Wednesday Weekly #141

Happy Wednesday, makers! I am about to test my next pattern and I am feeling so excited about it, but the nerves are creeping in too. It is always hard to share something for the first time, even to a small group of trusted advisors. I am very hopeful for the test because I cannot wait to show you what I have been working on. Wish me luck! In the mean time, here is what my fellow designers have been up to:

  1. I love that Kobe Top from Elle Gee Makes and that it’s made from a table cloth. I had thought about repurposing some tablecloths, and now I’m inspired! I also think that Sew Mariefleur has the BEST backdrop for taking sewing pictures ever. Those mountains are stunning, and they set her robe off beautifully.

  2. Thanks for the shout out, Helen! I love all of the makes you chose to highlight but that Suzi Kimono is so beautiful! And of course that gorgeous dress by Thanks I made it makes me want to break my fabric shopping fast!

  3. Best wishes with the testing for your newest pattern! You have made so many wonderful things already, I am sure this one will be stunning as well!
