Happy Sunday makers! I’m just on the tail end of a New England trip, enjoying the colours despite the massive amounts of rain. I stayed a few days in Boston with Jenny and got to spend some quality time with Norma, Jen and Carrie. I bought some delicious Wool People yarn at gather here and am now plotting my next sweater project, this breathtaking beauty. It’s been a much needed trip, and I’m feeling creatively recharged and rested. Next week I’ll be launching into a number of Kelly Anorak tutorial posts if you’ve been wanting a little guidance.
And here’s what you’ve been up to.
Smitten with this romantic floral maxi dress from Mokosha.
A glamorous Delphi dress from the Scruffy Badger.
Yet another pretty maxi, this one in tie dye from The Quirky Peach.
Morgan made some incredible variations on the Morgan pattern I named after her. Morgan Trousers!
I love Bell Bird’s recent makes; like a very stylish monastic uniform.
Melissa’s jazzercise costume (using the Nettie bodysuit) made me laugh and laugh.
Meg made one of my favourite Kelly Anoraks yet; check out this beautifully made red number.
Helen’s recent photoshoot (and new skirt) makes the heart swell.
I really like the small change Jasika made to her Almada kimono. Such a subtle update but that pattern is forever transformed in my mind.
I am seriously tempted by the new Colette sewing planner; this would be a vast improvement over all my random lists.
The Fashion Institute of Technology is hosting an auction next week and the catalog is INCREDIBLE.
I loved this slideshow of Oxford University in the 70s.
Karen tells it like it is in this wonderful post on why she makes her own clothes.
Pattern Vault never disappoints; a great rundown of Rachel Comey’s history designing patterns for Vogue.
