Sewing, Thrifting, and Catching Up!
Thursday, May 9, 2013
I did manage to do a little non-market sewing a few weeks ago and stitch up my second Staple Dress. The Staple Dress Pattern is a fantastic dress pattern by April Rhodes. It's an easy sew with a great fit, I love it! I don't have to make any adjustments, it's perfect as is! I've made three so far, including a muslin, and have quite a few more planned!
Carnaby Street collection. As soon as I saw it, I knew I'd need a dress from it. I love how it turned out! Unfortunately it was a bit dark when we took photos of me wearing it, so they're a bit blurry. You can see a better photo of the dress here!
You can find the Staple Dress Pattern for sale on April's blog, here.
this tutorial and this one. You can see them before the alteration here.
Pyrex Passion! I may be a bit biased, because those are my photos on the cover! I was so tickled when Michael contacted me about working on the cover of his book. This guide is much more comprehensive than the other guides out there, I'm so proud to have been involved in some small way! You can find it for sale here.
Madison Modern Quilt Guild meetings. I got paired up with Kris! She made me this super cute mini quilt! I can't wait to hang it up in my sewing room, it's so happy! I made her a string block zipper pouch, which I totally forgot to take a photo of. Thanks Kris! :)
