Anthropologie

Ode to Anthropologie

In case you haven’t noticed, I really like Anthropologie. I don’t love their prices, but as a 30 something, I like that they make clothes that are age appropriate and interesting. (I find that most stores either want me to dress like I am a teenager or an older lady!) Anyway I have made a…

Miss Emmie’s "Anthro" dress Part 3

So we are finally here!!! If you haven’t read Part 1 and Part 2, of the making of this dress, feel free to go back and look. As a reminder here is the In An Instant dress from Anthropologie. And now here is my version of the dress made for $11 from materials bought at…

Miss Emmie’s “Anthro” dress Part 2

So I probably should have included this picture in Part 1, since it’s the last skirt shot, but I was only really including pictures from one upload session, and this one didn’t fit, so it’s officially here. 😉 After getting the waistband all sewn into a circle and with its elastic, I then evenly divided…

Miss Emmie’s “Anthro” dress Part 1

My Version of an Anthropologie Cardigan, part 4

Back to Part 3 in case you missed anything.  Next I put black sewing thread in my sewing machine, and then mostly followed along the lines (anywhere I didn’t follow the lines it didn’t really matter, because once the paper was gone who was to know?) Then I tore the paper away to expose the…

My Version of an Anthropologie Cardigan, part 3

Here is Part 2 in case you missed it When looking at the original Anthropologie cardigan, you can see where the chiffon is placed, it is caught in place with the black stitching and then eventually the beading too. I cut out irregular circles from the dyed pieces and then placed them down on the…

My Version of an Anthropologie Cardigan, part 1

I Love this cardigan from Anthropologie, but did not love the $98 price tag I decided that I could definitely make something similar for less – little did I know for how much less! I went into the Salvation Army Store on Wed (that’s the day all clothes are half price) and found this grey…
