When I saw this beautiful aqua/indigo shirt-weight fabric a year ago, I knew it would make a lovely, flowing blouse someday. I bought some yardage. Then I left it on the shelf.
I bought these silver buttons to embellish the blouse, and added a bit of hand-stitching.
I love wearing this blouse with the shell-and-turquoise earrings that are a gift from/tribute to my stepdad.
It's been a long time since I've sewn clothes, yet here are some more items I've sewn!
I'm going on a cruise(!) in a couple weeks, to celebrate my mom's birthday with my mom, my sisters and some of their family members, and Bethany and Poppy. When I saw this navy knit with sailboats on the sale table at the fabric store, I just had to make myself a summer dress. Is it too cheesy for a cruise?
Bethany asked me ages ago to make this Wiksten top for her. This fabric is from Africa, via a friend who was cleaning out her craft closet. (If it fits you, Bethany, I'll make more. Kathryn, Do you want one, too?)
I used more African fabric to make this dress for Poppy. I don't know if it'll fit her, or if she'll like it, but I'm having fun making it!
Spring break is over, back to school tomorrow.
