Here's the thing. Last weekend, for the first time in two years and four months, I screen printed. It's something I've been unable to do since I moved to NZ (it was a small suitcase) and it finally happened. It's kiiind of a big deal. To me. The thing is, it was yarn bags for @kat.knits - my Etsy shop - and the last thing I want to do is come off all sales-y to you guys, that is so not the point. So the conundrum: do I blog about the screen printing? Do you, fellow sewists (because lets be serious I mostly post about sewing) - want to know about screen printing? .

The second piece of my lil' outfit is this self drafted tencel jacket with a leafy viscose underlining. I've been wearing it constantly, except for last week when my hair was blue and the whole thing clashed horribly. Now it's pink and it matches again! (I explained this to a coworker yesterday. I think I scared him.)
The link in my bio will take you to my blog post, and there's a discount code for this fabric from @drapersfabrics in there!

The blog this morning is a trip down the rabbit hole- a self drafted stripe matched underlined princess seamed chevron silk sundress, and a tencel and viscose leafy blazer complete with back vent and contrasting undercollar. I had so much fun with this project! Plus- it was a collaboration with @drapersfabrics and they've offered you guys a discount code for their new online shop, if you're interested πŸ’• link's in the bio.

Also @hillbilly_barnyard is the best photo buddy in New Zealand ❀️

What's this rumpus? This week on the blog I've created a how-to reference post for drafting your own perfectly fitting body block, and shared some pictures of my own! It may not make for the prettiest Instagram post, but this is definitely where the real magic happens.

If you see me this summer, i'm most likely going to be wearing a pair of Ginger Jeans and a flowy tank, and I have so many versions of each to choose from! That's what I'd call a #bpsewvember 'success' even though keeping up with the prompts has been less so... πŸ™„...at least I tried! .
.
Fabric for both tank and jeans is from @drapersfabrics πŸ’• - self drafted tank and @closetcase.patterns #gingerjeans number 6. .

I can't decide if it's socially acceptable to wear the sheer spotty shirt with just the bustier underneath or if it's too risquΓ© for public consumption. I'm feelin' mighty cute though!

New bra on the blog! Although it fits, I have (for the time being) failed in my attempts to engineer straplessness. It's so pretty though, I keep trying to steal peeks down my shirt... πŸ˜‚

Silk from @wearethefabricstore and the rest of the bits are from @ellejoans and dyed with acid dyes ❀️️

Today's #bpsewvember prompt is Stash Pride, and I am hella here for that. Although I mostly buy with a finished object in mind, sometimes I end up with fabric that takes its time deciding what it wants to be. Such is the case with these lovelies 😁. See also: my immediate-future upcoming projects list!
.
.
Side note: these fabrics don't know what they want to be yet. If anyone has any ideas I'd love to hear them! 1.8m of the spotty silk, 2.5m of the paper cranes, and 1m of the reversible building blocks. .

Today's prompt for #bpsewvember is 'mix it up' so I've remixed my little video! 
I'm working on the literal foundation for my wedding dress- the dress form! This little time lapse is an excerpt from my latest YouTube video. Follow the link in my bio for the full version with the cute theme music and the details! (Who are we kidding, you're totally here for the theme music 😁)

Today's #bpsewvember prompt is 'tricky'. My current project finds itself in want of quite a few skills I haven't used in a long time, especially not all together. It's amazing how much my hands remember though! Not as tricky as I thought.
.
.

Also, let's just take a moment to bask in the perfect glory of hand sewing on your patio on a beautiful afternoon, makin' me feel like a real life adult who totally didn't have a bag of microwave popcorn for dinner last Wednesday 😎
