The Lena Horne Dress

The Lena Horne Dress

If you have missed this GEM circulating through the sewing stratosphere then you are living under a rock !! This is Tabitha Sewer's Lena Horne Dress! My first thought after seeing this pattern honestly was, "very cute but not quite my style". Then, women of different shapes, sizes and colors began to show their version and I knew that if nothing else I needed to support my friend!  The Lena Horne Dress I purchased the PDF pattern because I wanted the option of being able to print it again in different sizes later, but I'm having SERIOUS FOMO because I didn't get to experience the CUTE irridescent packaging that the pattern comes in! The construction of the pattern was simple enough. It only had 5 pieces so that was an IMMEDIATE win in my book. Once I completed the pattern I had to decide what type of fabric I wanted to use. One feature of the pattern stands out and that is the ruffle front. I knew I needed to find a fabric that would really

Lace and Shine

This set almost took me out but it was soooo worth it in the end. I purchased both pieces of fabric over a year ago but wasn't sure what I wanted to make with them then so they went into my stash. When I set off on my linen play project I decided it was time to use this beautiful "Linen Look" fabric and I knew EXACTLY what I wanted to do with it. Enters this FABULOUS pant pattern my Mimi G /Simplicity!  Like the fabric, I purchased this pattern the moment it came out but kept it in my pattern stash for the perfect set..... This was it! The shirt pattern was definitely an after thought but I knew it would pair perfectly with the idea I had in my head for the pants ...... I love how this set came out but the top was definitely a doozie. The pattern itself was very easy to put together but the fabric was definitely a challenge to work with! The first time I put the top together I put the sleeves on backward so I had to red

I picked up this fabric a few weeks ago after folding to the peer pressure of Tabitha Sewer and Brittany Jones!  :) Here are there versions of this fabric Tabitha Sewer   Brittany J Jones   The real story behind this fabric is that I originally purchased the black and white striped linen fabric, seen in my last Linen play post. While out shopping for the fabric I saw this beautiful Multi-Color Fabric Linen. I picked up this linen but put it back down because I'm just not a color person, but then I got home and saw how beautiful the fabric turned out with other garments and I decided I had the perfect make for it, wide leg paper sack pants!  100% Linen Fabric-Multi Stripe The Pattern that I decided to use for this make ........
