But the first order of the day is The Wednesday Showcase and once again, this is a post that is packed with inspiration.
First up is a lovely blogger, Meg McCarthy of www.cookinandcraftin.blogspot.com She's a talented sewist with a heart of gold. Not only does she sew for herself, but all of her family and friends too!
I wore jumpsuits in high school and have not embraced the return, until I saw this super cute make of Meg's, McCall's 6083. Not only stylish, it looks so comfortable.
What a fun take on a beach cover up, the Mojave from Seamwork. They call it the caftan that goes beyond the beach.
I just couldn't believe my eyes when I saw this lovely make. It's the Union St. Tee from Hey June. Check out not only the couldn't be more perfect job on the neckline binding, but the super cute sergered finish. Meg's made a number of these tops. I can see why.
As I said, she's quite generous with her sewing time. A friend was getting married, so she decided to make this super cute nightie set for her bachelorette party. It's the Fifi pattern from Tilly and the Buttons.
Be sure to pop on over to Meg's blog, your head will be spinning with inspiration!
Next up is the beautiful Caroline of www.4-sisters.blogspot.com. She is one lady who is not afraid to take on a challenge.
Inspired by the show Mad Men, she made this incredible striped coat. I especially enjoyed the unexpected pop of color in the lining.
I don't know about you, but when I put a lot of work into a garment, especially work that isn't going to show once the piece is completed, I always think that it would be fun to just walk around with the insides on the outside. See world, I did a lot of work!!! Well, Caroline finished her coat, but I just couldn't resist showing off her work.
Caroline commented that she had too many special pieces of clothing and not enough casual pieces, so she made this fun Burda top. I really like the style lines of this top. Hmmm, this is nothing more than a number of rectangles. I see a Fabulous Free Pattern Friday piece brewing ;)
As I said, she's not afraid of a challenge, so she took on the task of making a great pair of jeans. Success!!!! Even the dreaded back view is just spot on. I want those jeans!
Have a wonderful day!
