Our biggest show of the year is fast approaching: Sewing and Stitchery Expo 2016 in Puyallup, Washington!
Linda & Kathy are headed to the expo.
Handwoven Trio Top
Hand-dyed Trio Top.
I love this Animal Print L2 Bag! Why make a bag that doesn't stand out in the crowd?
I'm telling you, the look of the Origami Skirt is coming back! First the inspiration from Fashion Week (see A little dream, a little fashion post) and now this beautiful Blue Velvet number. Great look for winter!
Erin wore a Purple Polka Dot Tosca Dress, belted with tall black boots. Too add a little bit more, she wore it as a “jumper” with a Urban T-Shirt underneath.
Linda kept it simple wearing a Black Tosca Dress, leggings and her beautiful quilted ankle boots. Sadly, in all the hustle & bustle Linda's picture wasn't taken in full. But here's a great group shot taken after a hard days work!
The customers seemed to really like seeing our new pattern on all 3 of us. We made a statement!
Truthfully, I wouldn't have put this outfit together myself. I tend to shy away from a-line tops. But the way the Alex Top & the eShrug work together, it's really quite slimming. The Hudson Pants really pull the entire look together. Guess it pays off listening to Linda & Kathy. They really know their fashion!
Linda looked great Friday in her signature color, citrus green. She put together an unexpected combination of the Whistles Shirt, eShrug & Hudson Pants. The outfit looks fabulous using simple colors & drapey fabric.
So what's in store for tomorrow? Have we got a surprise for you. One hint, "How do you wear it?" Check back in tomorrow for more outfits.
The perfect coat for this Northeast rainy weather, the Soho. I love the vibrant red with the black toggles. Great detail!
Color blocking is so in fashion lately. And Marilynn always knows how to pull it off! I think someone found her new “signature” color. That teal blue is dynamite in the Liberty Shirt!
We finally have a new dress pattern! And with all the Tosca Dress garments we keep seeing at the expo, it seems our customers were excited too! I love it in this Grey Wool Knit. So flattering!
I think Karen likes the San Diego Jacket pattern (she was wearing 3 yesterday) Shown here as a vest in the most glorious crinkle fabric. I think we need to go fabric shopping together.
The first day of the Sewing & Stitchery Expo is complete-and we had a blast! It’s always so fun to meet & be reintroduced to all of our loyal & inspiring customers. We love when customers come up to the booth wearing our patterns. Whether the patterns (and fabric too) were purchased in our booth last year, or many years before, it’s always fun to see how each individual creates the pattern for them. The fabric choices, the design elements, the details that really make the garment all about them!
Here are just a few great pictures that I captured today.
This Trio Top is fabulous! The blend of black & white cottons and linens is subtle, yet dramatic with the piecing in front, as well as on the back yoke.
Linda, Kathy & I have fun figuring out what we’re going to wear for each day of the expo. It’s quite the process actually. So each day I will post the “outfit of the day”.
Here’s what we came up with for Thursday. I know I felt really comfortable yet stylish. I think Linda & Kathy would agree, Thursday’s outfits were a success! What do you think?
Linda: eShrug in Black Pebble Knit (new pattern coming soon!)
Alex Top in Purple Print Knit
Zigzag Pants: Black Cotton Lycra Blend
