Pajamas by Jenny Fish, Sew Pretty Dresses
Jenny made these new pajamas for her daughter using New Look pattern #6746 and Jennifer Paganelli fabric. Jenny writes, “It doesn’t take long for a reader of my blog to see that I am a big Jennifer Paganelli/Sisboom fan. I love the intense color and beauty of her fabrics as well as Jennifer’s giant generous heart. I am also a tester for Carla Hegeman Crim who designs sewing patterns for both Sisboom and Scientific Seamstress… I have a passion for sewing and I have a desire to pass that passion along to anyone who is interested in learning to sew or furthering their skills. In an effort to share my enthusiasm I work with local and online shops writing tutorials, sewing samples and contributing to sewing blogs.”

DIY Drawstring Coin Purse by Pascale, // Between the lines //

Amanda writes, “I made the top from a vintage bed sheet using the shift dress pattern from Built By Wendy Dresses. I modified the original pattern by cutting off the bodice right below the bust darts, then gathered a long rectangle (using the original hem on the sheet, because I hate hemming!) for the skirt and stitched it into the bodice. The neckline is finished with self-made bias tape, and the sleeves are finished with fold-over elastic to give them some gentle poof. I love this shape for a top because it’s totally forgiving– No clinging at the tummy or the booty. Plus, it’s something you can throw on and go, but still look fabulous.” Amanda has this top for sale in her shop.
Joules Orange by Daria, LaLa! Shoes
Daria is from Zagreb, Croatia, and is a trained industrial designer. She writes, “I worked for long years in advertising as an art director, but two years ago I returned to my passion– handcrafting. I design all the LaLa! Shoes and LaLa! Monde patterns by myself, and I produce them all in my home studio… Most of my women’s house shoes are made as custom orders, all by measurements. I pester my customers with lots of measurements to take (I made an illustrated guide for that), and then adjust my basic patterns so to make a perfect fit. In the end it’s all worth it, as this is the way to get a great pair of shoes.” You can find Daria’s designs in her LaLa! Shoes shop. You can also find information on Daria’s works on Facebook: http://www.facebook.com/lalashoes + http://www.facebook.com/lalamonde.
Shirts by Anne, gretelies
Anne is from Germany and she writes, “The shirts are based on the Farbenmix pattern Antonia. I am sometimes creating designs for machine embroidery and pattern e-books. Primarily I am sewing bags, cushions, clothes for children and so on for my little business, which ensures the income for my little daughter and me.”
