Willamette Shirt

I am way overdue on making another Willamette after making my first one in February of last year. My first one was view C, and I made it out of a cotton/linen that was borderline too thick. I lengthened it by 3″, but with mid-rise pants, it still just wasn’t quite long enough for my liking. So I knew for … Continue reading “Willamette Shirt”

Bonn Shirt + #sewrtwstyle

I made my first Bonn Dress last May, and when I tried it on, I knew I had to make the shirt version too. The v-neck mandarin collar is so classic, and the fit is seriously perfect. For any beginner shirt sewists out there, this is a really good pattern to start with. The pattern designer made sure to add … Continue reading “Bonn Shirt + #sewrtwstyle”

Perkins Shirt

There are few patterns that I buy immediately on release day, but the Perkins Shirt by Ensemble Patterns was one of them. When I saw it, I immediately thought of this shirt on my Pinterest board (which may or may not have been her inspiration, who knows), and I had to have it. But first, let’s talk about this tencel shirting (sold … Continue reading “Perkins Shirt”

Reeta Shirt Dress

I first discovered the Reeta Midi Shirt Dress by Named a few months ago. I think I was searching for button up dress patterns because…I’m a little obsessed over here if you haven’t noticed. 😉 The pattern came out last February, so I don’t know how I missed it! Once I found it, I looked up the hashtag in Instagram … Continue reading “Reeta Shirt Dress”

Kalle Shirt

I have once again made a pattern that has been on my make list for a very long time now! And, since this is apparently The Year of the Buttons for me, the Kalle Shirt was high up on my list. This is another Closet Case Files pattern, just like my Carolyn Pajama Top from last month. The pattern has a high-low … Continue reading “Kalle Shirt”

Bonn Dress

I have wanted to make the Bonn Dress by Itch to Stitch ever since it was part of the Indiesew Fall/Winter Collection in 2016. That was back when I was still really intimidated by button up shirts, so I figured it would be a while until I actually made it. I have heard SO many good things about Itch to … Continue reading “Bonn Dress”

Fringe Dress

I have had the Fringe Dress cut out since last September, and it has just been nagging at me for months to just finish sewing it all together! It did turn into winter after I got it all cut out, so I wouldn’t have been able to wear it very much anyways, but I’m so glad to have it finished … Continue reading “Fringe Dress”
