On this beautiful day I am honored to have four amazing sewists and bloggers with me on this tour.

Lori from Girls In The Garden

Lori created not only one, but TWO fabulous garments from three Itch to Stitch patterns.

Itch to Stitch Birthday Tour - Lori's hacked Kathryn/Idyllwild Peasant Top

“Hi, I am Lori from the Midwest, born and raised in the same small town.  Married to Mike and mom to 4 incredible, marvelous, wonderfully talented girls and now a “nana” to a cute little guy.   We have had the pleasure and joy of raising 4 these girls in this town. Sewing has been a part of my life since 7th grade home arts class.  I made an apron in class and that was the official start of my sewing passion.”

Alli from Allie J.


Itch to Stitch Birthday Tour - Allied's Hacked Lindy Skirt

Allie of allie J. uses vintage and modern patterns and fabric to cultivate “modern mid-century” style–a classic, wearable look with a retro influence. Allie adores the styles of the 1950s and 60s, so expect lots of shifts dresses and full skirts, coral, and leopard! Follow her at or on instagram @allie.m.jackson.

Katie from Creative Counselor

Itch to Stitch Birthday Tour - Katie's hacked Jacqueline Hoodie

“I am Katie. I’m a mom of three wonderful little tykes and a lawyer and corporate litigator at a large Midwestern firm.  That’s what I do for my day job — in my free time (ha! what mom really has any “free” time?) I like to sew, knit and be crafty. I decided to hack the Jacqueline Hoodie into a vest.  As much as I love sleeved sweatshirts, I’ve really been into vests this season, and hacking a jacket into a vest must be one of the easiest hacks out there!  I also changed the hood into a collar and left off a lot of the extra details for a more casual look.  I love the result — it will be perfect for fall and spring!”

Lucie from Love, Lucie

Itch to Stitch Birthday Tour - Lucie's Kathryn Top

“Hello, I’m Lucie. I’m a full time working mum living in Yorkshire, UK. I’ve had a sewing machine for as long as I can remember but it is only just over a year ago that I ventured into dressmaking after a lifetime of making soft furnishings and gifts for myself, friends and family. I have learnt so much over the last year and have recently fallen in love with stretch fabrics so the Kathryn was a perfect choice for me. I think I may well have sewn up my very best work in this top. I love it!”
