Sewing Indie Month

At the beginning of May, I heard about Sewing Indie Month via Dixie DIY. It's basically one big month of interviews and tutorials with all our favorite indie pattern designers. I know that I was super impressed with the line up of companies and bloggers participating. There is a contest running as well, with some amazing prizes.

Sewing Indie Month

Today I'm sharing my two makes for Sewing Indie Month, the By Hand London Victoria Blazer, and the SBCC Tonic Tee!

I'm submitting these garments in the category of Everyday Casual. What's more casual than a grey t-shirt? And the oversized Victoria Blazer is perfect for every day (seriously! it goes with everything!). Since it's made with cotton ponte, it's as comfortable as my favorite sweatshirt. Y'know, if the sweatshirt was lined with silk!

I've already written at length about my Victoria Blazer (here) and tomorrow I'll be posting my tips and tricks for working with the pattern. I'll have a more formal review of the Tonic Tee soon. I believe it deserves its own post! But for my Sewing Indie Month contest entry, I thought it would be more fun to skip all the wordiness and share a bunch of photos. Enjoy!


  1. I am intrigued by the neck on the t-shirt.


  2. I was just thinking the same thing: look at the finishing on that neckline! Wow! :)

    1. It took some slooooooooooow and steady coverstitching, but the results were worth it!


I would love to hear from you! Please feel free to comment below.
