  • Major progress made over the last couple of days which is great because this needs to be finished tonight! 😅😬😂
.
.
The zip is in and I have the back seam allowance to finish as well as level off and hem the skirt. Even though the process has been RUSHED (to say the least) I am still rather happy with how it’s turning out. My only regret is cutting the skirt and bodice back on a double layer of fabric. Even though it was such a time saver, I really regret not taking the time to match the floral pattern on the fabric. No, c’est la vie! 🤷🏼‍♀️😅 .

Swipe right to see the Hong Kong seam finish! It’s so cheery and makes me smile whenever I see it. ❤️❤️❤️

  • Just finished #sewingdelphine Delphine skirt from #loveatfirststitch @tillybuttons book.

Minor pucker at bottom of invisible zip, one waist and with the cord nap wrong (oops) and some slightly wobbly seams but it's #memade! The patterned cord from @calicolaine hides a multitude of sins!

Do you eventually get over the fear of your own clothes falling to pieces on you? 😆

  • 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

  • Anzeige | Yes - da ist das gute Teil. Dazu habe ich aus dem schönen Stoffen von @tillisy_official noch neue Geschirrhandtücher genäht. Man könnte glatt meinen, dass das Verschwendung ist. So schöner Stoff für Handtücher. Ich freue mich aber jetzt jedes Mal auf neue, wenn ich in die Küche komme und die Tücher hängen da. Da hüpft das #herz 💕🌷#scandichome (pattern: @mavenpatterns)

  • 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 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? ·

  • A tale of shorts
☀️Finding shorts that fit my body shape is always been tricky so I decided to make my own last summer
☀️After quite a lot of research, I settled on the @truebias #emersonshorts pattern and... WHAT A DELIGHT of a pattern!
☀️I loooove the flattering flat front waistband and the pleats, the easy elastic band, the length... I made the low waist version.
☀️I used grey linen to wear it with any of my signature summer neon pastel colours 😉, which was a bit tricky to sew but I love how easy to wear and versatile it is.
☀️highly recommend! Worn it all summer and so happy to start wearing it again!
☀️I’m actually now making a cropped pants version ☺️.

  • ブルゾン完成😃
今日は一日中気持ちいい快晴☀️
でも気温は11度。
まだまだ肌寒い北海道では出番ありあり👌裏地もしっかり付いてます!
☆
このツイードは、
#日暮里繊維街 の#ナガト さんで、軒先のワゴンに入ってたもの!なんと500円🤣買った時からこのブルゾン作ろう決めてました!
☆
袖口は本来ハンドニット。もちろん時間がかかるので、黒のリブに。適当に採寸して切ると、伸びがなく、パツパツ。袖口とウエスト部分にツイードを挟んで幅広に。とりあえず何とかなったので良しとしましょう👌
☆
さぁ、次は何作りましょう。
作りたいものたくさんある〜😊

  • Fold over elastic is so convenient for use in place of narrow bands or on kids singlets. When you use it unstretched it gives a clean finish where you want a bit of stretch but don't need support.

It takes a little practice but it's cheap and fun and once you've mastered it the possibilities are endless!
Pretty excited to have this product in stock now!

  • When in a forest as magical as the Forest of Dean it seems only right to read something equally as magical 🐉 Also brought this book as it’s 850 pages so there’s no danger of running out of book to read!
