A Little Mom & Me Sewing

A Little Mom & Me Sewing

Hi All!

It was time for a little selfish sewing this month. Something that wasn’t underwear, something that would add to my non-lingerie wardrobe. But instead of pure selfish sewing, I decided it would be better if mom and I did a swap and sewed something for each other.

We were both in need of a long-sleeve top. Mom wanted something with a casual, polished style for her upcoming vacation to Cali, and I was looking for something that was comfy studio wear, with a little bit of an edgy girl-grunge look that I’ve been feeling lately. And we both love a good raglan- so naturally the Bethioua and the Lane Raglan were perfect options.

[Style Search] Week 7 The Ogden Cami

[Style Search] Week 7 The Ogden Cami

Hi All!

Back to the Style Search! And this week I decided that after some skirts, and a dress, it was about time that I added some classic tops to my wardrobe.

Looking through my wardrobe I realized that I have absolutely no spaghetti strap tank tops- I have some sleeveless tops, but no tank tops- not one- isn’t that crazy? I guess they had all worn out, and in my complete avoidance of shopping I’d never replaced them. But now I’m happy to say that I’ve replaced them without shopping (except in my stash!)

[Style Search]: Week 6 Lingerie Wardrobe

[Style Search]: Week 6 Lingerie Wardrobe

Hi All!

Did you really think I’d make it too much longer without talking about lingerie?

It’s really a huge part of my wardrobe, and I have to say that after going through my style search, I realize that I haven’t focused my bra making towards a perfect ‘bra wardrobe’. Looking back, my bra making motivations have been much more focused on trying new techniques, fabrics or styles rather than picking specific beautiful things that fit with my wardrobe or lifestyle.

[Style Search]: Week 4 Styling the Mabel

[Style Search]: Week 4 Styling the Mabel

Hi All!

So after a lot more pacing in my room, trying on what felt like everything I owned, and a little more laying on my floor staring at my ceiling, I managed to make 10 outfits that I love!!

I have to say that once you get into it, and you get a little more familiar with all of your clothes, it gets easier 🙂

In case you’re just reading this week all my outfits are being styled with my Mabel skirts from Colette
