Rayon Challis Amalifi Dress with no waist seam

The Amalfi Dress from Hey June Patterns doesn’t seem to get sewn as often as some of the other Hey June Patterns. People think the silhouette isn’t for them, so hopefully after seeing this version of the Amalfi, you’ll give it another look.

Fragola Top & Dress Pattern Review

The next pattern in the Project Smooth Sorbet collection we sewed is the Fragola Top & Dress pattern.

Amherst Shirt Pattern Review

We love the new Amherst Shirt from Hey June patterns.  If we could sum up the new Amherst Shirt pattern in 3 words, those 3 would be, “Another amazing pattern!”   The Amherst Shirt is a button down cargo style shirt with integrated sleeve cuffs.  (More on that later…)  It is intended to be sewn inContinue reading “Amherst Shirt Pattern Review”

Grunge Floral Phoenix Blouse

To go with her new rayon challis maxi circle skirt, Aria needed a new blouse. Enter the grunge floral Phoenix Blouse.

No regrets andContinue reading “Grunge Floral Phoenix Blouse”

The Summer of the Phoenix Blouse {part 2}

A while back, I promised this was going to be the summer of the Phoenix Blouse.  So it’s about time for another post about the Phoenix Blouse, don’t you think?  Don’t worry, I’ll make up for it with 2 posts about it this week, okay? When Aria saw the Phoenix Blouse I sewed for myself,Continue reading “The Summer of the Phoenix Blouse {part 2}”

Double Circle Maxi Skirt for Summer

As I mentioned yesterday, I ordered another summer fabric from the Summer CLUB fabric line at Raspberry Creek Fabrics.  It’s called bubble stripe and I got the version on rayon challis.  (It also comes on jersey knit or french terry.)  This rayon challis is very easy to work with and doesn’t shift and move whileContinue reading “Double Circle Maxi Skirt for Summer”
