Unicorns Make The Best Shirts (and Dresses!)

This project was a long time coming. Back in July, when I was still gestating mega-baby and the pregnancy hormones glossed over my memories of the intense newborn period, I signed up for Baste + Gather’s Momiform MAKEover series.

Black Stretch Denim McCalls 6711 Blazer and Stretch Lace Wiksten Tank

McCalls Blazer and Lace Wiksten Tank

I have wanted to make myself the perfect casual blazer for years, and even made a false start or two. In my mind, the perfect blazer is close-fitting, lined, and classically cut. It was surprisingly hard to find a pattern that hit all three. The classic looking ones are usually drafted for intense tailoring (think […]
