What's Up Sew World Vol. 5

Hi sewing friends! I hope that you've wonderful weeks and are enjoying your weekend. Did you sew any costumes this year? I'm actually not that big on Halloween I do love to see how creative people get with their costumes. I have a ton of sewing projects in the works and I'm hoping to get a lot done this weekend. And maybe even a little knitting. I'm also really excited for #BPsewvember to start on Nov. 1. It was so much fun last year. I'm looking forward to doing it again. Read on to see what's been happening in the sew world the last couple of weeks.


Colette launched the Wren Dress, a knit dress with wrap front and sleeve options.

Pauline Alice released the Rosari Skirt Pattern. I love the button front and pocket options on this skirt. So cute and fun!

Grainline Studio released the Tamarak Jacket pattern

Butterick Patterns released their Winter/Holiday Collection. I'm most intrigued by B6295, a leggings/sports bra pattern by Lisette. Or if you're looking to do the whole adult-onesie thing for the holidays, check out B6298, a cute and comfy romper with optional hood.
