sketches of my sleeveless dress done using my personal croquis

Sleeveless dress designed from Sure-Fit Designs Dress Kit

I’ve never been a dress person, but making this dress has changed that a little bit. Ever since I got my Sure-Fit Designs kits (Dress, Shirt, and Pants) my head has been spinning with all of the opportunities to design clothes just for me. Not needing to rely on what’s available off the rack is an exciting prospect for sure! After receiving the kits in the mail, I had trouble deciding where to begin because I wanted to make all the things all at once. But my first priority was to make something to wear to an outdoor evening wedding…

Handmade case for my growing essential oils collection

from Instagram: I’m happy this case is finally complete! It was my first time sewing with piping, and I got some unexpected twists in it, but I like the structure it contributes to the case. This project also taught me how to do a hinged top with the wrap-around zipper, something that looked so daunting but @sewsweetness has great directions. Now to fill it with my #essentialoils 😍 http://ift.tt/2rnScgs Pattern used Crimson and Clover Train Cases by Sew Sweetness (the little individual bins were self-drafted, sized for a grouping of 4 oil bottles)  

Zippered battery pouch: like a fanny pack, but sleeker

from Instagram: I had fun making this custom project for my neighbor. He loves location-based gaming and needed a slim, belted pouch to hold his @anker_official portable charger. Like a fanny pack, but not so fanny pack-like 😛 My new machine sewed the ballistic nylon fabric like a dream ❤️ http://ift.tt/2qALODk
