Happy Wednesday! First of all, we want to give a big “thank you” to everyone who supported us during the re-release for the York Pinafore! We feel very lucky to be a part of such a wonderful community. This week saw the release of some great patterns for spring and lots of creative makes from fellow sewists.
News (clockwise from top left)
Itch to Stitch released the Kalispell Dress.
On the Cutting Floor released the Jasper Pants.
Sew Over It released the Isla Dress.
Katie Kortman used a custom designed fabric from Spoonflower to create this rashguard swimsuit. She also made a cropped blazer from the same fabric! I didn’t know that I needed a blazer for the beach, but now I definitely do.
Pattern and Branch used some yellow corduroy to make these beautiful Jutland Pants! The Jutland Pants are a pattern designed for men, but Lisa proves that it doesn’t matter as long as you like the pattern.
Tilly from Tilly and the Buttons used their new Eden duffle coat pattern to make this gorgeous lilac and mint creation. The colours were inspired by Aquaria from RuPaul’s Drag Race, so obviously it’s a winning combination.
Trish Stitched used the Hudson Pants and Seamwork Skipper to make this delightful loungewear set. Hanging at home feels so much more luxurious when your loungewear is cute!
Gillian from Crafting a Rainbow contributed to the Cali Fabrics blog with this Adeline Dress for her sister, with a very cool alteration- a hidden buttonhole in one of the patch pockets to accommodate her insulin pump. What a great idea!
Mary Martha Mama published this tutorial on how to sew a pet bed! Bonus cute dog pictures.
