I've had this top half-done for a while, but finally finished it up today! It's another Wiksten tank with sleeves added to it. Regular tanks don't get a ton of wear, but I've been loving these little capped sleeve versions. This one is made out of the brand new Art Gallery Fabric's Voile! If you've ever felt their fabrics, you can imagine how nice their voile feels. Like butter!
Tank pattern by Wiksten can be found here, Art Gallery Voile can be found here.
Sew Liberated! I picked up this lightweight jersey knit from Joanns a few weeks back in delicious eggplant for it (so typical!). It came together pretty easy, they have some great tips for sewing with knits on their website, here. I sewed it up on my regular machine since I don't have a serger. I don't wear a lot of dresses, so this will be used mainly as a beach cover up!
Paloma dress pattern by Sew Liberated can be found here, jersey knit fabric can be found at Joanns.
Sewing Summit class this Fall, and this pillow was one of them. It's a simple patchwork style pillow, using fabrics from eight different Art Gallery collections: Summerlove, Rhapsodia, Bazaar Style, Bespoken, Sugar (back!), and Pure, Oval, and Nature Elements. It finishes at 15" square!
You can find all but one of these fabrics here.
Drawstring bag tutorial can be found here, pattern can be found here, twill tape can be found here.
