What are your plans for the weekend? After our buying trip in LA, I am fired up to get my sewing room organized and ready for Spring sewing. The warmer weather is also a great reminder that it’s time to make up a few batches of basic tees and tanks.
My name is Rachel. I’m an apparel sewist, sewing blogger, and the host of the Maker Style Podcast – it’s lovely to meet you all!
Today I’m teaming up with Hart’s Fabric to share my version of the Closet Case Ebony Dress made with a cotton-spandex from Art Gallery’s Sage Collection. Both the pattern and fabric were sent to me at the beginning of the month, and here’s what I came up with!
After looking at some of the new trends for Spring that showed up on runways, and in stores, we are seeing lots of wearable, and easy to sew options. We can’t wait to introduce you to more options as they arrive.
So we want to know, what would you like to see more of? What are your favorite parts? We want to share things we are loving while still making sure they are things you are loving it too!
Have a wonderful weekend!
Looking to unwind from the stress of the weekend? Try this.
And this…it smells like pineapples!
This cheerful quilt would be beautiful hanging on a wall or featured on a bed.
Mmm weekend plans…
It finally feels like Spring might be nearing closer. The sun has been out for the past few days and we just got in a huge shipment of warm weather patterns from Named and Papercut. Have you started planning your Spring sewing? If so, what is on your project queue?
Named Patterns just released its new Spring/Summer collection called Playground and we are super excited to introduce you to it! It is filled with wearable basics perfect for transitioning into warmer weather. We already picked out our favorites, so now we want to know, what’s your favorite pattern?
Another week, another pattern shipment! All our new patterns have us in a bit of a sewing frenzy around here. Many of us will be spending the weekend sewing up some new store samples, while others will be testing out the lovely new selection of Named and Papercut patterns for fun. We might even be sewing up some surprises for Monday!
Enough about us…On to your weekly links!

Santa Cruz is having its fair share of dreary grey days this winter similar to much of the nation. While it’s easy to let this get us down, it’s nice to find beauty in the weather and enjoy it. Walks along the stormy sea and views of fog rolling over the hills are helping to keep our spirits in check. This weekend, we’ll be taking our own self-care tip and sleeping in!
