Welcome to my blog! I created ‘The Ravel Out’ to capture my makes while I unravel my sewing ideas, one stitch at a time.

Ravel (out)


  1. unravel; untangle.

  2. undo (twisted, knitted, or woven threads).

Summer Makes Round-up (Phase 2)

Hello! I've been busy enjoying the beautiful summer days while trying to make time fore some sewing projects. My goal to sew more comfortable everyday clothes is going great. I am able to get more wear out of my clothes now instead of focusing on projects that need a special occasion.


1. Melilot Top

This is my go to button down shirt and is my fourth melilot top so far. It's comfortable and easy to make. I bough this gorgeous floral viscose poplin from Blackbird Fabrics. More details and my review of this pattern can be found here.


2. Burda 6721

This is my fifth shift dress using this pattern so it is obvious that I am in love with it. I left the sleeves off and added a slit for this version. I bought this beautiful polished cotton fabric in Ghana last year. My blog about this pattern almost three years ago can be found here.


3. Burda 6721

No need to introduce this pattern again haha! I left the sleeves off and added a ruffle for this version. I bought this striped cotton fabric from my local Fabricland.


4. Hunter Tank

I used the hunter tank pattern by Jennifer Lauren Handmade to make this summer tie front top. It's so trendy and the fabric makes it even more special. I plan to make multiple of these with modifications for all seasons so watch this space. 100% rayon fabric bought from my local Fabricland.

5. Thrifted Refashion

As always, I love to refashion thrifted finds. This time, I made simple modifications to this boring looking skirt and updated it to a trendy knee length button up skirt with a slit.

I hope you enjoyed seeing my summer projects. I am currently planning a few fall makes and cannot wait to share those with you!
