Hi there, folks at Get Your Craft On! I'm Suzannah from Adventures in Dressmaking and I'm so excited to be blog-swapping with Lynette today! I’m pretty new to the blogging community but I am absolutely loving it! On my blog I share sewing, decorating, and crafty projects I do. There are so many great blogs out there, so many talented people sharing their projects and ideas.
I grew up around a very talented mother who makes historic clothing for museums and reenactors, so I have been sewing from a very early age. I started to really get into sewing one summer a few years ago when I made two or three sun dresses from the same variable pattern, and since then I am hooked on making my own clothes for a fraction of the cost of similar ones at Anthropologie and J.Crew!
I have branched out recently, particularly since moving into a new apartment with my fiance, and I now do a lot of home dec sewing (simple curtains, pillows, etc.) and spray paint art!
Here are some of my favorite projects that I've been blogging about:
- One of my J.Crew-inspired embellished tops:
- My fun stenciled couch pillows:
- And this incredibly useful tutorial on mending blue jean holes:
Hope you all have had a great holiday season and are ready to pack up the Christmas decorations and craft away in the new year! I always enjoy taking a look at Lynette's blog, and hopefully you will find some fun things on Adventures in Dressmaking as well. Hope you come by and visit!
***Thanks Suzannah for swapping with me today! I love your style and I'm definitely going to have to try your mending jeans tutorial. Thanks!!!
