Happy St. Patrick’s Day! Today, I’m sharing with you a new favorite top in my absolute favorite shade of green. For some reason, I always find myself sewing for St. Patrick’s Day despite having no real connection to the holiday! Are you wearing your green today???
Athina Kakou is back at it again with a lovely knit dress pattern, just released on Wednesday! This one has a really interesting silhouette – sleek and sophisticated, certainly not the t-shirt dress we have all come to know and love in knit fabrics! The Suzy dress features multiple sleeve lengths, a boat- or scoop-neck, and a slim, midi-length skirt with a great layered slit detail. When I had my first glimpse at the dress, it reminded me quite a bit of the equally sassy and sophisticated styles of the 1960s… So when Athina asked if I’d like to try out the pattern, I was thrilled!!
Happy March!! I’ve decided that this year, as a way to step back and recognize what I’ve made and make sure I’m on track with some of my sewing goals this year, I am going to do a little recap blog post every couple of months! I’m really looking forward to these! If you follow along with my stories on Instagram, you may be familiar with some of my plans and goals for 2019 sewing. I started putting these goals into action as soon as the new year started, and here’s a little rundown of how my first two month segment turned out!
The Tabor Sweater is hands-down my favorite pattern at the moment. The grey waffle knit version I made at the end of 2018 has been the one thing I’ve reached for most frequently in my closet this season, and I hated when I had to put it in the wash. So instead of pouting all day while it was out of commission, I decided to make another!
