In the thick of it

The pattern on this fabric always reminds me of walking through the forest after a snowstorm. The stark contrast of the dark trees as ink blots against the white earth is somehow calming and jarring at the same time. Simple yet complex.

Soft vintage canvas fabric lined with vintage striped canvas. Exposed brass zipper. Use it full length for transporting brushes, curling irons and hairspray or as a laundry bag for undies while traveling. OR use it folded over to hold your money and phone on a night out. $28.

Put the izzy in busy

Jeesh life’s been nonstop this summer/spring/ALL THE TIME. Luckily much of that recent busyness has been filled with camping trips, city adventures, thrift store bouts, long beach days, and many mai tais. Unfortunately, it’s also been filled with intense work obligations and not enough sewing time. Sigh.

Somehow, I did manage to get one item done (and about six dresses half way done).

Introducing….the Koala Shirt!

Koala close up

The front is a vintage (never used) tea towel, 100% linen from Ireland. The back is an organic off-white cotton with a vintage blue zipper.

Waist: 30″
Hips: 42″
From Neck to Waist: 15″

I think this shirt would look great with a pencil skirt or fitted shorts. Out of all the stuff I’ve made, this one seems to me the most like something you’d find in an Anthropologie catalogue.

However, unlike Anthropologie, this item is truly one-of-a-kind. Enjoy!
