the goddess of dawn March 20 2014, 5 Comments
One year ago I came across this post and instantly fell in love with everything my eyes laid eyes on. I loved the girls, the clothes and I especially fell in love with Alexia's eye for just the perfect fabric. I go into quilters cotton overload sometimes with it's over use in garments and it was refreshing to see a talent such as Lexi using gorgeous garment fabrics. (Don't get me wrong I love a nice quilters cotton just like the rest of you but it's not meant for EVERY garment.) In September of 2013 I see this post and am blown away. I thought to myself, this girl has some serious talent and I must get to know her and I would love to work with her. So I went for it and asked if she'd like to work with me on a new pattern and a few months later I'm so pleased and proud to announce the newest Figgy's pattern by Alexia Sotelo.

celestial maxi skirt November 15 2013, 0 Comments
supremely good, sublime
I'm in love with this skirt. I love the simplicity of the handkerchief hemline, the instructions for the french seams and the exposed elastic. This is the skirt mothers/fathers sewists dream of because it take 40 minutes to sew from cut to finish and the result is flawless and stylish. This skirt looks great paired with the Celestial Pullover or Pleated Tee and really hip with a layered look using the Seraphic Raglan and Celestial Pullover. Have fun playing with the hemline length to make a full, tee or knee length by just adducting the length on the pattern. On chilly winter days just add boots and Sunki leggins!
Fabric choices for the skirt vary from cotton lawn to jersey knit. Just make sure when you're shopping for the perfect fabric take the fabric off the bolt and check the drape. You want a fabric that will move with the person you're sewing for so nothing too stiff or heavy. I hope someone tries making the skirt in a lightweight small wale cord! Let me know if you do! Also, don't be afraid to try a 2-3" decorative elastic it can give the skirt a fun pop of color!
