Hot off the machine

It's been pretty busy in the sewing studio these days. The (week long) feeling of spring weather got the creative spark flickering and I was super motivated to make loose and breezy blouses!

Additionally, I found some great odds and ends of fabric at my local fabric store and at the Oakland Museum White Elephant sale. Finding creative ways to use up leftover bits is my favorite kind of creative challenge.

 This 100% cotton grey and white ikat is one of a kind and available for $50. Email info at dejaluxestyle dot com for sizing and payment options.

This is one of my favorite silhouettes! Very feminine and drapey, and wearable for most of the year here in the Bay Area. These are $70 and made to order in sizes S - XL in white 100% linen. More colors will be posted as available. Email info at dejaluxestyle dot com for sizing and payment options.

In keeping with my zero waste efforts, I'm making this little coaster for my amazing and kind co-worker Michaela using up all the scraps from the grey ikat and some old Marimekko scraps I got at a Crate and Barrel Outlet years ago:

The black and white stripe will be the binding, and I'm doing some sashiko-style quilting with 3 strands of embroidery floss. I re-wound the floss on an empty thread spool because it gets so tangly in those little skeins! My stitching isn't perfectly straight, but I hope she will like it anyway :)
