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.
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.
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.
Today we have Jess from If Only They Would Nap showing off her shimmery Ballard. I love that she keeps it real in her blog post because we all appreciate when people are real and tell us what they really think. Some people like Jess may wonder if they will really like the back of this shirt but I know once they sew it up and wear it out they will realize how great it is.
Make sure you head over to her blog to see more great pictures of her top and to read more on what she thinks.
Today Ajaire of the blog Call Ajaire is joining us for our 6th day of the blog tour. When she sent over this picture yesterday I got so excited. Not only is she participating in the blog tour which is exciting in and of itself but do you see what I see in this picture? See it yet?
Yes that’s a different fabric for the front and waistband! I absolutely love taking a pattern and using two different fabrics on it, so it makes me happy when I see others think the way I do. Make sure to head over to read all about Ajaire’s Ballard top on her blog.
As a pattern designer we are forever grateful for our testers, they help make a pattern even better than where it started. Amanda of Turtle Birdies was a tester on both Ravenna and Ballard and is now currently testing my third pattern. She is the type of tester that will be completely honest with you but in the most constructive and nice way possible because she truly wants to make your pattern better.
Amanda so graciously offered to join the blog tour today and you will love what she has done with the pattern.
This morning our pattern tour is headed to my lovely friend Abby over at Sew Much Ado. Abby and I both live in Seattle so we had our first ‘date’ at a park this summer with our kids and hit it off instantly. I was so excited when she agreed to join us for the blog tour.
I love Abby’s choice of the houndstooth and the shorter top looks so great on her. Jump over to her blog to read all about her top and see more great pictures.
Yesterday I introduced you to my newest pattern, Ballard! It has become that shirt I wear on repeat because it is so comfortable and can be worn with so much. I pair it with skinny jeans and moccasins or leggings and boots. Even better is that this pattern takes no time at all to sew.
As part of the release of this pattern I am hosting a blog tour of some amazing ladies and their Ballard tops. Today Annie from The Enantiomer Project is sharing her super cozy heathered pink version that she styled amazingly with her leggings and boots. This is the epitome of comfort while still looking great.
