The Weekend Reading List

My week has been full of everything but¬†sewing! I’ve still been keeping tabs on my favourite blogs – here are some posts which may tickle your fancies too!

Tilly popped up a tutorial for puff sleeves yesterday, the same as those featured on her latest button back blouse. I love a good tutorial, and Tilly’s are always very helpful.

It’s not about sewing per se, but Miss Katie wrote an excellent post this week, hitting back at women looking down on those who enjoy past-times traditionally associated with females. She says it a lot better than I do, go read!

This post from Tasia at Sewaholic earlier in the week caught my eye. She asks: “How¬†does your partner feel about your love of sewing?” It’s worth delving into the comments as well as reading the post itself, maybe even share your own experiences!

Speaking of reading comments – have a look at those on my last post about getting rid of old clothes, it’s been great to read people’s experiences with textile recycling. On a similar, sustainable, note, Zoe has a great post about commercial consumption which is, as always, very thought-provoking.

Happy reading!
