i’m always curious how people learned to sew. after my mom got me started, i credit the majority of my sewing education to oliver + s patterns!
the lovely and talented maryanne and caroline of sew together invited me to participate in their “best friend” series, where lots of great bloggers have been sharing their best friends in the sewing world. it’s been a fun series to follow along with and today, i’m up!
for my guest post i ended up writing a 3 year retrospective (with lots of PRE-BLOG FLICKR ONLY projects included)! it was fun making photo collages of pretty much every oliver + s garment i’ve ever sewn – and believe me, there are quite a few!
head on over to sew together to check out my post!
side note: i discovered sew together during season 4 of project run & play; they make gorgeously crafted, classic clothing and i was always so impressed with their work during the season (especially their blue twirly dress and intricately color blocked pinky promise dresses). they got fourth place, the same place i finished season 3, which is really hard – you get SO CLOSE to the finale, but fall just short. i hold a special place in my heart for every fourth place finisher now.
hope you’re having a great weekend!
