Soho Maxi - Tester Call

October 19, 2014

The Soho Maxi Pattern is almost ready for testing! I'm looking for several testers that will be able to help me test this next week.

Testing will begin Thursday, October 23rd and run through Wednesday, October 29th.

The Soho Maxi will be available in sizes 2T-14yrs. It will also include instructions to make a knee length version. I hope you all adore this dress as much as I do! I am oh so in love with it...that back gets me every time! This dress was made for Andover Fabrics' quilt market booth and Harbor was so sad to see it get mailed off a few days ago. I will definitely be placing an order for more Handcrafted by Alison Glass to make her another one!

I'm looking for all sewing levels, some that have tested for me previously and others that are new to my patterns. If you are interested in joining our little testing party and would be able to complete the dress and feedback between October 23rd-29th, then go ahead and submit the form at the end of the post. You will receive an email in the next day or so if you are chosen to test.

Sew Americana Blog Tour
Sew Americana Blog Tour

June 25, 2019

Independence Day is right around the corner, and so with it comes Wild + Wanderful's Sew Americana Blog Tour!  I follow this tour every year, so I'm really excited to be participating in it for the first time.

Nothing says "summer sewing" over here at SSD quite like the Emerie Romper, and wheI think Americana, I think of the peace and love, tie-dye vibe of the 70s. As it turns out, I happen to be a big lover of dying things.

Daybreak - Swimsuit Hack
Daybreak - Swimsuit Hack

May 21, 2019

Soon after the Daybreak release there was an inspiration post made in the Striped Swallow Designs' facebook group of a tankini swimsuit that looked very similar to the Daybreak for the top. My daughter had a school field trip coming up to the waterpark the following week and I knew it would be perfect so I set out on making one the next day. (The photo on the right is from Swimfully.) I used the Into the Blue for my bottoms -- no mods, just skip adding the top of the ITB and they make super cute swimsuit bottoms.
