Make It Perfect, Shearwater Kaftan


Woohoo! We made it to the end of the month! It’s the last day of the Pattern Parade today and I’ve loved seeing all the beautiful creations from Make It Perfect patterns. Laura from Behind the Hedgerow joins us for the last day. Laura and her family have recently moved from Belgium to the English countryside. On Laura’s blog, she documents all of the many things she sews for herself and her children. Another inspiring blog to add to the reading list!
Laura has made a pretty Shearwater Kaftan for the Pattern Parade, in some dreamy, spotty double gauze. It really suits her and is such a versatile item of clothing. Visit Behind The Hedgerow to read and see more about Laura’s Kaftan!

Make It Perfect, Poppy Tunic


Welcome to Pattern Parade catwalk Janelle from The Janelle Wind Collection! Janelle is a fellow Aussie pattern designer with a big heart who loves all things vintage, thrifting, sewing and her beautiful family (not in that order!) Each Wednesday on her blog, Janelle shares a fashion post often featuring thrifted clothing and accessories. I’m excited today for this post to coincide with her appearance on the Pattern Parade!

Isn’t she a stunner?! Janelle has such a gorgeous, unique style. I love her Poppy Tunic and entire outfit and could find myself quite comfortably wearing it every day. Make sure you visit The Janelle Wind Collection for more photos of this beautiful outfit.

Coastal Breeze, Make It Perfect


Today we have the beautiful Christie from A Lemon Squeezy Home on the Pattern Parade catwalk. Christie is a devoted Mother to her four cute kids who loves to sew and craft. Her style is bright and fun and she sews heaps of clothes for herself and her children – make sure you browse through her blog for some inspiration!

In the Pattern Parade today Christie is wearing Coastal Breeze dress that is so pretty. I love the fresh, Summery colours and she shows how styling the dress with a blazer gives a more formal, dressed up look – this dress is so versatile, much more than a beach cover-up! So head over and visit A Lemon Squeezy Home for more

Make It Perfect, Sun Kissed Hat

.MIP Pattern Parade: ZAABERRY.

We’re on the final week of the Pattern Parade – what an awesome showcase we have seen so far! Today we welcome Ruby from Zaaberry. I’m not sure how I first stumbled across Zaaberry, but I have bee lurking in the shadows as a reader for awhile now and love Ruby’s clean, sophisticated style. She sews a lot for herself and her daughter and everything has that “wearable” look to it…detailed enough to be stylish, but classic enough to get lots of wear from, you know what I mean?
Ruby is sharing a Sun Kissed Hats she sewed for her daughter before a recent family trip. I love the pop of colour and awesome sun coverage. It’s been awhile since I last made a Sun Kissed Hat, might have to pop that one on the list for Summer sewing prep! Make sure you pop into Zaaberry to see more!
