Thread Faction SS2016 Blog Tour

I am so excited to be participating in the Thread Faction SS2016 blog tour! I am sharing my take on Pattern #108 - a dolman sleeve knit dress or peplum top with a half circle skirt. It is one of seven patterns in a new spring/summer collection from Thread Faction Studio. The collection is full of great knit basics for the upcoming months.

Me-Made May 2016


It's that time of the year again - Me-Made May! Here is my pledge: "I, Elizabeth of The College Seamstress ( and @thecollegeseamstress on Instagram), sign up as a participant of Me-Made May '16. I endeavor to wear at least one me made item each day for the duration of May 2016. I also endeavor to finish my UFOs by the end of the month; I will also sew something new for myself and get back into the habit of sewing. I've been slacking in that area! I will share pictures on Instagram." 

Since my job requires a uniform of scrub tops/pants the "one me made item each day" applies to when I'm not at work. Also, I may not share pictures every day as in the past it has been exhausting to take a picture of my outfit every day of the month. I am determined to get back to sewing more often. It has been hard with my full time job. It's not that I don't have time, but I just make excuses. This post about finding your sew-jo sums it up perfectly. 

Are you participating in Me-Made May this year?
