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.
Debbie wanted a casual jacket but not another jean jacket. Loved this one from Burda in a stretch olive brown denim.
Tie tees are everywhere. Debbie hacked her favorite tee pattern to make this version.
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.
A rayon knit is great in this ruched tee.
Katie works her embellishment magic to add a pleather placket and grommets to what would have been just another knit jacket.
Great summer sun dress in rayon batik.
A great outfit with fun seam details in the skirt.
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.
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!
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!
FSC kicks off this Saturday, Mar. 9th at Treadle! Come out and get your sewing fix and tons of inspiration. And our Outside the Big 4 Box class (all about indie patterns and how to work with them) will be held from 1-3 pm after Club meeting.
Here’s some inspiration from last month’s attendees. Enjoy!
