Handmade Wardrobe Update

So here's what I've done so far.
Waistband Dress: This is the first dress from the pattern I made. I hate using muslin because I'd rather just alter the piece and wear it myself if it's a flop. I actually like the shape of this one a lot. I will be creating a wider skirt and adding the buttons to the next one. The fabric will not be the same either. I'm planning on a solid mint for this one.
Lace Collared Shirt: I actually love this one. And I was able to source both the lace and fabric from my local fabric store. Yesssss. Being the first one, I always make it my size. Sadly, this one is one size too small. Must make more ASAP.
Circle Skirt: I have been sitting on this fabric for over a year. I love this shape. I'd like to do it in a simpler fabric too. I'm feeling rather shy these days.

So there's where I stand for now. I'd love to see what projects you're working on! Link me in the comments.


  1. I want to start wearing tea-length skirts this summer. the circle skirt comes close to what I'm looking for. you are inspiring me to get my but out the door and down the road to Joanne fabrics! -Lara (p.s. I don't know how to set up an "account" and that's why i'm listed as anonymous. )


I love hearing from you! No need to be shy.
