Sew Our Stash Sewing Summit Edition
September 26, 2013 By 9 Comments
I'm really starting to LOVE these Sew Our Stash days (the last Thursday of the month) where Bev from Flamingo Toes and I share some stuff we've been sewing for ourselves. I am excited to see many of you joining in and tagging your pictures with #sewourstash on Instagram. It's been great fun to flip through them! I totally lucked out with going to Sewing Summit last week since a few of my classes helped me take some time for myself and do some selfish sewing which has not been happening amongst all my costume sewing. These pictures were from my Polo refashion class taught by Merrick of Merrick's Art who I met during Fabric Weekend. Basically we all showed up with oversized frumpy men's polo shirts and turned them into cute form fitting tops. See oh so frumpy to oh I'd actually wear that out of the house. Here is her Polo Refashion Tutorial if you want to make your own! Running with Scissors who I also happened to be lucky enough to room with. Her basic blouse class was fantastic. We each went away with a woven shirt a pattern and LOTS of fun ways to personalize and adapt the shirt pattern. I'm thinking next time a bunch of pintucks down the front would be pretty. Check out Jessica's great variations on this simple blouse. @flamingotoes and me over at @raegunramblings to see what we're up to and to catch mid-month features. And of course hop on over to Flamingo Toes to see what Bev has been sewing this month.
