Guest post contribution from Sally...Do you need more reasons to sew?

This week's post is a food for thought piece from Sally...in case you need some more reasons on why sewing is good for you!!!! Personally I'm totally with her on the positive social interaction you get from sewing; I think the sewing community online is the best group of positive people you are likely to come across.

Deer and Doe Myosotis blouse hack


Deer and Doe Myosotis blouse hack and pattern review

Having eagerly awaited this pattern since the #sewmystyle2018 schedule was released, I surprised myself by being a bit conflicted on what version to make. I adore the statement sleeves and ruffles with their boho chic feel, but can see that the practicality of version 2 with its plain sleeves and skirt would make it more wearable on an everyday basis. Since doing the #wardrobebuilder project last year I also am a little more considered in my makes as I found that what I enjoyed making isn't always what I ended up wearing a lot, which is what led me to this....a Myosotis blouse. This way I get to keep some of my favourite features and make something that I know I will be able to wear a lot.

Closet Case Patterns Morgan Boyfriend Jeans

Closet Case Patterns Morgan Boyfriend Jeans sewing pattern reviewLast month was 'No Fear New Jeans' month from Closet Case Patterns which meant that there were some great discounts to be had. I happened to have my pattern ready and waiting, but it did spur me on to getting on with these jeans, and getting over my fear of contrasting topstitching. You can see I've been wearing them a lot already from the photographs - they are so handy for casual wear!

Closet Case Patterns Kalle Shirt

Closet Case Patterns Kalle Shirt pattern review for #sewmystyle2018

March's #sewmystyle2018 pattern is the Kalle shirt and shirt dress from Closet Case Patterns. I have to say I was really looking forward to this because I love their designs and know that there is always a lot of help and tutorials to match in case I get stuck. Although it was freezing at the start of March, I made a warm weather version, thinking of having something cool and casual for the summer. I'll also put it out there at the start that I'm really proud of how far my topstitching skills have come on - it's one of my favourite features on this make!
