These aren't very exciting but I had to show off this cute fabric I found on Spoonflower

 I made like 15 of them in different fabrics (also used this one, this one, and this one) but the pineapple one's my favorite.

The milk one's a close second though, I would link to it but sadly it looks like the shop's gone offline so it isn't letting me.
Seriously that website is going to be the death of me. I can spend soo much time and money there.
(No this isn't a sponsored post, but Spoonflower hit a sister up! ;)

For the pattern, I just took an existing apron and traced a pattern from it. I lined all of them which took forever and a day, but it makes them look so much nicer so it's worth it. The seam's are finished with bias tape.

I have one issue with this site. I hate that it's so so incredibly expensive. I want to try their silks and knits but $26-40 a yard just doesn't seem worth it in my opinion. I also wish they printed both sides of the fabric.  Ok that was two issues I have, so this was your unsolicited rant from me for the day. haha I'm sure it won't stop me from continuing to spend too much time and money there though. Because let's be honest.. haha    

Pineapple Fabric: Bella_modiste
Milk Fabric: Shop's offline unfortunately

Lace Sleeves Crop Top

I recently ordered a bunch of scrap lace off Etsy so I decided to make a crop top!

The lace is gorgeous I think, I wish I knew where to find it by the yard. I got it from Leanimal's shop because I think she's freaking amazing and absolutely love all the fabric she uses. I'm sure the original stuff costs a lot though.

I drafted the pattern using a basic sloper, but I was really just trying to recreate this shirt so maybe I should have just traced that pattern. I get nervous doing that though.. but the fit generally turned out the way I wanted.

The length is bugging me but I think that's because I'm used to seeing shorter cut crop tops and, that's not happening. haha

The bodice fabric I used is satin/polyester I think (?) from Joann's.

Of course it's white (sensing a theme here? haha) and I love it! I'm sure I'll wear it all the time.

Bodice Fabric: Ivory Satin from Joann's
Pattern: Drafted
