Selfish Sewing Week at my house so I decided to dedicate this week to refreshing my spring wardrobe. I bought this Melody Miller Cotton + Steel Mustang the minute it came out intending to turn it in to a border printed skirt but it's been languishing on my shelf. Last summer was all about the Everyday skirt but I didn't want to fuss with matching the print on the side panels. After a trip down the Pinterest rat hole I found this awesome tutorial from Cotton + Curls. Since I had absolutely no confidence in my ability to get this right on the first try I decided to use this Anna Griffin Carmen print for a wearable muslin. It has a Lilly Pulitzer vibe but I wouldn't be devastated if I messed it up (and could always just cut it up into quilt blocks...)
Marden's last summer. I love how professional it looks and it's so easy I'm finishing all my hems this way from now on.
Smitten by January Hart... I LOVE her style!
Washi dresses but I realized I really don't enjoy making clothes as much as I enjoying making quilts so I'm taking a break and letting my pin pricked body heal. Next week is going to be all about quilting but hopefully before summer arrives I'll add a few more handmade items to my closet. I'm off to an excellent start!
Thank you so much to Rachel at Imagine Gnats for hosting Selfish Sewing Week and pushing me to get out of my usual quilty grind:-)
