This Week in Sewing Blogs // VOL. 93

I‘m not gonna lie, it’s been an intense few weeks. We have a huge pattern launch tomorrow, along with a new online workshop AND fabric kits, and it’s meant a lot of long nights getting everything ready (FYI, I’m not using the proverbial “we”; I have a wonderful studio assistant who I need to introduce to you at some point soon because she is my personal angel more often than not). If you’re on our mailing list, you’ll get an advance look at what we’ve been cooking up when our newsletter goes out tonight. Otherwise we’ll be dropping everything tomorrow!

Here’s what you’ve been up to:


Such a pretty floral dress from Lindsay Woodward.

Another great self-drafted tank from Fringe Association.

Great neutral pieces from Crab & Bee.

A gorgeous skirt from the perennially chic Tessuti blog.

Erica is an off the shoulder glamour bomb.

More chic shoulder peaks from Couture et Tricot.

I love all the Seamly pieces Kelly made.

Can’t tell what  love more, Mokosha’s new maxi dress or her adorable haircut.


Swedish Hasbeens are 30% off right now!


There’s a new (hilarious) all-lady Canadian sketch comedy show and every clip I’ve seen has been the best ever. This sketch about buying “cool jeans” KILLED ME! (thanks for teh heads up Carmen!)
