Month: April 2017

10 Minute Silk Scarf!

HI, Fashionistas!

I made a 10-minute scarf using leftover from the silk top I made last month. Basically, I ordered 2 yards of the fabric, and whatever was leftover was 2 long skinny rectangles. I seamed them together to create one long skinny rectangle and then hemmed on all four sides.

 

The fabric is a silk cotton blend that I previously used HERE. I styled the scarf with all white and a nude pump. This pretty print deserves to the the focal point of the outfit 🙂

It was so easy to make and so cute! Love these instant gratification projects! Have you every used leftover scraps to make something fun? Let me know in the comments below!

Here is the original silk top of which I used the leftovers.

April is a really busy sewing month for me. I just wrapped up a mommy and me outfit and I am starting another one that I will share with you next week! Hope you are well!!

XOXO

I’m sew very late :) A year in review- 2016

HI Loves.. I am SO late in writing this post, but better late than never right? In my defense,  I am getting it done before the end of the 1st quarter. so It’s all good.

As always I wanted to reflect on the year gone by, but Jan, Feb and March have come and gone. and I still haven’t sat down and done that.. so here goes:

Here are all my 2016 makes..

Skirts: I was honestly surprised that I only made 3 skirts last year!

Box pleat circle skirt , white linen maxi, and white denim pencil skirt. All three skirts were self-drafted.

Drafting skirts is the easiest if you are interesting in pattern making. I talked about the skirt sloper class HERE

Dresses: I made a total of six dresses (wohoo)

Summer/ Spring:  blue repurposed dress, Easter dress, yellow linen dress (maybe I started the dramatic sleeve trend :0)

Fall/ Winter:

LBD, Sweater dress, leopard print dress

Pants: Just one: Denim pants

Tops: Tank top, white peplum, scuba knit top, and Leopard print crop top

 

The animal print top was awesome. I had an AHA moment as I experimented with the neckband on a Monday night and ended up with this amazing tutorial you can check out here:

If you like the video, please subscribe to my youtube channel as I plan on adding a lot more content this year 🙂

Outerwear: I made a boucle/wool blend jacket and a DIY wool cape:

Yes- That is my hair up in a bun and it made me go from 5 feet 4 to 6 feet in a matter of minutes 😀

And finally, sewing for little people!

I made five dresses for my daughter:

linen dress, minnie mouse dress, easter dress and blue dress (I dont think I blogged this one)

I made a 5th dress for her to go using the same fabric as the wide leg denim pants but I never got around to blogging them, but you can see it here

 

I also did some sewing for Haiti

That is ALL Fashionistas.. So what do you say? I think its a good amount of sewing for one year. I dont know that I will ever be content with the amount of sewing I get done, but its nice to look back and reflect on a production and fun sewing year!

Want to see my makes from the previous year? They are documented HERE

I’m still working on that musln peplum I started. I started filming a tutorial on how to ease the princess seams and I have to say, the geeky stuff like lighting and positioning is not my strength, but I will try to bring a clear and concise video to you next week.

Have a LOVELY weekend.

XOXO
