A little while back Suz contacted me and these talented bloggers below to see if we would be interested in joining her for a little sewing fun. Anspired sewing fun. An of StraightGrain is such an inspiration to this bunch of sewing geeks and a lot of you out there, I know for sure.
I got to meet An irl a couple of months ago in London, and she is just as sweet as I had imagined. With impeccable taste in fabric and design. (You should see her in a Liberty store....all heart eyed).
An is all about lovely bright colors, preferably mustard, mint and pink, stunning landscape prints, perfect details, a little Liberty and amazing dresses and jackets. An has been offering great pdf patterns for some years now, and has recently released her very first paper pattern - the beautiful Moiano - way to go, girl!!
Here's my Anspired outfit for Wilma. A pink/mustard drop shoulder color block dress and a matching jacket with a 'hidden pocket' detail. The dress is a vintage McCalls pattern hack and the jacket is based on a vintage Vogue pattern. I drafted the pocket detail myself.
All the fabric is from The Sweet Mercerie. The jacquard I used for the jacket is sold out but the gorgeous crepe is still available, I believe.
Thank you so much for inviting me and organizing this little tribute, Suz.
