  • Sun soaking & hobby mash up ☀️ 🕶 ☀️ 🌬 Assembling pdf patterns outside calls for many paper weights 😂
My first #ogdencami is now cut up and ready to sew when I get back to London

  • TL;DR Here's my Make9 list, and I'm going to buy more fabric for some of these today.
.
So I'm in Toronto for the long weekend (my hometown), and we've got some time to go fabric shopping this afternoon before Easter dinner #2. Anyway, I was thinking of my #makenine list, and realized that I haven't publicly posted it anywhere (though I did decide on this back and January, and the fabric choices have changed slightly). Anywho, here it is. I tried to choose from fabrics and patterns that I already had and hadn't sewn. Let's not talk about the fabric that follows me home from @fabricationsott after work. .
Picture 2 & 3 match fabric to patterns in grid order (tap to see where I got the fabric). Picture 1 just looked better like that.
.
Top row: @hallapatterns Sunny Days Blouse, @sewhouse7 Tea House Dress, @patternsforpirates Grandpa Cardigan
Middle Row: @fillesamamanpdf Mimi Dress, @closetcase.patterns Kalle Shirt, @megannielsenpatterns Sudley Blouse
Bottom Row: @sewstraightpatterns Studio Jumpsuit, @stripedswallowdesigns Starry Night Top, @deer_and_doe_patterns Narcisse Pants.

  • Друзья, я несказанно рада, что вам настолько понравилось моё платье. Благодарю вас за такой невероятный отклик, добрые слова и множество ♥️♥️♥️ - всё это настолько важно для меня, моего творчества, это заряжает и мотивирует меня на дальнейшие действия - настоящая геометрическая прогрессия. Благодарю 😘
⠀
Многим приглянулась моя выкройка и посыпались вопросы относительно её создания: я бы с радостью поделилась ей, но, к сожалению, я не умею конструировать выкройки в электронном формате и не могу создать для вас выкройку учитывая весь размерный ряд. Однако, я могу помочь вам с созданием такого же платья практически с «0».
⠀
Я делюсь с вами самым большим трудом за всю свою швейную деятельность - разработкой этого платья: планом моделирования, фотографиями лекал и последовательностью сборки платья.
⠀
Руководствуясь моими наработками, вы сможете сделать своё идеальное платье, взяв за основу свою баковую конструкцию платья или подходящую вам выкройку платья-футляра с втачным рукавом.
⠀
Что касается объема по окату рукава:  многое зависит от того, какую ткань вы планируете использовать при пошиве, разные материалы ведут себя по-разному. Мой рукав торчал вверх и, глядя на платье спереди, выглядел приплюснуто.  Я решила эту проблему, соорудив подокатники из фатина. Фото подокатников, а также рукава с вариантами «ДО» и «ПОСЛЕ» прилагаю.
⠀
Буду рада, если эта публикация окажется вам полезной, а если возникнут какие-то вопросы - я с радостью отвечу на них в комментариях.

  • My #sewingdominique skirt is having it’s first outing today. I was inspired by one #stylequeen @dominique.major made aaaaages ago. I think every wardrobe needs a simple spotty skirt 🙌😀
And I can’t not mention my new @puptartlondon bag that is also having it’s first outing - love, love, love it 😍

  • Most of my machines are on wheels now which is a big improvement I can pull them out or store them it gives me more space. I can set up the ones I want for a project and put others to one side. Industrial machines only do a specific task it’s very different to domestics but they do that task well with ease if set up right #sewingmachines #imakemyclothes #sewingstudio

  • The linen crop top was a sucess! 😀 Swipe to see the progress. I'm wearing the mockup and half finished top with my nearly finished dawn jeans. The only thing left is to install the button, but I'm out of copper jeans buttons. 😥 Next up is a crop top in cupro. But that will have to wait until tomorrow, now we're heading to my parents house for Easter celebration. 😊 #eastersewcation2019 #påsksymester2019

  • Didn’t my mother-in-law @houkesgeeske create an amazing garden room? I’m wearing my #seamworkamber made from a remnant(!) of Stenzo jersey. I had about 1.5 metres left over after my last project with this fabric. I love it. Perfect sun dress, I think! I made a little cardigan to go with it (the #juliacardigan from @welcometothemousehouse made without the band).

  • So I made another #ddsirocco, but although I like the tapered leg of the pattern (indeed, I'm planning to further taper my first pair - if I can do it without making them look like old timey jodhpurs), for my second pair I have retreated to my wide-legged comfort zone. · 
Apart from the legs below the hip, this is the same as my previous Sirocco. I was so eager to make this pattern again immediately that I broke one of my own cardinal sewing rules when I cut this out: Never make a second version of a pattern without wearing the previous one for at least a whole day. (It's why I never batch sew - I want to try to improve the fit each time) · 
I don't know how much the different weight and drape makes, but the bodice on this one feels looser and looks blousier than my grey jumpsuit. I think maybe I should have taken out the inch I added to the bodice, or moved it to the rise instead. · 
Also, it may have helped to shorten the neck band a little, because quite often the cross-over slips open/slides down, revealing glimpses of bra. This happened in my first version too, but it seems worse in this more slippery fabric. · 
I really don't want to add a press stud or other fastening there, as the (relatively) easy on/off of this jumpsuit is one of my favourite things about the Sirocco pattern. I'll just continue to wear a cami/vest top underneath. · 
Having said all that, I do LOVE wearing this. It's elegant and fun and comfortable, and I can style it up with bright heels, or dress it down with trainers and a leather bomber jacket. · 
Pattern: the Sirocco jumpsuit from @deer_and_doe_patterns, with the legs (from bottom of pockets down) from the @closet case.patterns #Salliejumpsuit · 
Fabric: A mysterious drapey knit from @fabricanastore in Vancouver in early 2018. I think there's a viscose/rayon or modal component, and I believe it's an ITY. It's got a lovely soft peach skin feel and a good amount of stretch. It's a beautiful colour and feels great on. #fabricisthebestsouvenir

What do you think of this Sirocco x Sallie love child? Do you feel more confident in a wider leg? ·
