  • Swipe to see what I used to make this refashion happen!

I am so excited to partner with @ritdye for this transformation because not only have I been using #ritdye for the past 9+ years, but also because I think dyeing clothes is THE EASIEST way to refashion, as it gives a whole new personality to the fabric and many times it looks like a completely different piece!

I definitely did some sewing to this upcycle😉 but if you already have a piece with the right fit and design, all you need to do is dye it for a complete transformation.

Have you ever tried dyeing? If not, what scares you about dyeing?

  • When I was younger I struggled forming friendships. I would over-think situations and would blow up when I came across difficulties. 
But over the last 2 years I’ve really found my ‘tribe’. People who I have instantly clicked with and have brought so much sunshine into my life. ☀️Every sewing event I attend I find more people who make me smile and my list of friends is growing. I’ve also connected with so many people through the internet (that outweighs all the bad things said about social media). Thank you to every single person who has brought sunshine into my life. These ladies are just a small selection of the wonderful ‘tribe’, you guys are absolutely amazing ❤️

  • It's been awhile since I've had a sewing hangover but the #rosemarywrap was totally worth it. I woke up at midnight a few days ago with the idea that I would just print the pattern and piece it together while the kids were asleep and therefore unable crash my paper party, as they have been known to do. Once I had the pages printed, the next thing I knew it was 5am and I was wrapping a new skirt around my waist, hot off the machine. Luckily, a sewist's high is just as good (better than, really) as a runner's high so when my kids woke up at 6am I was able to ride that high until nap time, flaunting my skirt the whole time 🙌🏾. As usual, @sarkirsten has unleashed another incredibly beautiful pattern into the world, and it will be made again and again. Oh and the top is my tester version of the#chamomilecrop in the narrow strap view :-)

P.s. My daughter insisted her snake be modeled with my skirt. I respect her artistic direction.

  • I’ve been feeling a bit stressed out lately. Low sew-jo and many self imposed sewing “obligations” may seem like such a luxurious problem to have right?

I have 5 projects I “have” to finish before the 30th:

@annaallenclothing #demeterdress for the #swapsharesew challenge

@tillybuttons #sewingindigo - @ellenrustenbiz #straightskirt - @tillybuttons #sewingrosa for @minervadotcom blogposts

@irmaandmay #frankiidress pattern testing the larger sizes.

And I have hardly sewn anything in October! So today I took the bull by the horns and got myself organised. Which is nothing but a little miracle. I took a numerology test once, and it said I was 90% creative mess, which sums me up pretty accurately🤣
.
I’ve made a plan with a time table, have printed and cut out the pdf patterns and am going to put the sheets together and cut out my size tonight and tomorrow. Also hopefully finish the Rosa shirt as that is so close to finish😍
.
So now I can see that I have plenty of time and no need for stressing! *sigh of relief*💆🏻‍♀️
.
Do you do this too? Getting stressed up only to see that all it takes is some good old organisation wizzarding? Have a lovely evening! Onwards!

  • I started sewing in 2010 when my second daughter was born, but I rarely sewed clothes. I would make baby carriers, quilts, stuff for my house, mama cloth, diapers, and sooo many other things. Something switched at the end of 2016, and I thought, “why don’t I make myself some joggers and t shirts.” I just wanted a few comfortable things to wear around the house. I had been a stay at home mom for almost 7 years at that point, and it was becoming so difficult to shop for clothes with my then 4 kids in tow. So, I bought some of my first pdf patterns, one of them being the  @greenstylecreations brassie joggers. I surprised myself with how easy they were to make and adjust. They looked far from frumpy, and I wanted a pair to wear everyday and a pair to wear to bed every night 😂 Fast forward to today, and I’ve been back to sewing one of my favorite patterns again and of course I feel so nostalgic. It’s the pattern that made me feel I could make myself a whole wardrobe of clothes!! 🙌🏼
.
.
Today’s blogpost is day 1 of the brassie and iron jogger sew along. ✂️ I have a video showing you how I adjust the pattern (I am 5’2” with muscular calves) and talking about fabric choice, and the blogpost contains other things I think would be helpful for those who want to make a pair. I think the timing is perfect to make some cozy pants for the upcoming colder months! The link is in my bio to read more! I also have info about the prizes from our sponsors @greenstylecreations and @the.styled.magnolia .

#FAMILYLIFE 👪 >>>SWIPE>>> Gar nicht so einfach mit unserem kleinen Wirbelwind und mit Selbstauslöser ein Bild hinzukriegen, auf dem wir alle auch noch einigermaßen hübsch gucken. Aber irgendwie sind das ja wir, so wie wir sind, immer in Action. Lang hab ich euch warten lassen auf die Hoodies. Genäht im März passen sie uns Gott sei Dank immer noch. Mein Bauch ist jetzt allerdings schon etwas größer, als auf den Bildern. Aber vielleicht schaff ich es ja demnächst aktuelle Bilder zu zeigen, statt 4 Wochen alte ;) Gut Ding will eben Weile haben. 
Vernäht habe ich einen Sweat von @stickandstyle und wie ihr seht ist jeder Hoodie anders gestaltet. Bei Henrys "Monster Hoodie" wurde ich inspiriert durch einen Pulli von H&M. Mein liebster Herr BassStich bekam einen Hoodie mit seinem Wunschplott … für alle, denen die Hieroglyphen nix sagen, das ist eine Motorradschaltung. 😉 Und mein Hoodie ist durch das wechselbare Pailettenpatch ein Stimmungsbarometer "Lucky-ON oder OFF?" Selten schaffen wir es unsere Hoodies im Alltag gemeinsam zu tragen. Aber wenn, dann bin ich so stolz, dass meine Männer sie so gerne tragen und sich darin wohlfühlen. Muss ich wohl noch einen nähen für unseren baldigen Familienzuwachs 😋
Hier noch alle Infos zu den Schnitten und co.: ▪️Herr BassStich: Raglanshirt Tom von @pattydooblog ,  Plotterfolie von @happyfabric.de , Plottdatei von mir
▪️Mein Hoodie:  Oversizehoodie von @kibadoo, Pailettenpatch und Webband von  @wunderpop.designstudio
▪️Henrys Hoodie: Schnitt: Raglan-Hoodie @brindilletwig , Unterteilungen von mir 🙂
Ihr Lieben, ich wünsche euch eine wundervolle Woche! Und erzählt doch mal, ob ihr Partnerlookfans seid oder lieber individuell unterwegs seid? ;) Fühlt euch gedrückt, eure Suse!

Jeg er samtidig igang med at sy nogle løse plissé bukser til jer. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Begge designs vil I se mere til snart 🥰

  • Proudest make so far. It made the denim jacket making feel a walk in the park in comparison! I still have the buttonholes to go but jillypops2 is taking care of it until I feel brave enough to tackle them. This is the McCall's 5525 made in the largest pattern size on my envelope but is  definitely a teeny bit snug. I may just do one line of buttons/buttonholes instead of the traditional trench coat set up.

  • I didn't plan to be away from social media for this long. It just happened that one week became two weeks and before I knew it, I've been away for a month plus (not cool🙈). A special s/o to y'all for checking up and staying with me.🙌😍💖.
*
I must confess that the introvert in me sometimes gets the better of me and I ask myself "girl, what are you doing on social media?". Well, the answer is pretty simple: I am showing up for you my friends who continue to show me love in this journey and I'm learning to enjoy the fun that comes with being social. Won't be here without you!
*
Btw, in the past few weeks that I've been away, I completed some amazing sewing projects which I will update you on. I must say it feels great to be back!
*
Happy Thanksgiving to my fellow Canadian friends. Hope you had a good one.

  • I still meet a lot of people that think sewing is what our grandmas used to do. Oh are they wrong ... you can sew fashionable garments - even the looks from the High Street.

Today’s blog post is all about recreating the look of current trends sold by popular fashion retailers, such as Zara or Anthropologie.

Link to the blog is in the bio in my profile.
