Woohooo – it’s time for this month’s Sew Our Stash update!
If this is your first time visiting, here’s what Sew Our Stash is all about! Marissa from Rae Gun Ramblings and I made a goal last summer to do more sewing for ourselves – and to use up our stash! So every month we show off what we’ve made. We’d love to have you play along too! You can check out the hashtag #sewourstash on Instagram and we’d love for you to post your photos too!
Last month I shared a roundup of dresses that I want to make – and wouldn’t you know it this month’s dress isn’t even on the list!
I just fell in love with See Kate Sew’s new Penelope Peplum and I had to make it up this month.
It was foggy on picture day. So we have a cool spooky vibe going. Nice.
The Penelope Pattern was originally just the top pattern but Kate just released an add on for the pattern that includes a gathered and circle skirt versions. I knew that I wanted to make the dress version and I’d planned on the gathered skirt until I saw Adriana’s pleated version. Well that sealed the deal for me.
I think Adrianna’s shorter length is really cute. I might trim off an inch or two from mine. But I love the pleats at the waist – and this knit is perfect and holds the shape really well.
Since the dress was pretty plain, I wanted to add something a little fun so I sewed little x’s at the shoulders. Just for something fun. The added bonus is that they totally hold the facing in place. Boom.
The dress is suuuuuper comfortable and I can’t wait to make up the top version. And maybe the circle skirt too. I don’t know. I really love these pleats.
This isn’t a sewing project, but I wanted to show off the scarf I made this month too. (Apparently I’m in a gray sort of phase.)
This pattern is crazy fast and it is super easy too. Here’s the link to the pattern. I already have a mustard gold one started – I think I might trim that one in a pretty cream or something. Maybe.
So what have you been sewing? Leave a link in the comments so we can all check it out!
And don’t forget to head over to visit Marissa and see what she sewed for her adorable pregnant self this month!!
