Staying out of the heat in Adelaide and having a day pattern drafting. The fan is causing havoc with my paper tho....

This week is Christmas spirit week at school and these kids have one excited music teacher who is finally getting to wear her #christmaswardrobe. Today I was all #memade in a red Sandy Tunic from @sinclairpatterns (as usual 🤷🏻‍♀️) and some festive #peglegs. Tomorrow is plaid day and I’m positively brimming with excitement over here because of the outfit I’ve picked out. 🎄🎄🎄

The "real" version #stylearcpatterns #saadelinedress in @sckafsfabrics cotton linen blend #imakemyownclothes #isewmyownclothes #memadewardrobe
I've tried a couple of #skirt patterns as attempted stash busters but have donated most of them as I've struggled with getting the fit right - either over compensating by sizing up too much in a stretch fabric that didn't need it, or not sizing up enough :/ But Vogue 1023 fits pretty great right out of the envelope. #Sewing up another in a patterned corduroy I can hopefully share soon...

I'm enjoying the thoughtful details in this #orageuseriga, for example the back of both the belt and the belt loop are made of lining which means the belt slides smoothly through, this also makes me glad I paid extra for matching lining 😊 also that back pleat 😍 #hilscoatmaking

On day 10 of #Dressember I gave in and wore jeans with my dress. Not sorry! The average cost of a slave today is $90 - that also happens to be the ticket price of my jeans. It’s also the lowest price of slaves in history, allowing traffickers to treat people as disposable. Humans are priceless and irreplaceable, and it’s a travesty that people can be bought for the price of a pair of pants. You can’t put a price on human dignity, but even $5 or $10 can help restore it for a survivor. The link to donate and find more information is in my bio. #itsbiggerthanadress #endhumantrafficking #untilallarefree #endslavery #imakemyownclothes #paprikapatterns #jasperdress #dressoverjeans

Look at how far we have come, Fam! We made it through some challenges and successes for 2018, but regardless there is so much more to achieve. ************************************************************************************************ As you continue the year, finish it out STRONG. It is not the end, but rather a time to reflect, realign, and LAUNCH. ************************************************************************************************ I most certainly have your back, so go and become the very thing you never thought possible for yourself. 
SWIPE LEFT to see my first experience in pursuing my passion and use it as inspiration to knock out ALL of your goals.

InVESTing in my craft! I love vests, so I had to add a black faux fur vest to my collection.

Eye candy at the leather store today. Went in to pick up some more leather for my other super special project for @ju.bell a leather jacket... I was short leather for one sleeve 😧 the teal in this shot was so very tempting but I was sensible... for once 😂

Originally, I had planned to make a very simple apron with ‘The very hungry caterpillar’ fabric as a parting gift to my daughter’s kindy teacher. She is always an appreciative audience of my sewing creations and an excellent teacher to boot. 
However, it, uh, metamorphosed into something rather more elaborate, with a quilted leaf with egg on one side and a felted caterpillar on the other, quilted food to feed into the hungry caterpillar’s mouth, a cocoon attached by a magnet to cover the caterpillar and a hidden fluttering butterfly.
I hope she likes it!

I want and love and quite possibly NEED this exact dress from @al_paulger, made up in our Delilah’s Garden viscose 🌸 Fabric link in bio

Maxi dress 2 of 3 finished for my work Christmas party. This is the #ddmagnolia made as low as I could go with the neckline and still be bra friendly (cut out between the view A and B necklines) and with the butterfly sleeves. Really happy with how it turned out. Made with some yummy viscose from #tessutifabrics Now onto dress 3!

Perfect Match! 
This Sandwashed Rayon is the Perfect Match to the #arenitepants by @sewliberated.  The sandwashed finish adds a casual look, while the softness of the rayon makes this fabric perfect for this pattern and so many more!

The fabric I chose for my final project should probably be classified as a torture device 😬🤯🤦‍♀️

The details on the @republiqueduchiffon #elisabethpattern are 🤤 
The cuffs were a breeze to put together. The slot seams, however, have blown my mind 🤯 Swipe > to see my first attempt, I don’t think it’s half bad! 
I can’t wait to start constructing this baby properly now, counting down to wearing it on Friday!

One more detail about the #sewfrosting dress I posted previously. The dupioni I used had a fringy selvedge - something I wanted to incorporate somehow when I got around to using this piece. On this dress it wouldn’t fit in with the rest of the look on the outside, so I kept the fringe inside where I could still see it. To accommodate a lapped zipper (see 2nd pic for finished result), I always increase the center back seam allowance on my patterns to 1 inch, plenty of room to cut the center back on the selvedge edge and keep the fringe as the seam “finish.” I really love having fun details on the inside!

Here are my lovely new #burnsidebibs by @sewhouse7 . This is my second pair, this one is a more fitted one with the zip. The other one has become my uniform so I desperately needed a second pair, a more dressy version. I love it! The fabric is linen from @wearethefabricstore, a purchase inspired by @adaspragg

For a while now, my mom has been pinning beautiful vests and jackets by textile artist Juanita Girardin to her Pinterest page. This year for her birthday I wanted to attempt to make her one. I originally planned on using a vintage pattern from the 60's to get the shape, but I quickly realized that was not going to work. I came across this awesome free sewing pattern from @peppermintmagazine for their button jacket (issue 18). It was the perfect starting point.
.
I ended up removing the hood/tassel portion, bringing in the neck and shoulder, shifting the side seem forward, adding a lining and adding pockets. I had awesome luck finding great fabric at my store and love how it all came together. More importantly, my mom loves it!
.
Also, can we talk about how good of a sport my mom is for taking these pictures?? .

My newest sweater and my newly mended jeans! This sweater is the #brightsweater pattern from @junkookamoto212. I knit it in #avfkwgather yarn from @avfkw. The color of the yarn is just from the blend of the alpaca and Rambouillet wool, and has a sort of glow to it. The combination of the yarn and the sweater pattern could not have gone more perfectly!

The thing about driving to photo shoot locations is you always get wrinkles in your garments. 🙈 I need a traveling steamer or just need to change into the garments once I get there. 😂 Luckily the Dani pinafore dress is still cute, it’s really giving me school girl vibes! 📚 Visit the blog for more photos and details on this one —> ROSYPENA.com (Link in Bio) #rosypena #sewingblogger .

Impulse sew today. After seeing so many #noratop from @tillybuttons in the past weeks, I wanted to give a go at a cropped, boxed top. I had one in mind from a @burda_style Young & Easy issue, A/W 2017. The model nr 3. I just tapered the sleeves a bit, cause I didn't have enough fabric and I've interfaced one side of the collar to make it stand a bit more. Really happy with it. It was a super quick make too. Took maybe one hour to sew together.

I've been knitting again and made the #poufpullover by @lionbrandyarn in @schachenmayr merino extrafine85. This is not perfect by far, a closer look would reveal how uneven the knitting is. But it's  warm, cozy and I love it!
This is also the last item on my #2018makenine list, which concludes it. I did it! 😊

When the Dr steps out in Ador’e... literally! 😍 She wanted to match pink with this blue/black/white Ankara print fabric so we did a pink bell sleeve top to pair with this high/low skirt. Finding shoes to match would be hard so we used pieces of both fabrics to cover up these teal heels (which I left the insides of the shoes this color to give a little contrast) and customized them to complete this ensemble. 3 words.... Oh 💕 So 💕 Ador’e-ble 💕

Don’t have the time or energy to sew at the moment, so I’m dreaming and planning! Here’s a little peak of my fabric for my next @sewmesunshine.uk blog post. It’s a gorgeous soft lilac cotton floral jersey by @cottonandsteel called Moonrise posy and I’m planning to use it either for a Nina Lee Mayfair dress or a Sew Liberated Stasia dress ☺️🌸 #sewingsunshine #cottonandsteelcloset #sewistsofinstagram #diyfashionista #sewingblogger #mayfairdress #stasiadress #moonrisefabric #imakemyownclothes #diyfashion #memadewardrobe #sewingplans

Took the kids out yesterday evening with great bribery involved for a quick holiday photo shoot and got so many gems. 🤣
.
If I were to title these photos - 
Photo 1: Brothers. 
Photo 2: Sister... (photographic proof it’s not always the boys doing their own thang. Ha!)
Photo 3: 🤣🤣. (I was telling my kids a too-embarrassing-to-repeat-to-the-public story to make them laugh and pay attention to me and can you guess which child’s name I used as the main *ahem* stinky character...)
.
We are getting Christmas card ready over here.  Anyone else still have to take their family photos?! 😬
.
Pattern: On daughter- #everydaysweatshirtmade by @made_everyday, #sailorbowpattern by @sweetredpoppy (Just released!  I’ve made 8 so far with 12 more in the works!! You NEED these bows in your life!)

Bevor ich wieder hier vergesse zu posten 🙈
Ich schieb euch einfach noch ein paar Sachen dann nachträglich hinterher ☺️
Meine liebste Susie von @naehkind hat mal wieder drei traumhafte und elegante Designs auf Viskosejersey, alle in schwarz-beige, in die weite Nähwelt gelassen. Alle einfach nur wunderschön und total für ein Weihnachtskleid geeignet. 🥰. Bei mir ist aus dem wundervollen #joy ein honigsüß geworden. 
Noch ist ein wenig Zeit zum nähen 😬 (2 Wochen habt ihr noch🌟)
Die anderen beiden Deisgns könnt ihr bei @traumnaht und @chrissi_fritzundfrida bewundern 😍
Beitrag enthält Werbung, da mir der Stoff zum Designnähen zur Verfügung gestellt wurde.

Back from an incredible birthday trip up the California Coast, and so grateful to be back in my knitting chair. I turn 42 on Wednesday. At this stage, I need a recovery day after vacation. 😁

A 3-hour dress!  I needed something for an upcoming event and went to a pattern I drafted a few months back that I was pretty sure would work.... A designer dress that I “paid tribute to” (ie:copied). I used a double knit fabric EOS 68091 (there’s still a little bit left!), mixing direction of the stripes and using black ponte for the side fronts and upper yoke. Since the double knit has a tweedy reverse, I sewed those seams wrong sides together to create a decorative trim in front. Swipe for a closeup. Luckily I love sleeveless dresses .... which makes things go a lot faster!😊I can wear a sweater or jacket over it and take it off if my internal thermostat decides to go haywire 😄.

V neck is my favourite neckline. 
Do you have a fav neckline?? Shown here are my 2 latest Seoul Blossom Blouses by @sewtogrow On the left, I omitted the sleeves & used bias to finish the armholes. I was scrap busting & didn't have enough for sleeves 😂 On the right I added sleeve tabs to keep my sleeves rolled. I love a versatile pattern that you can make work for all seasons.

The Dr said no sewing but I don’t think he meant hand sewing 😂😂 And if you know me, you know I always have some hand sewing left to do on multiple projects 😂. Welp, this dress is all done now just to flat stitch the hem, which I am sure I can manage later .. hehehe .. 🤫🤫🤫

Done! Sadly this dress is impossible to capture without proper daylight - but here‘s my Kathryn Dress (pattern by @itchtostitch ). I used dark grey Ponte di Roma and made a handful of fitting adjustments. I even shifted down the waist seam by an inch and I still think it is quite high. In case I make another dress from the pattern I‘ll further modify this. Very happy with the overall result, super wearable piece 👍

Heading out for a walk with my dog in my #memades. Hazel is wondering if we can just get on with it already. 🤣. Modified #toastersweater in a cozy French terry from @stonemountainfabric .  And my modified mid-rise #persephonepants in duck cloth from @joann_stores.  This is pretty much my uniform this winter...toaster sweaters and wide leg pants. #seattlesews #imakemyownclothes

COLOUR!!!
It's the first thing people notice from a distance, long before the fabric even comes into play.
It strongly affects the mood and first impression you’re going to make.
There are different meanings that apply to each color

Happy Monday guys, we've nearly done it! I've felt pretty pants most of today, still tired from a busy weekend, with the added misery of tooth ache and a trip to the dentist! 🤐 However, one thing that's made me feel a bit better has been wearing my latest make. I think this is maybe my 9th @grainlinestudio #lindensweatshirt and possibly my favourite. Made with this awesomely cool stretch velour that I got as an odd piece off the market for £4, the colours are so vibrant and the palette right up my street. I love how good me made clothes can make you feel, especially when you might not be feeling at your best #memade #handmade #handmadewardrobe #myhandmadewardrobe #imakemyownclothes

Finally managed to get photos of my other 2 #elliotsweater s. Both in fabric from the nylon shop, the first with different lengths front and back, side split and 3/4 length sleeves. The second with full length and no split. So comfy and cosy to wear in the colder weather. @helens__closet #sewing #sew #isew #sewist #seamstress #imakemyownclothes #isewmyownclothes #memade #memadeeveryday #wintersewing #cosyjumper

After complaining about a 40 page pattern, I went and printed one with almost 60... Go me. This is the PARTYkleid by @lenipepunkt. It's perfect for using up scraps - only I still have got scraps of this lace print jersey left over! 😱 Guess those will be turned into another pair or two of panties... Anyways. According to the size chart, I am between an S and M. Out of vanity, I decided to go with the S but add a few centimeters to the waist grading to an M for the hips. Yeah. So I added about 2 cm per side and then I had to go and take out 4. Per side. Which means the insides are quite a hackjob now because of course I finished everything completely before trying it on. I never learn. But I have another new dress.

Chances are if you follow me here, you know how to knit! But maybe you don’t, or maybe you know someone who’d like to learn? I’m really excited to be teaching a beginning knitting class with Kate @northern_yarn in January. Over two sessions (9 Jan and 16 Jan) we’ll learn the basics of knitting, purling, and working in the round to make a cowl similar to this one (two colors is totally optional!) in some scrummy super chunky British wool! The cost of the class is £40 plus materials — link in profile if you’d like to learn more, sign up, or pass it onto a friend! I absolutely adore sharing the love of knitting with others and am so excited to be offering this class with Kate!

I’ve spent this afternoon using the ZOZO suit and blogging about it.

It’s been all go, no sew recently 😫 I should try to take advantage of the time I have to sew but with a tricky fitting problem on my hands, I’ve been putting it off. Here’s this photo of me sewing and looking very ✨zen✨ till I get back to it. 📸: @nikki__mehr

Do you aim to make all the garments you wear? Does having a #homemadewardrobe mean completely avoiding purchased garments? What drives the desire for 💯 % #memade anyway? As usual, I have more questions than answers. Although I once thought of making everything I wear, lately I am happy to mostly wear home sewn clothes. My sewing practice is moving more towards creating “special” (to me) clothes rather than attempting to make everything (especially pants...). But I’m still thinking about the “why”, so I’ll get back to you. 🤔

But I’m still thinking about the “why”, so I’ll get back to you. 🤔 . . . . . . . . . . . #imakemyownclothes  #lovesewing  #jecoudsdoncjesuis  #sewinginspiration  #sewingblogger  #handmadefashion  #diyfashion  #sewcialists  #sewersofinstagram  #instasew  #instasewing  #memadeeveryday  #jeportecequejecouds  #jecoudsdoncjesuis  #passioncouture  #millenialsewing  #dressmaker  #lovesewing  #isewmyownclothes  #slowfashion  #makersgonnamake  #makersmovement  #boutiqueunicorn 
My top nine for 2018! ✂️ This is my second year of learning how to make clothes and developing my quilting skills. It’s been so interesting to learn about my personal style, which handmade clothes I love to wear, and which ones I’ve barely worn. The last 4 months have been very full-on so I’m looking forward to having more time to spend sewing. Next year I want to focus on quality rather than how quickly I can make something, and find more styles which suit me 👗

I'd heard great things about the free @tessutifabrics Mandy Boat Tee pattern and now I can see why it is so popular! ✂️ I used this soft drapey knitted jersey fabric from @guthrieghani (they still have it in stock and it's on sale!) 🛒 I made a size 1 with no adjustments and I really love the shape and fit - there will definitely be more Mandys in my wardrobe!🚪

Casting on this next! Starting a new project always brings excitement. This merino wool is so soft. I chose color Pearl, a soft mauve, which is a new territory for me. Can't wait to get started!
