Color. Sewing. Bliss. @jayneandthedaffodils your padawan has come a long way😜 #lottajansdottereverydaystyle
It’s been VERY hot and smoky (due to forest fires in the area) this week making it hard to enjoy outdoor activities, so I spent time in the cool basement and managed to sew a little bit.  This is the Esme top by @lottajansdotter from the book Everyday Style.  It’s made in Kokochi Relax double cotton gauze from @missmatatabifabric.  I love the worn in look of double gauze and the overall look of this pattern. 
My only mod was to add tiny side slits.  My workmanship is not great as I found the double gauze harder to work with this time (I used it previously on my #camberset top) but it may also be that in a light, solid colour every little thing is more noticeable.  The neckline is quite wide on me but I’m not sure I’d take it in next time because the one main challenge I have with this top is that it’s really hard to take off!

Oddly, this shirt is WAY out of my comfort zone. It is cropped, no sleeves, swingy, and hangs off my breasts. All of that aside I made this with thrifted fabric and I could not be more proud of the third complete garment I have made myself. I still uber suck at using bias tape on the neckline but I got my groove on the arms so the next time should be easier. My favorite bit is that I kept some of the selvage edge where the dye bled. Expect to see this exact outfit way too much. 😛

Thank you for the #widn tag @shirleyrainbow_tb! I’m catching up with Unforgotten while making up the Owyn trousers I cut out yesterday. New lounging pants here I come! I’ve made quite a few lovely pieces from this book so I’m looking forward to seeing how these turn out. What have you been doing this evening? .

The making of ' Kiomi' midlength dress #100%linen #lottajansdottereverydaystyle
A little wrinkly but here you go! This is the #esmetunic from #lottajansdottereverydaystyle - one if my favorite quick makes these days. For this one, I lengthened it two inches, added a lining and eliminated the neck facings, and then added a few lines of shirring in the back to add a bit more shape than I normally need in this pattern, since the lining stiffened it up a bit more than usual!

Two firsts. I am sewing my first garment for myself, and I am using rivets to attach a leather handle to a handmade bag. #wishmeluck #leatherhandles #rivets #slowfashion #lottajansdottereverydaystyle #esmetunic
The #esmetunic is baggy, maybe too much. Do I take in a little from the side seams? Add darts? If I make another, I’ll go down a size, but it’s so soft and cozy! #mojowantstogoin #esmetop #lottajansdottereverydaystyle #garmentsewing #mammothflannel
Only now, I realize the jacket color should be blaze orange. #pilvijacket pattern from #lottajansdottereverydaystyle , deer pattern from @entropies at We All Sew. (Which I used previously on a baby quilt, last picture.) #applique #garmentsewing #pilvicoat
4-H sewing with my niece, nearly a full year before the county fair! #lottajansdotter #lottajansdottereverydaystyle #4h #4hproject #polkcounty4h #goldeneagles4h #sewingwithmyniece #kiomidress
double textile post today oops but Y’ALL TODAY I MADE PANTS so here’s a bonus video of me dancing around my kitchen in front of my trash can, wearing a whole outfit I made myself and feeling like my truest wildewoman self!!!! also hey there @some_friends_dancing thanks for encouraging me to move my body!!!#lottajansdottereverydaystyle #thecraftingrevolution #willnotbetelevised #postgradmakes #personalpractice
I like this #pilvijacket much better, thankfully. I added three inches in length to the coat and sleeves, and the Melton wool drapes well and is machine washable. (Yay!) I’m going to appliqué @entropies deer pattern to the back. (I love this pattern and used it for a baby #deerquilt for Lumberjack’s daughter four years ago.) Finally, I’m getting confident enough with garment sewing that I’m willing to make bigger mistakes. 💕 #garmentsewing #pilvicoat #lottajansdottereverydaystyle

Yesterday this was a sheet on a rack at Village Discount and today it is a shirt on my body! Sewing is magic (and so are washing machines) 💫#postgradmakes #handmadewardrobe #sustainablefashion #lottajansdottereverydaystyle #kiomitop #thecraftingrevolution #willnotbetelevised
My first I’m-not-sure-about-it make from the #lottajansdottereverydaystyle book, the shorter #pilvijacket . The interfacing made the fabric too stiff, so the fullness at the back balloons out weirdly. I’ve ordered snaps and plan to fold it inward at the hem in back, kind of like buttons on the hem of a jean jacket. I have some wool that would drape better, I’m trying to decide if I’ll try this jacket again or save it for a different pattern ... #garmentsewing

Kiomi Dress 
Tela de lunares de @mardehilos 
#kiomidress @lottajansdotter #lottajansdottereverydaystyle #summerdress #handmadewardrobe #summerwardrobe #sewing #sewersofinstagram #telasmardehilos
This dress is effortless to wear on a warm day!

I made a few small modifications - added length to the hem (2”) and to the belt, trimmed a crescent moon shape from each front armhole, and moved the belt loops up a bit.

The Esme Cap Sleeve Top in a great mid weight double gauze linen. Lots of slipstitches in this one. It was worth getting the dart right. Grrrr! #lottajansdotter #sewyourownclothes #memade #summerofbasics #lottajansdottereverydaystyle
Here’s my finished #esmetop in #mammothflannel , and my attempt at matching plaids. I got the horizontal lines pretty well, pay no attention to anything else. This top is so soft, I’m staying in it now. It’s 82F/67% humidity, but flannel is like wearing a nap. #lottajansdottereverydaystyle #garmentsewing #handmadewardrobe
#I make #isewmyownclothes #dressmaker #isew #isewmyownclothes #sewcialist #lottajansdottereverydaystyle #owynpants #lottajansdotter 💫I made another item!! Comfortable (no pockets) light and ok. I don’t LOVE them like I do the Esme top I think I’ll get a lot of wear from them though. 💫 I think I need to challenge myself in my next garment, something more fitted maybe. 🤔I like the Jenny overalls.
It's cool inside on this hot summer day...so I made me a cotton dress! # Esmetunic #lottajansdottereverydaystyle
Three things:
1. I had enough linen left from the dress to piece together an #esmetop and it’s my favorite clothing make so far! (The back and one sleeve are two pieces, so it’s weird but that suits me fine.)
2. My new glasses are rimless and light and I keep thinking I forgot my glasses. 
3. My other daughter had a fender bender. I miss having toddlers because they NEVER wrecked then!

The Lotta Pilvi jacket in Cloud9 latte denim over my daughter's 8th grade banquet dress made out of the same denim with Italian digitally printed stretch lace that we designed together, a simple princess line bodice with flared skirt. To the right is my new Scout tee out of French cotton/Lycra. Wish I could have gotten a photo of just my daughter in the dress but each photo I have she has friends in the picture. Lucky her to have so many good friends here. #makeminecloud9 #cloud9fabrics #lottajansdottereverydaystyle #lottajansdotterpattern #scouttee #frenchfabrics #frenchfabric

Yes!!! Happy me...now for the dress, same basic pattern! #esmetop #lottajansdottereverydaystyle
Here’s the finished red linen #kiomidress from the book #lottajansdottereverydaystyle . I like it better belted, but need a different belt. Maybe something obi-style but quilted ... ? #handmadewardrobe #garmentsewing #sewing
Red linen! Percy and I agree, it may already be our favorite dress. (Although I must admit, Percy has had a good nap so he’s in an agreeable mood. If you meet up with a sleepy Percy, he’s much more bitey.) Future #kiomidress from #lottajansdottereverydaystyle . #sewing #handmadewardrobe #garmentsewing
(Sorry for selfie-arm.) I made pajama pants to test the #owynpants pattern in #lottajansdottereverydaystyle ! *With a phone pocket!* (All jammie pants should have phone pockets.) And now it’s Sunday, so I think I’ll stay in these comfy things all day. #lottajansdotter #slowfashion #handmadewardrobe #sewingisawesome
A little pallet cleanser with some #owynpants #lottajansdottereverydaystyle #fabricland
I finished my #pilvicoat from the book #lottajansdottereverydaystyle and I love it! I chose @robertkaufman charcoal corduroy for mine, with red seam binding and just a touch of leftover #libertyfabric binding (by @sobiased ) along the hem that Mojo is hiding pretty effectively. I’m sill not sure about 3/4 sleeves on a coat, but it’s lightweight and meant for spring and fall anyway. PS I made that top, too! 😄 #namedclothing #slowfashion #garmentsewing #robertkaufman #handmadewardrobe #lottajansdotter

“The Taming of the Seams,” a saga in which a fledgling seamstress encases unruly corduroy in the hopes of loving the coat she is destined to wear ... #beenreadingmoviedescriptions #lottajansdottereverydaystyle #pilvicoat #sewing #garmentsewing #nyctable
I’ve started on my second #pilvicoat , this one in dark charcoal gray with red seam binding. (And it’s for me!) Pilvi means cloud in Finnish, but my coat will be more like a thunderstorm. #lottajansdottereverydaystyle #handmadewardrobe #namedclothing #sewing
I finished the #pilvicoat from the #lottajansdottereverydaystyle book! This is a simple coat and good for beginners, I complicated it myself by binding the seams. (I love it, but it’s not necessary.) The pockets are nice and deep, the length is great and I love the weight of the corduroy. I’m just not sure about shorter sleeves on a coat ... ? My daughter picked a great color! This one is hers, I’ll make mine in a larger size. #namedclothing #handmadeclothes #handmadewardrobe

Jury duty tomorrow. Maybe I'll wear my new Esme top from #lottajansdottereverydaystyle made with #allisonglass Handcrafted batik 😉
I have enjoyed making this vast tote. The outer fabric is a cotton canvas from the remnant bin at a local curtaining store and the cotton lining is another charity shop find. I used the Wilma tote pattern in Lotta Jansdotter’s Everyday Style and added a lining and a pocket for phone or keyes. It’s size makes it very versatile, perfect for fabric or yarn shopping or as a beach bag - the entire family’s towels can be carried in it. You could even carry the baby or the dog in it, if they are too tired or too small to walk. Mabel wouldn’t get in it for the photo session, she was concentrating on her daily neck stretches (smoothing out her double chin, I suppose).#stitch #sew #lottajansdotter #lottajansdottereverydaystyle #slowstitching #imadethis #totebag #tote#dogsofinstagram

Finished my dress. It's a big billowy trapeze in fine Indian cotton with a huge practical patch pocket. Just the thing for these warm sunny hayfevery days. I will wear it everywhere and especially in the garden. It's a #patternhack of Lotta Jansdotter's #esmedress

There has been activity at the sewing machine. Decided on a mismatched Liberty print pocket at a jaunty angle for my 13th(?) Esme dress - now officially the pattern I have sewn and wear most. #wip #sewing #lottajansdotter #esmedress #lottajansdottereverydaystyle
New glasses! They are by @ottica_urbani_eyewears and they fold in half, including the legs. Swipe to see them all folded up. I got the frames from Sharman, the owner of @britexfabrics who got them in Italy. She didn’t want them anymore. I had new lenses put in by @opticalunderground and voila! 👓 I really like them. I’m also wearing one of my Pilvi Coats today and a vintage beret.

I wore a lot of different textures tonight when I heard pianist Ahmad Jamal tonight at his fantastic @sfjazz performance. Clockwise from the top: my Named Mimosa Culottes, my red tights, which have a cool texture you can’t see here, my blue Pilvi Coat made from home decor fabric, and my vintage clutch. Swipe to see more of the outfit. Hubby took the 2nd photo, that’s the only one that wasn’t out of focus or my eyes weren’t shut.😂

Day 31 #mmmay18 
Whoo-hoo last day! Things I have learned:

1. Clothes look better when you iron them.
2. I don't like wearing prints. Apart from today. Today I liked wearing prints.
3. Being comfortable wins.
4. I need to make some trousers
5. My me made wardrobe is bigger than I thought. I've learned a lot making it but think it's time to lose some garments and sew with intent here on in. ☺☺☺ #lottajansdottereverydaystyle #esmedress

I made yet another @lottajansdotter #Esme dress! This one is in some amazing chambray linen. Facing was done with blue mattress ticking, just for fun! I love the dark color and relaxed texture. This dress is so comfortable and perfect for so many occasions. I've been wearing it over and over while travelling and it makes me feel pulled together after hours in a car!  I adjusted the pattern on this one, instead of lengthening the tunic along the lines of the kaftan length, I added 8 inches straight down. I had to adjust my other makes because they were too flared out and looked wrong! This look is more streamlined and straight. It doesn't feel restricting, I think because the fabric is so relaxed. Also, I got this fabric for 3$ at the thrift store, and I made my husband a shirt as well! Win win!

My Pilvi Coat was debuted yesterday, and I loved wearing it!! It was perfectly light weight, allowed movement, and has nice big pockets! I am really happy with how it turned out!!

#mmmay18 #memademay2018 week 2. 
1. #farrowdress by #grainlinestudio in a very fine birch organics corduroy 
2. #peppermintjumpsuit by #thefoldline free pattern in #peppermintmagazine. Version 2 in a lovely Japanese linen. Never ever want to take this off! Hacked to have even wider, shorter legs and large patch pockets. Here it is after a day at work, wrinkles and all. 
3. A-line dress from #alabamachanin pattern book in lovely wink organic knit. I cheated and machine stitched it for my winter trip to Thailand. (The book features all the wonderful handstitching techniques, and many versatile wardrobe staples. Highly recommend.) Very comfy! Homemade mala too. 
4. #esmetunic by #lottajansdotter from #lottajansdottereverydaystyle book in a shot cotton. A fabulously fitting basic wardrobe staple. With #inspiracowl designed by graphica on Ravelry. 
6. Yet another #dottieangelfrock this one in a Japanese cotton linen canvas. I moved the pleats down and lined the pockets so I could skip the bias tape. A favorite smock to throw on (just like here in the morning when my daughter took a quick photo for me before school!)

Day 14 of Me Made May and hubby has just asked if this is another new dress and yes! Fresh off the sewing machine here's an Esme tunic from "Lotta Jansdotters Everyday Style" book in yet more remnants  bin special unknown fabric. Most of my stash is from remnants and an occupational hazard working in my local haberdashers! This tunic is fab, yes it probably should have been ironed but I had an extra day looking at fabric/working! #memademay #mmmay18 #lottajansdotter #everydaystyle #esmetunic #mysteryremnant #sewistsofinstagram #sewingproject #makersgonnamake #sewcialists #lottajansdottereverydaystyle

Jumpsuit & bag for the win! I don’t have a serger which the pattern recommends, so I zig-zag stitched the seams except for the last. Definitely wouldn’t do that again! The straight stitch has held up well & is flexible enough to provide for play without tearing. #memademay2018 #memademay #straightgrainpatterns #hoppe #lottajansdottereverydaystyle #baghack #riflepapercofabric #waxedcanvas #oakfabrics
Found some lovely Wisteria💜 to pose by for today's me made May. Another #memadecombo of Morgan jeans with a very hacked Esme tunic to include back buttons and waist inseam front pockets. Looking at these pics I wonder if I should have done an FBA!!! Paisley fabric from @sewcreative_petersfield . Swipe for lovely pewter buttons from @textilegarden and an outtake when a chap was suggesting I pose with both (?!) feet nonchalantly on the wall 😂😂😂! Worn with much loved Lotta from Stockholm clogs.

Realised I’m wearing entirely handmade today so I’m tagging #memademay2018 too. My #esmetop is a Liberty print called Ottoman that I bought from Tessuti Fabrics and my #owynpants are a Spotlight linen. I knitted the simple wrap vest years ago from 8ply wool and instructions on a blog called Raglan Guld. It’s warm without too much weight 👍🏻
