1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / White Pleated Brocade Skirt on: June 08, 2013 09:57:08 AM

I made this skirt after seeing this lovely skirt on Pinterest..

I loved the Brocade but didn't know if I could pull off the longer length so I made mine shorter and more wearable for hot Utah Summers.

The fabric is from Mood (http://www.moodfabrics.com/white-cream-damask-brocade.html) and the pattern I used was Melissa Esplin's skirt tutorial (http://melissaesplin.com/2013/04/tutorial-kate-spade-inspired-skirt/).

More details about the process can be found on my blog here: http://hayleeatkinson.blogspot.com/2013/06/white-brocade-skirt.html
2  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Gray Wool Coat on: April 11, 2013 11:10:54 PM
I realize Im a little behind on the times in making a wool coat just in time for Spring, ha but I live in Utah so really its pretty much Winter all year round anyways.

This coat was created using the Burda Style coat pattern from The Burda Style Handbook, and then just gray wool fabric from Joann's.

This was my first time making a coat so I'm actually kind of amazed it turned out! ha but hey I'll take it.
3  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Sequin Gold Pencil Skirt on: April 02, 2013 09:06:21 AM

I made this skirt using sequin gold fabric from Spandex House, and Butterick B5466. I loove this pattern, it's so simple to use and super versatile. I've used it for lace, sequins, knits, it works with everything!

Just in case anyone cares more details can be found here: hayleeatkinson.blogspot.com/2013/03/gold-sequin-pencil-skirt.html

Have a great day everyone! Smiley
4  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Sequin Bodice Dress on: March 29, 2013 07:53:02 AM

So I can't pull off mini dresses. I'm too tall, so when I saw this first dress from Tobi I was sad that I'd never be able to wear such a gem.

So I decided to take the DIY route and make my own, adding sleeves and about 10 inches to the skirt.

 I drafted the bodice and then I used Newlook 6723 for the skirt because I was not about to draft a skirt pattern because they are annoying and big and I hate doing them. Smiley

Blogged about here http://hayleeatkinson.blogspot.com/2013/03/teach-me-how-to-shimmer.html for those of you who are interested.
5  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Gold Sequin Collar Blouse on: February 13, 2013 10:43:06 PM
After seeing this lovely shirt on Pinterest,

I wanted to make one similar but I didn't want long sleeves and I wanted it to be a button-down front. So this is what I came up with,

The fit isn't great, but I'm hoping the shiny sequins will help make that less noticeable. Smiley haha
6  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Lace Peter Pan Collar Dress. on: December 31, 2012 11:19:09 PM

I recently finished this dress using Burda 7494 and an old Simplicity 4802 pattern I had.

It doesn't quite fit with the freezing cold Utah weather we have at the moment but I still like it. Smiley

Happy New Year everyone!  Smiley

I made this top this weekend using Megan Nielsen's Banksia Top sewing pattern.

More details can be found here: http://hayleeatkinson.blogspot.com/2012/07/neverland.html

But in a nutshell (since really, reading through blogs is really annoying), I made this blouse this weekend using one of Megan Nielsen's (fabulous) sewing patterns. They are amazing! I recommend them to all. (And no I'm not getting paid to say that, I legitimately am in love.)

8  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Creme Polka-Dot Dress. on: May 07, 2012 08:53:48 AM
I found this dress at a thrift store in size XXL and took it in to make it fit me!



I really like how it turned out! A bit shorter than I was wanting but I still really like it for the most part.
9  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Help finding a pattern? on: November 26, 2010 03:04:07 PM
Hi everyone! I'm trying to make this dress and was wondering if anyone had any patterns in mind that could help get me started. I'm wanting to do it in a jersey knit.
I'm new at this whole designing thing so any help would be greatly appreciated!

I fell in love with this floral fabric from Joanns and decided to make a skirt out it.

Super easy project but I'm happy with the results!
