Introducing the new Madrona Skirt! This skirt was a staple for me through last spring and summer and I am so happy that it is now a pattern for all of you.
Madrona is a modern wrap skirt that can be sewn in both woven and knit fabric and gives you a different look based on the fabric chosen and the way you style it. With the narrow waist band and two button closure you can easily adjust the fit of the skirt to match your body and where you intent to wear it.
Cozy really should be my middle name. I pretty much aim to have all clothes I wear have an element of cozy, but sometimes I would like to look a bit more put together. Fauntleroy is the perfect combination of cozy and refined. With raglan sleeves and shoulder darts, Fauntleroy is a twist on your traditional turtleneck, I like to call it a relaxed turtleneck. Definitely not the turtlenecks of the 90’s.
I am so excited to release this pattern that has been on my mind FOREVER! I was in a bit of a pattern design/sewing funk through most of December and January but this pattern finally brought me out of it. It turned out exactly how I wanted and ended up being even more comfortable than I imagined.
Bellevue has a wide open neckline with two finishing options, either banded or faced, and four sleeve lengths. I am a sucker for elbow length but the short sleeve is perfect as the weather is warming up. The pattern is a mix of knit and woven with endless possibilities.
So excited to finally be showing you the ins and outs of the Capitol Hill pattern I created for the Sew Fab Bundle. You still have until tomorrow to purchase the whole bundle so make sure to snag your copy before it’s too late. If you are looking for some of the other patterns from the bundle that I sewed, here is my versions of the Jersey Glam Dress and Palazzo Pants I also sewed up a remix on the Jersey Glam Dress and the Extraordinary Girl Top. For even more inspiration head over to the Sew Fab Bundle Facebook page to see testers and other bloggers sharing their version.
Today the blog tour is heading to KZJO Studio where the lovely Kaysie is sharing her grey burnout jersey version of the Ballard. I love the top paired with skinny jeans and ankle boots.
Make sure to head over to KZJO Studio to read more about Kaysie’s top and see more great pictures of her top. And come back tomorrow to see my friend Abby of Sew Much Ado show off her Ballard.
Today is also the start of the sewalong over at Indiesew. Get your copy of the Ballard pattern and grab your fabric and head over to read part 1 of the sewalong.
A friend recently said it perfectly when she described my style as simplicity with unique designs. I couldn’t have described the look and feel I am going for with my patterns better than that. I strive for comfort and style while still being able to live our lives and wear our handmade clothes. No one wants a closet full of clothes they can only wear on date night or for that special occasion. We want to proudly wear our me made clothes no matter what exciting or day to day things we are doing, and if those clothes are interesting thats even better.
It’s here it’s here the day is finally here! You can now purchase your own copy of Ravenna!
When I decided on a whim last May to sign up for Lauren Dahl’s Pattern Workshop (affiliate link) course I never could have imagined I would actually get to this point. I had absolutely no knowledge about pattern drafting at all. If you could see the first email I sent Lauren with a bunch of ridiculous questions you would laugh, I had no idea what I was doing.
