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!!
An awesome year of Sew My Style comes to an end today, can you believe it? I had such a great time as a leader for the project this year, and I truly enjoyed sewing up a few things out of my normal wheelhouse. I’ve been looking forward to the December pattern since we announced the schedule a year ago! The Axel skirt by Megan Nielsen has so many views to choose between, but version three was always my top pick! I came across this beautiful fabric from Style Maker Fabrics back in August, and scooped it up right away for this project.
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!!
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!
