Bike Belcarra Blouse

Share

OH YES I DID IT. Another one. I’m not even counting anymore, is this my 5th, my 6th Belcarra? I DON’T KNOW. But it’s love and I can’t get enough of it. I grabbed this fabric from Girl Charlee fabric thinking it was knit (reading the description, why would I do that?) and was very […]

Megan Nielsen Tania Culottes: Fail

What is up with me and shorts that we just cannot get along? My last project that I considered a quasi-complete fail was a pair of shorts (which I saved by wearing it to golf). But this pair? It has no salvation because I MADE IT TOO SMALL. DAMN IT. I followed the instructions and […]

By Hand London: Anna and Charlotte Set

Share

Talk about an exciting make! I bought this fabric for a By Hand London Charlotte skirt and was terrified I didn’t have enough fabric to make this skirt. I even decided to skip the peplum part (which I was going to put at the bottom) because I didn’t think I had enough fabric, but in […]
