I made an @itchtostitch Zamora blouse last weekend for a job interview this week. It's quick to make and has nice shaping. I removed one of the two waist darts. The only thing I don't like is the way the outer two pin tucks release on my chest. But I should just be able to take a few stitches out to fix that.
I'm so proud of how this turned out! Definitely some mistakes but overall a great way to get my feet wet. Can't wait to try it again and have some "me-made" clothes in my closet. @grainlinestudio #scouttee#isew#diylife#memade
#miymarch17 'lounge'. I am a massive fan of anything comfy and I think these Ultimate Pyjamas would make an excellent addition to a Sunday morning. I would make a matching Molly Top to go with. Definitely on the sewing list for next A/W 😊
Dyeing some nylon tricot in preparation for a matching bra/panty set. This is Dharma Acid dye in #461 avocado.
I never get tired of seeing all that dye get sucked up into the fabric! So cool🙄
I don't think the picture does the finished product justice, I blame the photographer @sawyerrshouse but I love the skirt, a welcome addition to my work wardrobe @feesewcrafty @thatssewmonica #simplicity8175#sewyourview#memade#sewyourown
Repost from @thatssewmonica and @feesewcrafty . Finally able to fully complete my first sewing project of the year. I will definitely be making more of these and probably tackle the culottes. Thanks Felicia and Monica for this challenge #simplicity8175#sewyourview#memade#sewyourown
My @mccallpatterncompany #b6453 is looking gorgeous so far! Next video in the @gertie18 sew along will be out later this week 😝 in this photo you can see that I switched the slider straps to tie straps- mostly because while sliders are beautiful and look super luxe (especially if you have a pretty color piece)-- they end up slipping and sliding on nearly all my clothes. I thought the ties would be more flirty 😘
Handling Monday like... ;) Check out my latest #DIY - it's a super simple but super classic plain white tee. I've got a little tutorial on the blog so you can try it out too! www.SweetShard.com *Link in bio!
Ecco qua la maglietta che ho cucito ieri per la mia nipotina! Cartamodello: #skoladress di #eandepatterns . Taglia: 3 anni (è troppo grande per Giada che ha meno di 2 anni ma è una bimba abbastanza alta per la sua età). Modifiche effettuate: non ho cucito il facing e ho rifinito lo scollo con un semplice orlo. P.s. lo scollo è troppo ampio per i miei gusti, lo modificherò
I made a Mesa Dress 👗 from @seamworkmag and it was too small, I was bummed 😕😕😕 SUPER bummed 😩😩😩 but I plan to change it into the Margo Skirt so it shouldn't be too bad 🌈 Lesson learned: check sizing according to a similar item of clothing you own for fit 📒 I hope you all have had a wonderful Monday 💖💖💖
#miymarch17 day 27: loungewear. I missed a week of posts because I was lucky enough to be visiting my son in Austin eating fantastic food, enjoying a #pedicab ride and lounging in these fabulous #lunapants previously blogged ("Wild and Crazy Luna Pants") which are the ultimate in loungewear. I made them last year with my favorite @aprilarhodes fabric from @artgalleryfabrics . The awesome pattern is by @madebyrae and I am feeling as though it is time to make another pair for spring. #memadeeveryday#memade#sewing#madebyrae#nursebeansews#nursebeanunplugged
