My finished skirt with my Rainbow Pinup Girls border design, which I will be wearing today to celebrate International Women's Day. This design (border and small repeat) is now available as fabric, wallpaper, and gift wrap from my Spoonflower shop (link in bio)! I consider myself a not-very-good seamstress, but I am super pleased with how this skirt came out! Thank you to @pinupgirlclothing for the inspiration, as well as for the yellow peasant top, earrings, and shoes I am wearing! #pinupgirls #ootd #illustration #design #surfacedesign #fabricdesign #spoonflower #sewing #sewingproject #simplicitypattern #simplicity0466 #pinupgirlclothing #diversity #art #artoninstagram

You guys, I LOVE my new dress, the Netti from @pinupgirlclothing 's Golightly line! It makes me feel so happy and joyful. It's also nice to get something off the rack and not need to hem it for once (I'm short). Oh, and best of all–POCKETS!!! So yeah, this dress is basically perfect! #pinupgirlclothing #ootd

I know summer is long over, but I finally made something out of my Pineapple Whips fabric design: an off-shoulder, dirndl-inspired dress from the "Patterns by Gertie" line (Butterick B6322). I deviated from the sewing pattern a little bit, and added an elastic neckline and armholes instead of using seam binding, as well as added pockets because they make my life so much easier. Fully lined, all edges serged and finished, and the zipper only a *little* wonky–it's probably the cleanest garment I have ever constructed so far. #sewing #fashion #diy #sewingproject #surfacedesign #dolewhip #pineapplewhip #textiledesign #spoonflower #illustration #butterick #butterickb6322 #butterick6322 #b6322 #patternsbygertie #ootd

With myself and my kid being sick so much lately–likely attributed to her new enrollment into preschool–I felt like a human for the first time in days today. Mentally, I have also been out of it, feeling anti-social and reclusive, not wanting to do anything but retreat to my painting. I felt more like myself today, though, and maybe that had something to do with the outfit I picked, made up of pieces I really enjoy: skirt by Emily and Fin, Voodoo Vixen top from Pinup Girl Clothing, and brooch found on Etsy. Here I am, posing in front of the painting I am currently working on. #ootd #pinupgirlclothing #emilyandfin #art #painting #painter #paintpalette
