You have busy sewing these past several months and we wanted to highlight some your creations here today. You’ll find lots of examples to inspire your creativity and to help keep your sewing fresh. Isn’t if fun seeing the fabric other people select for sewing different patterns?
Let’s start out with Rachel’s first Oliver + S creation. She’s an heirloom sewer and smocker at heart. She wanted to try to add smocking to the Hide-and-Seek dress, which was an experiment, with fabric she had left over from another project. The smocking is gorgeous and very well done. For more smocking inspiration, be sure to check out our Smocked Dress Round-up and our Smocked Pocket tutorial.
Here’s another Hide-and-Seek creation, but this time a tunic version. Janice made this first day of school outfit for her daughter. Do you have a tradition of sewing a new outfit for the first day of school?
I love the simplicity of this Ruffled Halter without ruffles sewn by Kerstin. She also made this Explorer Vest and Reversible Bucket Hat. Don’t forget that we have a Reversible Bucket Hat Tutorial to help you and an Explorer Vest Round-up to offer more inspiration.
Constanca took a thrifted tablecloth and turned it into a beach caftan. She followed Liesl’s Linen Caftan class on Creativebug. You can find all of Liesl’s project-based workshops on Creativebug right in one spot.
