This Week in Sewing Blogs // vol. 135

April 9, 2017   /   byHeather Lou  / Categories :  Feeds

Spring has FINALY arrived in Montreal and to celebrate G and I walked around all afternoon today, drinking coffee, stopping for brunch and shopping for backsplash tile. I had my first meeting with my contractor yesterday for the small kitchen renovation I’ll be doing before I move into my new place, so now I’m trying to figure out how to make this dream kitchen a reality on my minuscule budget. If anyone has a good source for pretty brass cabinet hardware I’m all ears.

I’m also on a bit of a bramaking tear now that I nailed the fit on my Harriet Bra, and will be cranking out my third one today. It is the most comfortable underwire bra I’ve ever made – hardly feels like I’m wearing anything at all, so no more stretched out bralettes for this lady! Hope you also find some time to make something beautiful this weekend.

ADMIRE

Speaking of Harriet – how pretty is this white lace set from Couture & Tricot?

Clever Tinker reminded me I need to add the Acton Dress to my spring sewing queue.

I’m such a sucker for black and white prints; charmed by this sweet dress from Diary of Chainstitcher and the ruffly sleeved goodness of this beauty from What Katie Sews.

Maybe one of my favourite Tamaracks – this green one from Julie is fantastic.

I am totally obsessed with the tencel Flint pants I made last week. Love love love this glam pair from Jasika.

A few friends released great patterns this week: the Fenway bra from Orange Lingerie, the Lodo Dress from True Bias and the Drape Blouse from Workroom Social. Get ready for our new spring pattern – we launch next Monday!

ReDpants Designs made another stunning statement dress.

An oldie but a goodie; read this and stop telling yourself you can’t make things because they’re “scary”.

A great link thanks to Renee; the politics of mounting a fashion exhibition.

LISTEN

Drop what you’re doing and start listening to S-Town; it’s easily the most riveting podcast I’ve ever heard and made me feel everything over the course of its 7 episode run. A tragic southern gothic.
