(update) WOOHOO!! I was the Winner for Best Pocket!!! The Ishi Dress…at first I was a little uninspired on how I wanted this dress to look. So I turned to my go to for inspiration – Pinterest! I came across this image. You can click on the image for the source…it leads to to a page with lots of foreign wording that i don’t understand :/ Anyway…I thought layered tulle would be perfect for the big side pockets on the Ishi Dress. Next I had to decide on fabric. I spent countless hours searching for fabric that would complement the layered tulle pocket idea but nothing So I decided to keep it simple and use a plain white cotton...
June is Nani Iro Month over at Miss Matatabi. For me this was the perfect excuse to finally buy some Japanese fabric that I’ve been ogling over forever! I must admit this past week was a really good sewing week. I was for once not pumping out a new design, testing it till no end. I seriously almost always make 5-10 versions of each new design and by the end of the process I’m so sick of it and can practically sew it with my eyes closed! So this week I took a break from design and sewed for fun…and I was lucky enough that the girls weren’t sick and were behaving themselves enough to let me sew
How cute are these flat front bloomers?! And the crop top?! I LOVE how this came together!! I was inspired by my friend Ashley’s look for STYLO Magazine Issue 4 and I just had to create something similar for my little fashion diva! See more by my friend Ashley on her blog Sewing Sober and check out STYLO Magazine Issue 4 to see if you can spot more looks using patterns by Lil Luxe Collection.
You’ve asked and asked and now here it is!! A video tutorial for a sleeveless bodice with a lining using the “burrito” rolling method.
(update) WOOHOO!! I was the First Place Winner!!! When I saw Pattern Revolution’s Over the top Challenge, I couldn’t help myself but to want to participate even though I was in the middle of my Holiday blog tour and had already sewn two of every pattern I’ve designed this year. I work well under pressure, so finished up all my sewing, drafted the rest of my blogs for the tour and got to thinking about what I would do for my Over the Top Look.
