Seamly Summer Collection Blog Tour Roundup

Two weeks ago we launched the 2016 Seamly Summer Collection, which was followed by one rather epic blog tour. Nine sewing bloggers created their own versions of the Vallynne TankBasic Tee, and Wrapped Cardigan. We saw just how versatile these patterns are as these women hacked and styled them to suit their taste. One thing became very clear: these knit garments are as flattering as they are functional.

But I’ll let you see for yourself.


Inside the Hem

For the first time ever, we had a video participant in a blog tour! Lindsey from Inside the Hem shows how styles all three garments from the collection. Check out their YouTube channel for even more sewing inspiration.

Tori tested the Wrapped Cardigan and Basic Tee for us and paired the two for a casual look. We love the eggplant and heather grey (similar here) jerseys worn together. 


Dandelion Drift

Teresa | Dandelion Drift

Teresa has a casual, chic style so the Seamly patterns were a natural fit for her handmade wardrobe. She sewed up all three patterns and used our new Rayon Spandex jerseys!


The Sara Project

I never considered sewing the Wrapped Cardigan in a print until I saw Sara’s version. She also sewed up the Basic Tee and paired both garments with the Birkin Flares for an edgy outfit.

Teri tested all three Seamly sewing patterns for us and used Indiesew Rayon Spandex for her final versions! See how she shortened her Wrapped Cardigan here.

Fleurine sewed her Vallynne Tank in a cotton/spandex blend for a different silhouette that we love. P.S. She ventured out into the midnight Norwegian sun for these photos!

Lauren sewed up the Wrapped Cardigan for the express purpose of staying warm in polar AC conditions. We love this drapey layer sewn up in our Oatmeal Rayon Jersey.

Allie put together a lovely travel outfit with the Wrapped Cardigan. The extra draped fabric and long sleeves make this an excellent garment to wear on long travel days.


Cut Cut Sew
