Finally sewing again!

So I took a break from sewing . . . a 22 day break (who’s counting ;))

But now I’m back!

ReversibleCoatAnd my first project is this reversible spring coat that I made for iCandy Handmade’s Basic Bodice Series.  You can catch the full tutorial over there!

The idea behind the Basic Bodice Series is that if you have a great bodice pattern and know how to alter the pattern or add some embellishments, the possibilities are endless in terms of what you can create.  So this coat, and all the other projects from series guests, started with a basic bodice pattern.  You probably already have one in your pattern collection.  In my tutorial I’ll show you how to alter your pattern to make a reversible coat!

They also have a linky party going on right now for all of you who want to share YOUR basic bodice creations.  So if you’ve ever used a bodice pattern to make something, link it up here and your outfit might be featured at the end of the series!

ReversibleCoat1I still can’t believe I cut into my Nani Iro Metallic Pocho for this coat.  This stuff is GORGEOUS (and not cheap)!  But it feels good to just go for it sometimes, and I think it paid off this time.  Yuki looks pretty darn cute in her fancy coat :)  And I wish you could see the subtle shimmer of these dots!  Man, it’s beautiful.  I really think the next time I sew with Nani Iro, I need to make something for me!

Anyways, it feels good to be back at the machine.  I’ve got lots of fun things coming up, so it’s time for me to get busy!

But for today, please hop on over to iCandy handmade to check out my tutorial and say hi!

Thanks :)
