Me Made: The Waterfall Raglan in Different Fabrics

I’ve started slowly working on my fall/winter wardrobe. I have a couple of basic solid sweatshirts, sweaters, and long sleeve tees that I made and bought last year. Since I have some basics to start with, I decided to make long sleeve tees with interesting details. I started by making two waterfall tees. I love the long fitted sleeves paired with the loose, draped ruffle. (If you want to see the comparison picture go to the end of the post.)

I have been dreaming about this style of dress for a long time. I remember pinning something similar and waiting for the right fabric and pattern to come along. I thrifted this fabric this summer which kind of got the ball rolling. But I made some mistakes during the process and had to redo it three times. I hated redoing it, but I knew I would only wear it if I redid it. I’m happy I redid it,

Fall might be my very favorite season. I love Halloween and looking forward to the winter holidays, I love the cooler temperatures, and how there are so many fall things to do. There’s also two fall birthdays in our family which is lots of fun. I didn’t love Fall until after I finished school and realized how great Fall actually is when you don’t worry about school and homework.

Me Made: Floral Tania Culottes

This is the most comfortable and flattering way to wear shorts. I have a chambray version that I wear with all my patterned tees, and this is my fun floral version that I wear with all my solid tees. I made these floral culottes earlier in the summer and wore them weekly, and now I’m finally getting around to blogging about it.
We went on a little family trip this summer,

Me Made: Navy Pencil Skirt + Giveaway

I have something to confess: I made this skirt almost one year ago. I needed a basic knit skirt and the ladies from Simple Simon and Co were testing this pattern. I love having a little incentive for something I need. I love the ease of making it and the ease of wearing it. It might be a little boring in blogland to make a navy solid pencil skirt, because it isn’t interesting or patterned,

Me Made: Bamboo Rayon Harbor Knot Tee

Even though I have plans to make one more summer garment, I’ve already planned out my Fall wardrobe and finished my first piece this weekend. I wanted to start by making some weather transitional tops. Items that are warmer than my regular tees and that’ll work nicely with warm layers. I started with a half sleeve knotted tee made from a gorgeous bamboo rayon spandex.

Me Made: Striped Rayon Willamette + Using Fabric as Interfacing

I have so much to say about this shirt and this fabric. It shows my indecisiveness when it comes to fabric I really, really love. Or maybe it shows the benefit of waiting a long time before using fabric.

I bought this rayon challis fabric two or three years ago. I saw it on fabric.com* and fell in love with it immediately. I didn’t have plans for it and didn’t really need it,

Versatile Wardrobe Planner + Free Printable

I’ve been on a quest to love my wardrobe and only make garments that I love to wear. I don’t want to make anymore “closet orphans” or “unworns“. I feel like this has been a really long process for me. I started working towards it two years ago and while it was put on hold for a pregnancy and year of nursing, I feel like I’m doing better than I ever have.
