See what our talented sewists were inspired to make!
NEW BASE: RAYON CHALLIS
Rayon Challis is a lightweight woven material perfect for dresses, tops, kimonos.
Kendel made this Greenstyle Creations Havana Dress from the Joplin Rayon Challis! I love how the same fabric and same pattern can look so different to match our different personalities! Love this look, Kendel!
Speaking of the Fallon Rayon Challis, Sarah made the Lyric Dress by Love Notions with this fabric. She plans to wear it to a wedding this summer. I love this dress! She can dress it up or down with shoes and jewelry, but it's fancy but comfortable!
If you've gotten to know Sarah at all lately, you may have noticed that she usually leans towards the athletic makes. Rayon Challis can do that too! She made the Bella Sunshine Tulip Shorts from the Waverly Rayon Challis.
Kelle made a Songbird dress by Striped Swallow using the Leona Rayon Challis. This dress is so sweet! Rayon Challis lends itself to ruffles, gathers and trim so well!
HOW ABOUT A SURPRISE?
On the Facebook Live reveal Mya surprised us with Inspired Bundles! These bundles have 4.5 yards of fabric - they're perfect for making a color blocked top with circlular knit leggings. Circular Knit makes the best leggings! The color block top that originally inspired this bundle is the Ellie and Mac Autumn Spice.
The bundle comes in three colors: Mint, Light Blue and Blush.
Surprising fact: Laura hadn't sewn leggings for herself! But the circular knit has won her over!
Another take on blush! Kayleigh colorblocked the Green Tee by Greenstyle! This bundle comes with 1 yard of each of the three top fabrics and 1.5 yards of the circular knit, which means there are so many ways you can put the fabrics together!
Gwen was inspired to add colorblocking to the 5oo4 Nancy Raglan. I love the strip of white to accent the raglan seams! What a clever way to put these fabrics together!
Gwen opted for the mint bundle with charcoal circular knit. You can choose charcoal or black circular knit with the bundle, just indicate your selection in the notes. If you don't have a preference, we'll choose for you!
Jess also used the Ellie and Mac Autumn Spice pattern. She used the light blue bundle. I think this might be my favorite color, but I love them all! Which color do you like best?
The stocking isn't over yet!
These two, I just can't get over this photo! So perfect!
More cuteness! This photo is almost too much cute!
