Wednesday Weekly Helen's Closet

Hello Makers!  These weeks have been flying by so it’s nice to have an excuse to sit down for a few hours and admire all the amazing projects you crazy makers are putting out there!  There is never a shortage of cool things to share and I love seeing all the hard work and dedication that you all put into your craft.

News

Two very exciting pattern releases this week!  Lauren Dahl from Baste & Gather released the much anticipated Birkin Flares, and they already have quite the following amongst the pattern testers.

Colette released their newest pattern, the Phoebe Dress.  It’s a gorgeous vintage inspired frock with a double breasted button front.

 

Makes

Fiona made a Mila Shirt out of a gorgeous lightweight cotton crepe and it drapes so beautifully!

These dungarees on the Tessuti blog make me seriously want to give this style a try, which is saying something.  They are super cute!

Carolyn’s gorgeous floral dress is stunning and festive with those jingle bell buttons.

Sarah’s Inari Tee / Maya mashup is a great idea!  Another reason to try the Inari tee….

I LOVE this floral dress from Tea. That low crossed back and that print, AHmazing.

The Desmond Roll Top backpack has been catching my eye lately, it is such a cute design!  I may have to try this one out when I’m through my Granger Bag sewalong 🙂  Check out this version from Nettie.

 

Resources

Portia shows us how to drop the crotch on a pair of lounge pants for some harem flare.

Head over to the sewing loft to learn what mercerization means.

I was super intrigued by this tutorial on lace insertion from the Salme blog.

I hadn’t been following the skirt series from In The Folds, but this roundup caught my eye.  Lots of great information in here!
