My finished skirt with my Rainbow Pinup Girls border design, which I will be wearing today to celebrate International Women's Day. This design (border and small repeat) is now available as fabric, wallpaper, and gift wrap from my Spoonflower shop (link in bio)! I consider myself a not-very-good seamstress, but I am super pleased with how this skirt came out! Thank you to @pinupgirlclothing for the inspiration, as well as for the yellow peasant top, earrings, and shoes I am wearing! #pinupgirls #ootd #illustration #design #surfacedesign #fabricdesign #spoonflower #sewing #sewingproject #simplicitypattern #simplicity0466 #pinupgirlclothing #diversity #art #artoninstagram

I know summer is long over, but I finally made something out of my Pineapple Whips fabric design: an off-shoulder, dirndl-inspired dress from the "Patterns by Gertie" line (Butterick B6322). I deviated from the sewing pattern a little bit, and added an elastic neckline and armholes instead of using seam binding, as well as added pockets because they make my life so much easier. Fully lined, all edges serged and finished, and the zipper only a *little* wonky–it's probably the cleanest garment I have ever constructed so far. #sewing #fashion #diy #sewingproject #surfacedesign #dolewhip #pineapplewhip #textiledesign #spoonflower #illustration #butterick #butterickb6322 #butterick6322 #b6322 #patternsbygertie #ootd

Imogen as Masha for Halloween. I made this costume, and although it is very simple, it is notable in my sewing repertoire, in that it is officially the first garment that I have ever sewn in a set of buttonholes and buttons. I am not super happy with how the length looks, but I purposefully made it shorter so she doesn't trip over herself while trick-or-treating. #sewing #sewingproject #diy #mashaandthebear #halloween

I scraped off my paint palette to start a new painting, and it inspired me to make this surface pattern design, and gave me a vision for my next sewing project (Simplicity 8051). This design should be available soon as fabric, wallpaper, and gift wrap in my Spoonflower shop. #design #surfacedesign #pattern #painting #painter #oilpainting #art #artist #artoninstagram #fashion #sewing #spoonflower #wip #designidea #paintpalette

We are out to dinner with our good friends, The Selgas, to celebrate my birthday at The Olde Ship, and appropriately enough, I wore my London skirt, which I made from my London Ink border print available in my Spoonflower shop!

I made Imogen a matching skirt from the left over Star Wars fabric I had from when I made my own skirt, and we wore them to her friend's 1st birthday party today. I think this is our first official mother-daughter-matcha-matchy outfits. #sewing #starwars #fashion #ootd #matchymatchy #imogen

Sewed up a quick dress this afternoon while the baby napped, made out of my "Poolka Dots" design printed on Spoonflower's modern jersey. I think it perfectly expresses my cynical side, especially since a lot of my life right now is comprised of dealing with literal poop. #design #fashion #spoonflower #sewing #emoji #me #ootd
