Yay, we made it through another work week! It’s been wretchedly hot here in NYC, giving us a good excuse to stay inside with our two favorite devices: the air conditioner and the sewing machine. Is it wrong to worship them?!
Sewalongs: We’ve been thinking about what to sew for the next sewalong. So far we’ve done a Ralph Rucci coat and a wrap dress. We like the idea of doing something a little harder in the fall and then something easier in the spring. One suggestion we’ve gotten so far for the next sewalong is the new Anne Klein pea coat pattern. What do you think about that? Other suggestions for a pattern to sew together? We’d love to hear your thoughts before we make a decision.
Coming soon: We’re doing post-production work on our fall collection video starring Carlos and Karen, and it should be ready soon. You’ll definitely get ideas for your fall and winter sewing from it.
Have you seen the new sewing meme on Instagram? It’s called the “Sew Photo Hop” and it was created by Rachel of House of Pinheiro. Each day in August has a specific theme, like “Hello, Introduce Yourself” for August 1, and you post your own photo on your Instagram account that addresses the theme, tagging it with #sewphotohop. This is a great way to get to know your fellow sewists a little better. We’re going to try to play along and hope you do too.
Have a great weekend with lots of sewing! Back next week with more to chat about, we promise.
