Happy Wednesday, makers! This week I am working hard on my next pattern as well as some upcoming fall projects! I will be participating in the Refashioners 2017, so I’ve got a suit jacket that looks like it’s been through hell on my sewing table, ripped to pieces and spilling interfacing guts everywhere. I’m also fulfilling my denim jacket dreams by making the Hampton Jacket from Alina Design Co. I can’t wait to finish these up so I can get them on the blog! What are you working on for fall?

Oooh, the Lois dress combines a lot of the elements I was looking for in a dress pattern! I just did a blog post this afternoon on my inspiration:

Thanks for sharing the images by Maria Svarbova – they are stunning!

Such a lovely collection of inspiring links! Thank you for including my dress <3.

I think the Lois Dress will look fabulous on you Helen!

Thank you for mentioning my list of activewear tutorials! BTW I have just binge listened to your podcast and really like it! You have such a great rapport together, plus the sound quality and your delivery was so great even in episode 1, it made me think you have done this before in some capacity! I added it to my sewing podcast resource page now as well. People have been telling me about you guys for quite a while but I wanted to listen to several episodes before I added your podcast to my list. Great work and keep it up!
