If I tell you that I have a new favorite dress every time I post, it might get annoying, right? Well, this one is the perfect staple dress for me: it’s made in a knit (super comfortable), it has a fitted bodice, short sleeves and a gathered skirt (my go-to silhouette, see for instance this dress (fr) or this one) and it’s electric blue (which has replaced black and navy as a neutral in my wardrobe, cf. this or this).
Under the sea, under the sea…When the sardine begin the beguine it’s music to meee (it’s music to me!) What do they got? A lot of sand, we got a hot crustacean band! Each little clam here know how to jam here, under the sea… After my first successful attempt at making swimwear (with the Bombshell swimsuit), I dived straight into my dream project: a two-piece swimsuit inspired by the outfit of Ariel, the Little Mermaid!
My week in France, with close to freezing temperatures when I visited my grandmother in the north, left me sick and dreaming of Fall sewing. But now that I’m back to the heat of North Carolina, forget the flannel, it’s time for linen skirts!
To go to my friends’ wedding last week, I wanted a summer dress that would be simple and comfortable, but still a bit fancy. I chose Deer&Doe’s Centaurée, which is the perfect pattern for this with its pieced bodice and double straps; plus, it’s not too tight at the waist, so I was able to indulge in eating cheese (I was only in France for a week after all!).
At the beginning of the Summer, when I finally had some time to get back to sewing, I really wanted a simple and easy project. I had this fabric that I had planned to turn into a Deer&Doe Réglisse dress for a while, so I turned on my speakers, put West Side Story in the background, and a few days later, I had a new dress!
