The verdict is in...#v9075 was SEW VERY EASY!!! ... at least somewhat lol 😂🤣😂 . My muslin seemed very easy to make...perhaps just a evenings worth of work. I made the muslin from old sheets. Yep, I even repurpose bedding!! 😂😂😂 Check out the last picture for a good laugh. . The actual garment made me sweat!!! 🤨🙄😅 I had so much trouble with the lining--- I kept stepping away from the project because I just couldnt figure it out. Several deep breathes and several glasses of wine later...I was done!!! . I see myself making this dress again in the near future. 😊😊 . . . . . #vogue #isew #sewingproject #hobby #fashionblogger #sewing #sewersofinstagram #sewingpatterns #sewingmachine #ilovesewing #sew #creativejuices #creative #creativity #creatives #handmadewardrobe #imadethis #lovetosew #reuse #create #diy #isewmyownclothes #imakemyownclothes #sewingproject #fashioninspo #handmadeisbetter #handmade #voguepatterns

Reversible no-tie apron is Mary Mulari Designs Crisscross Apron Pattern. One side is for serious fall baking and the other is Peanuts fabric for baking cookies with the grandkids and Snoopy.

in great contrast to the last garment I made, plz enjoy some grumpy pj glamour shots of these very comfortable self-drafted sweaties 👖 they have big big pockets and are a color I literally never wear bc I used thrifted fabric from @meccaeugene... body by mac n cheese ;) I see a very cozy winter ahead of me

I’m really resonating with the #sewfrosting 🍰 happening in the sewing community right now! I much prefer frosting to cake in my food and clothing choices. In all honesty probably over 75% of my sewing is frosting (fun, frivolous things even if they aren’t practical!) 👗🌈 I’m a life long maximalist, so even when sewing a more practical garment i always add a bit of frosting 🍰😍💖 currently making #sewingcleo denim overall dress from @tillybuttons ✨✨✨

I love this photo of @emilieanneszabo in these cream #persephonepants I made this past spring. Although this was taken during the springtime, I’m wondering how many are still wearing white/cream during the colder seasons? I definitely feel like you should be able to wear light colors all year round! Throwing on a chunky cardigan or sweater would be one way I would extend the wear of white pants.

Sewing during Halloween season is always insane and stressful, so I have been taking time in between sews to make Atlas a hat too!

finnnalllly posting about a dress I finished about a month ago. It took me that long to work up the nerve to hand wash & press all the silk again 😆 I sewed it for my oldest friends wedding. I am proud of it considering it was my first dress but obviously there is room for improvement! I literally finished the hem 30 min before we left for the airport 😬 it is #s1873 - a cynthia rowley pattern. I lowered the neckline and added 6 in length so its more midi/tea length. I cut a size 12 and did a FBA but I probably needed to just do a 10 with a FBA after all. It is made with silk taffeta I found at a local fabric outlet. I made a muslin from cotton scraps and used it to underline the bodice. I then lined the bodice in cotton sateen (aka an old pillowcase). The skirt is unlined but I wore it with a petticoat from my grandmother. I hand stitched the zipper (my 1st) and the hem - I dont have a zipper foot and then I was almost out of matching thread so both were out of necessity. Issues/lessons learned - read pattern review first (I missed the advice to omit the last pleat in the back and struggled bc of it), water is necessary to get out wrinkles in silk, understitch reallll close or it curls out/match the lining to your dress 🙈, pressing the zipper is not a step to skip bc youre scared of melting the zipper, and stitch slowly or you will have to rip out your waistline x4 😐 #sewing #handmadewardrobe #memade #isew #diyfashion #newbiesewist #ilovesewing #sewistsofinstagram #sewingwithsilk #silktaffeta

My Rhinebeck haul! I didn’t plan it, but everything I bought is very much in the same color scheme 😆This was my first Rhinebeck and it was so overwhelming in the best way possible 🍂🍁 #knitting #knittingaddict #knittersofinstagram #yarn #indiedyedyarn #rhinebeck #nysheepandwool #festival #haul #yarnstash #handmadewardrobe #knitstagram

I only use precise rigorous methods when sewing. 🤪 Trying to figure out how much sleeve to add to a #blaireshirt #makingitupasigo #sewinglove #imakemyclothes #handmadewardrobe #memadeeveryday

I’m in ❤️ with these makes!!! AH. They are everything I envisioned! I used @fridaypatterncompany #sunnytop and hacked it to have a mock-neck and 3/4 length sleeves. And can we talk about @peppermintmagazine and @inthefolds collaboration to make the STUNNING #peppermintbuttonupdress. 💁🏻‍♀️ I’ll be starting a sewing blog soon with all the details and modifications I made to these patterns. 😊💕All the fabric is from @joann_stores! The sunny top is made with a ribbed knit and the button up dress is made with a stretch corduroy. . . . . . . #sewmystyle2018 #patternstash #sewing #sewcialists #handmadeclothing #handmadewardrobe #sewingproject #millennialsewing #makersgonnamake #isewmyownclothes #isew #sewersofinstagram #happysewing #makeitsewcial #sewist #modernmakers #instasew #sewistsofinstagram #sewinglove #diy #crafty #ootd #sewinlove #sewnwithlove #indiepatterns #sewyourownclothes #handmadewithjoann #patternhacking

Heres the next one! The watermelon dress. Featuring some behind the scenes photos 😂😂 This is the #newlook 6447 and its a dress I made in a face to face class I took earlier in the year. I loved the pattern though the execution was not as good as i would have liked (which is fine, it was my first commercial pattern). The seams are all french seams which worked well however the neck finishing and zip could be better!

QUESTION // I’m making a robe and need some help choosing a fabric. As you know, robe dressing is totally fabulous right now and I really want to make something that could easily transfer from a day look (jeans & a tee) to a night look (over a black shift dress) and of course, at home because I’m dying for something more elevated in style than your basic old bath robe. 💃🏼 It’s all inspired by some lingerie I picked out at @mentionables_ , a body-positive, model free lingerie company that I’m really loving at the moment! 🙌🏻 So... now I need your help picking the fabric for my new robe dress: a fun chic print or a crushed velvet? What do you think? 🤷🏼‍♀️🤔 check out my ig stories for more my fabric info! #rivastyle #sewthelook #ad : : : : : #rivaladiva #sewmystyle2018 #inspiredbyinstyle #handmadewardrobe #sewersofinstagram #voguepatterns #stylecollective #seattlefashion #seattlefashionblogger #seattlestyle #makersmonday #diydress #diydressmaker #sewingproject #modestfashion #fashiondiary #sewingissexy #diyfashion #latinablogger #laparisienne #memade #sewcialists #sewingishaute

A little peek at the birthday dress magic I’m finally posting on the blog today. 🎂🔮 #v8901 #voguepatterns

im having a really hard time focusing on this space right now. lack of engagement because of uncontrollable algorithm shifts, weird timelines that make posting hard to analyze, feeds that basically duplicate my personal facebook rather than inspiration from fellow makers... i dunno, im not really into it right now. and im out of practice playing with my camera, which doesnt help. im not quite sure what my visual style is right now, which maybe is related to not knowing what people want to see or if theyre even seeing it. probably also has something to do with feeling like my house is a mess and not inspiring me to pull my camera out whenever i feel like it. and i have so much work thats under wraps and/or not ready yet and deserves my focus, coming up with consistently engaging and interesting posts isnt really my priority 🤷🏻‍♀️ --- none of this is to complain, just to explain why im not super engaged in this space right now. and to ask for your help! im starting to plan new classes and id love to hear what you want to learn. theres a link in my profile for a survey, and when you fill it out youll get a 50% off code for my ravelry store as a thank-you. its a win-win! and will maybe help me organize a big enough part of my brain to open up space for inspiration around here. okie doke, im heading back to paperwork world. hope your monday is rolling along smoothly 💕

Probably the best picture Ill get of them together 😅 I love these navy and bats raglan tees on my twin boys, I should make them more in these colors 😍💙💙 #SnowLilyModel #SnowLilyBoutique #handmadewardrobe #handmadeoutfit #handmadeclothing #custommade #madewithlove #mamamade #raglantee #brindilleandtwig #batsfabric #bats #mamamade #bigboys #brothers #twins #twinbrothers #twinboys #matching #twinoutfits #halloween #pumpkins #converse #blueeyes #lovemyboys

Another yellow sunny wall, but this time with a sunny day to go with it! Again featuring some #meganneilsenpatterns Ash jeans, cropped into jeans shorts! The back pocket detailing adds a little quirk to my me-made garments I think! Next jeans I think I might have to do ECG tracings just for a little bit of something different! #mnash #ashjeans #memade #handmadewardrobe #yellowwalls

Love this version of our #StaffordJacket that our friend Jeanne made. She said after seeing the lovely, fluffy selvage that appeared after washing the denim, she was inspired to feature it as a design element.

6 ways with a #hinterlanddress I have actually been living in this dress and the fabric goes perfectly with every colour in my wardrobe. . ☝️This is basically my spring capsule wardrobe. .

One of the best things about #sewing is you can make clothes you really like to wear. Ive worn this @tillybuttons #cocotop loads since I make it, its just so comfortable plus I just love the mustard fabric! 💕 Fabric purchased from @colessewingcentre during a @sewnotts meet up a while ago 😊 #sewingcoco #tillyandthebuttons #sewingblogger #funtimes #lovesewing #imademyclothes #handmadewardrobe #sewists

When it turns cold, I find myself reaching for my French Terry pieces over and over. My Jasper Sweater and this Butterick 6388 top are in heavy rotation at the moment. I have lots of FT plans ahead- I just need to find motivation. . #mahlicadesigns @mahlicadesigns #sewcialist #sewingblogger #handmadewardrobe

Last nights #draping experiment for a flared and pleated skirt! ✨Swipe to see the shape of the piece when taken off. .. I put the CF on the bias. I kept adding fullness until the side seam was on the straight grain, making for a front that when mirrored, will be a 3/4 circle! Now I have to get around to making it of course... Anyway it was fun regardless 💖

So the coolest thing ever happened when I was taking photos of the #b6413 dress I made. I made a cat friend!!! Plus, did you notice my dress has pockets?!!!!!

My #hinterlanddress by @sewliberated finally completed and photographed in time for the #hinterlandsewoff I have mixed feelings about this color and fabric on me, its too green and too busy and what not! I do love this beautiful pattern and I can see why everyone wants to make a dozen of these!

Taking a well deserved knit break in (a freshly made with clean sheets) bed!! 💆🏻‍♀️ Besides washing all the bedsheets and making all the beds, I did a major purge/organization of my son’s toys and STUFF and man, does it feel good.

Not too long ago, if I made a mistake in sewing or crafting I would just, as @timgunn says, “make it work.” Sometimes making it work leads to happy accidents. But sometimes mistakes are... mistakes. Mistakes that should be corrected. Today I hand-stitched(!) a sleeve to the wrong side of a shirt. This task took me almost the entire episode of last night’s Doctor Who (so good). I reeeeeally wanted to make it work. I looked at my work and realized that I had also cut my fabric against the grainline, as opposed to with. I took this as a sign that I needed to fix my mistake. I needed to remove the bad sleeve and cut new sleeves. So that’s what I did. And whenever I wear this shirt, it will mean more to me because I took my time. @modernpunch // #slowfashion #slowfashionoctober #handmadewardrobe #memade #imadethis #alabamachanintshirt #alabamachaninstyle

And for my last photo from my lovely holiday to Kefalonia- my @inthefolds Peppermint jumpsuit! I cut a size B and didn’t make any alterations until I put it on near the end and found the crotch was way too low 😂 I think I managed to rescue it though! I used a 100% cotton seersucker from @johnlewisandpartnerswhich was a joy to sew. I really love this outfit with my @po_zu sneakers, it makes me want to run and jump around! 😂 #handmadewardrobe #memade #peppermintjumpsuit #sewing #instasew #sewingaddict #isewmyownclothes

More and more knitwear hitting the shop these day. Spent today finishing the first TEJEDA sweater in my own SUAVE chunky yarn. It’s soaking in the bath tub now and FINGERS CROSSED it will be dry by tomorrow evening (preferably golden hour time) so I can photoshoot myself wearing it. 📸 In the meantime, here’s a golden oldie of that BENTAYGA hat, for which I’ll send out a call for testers soon-ish. If you’re interested in test knitting for this (or future) pattern(s), send me a DM with your email address, so I can manually subscribe you to my tester pool emailing! ➰ And if you’re here for the knitwear or the daily knitting fun, use the link in my bio to subscribe for the normal newsletter.

Bar tacks and grommets and snaps, oh my! I am so enjoying the experience of this very deep-dive high-concentration project, and it’s hella fun occasionally having to take to it with a hammer 🔨! I’m trying to get into the habit of keeping good notes as I go about projects like this as I feel like I waste a lot of time going, “now, what’s a good setting for a bar tack?”, goggling it, then having a quick check of email and instagram, then suddenly 20 minutes has disappeared along with my concentration. So I now keep my notebook handy for notes like these, as well as washi tape notes on my machine for super-quick access. The deep teal of the shell is really hard to capture (hence the lining constantly creeping into shot) but it is a glorious colour, much like the sea of Te Whanganui-a-Tara. —————————————— #memade #imakemyclothes #sewistsofinstagram #indiepatterns #modernsewist #sewing #welovesewing #instafashion #sewingclothes #handmadewardrobe #dressmaking #handmadeeveryday #sewinglife #weekendsewist #sewersgonnasew #sewingproject #bibbitybobbitybuttons #berninanz #welovetosew #memadecombo #nzsews #sewnz @closetcase.patterns #drapersfamily #closetcasepatterns #kellyanorak

That’s my winter wardrobe sorted! 😁 6 new pieces of yummy fabric from @maeve_dressfabrics 💙 I didn’t pick the most exciting fabrics in the world but I’m all about the solids this season. (Trying to be a grown up!) These are jerseys and French Terry’s destined to become 2 tops, 2 cardigans and a Halifax sweater. The charcoal FT with tiny coloured flecks will become my first Grainline Morris Blazer. Now to find some sewing time!!

I’m wearing my #taborvneck today, version 5, and it’s sooo good! I do have lots of fabric notes but did not make any adjustments at all to the pattern because @sewhouse7 is amazing! Fabric notes: this is an acrylic/wool blend from @stylemakerfabrics, 50% stretch. Possibly out of an overabundance of caution I took a ton of extra steps for this unique fabric because the thick yarns seemed like they would unravel if I didn’t. 1. I serged all edges and then washed on wool setting, laid flat to dry. 2. I bought 1 yard, pattern calls for 7/8, and with a few inches of shrinkage I was still able to fit all pattern pieces no problem for size 4. 3. I traced the pattern on the back side of the fabric with chalk and then cut 3/8” black knit interfacing strips for all edges of pattern before cutting out... except I did use the included interfacing pieces for shoulders and center of neck. 4. I used the acrylic setting on my iron. No steam! I did not get any shine or melting or shrinking this way, when I needed to press for a longish time I also used a cloth between iron and fabric. 5. Because of 4, the interfacing was a little loose in a few places and I was concerned the thick yarns on the right side would unravel when handling for sewing so I also ran a three thread (single needle, wanted < than the 3/8” SA so I didn’t have to try to match sewing lines) serger stitch along all the edges. Except for the v in front and the sides of the neckline, which I ran a straight stitch down at about 1/4”. 6. Another reason for 5: this chunky knit seems too bulky to serge seams together and press to side so I wanted to be able to press open on hems and shoulders. 7. After all that it came together so smoothly and quickly with a super stretch stitch and walking foot on my regular machine. No puckering at v at all. I feel like this fabric was made for version 5. It is a little scratchy but I always intended to wear it over a turtleneck or in this case a tightish #renfrewtop. #stylemakerfabrics #sewhouseseven #sewhouse7 #sewingover40 #handmadewardrobe

Finally made a blue denim pair of #gingerjeans ! I am really happy with the fit and as always with #closetcasepatterns the instructions were 👌🏻. The 1st pair I sewed was so big, I sized down to a 12. Probably could size down again to a 10 as it is very baggy at the end of the day. The fabric is a stretch indigo denim from @sacres_coupons and the hardware is a @closetcase.patterns kit. | | | | | #sewing #sew #sewistsofinstagram #sewcialists #sewersofinstagram #handmade #handmadebasics #handmadewardrobe #autumncapsule #handmadecloset #consciousfashion #handmadefashion #makersmovement #makersforfashrev #ecofashion #imakemyownclothes #isew #iwearwhatisew #couture #handmadejeans

I have been busy sewing Christmas gifts, so Im not able to post much (will have lots to post after Christmas!). Here is a recent make for myself - finally getting to the Archer #grainlinearcher by @grainlinestudio - what took me so long? Made this simple black cotton version as a test toile for size and to test out contrast collar stand, etc. Love the fit! This cotton is probably a bit stiffer than I would want next time. Already have a beautiful navy rayon lined up for the next one. . . . #grainlinestudio #handmadewardrobe #imakemyclothes #isew #lovetosew #sewingiscool #wearhandmade #memade#diywardrobe
