Stitching Spotlights 3.23.2012

It's been a hectic week. Again. That seems to be a common theme around these parts as of late. But not to worry! I've got several upcoming posts scheduled for next week including, but not limited to, the finale of Inserting a Lining into a Vented Skirt. There's also new projects on my table, ones I need to finish up and several I'm dying to get my hands into. How's your week been?

This week's spotlighted creation goes to Novita from verypurpleperson! When this Vogue pattern came on the scene, I quickly snatched up a copy because I LOVED the dress. Seeing it all done up in such a fabulous jersey print makes me crave a version of my own. I think Novita looks positively sensational in it! Fabulous work Novita! My eyes are green with envy!

Have you guys heard of Springpad? I came across it the other day and have been rather pleased with the way it works to organize items I find inspirational, techniques I would like to use, patterns I'm dreaming of, etc. Basically its just a great way to organize bookmarks and info and of course, my topics are all sewing related. Go figure.

I thought this was an excellent post by Tanit-Isis that went up just yesterday. Definitely have a look and read if you are interested in the world of fitting a sloper to commercial/indie patterns. Thanks for a great and informative post Tanit-Isis!

More lovely things from around the webs:
