Something new! There are so many talented folks out there who have made cool stuff from my patterns, and I never tire of seeing the fabrics they have chosen and their own individual takes on my designs. I know I like to peruse the internet for photos of real people wearing finished products before I jump into a new pattern, so I hope you enjoy getting to know some new friendly faces and the blogs they author.
Jeni from In Color Order made the Schoolhouse Tunic - click here to read her original post.
What were your goals for this project?
My goal for this project was simply to add another handmade top to my wardrobe. There is something so exciting about sewing garments! I'm always hoping to learn something when I sew a new pattern, in this case I stitched my first facing.
How did you incorporate your individual style into this project?
I think I incorporated my style into this project with my fabric selection. I love fabrics that have a bit of whimsy to them, and this print from Lizzy House's Hello Pilgrim collection fit the bill.
How long have you been sewing?
I have been sewing for about 12 years off and on. I just started sewing clothing for myself in the last year!
What's your next sewing project?
My next sewing project will probably be a fun summer dress!
