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!
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!
My #2017BestNine grid revealed a couple of things to me – the most obvious being that the Ice Cream Dress took the cake for the favorite! In fact, 3 of my 9 “best” liked photos of 2017 were of the ice cream dress! Not that I’m surprised. This thing rocks…
