La Droguerie // This week in sewing blogs vol. 83
Sewing Blogs


Happy Sunday Makers! Hope you’re enjoying your Easter weekend with lots and lots of chocolate. As you read this I’m out in the country somewhere laughing at Harry romp around outside and/or laughing at my friends trying to find the Easter candy I’m going to hide all over the house.

Spring is in the air and in our hearts, which means lots and lots of sewing from all of you… here are my favourite projects this week.


Amanda’s Easter dress makes me think church on Easter Sunday must be the hottest ticket in town!

I was so excited to see Devon post after a long blog absence; even more that is was for this super sweet cherry print dress.

Mainely Dad’s ode to Kanye streetwear made tea shoot out of my nose AND IT WAS WORTH IT.

Loooove the new Falda Jacket from Pattern Fantastique – such an innovative design! Especially taken with this chambray version from Blogless Anna.

Kay the Sewing Lawyer has the most meticulous handiwork – this jacket fits like an absolute dream.

Officially obsessed with the new pants pattern from Tessuti. 10000% making these in linen when the temperature heats up….

A flowy Sylphide dress from Ms. Wabi Sabi – perfect fabric!

Allie, you’re killing me in this blue gingham two piece – flash back to my own gingham two piece setacular.

Two beautiful Clare coats this week – Becca is chic in grey, and Jodi stands out in cobalt.


If you’re like me, you’re a little obsessed with the Smitten Kitchen food blog and also bought Deb Perelman’s book the minute it came out. This interview with her made me so happy because she’s just as thoughtful and awesome as you could ever dream.

Same goes for Lucinda Williams (aka my Shero)- I totally lost it when she talks about her father on the Death, Sex & Money podcast.

    I hope you’re enjoying your visit to the country. I think the SK link is wrong. It goes to a sewing blog. But, I may have skimmed too fast.

  • Thanks for the shout out!! Hope you’re getting to indulge in copious amount of sweet treats this weekend 🙂 Spring may be in the air (and I am sewing summer dresses) but my Clare coat is being worn regardless of temperature… And will continue to be for a while yet ☺

  • What an awesome round up today Heather! Of course, you had me at gingham, but seriously…not one but two Clare coats and lace. I loved every link.

    The Tessuti pants and the Falda jacket are both looking very modern and hip. I actually have a couple of patterns that have a similar look, and I think I may just have to give them a go.

    • Those two patterns would look AWESOME! paired with each other.

  • Confession… I’m lying in bed lapping up all.the.sewing.goodness in this week’s post avoiding getting up and dealing with my two boys who 5 minutes ago were yelling and possibly killing each other (but now playing almost happily). There are just too many gorgeous makes!! Thanks for the excuse 😉

  • Love those Clare Coats and I’m so with you on the Tessuti pants! Thanks for the shout out too 🙂

  • Jodi Bonjour

    Thank you for sharing my coat, Heather! It was such an enjoyable project.

  • I’ve always loved how you feature other (especially lesser known) bloggers!

  • Mainelydad

    Thanks as always for the shout-out, Heather Lou! Glad I could make you laugh.

  • Devon

    Aw thanks for the shout out!!

  • kristin

    Kay the sewing lawyer…one of my faves for sure. She does such beautiful work.

  • I loved Devon’s cherry dress too – such a perfect fabric-pattern combo! And wowsers Amanda’s easter dress is fabulous! Please make those Tessuti pants!
