Stretchy Inspiration

Hopefully you all have the doubles (and triples…and tredecuples?!) out of your systems now and are ready to tackle some non-wovens!

Or perhaps you are like me and still working on your second Rooibos while Miss Bossy lounges on the dress form, tut-tutting in the background?

Oops! 😉

So we thought we’d throw together a quick creative encouragement post full of fun stretchy styles to motivate you.

There are A LOT of patterns to choose from so absorb the inspiration, change out those universal needles and get sewing!

  1. Lots of lovely inspiration. Mind you, the way I feel today maybe shapewear might be the best option… oh please can someone make ice cream slimming… 😉


  2. Hmmm…. three of these are in my ‘things I want to make in May’ list, and the patterns for two of the others are in my stash waiting to be made as well. Clearly, I don’t have enough of these patterns and need to collect more of them. 😉 (Especially that Ooh Lulu Ginger pattern, so gorgeous!!!)
