Photos

So this was an experimentation with taking photos in the front room of my new abode and as much as I like them I think the hunt is still on for a better backdrop....but it’s great I’ve found time to smash out some makes amongst all the moving and shaking. First up, a #colettepatterns Aster blouse in this lovely lightweight rayon. The design has stripes and cranes falling up and down like they are monster drunk (or like Don Draper in the Mad Men opening credits - although the two descriptions kind of are one and the same) and is from @fabricgodmother and I really fell for it’s quirky weirdness 😍 I made the long sleeve version before in a stiff linen and wasn’t so keen on the fit - it looked a bit awkward, but I think it works much better in a drapey fabric and glad I went with the pretty flutter sleeves. #memade #handmadewardrobe #slowfashion #ilovesewing #sewinginleeds

Jag har sytt mig en ny favoritblus! 😍 En riktigt bra avslutning på helgen👌 Jag har flera blusar i den här modellen. Jag har flera mönstrade blusar. Jag har flera plagg i marinblått, rött och gult. Jag har koll på min personliga stil. Jag vet vilka kläder jag älskar. Det är en underbar känsla att jag är trygg i mina kläder! Kan du säga vad som är din personliga stil? Vilka kläder är det som du verkligen älskar och använder? #dressbyheart #stilcoach #måbraidinakläder #personligstil #ingaregler #kläder #inspirationsföreläsare #visavemduär #tropådigsjälv #följdindröm #vågamisslyckas #vågavarasårbar #pms #colettepatterns #libertyfabric #påskrå #sygarderobenmedenplan

Une nouvelle #moneta de #colettepatterns en version manches 3/4 et plus longue pour ma maman 💋joli jersey de #atelierdelacreation. Une robe nickel pour la rentrée 😜 le patron est top et le tissu très facile à travailler. Pour l’été prochain je tenterai la version sans manches 🤩💅🏻 #coutureaddict #couturepassion #jaimelacouture #monetadress #diy #jecoudsdoncjesuis #couture #instacouture #sew #instasew #jersey #tissu #tissuaddict
Colette Sorbetto top finished! Just needs a good pressing (viscose gets wrinkled very easily). Quick story on this, I already have version 3 of this top (which I believe is the one with sleeves). I didn't feel like reprinting the pattern so I just used the pattern I had, ditched the sleeves and lengthened the bodice 6 inches according to the finished garment measurements. So it could be shorter than the original version 2 look, but 🤷🏾. I'll post another picture of it on sometime later. Another #letssewthistogether entry!

Aster by @colettepatterns is a simple and classy sew. And pretty quick too! 👚
My specs: View 1 Size 10 -no modifications I’m pretty sure this is Liberty of London if not it is a cotton lawn of some sort-sorry. Thought I had buttons. Alas! Sewing: French seams on the underarm and sideseam, yoke clean finish on shoulders and back, overlock finish on armholes, bias trim neck with clean finish placket and rolled hem. Nitty gritty specs below hashtags. 📝What I’d do next time: 1) shorten sleeve by one cuff width 2) make a cropped version with side vents and add to the circumference of the sleeve hem (with that same one cuff width shorter sleeve). I just recently learned that I have a sway back. I’d heard this term before but had no idea it pertained to me. The back view of this illustrates it perfectly. ⌛️This wasn’t something we talked about in design school 30 years ago 😂 learn something new all the time right? 😉 ✂️#coletteaster #colettepatterns #Sewing #sew #sewistsofinstagram #sewersofinstagram #sewcialists #makers ✂️
I sew on an industrial Juki single needle machine which recently lost its electronics. It’s a bit cumbersome right now (new machine on its way) and it’s also calibrated for my day job sewing for Chicken Boots-heavier weight sewing. It usually has a size 18 needle and I sew with Tex 40 thread. Hence why I did not overlock more. The thread can weigh this lawn down and make the seams too bulky. I switched to a size 14 needle which made a huge difference on the seams appearance. With a heavier needle it would draw my seams too tight in this light weight fabric. I’m not big in to French seams but they’re so simple when you’re only talking a couple on a nice cotton woven.  I should have pulled my bias a bit more as i attached it and also left it longer st the fronts to make it easier to tuck in to the placket. I wrote that mainly for my future self. 👌🏼😅

This is a fast sew!! An hour and a half in and I only have to attach sleeves and hem it! 🎉Contrary to popular vote I went with short because it’s true- I’ll get more use out of it where I live. ☀️My tip for sewing short sleeve cuffs or hems is to sew it from the inside with the sleeve inside out. That way you won’t catch the other side while struggling to move it through your machine. (Also-pin perpendicular to what you’re sewing!) ❤️And yes I do not use Pellon but only fabric for interfacing. I find mixing synthetic and natural fiber a bit contrary for my taste. After all, we sewed in a time before pellon existed right? 🤷🏼‍♀️ #colettepatterns #coletteaster #libertyoflondon #sewing #sewsewlivestream #sewcialists #sewistsofinstagram #sewersofinstagram #sewingtips #sewingtipsandtricks #juki #production #sew #saremyduffy #saremysews ✂️❤️

More sewing attempts! I got this fabric on sale to try a Moneta Dress with. I’m making version 1 without a collar or lining 😼 #monetadress #colettepatterns #sewing #biocotton #flamingodress #sewersofinstagram #catsofinstagram
The first time I saw this fabric, I knew I needed it! Haha I’m so obsessed with this print, it’s absolutely adorable. I’m planning to make a canvas Zinnia skirt (possibly adding a pattern hack to it, I’m not sure yet 😛)

I’ve never used canvas to make clothing before, but I’ve heard good things about cotton & steel’s cotton linen canvas 🤞🏻

I’m making an @colettepatterns Aster and can’t decide between short or long sleeves. 🤷🏼‍♀️ It’s so hot out I want short but winter is coming🐺
The scale of the print is easier to imagine if I hold up my Aster window a little farther away from the print. What do you think? Long or short? ❤️✂️ ........... #colettepatterns #coletteaster #libertyoflondon #sewing #sewsewlivestream #sewcialists #sewistsofinstagram #sewersofinstagram #sewingtips #sewingtipsandtricks #juki #production #sew #saremyduffy #saremysews ✂️❤️

I was hoping to get a pattern drafted this afternoon while Thing 1 was at school, but no dice. Barely got it taped together. Better luck next time! Getting excited about my first #colette dress though!

I went on a trip to Switzerland and it was great! Want to read about it? I started a blog (again...) and wrote about it (in Dutch). The link is in my profiel! This is one of the outfits I took with me: top is the Stevie pattern from @tillybuttons , the shorts are based on the Juniper pattern from @colettepatterns (but I changed so much it doesn’t really look like it anymore) and all fabrics came from @toverstof . #sewing #fabric #patterns #sewingstevie #tillyandthebuttons #sewingjuniper #colettepatterns #toverstof #nevernotsewing

This red viscose twill is so bright! A @colettepatterns Sorbetto top was the perfect pattern, a simple pattern let's the brightness shine. This is version 2 the longer tunic version. Also look 4/10 of my #fallcapsulewardrobe collection. Hopefully will be finished by tomorrow for our possible photoshoot! 😏

And here’s both of my #imaginedlandscapesfabric vacation projects. I love them together ☀️🤩.
I added the option of a shoulder strap to the #rangebackpack because I like to keep my valuables in close reach while in big crowds (Yes I’m talking pocket thieves: once bitten, twice shy).

Thanks so much for the kind words about my new #colettepatterns #hawthorndress ! It feels so good to have this garment done and on my body. I really can’t explain how floaty this #sleepingporchfabric is. I also just wanna express that I ended up having a really great time taking these photos, but definitely had to power through a couple gawkers and a family of 15 + photographer trying to invade my spot. I’m glad I held my ground and powered through the awkward, because I ended up with some photos I’m very happy with! This whole sewing thing helps me to grow, grow, grow with every new project. This community is inspiring and lovely - thanks for having me. ✨ #hannahlearnstosew #colettehawthorn #heatherross #hannahlikesprimary #workingmystashoff #millennialsewing

Just slip stitching the lining in place and this dress will be done! Do you prefer to hand stitch or stitch in the ditch when it comes to linings? .

I also finished the #zinniaskirt by @colettepatterns before we left on vacation. Inspired by Lisa’s @stoffreise vintage #skirtpattern (if you followed my stories you know how much I adore her skirt😍) I changed the waistband a bit to have a small “gap” in the front. .

Sewing buttonholes is so satisfying! I love this tip for I picked up from @tillybuttons: use a seam ripper to open the buttonhole, and place a pin at the bar tack to avoid cutting too far. Also, how perfect are these mini mentos shank buttons? I finished the dress this weekend but have a few small alterations to make before it’s officially done! #handmadewardrobe #memadeeveryday #sewistsofinstagram #colettepatterns #hawthorndress #isew

Wow, I finished a garment! 🤩 It feels like I’ve returned to myself after a challenging late spring/ early summer. 😌 There are things that went wrong through the entire process of making this dress, so it was a very slow sew, but it makes me appreciate it that much more. I used the most beautiful drapey cotton lawn #sleepingporchfabric by #heatherross. I pre-ordered it from #stashfabrics long ago, and finally put it to good use. The dress is a #colettepatterns #hawthorndress which is also make 3 of my personal #makenine2018 challenge. I made a size 6 at the bust and graded to an 8 at the waist/hip. I also haphazardly changed the armscye a bit by using my grainline alder as a guide. I was gonna add pockets, but remembered only after I fully enclosed the side seams. This dress probably has the nicest guts of any I’ve made before. My self-covered buttons don’t pop as much as I thought they would, but regardless I’m very happy with how everything turned out! #hannahlearnstosew #2018stashorbust #colettehawthorn #rochestersews #hannahlikesprimary #millennialsewing #workingmystashoff

I’m back from my holidays and back in my sewing room. I just celebrated my #im40bitches and wanted to make myself something special for my party. I’ve been wanting to try the #winslowculottes by @helens__closet but couldn’t decide on the fabric. And then on my recent travels in Poland I found the happiest fabric! So inspired by video by @lisakisch I made a faux jumpsuit. I used #sorbettotop for the top part which I cropped quite a bit. It’s the comfiest, swishest outfit ever and I felt super happy and groovy wearing it last night. Thanks to everyone who came to my party! I had a blast! .

I had a blast! . #sewing  #partysewing  #sewingblogger  #instasew  #fauxjumpsuit  #lovetosew  #joyofcreativity  #creativehappylife  #summersewing  #isew  #isewmyownclothes  #memade  #handmadewardrobe  #imadethis  #slowfashion  #ilovefabric  #lovesewing  #sewingproject  #colettesorbetto  #colettepatterns  #sewingblog  #sewist  #sewistsofinstagram  #sewcialists  #smly

Pendant les vacances, c'est plutôt "les petites coutures", avec la confection de deux nouveaux hauts pour la fin de l'été.
En prime, un sourire de castor comme je les aime sur la photo.

I had such a fun day in the city seeing the Downton Abbey exhibit, getting a Magnolia cupcake and fabric shopping in the garment district! (@ruddytocraft filled in as my instagram husband 😜) I wore my Colette Penny dress!

Good morning IG-lovelies! 👋. So once again I failed to look elegant and demure (ya think?!) but I *so* wanted to share my me-made outfit, so please indulge me 🙏🏻. I made my Crazy Stripes Tee last year, but have only just (finally) made the Zinnia skirt, the fabric for which I bought at the same time as the yarn in a conscious attempt to create an “outfit”. .
.
Actually I think it looks a little *too* coordinated for me, but I’m still super chuffed 😁💪🏻. (PS I wove the red scarf as well!!!)

#hawthorndress is almost done, thanks to a marathon sewing session this weekend while watching the @crossfitgames (though all work came to a halt while cheering on @jamiejoyce2 and crew!💪). This weekend it’ll be the buttons/ buttonholes, bias binding for the armholes, and hemming the (much shortened) skirt! #weekendwarrior #handmadewardrobe #colettepatterns #cottonandsteel #sewistsofinstagram
This skirt! Possibly my favorite make yet, it’s been surprisingly versatile with lots of different tops. I bought this amazing @riflepaperco linen-cotton canvas to make a #colettezinnia skirt, but when it came time to cut out the pieces I realized that the fabric was narrower than the skirt piece width. I didn’t want to cut crossgrain and have sideways birds, so I slashed and overlapped the pattern to make it fit the fabric width and hoped for the best. It worked! Worn yesterday with a @heyjunehandmade #unionsttee in a striped jersey knit from @stylemakerfabrics.

It’s not everyday that I can entirely wear what I made. And when it happens it feels really good!
.
The shirt is from #colettepatterns, it’s the #sorbetto top. It’s actually one of my most worn shirt in the last 6 months; it’s comfortable, light and it goes with quite a lot of stuff. I made it with a small piece of fabric that I brought when I came back from India. It was a scrap from a fabric that one of my dearest friend @lau0924 had used to make a kurta pajama just before she left. It was a really small piece and I wanted to make something that I could wear everyday in every season out of it. And of course, everytime I wear it It reminds me of her.
.
The skirt is the first one I made. I didn’t have any pattern but had a very precise idea of what I wanted so this is a homemade pattern, with pockets - of course!

Wearing my breeziest makes to beat the heat today: a #doublegauze #colettesorbetto paired with a self drafted #alisonglass Adorn #cottonlawn skirt. Inspired by the Mother’s Day sashiko workshop I took at @butcherssewshop, I embroidered this white double gauze from @imaginegnats with bright pink #sashiko (swipe for detail). It worked up surprisingly quickly and I love how it turned out! 💕

All hail the #hemmerfoot! Look how beautiful that #babyhem is coming along.

Honestly I was going to #overcast the #hem of this #crepe top of mine. Talk about #sewing #slipperyfabrics, I'd given up trying to turn the Hem up twice...you can't use too hot an iron else you damage the #fibers...then I remembered that my #presserfeet set came with a #hemmerfoot, bam!

Had to try it a couple times tho to get the hang of it but this feet is everything! Lazy me, I'm going to #babyhem everything now! Lol

Official entry of my first make in the #greatbigpatternswap. It’s a #monetadress from #colettepatterns, made in a drapey, comfy viscose jersey. Thank you so much @stephhuffannie1 for the pattern! 💞 I’ve wanted to try the Moneta for ages, but I didn’t know it came with this pretty collar. I was wondering if the Moneta would suit my mummy tummy. I’m still not sure. In the third pic I look a little preggo but I’m curving my back there. What do you think, should I make more Monetas? .

Lovely Dawn in her Myrtle dress started and finished in Garment sewing class! #colettepatterns #myrtledress #artgalleryfabrics
Easy summer shift dress using the #LaurelDress pattern from @colettepatterns. I smoothed out the side seams and ignored the back darts for a nonfussy straight fit. Sleeves shortened as well.
I love the front pockets. Just the right size to hold my phone while I'm listening to Wuthering Heights on audio book on my way to and from work. Looking for some good fiction recommendations if you have any!

The heatwave over here robbed me of my sewing mojo but I managed to finish this dress: the Colette Myrtle in a bird print jersey fabric from #böttgeralkmaar. The dress gave me some trouble, the back was far too large (even though I used my size) and the elastic waistmethod they suggested made it bulky. It looked like a sackdress. So I took out 2 inch of the back and attached the waistelastic to the 1 cm seamallowance on the inside. Now it’s a perfect dress for this ☀️ weather.  #colettemyrtle #colettepatterns #memadewardrobe #iwearwhatisew #memadeeveryday #memade #sewing #ilovetosew #sewinglife #zelfgemaakt #naaien #naaistersuithetnoorden #naaieniship #seamstressofinstagram #sewingandcats #catsandsewing #sewingtall

So making this top was a bit of a whirlwind. It’s a modified Colette Violet top. I actually originally made it with sleeves, then remembered I hate wearing sleeves. But of course the arm holes weren’t drafted to be sleeveless, so I had to bring the shoulders in considerably and take out a lot of the ease in the underarm area, to deal with the gaping. It would have been a lot smarter to redraft the armholes before cutting 🙄 but of course I didn’t do that. To be honest I feel a little bit like an oversized American Girl Doll in this top. I mean it’s awfully precious, but I’m happy with results anyway!

Cette cousette aussi a failli finir aux oubliettes😞. C'est la robe crêpe de chez Colette. J'ai changé le jupon pour qu'elle ressemble à la #robeleaf de # dessinemoiunpatron.  Elle n'est pas ratée mais elle ne correspond pas à ma morphologie... #jecoudspourmoi #leaf #colettepatterns #robecrepe #tissusdurenard #broderieanglaise

Well, it's a dress and I made it. I think this might be my first successful woven dress, despite it's all around wonkiness. 😊First #summerofbasics done! #sewing #sewersofinstagram #making
It's a #2018makenine update! Over halfway through the year and I'm nowhere near halfway through my list. I've substituted 2 patterns - the Taylor Tailor Desmond backpack and Colette's Aster, both of which I still want to make but have to be realistic about what is achievable by the end of the year. Instead I've got the Brick sweater by Clare Lee and Seamwork Eugene, a t-shirt pattern for men that I'm making for Andrew.
1. Coop knits socks - I've made 1 pair and am halfway through a second 
2. Aquinnah by Kerry Robb. I've not started this, still need to pick out yarn
3. Ginger jeans - got 2 of these cut out and ready to start sewing.
4. Chi town chinos - I've printed the pattern 
Snoqualmie
5. Desmond backpack becomes Brick sweater, I've nearly finished the body on this
6. Snoqualmie cardigan - finished the front and back, I'm halfway through my third version of the sleeves 🙄
7. Grainline Archer - not even printed this yet
8. Colette Aster - substituted for Seamwork Eugene, onto my third version of this because as normal, Seamwork's sizing is completely random
9. Grainline Linder - made 2 of these this year!
Looking at it I've made more progress than I thought. Just got a few gifts to sew up and I can get back to selfish sewing!

This week has been packed full of lively, fun things and loads of challenging responsibilities.  Thursday, I snuck some time and made this #colettemyrtle dress and I love it!  The fabric is a rayon and drapes like a dream. ❤️
Making feeds my soul and dressing myself in clothes I love that fit perfectly, makes my day!

This may become part of my #summerofbasics
Lineup...maybe.

A quick palate cleanser whilst in the midst of making Lander Pants. This is a Colette Moneta Dress in a lovely cotton rainbow jersey from @textileexpress  It has a slightly altered neckline and a neckband. Perfect now that the temperatures have dropped a little bit.

Fellow creatives: do you have a designated space in your home for sewing/ making? This week I finally organized the garage and carved out a space for myself. I’ve been feeling pretty overwhelmed by the prospect of sewing lately, and that’s partly because of the chaos it creates. Life with a toddler takes its toll on our house, and adding fabric scraps, pattern trimmings, wayward cords, and bladed tools to the mix was just TOO MUCH FOR ME TO DEAL. Having a designated space outside of Avery’s realm has made all the difference; I can start projects, set them aside, and return to them when the mood strikes (usually after our adorable little tyrant is asleep). I don’t feel the pressure to finish projects in one night, and I can leave sharp objects lying around. It’s awesome. Full tour coming soon on the blog, complete with the cobwebs I’ve yet to remove.

Only 80 degrees in July? I’ll take it! After a trip to the library & the grocery store, we came home to play outside. I’m hoping to finish up Cleo’s #weechickadee today or tomorrow! (And for those wondering, I’m wearing my #colettewren in @katarinaroccella’s #mediterraneofabrics.) 🍋 #knittersofinstagram #sewistsofinstagram #knittingforkids #ysolda #colettepatterns #artgalleryfabrics #artgalleryknits #handmadewardrobe #memadeeveryday
So it's been so quiet in here because we've all been under the weather and when your body gets stressed out taking care of everyone's flu, then you come down with yours as a grand finale, the last thing you think of is sewing.
But hey I have been getting my daily sewspiration fix. I found this lovely free #sorbettoblouse pattern from @colettepatterns and I figured this should be a good start to #digitalpatterns. 
A download and plenty of cellotaping later, I got a muslin fitted today, thanks to the #sewalong So so proud of myself. And it's not so hard afterall!
