Happy Cinco de Mayo! Today, I’m here for two reasons – I’ve got one VERY exciting announcement to share, and I’m also showing off this ridiculously fun taco print dress that I’ve sewn up specifically to eat tacos in!
It is April Reveal Day! Though I’ve already seen some great Marigold Trousers and Jumpsuits throughout the month, I am hoping to see even more today. It really seemed that the Marigold was the furthest that participants have been pushed out of their comfort zone by Sew My Style to date (myself included!), but I’ve loved seeing what everyone has created. As for myself, I’ve created my first pair of PANTS and I am pretty stinkin’ proud of that!
One of my favorite things about the online sewing community is the great sense of camaraderie amongst makers. Bloggers are happy to support each other, and there is no shortage of makers supporting each other’s products. One of the best ways that I see this done is with pattern makers or fabric shops who are emerging onto the scene and getting their names out there. I love sewing up new patterns, and can almost always find a way to make something that fits into my wardrobe. Most recently, I had the chance to work with Seen & Sewn Patterns, and I’ve truly loved the experience. Right now, two patterns have been released through Seen & Sewn – the Cozy Cardigan, and the Tracy Bee Top. I’m here to show off my Cozy Cardigan today, but keep an eye out next week for my take on the Tracy Bee!
Happy Friday the 13th! For some reason, I’ve always loved this date – and today, I get to celebrate one of my favorite days with a little extra excitement. Earlier this year, Amy Nicole asked me if I’d like to participate in the upcoming blog tour for her first ever pattern, the Patti Pocket Skirt. I’d been eyeing the pattern for awhile, so of course I was so excited to be asked! Check out my stop on the Patti Pocket Skirt Blog Tour today!!
