Trellis Sweatshirt

HELLO, I MADE A SWEATSHIRT OUT OF NON-STRETCH UPHOLSTERY FABRIC. This super soft, reversible, double-weight organic cotton was originally purchased to use in my dining room, but it’s been sitting around for ages, and so I decided to wear it instead.

I acknowledge that the trellis pattern is really obviously a home dec thing, but I honestly could not care less [p.s. guys, ‘I could NOT care less.’ Could NOT. I could NOT care less. If you leave out the “NOT” it means you care very much. Just. Okay, there we go. I’m an asshole].

The visor was a gift from my best girl Molly.¬†She has a matching one, and we were supposed to take pictures together by a pool, but we never did, and thus basically wasted the entire summer, and now I’m making sweatshirts for Fall.

Hey look, I used the reverse side on the sleeves.

I felt like the giant pattern needed a little breaking up, so I used this pretty light blue and gold metal zipper, and threw a tassel on there, because it’s also pretty. I KNOW. Tassels are over-used. We’re all still surviving them though.

The slightly cropped dolman sleeve and the boxy shape remind me of the kind of thing Barbie would wear to a ski party in the 1960’s.

I mean, I’m never going skiing, but I wouldn’t mind looking good at a ski party.

Navy Scuba Knit Executive Top

HELLO, I MADE THIS TOP OVER A WEEK AGO, BUT HAVEN’T FELT LIKE TAKING PICTURES OF MYSELF. With clothes on, I mean. I originally purchased this heavy-weight, super structured but also stretchy, scuba fabric back in July, intending to make a bathing suit, but I ran out of time before my summer vacations, and so instead I made a top to wear to corporate meetings.

The exact opposite use.

I have no corporate meetings scheduled.

Still, I like wearing this. Those sleeves were added midway through this project, sewn right on top of a short, fitted cap sleeve, so they’re kind of like wings. Wings made of scuba knit, trimmed in royal blue bias.

I can pin bows and brooches and pink faux fur poms under the little … THING in front.

Is anyone else dying from allergies lately? MY BRAIN.

Eventually, I’d like to stitch up a pair of pink, high-waisted damask flares to wear with it. Wouldn’t that look so great in a conference room?
