When Sewaholic released the Oakridge Blouse and the Granville Shirt in rapid succession back in 2015, I immediately gravitated toward the Granville. I’ve made it 5 times now (see here, here, here, here, and here) and have plans for at least 2 more. The Oakridge also seemed interesting, but it sat on the back burner. Finally, almost 2 years later I’ve gotten around to making it.
Last week I posted my fall sewing plans, but before I dive into starting on those, I want to share a final summer make. This is the Sewaholic Saltspring dress, made from a Craftsy kit.
The back-to-school propoganda has started popping up everywhere. Brandon actually warned me not to go to Target unless I wanted to be surrounded by moody teenagers anxious about going back to school. Rather than thinking about school myself, I’ve made up a list of Fall 2017 sewing plans. They fall into two categories: special occasion dresses and mix-and-match basic separates.
I decided to finally use up the last of this gorgeous Robert Kauffman cotton from my stash. Originally, I bought it as part of a Craftsy kit to make a Mother’s Day shirt for my mom. I used the rest to make the exact same shirt for myself. Twinning!
