Sewaholic released FIVE new patterns this week, all designed for an active lifestyle.  I am so impressed with all of these designs, they really push the boundaries of home sewing and offer a challenge for even the most experienced sewers.  Although they are more detailed, with Tasia’s excellent instructions I’m sure beginners could tackle these makes too.  I am particularly taken with the Pacific leggings and the Dunbar top.  

Sewaholic Patterns



Is there anything cheerier than Gingham?  It always makes me smile, and Jane’s top is no exception.

I love Yetunde’s Peplum top, the silhouette it creates is superb from every angle.

How cool is Margo’s dress with those cut out details?  I would just look at that fabric on the bolt and be way too confused about how to use it for a project.  I love how she used it on the top and bottom, just enough to tie the whole garment together.

Tasha made the Kielo Wrap dress by Named Patterns.  I love how elegant this dress looks and the fabric choice is so pretty. 

Sew Busy Lizzy took a stab at the Sewaholic Nicola.  Although she says it isn’t her style, it does look lovely and I agree that is is odd this pattern has not received more interest.  It is sitting on my desk in front of me and I am very excited to make it soon!

Bella made two gorgeous Alder Shirtdresses, one of each version.  I love way the geometric shapes add visual interest on the purple one.

Heather made FOUR Laurel dresses, each one more adorable than the last! I think I really need to start making multiples of patterns and take the time to perfect the fit and style.  

Amy’s Sew Over It Vintage Shirtdress is so cute!  I love mustard and navy together, and add in that cat print?  Ahmazing. 

Rebecca’s Rouleau edged top is simply divine, I love how delicate it looks and how it draws the eye to the collarbone.



I went on a hunt for some new music this week, here are a few songs I am really excited about:
