Making a maxi Wedgwood skirt has been on my radar since I designed the pattern last year. The lines of the pattern paired with a flowy rayon seem like the perfect combination for a maxi skirt.
I got this amazing rayon challis from Indiesew almost exactly a year ago, right when I decided to make this skirt, ha! You can see how badly I needed Sew the Year to finally tackle projects that have been laying around forever.
I decided to pair the fun retro floral pattern of the skirt with my beloved chambray Cheyenne. It’s a fun way to make a lightweight skirt work during the winter without being too heavy.
Who knew I would love a duster cardi as much as I love this Phinney Ridge duster cardi. I just keep looking at the pictures and am surprised I like it so much. I am convinced it’s the amazing loose weave sweater knit I picked up at Joann Fabrics. It gives it such a light flowy look that suits my body shape so much.
When I designed the Phinney Ridge I was going for a classic cardi that was missing in the indie pattern market. What I didn’t even consider was how it could easily be made into a long or extra long cardi with just a few alterations. So today I am sharing the alterations you need to do to lengthen your Phinney Ridge into any length, although I would encourage a duster length!
Somehow I became the 30 something mom who sees a trend but by the time I get around to it all the ‘cool kids’ have moved onto something new. I am pretty sure that is exactly the case with this cold shoulder Montlake.
I had no real interest in making one for myself but then I went and saw this cold shoulder Bellevue remix by Becca of Free Notion and just had to give it a try with my Montlake.
I can’t believe we have arrived at the final day of the Remix the Stitch blog tour. Hosting a two week blog tour is no joke but based on the reactions from everyone it has definitely been worth all the work that was put into it. I have had so much fun reading these blog posts along side all of you. I can’t even begin to grasp the huge list of sewing projects that I now need to make just based on this tour. I think I am going to round everything up tomorrow so that there is a great reference guide with links to all of the remixes by pattern for future reference.
Wow everyone, we are in the final days of the blog tour. I can’t thank you enough for the continued support not just of this blog tour but of me and my company over the last year. More on how I feel about all of you in tomorrows final blog post for the tour.
For Remix the Stitch – Day 9 I have 3 talented and lovely ladies sharing their remixes.
You always know it is the start of the school year when your lovely little kiddos bring home germs for you 🙂 Thankfully sick or not I can still sit back and enjoy the pictures of all the awesome remixes filling my inbox.
Joining us today for Remix the Stitch – Day 8 are three pretty fantastic ladies who have mad sewing skills.
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.
I hope everyone had a great weekend! We had a big birthday celebration for Sophie’s 5th birthday on Saturday, filled with lot of food, friends and family so needless to say the rest of the weekend involved relaxing.
But I am back at it this morning to share with you the three lovely sewist joining me for Remix the Stitch – Day 6!
Half way through the Remix the Stitch tour and I didn’t think it was possible to see so many different makes. No one has repeated one another yet which is pretty surprising. I know from peeks that next week has some equally fantastic outfits to come!
If you are just joining make sure to head back and read Day 1, Day 2, Day 3 and Day 4 of the tour. I promise you will see all of my patterns in a whole new light after seeing the things these amazing ladies made.
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.
