Did You Miss April Club?

Just in case you stayed home for the blizzard and couldn’t make it to another meeting-here’s a recap of the garments featured by Debbie, Katie and Kristin. The Club sheets are available under the menu heading “Club Sheet/Garment Photos” if you’d like more details.

Burda 6334

Debbie wanted a casual jacket but not another jean jacket. Loved this one from Burda in a stretch olive brown denim.

McCalls 6964, modified

Tie tees are everywhere. Debbie hacked her favorite tee pattern to make this version.

Butterick 6085

A little gold and a casual shirt plus she used Louise Cutting’s one seam collar technique to make a crisp (and narrower/current) collar.

Butterick 6628

A rayon knit is great in this ruched tee.

Pamela’s Patterns Twin Set Jacket Pattern
Simplicity 8386 Shell
Simplicity 8745 Skirt

Katie works her embellishment magic to add a pleather placket and grommets to what would have been just another knit jacket.

Simplicity 8594

Great summer sun dress in rayon batik.

Angela Wolf Ruched Tee
Simplicity 8745 Skirt

A great outfit with fun seam details in the skirt.

Wiksten Haori Jacket
Lining and bias binding on front band

Double weave gauze (?) from where or when we don’t know, but it was the perfect fabric in Kristin’s stash to pair with a brocade-like lining to make the narrow sleeved kimono from Wiksten.

Burda 6367
Jalie Eleonore Pull On Jeans

Add an activewear knit top and Jalie jeans and you’ve got an outfit! Sign up with Treadle to take the Jalie jeans class if you haven’t made these fantastic pants!

New Look 6434

Use the border of an embroidered chambray at the neck instead of hem for a different look to the quintessential (for now) ruffled sleeve. We’re offering this class during May and June at Joann.

We’re betting on good weather (or at least no snow) for our May meetings so hopefully you’ll be able to come and enjoy the inspiration in person!

Sew Expo-Puyallup

The beginning of March was gloriously spent at the Sew Expo in Puyallup, WA. It was a fantastic trip-filled with lots of sewing, family and friends. Here are a few snapshots from the event. Enjoy!
