Sew it Chic in a Week #15

Light Chic

Another sewing week has flown by and no, you didn’t see any posts from me. That is simply because I was sewing too much to post anything! Blogging takes time, and all my extra time was spent at the sewing machine finishing up my PR Wardrobe for the contest. I almost missed the deadline, I was typing my reviews up until the last minute. Whew! It was a really fun challenge. My completed contest entry is here.

I believe voting begins the 18th, so when it does I encourage you to go take a look at all the lovely things people made! Since I was sew-sew-sewing up until the last minute, then collapsed into bed. I am looking forward to a giant cup of coffee today and carefully delighting in all the wardrobe combos people put together. Really brilliant stuff!

I contacted our most viewed seamstress from the previous link-up, but she has not replied yet. I do look forward to hearing her answers and I’ll post them if she gets back to me.

It was linked up to Sew it Chic a little later in the week so it has not received a ton of clicks, but it is amazing! I audibly gasped when I saw it.  She is a such a talented woman and this item is flawless!  The proportions and fit of her top are so much better than the original even!

So let’s just jump right into our link-up and see what you have been making!


Here are a few rules: 

  • Women’s garments only
  • Made or blogged in the past week only – to avoid reposts.
  • The party is open for a week, until next Friday, and I’ll open a new one Saturday. Feel free to link up every once in a while or try to complete a garment every week!
  • You don’t have to blog to join in! Link up your Pattern Review, your Kollabora project or even an Instagram pic. I know there are so many lovely things made that we never see because not everyone is crazy enough to blog. I also have one person who emails me the pictures so I can get them up here.

Optional additional ideas:

  • If you are on a blogging platform that supports links, please link back to by using the Sew it Chic in a Week button in the sidebar, or just a simple mention in the text of your post. That way more people will find the party!
  • Look around and share a comment or 2 with a neighbor. I don’t mind admitting that I savor blog comments as much as meeting a tight deadline. They are encouraging and build community.

  1. Hi Helena! Thanks sooo much for the shout out! That is really sweet of you! That colorblock top was fun and a bit stressful at the same time for me! I had to make sure I wasn’t making any mistakes while cutting and sewing because I was using scraps or leftover fabric!
    Thanks again! Keep up the good work!
