You might remember the 1 Pattern, 7 Bloggers challenge that I took part in 2 years ago. Basically 7 bloggers (myself and the above!) each make a garment using the same pattern.
I'm really excited to see how our styles and skills have developed & I can't wait to see what everyone makes!
I'll be back next week to share inspiration for my dress and probably cry about how i'm drastically behind and have stitched my finger or something. Then on the 2nd September we will reveal our final creations and announce the giveaway winners (more on the giveaway below).
We're using Colette Pattern's Macaron. Despite being released 4 years ago(!) I continue to see fresh and unique Macaron creations. It's one of those beautiful patterns that seems to encourage a unique take every time it's made. Perfect for the 1 Pattern, 7 Bloggers challenge no?
This will be my 2nd Macaron - the first being made to wear to my graduation. I had only been sewing for around 9 months and the stitching was atrocious, the seam-finishes non existent, the waist too tight, and I wore it to death. True love people.
Also, I miss that mop of hair.
Get yo macaron on! If you don't already have the macaron pattern you can buy it here or enter the giveaway. Actually, you should enter the giveaway anyway. It's kind of amazing.
