Syrah Skirt, Plantain Tee, Plantain Tank, So Zo Undies, & Puppy PJ Pants!

Alright! So if you saw my post on The Monthly Stitch yesterday, this is mostly the same… but I ended up eeking out two more projects from my piece of pink cotton rib knit while I had it out so here’s everything in one place :) Aaand my title kinda gave it all away…  so do what you will with this post lol In case you missed my post over there, this was my new-to-me outfit for Indie Pattern Month :) It was my first time using a pattern from both of these designers and I’m really happy with how they turned out. DEER & DOE PLANTAIN TEE This tee is everywhere and I finally understand why! I’ve had the pattern downloaded for a while but haven’t gotten around to making it till now. The RTW white tee I have in my closet right now is looking pretty old and sad so I desperately needed a replacement :)… this one fit the bill perfectly! The fabric is a cotton spandex blend knit from Girl Charlee. Same one I used …

Casual Friday: Union St. Tee

Do you have casual Fridays? I don’t, but here’s a little piece of casual sewing on Friday anyway! :) As you can probably tell, these photos were taken on the same day as my bird top. Gotta take advantage of the time and the weather when I have it :) (don’t mind the pups… poor Finny doesn’t get to win very often) Fabric: This was another knit from my knit fix way back when :) It’s a really soft, lightweight knit. It was fun to work with, although super slippery and kind of a pain to keep a hold of when I was sewing the neckline. Pattern: Hey June Union St. Tee. I’m pretty sure the sentiment about this pattern is consistent across the blogsphere – it’s a wonderful pattern! It’s a simple top, but the directions are great. It was my first time with a v-neck, and it turned out a lot easier than I was imagining. The fabric didn’t have a lot of stretch, so I sized up to the medium and I think it …

C is for C. Wonder Seamed Stripes Swing Tee

Hello hello! Welcome to the third installment of my self-imposed A to Z Brand Inspiration Challenge! I’m actually super excited about this make! It’s probably the most well-fitting thing I’ve made yet. Yes, it’s only a t-shirt, but it’s really comfortable and it has a great shape and length. I credit the pattern (see below!). Here was my inspiration: C. Wonder – Seamed Stripes Boxy Tee Theirs: $78 (now out of stock)   Mine: $14 (and I have plenty of fabric leftover for another project) I got 2 yards of this Two Sided Cotton Jersey from Girl Charlee at the same time I got my KnitFix last month. I’d been looking for a good stripe knit for this project for a while and this one worked out perfectly. I love the heavier weight and it has the perfect amount of stretch. I was trying not to worry too much about matching the stripes at the seams, but it actually worked out and I love so much that it did! Don’t mind the hair… I shed… the puppies shed… …

No Motrin No Mission

Meet my pharmacy staff! We recently had t-shirts printed for the pharmacy. Here’s part of what we included on the back, along with the phrase “No Motrin No Mission” :)     I’m sure you can guess which one is me. Oh my goodness, though, they all crack me up.  Tomorrow I have a pre-move home inspection. Basically, they are coming to the house to see what sort of packing materials they’re going to need to bring and what large items they’ll need to pack, etc, etc. It’s all getting very real. We’ll be moving in a couple of months. I’m so excited and yet a little nervous. Getting a license in CA is a nightmare; they finally got back to me after 3 months of waiting to tell me I’m missing something the application specifically says I do not need. And they are impossible to get a hold of. Oh, the fun. Once that part is over, though, I think it will be smooth sailing. I’m going to miss my coworkers here (I mean look …
