Sommer Romper

Creation: Sommer Romper

Materials Used: Foxgloves Navy Poplin, Stem Dot Pink Poplin, Rain Broadcloth & 5mm natural lace

The Visionary: Terra at Mama Says Sew!

Our Thoughts: We love Terra's choice of prints with the Foxgloves Navy and Stem Dot Pink poplins, complimented by a Rain broadcloth lining. Not to mention the pattern is adorable!

 

I love trying out fabric from Organic Cotton Plus. The navy fabric I used for this romper is probably my favorite that I've tried from them so far. I love the print, and it's so soft! There is also a similar print that I really wanted to try that looks like it's from the same line. It's called Fox in the Foxgloves.

Sleeveless Blazer

Creation: Sleeveless Blazer

Fabrics Used: Grey Twill & Pink Batiste

The Visionary: Beth, 110 Creations

Our Thoughts: Beth at 110 Creations made a lovely sleeveless Blazer to compliment her bump using Grey Twill and Pink Batiste

 We've all done it. Made a pattern that we loved, plotted 50 more versions, then instantly moved on to "ooooo shiny!" and neglected the tried and true. I made my first Victoria Blazer almost exactly two years ago...eep! I LOVE that blazer, it's one of my favorite things I've ever made. For all that time, I've been wanting to make a second (and third...) and I finally did!

Sophisticated Slip Covers

Fabrics Used: Natural Denim

The Visionary: Suzannah, Create/Enjoy

Our Thoughts: Suzannah at Create/Enjoy made a pair of sophisticated slipcovers using our Natural Denim. How elegant!

 

Phew! What an accomplishment! This weekend I crossed a major to-do off my list: Update my amazing vintage slipper chairs with new covers, since the slightly too-thin white canvas ones I made in 2010 (!) were getting pretty tired. They never fit perfectly, and I didn't have a good solution for the bottom edge so I just left them hanging, mostly covering the fabric, and they were a little too tight so it worked... but it was time for an upgrade.
