If you have not been following Frances Suzanne: sewing with sisters , you are in for a treat! They create the most intricate yet classic frocks for their darling nieces. Beautiful smocking, piping, pin tucks, piecing, and hand embroidery take their beautiful creations to the next level.
Together they have been hosting a year long sewing series Flip this Pattern. It is a fun collaborative to include indie pattern makers and regular ole’ bloggers like myself to test our creativity with already awesome patterns.
This month the Chickadee Blouse and Skirt pattern is being featured. I am CRAZY for the off centered peter pan collar. Crazy may not be strong enough — more like obsessed.
Head over to Frances Suzanne to see the most amazing submission by Janice from So-Cal Sewing Mom. You will be blown away! Make sure to head to her site too. Not only will you love her fabric store, but you must read her beautiful foster/adopt story. Just bring Kleenex.
I had the privilege of taking this darling pattern and giving it a bit of a twist.
So, in the name of connection and community, I share my “flip”. Come on over for more.
