The Kitschy Coo Comino Cap is one of my favourite patterns. In my first Me-Made May wrap-up, I realised that I’d worn variations on this pattern four times in just 9 outfits! To celebrate, I thought I should sew up a really classic, as-is version of the pattern to show you all why I like … More A (Not Quite) Classic Comino Cap
The Comino Cap was my favourite pattern of the summer, so it’s no surprise that I’ve made a more autumnal version! I got this lovely viscose jersey at a different branch of my local chain store yesterday. It was on for “Buy 1 for $15, get two free!” so i snapped up 2m each of … More Autumn Comino Cap
The Kitschy Coo Comino Cap dress feels like an instant classic. Lady Skater never quite worked for my figure, but somehow this one makes me feel chic and comfy at the same time! The green version was a muslin trial… it’s just too bad that when I first got the fabric I thought it was *too* … More Comino Cap Dress
I’ve been really into boxy and flowing tops this year… but as we head back into the school year, I felt like maybe I should make a few more polished items. I’ve been obsessing about sewing neckline keyholes lately, so I combined the two goals into one top! The pattern is one of my all-time … More Comino Blouse
I think the theme of this dress is “Why bother planning?” I’ve had this rayon knit in my stash for a year, and for that whole time I knew I wanted to make it into a ruffled Comino Cap dress. I did that thing, though, where you like a fabric and therefore hoard it instead … More Winter Comino Dress
I’ve been making myself a fun new dress for my birthday for the past few years, and I love the tradition. The last few have been maxis, so this year I made short dress instead! Behold the glory of its twirliness!!! It is three patterns mashed up: Cashmerette Dartmouth for the bodice, Comino Cap for … More Birthday Dress, 2019 Edition!
After wearing pants all of the first week, this week my Me-Made May theme was dresses! And somehow, despite a wardrobe FULL of dresses (easily enough for a whole month) I made three new ones! May 8th: A new dress! This is hack of my TNT Comino Cap dress, inspired by a friend’s dress on … More Me-Made May 2019, Week 2: Dresses!
Riddle me this: Which two TNT’s did I use to make this dress? It’s two of the five patterns I have featured in my TNT pattern page! If you guessed Cashmerette Concord and Kitschy Koo Comino Cap, you are correct! In all my digging for Pinterest inspiration for Kibbe Gamine style, I started falling in … More 70’s Flair
First, this pattern is a blouse… and second, it is primarily aimed at wovens! But they list knits as an option in the instructions, so of course you know that is what I used! This is the new Skinny Bitch Curvy Chick Flora, and I made three in the week since it was released! I’ve … More SBCC Flora Dress
First off, let me admit that I completely gave up on my “Something old, something new” pledge by the end of the month. It got really hot, and I just wanted to wear clothes that I love! May 22: Suki Robe from Tribute Month 2017 and a Santa Fe tank from who-knows-when. I love this … More Me-Made May 2018: Week 4, and reflections!
