AWESOME: Last Week's Links à la Couture

A brief intro: I love discovering new blogs, finding good tutorials and goggling at inspiring garments by fellow bloggers. There are some great weekly round-ups by other bloggers, but I want to offer you my own favorites, which relate to me as a DIY blogger and an aspiring couturiere. I hope those of you who voted for this reviews will find them useful and inspiring as well!

So, here is my first round-up of awesome posts from the past week (random order):

1. Patty the Snug Bug had a terrific tutorial full of modelling and photography tips. By the way, shooting images of or modelling my own garments was one of the main reasons why I failed in the Me-Made-March challenge.

2. Magda of MagdaMagda Design Studio posted another great tutorial on ‘Sun and Mercury Collar’: great use of stripes as a design element!

3. shared (OMG) the most recent knock-off pattern of Pippa's bridesmaid dress by an Australian pattern company Style Arc.
4. Jenni Radosevich of I SPY DIY shared this tutorial on how to spruce up your summer sandals using an old cotton scarf.

5. Amanda of Sewing in the Rain created this very cute Beignet Skirt (Colette Patterns). Check out those cute details.

Enjoy reading!

Disclaimer: I am sure there were more awesome posts last week - I apologize if I missed them! Feel free to add your suggestions as a comment!


  1. Pics and details of my Claire Shaeffer collection are in today's post. Enjoy.

  2. Awesome, thank you for sharing.

  3. Thank you so much for putting me up there! Gotta check out the rest of the links! I'll be looking forward to finding your links here every week!

  4. Ooo, thank you for including me in your list of links! I was so flattered to see that (I'm behind in my blog reading and just caught that now)! I'm going to check out your other links too, great idea :)

  5. P.S. Taking photos of myself daily for Me Made March also took its toll on me. I liked the exercise but not the photography part!
