I am loving the boho vibe these days.
I really love flowy, feminine pieces – they are so flattering on almost everyone.
But I didn’t get to it, until I saw this amazing, SIMPLE tutorial on one of my favorite artsy sewing blogs,
Esther is a 19 year old fashion design student whose gorgeous designs and photography is simply amazing.
This tutorial is genius, quick, and I loved it so much I had to make two.
I had this fun print that I just bought at the Michael Levine Loft in LA. It is sheer and flowy and perfect for this design.
I also wanted to make a floral jersey one. On that same trip to LA, I picked up this lightweight floral jersey at Angel Fabrics. Isn’t it fun?
The tutorial is basically hemming and a couple of tiny seams. I used a 42″ wide by 40″ long piece of fabric, after some trial and error on the size. For the jersey one, I made things really easy by ironing down the hem with some stitch witchery (or you could use Steam A Seam) first, and then sewed the hem.
This cardigan is so versatile. I love it with jeans and a tee, but I tried it on with a plain coral maxi dress I had, and loved how it looked. I also paired it with my Penelope Peplum dress, and I think it is such a fun look.
Go check out the tutorial, see how easy it is, and make yourself a couple!
P.S. Aaron did not want to be left out of the photoshoot so here is my cute photobomber. Don’t mind my facial expression, half the time my photos look like this. I am so busy trying to position myself right that I forget about smiling. I really wasn’t mad!
