May BeeBox | Vinegar + Honey Co.

May 20, 2017

The 15th day of every month is quickly becoming my favorite day.  Because it usually means I get a notification in my email, telling me that my BeeBox from Vinegar + Honey Co has shipped.  Fabric mail is the only kind of mail I like to get.

The girls KILLED IT this month.  They sent two 1-yard coordinates and I am dying over how pretty they are!

While I do like florals and have been collecting a lot lately, I do still shy away from pinks and lighter colors.  I’ve got such a bold, graphic style that it’s hard to break free from that while fabric shopping.  Especially shopping for fabrics online!  Again…this is why the BeeBox is such a great idea.  Because they send me things I generally wouldn’t choose for myself and I end up loving it.

This go-round, I mashed the Made for Mermaids Mama Mya with their Mama Ella.  I basically used the entire body of the Mya and used the neckline, binding, and ruffle from Ella.  The results??  Sweet perfection.

M4M is starting their sew-a-long this week for the Ella, so I was drawn to create one more thing for my closet using that pattern.  (You can read about the SAL HERE if you’re wondering what’s happening this week.)

It’s so funny because the two things I hate most in sewing are binding and gathering.  And I feel like allllllll I’ve been doing lately is binding and gathering.  I’ve complained about it multiple times.  And then I get these fabrics and am like “how about I make a shirt that requires both binding and gathering?”  Oh boy.  What is wrong with me?

Nope.  Wait.  Worth it.  I freaking love this shirt.

I wasn’t totally convinced I would like the ruffle cascading over my shoulder like that.  But of course, I do like it because it adds a little extra to the front.  I should just turn my brain off until things are finished…so I can make the decision after I’ve completed the item and not kill myself with worry and sewing doubt during the process.

Because seriously.  How sweet and romantic is this top?  I die!
