Today we have two very different yet equally fun Ballard remixes. And get excited all of you nursing mamas because there is one for you today!
Audrey of Skirt Fixation is someone I have been following on social media, probably like all of you, for awhile. Audrey leads the team at Skirt Fixation which is made up of two young sewists and a very cute model. I absolutely love that she taught her daughters to sew at a young age and that they love to do it, I hope to start teaching Sophie how to sew this year. I don’t know how Audrey finds the time to sew as a mom to 7, but she does and the results are so great.
Welcome back to Remix the Stitch – Day 4!
I hope that all of these amazing bloggers have been giving you a bunch of inspiration for your next sewing project. I know I have an ever growing list of clothes to sew now that my mind has been blown with the possibilities. Todays remixes are no different.
Thanks for joining me for Remix the Stitch – Day 3. I really hope that all of the looks you have been seeing the last two days have helped you to see new and different ways these patterns could work for you. I have already heard from a few people that said they hadn’t considered some of the patterns until they saw them remixed!! That is exactly what I was hoping for with this tour!
Make sure to grab your copies of the patterns over in the shop so you can start sewing along with these amazing bloggers.
For the last two weeks I have had a great group of bloggers join me to share their versions of the Ballard pattern. I hope you have had as much fun as me seeing all these great Ballards, not to mention the shirts that Allie of Indiesew made.
Wrapping up our pattern tour is Sara of Made by Sara and this peek of her shirt is so beautiful.
You have to head over to her blog to see the finished shirt.
Rita of Conversas de Hermanas is joining the tour this morning and she didn’t just make one version she had to make a second one after seeing Allie’s fabulous version with an open back but no band on her blog.
I just love seeing more of this version of the shirt.
You can find more pictures of not only this version but also the original version she sewed on her blog.
Today we have not one but two ladies sharing their Ballard tops and they are both so great!
Mandalynn of Striped Swallow Designs shares my love for fabric mixing on a shirt. I love that she used a different fabric for the sleeves and bands than the rest of the shirt. Mandalynn also decided to do the overlaps in the back smaller than the pattern states so that the opening would be bigger and I love it!
I won’t ruin the back of this shirt for you so you have to head over to Mandalynns blog to see more pictures of her Ballard.
The Ballard blog tour is coming to a close in a few days but there is no shortage of amazing bloggers still to come.
Today we have my friend Jaime of Jaime Sews in a beautiful floral version. It’s the most perfect fall floral!
It is extra special having her on the tour today because she is one of my biggest cheerleaders in this crazy online sewing community!
Now head over to her blog and read more about her shirt and see pictures of the back.
It is no secret I love to sew for myself. I am the type of person that will whip up a dress when I am having a bad day or throw together a quick shirt because it is date night and I want something new to wear.
What I love even more than sewing for myself is when I can create something new that doesn’t require taping another pattern together. Because lets all be real, taping a pdf pattern together is the pits.
Joining the blog tour this morning is Kimberly of Pity Kitty, a great tester I have had for both the Ravenna and Ballard patterns. She sewed up this comfy version of the Ballard that is perfectly paired with grey jeans and flats.
Make sure to head over to her blog to see more of her version of the Ballard pattern.
A few more days of the blog tour are ahead of us, so make sure to come back tomorrow for more great looks.
Joining us for our blog tour today is Donna from Once Upon a Sewing Machine and she is looking so great in this black and white polka dot Ballard. I am loving the solid black bands and the lengthened sleeves.
Head over to Donna’s blog to read more and to see pictures of the back of her top.
