My last #sewvemberchallenge post (I promise after today I will only post interesting progress pictures!). It’s getting there - I hacked 4 inches off the bottom and in much happier with the length. It still needs a little tweaking but it’s packed to go to Mom’s house with me tomorrow so I can get her expert help. Thank you @theremnantwarehouse for this great challenge (and for naming me a runner up! I can’t wait to pick some fabric to use my discount on!). #sewing#sewvember#sleepyseamstress#terriscoat#memadewardrobe#ididit
Does anyone else get impatient for the fabric to dry and speed up the process with the iron? And get impatient with that and cut out damp fabric? Or is that just me? Day 30 and final of @theremnantwarehouse #sewvemberchallenge . Thanks for checking in as I sewed or did something sewing related every day this month. I'm done!
Last day of the #sewvemberchallenge
finished my first pair of #annaknicker (s) in @cloud9fabrics voile, they're going to be perfect summer pyjamas! Now I need to find the slip pattern I have so I can make a matching top @theremnantwarehouse
One style arc sunny top finished! It only took a few hours and is oh-so-snuggly!! It's 33°c here at the moment, but when the weather drops in a few days (#melbourneweather ) I'll post an action shot! Lovely fabric from the fabric store

Sewing plans: the style arc sunny top! Temperatures are meant to drop during the few days we are going away...and I need a new jumper. So now a *winter project* is skipping que. Using this lovely salt and pepper fabric from the fabric store. Putting the pattern together this evening.....

November 28. Daily sewing @theremnantwarehouse #sewvemberchallenge . Did not feel well today so in between laying down sessions I made this simple skirt #newlook6129 . It's my favourite simple elastic waist skirt. It's a very easy make and it distracted me from aches. I had already cut this out some weeks ago.
Finished size 12 @oliverands #sunnydayshorts lengthen by 3 inches.
She is on the slim side but size 10 sunnyday shorts I made earlier this year fit her just right about now and I worried it would be too small in a few months. It looks ginormous around her hip and tummy but I guess she will grow into it. 🤔
Fabric is linen from @spotlightstores.
Ok peeps - I’m frustrated and I don’t know if what I’m unhappy with is my body or my sewing. It’s going to be a winter coat so I know it needs more ease than a dress, but I feel like it looks like a circus tent (I know part of that is just because it’s muslin and not my fabric). It needs to be MUCH shorter. Anyone have any thoughts on ease? I added four inches, which I thought was fairly standard, but I think it’s way too much. #sewvemberchallenge#sewvember#sewing#sewingsuggestions#sewinghelpneeded @theremnantwarehouse
Out and about all day .... so no actual sewing, but I purchased @megannielsenpatterns flint pants and shorts pattern today. 😀 you know I had to do something sewing related for @theremnantwarehouse #sewvemberchallenge . 😎
Running out of bobbin thread is always inconvenient, but running out of top thread is even worse, on a Saturday afternoon after @theremnantwarehouse has closed.😔🤔will I have enough to finish my objects? Regardless, I have completed some sewing for day 25 of #sewvemberchallenge
