Metallic Gold Soma Intimates

December 16, 2015

After attending Camp Workroom Social a couple of months ago, I had a couple of days to spend in NYC. These days were completely consumed by fabric and notion shopping. I roped Lola into joining me at Spandex World and Mood where we made all sorts of amazing decisions. I left with yards and yards of mesh.

I kind of feel like Superwoman in it tbh.

I used the Papercut Patterns Soma swimsuit pattern. No mods. Just a straight up XS which is suuuuper awkward to pullover. I’m a lil’ busty, so next time there will be a back clasp. Black FOE for the edging.

{Also pictured – the MTT BFF necklace. You can get one here.}

I could not be more excited about the release of grainline studio’s linden sweatshirt. so i made two. my lazy ass couldn’t be bothered with hemming, but i might go back and do that in the near future. at least on the tweed version. that fabric is a bit unravel-y.

fabric: super cheap neon-flecked tweed that i picked up from colorado fabrics. they have fantastic knits, so if you’re in the area i highly suggest you check them out.

this version is especially exciting because paired with my true bias hudson’s it becomes a senior suit! that term was recently dubbed by grainline and refers to matching separates. it might be my fall/winter uniform.

i did a straight size 6 for both versions based on my bust measurement and i’m really happy with fit. i’m washing fabric and sourcing ribbing, so i can make a couple in view A. hooray! see you guys soon.

Neon Underthings

I’m all about sewing intimates right now. My day-to-day wardrobe is black, black, black, so any cravings I have for color show up in hidden pieces. I’m drawn to neons in particular and Spandex House has some rad lacy onesLike chartreuse. Most of the notions were from Sew Sassy. I used foldover elastic, 1/4″ bra straps and random lace trim from my stash.

I didn’t make any alterations, but next time I’ll do an FBA on Bambi. It’s a little small in the cups, but fits well otherwise.

Initially I wanted to pair the chartreuse lace with something less intense than black, but all of my dyeing efforts resulted in colors that didn’t match! It was an interesting process though and I learned quite a bit about dyeing notions. More on that later.



Tons more to come! I’ve finished other intimates sets, some Hudson sweats AND I have a Foxglove in progress. Yay! It’s good to be back.

Moss Making Month

April 4, 2014

Real-life sewing/knitting bff Sara and I have decided that all we’re going to wear this spring/summer are Moss skirts, slouchy tops and Birks. The problem is that I only have one Moss and she has none, so we’ve declared April to be Moss Making Month. We’re going to crank out as many as we can in that time period. You can follow us on Instagram (here and here) for behind-the-scenes stuff because shit’s gonna get exciting. I’m even attempting a leather version and we’ve roped some local friends into joining the fun.

Here’s my pile of potential fabrics. I want a light denim version with gold topstitching, a textured black skirt, grey twill and I’m attempting one in leather!! I really want a black leather mini, so wish me luck. I also just snagged some Steven Alan twills from Mood Fabrics. I couldn’t resist!! Like this one. Ugh. So good.


So grab your pattern here and use #mossmakingmonth on social media so we can get inspired by everyone’s creations!
