Hello there! Today we’re talking pattern standoffs!
Do you have sewing cravings? Sometimes I want to sew just for fun, some days I really want to make something that I urgently need in my wardrobe and, well, sometimes I want to take up a masterpiece project. Most of the time the particular craving depends a lot on the time I have on my hands.
Time is actually quite an important factor when choosing a pattern for your next project. There are a hundred ways to sew a skirt. I can be done in half an hour or it might take a couple of days. That’s completely up to you and the pattern you pick.
By now you probably know that I’m a sucker for chiffon and georgette fabrics, although they are difficult to cut out and shit to sew. For some reason I always end up buying at least one chiffon/georgette when I go fabric shopping and this might be due to the fact that these kinds of fabric are usually quite cheap 😀
I have something super exciting to share with you! After months of work my new patterns are now finally up on le blog and ready for you to download as Print-at-home PDF patterns.
The Hepburn Collection is the first pattern collection of my new pattern company called audrey & me Patterns. The Hepburns consist of a dress and a separate skirt pattern. Both patterns are drafted to fit perfectly together so that you can combine them easily into a chic fitted dress. Depending on the fabric and bodice & skirt options you choose you can make it into a sundress, a dress fit for work or a glamorous dress for going out and sipping cocktails.
John Lewis Sewing Bee with Lisa Comfort
Me and fellow sewing bloggers Roisin (Dolly Clacket), Fiona (Diary of a Chain Stitcher), Amy (Almond Rock), Clare (Sew Dixie Lou), Elena (Randomly Happy) and Emmie (My Oh Sew Vintage Life) spent Saturday at John Lewis Oxford Street, sewing up a storm together with the lovely Lisa, founder of ‘Sew Over It‘ at the John Lewis Sewing Bee (JL is celebrating their 150th anniversary!).
