Flow-y Floral Summer T-shirt

I love t-shirts. So comfy and easy to wear. And I especially like “dressed up t-shirts.” It doesn’t have to be anything fancy, maybe a different neckline or gathered sleeves or a fun print. Something to make a shirt a little less plain. I based the design of this shirt on Simplicity 2261 which I used last week to make this green t-shirt. Really, I used the pattern for no other reason than the pieces…
