GInger Jeans Sewing Workshop at Sew Stitch Sew Shop // Closet Core Patterns

Hey guys! I totally hoped to have my weekly wrap-up out yesterday but I was kept pretty busy with our Ginger workshop at the Stitch Sew Shop in Alexandria, Virginia, AKA the cutest town in America. We had an awesome weekend and three of us got to make summer neon jeans that you can see from space.

Last week was filled with beautiful me-mades; here are my favourites.


Sallie’s Sophie swimsuit is SMOKING. And I was filled with joy when I saw this lovely floral one piece from Le Papillon.

This dress made from a  vintage pattern on the Tessuti blog is magnifique.

I loved Debbie’s Asaka kimono – this pattern is obviously a favourite of mine.

Overall dress madness! Cute versions from Jasika Nicole, Gray All Day and House of Pinheiro.

Totally charmed by this summer sundress from Victoria at By Hand London.

A beautifully modern orange statement dress from Catherine Daze.

I’ve been wanting to make a Carolyn Pajamas nightshirt for a while; Capitol Chic beat me to it and it is fabulous!

I LOVE reading people’s me-made wedding dress posts; this one from This Blog is Not for You is no exception.

Love these perfect Morgan Jeans from SewSinCity.

This vintage rose print dress from Gussets & Godets is just lovely.

A very cute outfit on Megan Nielsen.


Enjoy this glimpse inside the J. Mendel atelier during the preparation for their first couture collection.
