Today we’re going to add inside pockets onto a blazer.  I love the blazer, but the pockets that came with it are essentially non-functional.  The opening is a vertical slit and they are only a few inches deep.  I’m pretty sure I would only trust them to hold my chapstick, if that.  So, we will be adding a pair of patch pockets to the inside of the blazer to make it that much more useful.

Playing with my little love <3

Hello! It’s been a hot summer this year, and I have been living in dresses (which I have to admit is one of my favorite parts of summer!)  I’ve been thinking about adding a new dress to my summer wardrobe and finally got some time to make it happen.  So today we will be making a nice, comfortable striped summer dress perfect for hot and lazy August evenings (my favorite weather, in fact!).  This dress will have a v-neckline in the front and back, an elastic waistband, and very useful front pockets.  We will first make our pattern using an old dress as a guide, and then our striped dress.  Read on for my Striped Summer Dress Tutorial!

DIY – The Inseam Pockets Tutorial V2

I had previously made an inseam pockets tutorial which uses interfacing to help create sturdy pockets on clothing made with a very light fabric.  However, I’ve realized that most of the other times I’ve made inseam pockets, I do it a bit differently and don’t use as much interfacing.  Hence, today’s post titled Inseam Pockets Tutorial Version 2.
