Handmade Summer

I’m even more excited about making my own clothing since I went vegan. Yes, phasing out wool has been a bit of a challenge, but challenges are FUN! Here’s some yarn and fabric I have plans for this summer:


Shibui Linen for a Xia blouse (Ravelry link). Treated myself at Gather Here after my book deal!

Cute vintage-y cotton lawn from Mood Fabrics, destined to become a Violet blouse. (It’s almost finished!)


Vintage rayon from this Etsy shop and Italian shirting from Mood Fabrics. Both for dresses, one of which will have some pretty nifty bias action.


I had a plan for this Bamboo laceweight from Webs, but oftentimes when you order online what comes in the mail isn’t quite what you expected. I think I’ll make one of these instead. (Puffed sleeves! I can’t resist!)

Ailbhe gave me these adorable buttons a few years ago. They belong on a vintage jumper, just not sure yet which pattern.

I also finished a Miette cardigan a few weeks ago, which I’ll blog about soon. Still need to take some photos!

Hi! I'm Camille. I only write stories that could never ever happen in real life, though I do believe in real-life magic. If we were in the same room I'd fix you a cup of tea, but for now we'll have to settle for a virtual connection. I'm really glad you're here.
