My SewStylish Spring Issue Article!

I often write for the lovely ladies from SewStylish, and when they approached me about my current article, I was SO excited! They are releasing a new pattern with Simplicity and they asked three designers to rework it in their own way. Such a fun project!

And I had such good company. In addition to my reinterpretation, the lovely Gretchen Hirsch of Gertie's New Blog For Better Sewing, and the talented Cal Patch of Hodge Podge Farm, both were asked to rework the pattern too. I was so excited to see what they were going to do with it!

My project is a simple and easy combination of the top and skirt patterns, topped off with the included obi-styled belt. I love dresses and saw this as a great way to make a dress from a pattern of separates. In fact, all three of us made dresses! I guess we're all dress obsessed! We were all given a color theme and when I got mine, I knew I wanted to use this springy Joel Dewberry floral print. It's so gorgeous and perfect for a spring garment. If you'd like to get some, we have it in stock at Sew L.A.

Pick up your copy today at most bookstores, or you can get it on-line directly from the lovely ladies at Taunton Press. And if you make one of my versions, please share!
