I am visiting my sister and brother in law to meet their new baby and have lots of snuggles! Pictures currently in my story. Of course I packed some epp to do tonight while we hang out! 😀 Who's here and what are you making? 👋🏻

Things #isew while you sleep. When I bought that silk crepe in #bulgaria there was less than a meter and a half, and in romantic fashion the clerk and I used google translate to fill in the gaps of international language. She was flabbergasted at the jeans I wore and the bras I craft. This piece was thrown in for free after and hour of translated conversation and coffee. I got creative to make the sleeves long (one is cut on the cross grain (which I doubt you can tell) and I used beaded ribbon from #turkey . There's an irony there as ask a Bulgarian about a Turk ... that won't go well. It's more of a date shirt, and since the odds of those happening are slim (and evenings out are rarer unicorns as we already know) I'll wear that #peasantblouse the next time I take myself out for coffee. Or, while running along Lake Geneva next month. #kateandrosepatterns#uptownfolk#sewing#sewcialist
Got all dressed up for the #monetaparty 💛 The dress is made out of 4 t-shirts 💛 Love seeing everyones dresses 💛 Thank you for organizing the party @sewpositivity @sewabigail and @rach_wain 💛 And the party sponsors @colettepatterns @girlcharleeuk @minervacrafts @vhaberdashery @ernestwrightandson @beyond_measure_uk @adamrossfabrics @fabworksmillshop @fabricgodmother @thatwendyward @sewmesomething @dragonfly_fabrics @guthrieghani @faberwood_com @craftysewandso @sewessentialuk
When you finish your #emerydress by @christinehaynes at midnight, you wear it to work the next day despite freezing temperatures. I'm obsessed. The fabric is a cotton lawn and is a collaboration between @cottonandsteel and @riflepaperco. I love the gold detailing! Super fun dress that you can dress up or down! The only thing I altered from the pattern was doing a pleated skirt instead of a gathered one. Love!!
After sorting out my poorly machine (her donor sister arrived today for harvesting parts) I needed to have a quick and satisfying test run and @tillybuttons Cleo ticks all the boxes for what I needed tonight plus I love wearing the Cleo and I don't think I've ever seen a version I don't like. It's such a great pattern for all levels of aptitude and a fab one for tweaking too. It may be a good 'desert island' sewing pattern if there were such a thing 😁Hats off to Cleo, it's just what I needed tonight after a hard week ❤️#sewingcleo#sewersofinstagram#tillyandthebuttons#sewcialist#sewing#sewingtherapy#vintagesewingmachine#sewingfix
With so much happening in the activewear sewing world right now plus Spring race season looming on the horizon, I thought it'd be worth refreshing everyone's memory on our extensive range of digital sewing patterns, all designed with exercise in mind!
Our first pattern is the XYT Workout Top, named so because the three different upper back views look like an X, and Y, or a T! I created this pattern because I couldn't find a single workout top with an integrated bra that was supportive enough to run in - and this one is! I've raced a 20 miler wearing the one seen here and I was still smiling at the end, honest! You can make your own with varying levels of support, or leave out the bra entirely. The fully illustrated instructions include advice for making this on a sewing machine, overlocker/serger, and even a coverstitch binder, plus details on how to adjust for a full bust (FBA). Print at Home and Copy Shop (A0) formats come standard, so you can get right down to sewing up a sweat! Gets yours at http://shop.fehrtrade.com/products/xyt-workout-top (link in profile)
I'm ready to #monetaparty Thanks to the triple stitchers for organising and all the fab sponsors.
My fabric choices were from @fabworksmillshop and I'm really happy with my finished frock! Loved every minute of making @colettepatterns moneta and can't wait to get started on another.
