Happy Sunday makers! It’s been a little bananas around here this week. We launch our new pattern tomorrow (so. excited.) so I’ve been trying to get all that ready while Alex is on vacation. I seriously have no idea how I did anything before she started working with me and have been a little crazed. In addition, I’ve been spending every spare moment at my new place overseeing the little kitchen reno we’re doing and painting, painting, painting. I am 100% covered in paint while I type this. When it rains, it pours (paint).
Here’s what you’ve been up to…
I am OBSESSED with espadrilles right now and love the ones Melissa made over on Fehr Trade. If you don’t feel like DIYing a pair, I have high praise for Mumi Shoes on Etsy; everything is handmade in Spain and I’ve been wearing mine non-stop.
A few great Kimono jackets from Liesl (note the espadrilles!)
Such a pretty floral Poppy Dress from Debbie.
Isn’t this a gorgeously simple dress? I need that pink linen in my life!
Speaking of linen: nice pants Peter!
I frantically mad ea red silk Kielo dress for a wedding last weekend; I love this gray one from Jasika and need to 100% copy this black jersey number from My Handmade Wardrobe.
This sleeveless Nettie Dress from Helen’s Closet is rad.
A sweet shirtdress from Judith.
All the heart eyes for Tasha’ s hidden pockets in her Kelly Anorak.
Hallelujah! Jenny wrote a GREAT post on how to cheaply print copyshop PDF patterns!
I am definitely going to print out this guide to fabric shopping in LA from Sew DIY if I ever make it down there.
I love Bob Dylan inordinately; his acceptance lecture for the Nobel Prize he won last year for literature is priceless.
