An eye-catcher is a person or a thing that attracts the attention
The online sewing community is very visual. So, every day I see heaps of sewing related images on social media and blogs. Some of them catch my eye because they make me think or they give me inspiration. Here, I want to share these eye-catchers with you.
Follow below what caught my eye recently.
Those who read my blog know already that I have a weak spot
made in African wax print. So this lovely version of B6453
—designed by Gertie—sewed by Michelle for her daughter Mori, immediately got my attention.So far I only sewed two garments
for me in African wax but I have some more fabric in my collection waiting. I bought the pattern already!
When you have a lot of African was print you have a lot of scraps. Tryntsje
used them to make a pleated skirt. She stitched the pleats inside to keep them a little hidden. Such an inspiring idea.
The dress in Alexander Henry fabric
Not only clothes in African Wax get my attention but in fact any extraordinary design catches my eye. Look at this amazing Alexander Henry fabric. Sarah from the Wanderstitch
used it to sew this stunning summer dress, designed by Gertie as well: the B6094
The vintage 1930’s McCall’s dress
I don’t have any white garment but this elegant dress of Julie, @csewchicasewww
gave me some ideas.
The little black dress from Amalie
Neither do I have a (little) black dress. Again was I intrigued by this graceful one made by Amalie
. She designed the pattern herself.
