Helen's Closet Wednesday Weekly

Welcome to March, folks!  It’s the first Wednesday weekly of the month and I am feeling the open arms of Spring in a big way 🙂  Maybe it’s the new issue of Seamwork, or the crocuses outside my door but it definitely feels like winter is drawing to a close in my neck of the woods.

News

Hey June re-released the Lane Raglan shirt with options for a curved hemline, elbow length sleeves, 3/4 length sleeves, and long hemmed sleeves with no band. This is in addition to the hood and thumbhole wristbands that were added last year – now that is a versatile pattern!

Thread Theory is now carrying Otter Wax, an ideal treatment for natural leather.

Papercut Patterns released the Ahoy Collection, a nautical inspired pattern collection with three dresses, one sweater, and one pair of jeans.

The new issue of Seamwork Magazine is out!  Both patterns in this collection are making me swoon – the Catarina Dress and the Kenedy Dress.

Makes

The Indie Sew Spring collection tour is in full swing, I am loving the makes so far from Dandelion Drift, Sew DIY, Sew Bon and Sew Marie Fleur.

The Dropje vest has been on my list for too long, check out this version from Michelle.

Camille’s raspberry Belladone dress is stunning.

I adore this simple camisole hack from Caroline.

Charlie’s feather leggings are perfection, even if she is on the fence on this style.

The Wedgwood Skirt tester roundup from Straight Stitch Designs features amazing makers.

Sarah’s silk maxi dress is dripping luxury – I want!

I love the colour of Julie’s Waver jacket – it is just what I want for mine!
