Day | 18 of #SewPhotoHop - activewear or loungewear: based on what’s in my list of things to sew, I would say loungewear?
For awhile during the summer I was going to the gym 3 times a week, but then got tendinitis on my elbow and stopped about a month ago. During that time, I had great plans on making work out tops... those dreams never happened.
I think loungewear is much easier to sew? Activewear seems very detail specific, like underwear... so I’m scared. But loungewear like the #fumeterreskirt , that’s gotta be much easier for this #sewingnewbie to handle, right?
Day 2️⃣3️⃣ & 2️⃣4️⃣ So Sunday was supposed to be something that is fast to make... This shirt started out that way until I ran out of thread. (Note to self buy extra next time)
It’s coming along nicely though. 😁
Yesterday’s post was about what I do while sewing. I usually have music or an audible book going. I put the speaker high so that it reaches all over the room.
Need suggestions for books??? Kevin Hart’s book is a good one. If you want to laugh. No sharp objects in the beginning.😳 I also sing 🎶 when my jams come on. Maybe I’ll give a behind the seam video soon to see the madness that is my life. 😉
Fabric: Ponte from @joann_stores
Completely loving my #metamorphicdress dress and all the lovelyness of fall layering!!! Wearing it all the ways! Can’t wait to get back to the sewing machine and finish my other projects! I have not bought a single piece of clothing this year, aside from bras and undies ya’ll! It’s a good feeling! But I’m running lows on t’s, but also on my confidence in sewing knits...but I’ll get there. #nakuspsews#imakemyownclothes#maker
#sewphotohop day 25 past years// #tbt one of the few pics I have of past makes (because most are pre-digital 😂) this me and dad at my 21st. I enjoyed digging back through old pics and seeing mt old makes reinforced my sewing ethos that nothing is not possible everything is just a series of steps to follow, and screw restricting yourself to "beginner" projects make whatever the heck you want! This dress is #voguepatterns#v2745 bias cut silk, the construction is by no means perfect (the tension was binkers because I sewed it with a zipper foot as I lost my normal foot 😂) but I was so proud of it and felt so much more fancy than I ever could have in rtw on a student budget.
I recently bought a shower curtain and as soon as I opened it up when I got home, I realized I could make it. Trust me when I say learning to sew has made me feel like I really can do anything, even if it's just a simple shower curtain. Tutorial link in bio!
Bring on seasonal colours! I’m still working my way through my Autumn wardrobe sewing marathon, and this is one of my most recent makes. It’s a heavily modified Holly Jumpsuit from @byhandlondon (I made the pants full length, changed the closure to a zipper and moved it to the back.) I’m still also trying to work put my shoulder fit issues (too much length in the sleeve cap, I think), but man, do I love this swishy jumpsuit!
Your everyday coat Josephine is perfect to wear to work or on the weekend with your favourite pair of jeans!
This slightly cocoon shaped coat is a great trans-seasonal staple! Make in heavy wool for those freezing cold days, or in a lovely linen for spring!
I said that this is the toughest fabric I have ever work with‼️ silk chiffon if this isn’t the slippery,flowly, shifting, fabric I have ever worked with in my life! But when you take your time and do it right 😘 I use a hairline sew the entire kimono together that really help with the finish,because doing French seams make me nervous because you can’t tell right side from wrong side of this silk so that could’ve been a catastrophe. Thanks to @professorpincushion for the tutorial #sewing#sewingpatterns#imakemyownclothes#simplicity#handmade#sewingforwomen#sewingproject
#sewphotohop day 25, past years: I scoured the internets this “morning” to find my old Flickr page and these old early sewing projects from 2012! Love the black and white polka dot dress, I need to find that pattern! I think the only one that was wearable was the #minorujacket 😫 On another note I totally forgot about that painting in the background. I painted that when I was 12 in an art class #isew#sewphotohop2018#isewmyownclothes#imakemyownclothes
Finally found some time to sew 🎉🎉🎉. I started this Melilot shirt a week ago but life has been just slightly crazy this past few weeks. I’m planning on using black buttons but will need to buy them after work tomorrow.
