Wednesday Weekly Helen's Closet

Happy Thursday, makers!  I fell behind this week, but I still wanted to get this amazing roundup of beautiful makes to you, even if it is technically a day late!  This is the problem with naming your weekly roundup after a certain day, I may have to rethink this.  Also, heads up that I will be taking a brief hiatus from the roundups for 2 weeks, I will miss curating these posts, but I am in for a busy mid-summer and I need to take something off my plate 🙂  When I get back, expect the BIGGEST weekly yet.  In the mean time, I have scheduled a bunch of fun posts and I’m excited to share some of my summer sewing with you!

It was a slow week for pattern news, let me know if I missed any exciting pattern releases!  Otherwise, enjoy these awesome creations from fellow sewists <3

This Kielo Wrap dress from Jolies Bobbins is absolutely smashing.

You likey? LOL…thanks so very much for the feature today Helen! I really appreciate the love. And thanks also for such a great, summery round-up of sewing projects. Perhaps that’s why we finally have some real summer weather this morning!

Isn’t it just the most beautiful day?! I don’t know that I can take credit for that, but positive sewing vibes can’t hurt, right? I have a pair of harem pants that I wear all the time, but I also live on Commercial Drive, so it is only natural 🙂

LOL….yes, boho has always been alive and well on The Drive. Lucky you!

Girl, I think what you meant to say was “Who would like to volunteer to write my weekly rounds up for a few weeks?” Because I’m sure some one would! Didn’t you and I do that once for Closet Case Files? (I think that was you – I feel like that’s how I came across your blog!)

Yes! That is such a good idea and I wish I had thought of it sooner. I’m already in the thick of things and honestly don’t even have time to put the word out/organize guest posts 🙁 Next time I will remember this, though, it was really fun and nice to get to post for Heather last year!!

So honored to be in the WW! And in such good company, really amazing stuff.Great suggestion to call for guest posts… I bet you’d have no problem finding enthusiastic fellow bloggers (like me!)

Another great round up!! Enjoy your busy time off!

Thanks so much for the mention Heather – and beside some great makes too! Loving the Winslow culottes and Sweet Shard’s fringe top 🙂

Ahhh sorry Helen! (I was at work emailing someone called Heather at the same time ha). Definitely not one for multi tasking x

Haha, no problem Shauni! Thanks for the love 🙂

Thanks for the mention, Helen! 😃 I’m honoured to be included alongside so many lovely makes.
