Inspiring Makes on Pinterest

The social media aficonados among you are sure to be avid fans of image-based site Pinterest already.

For those of you who aren’t pinning like there’s no tomorrow, it’s basically an online inspiration board, akin to a scrapbook or a mood board. It’s a nice way to bookmark your favourite tutorials on a visual basis, for example.

Eagle-eyed readers and those of you who follow me on Pinterest already will notice my first board is dedicated to inspiring makes, where I’ve started collating some of my favourite sewing makes from the big talents on the sewing blogosphere. Sometimes, the best way to improve your stitching is by taking inspiration from other stitchers.

Take Angela from Sew I Thought, for example. After a bit of a blogging hiatus, she’s back with some blooming beautiful creations, including this bowtastic blouse made from Simplicity 2154, a reissue of a 1960s pattern. It’s very Mad Men, don’t you think?

 

Continuing with the vintage theme, how fantastic is Erika’s blue rose party dress? She’s really made the most of the panelled fabric and the little ric-rac details add a real professional touch.
