Charlie & Aster

The amazing Farrah from Mingo & Grace has released her first pattern called the Charlie dress and it's to.die.for. Of course it's stylish because Farrah has the best style around. But I was even blown away by the layout of the pattern tutorial itself. What a great pattern! You can get it in the Mingo & Grace shop, or through the end of July as a Sewing Rabbit Pattern Member.

I paired it with an Aster cardigan made from the pattern by LBG Studio for Willow & Co. I love the professional finishing on this cardigan. The faux piped collar is so easy to make. It's even pretty on the inside. (the Charlie dress is too because the neckline and arm holes are bound with bias tape inside)

Matinee + Jumpsuit = Love (a pattern mashup)

Every once in a while a new sewing pattern will be released that becomes an instant "must-sew" and for me, the new Matinee Dress by A Jennuine Life is one such pattern.

Do you like camping? My husband is an outdoorsy kind of guy and used to love to take nothing but a backpack into the wilderness for days at a time. Me? I'd rather not sleep on the ground and eat dehydrated food.

But glamping (aka 'glamorous camping') is more my style. The Wanderlust collection by Willow & Co is full of PDF sewing patterns inspired by glamping. (You can read more about the patterns and glamping story in the Lookbook.)

Today, on the Willow & Co blog, I'm introducing two amazing looks from friends I'd love to go glamping with in real life. Here's a peek:
Be sure to visit The Sewing Rabbit to read all about Jess' fantastic Ash Jumpsuit, and to Mingo & Grace to read about this gorgeous Persimmon dress Farrah made.

And in the next week or two you'll see lots more inspiring outfits in the Glamping Tour.

Now I'm curious...would you rather go camping, or glamping?
