Free Pattern Friday
Summer is sometimes the last season people think about knitting sweaters, but I think that is a mistake. Take the sweater above for an example (it’s Poncho Top by Sára Mrdalo and Eyðleyg í Garði). I love that it has eyelets and is made from a DK weight yarn. I think this one works particularly well in our climate in East Alabama and West Georgia. I would love to see this knit out of Berroco Vintage Dk.

I made a skirt (that instagram won’t let me show, stupid square dimensions)! Guess you’ll just have to head over to #sewclassic for the details… Oh, and I made the top too!  #sewing http://ift.tt/WnxefG

New Vintage Lady help

smolderingwickdesigns:

Some of you sewists may know Shelley who blogs over at New Vintage Lady about plus size vintage sewing. She also writes/ illustrates the popular comic Vintageville.

The super-hard-working Shelley and her wonder-dog Brian (such a cutie!) have been struggling to make ends meet for a while, and while it sounds like she finally has some more permanent prospects for the future, things are pretty tight right now.

I know she’s not the sort to just ask for $ but she does have an etsy shop where she sells her own original vintage-inspired patterns as well as some vintage clothing and other fun things.

She says she needs to come up with $300 by the end of the week*, so if any of you could either purchase a little something from there or signal boost this post, that would be great.

(NVL doesn’t even know me, much less that I am posting this, but i’ve been following her a good long while & just want the best for her).

*posting this mid July 2014
