Today we are having fun with my dear friend Annika from Näh-Connection!
The thing with Annika is that I think she is my "sewing soulmate"!:)
I have only been following her blog for a few months but we got to connect quite a lot and we realized that we have the same tastes and a lot of similar projects on our to do list.
Last week as I messaged her, she said she was about to sew a Staple dress. It turns out, I was making one too! that same week.
Crazy! so we thought; let's do this together! Now : I live in France and she lives in Germany !
but thanks to Facebook we got to follow each other's progress.
Let me tell you she is a much faster sewer than I am and her dress is so cool!
So here is to a new fun series, that will go on on our blogs but with no strict schedule:
"Thursday soulmate sewing!"
It is so much fun to sew together even though we are in different countries.
For my take on the Staple dress pattern, I used an Arizona print: really can't get enough of this collection! and uit meant that April Rhodes pattern maker met April Rhodes farbric designer!
I cut in size XS and upgraded to size S around the hip line and all the way down the skirt.
It was such a great sew and I would recommend it to beginners as you can learn really cool tricks like french seams and a great way to hem.
Well that's it for me today folks!
I hope you go and visit sweet Annika's blog to check out her cool version!
