Katja of Of Dreams and Seams on Sewing and Style

I’m excited to bring a guest post by Katja of Of Dreams and Seams in my continuing series of guest posts exploring individual connections between sewing and style. I simply adore Katja’s many recycled creations wherein she cuts apart old garments and uses them for imaginative and stylish new clothing and I can’t wait to share her take on sewing and style. I’m Katja and I have a blog called Of Dreams and Seams. I actually want to include a lot more fashion sketches, which are supposed to be the “Dreams”-part of my blog title, but I never have enough time to give my drawing the attention it first needs before I want to publish it… My “Seams” however can be seen plentiful, recently a lot of recycled garments are popping up, because I love the idea of using resources to their max, I hate causing a lot of trash and my sense …

Morgan of Crab&Bee on Sewing and Style

I’m delighted to introduce another guest blogger in my Sewing & Style series, the lovely Morgan of Crab&Bee. She and I were introduced through the stashbusting sewalong and I’m delighted to say that I traded her some linen from my stash for a new-to-me dress pattern. I’m excited to see what she eventually does with the linen and I look forward to eventually sewing up the pattern.

I started out sewing cute dresses but I’ve realized that I wear a lot …

Maddie of Madalynne on Sewing and Style

I’m intrigued by individual style, how someone defines her style, how she finds that style. I’m particularly intrigued by how a sewer’s ability to create her own clothes influences that style. To explore this, I’m posting a series of guest posts from different bloggers who sew, each exploring their individual connection between sewing and style. Thanks to Maddie, one of the first gals I think of when I think style, for her part in this series. Hi, my name is Maddie Flanigan and I am the blogger behind Madalynne, the cool sewing and pattern making blog. If Steve McQueen was the “King of Cool,” then Madalynne is the “Queen of Cool.” My blog covers everything from how to draft a sloper to interviews with independent pattern makers/designers and what projects I’m working on. For two and a half years, my day job was in the technical design department for a …
