Second only to sewing, reading sewing blogs is one of my favorite things to do. I read lots of them, but I am dreadful at keeping up with my blogroll. I am not even sure why WordPress dropped it off my sidebar. Sigh…must look into that at some point. Anyway, since I don’t have my own sewing photos to post, I thought I would occasionally share some noteworthy things I find on other blogs.
I felt I should start things off with a person whom I find most inspirational. Perhaps it is because she does not fear color and combining prints. I like someone who is willing to take risks, and her risks totally pay off. Pam Erny makes a living by sewing custom designed and tailored men’s shirts. They are stunning. However, it is the stuff she makes for her nieces that I truly adore. Ok, truth be told, I envy many pieces, I want them for myself. Pam is fellow Ottobre fan. She likes hacking Ottobre patterns as much as I do. Unlike me, however, she actually gets around to sewing things, not just dreaming about them the way I do. I want to be Pam when I grow up. 🙂
Pop over to her site, Off the Cuff Style, to see her incredible work. She also has great tutorials for shirt making techniques. Click here for the link. Here’s a little sample of her amazing talents:
