Wednesday Weekly #146

Happy Wednesday, makers! I have been away for the past week visiting NYC and attending Camp Workroom Social! It was sooooo much fun and I got to a take a jeans-making class from Lauren Taylor herself! Needless to say, I’m feeling pretty #blessed to be a part of this community and my sew-jo is going crazy. All the pattern releases this week have got me dreaming up head to toe me-made outfits and putting way too much fabric in my cart. I hope you are all having a suitably spooky end of October!

  1. Kat’s Pink coat is AMAZING! I love it! I feel like she deserves some sort of sewing award for all the problem-solving she did to bring that project to completion. Wow! Also, that color-blocked Kelly Anorak is super cool. Love it!
