Hi, Makers! Apologies for the late Wednesday Weekly, I was away on a little work retreat for the last few days so I am playing catch up on blog-related things. We had a great stay on Saltspring island here in BC. Check out this video I shot at the top of the mountain we climbed yesterday! I am so blessed to live in the Pacific North West, is is just such a gorgeous place. I hope you are all having a great week, too! Let’s dive into what is happening in the indie sewing world, shall we?

I want to steal this cozy Toaster Sweater from Frolein Tilia.

This plaid tunic dress from Tea Okereke is amazing.

How cool is this dropped-shouldered bomber from Sweet Shard?

Speaking of cool jackets, this moto-jacket from Sewionista is awesome.

I love this classic denim skirt from Attack of the Seam Ripper.

This retro sleeve Moneta from Au Fil des Pages is gorgeous!

I am so into this plaid jacket from Beute J’adore.

Sake Jane’s latest backless dress is simply stunning.

Some seriously sweet PJ’s from Bobbin and Baste.

This red raincoat from The Sewing Goatherd is fab.
