Hello dear makers!  I hope everybody’s holiday season is in full swing and you are getting a chance to wear all those party frocks you’ve been sewing up over the last few months!  It’s fun to admire all the pretty sewing happening during the holidays, and get inspiration for the new year.

Makes

Mariah’s Clare Coat turned out beautifully and it was the push I needed to get mine finished this evening!  I love the color she chose and her pattern reviews are always very thorough and honest.

This Isla Trench coat from Julie is seriously awesome.  I need a spy jacket, right?  For spying!

I am having a love affair with the color purple at the moment and this Debbie’s skater dress is making me super jealous, I love that print!

This self drafted workout top from Petite Main Sauvage is really cool!  Check out the arrow design on the back, perfect for climbing 😛

I love this simple yellow skirt from Tea.  The style is perfect for any season and the color is so cheerful.

Sara’s new Mingo & Grace dress is simply divine. I love the print, style, and shape of this dress, all together a home run.

 

Resources

Some great tips for sewing with metal zippers over on Sew Can She this week.

 

Inspiration

As always, I’m a little slow to find things sometimes, but if you missed this one too, you’ve gotta check it out!  It’s the documentary about Iris Apfel, a truly amazing woman with a unique and inspiring sense of style.
