When you have a tried and true pattern there are so many ways to you can remix the pattern to be just about anything you envision. The Fauntleroy raglan pattern is definitely a tried and true pattern for me. The fit is the perfect balance of fitted yet relaxed and when it can be sewn up from fabric to finished garment in under an hour, I call that a win for any wardrobe.
Four years ago, almost to the date, I released my first sewing pattern. I had no idea where this business would take me but I have to say it has far exceeded my expectations.
What started as one pattern has grown to a collection of 15 sewing patterns, an online course, and now teaching sewing workshops. I have also travelled to teach at Craftcation in Ventura, Ca and been featured in and written articles for Sew News Magazine. None of this would be possible without all of you! So let’s celebrate with a contest/giveaway…
I probably say this every time I sew up a remix of one of my patterns, but I love taking a pattern and finding a way to make something new. Then I get to share it here with you so you can see yet another way to use that pattern. Today I am sharing a View Ridge Dress, and it is the perfect summer outfit.
Spring is here and I can finally share with you the sleeveless Leschi dress I made a few weeks ago. I had been planning a sleeveless version since I released the pattern in October, so I thought why not go for not only sleeveless but also a dress. This is the ultimate spring/summer dress!
The fabric I chose really chose me while I was working the Style Maker Fabrics booth at Sew Expo last month, I was the perfect weight and drape for my vision. Unfortunately they are all sold out, but check out these other rayons you can choose from, I especially love this floral rayon challis.
Remix the Stitch is such a fun way for me to share new and different ways you can sew my patterns. Last month I shared a Peplum Montlake and this month I am sharing all about my Front Placket Wedgwood skirt. Back in April the lovely Becca of Free Notion sewed up a button placket Wedgwood and I couldn’t get it out of my mind.
When I celebrated my first businessiversary in 2015 I compiled a HUGE blog tour highlighting some pretty fantastic bloggers. If you weren’t around then, I highly recommend going back and checking it out. So much inspiration. Full Collections of Posts Here
The theme of the blog tour was Remix the Stitch, where the bloggers took one of my patterns and remixed it any way they wanted. The end result was a huge collection of pattern hacks, so many I never would have thought of.
