We’re already deep into September, and I’m still adjusting from summer vacations! How are you doing?
It’s been a long time since my last Weekend Links post, so I’m popping in with a very quick one because I’ve been saving things for you. I know some of you really love these posts, and I try to do them regularly, but sometimes life just gets in the way.
I sewed our Lisette for Butterick B6901 vest for myself, and then a certain 17-year-old stole it from me. So I may need to make another. (I can already tell I’m going to have to keep a close eye on my closet when she packs for college next year….) Here’s a little vest inspiration for your Friday.
- I’ve always loved Jean-Luc Godard’s films for a variety of reasons, and with his recent passing this article about how his aesthetic serves as fashion inspiration was a nice reminder of one reason why.
- Did you see Lyndsey’s very cool tutorial on making digital inspiration boards the other day?
- Could learning about sewing change how people shop? Learning how clothes are made has a ‘transformative’ effect on people’s relationship with fast fashion.
- Could this be true? “For the first time in history, we’re rejecting the heel as a symbol of gender or class.” I’d love to see the Shoes: Anatomy, Identity, Magic exhibit at FIT!
- And as long as we’re in New York, how about the Kimono Style exhibit at the Met? Looks amazing!
- This made me laugh, especially since I like to run in Casa de Campo, the palace’s old hunting grounds now turned into a lovely park, in the mornings. Occasionally I pass the flock of sheep who live there. Now I’ll be dreaming of them following me home!
- And hey, as long as we’re on Twitter, I think I’d like to wear this dress tomorrow.
I hope you have a great weekend. I’ll be sewing a few of our upcoming patterns. What are you making?
