Patterns Please

Judging from the feedback on my last post, many bloggers agree that we enjoy reading these sewing blogs, and that we shouldn't feel pressured to produce. Good thing as slow as I am! Actually, I am sewing, but I'm doing some Holiday sewing and cannot blog it right now. My time has been limited lately, but I had a great sewing weekend. I do keep up with your blogs as best I can, and when I can't physically sew, I sew vicariously through you.

In addition to enjoying your posts, you are also enablers. A couple of weeks ago, I bought three patterns during the sale at Jo's, that I've seen on you. And here they are.

V8605 is a jacket/coat. Diana of Sew Passionista made the jacket version. She sews a lot of designer patterns, such as Sewing Workshop, and looks fabulous in them.


Amanda made the pleated yoke version of B5284. I admire the way she finishes the seams of her garments. She makes french seams, Hong Kong seams, and uses bias tape for some. The inside of her garments are as nicely finished as the outside.


You all know Shannon's blog. She was sewing like the wind this summer. She made B4986, and of course, she's cute as a button in it.

I found a blog unfamiliar to me. It is http://communingwithfabric.blogspot.com/ . Shams loves funky clothing, and seeks out designer patterns as well as drafting some very unusual pieces. Drop by her blog and check out what she's doing. I'm sure you'll be pleasantly surprised.

Have a great week! Make it count!

Oh my gosh! Shams is so funky. I don't think I have ever seen a funkier dresser. She looks she's probably a very fun person to be around. I enjoyed going to her blog. Thanks for telling us about her.

Thanks for the tip on the new blog. She's just the type of person I've been seeking -- someone who enjoys funky eclectic clothing. Maybe she'll inspire me to think a little more outside the box like I did when I was younger.

Thanks for the new blog suggestion. I already have a hard time keeping up with the blogs I follow, but I'm always looking for interesting new ones to add to the mix

How funny. I just found that same blog this week from PR and am in love with the funky styles she comes up with . That skirt she made is rockin'!

Thanks for the link to Diana's blog... I just bought that pattern myself and am always glad to be able to read others experiences before I start!
I've been reading Sham's blog for a lttle bit now... LOVE her style!
