Welcome to Sew into Spring with Pickle Toes Patterns. Join us for 5 days of sewing our patterns as we prep for the transition from winter to spring. We were lucky enough to have 10 bloggers join us sewing up lovely creations and to have Evelyn at Sewierd Fabrics sponsor our bloggers and offer us a store credit for one of our lovely readers. You can find Evelyn on Facebook. At the end of the tour join us for a rafflecopter giveaway featuring a $20 credit from Seweird and a $20 shop credit from us.


When the Blog Hop was brought up I knew I wanted to be a part of it. :) Blog hops are so much fun! You get to see everyones favorite patterns, ideas, and hacks! Pickle Toes puts out some amazing patterns and I truly bounced between a few before I decided on the All Seasons top. All though I didn't want a top! 

Living in Florida now I have discovered why summer dresses are all the rage! I love having a fun little dress to put on when its humid and ho…

Vintage Love

When I saw the test go up for the Vintage Kate Tea dress I was prepared to beg to be accepted..Seriously beg. I could tell from just the drawing that it was going to be one of my favorite dresses ever.

Y'all I cannot even begin to describe how much I love this dress.The fabric is a very lovely Rayon that I found at Hobby Lobby. I had bought it with no project in mind. It was the perfect fit.

The pattern is one of the most well written patterns I have done.Its really sometimes quite difficult to test.

Caught up on with the Challenge!

The vest actually counted for 2 weeks as I made 2 of them.   The pattern was free that I found on the internet. Its not honestly even worth repeating the name. It was poorly written and I had nothing but problems with it..The fabric is from my stash and they both are costumes for the upcoming Star Wars 5k.
The cover up is a pattern from Pattern Emporium called the Calypso Kaftan. The fabric is from a dress that I bought in the Philippines. I loved the fabric but the dress not so much. I am LOVING the kaftan though!
