Sewing Indie Month, The Hackers Part 3

We're down to the final stretch!!!! Today is the last day that you can enter your creations for a chance to win all the fabulous prizes. Now, it is early and there's a full day and night ahead of you, so there's still time to hack away. Take a look a the free patterns that are being offered here, http://www.rhondabuss.blogspot.com/2014/05/sewing-indie-for-free.html. Just download one and off you go. A great hack could be something as simple as taking the Skinny Bitch Curvy Chick Tee, chopping it at the waist and adding a gathered skirt. It doesn't get any easier than that!  So please don't miss out on a great opportunity!
Now, we've had a few more hackers come in since yesterday.
This is a hack of the Mathilde Blouse from Tilly and the Buttons. By lengthening the pattern and making a few other alterations, http://www.emmakespatterns.com/blog/2014/6/2/mqowvnt0cml3hh3lwosu6b38xntucr came up with a cute and versatile summer dress.

This is a second hack from http://thehobbyharbor.blogspot.in/2014/06/Kristen-Tee-Free-Sewing-Pattern.html. Believe it or not, this is the Kirsten Kimono Tee from MariaDenmark. By the way, this is a free pattern :)

This great little summer peplum top made by http://stitchandcappuccino.wordpress.com/2014/06/03/sewing-indie-month-cami-peplum-top/ started life out as the Cami Dress from Pauline Alice.
The Out and About Dress pattern from Sew Caroline was used by Morgan of Thread Theory to create this perfect summer maxi.  You can find her post here on the Britex blog, http://www.britexfabrics.com/blog/2014/06/02/maxidress/
