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:

P1090396

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

P1090400
Cute vintage-y cotton lawn from Mood Fabrics, destined to become a Violet blouse. (It’s almost finished!)


P1090501

P1090497
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.

P1090360

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!)

P1090496
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.
