Stitching Spotlights 4.6.2012

Hey guys, it was my birthday this week – Wednesday to be exact. It’s the big 30 this year and I was going to post something about it, but I didn’t. Instead I’ve been sewing and prepping ideas for future stuff and all round, its been one rather nice and easy week. I’m good with that. That’s a good birthday week I think. So Happy Birthday to me, right?

This week’s spotlighted creation goes to Lauriana from Petit Main Sauvage. Lauriana has a keen eye for design and she knocked off this Burberry look with extraordinary finesse. Isn’t it gorgeous. I love the silhouette, fabric color and its just the right length. The waist detail is rather stunning too. Amazing frock Lauriana!

These lace tutorials (here & here) from Lauren about inserting lace by machine is really amazing. Definitely do not miss it! I can see this working beautifully in the bodice of a dress or even just a billowy cotton voile blouse just in time for summer.

A very noteworthy post on matching up stripes! Tasia has the most clever ideas and techniques!

More inspiring musings throughout the interwebs:
Did you catch this article? I found it most interesting. Do you think there is a pretty penalty?
A most favorite outfit to cross my reader – I just love Spring, don’t you?
I adore this dress recently finished by Jessica. Makes me want a pina colada, right. now.
Don’t miss Duane’s undercollar inspiration. I’ve only seen this once before, but I thought it was nothing less than stellar!
I love Lauren’s shirtwaist. She’s a regular belle in it.
I really hope you caught Lavender’s 1913 dress – don’t miss the giveaway either!
Loved this post on tips for sewing with knits!

Happy Easter Weekending!
