Quickie sewing.

A little knitting project bag made with some special indigo shibori dyed fabric.

Thanks to some dance class knitting time, I’m well into mitt number two.

I’m about to get stuck into another (hopefully) quickie project. The Plaintain tee from Deer & Doe!!

A Scoop & Artful Grooming

I looooooove sewing with knits!!!
After working on my Coppelia muslin (it was PERFECT….until I pressed the neckline and now it’s all crumpled at the back neck 😦 ) I wanted something super quick to work on.
Enter, Skirt as a Top’s, Scoop Tee.

Skirt as a Top, Top!

It’s, essentially, the most awesome little white tee in my wardrobe! I took in the side seams just a bit (right where my body naturally curves in between my boob area and belly) an excess of fabric there really bugs me. I followed the directions exactly with the exception of the hem, which I just serged and left un-hemmed. That collar is one of my best efforts. A great staple. So super simple. And QUICK!

Skirt as a Top, Top!

I could use half a dozen. They’re the perfect thing to cover the waist/hips on those slightly low rise pants days and clingy in the right spots, while skimming in others. Which is partially down to this mystery fabric, which I dug out of a bin in the Garment District. I have it in two more colors. The edges DO NOT CURL. Amazing!

Skirt as a Top, Top!

This burst of sewing came from a fit of creative inspiration courtesy of one Jean-Michel. I was inspired to add a little Basquiat flair to my life and did so in the form of a King Pleasure mani!

Skirt as a Top, Top!

The red polish, with the perfect name (I Red a Good Book!!!) and that little white crown brought a smile to my face, all day.

And last night, I added even more red to my life when I finally swapped out the buttons on this thrifted cashmere cardi.

I put my little handmade pin on it to complete the art theme!
