I'm so excited to be able to share with you my Open Sleeve mod for the Be Dreamy dress! You know, the dress with endless possibilities, that looks so good on every body type! :D
As soon as it came out, I knew I had to have it. And I had the perfect fabric for it.
Except. That I only had 3 yards- just shy of the recommended yardage- and being 5'10”, I was going to need every bit of it.
Have you ever made a shirt and thought it was just about the most perfect thing ever! And you put it on and feel super good about yourself because it fits and the color is pretty much perfect and your top stitching was on point and it just really feels good! Then you go to take a selfie and look in the mirror and find wrinkles? And not the kind on your face, because those are totally different and I'm not going to tell you any great secrets to prevent that, because that's just part of life. But sleeve wrinkles, when you aren't expecting them, those can almost be worse! Only because you know there was probably something you could have done about them, but what?
Easy? Putting a zipper in? If you’re like me…… zippers freak you out and they do not seem ‘easy’.
But I’ll let you into a little secret. They are SUPER easy! And I’m going to show you exactly how to do that using the Autumn Spice as a base. Here’s the one I created…. My friend didn’t even notice the zip until I pointed it out to her!!!
I am a sucker for baby rompers! Now that summer and warmer weather is approaching, I’m all about romper sewing! Today I wanted to share with you a quick hack to turn the Be the Leader into a bummies style romper with an elastic casing waist by mashing it with the Cape Cod.
When I was sewing the Romper for my daughter I wanted to make a little jacket too for creating a ‘cool’ look. So I started thinking…. And it was pretty easy to change a couple of things to create something new! Of course I have to share that, because maybe you would like to do the same!
Kendall here again!
I’m in love with having pockets on my clothes (who isn’t?) and now, so is my daughter! She’s 22 months, and when I get her dressed in the morning she is searching for “pockee.” Taking this into consideration, I now have to make sure to add pockets to any outfit that I make for her. I have made in seam pockets, welt pockets, and applique pockets without a pattern, and my plan over the next two of my blogs is to teach you the same thing!
