Sewing Inspiration | SS 2018

Tuesday, August 21, 2018
Sorry for the long break! Unlike July when I had time to write and sew more, lately I've been busy writing exams and preparing for university... and *sigh* there is just sooo much to do!
But I was able to make time to write a post I've been wanting to write for a while. So here we go!
Don't you love Pinterest? I sure do! When I'm feeling stuck and have no idea on what to sew or knit, I just search and find so many ideas.
Through Pinterest, I have also found some great sewing blogs to follow. Lately, I have been stuck on what to sew and so I (like always) browsed through Pinterest to see what the trends are, what would look good on me and what new skills I can acquire.
These are 5 of the things I've found and I'm interested in sewing!
DIY cami top with tie sleeves in cute linen lemon pattern. Perfect little piece to wear on a picnic date or girls lunch. Follow the steps in this tutorial by The Essentials Club to make it yourself.
I saw this and loved the lemon fabric! This would be a very easy make and it's so cute. This tutorial is from The Essentials Club and the author has some good tutorials. I love how clear and minimalistic her blog is.
Sew your way to 80s vibes with Lysa Flower's patchwork cassette purses.
As soon as I saw this I thought of my 80s outfit that I made last week! This would make such a perfect gift to both a child and their parent. Unfortunately, it's only available in the Molly Makes magazine which I can't buy here in Canada *sigh* In the mag they also have a pattern to make a toucan key chain.
Pleated Fit and Flare Dress women fashion sewing tutorial
Through Pinterest, I found one of my favorite sewist Merricks Art. I love how creative she is and she also makes some great very detailed tutorials. This tutorial I have been eyeing for a while as it'd be perfect for church or a semi-formal event.
I saw this and I couldn't believe that that jacket had become an overall dress. How! This would be really cool for all of those old/ill-fitting jackets around that you don't want to throw away. I love her tutorials since she makes YouTube videos so I can sew along with her.
V9299 | Vogue Patterns | Sewing Patterns
How cute is this dress!! The sleeves, the belt *sigh* I need this in my closet even if I never wear it. I am honestly not a big fan of the frilly/big sleeves (they're everywhere!) but here they look cute and chic. This is Vogue 9299 and oh so cute!
This bag was a big inspiration and part of why I decided to make my Convertible Backpack. The Blue Calla bag turns from backpack to tote and has a very interesting design. I like how there are various pictures on the finished project so you can see how it`ll look like and color combos.

So these are some of my sewing inspiration for the last couple of weeks. I hope you enjoyed this post and I'm glad about sharing this with you. Have you heard of any of these sewing bloggers before? I know that once I find a blogger I like will look at all their tutorials and follow them everywhere!
