Summer's in Full Swing Now!
I loved my last paper bag waist pants so much I knew I had to make another pair when I saw this wonderful tropical print from Sew Much Fabric . Rayon poplin has the perfect weight and drape for pants with pleats, a full skirt or swishy dress. It's an amazin...

Molten Lava Tank Dress
My original thought for this yummy rayon knit called Lava from Sew Much Fabric  was to make a top to go with the linen suit from my last blog post. However, it was nudging me in the direction of a dress instead because it wanted to be shown off. (Yes, I rea...

My Easter Confection
If this skirt and top look eerily familiar, that's because they are a deux over from my last post! When I find pieces that work well together it's a given that I will make them again right away. No exception with this Burda Style skirt (01 2018 #121) and kn...
