Sewing Indie Month, The Hackers Part Two

The hackers are beginning to accumulate! What fun it is to see what everyone is doing with their pattern of choice. Last week I showcased 6 hackers and their wonderful creations, 2 of which had 2 entries. Way to go ladies!!! I don't like to leave anyone out, so I thought I would showcase the new entries that have come in.
First up is http://pootleandmake.wordpress.com/2014/05/27/fo-bhl-anna-dress/ with her lovely remake of the Anna Dress from By Hand London. Such cute fabric :)
Next up is a post from http://fabrictragic.blogspot.com.au/2014/05/finished-leisl-and-friedrich-von-trapp.html, and this is all about fun. You just have to hop over to her blog to read about the costumes that she made. The lederhosen were made using the Jedediah pants pattern from Thread Theory. I'm so happy that at least one man got in on the Sewing Indie Month action. If you would like to try your hand at a pair of men's pants, here's a link to the pattern,  http://threadtheory.ca/collections/store/products/jedediah
A very different take on the Mimosa Top from Skinny Bitch Curvy Chick was done by http://sewingdreamsblog.wordpress.com/2014/05/30/mimosa-part-ii/ It's as pretty on the inside as it is on the outside. Be sure to check out her post.
The next entry comes from http://sozowhatdoyouknow.blogspot.co.uk/2014/05/tutorial-how-to-pattern-hack-coco-for.html, the brains behind Me Made May. She used the Coco pattern from Tilly and the Buttons and she turned it into a top perfect for breast feeding. Absolutely ingenious!
Combining 2 patterns and coming up with a real winner is what http://www.laurasinclair.com.au/2014/05/31/emer-mae/ did. She combined the Emery Dress from Christine Haynes with the neckline of the Mae Blouse from Blue Ginger Doll.
Here's another great take on the Anna Dress from By Hand London done by http://justkeepsewing.net/2014/05/31/peplum-top/ Great combination of fabrics too!
Last but not least is another free pattern hack by http://thehobbyharbor.blogspot.in/2014/06/polly-top-in-sheer-chiffon-pattern-hack.html. She used the Polly Top from By Hand London. So very cute with those checker board pants!
I have a feeling that over the next few days the entries will begin to pour in, so I will do another showcase post on Wednesday. Remember, Wednesday June 4th is the last day that you can enter your hacking creations, so time is running short! Be sure to enter your hacking creations here,
Good Luck!!!!!
