For #MeMadeMay2021 I’m trying to think critically about my handmade wardrobe and the items I reach for most. This is a sample of an upcoming pattern and I already know I’ll be wearing it all summer!
Sorry for the double post, guys, but a few people have asked about the blouse I was wearing in my previous post. This picture shows it in a bit more detail. It’s the @sewoverit #soipussybowblouse, modified to have a wider bow, and with a pleat detail at the wrist instead of the pattern’s cuffs. Made from an ivory crepe I think I got from @minervadotcom years ago (I loved it so much I have 5m in my cupboard for more work blouses 😂).
Hello, world! 👋🏾
This bank holiday weekend I’ve been trying to squeeze in a little sewing time. I cut into this beautiful fabric from @selvedgeandbolts and I’m partway through making a simple jacket from it. It’s got a lovely design with pale gold metallic threads running through the black base fabric. I think I’ll enjoy this!
👋🏾 Just topped up my interfacing supplies, and it reminded me to share this little tip. I keep a little swatch of each interfacing, together with notes on what to use it for and how to apply it. It’s a real time saver when it comes to stocking up because I know exactly which product code I need for which projects, and because I’ve only secured one edge, I can place a swatch of my garment fabric over it and see how they handle together, weight wise. I would then fuse a little test piece to be sure, but this helps to quickly narrow down my selection. It’s also great when I’ve cut off the selvedges and can’t remember which interfacing requires dry heat as opposed to a damp cloth!
