“I find myself reaching for the for simple things again and again,” says Jenny Gordy of Wiksten in her interview in the latest Stitch with Style magazine. I completely concur and that is just why I purchased her downloadable Wiksten tank pattern and have been cranking them out ever since.
This article by Stitch is a lovely one. It is sweet and peaceful, just like I imagine her to be. Jenny talks of her journey with Wiksten and some about her life. We have a few copies at the shop if you are the magazine buyer type.
And here’s some eye candy for you. A few Wiksten tanks I’ve sewn, now a staple in my wardrobe. The inside is finished with French seams which is very clean and professional and the hemline is a classic shirt tail.
Our neighbor brought us flowers this morning and it made me think to sew a spring dress. Ha. Funny how many of my thoughts lead me to some sewing project that I must add to my list (of things to sew). Around here spring means sew a spring dress.
Knit or stretch woven suggested. Would be lovely in Liberty of London or cotton/silk.
Would be lovely in linen in my opinion.
I imagine this in one of the Free Spirit voiles that just arrived yesterday. I’m in love with the seafoam.
This one is for those of you who love all things sewn in knit.
See you soon!
I am very excited to introduce the newest dress shop on Alberta street, Amelia. The shop displays handmade dresses by owner and designer Amelia Blakemen. She has a sweet collection of all of her other favorite things including bags by Lemolo which I am very excited about! Amelia has done an incredible job representing herself with the space. Her workspace is just upstairs which is where she designs and sews. Next time you’re visiting us at Bolt, take a walk a few doors down and see what Amelia is up to. We are thrilled to have her as our new neighbor.
