It hasn’t felt like two weeks have passed since we launched the 2015 Spring Collection
. It seems like just earlier this week we were unveiling the full
pattern bundles, and kicking off the blog tour. I can say with certainty that it’s been my favorite two weeks this year…maybe ever. Your enthusiasm around these five patterns makes us totally giddy.
Haven't grabbed your pattern bundle yet? You’ve got exactly three weeks until spring officially starts. We suggest you gather your fabrics, get your sewing machines tuned, and print your patterns out. Need some Spring Collection inspiration? No problem, let’s see how five sewing bloggers sewed these five patterns to perfection.
Melissa | I Still Love You
Melissa from I Still Love You
wowed us with her totally custom Marianne
tunic. She modified the pattern to include side slits, long sleeves, and longer back hem. We love her chic new tunic paired with acid wash jeans. My next Marianne, will be shamelessly just…like…this.
Abby | Sew Much Ado
The designer of the Seafarer Top
sewing pattern, Abby from Sew Much Ado
showed us how a springy print and leather accents can lift our spirits. She added sleeve tabs and a pocket in a contrasting leather suede that takes the top from casual and cute to totally chic.
Erin | Sewbon
My dear friend Erin, blogger at Sewbon
, first sewed up the Envelope Clutch
in STAMPED LEATHER. Yes, friends, that’s right. The entire clutch, piping and all, was sewn out of this amazing leather that she sourced locally near Denver. We love how she used a double cap rivet to finish the strap.
Jaime | Fancy Tiger
I was ecstatic when Jaime from Fancy Tiger
signed onto the Spring Collection blog tour. I just love her style and her sewing skills are top notch. I was even more excited when she decided to blog about the Jamie Jeans
. Jaime’s post includes some great feedback for those sewists looking to sew jeans for the first time. Paired with her jeans is Fancy Tiger’s very own Sailor Top
sewn up in lightweight cotton sateen. These patterns were meant to be worn together.
Beth | Sew DIY
Beth from Sew DIY
wrapped up our blog tour with a showcase of her Seafarer Top
and Envelope Clutch
. Her photos have us thinking that we skipped spring and went right to summer, as she looks stunning in the ocean blue top. Also, check out her blog post to see the vintage fabric she used to line the Envelope Clutch. It was her grandmother’s fabric!
Yesterday, we put a call out to our Facebook
followers to see if you’re interested in a Jamie Jeans sewalong. The answer was a resounding, YES! So we’re doing it folks. Jeans are key piece to nearly every woman’s wardrobe and we want you to have a great experience sewing your own. Stay tuned in the coming weeks for more details on sewalong dates!
Three weeks till spring, and two options to bundle the Spring Collection. You can do this. Your closet will thank you.
