Today, I’m back to the Wedding Dress Progress Updates! Come along as I tackle the corselet - the structural underlayer - of the dress, and also wax rhapsodic on boning issues in modern dresses.
This post has been a long time coming: It’s Project Wedding Dress update time! Sit down, brew up some tea, and enjoy the ride! Today’s post covers my Wedding Dress radio silence as of late, along with the drafting of the bodice pattern and building my slate frame.
This week, I’m all about a summer woolen wardrobe! I know it sounds counterintuitive, but hear me out: Once you go merino you’ll never go back - regardless of the time of year! Check out this merino beach dress I made and dyed for a vacation and have ended up falling in love with.
In which our blogger impersonates Macklemore and debuts a project equal parts absurd and amazing - the self drafted, hand tailored, hot pink faux fur coat.
In which our blogger finally gets ‘round to a (Very Belated) post about a canvas backpack. The leather, the hardware, the trials and tribulations of pre-vacation sewing.
In which our blogger starts catching up: A pair of self drafted linen pants (that were a very successful tester), a discussion on the cost of making your own clothes, and some semi-rushed afternoon photos courtesy of daylight savings.
This week, I’ve got a whole set of baby clothes to share with you! Their intended recipient is already nearly grown out of the first size range, but it’s a good thing I’ve made multiple sizes for him!
This week, I’m showing you EVERYTHING I made for my Rarotonga adventure, plus daily snaps of how I wore, what I wore, and what I didn’t.
A quick and easy kimono sleeved top - perfect for summer, in the middle of winter. As you do.
A wearable muslin for frocktails, a birthday dress, a wrap dress test, a dress for the beach, a recycled sari - all in one! I might’ve made an impractical sundress, but I’m making the most of the opportunity.
