This week in sewing blogs vol. 105 // Closet Case Files

Happy weekend makers! I’ve been working my tail off all week and snuck off to Vermont for a short weekend at my friend’s farmhouse where we are indulging in shibori madness (when I’m not stealing apples off their tree or chasing Harry through a meadow). I’m excited to come back with lots of hand dyed yardage, since I purchased raw linen, silk and jersey to play around with. Hopefully your weekend is turning out to be equally creative.

Here’s what you’ve been up to…

 ADMIRE

Hands down the biggest thrill I got this week was slowly realizing that the gorgeous jeans refashion by Sue of A Colourful Canvas was done using my Clare Coat pattern! Immediately added a Clare dress to my fall sewing queue…

Actually, maybe the biggest thrill was seeing this INCREDIBLE bustier prom dress Sew Nip Tuck made for her daughter using the Sophie swimsuit as a base.

More refashioning goodness – great guts in this dress from Helen’s Closet.

Natural dying is such a huge trend this year – isn’t this light as air Scout tee from the Grainline gang pretty?

How much do you love this chartreuse draped dress from Sew Pomona?

If this checkered coat by the Mahogany Stylist isn’t Fabulous with a  capital F, I don’t know what fabulous means at all.

Leopard goodness from Allie J.

I was really loving all of Clio & Phineas’ Ogden tabks…. and then I saw the awesome maxi dress hack she did with the pattern.

Love these Morgan jeans for Tasha’s partner Mel.

READ

I enjoyed reading Liesl’s journey to pattern designer over on the Oliver & S blog.

I always kind of liked Gwyneth Paltrow even when the entire internet was attacking her and this interview just confirms why.

LISTEN

If Mazzy Star had a baby with Fleetwood Mac (I saw her on Friday and basically jumped up and down in delight the entire time).

  • Hey Heather, the first link to Sue’s dress goes to the leopard dress and top, just FYI 🙂

  • Thanks for the shout out, Heather! <3<3<3

  • I’m plotting another Clare Dress as I type!!!

  • Great links, thank you again! I really enjoyed the articles about Liesl and Gwyneth, they gave me much to think about.

  • Francesca Amodeo

    Great links yet again, thanks! But I only come here for the king Charles porn, and man, am I satisfied today:)….. he just gets more and more adorable….

  • Thanks! So crazy how a UFO can be reinvented.

    Ginger + Ogden is going to be my new fall uniform. Seriously perfect together.
