Happy Wednesday! It feels like the sewing community has been especially energized this past week. We are hard at work getting our next pattern out to testers. This is a new design for Helen’s Closet and we can’t wait to share more!
Trish Stitched refashioned a thrifted maxi skirt into an adorable pinafore with a removable bib! Not only is it perfect for the #sewbibs challenge, but refashioning thrifted clothes is an excellent way to exercise sustainability in your sewing practice.
A Stitching Odyssey combined the Jennifer Lauren Grable top and Pauline Alice Aldaia dress to create this gorgeous 50’s-inspired dress in subtly striped velvet. Most importantly, the dress matches her bunny, Opie. I think Marie is on to something with #DressLikeYourPet.
We have all experienced SewJo (sewing mojo) or lack thereof! Why does it leave us and how do we find it again? We discuss our personal experiences with losing our SewJo and things we have done to get it back. Listen here.
