Sewing friends!! I am oh so proud of my latest make!! The new Itch to Stitch Causeway Bomber jacket is probably the most complicated thing I've ever made, but nevertheless, after making the muslin, I was able to bang it out over two evenings and a Saturday afternoon. With some patience (and maybe a few glasses of wine!) you can make this awesome jacket too!
I took a little bit of time in the last few weeks to sew for me! A pattern test for Itch to Stitch never fails to get me motivated to build out my wardrobe a bit more!
Two great sales from two great independent sewing companies I wanted to share with you! First up: Itch to Stitch - get 20% off all patterns with code SUMMER2020 (expires today!) Second: D&H Fabrics & Co are having their birthday sale. Get 30% off fabric with code HBD30 (expires tomorrow, June 23)
You know what I love about knit skirts? They're super comfy and immediately make you look put together with less effort than it takes to put on a pair of jeans. And skirts are way easier to sew than jeans! Itch to Stitch has just released the new Balboa Skirt and it comes with so many options, you may never need another knit skirt pattern again!
It's new pattern time! Itch to Stitch launched the Tallinn Top and Dress today - this is a fitted knit top/dress with princess seams, center front seam, and options for a peplum, top, or dress. You'll need fabric with about 50% horizontal stretch and good recovery. I used Cotton Lycra for mine but you can use any jersey, double-brushed poly, ITY or French Terry.
The new Itch to Stitch Cape Cod Capelet (try saying that 10 times fast!) is available now and is a perfect quick sew AND gift for the holiday season!
I tested this garment last week, and it is seriously the fastest pattern test I think I've been on! You could really cut and sew this one in under an hour!
This month we're pulling out less popular patterns from the Itch to Stitch catalog and giving them some love! The rule was that no more than 2 bloggers could use the same pattern. With 24 bloggers on this tour, you're bound to find a big variety of new loves! And there's a **GIVEAWAY** and a **SALE**. So read on ;-).
This week, Itch to Stitch Patterns is doing a little promotion called, "ITS Summer Classics" - get it? ;-). If you've made something summery from Itch to Stitch, go ahead and share it on Social Media with the hashtag #ITSSummerClassics to join in the fun! Read more...
Over the last couple of weeks, I've been back into testing mode with the Itch to Stitch Kauai Top! I do enjoy testing for Itch to Stitch - it's a great way to get a project for ME done and build some online sewing friendships along the way!
I'd tested a similar style pattern a few years ago (shortly after I started pattern testing) but it was a bit disastrous. Since I trust Itch to Stitch, I thought I'd give this style another shot. (Read more)
I had some leftover fabric from the newest collection from Affordable Fabrics and More (preorder closes tomorrow, Monday November 26), so I decided I needed to make myself some underwear with it! And Oh My Goodness: I am such a DIY underwear convert!!!!! Most comfy undies EVER! Have you made underwear before? I know for me… Continue reading Underwear for me!
