The 2017 Fall/Winter Collection launched just ten days ago and it's been so inspiring to see what you all are sewing from it already! I've seen multiple finished Coram and Matcha Tops and I love that you're all finding the Carrie Cardigan a super fast and satisfying sew.

Over the past ten days seven sewing bloggers shared their versions of the 2017 Fall/Winter Collection. Three of the designers included in the collection participated (always such a treat) and four other stellar sewists and bloggers joined in too.

Let's see what they made.

Jen • Grainline Studio

Jen from Grainline Studio | Matcha Top

Jen, the creator of Grainline Studio sewing patterns and the Tamarack Jacket, sewed a sleeveless Matcha Top in ikat fabric. I love that this top can be worn all year round when layered with a cardigan in cooler temps. See more photos in her post here.


Erica • My Handmade Wardrobe

Erica from My Handmade Wardrobe | Coram Top and Tamarack Jacket

We love Erica's commitment to creating her own handmade wardrobe, with every blog post detailing how much time and money she spent on a project. She sewed and blogged about three of the patterns in this bundle: the Coram Top, Tamarack Jacket, and a pair of pinstriped Burnside Bibs. Check out her posts here, here, and here.


Tori • The Doing Things Blog

Tori's Coram Dress |

Sigh. Tori has such a knack for making sewing patterns absolutely sing. She sewed up a Coram Dress making a few modifications for her height. Her fabric had a bit of stretch that resulted in a super relaxed fit dress that blouses beautifully with a waist tie. Read her post here.


Kristi • SweetKM

Kristi's Tamarack Jacket | Indiesew 2017 F/W Collection

Kristi's classic take on the Tamarack Jacket got the most likes on a single Instagram post we've ever published. You all are suckers for pretty guts. She pattern matched and bound the pockets of this jacket. And of course, her styling is on point as always. Don't miss her post here.


Peggy • Sew House Seven

Peggy's Coram Dress and Matcha Top | Indiesew Blog

Peggy, the designer of the Burnside Bibs, sewed up a Coram Dress and Matcha Top, both in beautiful dark neutrals. We love how she topstitched the shoulder and bust dart on her Coram Dress, and how she styled it over jeans. Read her post here.


Leslie • Threadbear Garments

Indiesew | Leslie's Coram Top and Carrie Cardigan

The lovely Leslie showed us her version of the Coram Top (This is her muslin!) and the Carrie Cardigan worn over the top. Her Coram Top was sewn in a drapey rayon plaid and she used our sold-out Charcoal French Terry for the cardigan. See more in her post here.


Meg • Sew Liberated

Meg's Burnside Bibs and Carrie Cardigan | Indiesew

Meg, the designer behind Sew Liberated and the creator of the Matcha Top, rounded out our blog tour with three amazing garments. She sewed two pairs of the Burnside Bibs (one in a lovely print, not pictured here). Then she wowed us even more by showing off her hand dyed Carrie Cardigan (shown in image at top of post). Don't miss her post here.

As always, this blog tour absolutely floored and inspired me to sew another version of each pattern in the bundle. Each of these sewing patterns sewn in a different fabric and worn on varying body types reinforces my belief that these five sewing patterns are some of the most versatile out there!

If you haven't yet, check out the 2017 Fall/Winter Collection. When you buy it bundled, you can save 25% over the individually priced patterns!

We'll be back next week with more collection inspiration and a handy tutorial! Stay tuned!
