The Hughes Dress is finally here! The Hughes is a surprisingly versatile style that you’ll find yourself wearing constantly. This dress was designed with equal emphasis on wearability and style. The pattern includes options to cut it as a top, above-the-knee length dress, or a midi dress.
This is the first in a new blog series I am calling “What I Made This Week”. I love making things and want to be mindful about setting aside time each week to make and do things just because. I also want to try new types of crafting and making beyond just sewing…but most of my weekly makes will probably be sewing related ;)
One of the most common questions I get about the Vernazza Two Piece is "Do you think I can hack it into a one piece?". The answer is YES! There are several ways you could go about it. I stumbled upon this idea when I was hacking the Lucida Dress Pattern into a top. It is super easy to add the top of the Lucida to the bottoms of the Vernazza!
The bottoms of the Vernazza Two Piece pattern can easily be modified to make a cute and comfortable pair of panties ;) This is a great opportunity to use up those scraps of knit fabric you probably have lying around and it shouldn’t take more than an hour (hour and a half, max) to throw together a super cute pair of undies!
I was recently shopping at a prominent RTW store that I love but that some times charges WAY too much for things you could definitely sew yourself, we'll call it Shmanthropologie. Anyway, I knew instantly that this stunning layer was necessity for my summertime/travel wardrobe and would pair perfectly with the #vernazzatwopiece, but it cost like $140!
Sewing and podcasts are like peanut butter and jelly. While your hands are busy sewing, your mind can be busy learning! I devour podcasts and inevitably end up running out of things to listen to at some point during the week.
The Sunny Dress Pattern is a super versatile pattern that can be cut as a dress, top, and SKIRT! That's right, make an entire wardrobe of Sunny garments. Hacking the pattern into a skirt is pretty simple.
Full disclosure, this is so easy that it is hardly a tutorial. It is, however, a cute gift that I'm sure someone in your life will be thrilled to receive. The trickiest part is finding the right fabric, but that is a fun problem, right?
If you were planning on knitting everyone you love a beanie this holiday season but didn't ever get around to doing the actual knitting, this is the project for you! If you are obsessed with velvet this fall and want to wear it head to toe, this is also the project for you.
The Lucida Dress pattern is a really simple pattern designed to be an everyday dress. But with a few simple changes, it can easily be transformed into something more formal and elegant. Meet the Lucida Maxi! Adding a gathered panel to the hem of the Lucida Dress is super easy.
