I love scouring sources for sewing inspiration, so the ‘Sew Pinspired’ contest was the perfect motivation I needed to recreate a few looks I had pinned on my fashion board. Not to mention the PRIZES!?! There are some great prizes up for grabs … fabric…patterns…a coverstitch machine! A BIG thank you to the lovely and gracious sponsors: EBS Fabrics, Jaded Threads, Sahara Fabrics, Zenith & Quasar, So Sew English!
I am sharing two looks that I created using 5oo4 patterns…
INSPIRATION 1: Adorable floral dress with funnel neck and contrast cuffs.
It took me some time to figure out how to replicate this look and ultimately decided to mash two patterns:
I think it turned out super cute!
How I did it: A-line long dress (Easy Tee), long sleeves (color blocked), crew neckline to accommodate the funnel neck piece from the Weekender Tunic (no adjustments necessary)…so simple, and so cute!
This fabric is french terry and is super soft and cozy. I will probably sew some Ninja leggings to wear under this dress for added warmth as the weather cools. (Pssst…did you know that you can get the Ninja pattern for FREE!?! There is a code in the pinned post on the 5 out of 4 Patterns FB group page).
INSPIRATION TWO: Floral Raglan Hoodie
Pattern: Nancy Raglan Top, Tunic, and Dress (gotta love the options 5oo4 includes in all the their patterns).
I LOVE this hoodie! And I really like the unique hood design!
And don’t you LOVE this fabric? It’s from So Sew English – one of our contest sponsors! It’s french terry, and I get extra snuggles from my family when I am wearing it because it’s soooooo soft!
