BODY POSITIVE SEWING - Cottesloe Swimsuit

Okay, holding my breath a little, here we go!!! It's Amanda of @amanda.isewalot and here i am back on the Pin and Sew Blog with my newest make. The lovely Aga recently put a call out to see if anyone on the blogger team would be interested in doing a blog post featuring swimwear and her new swim/activewear fabric. At first, I was extremely hesitant as I was not sure about posting photos of myself in swimwear on the internet and I think my lovely co-bloggers also had reservations.

Choosing a fabric to review was very difficult as the new woven collection offers many beautiful prints and if you know me, then you know that I can’t resist a print.

PIN & SEW MAKES: French Chic Polka Dot Elmira Cardigan

Hello, Samantha (@theruralsewist) here bringing you my first Pin and Sew blog post for May.I do love taking inspiration from a French clothing company called Sézane, they have a very feminine and flattering collection and I particularly love the little details they add to garments.With this in mind, I chose the polka dot jersey that I could imagine as a wrap cardigan and I immediately thought about adding some lace details to the sleeves.

PIN & SEW MAKES : Watercolour Succulents Jersey Elliot Sweater

Hi fellow sewers, I'm Ruth(@ruthiesews)and this is my first blog post as part of the Pin and Sew Blogger Team. I hope you enjoy it! I love so many of Aga's fabrics, which I think are just that little bit unusual, but I finally decided on this one called 'Watercolour Succulents': I even love the name!   Then I had to decide what to make and became very indecisive.
