Tido was married last September and sent us the photos from her wedding a little while ago. After restructuring the bodice to fit perfectly, we shortened the dress & cut off the train to better suit her outdoor wedding. It was a great transformation to make the dress a perfect match for the ceremony.
Thank you so much for your confidence, it was so great to work with you and seeing you so happy with your dress
All done. From a dress I rarely wore ... To a top I will wear much more 👏

Meet Me at the Alter|ations: Erica 💍
Erica and I actually went to high school together. Shout-out to Roose! That was back when I was enrolled in a science & tech scholarship program and thought I would apply for colleges to be pre-med. 😂 But zero regrets, because:
A) Efficacy is tantamount. It can be difficult to envision pathways to the future without trial and error. Sometimes you don’t know what you will love or commit to until you try.
B) I still use math & engineering. Fashion is as much aesthetic as it is functional. Garments much open and close, form around three-dimensional figures, and allow range of motion and more. So I’ve truly not strayed that far.
All in all, the journey is one to appreciate, especially when it brings you back to good people. 💫

When you buy a dress because it’s on sale but just doesn’t fit right....let’s completely change it. Used nearly all the fabric (minus the sleeves because maybe we will make a different top?) to create this midi length skirt with pockets. THE COOLEST PRINT. 🏞

I put a zipper on my "rain coat"
The jacket is quite fitted and there is absolutely no stretch in the wax cotton, so putting it on is a bit of a pain. To solve the problem, I put a zipper in the side.
Oh man. This week has been a week, you know? I’ve got all this #sewjo but I keep messing things up. I have been trying for a full week to get some new persephone pants made and I KEEP GETTING THINGS WRONG. I even turned on @lovetosew.podcast , listened to some fit-related episodes to keep me going, but sometimes you just gotta move on. So after the fourth needle broke (I’m not kidding) I decided to switch projects and move onto some other unfinished pieces.
I’ve been trying to balance getting samples made for my upcoming line as well my personal makes and this outfit lands in both categories 😊 It’s all self-drafted and so unbelievably cozy. Just a simple knit wrap top and tube skirt with an encased elastic waistband. This is a wearable toile of a couple items that you’ll see this spring with @jillianisabel_atelier.
I still feel a huge weight of all the other tasks piling up in my head, but it does feel nice to get a couple things actually finished!
