Ruth's By Hand London Eloise Dress

Hi everyone! I’m Ruth (@sewroo) and I’m very excited to be showing you my latest make via a guest blog for Sew Sew Sew. I have been sewing for almost 4 years now and it has (like most of us) become an obsession which shows no sign of waning!   The fabric When Katie asked if I would like to write a blog post for her I knew it would be a tough decision to narrow my fabric choice down to one as she stocks so many beautiful fabrics.  However, I already knew I wanted to make an Eloise dress...

I found the pattern first and then searched and searched for the fabric and I came across this lovely shop.

Hi Everyone I’m Amy of almondrock.co.uk and I’m super excited to share my latest make with you, so big thanks to Katie for having me here to guest post! Abstract prints like terrazzo or matisse style cutouts are having a fantastic revival. They’re so bold and imperfect and interestingly can evoke different feelings depending on the colours mixed in. After spotting a dress on Pinterest I had been searching for a great abstract floral print and sewsewsew came to the rescue. I needed a terrazzo that wasn’t on a pale or white base as that doesn’t suit my colouring so...
