Seafoam Green Linen Jacket

I know you all think all Lori can make is jackets, right?  Two of my three posts have been jackets for the Mood Sewing Network. Well, I am going to up the odds to three out of four.  I do have a thing for jackets, especially in the spring, when a light jacket is just what you need for the cool, crisp air.  This time I wanted a very versatile jacket, one you could wear with so many outfits.  I also wanted to use a good color for spring, something to freshen up my closet and existing garments, so I […]

Mustard-Yellow Poplin Jacket

Lately, I have been seeing a certain color combination of navy and mustard in fashion and I have been wanting to introduce it into my wardrobe.  I found this Donna Karan mustard poplin add this stripe jersey from Mood Fabrics and now I have the perfect combination for new spring garments. At first, I was thinking a skirt and top, like this picture from my pins, but I really don’t wear skirts that much and  I wanted garments that I will wear quite often.  A jacket for spring is always a welcome addition to the wardrobe and I selected BWOF  6/2006 #104 […]

A Lace Dress for Paige

At Mood Sewing Network, March is lace sewing month for the bloggers.  I was discussing with my oldest daughter, Paige, what I might make for this challenge.  After a few ideas, she suggested a dress for her.  I thought it was a great suggestion and I told her to start looking at patterns and inspiration photos. Next step was the lace selection and Paige wanted a mint color lace (popular for spring).   She looked at the  incredible laces on Mood Fabric’s online shop and we knew Mood had an even a wider selection at their at their store in NYC and LA.

Striped Blazer

I have been looking at striped blazers for about a month now–just search “stripe knit blazer” on Pinterest and it yields many results.  From the traditional navy-white/cream to red/navy and green/navy color combination, to varying lengths to the treatment of the label/front finishes, the choices are limitless for this stylish blazer. I purchased Navy Stripes Nautical Double-faced Cotton-blend Jersey with the one thought, “I love this fabric!”  After my order came from Mood Fabrics, I noticed my navy ponte (from my first Mood Sewing Network post) matched perfectly.  That is when we fashion sewers just start planning and picturing ideas.  I looked at all the […]

Peplum Top and Trousers

You know when you see an outfit and think I HAVE to recreate this?  Well, that was my thought when I pinned this outfit.  After, Mood Fabrics contacted me to be part of the Mood Sewing Network, I knew this was the outfit I wanted to make for my debut outfit.   I have had red skinny jeans in my wardrobe for a year now but knew a wide leg trouser style would be a perfect addition.  I perfected the fit on Burda  7447 pants and widened the legs  from the knee down for more of a wide leg  look. This Burda pattern […]
