Hello there, sewcialists! I’m excited about the volume of amazing makes and resources this week and I can’t wait to share some of the things I’ve learned. Special thanks to Camille from Attack of the Seam Ripper for her excellent posts about using Trello to organize projects and a fabric stash. I have implemented this and I am thrilled with it so far. I still need to photograph all of my fabrics, which is quite a job, but I think it will be well worth the effort.
A Stitching Odyssey has announced the continuation of the Vintage Pledge Series in 2016. You can head over to Marie’s blog for more details. I can’t believe the 90’s are vintage…egads.
Thread Theory is hosting a sewalong for the Camas Blouse, a very pretty and versatile women’s blouse pattern for both knits and wovens.
Sew over it released a new pattern, the tulip skirt! They have a knack for creating great pattern for wardrobe basics and this is no exception.
I love this Annie/Southport Mashup from Christy at Clever Tinker.
Aida’s Jungle January skirt is seriously awesome. I love that both sides of that fabric were perfect for this project.
Bella’s Alexandria Pegg Trousers and Alice top are a match made in comfort heaven.
Inspiration sent Carolyn on a mission to recreate a coat, and her progress is amazing! I love those pockets.
This wrap swimsuit by Carolyn is sooo pretty, I want! I think this would be a simple pattern to make and sew in the summer.
I have major fabric envy looking at Anya’s Laurel Dress. She also didn’t quit when the fit wasn’t right, and it certainly paid off.
Rochelle’s Sprout experiment turned out beautifully. I love her block print and the piping on those PJ’s is divine.
Portia shows us how to transfer thread from a large serger spool to regular thread spools in case you only need to serge a small area with a colour you wouldn’t want 5 large spools of.
Pauline illustrates two ways to widen sleeves.
Caroline from Blackbird Fabrics did a series of posts on the best fabrics for the Sewaholic Vancouver Collection.
I am super excited for my upcoming beach getaway, and Natalie Martin’s Bali inspired collection of beachy dresses is perfection.
