If you asked me to describe myself, I would tell you that I am a quilter. Yes, I make a bag here and a scarf there, but quilting is my true love. I have always admired the sewists on Instagram that are making their own clothing, so I am taking the leap and trying my hand at Colette’s Dahlia dress.
I was super excited to see that Colette announced last week that they are launching an online digital magazine called Seamwork.
The idea is simple. Each month, we’ll bring you two downloadable patterns that are quick to make, useful, and truly fun. Plus, you’ll get in-depth articles that will help teach you new techniques, or just inspire you to try something new. – Seamwork
The best part about the magazine is that it will feature patterns that can be sewn up in about three hours, I love projects like that. I am hoping to expand my handmade wardrobe so I am looking forward to seeing what they publish. If you are interested, you can sign up for their behind the scenes preview here.
Back to Dahlia:
Dahlia has a gorgeous silhouette and the mid-length sleeve version will be perfect for the office. I selected this lovely Small Black Check from Jennifer Sampou’s Studio Stash Yarn Dyes 2014.
If this works out, I am eyeing the same print in red!
My goal is to have it finished by the Sunday after Thanksgiving, but hopefully before. What selfish sewing do you have planned this month?
