Twist on a Basic with Lladybird and A Little Gray // Stretch Yourself

This series is sponsored by Baby Lock. For over 40 years,  Babylock has been dedicated to the love of sewing by creating machines for sewing, embroidery, quilting and serging – all with ease-of-use, high quality and a touch of elegance.


To wrap up our rad guest posters our last ladies are embellishing or doing a twist on a basic.  Embellishing or varying a basic is when we get to take our homemade garments from cool to special, where we get to stamp our individuality all over it and make it personal and unique. Go see Lauren’s amazing front-hand pocketed tee at Lladybird  (it’s a variation of the Renfrew tee!!)

And hop over to Jessica’s for her super cute embroidered  (!!) rainbow road leggings at A Little Gray.
