Last Saturday I attended a sewing party for Project Hope in Brooklyn that was hosted by Liesl & Co. (creator of my favorite sewing patterns for chidren- Oliver + S, I'm sure you're all familiar with her work). Obviously, it was wonderful helping out such a fantastic cause, but there's nothing like getting together with like-minded women who are happy to talk about all things creative. I went hoping that being around amazingly creative women like Liesl and Heather Ross would inspire me to get sewing again. It worked!
By the way, Crafty Chole is just about the cutest book ever that was illustrated by the amazing Heather Ross (I was kicking myself that I didn't take my copy to have it signed for my daughter), and have you seen the Crafty Chloe blog with darling, kid-friendly craft projects? Brilliant!
You can see the wrap-up post to see all the dresses that were completed HERE on the Oliver + S blog, and they also put up a gallery of images I took from the day on their facebook page. You can see them HERE
Thanks ladies! Let's do it again soon! We'll just pretend I'm sitting in the empty chair at the front :)
