I have never felt more inspired, more creative, and more ready to overhaul my handmade wardrobe than I do at this very moment. And it's all because of these nine women.

Nine sewing bloggers and pattern designers joined the 2016 Spring Collection Blog Tour and sewed the most impressive garments I've seen yet. They injected a healthy does of personal style into their garments and created pieces that are perfect for spring weather. It would be an understatement to say I am speechless.

So let's just take a look at what happened over the last two weeks:


Fleurine | Sew MarieFleur

Fleurine kicked off the blog tour with these stunning garments photographed against an impressive Norwegian backdrop. Her Sanibel Tunic, Rushcutter Dress, and Florence Kimono are so perfectly her: chic and happy. See her post here.



Teresa | Dandelion Drift

Sanibel by Teresa from Dandelion Drift

Teresa, the blogger behind Dandelion Drift, sewed up a rayon Sanibel Dress ideal for hot Florida weather. She used the wrong side of the fabric for a more subtle look. See more beautiful photos here.



Lauren |  Right Sides Together

Rushcutter Dress | Lauren from Right Sides Together

My fellow Coloradoan, Lauren from Right Sides Together whipped up a mod sleeveless Rushcutter Dress. We love the exposed bias binding around the neckline! Read her thoughts on this pattern here.



Erin | Sewbon

Sewbon | Lou Box Top

Erin was our model for the Spring Collection and also sewed up a garment for the blog tour - thank you Erin! She sewed up a dress length Lou Box Top in this fun rayon challis. See more photos here.



Beth | Sew DIY

Sew DIY | Indiesew Spring Collection

I had the honor of meeting Beth in LA a few months ago and I instantly fell in love with her personal style. She sewed up a lengthened Sanibel Dress, her own Lou Box Top (with a zippered back!), and a pair of Birkin Flares. See her posts here and here



Emily | In the Folds

Florence Kimono | Emily from In the Folds

The designer of the Rushcutter Dress showed us her process for pattern hacking! She sewed up the Sanibel Dress and the Florence Kimono and explained the changes she made to achieve this look. Read her post here.



Caroline | Sew Caroline

Florence Kimono by Sew Caroline

The designer of the Florence Kimono showed us the cropped length version with pom pom trim! Sewn up in her very own Chalk and Paint fabric, we love how "Caroline" this look is: bright and cheerful! See her post here.



Lauren | Baste + Gather

Baste + Gather | Indiesew Spring Collection

The mastermind behind the Birkin Flares surprised us all with a cropped version of these 70's inspired jeans. Paired with her knit Lou Box Top and a knee-length Florence Kimono, she's created an outfit that I can't quit thinking about. See her post here


Sophie | Ada Spragg

Ada Spragg | Birkin Flares

Sophie wrapped up our Spring Collection blog tour with this stunning pair of Birkin Flares. For those of you still on the fence about sewing jeans, you must read her post. This was her first foray into jeans and the result is perfection! See more photos here.

I want to extend a huge thank you to these nine lovely ladies who made this blog tour so fun and inspiring! There's more Spring Collection goodness to come, including some highly requested tutorials.
