S is for SEWING

It's time for another round of Sewing with Boys - Girl Edition.

The lovely ladies at Sewing with Boys have created another amazing e-Book, this time with a back to school theme.  You may wonder why I keep joining these boy sewing tours, but the answer is simple: they take "boy" styles and jazz them up with ALL THE DETAILS.  For girls you can make an a-line skirt special by adding ruffles or bows, but for boys you need to have a little more imagination.  And this 'S' is for Sewing e-book is full of a ton of special little details any boy or girl would love.

Alice In Wonderland - 150th Anniversary

Alice's Adventures In Wonderland was one of my favorite books when I was younger.  So much so that I read Through the Looking Glass as well to absorb as much Alice as I could.  I even have The Walrus and the Carpenter poem (recited by Tweedledee and Tweedledum) memorized still.

Nani IRO En Garden Challenge

I've been so excited about today's post!  Rachael from Imagine Gnats challenged April, Brooke, and I to a super fun challenge.  We were sent the same Nani IRO En Garden fabric (*affiliate link) to make anything we'd like and then were pitted against one another in a sort of "who sewed it best" competition.  I'm always up for a friendly competition and was drooling over the fabric she chose, so of course I jumped right in.

The Trouser View and a 4th of July Celebration

Happy Fourth of July to all you Americans out there!  Today's Paneled Sunsuit focus is on the Trousers (view G in the pattern).

These loose-fitting pants are the bottom half of the jumpsuit so they are designed to sit a bit high-waisted.  There are options for no pockets, regular pockets, and pockets with a faux piping like the pops of red in these pair.  These are made with a light-weight denim from JoAnn Fabrics, but they are designed to work with a variety of wovens and even a hefty knit like a ponte de roma as well.
