Anything Goes Social Sew Round Up!

I can tell springtime is here--y'all used some gorgeous colors this month! The final Social Sew round up is here at last!

Coral Bunny Jess used a summery Rifle Paper Co. fabric to make a cold-shoulder "vacation" dress and has a great, comprehensive review of the pattern she used, the Lily Sage and Co. Chloe dress. She also made a great floral version of the new McCall's off-shoulder top 7543, which I passed on last trip to JoAnn and need to go back and get, obviously.

This Belle-inspired yellow Emery dress is my favorite thing SaraJolie has ever made--it's absolutely perfect and doesn't she look just like a princess? *heart eyes emoji x100*

German-language blog PeterSilie&Co made a great mix-and-match set of zebra print retro separates.

Lara Liz is back with more perfectly practical separates, this time, a nautical anchor-print Bonn shirt. She's been sewing the whole Indiesew Fall collection which I think is so smart--Allie over at Indiesew puts so much thought and love into those collections to make sure they're like a pre-fab capsule.

Mahlica Designs's maxi kimono-sleeve dress looks so comfortable--you could make a whole closet full of this pattern and wear it for everything from a beach cover-up to a dinner date. She also made a super-cute pajamas set with short and long sleeves and shorts and pants. Smart!

Tenille's Thread contributed several makes again this month--she's a quick sew! I can never tell if Named's Sointu kimono top would look good on me but it looks great on her in a simple black ponte knit,  She also made another kimono-sleeve tunic dress using a different version than the one Melissa used for a totally different look!

Diane's mint green "secret pajamas" dress has me swooning--perfect fit, a unique hem, and statement sleeves, all plus perfect stitching?? Ah-mazing.

Lara made her fourth Dove blouse (my favorite one so far, I think) in a pretty navy floral and those glam bell sleeves... love them.

This gingham shirt refashion from Crafty Disaster Lindsay is so cute! I always love a peplum. Her McCall's mix-and-match set has allll the flounces--perfect for spring and so on trend.

Stevie of BeeBee's Handmade Dress made a gorgeous cobalt blue bra and undies set using the new Harriet bra from Cloth Habit. So lovely--even if the fit isn't quite there yet!

Liz-o-matic made her second (but not final) Moneta dress in a navy and kelly green combination that I love.

Hoopes Park Studio made a sweet summer pattern-hack dress in a navy floral that she designed herself. Um, so cool.

Seamracer linked up a soon-to-be-blogged 60s dress in an amazing border print rayon... I can't wait to see more of it! She also has a clever rag curl tutorial on her blog and you will never guess what she uses to make perfect curls.

Emily made a cool retro zip front dress in a beautiful bright aqua using a pattern from Gertie's casual book.

Thank you all so, so much for participating in the past year of the Social Sew with me. I really appreciate every who linked up their projects, from the simplest tee shirt to the amazing dresses. I really hope I introduced you to some new favorites... I know I found some myself! And don't forget about these other sewalongs/monthly sewing challenges to fill that Social Sew-sized gap. I'll see you in the links!


ps: again, thaaaaaank yoooooou

  2. Thanks so much Allie for adding me to the round up! I'm just sorry I didn't discover Social Sew until the last edition. Thank you for running it. I definitely found a lot of new inspirations!

  3. Thank you so much for sharing! I am sad it is over. I hope you do something new to replace it. I like seeing all these posts about projects from people with some of the same style as me! Lots of good inspiration. Thanks again :)
