I knew I would make another pair of these quickly. Who doesn’t love an easy, elastic-waist, comfy pair of pants? Last time, I left off the leg elastic and made them a little cropped. This time, I used the leg cuffs. I did fold out an inch in the length at the thigh and again under the knee. I’m about 5’5” and my height is in my torso. I knew I wanted these a little shorter than called for and with my shorter legs, I decided two inches would be about good.
This is a linen/rayon blend from JoAnn’s. This is a really comfortable fabric and it doesn’t wrinkle like I thought it would. There is no stretch in it all. I also bought it in a gray fabric. I’m not sure what I’m going to make with that, but another Jalie Vanessa pant is not out of the realm of possibilities.
Another Jalie winner!! And on a side note. We recently acquired a furry little friend. She’s six months old and a rescue kitty that was abandoned in a building. 🙁 Poor baby!! She seems to be getting along with our other fur baby. The kids are totally in LOVE.

Hopefully I can that one blogger sometime soon as well. The fabric is a perfect medium weight linen from the Fabric Store. It’s their military green color, although they have a lot of really great colors right now that I have my eye on. I actually have some of their black linen in my stash as well that I plan to make into something fun. It does wrinkle, as per all linen, but I don’t mind that at all. In fact these photos are after wearing the dress all day so not so bad. The only change that I made to the dress is to shorten it. I shortened by 1.5″ which feels about right. It does get a little short on the sides sometimes, but I wouldn’t alter it because I like the […]read more
I love handmade ceramics. I can’t deny. New or thrifted, I love them ! I have already made a blog post about Sun Tree Studio (the brand of the talented Nata Pestune), based in Hamburg (Germany) back in January 2016.
Last week she updated her online shop, and I couldn’t resist this gorgeous, matte black porcelain beauty that you can see all over my blog post. Look at that texture & that shape ! I tried to take a close up to let you appreciate the texture !
I’m looking forward to using this beautiful cup. In the meantime, if you want to get a similar one, or a different one, you can visit her shop here !
