Introducing ~ Amanda

on June 12 | in Contributors | by | with 23 Comments

You’re going to love Amanda’s newest pattern, coming up a bit later on the blog. It could very well be your next summer project! While you wait check out Amanda’s delightful shop, The Modern Marigold and the cheery companion Modern Marigold blog. Amanda’s sewing just says “Summer!” to us…

Hello! I’m Amanda of The Modern Marigold. I’m obsessed with vintage materials and love to scheme all day about what to make when my two little chickie pies go to bed at night. I love peonies in bloom and cows on the pasture. I love bread and sunshine and words like hyperbole. I *adore* my readers. Vintage/modern style is my happy place. I run The Modern Marigold on Etsy, where you’ll find pretty skirts, DIY bunting kits, and other bits and pieces, all made from vintage linens.

I always have (too many) new projects in the works, but the one I’m most excited about is finally here today on the SMS blog! The Pretty Blouse is my first pattern, and I’m holy-frijole-excited to share it with you. Let me know what you think– Thanks to sites like Pinterest, I’m hatching more ideas for patterns all the time, and look forward to creating a few more!

You can also find me on The Modern Marigold blog, Pinterest, and Flickr. Stop by soon!
