Desert Bloom blog tour

Hello Modern Sewists and Welcome!! I’m so thrilled you stopped by. Today is my stop on the Desert Bloom blog tour. I was so excited to work with these beautiful fabrics and I was so happy when I found out that there were knits! I love to sew with knits and you should too! You may think that knits are scary but they really aren't. You can sew them on a household sewing machine. All you need to know is a few key things which you can read about here and here!. I started garment sewing when I was in high school and I’ve never stopped.
I loved Amanda’s prints and I knew they would be perfect for some new summer duds. So I whipped out my well used copy of the Scout tee by Grainline studios and went to work.
 My Desert Bloom scout tee.
 Perfect for a hot summer day!
 The scout tee is about the easiest pattern you can find and it's great with knits! Go give it a try!
I had been looking for an excuse to try to sew up a Driftless cardigan also by Grainline studios and here is the Desert bloom version! A perfect neutral gray which will go with just about everything this summer.
And it has pockets! You know for your cell phone! Brilliant!
So fun! Thanks for the new summer wardrobe Amanda! Happy Sewing my friends.
