Happy Sunday makers! I’m currently waiting to go home after a weekend Ginger workshop at one of my favourite studios, The Workroom in Toronto. I’ll never get tired of seeing people discover how achievable jeans making is; for one of my students it was the first time EVER making a garment and she left with a totally professional pair in her hands. So. Awesome. Here’s what you’ve been up to:
Have you seen the new Cashmerette pattern, the Harrison Shirt? I recommended it to a few students this weekend when they complained about gaping shirtdresses.
Fiona made her first jeans and did a fabulous job.
Ginger Flares are perfect for fall and Melly NAILED IT.
Mokosha’s chic little black dress is totally my flavour these days. Black is the new black.
A tutorial from That Black Chic for a very funky little wrap top.
A very pretty Roscoe blouse from Blogless Anna.
I want to buy all of this beautiful handmade bias tape. All of it.
I love the idea of the Apparel Manufacturing Boot Camp. This is a pretty fascinating series detailing what exactly they do there. The process is so utterly different from what we home sewists are up to.
An ode to the housedress.
I want this rad biking airbag SO BAD.
I need to update my iPhone iOS so I can paste these sewing kitty stickers on every text I ever send.
