Closet Case Cielo Top

This Closet Case pattern is the bomb. It’s so simple and easy to wear. With a little extra length it can be work appropriate; in a sheer fabric it can go to the bar. I could probably wear this in early pregnancy and definitely breastfeeding friendly. What can’t this top do? LOOOOOOOOOVE. Pattern: Closet Case […]

Another Kalle shirt!

How many of these have I made at this point? Doesn’t even matter, I love throwing these shirts on with jeans or shorts. I really should invest in making one up in a quality, drapey fabric that can transition to work. This really is one of the most perfect top patterns. Pattern: Closet Case Patterns Kalle […]

True Bias Ogden camis, x2

I resisted as long as I could, but I finally broke down and bought the ubiquitous Ogden cami. And thank God I did! This top is so popular for good reason– I LOVE basic patterns that can be endlessly customized by varying fabric choice, length, straps, adding peplums or inserting a full lining to make […]

True Bias Roscoe Blouse

I learned a lot from my first go-round with the Roscoe dress– namely, there’s a little too much ease for my personal style. So for this follow up, which was inspired by a Sézane dress, I heavily modified the pattern to reduce the ease. This has easily become one of my most worn me-mades. Pattern: True […]

A pair of Grainline Hadley tops

This is my second Grainline Studio pattern- the first, the Portside Travel Set, is freaking awesome and I’ve already sewn at least 4 sets of duffel bags, dopp kits, and pouches. My first apparel projects from this pattern company didn’t disappoint, either; I really love this Hadley pattern as it is simple but includes thoughtful […]

Aime Comme Marie: ‘Miss’ top

I can’t for the life of me find any pictures of myself wearing this shirt! Suffice it to say, I love it. The fabric is FREAKING AWESOME. Wish I would’ve bought more; will definitely go back the next time we visit Argentina. This pattern is basically the French Ogden cami; they’re both great, versatile, and […]

Transition top: Vogue 1507

I am really making a concerted effort to sew more separates, as I have this tendency to sew dress after dress after dress. And since I’ve seen so many beautiful versions of this top on Instagram, I finally grabbed myself a copy of Vogue 1507 during a recent JoAnn sale. Living in a desert, I […]
