Day 11 #sewphotohop @houseofpinheiro 🎉The Creative process — my creative process involves a lot of problem solving 🤔 forced to be creative with the materials I have , patterns that are free or thrifted and mini budget.
I gain lots of inspiration right here on instagram from all you lovely sewists , and Pinterest for my dream wardrobe from RTW and runway inspo. I also enjoy vintage patterns and reading pattern instructions for ideas 💡Swipe through to see my recent make a @tessutifabrics #monroeturtleneck using thread that I had on hand for the serger, I stabilized the hem with stitch witchery (for the first time ever— game changer!) will patiently wait for gutermann coordinating thread and a twin needle to properly stitch the hem!! Turtle neck inspo from the pink and red trends, and layering ! I now want one in every color👀👀
Day 7 #sewphotohop - texture and color 🌈 I haven’t even scratched the surface of texture with fabrics in garment making! So many different types of apparel fabrics out there, that I haven’t worked with yet. So far I love to sew and wear natural type fibers like linens ,cotton and chambray . Recently I branched out with Rayon’s, voile and poplin. I have yet to work with heavy denim , silks , corduroy , twill, wool and even lace . I made this #dress47 with a thrifted mid weight linen blend, and LOVE the cream and pastel colors!! I want to go more neutral with my color palette, but have a thing for soft muted pinks, pastels purples, and blues. @houseofpinheiro #sewphotohop2018#dress47 pattern from @sarahblaho
AHHH I GOT A SEWING MACHINE 🎉For the past year I’ve been using my grandmas and I want to say it was time for my own, but it’s actually just ‘cause it went on sale and I impulse bought it because I make awful life decisions 😂
The new #clematistote pattern is NOW available over @sarkirsten 🎉🎉 you will LOVE this sweet beautiful design and it only takes one yard of fabric!! I have been using mine religiously, mainly to tote library books back and forth! With all French seams inside, I don’t have to worry about it ripping at the seam 💙 currently reading another @zadie_smith book called #swingtime , and just devoured #theperfectnanny by #leilaslimani and before that #crazyrichasians by #kevinkwan ... Hurry over for a discount on the new pattern @sarkirsten today 💙💙💙
Refashion! I gave this swiss dot chambray #louboxtop a big chop over the weekend. It was the kind of make you think you'll wear a ton then don't...I think largely because I've switched to more high waisted styles. So I chopped off the curved hem, took in the sides and did a slight hi low hem. Looks funny on the hanger but I love it so. And such a satisfying thing: to rework something and love it again! #sewcialist#instasew#igsew#sewist#handmadwardrobe#sewistofinstagram
