Blog Spotlight- Sew Weekly


I just adore this blog! Sew Weekly is a project blog by the talented and very creative Mena Trott to create a wardrobe sewn by her. Her taste is very vintage inspired and she usually uses vintage patterns and recycles/upcycles vintage items from thrift stores. I also like how she gives you very specific information about each piece and what inspired her to make it.

I have been reading this blog for a while, but the holiday dress she posted about recently was fabulous and I knew I had to blog about it and spread the retro-sewing love! This dress was made with a vintage 60s pattern and a tablecloth. Love, love, love it!

I have a pink scalloped tablecloth I bought to make a dress and I am so inspired by Mena's post that I may have to move it to the top of my "to sew" list.

Make sure you stop by her blog to see her other creations. Here's another of my favorites- An American in Paris Combo.

I would run that dress for office, it's so great. Poinsetta dress in 2012! Thanks for the hot tip, so cute!

What a cute idea. I hope you will sew up the pink one. I can't think of a nicer dress for a picnic! Lizzie
