Week in the Sewing Life No. 9

This week has been a tease with some seriously gorgeous spring weather, and now we are about to get whomped (that’s the word the weather man actually used) with a good amount of snow. I have a few easy projects cut out and am hoping to dive into a more complicated make while we’re cozied up indoors.

Thank you for all the kind comments on my winter module! I’ve had fun mixing these pieces into my wardrobe and I’ve had a lot of fun this week getting dressed and continuing to play along with the Sew Happy Color challenge over on instagram. It was yellow week- my favorite!- and it made me happy each morning figuring out what I wanted to wear.

This was mentioned at the beginning of the month, but Canva has a very cool color wheel tool that you can use to play around with new color combinations if you’re looking for ways to get inspired and play along with the challenge.

I thought this was a helpful article on how to buy yarn online. Fabric can still be a challenge even after years of sewing so yarn is absolutely intimidating to me!

This is an adorable free pattern for little girls and I’ve seen a few people make it up as an actual dress. I might save it for Harper for the summer.

I loved this round up of the 2021 Costume Designers Guild Award Nominations. I’ve been watching Bridgerton and costumes and sets are so beautiful and definitely help tell the story. I love costumes and the stories behind how they get made.

I hope you have a warm and cozy weekend wherever you are!
