Sleeveless Blazer Thursday, June 9 2016

Creation: Sleeveless Blazer

Fabrics Used: Grey Twill & Pink Batiste

The Visionary: Beth, 110 Creations

Our Thoughts: Beth at 110 Creations made a lovely sleeveless Blazer to compliment her bump using Grey Twill and Pink Batiste

 

 We've all done it. Made a pattern that we loved, plotted 50 more versions, then instantly moved on to "ooooo shiny!" and neglected the tried and true. I made my first Victoria Blazer almost exactly two years ago...eep! I LOVE that blazer, it's one of my favorite things I've ever made. For all that time, I've been wanting to make a second (and third...) and I finally did!

Creation: Senior Thesis Project

Fabrics Used: A variety of fabrics HERE

The Visionary: Callie Jensen, Calliejensen.com

Our Thoughts:  Callie from CallieJensen.com used Organic Cotton Plus sustainable fabrics as part of her thesis entitled "Made in ________". We think she did a fantastic job and wish her a wonderful career.

 

After World War One, there was a push for sustainable clothing development, not because it was “in fashion,” but because resources were scarce. The repair and reuse of items became a necessity, and fabrics were rationed just as were many other supplies. At the time, grains, flour, and plant growing supplements were delivered in cotton-linen bags that were durable and tightly woven as to transport the various kinds of feed. For women like my great-great-grandmother, who lived on farms, this created an incredible resource. The bags often came in friendly floral patterns which made them desirable and easy to repurpose into clothing. By the end of World War II, increases in mass production in the food and fashion industries created a depreciation in quality that persists today.

Creation: Simple Summer Dress

Fabrics UsedInterlock Knit

The Visionary: Suzannah, Create/Enjoy

Our ThoughtsSuzannah at Create/Enjoy had some left over Interlock Knit fabric and made this simple, yet elegant summer dress.

 

It's been off and on super hot and super rainy here! Early June in Oregon, what did we expect?

But, I've been ready for summer dresses again with last weekend in the 80's and this weekend maybe up to 90 degrees. I wanted a really simple, comfy, easy dress for this weather, so I pulled out the leftover fabric from this maxi dress--really nice, medium-heavy weight interlock knit from Organic Cotton Plus, great use for leftover high quality fabric.

It laid really well at the neckline, which is just a folded-over-once hem. This weight is great for a dress! And this dress is so comfy and great for hot days!
