...ready for a little weekly blog cruising
first stop Cashmerette creatively turned the Colette Moneta pattern every which way but loose this summer.  Jenny's renditions was one of the reasons I was tempted to buy the Colette pattern in the first place.  Absolutely loved her strippy Moneta.   I happened upon Jenny's blog several months ago, and have been in awe of her creations and great pictures and poses ever since.

 She's also a one of the creators of the Curvy Sewing Collective,  which is a plus sized sewing community that is well worth taking a peep at.

every now and again I have to stop by  The Renagade Seamtress, refashionista extraordinaire. Now mind you, refashioning really is not my main theme.  I just don't have the eye to envision great things being made from not so great things.  But when I saw Beth's refashioned sweater dress winters ago it made me pay attention to this blog

She just had her first book published too.  Three cheers to the Renagade Seamtress!
 a final stop to visit with Natalie at The Tiny ClosetAfter a friend told me about The Tiny Closet I had to visit her blog - read it from the beginning too.  The black top she wore in the first picture spinned me around so much that I would have purchased it if I could have found it.  Ended up having to create a pattern of my own to get it.  My top turned out pretty good and with just a little more tweaking will be a perfect fit through the neck area.  Thanks for the inspiration Natalie!

Natalie's husband Theo is an EXCELLENT  photographer as you'll see when you review her blog - which by the way is scheduled for a brand new re-launch in early September.
That's the trip for this go round, hope you'll join me again and again...
