From the first pattern I made with George + Ginger it was love. Kristi makes suuuuuper easy patterns to follow and they speak to my boho-spirit style. For the G + G summer blog tour I’m rocking a modified “Thankful Top” plus the “Hot Pants” that released last summer.
G + G Summer Blog Tour
Modified Thankful Top
Y’all it’s hot outside!!! And you know what’s really in right now? That deeeep armhole. So I opted out of sleeves and deepened my armcyce for that trendy look. And then I left it unhemmed like the rebel I am!
I love this deep V in the back. It makes me feel super sexy! You can’t see it here but this pattern has a hi-lo hem that covers the booty perfectly!
Listen friends: thick thighs save lives! Don’t you forget it! I’m out here saving countries with my thighs and these Hot Pants are here to put them on display!!!!
All jokes aside: these are my fave shorts. I love how they’re a little loose but really tailored around the waist area—no gaps here!
I love how these pair together with the high-waisted, tucked in look. Throw these on with some sandals and you’re ready for the heat this summer!
So tell me: what’s on your summer sewing list?
Summer is here! Ok, well technically it’s still spring but according to these temps in Atlanta, spring took the season off. It’s hot and my kids are feeling it. They have been begging me to make them something so I whipped up these two pieces from Sansahash!
2018 Sansahash Summer Blog Tour
I love blog tours–especially when I hack the patterns into being something that are both easy and really versatile. Having two super girly girls, Sansahash has the perfect patterns for me to work with. They’re all really feminine and offer such versatility with fabric.
When I saw this pattern at it’s release, I fell in love. At the time I was as confident in my sewing skills as I am now and thought I would never be able to make it. Wrong! The Kamaria comes as a top, romper or dress. It’s really just the cutest ever. This is the pattern I used for my middle child aka the romper hater.
Since being able to walk, she’s shared her disgust with rompers non-stop. But I LOVE the look of the little romper! So I made the top and created standalone shorts with the pattern pieces. Instead of adding the elastic around the legs to create a bubble effect, I left them open giving them a culotte look. It. Is. Love!!!
This Mila pattern is one of the easiest looking dresses ever. I saw a little girl wearing something similar a couple of weeks ago and couldn’t wait to make one for my oldest. Mini love twirling and spinning and this dress was made for it.
Instead of making it with the lining per the instructions, I banded the arms and neck. It’s super hot in Atlanta so I didn’t want my girl to be a sweaty mess with the lining. Plus, that burrito roll technique is not a fave of mine!
