Sew Saturday Snippets #7
Well it’s Wednesday, the weekend is a few days closer 😉. Today’s outfit includes the @dressy_talk new sweater I made in this lovely green knit with stretch lace contrast. I was a bit worried how well they would look together. I think it looks great. If the weather holds up, I’ll get the last run of the week in. We’ll be seeing normal Temps soon😞. Have a great day! _____________________________________.. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #ootd #handmadewardrobe #sewing #youtuber #memade #sewist #runningnstyle #diysweater #dressytalkpatterns #memadeeveryday #dressytalksweater
Renata made up this Dressy Talk sweatshirt dress sweater (I told you there were sweaters this Snippets!) in this minty knit with lace contrast! I’m in love with the contrast, and this green is fantastic!
Sal made this very vintage seaside ensemble. The top is the Deer and Doe Givre tee with a cheery cherry gingham circle skirt from a vintage Advance pattern. It looks so delightfully warm where she is, and the scenery is too serene! All this to prepare you for the big finish…
Jeanette made this wonderfully snuggly faux fur Simplicity 2150 coat with this awesome animal print lining. It was 9 degrees when she took this picture, and I can only imagine that that fur was doing its job shielding her from the Arctic!
Contests/Sewing Community Challenges and News
Watch this space Monday for details on the 2018 edition of The Day and Night Dress Challenge. I have a killer team assembled and some incredible prizes rounded up for this challenge! I’m SO excited!!!
The #smyly videos and posts on Instagram are going up, and it’s turning out to be an interesting challenge. How great to hear from people that sewing has helped people not only come to respect their own bodies but that it helps their mental health.

Here’s my New Year’s Re-sew-lutions.
I’m finishing up my quilted vest tutorial series. I have 4 videos on the playlist, and there’s 2 more to finish uploading today. Part 1 gives you some pattern choices and I show you how to assemble a quilt sandwich. In part 2 we mark and quilt the fronts and back. In part 3, I show you how to cut bias tape, sew up and finish the seams. Part 4 shows you how to sew the hood together. In part 5 we finish the armholes and sew on the hood. Finally, in part 6 we’ll slap on a separating zipper and a pretty bias tape hem. The outtake at the end of this video is too funny.
Sew Over It announces the new round of their PDF club. You get a discount on the 12 patterns for the year and a free pattern at the outset for a reasonable club price.
What’s next for you this mid January?
