Hey y’all. I have a fun giveaway for you today! Loves Sewing specializes in out-of-print and vintage patterns and they would like to give one winner 3 patterns of their choice. To enter, visit their website or Etsy page (they have different stock on each) and tell us what pattern(s) catch your eye in the Rafflecopter box below (bonus entries if you follow Closet Case files on Facebook, or Twitter, but it’s not mandatory!) Please note that if your choices have sold out by the time of the giveaway, you’ll have to choose again.
Happy Canada Day to my fellow Canucks and Happy Hump Day to the rest of you! Just a quick post to let you know that the new issue of Seamwork Magazine is out and it features another article I wrote about fabric, this time on understanding and working with denim. It’s a nice companion piece to the one I wrote earlier this year on the fabric industry for home sewists. It was also a good excuse to nerd out about this magic textile even more than I have already have. Let me know what you think!
One of the nice things about the Sallie Jumpsuit & Maxi dress pattern is that it works with a wide variety of light to medium weight knits. As long as it has a nice drape and a decent amount of crosswise stretch, you should be good to go. Here are some pretty options from around the interweb.
