The Astair Tee

I am a huge fan of French Navy patterns after making The Stellan Tee and The Orla Dress (both FREE patterns!), so I was completely on board to buy this one. I recently made the Stellan Tee again (with some adjustments), and tried to make it look like the tees from Madewell or this tee from Abercrombie, but didn’t come … Continue reading “The Astair Tee”

Allegro Skirt

I snagged the Allegro pattern from Love Notions a couple months ago with the intent of making this exact skirt, and I’m SO glad that I did!

My skirt was inspired by this skirt (below) that I … Continue reading “Allegro Skirt”

The inspiration dress is from the blog Polienne, and it’s a vintage dress that she found at a thrift store. Polien is a style & travel blogger from Belgium, and I … Continue reading “Shelby Dress”

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”
