What I’m Wearing Wednesday – the sally tunic

Happy Wednesday! I’m excited to share with you my tunic journey!!! I started out with a simple tank pattern and a bestie (Julie) with mad fitting skills! This tank HERE was made back in October of 2016. It was my first “sloper” which is a pattern that is fit exactly to my body. Around that time I got really into LulaRoe leggings. They are so soft and buttery…and I want to wear them all the time!! But, I have this thing about covering up my bottom! So, the birth of the sally tunic. I used a dress pattern from the Lotta Jansdotter book Everyday Style to add an A-line-ish skirt to...

What I’m Wearing Wednesday – let’s make a skirt!

So you know me by now, right? I love to make skirts! I usually whip a bunch out for Spring Quilt Market or for Fall Quilt Market. Check out these posts here and here to see past skirts I’ve made. This past fall I got some awesome wonderful fabric from Amanda Herring from her Curiosities fabric and made a cutie skirt. Love these ostriches… A couple of things here: a. Snow on the bench…Houston’s second Ice-mageddon this week! b. The pattern I used was for this skirt was from Deborah Moebes’ Stitch by Stitch. Her A-line skirt.  It’s a super great and fast pattern! (Affiliate link to Amazon! It doesn’t...

Finish it Friday – FAL 2018 Quarter One

Ohhh I’m excited to get back to posting on Fridays here on Sally’s Angelworks. I’m excited to list out what I want to finish this year. And I’m super excited to actually finish projects this year!! So for the first quarter, I’d love to finish some pretty big hefty projects that I’ve been working on for a while now! Please forgive the fact that I’m still posting some of the same projects that I posted last year. It’s time to stop the distractions and get some awesome finishes done! The first big project I have to finish in the next 6 weeks is our homeschool’s support group’s yearbook from last...

What I’m Wearing Wednesday – the Contrast Panel Tunic

Happy Wednesday!!! For my first handmade outfit share this year, I’ve picked my Contrast Panel Deer Tunic. The pattern I used for this is Alison Glass/Karen LePage’s Woven Essentials Pattern. I created this tunic with fun fabric called Moonshine (designed by Tula Pink) and Art Gallery Denim. I used contrasting half yards of Alison Glass olive and charcoal Chroma fabric for the bodice. One thing I learned making this pattern is that a gathered skirt doesn’t feel good on me. I had it gathered and then wore it a few weeks. I felt frumpy and unkempt. So, I stretched out the front of the skirt and created gathers (mini pleats) in...

What I’m Wearing Wednesday

Happy Wednesday! This year, I’d love to feature a little bit more of my garment sewing for several reasons. First, to give myself accountability to create more clothing for me. As I sew for myself, I get closer to finding my own personal style and what feels good on. Second, I’d love to have you join me on my journey to create a healthier me. No tricks, no special products per se, no diets or gimmicks. Just eating healthily, moving more, and sleeping well. I’ll post here every Wednesday with a newly made outfit for the next three months and share with you how I’m doing with my health journey....

Urbanologie BOM Progress

Here’s a very fun way to create an intricate quilt: Join a BOM and don’t get behind! This year I joined Julie in her BOM (Block of the Month) and Zakka POM (Project of the Month). The BOM is Sew Kind of Wonderful’s Urbanologie Pattern (see the link for the different layouts.) I’m doing Layout #2. (Thanks, Julie, for the pic! The Sew Kind of Wonderful Gals at Quilt Market last fall ❤️) Julie is sending us fabrics that are very similar to the sample quilt. I’m excited to say that I’ve finished the first 5 months. Here are my blocks so far: Month 1 – BirdsBirds! So cute! I...

Sewing Machine Apron Love

I’m thrilled with this little project! My darling friend Tita wanted to make a sewing machine apron for her machine. I desperately wanted pockets for when I sew at my machine. So I got Tita to come over and sew with me, and I grabbed a pattern that I had stashed (and Tita bought one, too!!!) and we sewed!! We made Erin Schlosser’s Sewing Machine Apron from Schlosser Designs.  I used fabric from the Intrepid Thread – Brenda Watson’s Colette (love this fabric!) I love these little pockets. I use them constantly, which means yes, I use my seam ripper a LOT! …and this cutie thread catcher. Very well used!!! The underside...
