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!
One thing I really enjoy about sewing is that we have the ability to make our own personalized version of the ready to wear garments we fall in love with. Check out how I turned many years of love for an image on Pinterest into one of my new favorite dresses!
It’s January Reveal Day! The Sunny Dress was a perfect pattern to kick off #SewMyStyle2018, and to ease us all into a brand new year of sewing. I am slowly becoming more comfortable with knits, and was excited that this pattern made our list this year. Here’s a look at my Sunny Dress.
The Crimson Toaster Sweater 2 – probably my most worn make of 2017. I don’t imagine that I have a whole lot to say about the Toaster2 that hasn’t already been said, but I truly do love this garment. Check out my first – but certainly not last! – Toaster Sweater 2 this morning.
