Stitching Spotlights 12.7.2012

Hi friends! How’s your December shaping up? Mine is going pretty well. The coat is almost finished. Almost. I promised the mister he would have it by Monday and by George! it will be done! Things have been kind of quiet around here and its been really nice! Gosh – that’s a little weird to say when it’s verging on Christmas. Wait! Did I just say the “C” word? My mister and I don’t get too crazy (meaning presents) about this time of year as we just look forward to being together and enjoy one another’s company. What about you? Whatever you are doing, I do hope you all are doing well and your holidays become what you want them to be.

This week’s spotlighted creation goes out to Peter! He’s got some gift giving spirit already making this shirt for Michael. So fabulous! I do love a great men’s shirt and this one is in flannel to boot – I’ll bet its amazingly comfy! I’ve been wanting a flannel shirtdress actually and this was totally inspiring for that! Lovely shirt Peter!

Please tell me you didn’t miss the new Cordova jacket! I hurried up and purchased my copy right when I saw the photos hit my reader. Hip Hip Hooray! Jackets can be one of the hardest things to construct and lookey here, Tasia – clever minx – has created a jacket pattern that doesn’t look daunting in the least. Sheesh! A great pattern and I’m sure it will become another standby for me. I’m in love with all things Sewaholic! Go get your copy today!

I loved this post from Megan about the Everyday Wear-ability Test. You guys, this is serious Everyday Wardrobe talk right here! I love the idea of testing out a garment as everyday friendly though when your time is limited it can be impossible, so its really nice when a designer does it for you. I love that! Hop on over and have a gander!

More fanciness to catch my eye this week:
This post by Already Pretty was amazing! Truer words were never spoken.
● I love this post from The Perfect Nose.
● An awesome idea for getting that UFO pile going.
● Aren’t these darling?
● Speaking of Christmas Ornaments, this ornament exchange was brilliant! Loved. It.
● A gorgeous jacket! So jealous!

Have a happy weekend readers!

  • Michael (of the shirt) - Thank you for featuring me and my shirt on your blog, Sunni! You are right in suspecting that my new shirt is comfy — it’s my new favorite garment and I’m hoping that in spite of global warming we’ll have lots of cold days this winter on which I can wear it.

    Good luck with your shirtdress project….ReplyCancel
