I run, I craft, I write, and I make your favorite clothes.

I've never met anything I couldn't sew. Sewing makes me happy. I specialize in heirloom-quality garments and modern but timeless design. I love the challenge of creating garments specific to your needs, whether a tutu for a sensitive little ballerina, an extra tough pair of pants that is soft on the inside for that rough and tumble kid, your every day favorite clothes, or an elaborate formal gown. When it comes to sewing, I make things happen!

When Heather Givans showed me her new line, Paper Obsessed, I knew I had to make a dress from it.  I mean, what else would I do? Heather Givans is one of the most beautiful people I know.  She has the biggest heart, she’s such a generous teacher and friend, and is one of few people who would opt for a green juice with me after yoga class early in the morning.  I would do anything for Heather, but making this dress was completely my pleasure.   I love, love, love how Windham’s quilting cottons feel once they are washed, and they always seem to behave beautifully for my garments.  I couldn’t decide which print to choose – could you?

Any one of the Paper Obsessed prints would make a perfect dress!  So, I asked Heather to choose whatever she wanted, and I’d make it.

She chose this one:

41684-6 Paper

How adorable are those paper airplanes?  From NOTEBOOK PAPER! I love the print she chose (and it just so happened I had a beautiful matching organic solid on hand to coordinate for the lining) so, even though I was still tweaking the design for my Woven Essentials pattern collaboration with our mutual friend Alison Glass, I went ahead and made everyone’s favorite dress – the Bracelet Sleeeved Gathered Dress (we call it the Kelly Dress).

One quick try-on in the late-night dark studio,

PO-victorianBack

and a custom tag from the adorable selvedge…

Then, overnight it flew for the Windham Lookbook Photo Shoot!

I think most of it would go into a bag or quilt or pillows, but my granddaughter inspects my stash often and whenever she sees something she likes, she asks me to make her something to wear. So some of it might end up in a dress for her too. Thanks for the fun, and for your inspiring blog!

I am always up for a challenge and sometimes I surprise myself! I did manage to get my hands on a tiny bit of this amazing fabric at Market last Fall. I used this precious goodness on a gift for my sister, Andrea, that is one amazing teacher. I made the 241 Tote by Noodlehead. Andrea just loved it and the cute matching makeup case to put inside.

    I actually did make an amazing pillow from Heather’s Succulents collection. It was a gorgeous line. powersjlc at gmail dot com. Thanks for the chance.

    I used to make most of my clothes and have gotten away from it. Lately I have wanted to get back to it and I am looking for a skirt pattern to start off with.

    Beautiful dress, i love it! I made some clothings years ago, dresses and skirts mainly, but I’m very much confortable at making quilts!

    I love your dress! I would make a quilt for my son who works at Boeing in Seattle.

    I have never made anything from Heather’s fabrics but I love both lines! I sew clothes for my self (occasionally) and my daughter (more often). I’d love to make a back to school dress but since my daughter is not even 2 that isn’t really needed in this house. I might make a library bag for my middle son, or a quilt. Because when all else fails, I make a quilt. I make a lot of quilts.

    I am starting to make my own clothes and the dress is lovely!! I would probably use it for a pencil pouch or notebook cover.

    I do make clothes and a dress from this line would be amazing! I also see lots of tote bags and zipper pouches.

    I’m planning a wall quilt in the Letters From Home pattern — I can hardly wait to get started. But I love to sew clothing, and might just put a dress at the top of my to-do list!

    What do you think you’d make from Paper Obsessed? — oh I would love to make a tunic — and that is a stretch I tell you! Thinking sleeveless so I don’t have to worry about inserting sleeves!
    Have you already made something from Heather’s fabrics (Paper Obsessed or Succulents)?NO! Never! I would love to!
    Do you make clothing? many many moons ago when I was in highschool [don’t ask how many years!] I would love to tackle a top/tunic though! Love you fabric choice with the airplanes! Love it!

    Wonderful use of the fabric. I long to quilt with it…if I win.

    I have really only made clothes for my son. It was alot of fun, but was more than twenty years ago. I bought material and a pattern to make a dress for myself, but it’s hanging in the bag in the closet. Now I’ve mastered zippers so might be I try to make the dress this fall. Your pattern is great and I would try that too with these lovely fabrics. Thanks for the chance!

    I’ve never used Heather’s fabrics but I’m so excited to change that!

    I would probably make a quilt. I used to make a lot of my own clothes, but not so much lately. Thanks.
