An Easy Update: From White to Blue

Did you ever have something you liked but maybe didn’t wear much, or something just wasn’t exactly right about it…yet you didn’t want to throw away? That’s where some good ol’ RIT dye comes in handy. I didn’t make this one, but I’ve had this easy, breezy summer dress with a little keyhole and knot […]

Dressed for the Holiday

Raise your hand if you’re ready for Spring!! Seriously, I am definitely feeling the Spring fever…especially after such a chilly Easter day. It seems this winter has been relentless, and I think we can all agree it’s about time we bid the old man adieu for a while. Bring on the flowers! This Easter, I […]

When Projects Blossom

When you have camera related issues I suppose that sets you back a little with blog posting. That, and you know, life. While I intended to post these on Valentine’s day, my camera’s SD card had other plans. Plans to stop working. I was afraid I was going to lose all these pictures of this […]

Nuts for Dyeing

I’m not going to lie, I have realllllly enjoyed this beautifully warm “Fall” we’ve been having. Only this week has it actually begun to feel like a more typical Fall with some colder temps. Don’t get me wrong, I adore Fall…but I am also quite the freeze baby–so the warmer it is for longer, I’m […]

Old Movie Inspired

Ask my husband, and he’ll tell you that almost every time we watch an old movie on TCM, I’m running over to the TV with my phone so I can get a picture of a costume that I find inspiring. I was totally inspired for this next one…by Ann Miller in Two Tickets to Broadway. […]

Marbled Shibori

On to the next one… Okay, so my most current make: This marbled shibori jacket…is probably my newest favorite. I am totally in love with this one. I won’t lie to you…the process included a couple tribulations along the way, or at least what I thought might be tribulations that actually turned out to be […]

DIY Duvet: Shibori Style

On this unusually warm February day, I bring you some more shibori. Who woulda thunk? ;) Honestly, I can’t get enough of shibori dyeing. I think it may be one of my favorite things to make because (and I know I’ve said it before) every piece is totally unique. When you tie something up into […]

Ice Cold Blue

I did it again. I made another ice-dyed coat. I had been dreaming up this one for quite some time, but only just executed the project. And like a lot of projects in life…it didn’t come out the way I thought it would. But, you know what they say: good things happen by accident. For […]

Design on the Surface

You know, faux fur is actually pretty warm. I realized this when we were taking these pictures in 20 +/- degrees. And then I remembered that the reason I hadn’t worn this coat more was because I had it in my head thatΒ it wasn’t that warm. Mmm, yeah…it’s pretty warm. Like the last post, I […]

The “Carrie” Coat

I have a confession to make. I am a bit obsessed with ALL of the coats Sarah Jessica Parker wears as Carrie Bradshaw in Sex and the City. I’d say it was how I related to Carrie the most…she obviously had a love of coats and jackets, which has also been the truth for me […]
