Oh wow, you guys, what an amazing trip!! It is surreal to me that I am back home and that this trip is behind me. My husband and I had such an adventure and we loved every minute of it! Someday soon I will sit down and tell you more about it, but I need to build up the energy for that first! I’ll tell you this: there was much fabric shopping involved! Although I didn’t buy much (we only brough a backpack each for the entire trip), I certainly enjoyed exploring Europe’s fabric stores and seeing what was trendy over there. I took tons of pictures of the fabric stores and I can’t wait to share them with you! It is good to be back!
On another note, the Pattern Challenge is going strong with 32 official members on Flickr (and 75 photos of finished garments!). I thought it prudent to show you a sample of the amazing things we are making for this challenge!! I am continually impressed by the talent for garmet-making that I am seeing on this group! It has definitely given me tons of inspiration to get back to sewing now that I’m home. I’ve thoroughly enjoyed reading the pattern reviews and I have bookmarked several patterns that I want to try. So, without further ado, here is a sample of some of the things you can find on the Flickr Pattern Challenge Group. Enjoy!
Japanese Beginner Dress and Tunic Book #18 by Liesl Made. Pattern Review here.
Amy Butler’s Cabo Halter by Smiles of a Summer Night. Pattern Review here.
Alabama Stitchbook’s T-shirt Corset by And So I Sew. Pattern Review here.
So there you have it! Are you thoroughly inspired? I sure am! And this is just some of the action going on in our Flickr group, so check it out! It’s not too late the join in the fun! Just let me know if you’re interested in joining the challenge and see the instructions here, we’d love to have you!!
