  • New dress 👗 with funky bell sleeves 😍
I used the “slash and spread” method to adapt my standard sleeve pattern and I’m really pleased how it turned out. 
I made the dress in a crepe from @misanretail which I love for work stuff because it looks smart but is really comfy. It also comes in loads of bright colours which is great for a colour blocker like me. 
On reflection, I wish I’d made the dress as one piece rather than bodice & skirt... but I was making it up as I went along 🧐 ... next time!

  • These new tapestries are irresistible😍😍😍
Each one is only £15.95 a metre! 
The colours in each one are so pretty, I could see a sofa covered in one of them, or even a just a cushion✂️🧵 #abakhanfabrics #fabrics #crafts #hobby #makeithandmade #crafty #felting #felt #wool #yarns #embroidery #knitting #crochet #sewing #stitches #diy #haberdashery #madetomeasure #fabricaddict #dressmaking #sewcialist #sewcreative #sewingproject #memade #custommade #seamstresslife #diyfashion #handmadefashion #seamstress #janomemakes

  • Such a pretty blouse; the pussy bow blouse. Surprisingly easy sew too. 
Now I should knit a sweater or vest to wear with it 🤔 as suggested by @luxstrik

Fabric is viscose from @atelierbrunette bought at @tissusandyou

  • I finally made @helens__closet Winslow culottes and I LOVE THEM! @patsypoomakes and I made these as a buddy sew a couple of weekends ago and even twinned with our colour choice. 👭 I made view C in a straight size 6 to get a nice snug fit at my waist and there's plenty of ease everywhere else, even for my bottom! 🍑 This fabric is something else - it's tencel twill from @merchantandmills and it's 350gsm, which gives it a beautiful, weighty drape. It has a soft, deep twill and the colour is absolutely gorgeous! 💕 I can see these getting loads of wear as the weather warms up and I suspect there will be other pairs of Winslows in my wardrobe soon...!🧵

  • this packable rain jacket was the initial project that basically propelled me back to sewing back in May 2018. it went something like this: went to ikea 〰️ spotted a cute shower curtain 〰️ borrowed kids’ sewing book pattern from the library lol 〰️ drafted for adult sizing 〰️ sew 〰️ realised its too thin to keep us dry and thus will probably never wear 🤦🏻‍♀️🤷🏻‍♀️ but had fun in the process anyway #oldmakes

  • Possibly the most teacher I’ve ever felt. This midi, high neckline, pleated, geometric patterned dress just screams “Let me educate your children. I know shapes and primary colours”. Or something like that. 
It was a journey to get this dress to this level. Firstly - I cut down the middle of the front panel thinking it was the back panel and ended with two big gashes. I I decided to zig zag them up and pleat the skirt. I’ve made 7 of this pattern - so versatile - and have made a small change to each. The cut made me do pleats (which hide the gashes well I think) so that was the fun small change. 
BUT when @spotlightstores came and did their cover shoot with me we used this as a WIP in the BG, but somehow in the process we lost a sleeve. I put a shout out if anyone had a spare scrap they could donate and @danijelasews sent me the perfect sized piece for my sleeve. However, with the last few months hustle I haven’t been able to finish it. So yesterday - I got off my lazy ass and added in the sleeve and what do you know, it took all of 15 minutes and was ready to wear today. 
Fabric is by @jeninuferu for @hansenprintandtex. 
Pattern #9197 from Vogue

  • Ooooh it’s all coming together 🙌 this was one of those pieces where I wasn’t sure what I was doing but I was sure of what I wanted. I was inspired by a semi similar lingerie design but just kept imagining something modified for swimwear. Shout out to doing sketches before, at first wanted a v-neck but after the sketch decided on the straight neck. The base of the pattern was the poppy one piece from @edgewaterave with a higher cut front and back. I still need to attach the shoulder straps to the back and sew one more lace up tie for the front but I tried it on already annnd 🔥🔥

  • l i n e n  n a p k i n s 💫

Using my fabric scraps is really not what I like the most. But I always keep the medium size scraps and think forever what I could make with that other than #scrunchies and bias. And so I created these cute linen napkins yesterday with my #robealesia and my #alexandriapegtrousers scraps.
Cute, better than paper towel and eco-friendly 👌🏼
What do you make with fabric scraps? .

  • Mccalls 7955 is my latest make. This top took 2 hours. Very easy! I made the longer version D. To this make I added elastic to the unruched side to balance out the ruching, as I thought it looked too flat on that side. I will definitely make it again and in the shorter versions! Instead of cording I created my own cord to match the fabric. Really pleased with this make and I’ll do a review in stories tomorrow!

  • ✳️Hecho por mi✳️ El reto era difícil pues tenía una idea y para hacerla realidad debía sacar partes de tres moldes diferentes, la tela preciosa es una seda que hace muy ligero el vestido a pesar del volumen y bueno, todo resultó (tan bien que me lo quiero hacer para mi).

A la clienta le encantó!!!💖💖

  • My valentines shirt, over a week late! 🤪
.
Years ago, I would rarely see the end of a project.  I would become overwhelmed by a step I didn’t understand, or not like how it was turning out.  I wouldn’t want to do all that seam ripping, and maybe by the time I picked it back up I felt uninspired by the fabric and design.
.
Now I gift myself time, patience and grace to finish a project.  And it gets done. 💜
.
What helps you see it through to the end of your projects, especially the challenging ones?

  • A bunch of you were asking about the offset grommets on the 18th Century stays I made recently. They're for spiral lacing - only one ribbon, in one side and out the other, around & around and tied with a slip knot tucked in at the top.

Since I delivered the pieces I made to @missfrostage today and we tried all everything together (including her bunny tail), I took photos to help everyone understand the spiral lacing.

I can't wait to see her con pics in a few weeks complete with the ears she'll be making!

  • Spending this weekend finishing up one of the pieces for my #thegreatmodulesewalong, this is Simplicity 6107 with some modifications. I omitted the waistband because my fashion fabric is plaid and I didn't want to deal with the plaids not matching or looking wonky. I don't have any petersham ribbon so I used hair canvas and a stiff woven interfacing. I've also added a lining and put the zipper on the side instead of the back. 
Today I stitched the seams down, installed the zipper, stitched the hem, added the lining....and a whole lot more. I also watched Pretty in Pink while stitching, can I just say I love, love, love that movie. I still want Andie's wardrobe. 
What did you stitch this weekend?

  • Let’s talk about your handmade wardrobe for a second... When you choose a pattern/fabric are you thinking of how it works into your current wardrobe? A couple years ago I made the decision to pick a color pallet and try to build a wardrobe around that so that each item I made would automatically slot into the wardrobe I was building. I also focused on incorporating solids with my prints so that things could layer. I L❤️VE print and felt that if I was going to spend good money on fabric then it better have an AH-MAZING print, but soon realized that I needed good basics to mix and match with. I know I always go on and on about getting the fit of your clothes right, but it’s also useful to build a thoughtful closet with a mixture of basics, sprinkled in with some fun. What are your thoughts? Have you ever tried doing something like this. It’s similar to the ideas in #curatedcloset . For me it’s created a more peaceful existence with my closet and also gives me purpose when shopping or making.

  • I’m officially naming this make after my sewing pal @the.polka.dot.palace ⁣
A little while back, she shared the most gorge ‘And Other Stories’ needlecord mini dress in her stories and I’ve been secretly plotting ever since. ⁣
⁣
This beauty is a slightly modified @tillybuttons Rosa dress which I made into a straighter skirt, with short sleeves and a matching belt too. ⁣
⁣
More recently I’m steering more towards makes like this in my wardrobe because let’s face it, she’s an instant classic! #sewingrosa

    A little while back, she shared the most gorge ‘And Other Stories’ needlecord mini dress in her stories and I’ve been secretly plotting ever since. ⁣

    This beauty is a slightly modified @tillybuttons Rosa dress which I made into a straighter skirt, with short sleeves and a matching belt too. ⁣

  • Here are the next 5 blocks for the #meadowlandqal ! This week the question is what is your favourite step in the quilting process? - mine is the designing and thinking up phase, and also making the first block, oh and I also love quilting and then I also like hand sewing the binding ! In fact lots of steps are my favourite ! 😂 My least favourite step is making the binding and machine sewing on one side -at this point I’m so close to finishing and all I have left to do after this step is a few hours in front of the tv hand sewing it on- so it’s an annoying middle step that I just want to be done ! 😊 what’s your favourite and least favourite step in the quilting process ?
