Stitching Spotlights 12.14.2012

The coat is finished. Like, all the way done. Can you even believe that? Mr. S has been at death’s door with the flu so we haven’t yet been able to take photos. Nor has he had the haircut he promised me to get because I finished the coat – do you make deals with your significant other like this? I’ll make you a coat if you’ll please just get a haircut. Somehow, I’m pretty sure one is not on the same level as the other, but the things we do for love, am I right? Anyways, photos will happen this weekend or my name is mud. Promise.

Lauren’s totally rad, stylin, fabulous dress flipped through my reader just yesterday and I had to give it the spotlighted creation badge this week. Isn’t it awesome? It’s knit, its amazingly comfortable and its that pattern. What pattern you say? It’s that Tiramisu pattern put out by Cake. Hop on over for totally awesome pattern hook-up. Lauren, you are the bomb and so is that dress.

This is one of the best tutorials for cutting silk I have ever seen. Really amazing results, I’m so excited to try. In fact, I’m very excited to try it on any slippery fabric really, I mean think of all that rayon bemberg lining. The precision is what really freaks me out. I LOVE this! Jen, seriously, you’re a genius!

I haven’t really gotten into the holiday spirit much around here. Things just seem so scattered this year. But, I am enjoying seeing the inspiring little tutorials for holiday decorating. Isn’t this a cute idea? Wouldn’t take too long either.

More inspired goodness from this week:
● Peter makes another fabulous shirt, for himself. Two more actually, here & here.
● Loving this rub-off that Karen did. She looks pretty killer in a short skirt, wouldn’t you say?
● I love this dress from Tasia, but she points out why it was a flop. What was your last sewing flop?
● The cutest little knits in the whole world. I can’t wait to see the mini Casey all dolled up in them!

Have a wonderful weekend!
