Collage features the Gemma Tank in Nani Iro double gauze top left, Washi Dress in Lavish by Katarina Rocella, Gemma again with a long skinny scarf I whipped up with the leftover remnants, the Everyday Skirt in Tim Burton Jack Skellington print, the newest Rae release- "Isla" top in Far Away knit by Ceri Gwen, and the Dove Blouse- a new pattern from Megan Nielson.

It's always so much fun to finish a garment--and doubly so when I can actually wear it! LOL Just keepin' it real.
I get a lot of questions about "which pattern do I start with if I'm a beginner?" and I always say- stick with the Indie designers. They have the fit right, the style is fresh, and there aren't weird wackadoodle instructions like you can get with the big box patterns.
Once you have some experience, the big box patterns are okay, but usually require tweaking and twerking.
I tend to hoard make up / skin care/ bath shit so I had to make this size large train case to hold my stash. This stellar sewing pattern is by Sara Lawson of Sew Sweetness... as if you didn't already know, right?
It looks way more difficult than it is. These would make amazing Xmas gifts.
Fabric is Avante Garde by Katarina Rocella. Stripes are a Robert Kaufman print that I really should just purchase by the bolt.
Stripes are my jam.
I kinda feel like it's BeetleJuice's fault.
