Blog hop with Claire of Hoopes Park Studios

I came across Claire’s blog via Sew Mama Sew, and have loved looking through her archives.  I like her projects and her style, but I especially appreciate her frank discussions of body image and ways to make clothes work for a variety of bodies.  A recent post that I thought was really neat was this one about adding an invisible zipper to pant inseams to make an artificial leg easily accessible without removing the trousers.  Clever and useful.  Love it.

Claire made a great fall-weight Weekend Rambler Skirt for our blog hop, so without further ado, click over to Hoopes Park Studios to see what she has to say about it!



Here’s the rest of the schedule if you’d like to catch up on any you’ve missed:

9/3: Morgan at Thread Theory

9/10: Beth at Sew 110 Creations

9/17: Meg at Cookin’ and Craftin’

9/24: Claire at Hoopes Park Studios

10/1: Teri at Fa Sew La

10/8: Maris at Sew Maris


It’s so much fun to see what everyone has made!  If you’ve made one of our designs and you wouldn’t mind sharing, drop us a line at with a picture!
