Ebony = Love

Some patterns are just too good to resist. Especially when your friends make such awesome versions on release day 🙂 The Ebony t-shirt & knit dress is exactly what I was trying to create when I made my black Nettie swing dress but Heather Lou made it even better. The hi-low hem is on point and the sleeve variations give it everything you want and more. I made a straight size 14 after Gillian advised to size down when in between sizes. Next time I’ll shorten it beforehand because this needed a 2″ hem to be sassy. I also have a 2″ sleeve hem. … Continue reading Ebony = Love

Monday Morning Secret Pajamas

Soooo, I´m back 🙂 I´m back at work (part time) and it´s been a real challenge getting things back in rotation.

I even cut the sleeves to match… But I cut the red on top instead of the blue so I didn’t attach them 🙂 I didn’t make any alterations after my previous Nettie, I just graded out to a bigger size in the hips. I used … Continue reading BFF Nettie twins!

I never knew I needed you but now I can’t live without you! Or yes, I made a Nettie!

It took my best friend and a lot of convincing to get me to pose for these pictures but in the end I’d do anything for the sewing community 🙂 I’d been eyeing the Nettie pattern ever since Heather Lou released it, but due to limited funding I held out. Until I swear, it just fell into my inbox! Oh.my.god you guys, sewcialists are so amazing. And especially Hanne who bought this pattern for me as a belated baby gift 🙂 She figured this pattern was just what a new mommy needed and boy, was she right! I immediately got … Continue reading I never knew I needed you but now I can’t live without you! Or yes, I made a Nettie!
