Latest pattern: #fultonsweaterblazer

All of my patterns are special to me, but I get a special thrill every time someone makes a #hamptonjeanjacket. The victory you feel when you wear a jean jacket you MADE is like none other. This mint green Cone Mills Hampton Jean Jacket made by @mountaincraftstyle1 is the perfect example. 👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼

Thanks for the love on my Joy Jacket yesterday. ♥️ Make sure you go check out @megmadesewing to see what she’s sharing today!!
.
Can I just preserve this spot and this scenery and return every day for a few minutes?! We’ve had so much rain in Southern California that we are experiencing a “super bloom” in the deserts. All of this will be brown and bare in a short time, so it’s worth the drive if you’re in SoCal.

So what IS tencel twill? Head to my stories to find out! I’m diving into what it is, how it sews, how it presses, and more!

Head to the blog NOW! It’s my turn to share what I made for the @stylemakerfabrics Spring Style Tour. All I can say is 👏🏼tencel👏🏼twill!

P.S. Could the Southern California desert in 🌸🌵FULL BLOOM 🌴🌺 have been any more perfect for this?! More photos than I have ever put in one blog post are up so you can see lots more of this jacket. 😍

I’ll be in stories today talking about tencel twill, so watch out for that!

Jill made this #hamptonjeanjacket TWO YEARS ago!!! Look how beautiful it’s worn in. (And she’s wearing a #panamateedress underneath!) @independentclothinginitiative is the cutest and is super creative, go follow her if you don’t already!
🌵
Did you all have a good green week for #sewhappycolor?! It was quiet here (as in I didn’t post anything of my own), but lots of stuff going on in real life. My husband is studying for a big exam (he’s a second year resident), we homeschool, the baby is everywhere and into everything, we’ve had baseball games, classes, and so much more! It just wasn’t the week for me to sew or work and that’s okay. My newest pattern has been back from the grader for over two weeks and I haven’t gotten the chance to touch it yet, but next week I will! So excited to share it with you.
🌵
Before that, it’s almost my turn to go up for the @stylemakerfabrics blog tour, so watch for that on Monday! The thing I made for it is THE most involved thing I have EVER made, and I’m excited to show it off. 🎉 happy weekend!!

Thanks for all of the love on my yellow Chi-Town Chinos this week! The only other yellow item in my wardrobe is my mustard #fultonsweaterblazer. Admittedly this isn’t the best color next to my face, but this hand-dyed indigo neckerchief is a great way to complement and make this color work! 🍋
It’s been so fun co-sponsoring  #sewhappycolor this week—thanks for having me, @katiekortmanart!

White denim + @ritdye + #chitownchinos pattern = #sewhappycolor
🌈
Here’s my final wide-leg, high-rise crop pant hack—LOTS more photos on the blog!
🌈
I know you loved my wearable muslin of this hack and I’m thrilled so many of you are already working on your own versions! So excited to finally have these happy yellow pants in my wardrobe after 4 months of planning them!
🌈
(Pardon the wrinkles—a fair amount of life had already been lived in the day I finally captured my husband to take these photos.😂)
🌈
Make sure to follow along with #sewhappycolor @katiekortmanart. And go look at all of the photos and final adjustments in my blog post!

Are you ready for these YELLOW wide leg #chitownchinos?! Can’t wait to share all of the photos with you tomorrow.
🍋
So excited about everyone tagging me and @sarkirsten with @katiekortmanart for #sewhappycolor this week! (If you’re not following along, you can tag us to win patterns from our shops.) Loving all of the orange and yellow coming through my notifications—yellow is my favorite color (reflected in my branding no doubt), and it’s making me SEW HAPPY!
💛
P.S. this colorful mural photo is taking me back hard to my Chicago days and all of those times I had to take outfit photos under the L (train tracks) in front of the murals during rush hour with a remote. 😂😂😂 You do what you gotta do.

PINK as a NEUTRAL??
+
@katiekortmanart is in her stories talking about how PINK can be a neutral. That got me thinking about how—even though you’ll see me wearing these pink leather @avarcasusa at least half the week...they go with everything as if they were a neutral! This pink is actually one of favorite colors to go with all of the green+blue in my closet. Are you into pink? Do you use it as a neutral or a statement (or both)?
+
This is a normal uniform for my #momlife—comfortable knit dress, woven shirt tied up, comfortable shoes. 👍🏼 (This is a @colettepatterns #wrendress—one of my most worn patterns since I’ve worn it straight through pregnancy and nursing the last two babes.)

March newsletter is going out soon, so don’t forget to sign up if you want a pattern coupon (this pic might be a hint). There’s also some pretty good hints at my next pattern in the newsletter AND the sizes it will be in.
▫️
Did you see @teridodds1’s velvet-ribbon-finished side seams on her #chitownchinos? She was inspired by some Anthropologie trousers and even recreated the original modeled photo on her grid, so pop over there to see that. ▫️
I WANT TO KNOW: Have you made pants for yourself?! If not, why? Tell me in the comments below. ⬇️
