  • 🌻 work in progress. Cannot wait till I have a dress form for these types of fittings but still doing good! The pattern for this dress has been self drafted as I go inspired by a RTW dress. The fabric is some type of bubble crepe from @joann_stores I still have the buttons, bottom ruffle and hem up the sleeves a bit but I really like the way it looks.

  • Do you make sketches for your future items?📝
⠀
It’s an interesting and inspiring process! ⠀
1⃣  You can dream about a new item
2⃣  You can try different colors
3⃣  You can try different decor
4⃣  Changing of the model is much easier on the paper ⠀
For making this process easier you can use our PDF Sewing Planner, link in BIO⬆⬆⬆

  • Is this how you sew??! 😆😂 I am not quite sure about the ‘make yourself as attractive as possible’ part by the way - I am sewing.. how more attractive can I get??! 🤷🏻‍♀️ #sewingadvice

  • ✨Let’s give it up to our finale piece as captured through the lens of @reqshotit. ✨ .
✨This dress had a mono strap cut across the bustline that graciously swept across the model, @leilaesthy_ ’s back to form this elegant derivative of a Bishop sleeve. ✨ .
✨For us here in the atelier, this dress is giving us life. What do you love about this piece?✨

  • Hello! Been quiet as my gorgeous sister @jennypennyjones is visiting us 👯‍♀️ We went to an evening brunch (I know, I KNOW - a total contradiction in terms but I’m afraid you start to accept these things living here 🤷🏻‍♀️). I wore my old faithful pink #intrepidboilersuit by @aliceandcopatterns again - such a perfect sewing pattern and still so on-trend 🙌🏻 Put it together with glittery rose gold boots and this unbelievably marvellous holographic bag which my sis gave to me 💘 Another #outfitrepeater moment which brought me great joy!! Should I make another boilersuit?! What fabric would you use? Hope you’re all having a wonderful week ♥️

  • Sew, I’m still ploughing through previous makes! 
This was made for my daughter as a toile for her prom a few years ago to see if she liked the shape and style. A wee bit decadent making a toile out of silk 🤪  hence lining and finishing it off completely! Not really a toil at all 🤩

Unfortunately she decided she preferred a different style, this now leaves me with a lovely dress but no one to wear it! I have an idea up my sleeve so it won’t be homeless for too long now.

It’s made from beautiful satin silk which drapes and swishes beautifully 👗 The pattern was #style2532, I actually made this pattern back in the 90s for a BUPA Christmas ball so maybe it could be called #retro 👗👗👗 If you flick through the photos you will see the actual dress she wore, this is featured quite early on in my Instagram feed if you would like to see more.

  • It’s been busy in our house for quite a few days. I’ve managed to complete a couple of projects that I can show you soon. 🙌🏼
•
Today I’ve been working on my next project for the @mariadenmarksewing Sewing Life Magazine. I’ve got it all cut out and ready to photograph as I’m sewing but do you know what my favourite thing is? 🤔🤔🤔When there’s enough fabric left over to make something to match for Rosie! I’ve got about 1/4 of a yard left which will be perfect for a little person garment!

  • My #ootd is my first dress I sewed after I came back to sewing in September 2013! Say what!!! It’s the #ddsureau from @deer_and_doe_patterns! I even didn’t have an Instagram account at that time so I never posted the “just finished” dress. 
Although nearly 6 years old I still love this dress and I wear it on a regular basis. When I came home from work this afternoon my husband said: “Hmm, nice dress baby!” 😂 👉🏻 Swipe to see some moments from the past when I wore this dress!
