An eye-catcher is a person or 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. Therefore I want to share these eye-catchers with you.
Follow below what caught my eye this week:
The Ralph Lauren skirt for Vogue (V1723)
Look at this stunning skirt made by Allison. This is so my style: a flared skirt with pockets. The pattern is a vintage—1987—Ralph Lauren for Vogue and only to find in thrift shops or on the secondhand market. But maybe I can draft it myself when my pattern draft skills grow?
The Nanöo Top
I told you before I have some striped knits in my fabric collection waiting to be sewed. So when I saw this striped Nanöo top I was immediately intrigued. I did not know Nanöo—an indie sewing pattern company—so I’m glad this beautiful make of Debora brought it to my attention. And Debora also happens to be a brilliant Flemish sewist.
For me, this was the winner of the Moneta Party! Look at this incredible fabric Judith picked for her Moneta. Again evidence that the right fabric choice can bring a pattern to a higher level.
Pdxsquared brought my attention to this blouse from Knip Mode. It probably is a very good pattern for using fabric leftovers because the pattern consists of several small pattern pieces. I am thinking even about a combination of fabrics. And Knip Mode is a Dutch—my mother tongue—sewing magazine so reading the instructions should be easy!
The Trapeze Button Front Dress from Taco Inou
What a fascinating dress Taco Inou designed. I am really into this concept of wearing it above trousers and would love to sew one for myself.
