Tidal Lace Blog Hop!!!

i met vibrant textile designer Kim Andersson of I Adore Pattern at the Makerie earlier this year, and learned that she was soon releasing her first print collection for Windham Fabrics: Tidal Lace. how exciting! of course i jumped at the chance of creating a project in one of her lovely fabrics. i chose Sea Gems in White to make the Beachcomber Dress, a simple sundress using one of the patterns i drafted for my Pattern Drafting workshop on Creativebug. it’s a sweet shift with a gathered yoke seam that makes for a loosely skimming dress that can be worn belted or not. i’ve been wearing the gingham one i made all summer, so i knew it was just the style to sew up for this tidepool-inspired print. you could make one too!

TLKim also had a Datura Blouse and an Alder Skirt stitched up to show off her prints. check out the Tidal Lace look book to see all the pretties.

Kim was recently on the Modern Sewciety podcast. i plan to listen to while sewing this week to find out more about how her process and inspiration.

summer officially ends tomorrow here in NY, but these prints make me long for a nice walk on the beach, collecting sand dollars and shells and hoping to glimpse a starfish. they’ll be in stores in January 2015, in plenty of time to sew up some loveliness for when the sunshine returns…

TLbundleWindham and Kim have graciously offered a fat quarter bundle giveaway for every stop on the Tidal Lace Blog Hop so you might want to hop around and enter! leave a comment here saying what you would make by midnight PST on Sunday 9/28 and i’ll pick a winner on Monday the 29th.
