I’m definitely feeling spring in the air with this beautiful liberty of London fabric 🌷🌷🌷
.
I am making a pair of Named Ninni culottes, the pattern calls out for stretch fabric, but I’m taking a risk and seeing how they work out in lawn, worst case they will make lovely pj’s ☺️
.
I’ll keep you posted!

I was really low on comfy/casual tops so made myself a few a couple of weeks ago. This is the @iam_patterns Zebre top, I just love the gathered bell sleeves ☺️💖☺️
.
I made it from the most beautiful art gallery fabrics jersey (flowers and stripes make me happy) it’s such fantastic quality and washes so well! I got the fabric and the contrast jersey for the cuff and waistband from @minervacrafts .
The Zebre top is really quick to make, and other than my Overlocker struggling with all the fabric on the gathered sleeve, it went together really well.
.
What are you Sewing this weekend?

I’ve been totally wiped out with the flu for the past 6 days so I’m way behind with everything! 😣 but I’m determined to get back to some kind of normality this weekend.
.
One of the first things on my list is to plan out what to make from my spring fabric stash rather than buying new fabric, so the #makeyourstash challenge that is being hosted by @timetosew and @pilar_bear is just perfect!
.
Check out the details over on their accounts and be sure to join in 💖💖💖

So today I join the 40 club 😳 but they recon that life begins at 40 don’t they 🎉✨
.
You may have seen on my stories yesterday that I’m on a mission to scrap bust my fabric, I had quite a bit of remnant jersey in my stash so decided to make a couple more of the @ninaleelondon Southbank sweaters, you can’t have too many, right?
.
This chevron one is from Riley Blake jersey and the floral one is Art Gallery, both are super quality and work perfectly with my @tillybuttons Cleo ☺️
.
I literally had both of these tops whipped up within 1.5 hours 😊😊😊
.
Have a wonderful day!

I finished just in time! .
This is the @jenniferlaurenhandmade afternoon dress, and yes I did get it finished in an afternoon, I love how simple but elegant it is ☺️ I paired it with the @seamworkmag Jill coatigan, which I have made up today (I promise you the hem is even, I must be standing wonky 😂)
.
They have both turned out lovely and neither were very difficult to sew, I did have a few problems with the neckline on the coatigan, but it worked out fine in the end 🧡🧡🧡
.
And the best thing is that I finally made a dress that worked well with my beautiful vintage glass buttons that I got quite some time ago now from @bertiesbuttons .
.
What have you been creating this weekend?

I need to make a new outfit with tight timescales 😳 so I’ve decided on the @jenniferlaurenhandmade 1940’s style afternoon dress, I love this style of dress and hope that it works well with this beautiful floral fabric that’s in my stash (I’ve no idea what it is).
.
I’m going to team it with the @seamworkmag coatigan that I’m going to make from this wooden blend fabric that I got from the Abakhan fill a bag sale, how beautiful is that peach colour.
.
Right I’d better get to it!! .

I purchased this tiny piece of velvet from the remnant baskets back in December, it literally cost about £2.50! I have never worked with velvet before but I couldn’t resist this colour 💖💖💖
.
It was a tiny piece (less than 1m) so I wasn’t sure if I would have enough to make a @ninaleelondon #southbanksweater so I was super pleased when I did! ☺️☺️☺️
.
I did have to shorten the sleeves as there wasn’t enough fabric for the full length, which is a shame, but it’s still turned out ok as a layering piece for winter, then the shorter sleeves will be perfect for spring! 🌷🌷🌷
.
I must say that velvet isn’t my favourite fabric to work with, especially when trying to pin it as it fights against itself! Oh and how it explodes when cutting it with scissors ✂️😳

It’s killing me not to share this gorgeous Merchant and Mills linen dress in all its glory, I’m saving it to share for my entry for a challenge in February (one of my things for this year is to take part in more challenges), but here’s a sneaky peek 💖💖💖
.
.
I’m in love with the fabric, and I know that it will just get better with age, and I don’t have to worry about it creasing because linen is supposed to be creased, right?

So far in 2018 my Sewing has been a bit mental! That’s because I’m making myself an outfit for each night of a little break I’ve got coming up in Feb, this is the final project so then I’ll slow down ☺️
.
This is one if the beautiful linens that I got from @merchantandmills and I’ve pondered for several weeks about what to make, I’ve decided on the @papercutpatterns Sigma dress, check out todays live video where I tell you a little bit more 🧡🧡🧡

Here is my #smyly2018 dress, thanks so much to @lisakisch for asking me to be an ambassador for this wonderful community event.
.
Incase you are not familiar, it is all about how “Sewing makes you love yourself” and how Sewing can help with mental health and positive body image, both of these things I have struggled with in my past (in a connected way) so I have shared my story on how Sewing has helped with this over on my YouTube channel (link in bio)
.
This was a tough one to make but I have never participated in such a positive challenge so I thought that I’d just go for it!
.
I’m also participating in the @Makelight portrait photography focus, of course being a Sewing blogger means that you have to take portraits, but mine were mainly looking away from the camera (as you may have noticed), so my key focus was to change my issues around this and just look at the god damn camera!
.
I made the @wearlemonade Dita dress which is totally different to what I have made before and I love how it turned out 💖💖💖 it’s reversible so that you can wear the wrap at the front or the back, how cool is that!
.
Thank you @lisakisch @hattie_van_der_krohn @athinakakou for hosting a great challenge and be sure to join in if you haven’t already.

My lovely Daughter @bry.th is finalising her portfolio for uni applications. She made this beautiful dress which is the @victorypatterns Trina dress which is a gorgeous kimono wrap dress 💖✨💖✨ .
It was great to help her to learn the techniques, the fabric was not easy to work with, but she did it, and did it well! and also embellished it with lovely fabric roses (that she also made)
.
She wanted a photography element to her portfolio too so we went off to the woods so that she could take some photos, and she managed to get this great shot! I love how the light is shining through the sleeve ✨✨✨ .
Hasn’t she done a smashing job!

This @merchantandmills linen twill was just amazing to work with, it’s very, very special 💖💖💖
.
I just have the zip and hems to do then it’s all finished, I’ve tried it on and love how it drapes but holds structure at the same time, it works perfectly with the box pleats on the #zeenadress .
Also, thanks so much to everyone for the lovely messages about the live videos, after initially finding it very nerve wracking, I actual really enjoyed doing them and look forward to doing more ☺️☺️☺️

Here’s my finished @byhandlondon #zeenadress made from a duvet cover! 💚💙💚💙
.
I’m really pleased with how it turned out and I “braved it” this morning and added a live video to show you in “real life” (how nerve wracking is doing a live video 😳 ) check it out in my stories before it disappears.
.
I’d definitely recommend this pattern, it’s fab!

I wasn’t sure whether this Orla Kiely duvet cover would work as a dress, but it’s worked out pretty well! ✨✨✨
.
This is a practice run of the @byhandlondon #zeenadress (before I cut into my gorgeous Merchant and Mills linen), the box pleats are just amazing! And this was a pleasure to sew.
.
Unfortunately the daylight had gone before I’d finished the zip and hem, so I’ll have to share it in all it’s glory another day!
.
Oh and I hope you like the little Sewing tips that I’m showing in my stories (I’m saving them to my story highlights if you want to take a look).

Super excited that my first guest blog post for @minervacrafts has gone out today ☺️✨
.
This is the @namedclothing Stella blouse, it’s so good, I just adore the squared collar!
.
The fabric is @atelierbrunette bye bye birdie cotton lawn, I love this shade of mustard and the geometric birds make a little bit special 🧡💛✨
.
Be sure to check out the post over on the Minerva blog, I’ve included a few “how to’s” within the post, there is a link in my bio.

A sneaky peek at my first project of 2018 ☺️💖☺️💖
.
How gorgeous is this Liberty of London fabric? It’s not my go to colour way, but it’s soooo lovely, it’s quite stormy looking which is very fitting to the weather today ⛈⛈⛈.

I’ve finally selected my #2018makenine ☺️
.
I reached all of my Sewing goals in 2017 (yay to that) so in 2018 I want to focus on the details, trying new fabrics and a “proper” bra, so here’s my plan
.
1. @colettepatterns Penny dress, I still struggle with Button holes sometimes so thought that this would be perfect .
2. @orange_lingerie bra, I really struggle with RTW bras that fit well so I so hope that I can successfully make one.
.
3. @wearlemonade Dita dress, I’ve never made a wrap dress and love that this is reversible so you can have the wrap at the front or back, I’m actually half way through this make and it’s coming together pretty well.
.
4. @closetcase.patterns Morgan jeans, I loved making my Gingers (probably proudest Sewing moment if 2017) so thought I’d try a different style.
.
5. @merchantandmills Landgate coat, I’m saving up for the Merchant and mills oilskin fabric so think this will be pretty amazing
.
6. @closetcase.patterns s Charlie Caftan, I plan to make this in a gorgeous linen
.
7. @wearlemonade Claudia play suit, I think that this looks so cool and will be perfect for spring and English summers
.

I’ve finally selected my #2018makenine  ☺️ . I reached all of my Sewing goals in 2017 (yay to that) so in 2018 I want to focus on the details, trying new fabrics and a “proper” bra, so here’s my plan . 1. @colettepatterns Penny dress, I still struggle with Button holes sometimes so thought that this would be perfect . 2. @orange_lingerie bra, I really struggle with RTW bras that fit well so I so hope that I can successfully make one. . 3. @wearlemonade Dita dress, I’ve never made a wrap dress and love that this is reversible so you can have the wrap at the front or back, I’m actually half way through this make and it’s coming together pretty well. . 4. @closetcase.patterns Morgan jeans, I loved making my Gingers (probably proudest Sewing moment if 2017) so thought I’d try a different style. . 5. @merchantandmills Landgate coat, I’m saving up for the Merchant and mills oilskin fabric so think this will be pretty amazing . 6. @closetcase.patterns s Charlie Caftan, I plan to make this in a gorgeous linen . 7. @wearlemonade Claudia play suit, I think that this looks so cool and will be perfect for spring and English summers . 8. @closetcasepatterns Sasha trousers, after the Gingers fitted so well I definitely need these trousers in my life, ankle grazer length of course . 9. @helens__closet Suki robe, I want to lose my “Sewing with silk virginity” with this lovely kimono robe . Can’t wait! ☺️💖☺️💖 . . . . . . . . . . . #sewersofinstagram  #createmakeshare  #makelight  #ilovetosew  #sewsewsew  #fortheloveofsewing  #sewcialists  #memadeeveryday  #sewingmakesmehappy  #instasew  #isew  #memade  #seamstresslife  #diyfashion  #homesewn  #handmadewardrobe  #sewingwithstyle  #sewinglifestyle  #sewingblogger  #sewallthethings  #ilovesewing 
Happy New Year everyone 💖🎉✨🎊💖 I hope that there are not too many sore heads.

Today is all about planning for me and the first project in the plan is to make my garment for #smyly2018 which is a lovely challenge hosted by @hattie_van_der_krohn @athinakakou and @lisakisch which is all about how “Sewing makes you love yourself”, it’s all about body positivity and how Sewing can help with mental health.
.
I am super pleased to be an ambassador for this challenge and my garment is planned out ready to sew.
