There are quite a few sewing makes that have not been properly photographed… until now!
So here goes.
Yesterday, we were out in Midtown Atlanta and brought along the camera to take some pictures of an outfit I made last year and a couple purses. This is definitely the millennial hipster part of town – very walkable, with high rise apartments and condos going up everywhere.
Lots of restaurants, bars, and cute little shops.
It is HOT here right now, and luckily we left right before it started to rain.
Let’s get to the outfit!
I love taking one fabric line and creating mix and match separates out of it – versus just one dress. While I do love dresses, I like having the option to wear a top with a pair of jeans or a skirt with a tank top.
This is Alison Glass Sun Print Ink by Andover Fabrics in Electric Berry. It’s a quilting cotton, but I’ve found that the Andover substrate is suitable for garment making. Harts Fabric still carries the print, which can be hard to find.
Top is Grainline Studio Scout Tee pattern – one of my favorites and a great sewing pattern for beginner sewists. No buttons or zippers needed, although you do have to carefully remove the shirt at the end of the day.
Skirt is gathered and has an elastic on the back waistband – Noodlehead has a great tutorial on making these! I didn’t follow hers exactly, but used the same concept.
And the purses! Oh the purses…
One of the bags is the Swoon Harriet Expandable Tote in Cotton + Steel Canvas in Netorious (beautiful silvery print) and Jennifer Sampou’s Shimmer 2 line for Robert Kaufman.
Then there’s the Quarter Note Clutch by Emmaline Bags in MiKri World Glitter Mirror Canvas Vinyl – one of my favorite fabrics to work with of all time. (Sew Sweetness has also started selling glitter vinyl in slightly wider 18″ x 54″ rolls!)
Gorgeous hardware is also from Emmaline Bags – this site has THE BEST purse hardware!
Clutch lining (not visible) is another Alison Glass print called Ex Libris – another hard to find print.

Stay cool everybody.
