It's no secret... I love, love, LOVE the Seamwork Mesa pattern. This is the 5th time I've sewn it, but only the 3rd time I've made it for myself :) I just love how modern and simple the shape is, and how super easy and fast it is to put together. I end up wearing at least one of my Mesas every week. Want to check out my other Mesas? Mesa #1, Mesa #2, Mesas #3&4.
I bought this fabric back in December, knowing that it would eventually become a mesa dress. The pattern on this sweater knit is pretty wild, but it works great with simplicity of the Mesa pattern. I cut a straight size S and increased the length by a few inches.
Pattern: Seamwork Magazine's Mesa Dress
Size: Small (lengthened a few inches)
Fabric: Light sweater knit from Fabric.com
Did I like the pattern? Oooh yeah, this is one of my go-to patterns!
|I finished my necklace! Yay!!!|

In other exciting news, I made a necklace! I've been wanting a minimalist statement necklace but I haven't wanted to spend the money on one. Awhile back, I dug-out my extra metal and jewelry-making supplies from college, and started cutting. Originally I wanted the lower triangle to be larger, but I changed my mind and made them both the same size. The necklace is made of aluminum, brass, and gold.
I cut the two triangles with my jeweler's saw, drilled holes in them, sanded them, screwed them together with a teeny-tiny nut and bolt, and attached my chain with some wire. I bought the chain online.

I'm working on my first pair of jeans! I started cutting and topstitching some Closet Case Files Ginger Jeans :) I'm a little intimidated about making jeans, but also really excited!
