This month, in partnership with IndieSew, I decided to see how I could incorporate a few of my (very loose) sewing goals / objectives for the year into the Grainline Linden Sweatshirt. The Linden is a favorite amongst makers – if I remember correctly, it may have gotten the most love back in November for the Sewcialists TNT month! I finally caved, and had to have one (or two!) of my own!
When Cottoneer Fabrics asked me if I’d like to sew up one of their fabrics, I was so excited to say yes! Cottoneer is a new US-based online fabric store – their official launch was just under a month ago on January 18th. When the owner contacted me about their upcoming launch, I was so impressed by the collection of fabrics offered through the store. She’s got quite a lovely collection, and stocks some great basics (like pastel denims and stripey knits), as well as a number of lines through some of my favorite fabric manufacturers, such as Art Gallery and Cotton + Steel. You can quickly tell when browsing the shop that she’s thoughtfully selected each fabric she offers, which makes it so much more special. See what I made with my first haul from Cottoneer, and find out how you can win 3 yards of rayon fabric and 1 Deer & Doe pattern!
Alright guys, here it is – the finale of #MeMadeFall2017. Some of you may remember that the third and final installment in this super fun collaboration was VELVET. The perfect transition from fall to winter, and such a trendy fabric this year, this was the perfect way to wrap up our project. Although I planned to make more than one velvet piece for the collaboration, life got busier than I’d foreseen, and I had to narrow it down to just one piece – so of course, it had to be a showstopper. And with that, let me introduce the velvet Nettie.
If you’re longing for sunny days and bright colors, don’t worry – I’m here to brighten your day with Dana Willard’s Blush fabrics, her most recent collection through Art Gallery fabrics. I was super honored when Dana asked me to participate in the fabric tour for her Blush fabric line, but had a rough time choosing what to sew up! My first idea (as always) was a bright colored cotton for a fit and flare dress! Ultimately, though, I decided to go a different route. Come check out what I sewed up with this gorgeous fabric.
