What's Up Sew World Vol 8

Clockwise from top left: Kenedy Dress from Seamwork  //  Nicole Jacket from Republique du Chiffon  //  Moana Dress and Starboard Jeans from Papercut  //  Wedgewood Skirt from Straight Stitch Designs

It's been another busy few weeks. In addition to working full time, I've sent my new pattern out for testing (there are a lot of amazeballs tester photos on instagram #nitawrapskirt), adopted a kitten, done the Indiesew blog tour (here and here), joined MIY March and I'm sewing every chance I can get. Phew! The kitten is definitely the biggest life change. I never would have classified myself as a cat person but this little guy is so adorable and fun. I'm totally in love with him, even when he's waking me up at 5am to play or jumping into my photos. I also applied to be a Bernina Ambassador over on Kollabora. I'd super appreciate it if you vote for me by liking my project. (thank you in advance!)



Republique du Chiffon release the Nicole Jacket. It's currently available in French and English translation is in progress.

I love this vintage Simplicity reprint for a three armhole dress. Check it out. Simplicity 8049

Sew Over It released the Susie Blouse pattern

Tilly and The Buttons released the Dominique skirt, a super simple gathered waist in two design styles. 

Straight Stitch Designs released the Wedgewood Skirt. It's a classic pleated skirt with exposed back zip and super cool pockets.

Papercut Patterns released a new collection called Ahoy!. I really love this outfit combo of Moana Top and Starboard Jeans.

Tessuti released the Jane Dress pattern. It's a lovely basic shape with a super cool side seam vent, just the kind of dress that I imagine being worn over and over.

There's a new issue of Seamwork Magazine out and it has two beautiful dress patterns, the Catarina and the Kenedy.

From Style Arc I'm loving the Mila Dress and the Beth Pant (because duh.). 



This giant bobble sheep pillow by Purl Soho is ridiculously cute and free!

Wendy Ward is hosting MIY March on Instagram. I've been joining along and I love the daily challenge/inspiration. Plus it's a great way to meet more online sewists.

Also from Wendy Ward, some basics on bias.

I love these DIY fabric coasters from Passion Shake and it has me thinking about making weavings into coasters.
