Sunday Sew: A Sprout Pattern!

NOV 29, 2015

At least one Sunday a month, we like to take some time out to share a unique sewing experience that stands out a bit from the rest in a series we call “Sunday Sew.” This month, Spoonflower staffer Allie stops by to talk about her experience sewing up a sophisticated Sprout Patterns Laurel Blouse, which she wore on her trip to NYC for Martha Stewart’s American Made 2015 Awards!

An important update about Sprout Patterns | Spoonflower Blog

Allie: I had the opportunity to stitch up my first project by Sprout Patterns a few weeks ago in preparation to attend Martha Stewart’s American Made awards. While I’ve done quite a bit of sewing, when it comes to apparel I tend to stick to the most basic silhouettes. For the event, I wanted to look polished and professional, while still remaining comfortable.

I chose the Laurel Blouse by Colette Patterns printed on Silky Faille and it did not disappoint. I opted for a simple design created by Andrea Lauren. Her black and white Animal Constellations printed beautifully and was exactly what I wanted–a quirky yet sophisticated design unique to Spoonflower’s crafty community.

If you haven’t tried Sprout, or sewing apparel, you certainly should! It was super easy to create a custom top that I was able to tailor slightly for a better fit. By ordering a few sizes larger than I normally wear, I had the flexibility to adjust the side seams to achieve the fit I was looking for. Being creative with your order and sizing allows you to “hack” your Sprout Pattern and be able to adjust sizing and tailor your garment to fit perfectly. The instructions were clear and easy to understand and allowed me to make a unique top in no time. I also had the original PDF with all sizes so I can make another one in months to come!

A panel of wallpaper with repeating rows of narrow ovals with pointed tops and bottoms on a cream background is shown laying as if installed on a wall it is taking up the entire background of the image. The ovals are randomly black and dark orange. In the middle third on the right-hand side of the image, four rolls of the same wallpaper design in different colorways are laid lengthwise on top of the black-and-dark-orange panel. Only about a fourth of the rolls are shown. The rolls of wallpaper from top to bottom feature green-and-blue ovals on a cream background, black-and-white ovals on a cream background, orange-and-gray ovals on a cream background and kelly-green-and-dark-green ovals on a cream background.
