Sewing Superstar: Rachel of Stitched Together

It’s time for me to introduce you to our next Sewing Superstar! (Learn more about this fun series HERE.)

Today we’re featuring Rachel, who blogs over at Stitched Together. She has five kiddos who get to wear an astonishing number of handmade clothes, and her versions of the Geranium Dress have been catching my eye from the get-go. Her candid photographs are always beautifully shot, in and around their home in Texas.

Don’t you just love all of those Geranium Dresses? Rachel has made so many of them; good thing she has so many daughters to wear them! She reports that this gorgeous blue one with yellow piping gets tons of compliments in real life, and look how sweet the photos in this blog post are.

Meanwhile, I honestly haven’t thought about the sunsuit in awhile, but I’m swooning over this gold one. Double gauze is such a perfect material for a baby sunsuit, and it’s no secret that Cotton + Steel Bespoke collection gets me every time. You can find my free baby sunsuit tutorial here. Don’t you think this little sunsuit deserves its own hashtag? Whaddya say… who wants to be the first to use #madebyraesunsuit?

It inspires me so much to see what you are making with my patterns. Please add your photos to the photo pool(s) or tag your pics with#raemademedoit or#madebyrae so I can see what you’re making. I’m excited to feature more Sewing Superstars here soon!

  1. I love the site Lots of creative sewing–sews out of Japanese books. Do you know this site?

  2. I love all the Geranium dresses! And speaking of it, it turns fall over here. Any news on the sleeve add on plans? #geraniumtotherescue

  3. Her blog is beautiful, as are her girls and sewn clothes for them. I need some off-topic help, if you’re willing and able. I just received 3 yards of your delightful peachy fox flannel for my fox-crazy girl. I asked her if she wanted a pair of moon pants or parsley pants with it. (I’ve made both before.) She hesitated, so I asked if she wanted a shirt instead. (I’ve made the Flashback Tee.) She beamed and exclaimed, “A jacket! I want a jacket!” So I wonder; (1) Is this okay fabric for a jacket? It’s a bit thin, but I could line it. Never done that before, but there’s a first time for everything, and (2) If yes (gulp), then… any idea where to start looking for patterns? I can’t find a single pattern in any of my stash, outside of a Spring 2014 issue of Ottobre, but I’m not sure it’s my skill level. Not even sure any jacket is, but one has to start somewhere sometime. Any advice?
