Some of you may remember a few weeks ago, I talked a bit on InstaStories about feeling so excited to attend a friend’s birthday barbecue… Only to wake up to 40’F weather! My Toaster Sweater came to the rescue that day, but I came home dreaming of warmer weather and this top for cook-outs over the summer. Check out my Tracy Bee top!
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!
