May Club saw many of us sewing for warmer weather. Above, Katie used a simple pattern, the Jalie Dolman Top/Dress with a bit of fussy cutting to make a knit dress that can go many places.
Debbie is ready for sun in her linen version of Simplicity 8640. She swapped out the patch pockets and added inseam pockets instead.
Sew Chic was at the Puyallup show and caught Katie’s attention-this is the Gatsby Pant and Portrait Blouse. Score!
Kristin had fun mixing patterns with the Harriet Jacket from StyleArc in a scuba knit and Burda 6434 in a vintage silk print. The skirt is Simplicity 2058 in an activewear knit. Perfectly packable!
All of the above patterns and more are reviewed under the “Club Sheets and Garment Photos” heading in the menu bar. Our next meetings will be June 8 and 11 at Treadle Yard Goods and June 13 at SR Harris, Burnsville.

The Saturday Fashion Sewing Club meeting at Treadle was over the top for a second month in a row! We were joined by five women from South Dakota who were in search of wool for making garments for the Make It With Wool contest. They strongly encourage anyone to enter.

We’ll be at Treadle Tuesday morning and evening-will you??
That’s right-final Fashion Sewing Club for April at SR Harris in Burnsville. Today, Thursday at 10:30 am.
Like most normal people expecting spring weather, we sewed for spring! Who knew we’d be cancelling a meeting on Saturday because of a super snowstorm? But the weather man said sixty next week so we keep hoping.
We also hope you can join us this morning if you haven’t yet this month. Bring your spring dream clothes to show and we’ll have ours.
We continue to appreciate all of you that attend Fashion Sewing Club. All three of them have loyal followers and new attendees. It’s so energizing!
I wanted to pass on a link to an organization that Treadle worked with for Grand Old Days-Sew Good Goods. They donate handmade high quality items to people that need them-you can cut, sew, donate, have a party. I’m checking to see if they would be interested in any scraps that any of us might have as they use Treadle fabric.
The photos and Club sheets have been posted under Club Sheets and Garment Photos above. Here is a sampling of what you showed us in June-

April was a good sewing month for some-lots to see. Fashion Sewing Club photos and sewing notes can be found by clicking here or on Club Sheets/Garment Photos above.
Below is Karen’s ensemble-the tunic is ready-to-wear by Gudrun Sjoden. I’ve watched her clothing for some time. It’s full of color and pattern but not something I’d expect to see on the street here in the metro area. One of the dilemmas on my mind was to reinterpret the look into something I could wear. Karen has solved the problem by choosing just one piece and matching it with a solid pant and sweater. Now which piece will I order???
We hope you’ve been inspired or helped you remember what you may have seen at Fashion Sewing Club in April. The next Club meetings are:
Thursday, June 9, 6:30 pm at First Sewing Bloomington
Saturday, June 11, 10:30, @ Treadle
Tuesday, June 14, 10:30 @ Treadle
