It's Friday, yay! Today is the first day of the Women's Issie pattern tour! Over the next ten days, seventeen talented sewers will be sharing Issie tops and dresses they have made for themselves or their older daughters.  And some will be twinning with their younger ones!! Throughout the tour (until Monday September 3) you can receive a 10% discount on all sewpony patterns with the coupon code: WOMENSISSIE10. You can purchase the pattern in a bundle or on its own in both English and Dutch.  Find the options here.  Today Jill from Kneesocks and Goldilocks, Mijke from Sew it Curly and Maaike from Maaidesign.

Jill from Kneesocks and Goldilocks makes AMAZING things for her self and her children.  She lives in Canada and we partnered up last year when we worked together on the Juliette dress and top.  Jill is super lovely and everything she makes is just fabulous!  She make herself an Issie top with the Rose collar and for her little daughter June she made a dress with the Rose collar.  Head over to Jill's IG account to see more photos and to see June's lovely dress!

Mijke from the awesome IG account, Sew it curly, is another big inspiration of mine. As you know she is the model for the Women's Issie pattern and has hands down made the most Issie tops/dresses of anyone I know!  Mijke lives in the Netherlands with her husband, son and daughter.  She makes amazing clothes for herself and her kids.  This sleeveless Issie top with Rose collar looks perfect with her cool jeans!  Head over to Mijke's IG account to see more photos of this Issie top in Paris!

Maaike is yet another lovely friend and sewer.  She runs the amazing web shop - Maaidesign where she stocks beautiful European fabrics as well as haberdashery and sewing patterns.  Maaike is Belgian but now lives in Australia, and recently moved with her family to my home state (although she lives around 6-7 hours from me).  Maaike makes some great stuff for herself and her kids.  she made a lovely winter Issie top with the turtle neck option in gorgeous Atelier Brunette knit.  Head over to Maaike's IG account to see more!!

Thank you Jill, Mijke and Maaike for kicking of the tour with such lovely sewing!!  Come back on Monday for more Issie inspiration!!
