Trying to fit the hem of my skirt... not an easy thing for me because of my big #popo 😂 And the cold isn’t helping either 🤧

This is a series of firsts: first #memade stripey tee; first time using a twin needles; first proper use of my new overlocker; first time pattern matching. And first time I've run out of fabric which explains why the sleeves are cut on the bias, it's the only way I could squeeze them out! 
I actually kind of love it though and I need to get better at accepting mistakes so I'm gonna wear it a lot and be proud that I threaded my overlocker correctly on the first go.

This is the #mandyboattee made with super soft jersey...which I think was from @sewmesunshine.uk but I can't actually remember 🤷 Pattern matching knowledge gleamed from @tillybuttons (her blog is THE BEST for a novice like me)

I made a @brindilletwig pattern bodysuit this afternoon. Because we're having a small human at the end of May 😱🐒 It's a girl. But I love grey, and gold stags anyway. ✂️ This was my first time working with both jersey and fold-over elastic. Way too messy zig-zag stitching on the binding as I'm still learning how to control both materials 🙈 Does anyone in Singapore know where to get baby-sized ringer binding? (Or good online sellers?) Lye Nai Siong, Brighton, and Spotlight don't carry it. And fold-over elastic just doesn't look as comfortable.

Seeing what you create with my patterns is the most satisfying part of the process 😘 just look at this #cc_katie dress by @katieanchetasewing 💕 
She certainly has an eye for colour and print 🙌

I further modified the Miette dress draft to include a partial button placket, and a higher waistline. In a particularly thin woven Japanese cotton lawn, very "resort collection" 😝 (Does drafting the pattern to written instructions, modifying the sleeves, waist, and adding a placket finally count as making it "my" design? 🙄)

Not too shabby for the #firstdress I’ve ever sewn, eh! 👗Had a vision to incorporate a zipper and fully finished bindings...but ended up with raw edges, asymmetry, and a pocket. Naming this one the “perfect imperfect dress” 😏 #sackdress #whitsews

Day 2 of #molliemakersweek and the prompt today is “you” so hello! 👋 I’m Elisalex (pronounced El-eee-za-lex, not Electrolux 😂) and I’m one half of indie sewing pattern label @byhandlondon ✂️ As this picture very accurately conveys, I spend my days looking fabulous as I pretend to hand sew hems whilst coyly flirting with my bookshelf💋
Reality: I work from home (mostly in my pjs), developing sewing patterns, putting together sewalongs and tutorials for our blog and various crafting mags (actually working on a piece for @molliemakes today!) and teaching others the joy of sewing. Thanks for swinging by! 🐒

Today I'm not featuring a sewing technique but instead would like to reveal the next pattern to be released! ☺️ All the techniques mentioned so far here will be used in making these #capritrousers (or #capripants If you like)🖨✂️💕 This is a great pattern to practice all those little details that contribute to making a perfect pair of 👖 ✨and✨ it is can be easily made into a shorter or longer style ☺️ In fact, wouldn't it be a good idea to mark different length options on the pattern? 🙇 I think I will do just that 🙌

I'm an ambassador for this fabulous new sewalong (running between now and 28th feb) called Sewing Makes You Love Yourself - hosted by @hattie_van_der_krohn @athinakakou and @lisakisch! I'm going to be focusing on how sewing has helped me to understand how my disabilities affect my body and given me a way to deal with that.  If you would like to participate, all you have to do is sew a garment that makes you feel beautiful! What kind of garment that is, is totally up to you! On the other hand we would like to invite you to tell your own story on how sewing has changed your life and/or your body image.

From scraps to sweater... I had so many leftovers from my skirt sewing, that I could make an entire new clothing 😂
I hope it will not fall apart after the first washing inside a washing machine 😱😱

We had a big website overhaul yesterday and have completely updated our dressmaking category.  We now have 12 different classes ranging from beginners to intermediate with both adults and kids catered for.

If you need us to help you out with a payment plan or to find other suitable dates please do not hesitate to get in touch.

I’ve made a new coat! This is the Shawl Collar Coat pattern from the @themakersatelier .The material is wool and cashmere, I made a leap of faith and ordered it from China via AliExpress. A leap that most definitely paid off and I’ll be doing again. Gold and burgundy paisley lining is from fancy silk.

Bought the pattern at the @thegbsblive , the first pattern I’ve bought from an independent pattern company. The pattern for the coat is unlined, but they did a blog post on their website showing how to line the coat. The pattern itself is great to sew up and the instructions and diagrams were clear and easy to follow. The blog post for the lining however is where I came unstuck. There were no diagrams detailing attaching the lining to the main body and as someone who is self taught and still learning, this where I became a bit unsure. So when it came to hemming the coat at the end I realised that I shouldn’t have attached the lining on all the way to the bottom of the coat. But as I’d already overlocked it I was unable to unpick it, so the corners are not quite how they should be. A more experienced dressmaker would have known not to do that without it being explicitly detailed in the instructions, I’ll just have to add it to the lessons I’m learning as I go. 
On a whole I’m extremely happy with the finished coat. I really like the style and silhouette and the only alteration I made from my original mock up was to lengthen it. I can definitely see myself making this again in different fabrics.

The more I sew the more I’m learning I have to look beyond the styling and aesthetic of the company selling the patterns and just look really closely at the pattern itself and the shape of the garment. Because a lot of independent pattern companies market towards the same ‘type’ of woman, who apparently all want a plain capsule wardrobe in muted colours! And that is definitely not me!

Happy Christmas Eve everyone! I'm currently battling a cold ('tis the season lol), but while I'm on the mend I thought I'd share my most recent project - my office holiday party was a little over a week ago, so (me being me), I decided to make my dress :)
.
Also what in the heck - I somehow passed 320 likes when I wasn't looking!? Thank you so much for all the continued support! 😊❤️
.
Hope everyone has a safe and happy Christmas! 🎄☃🎁

Happy Christmas Eve Instagrammers! I figured it was high time I share my latest make with you. This is my rose gold sequinned @papercutpatterns Sigma dress for the festive season. Sequinned fabric was from the lovely @cottonreelstudio, and probably the nicest lining fabric I have worked with from @trurofabrics. Full details and photos up in the blog now [link in profile]

Hep kışlık dikecek değiliz de mi! Evdeki pamuklu astarı kullanınca az kabarık bir elbise oldu. Ama bu kadar nemli bir yer için tam isabetmiş. Son fotoğraftaki yaka detayında, biye az dolgun ve geri kıvrılmış  görünüyor. Aldırmayın, öyle değil 😎 #sewalong #makeitsewcial #dressmaking #diydressmaker #dikiş #dikişsever #dikişaşkı #turkeysews #burdaturkiye

In spite of being a 'modern' sewing pattern, this Regency Ballgown still requires nearly 80 inches of invisible hand stitching to create a casing from grosgrain ribbon.

Bleh!! 😜

The #crownroyal #dress at the moment. I need to place the zipper lower and finish the frills on the skirt portion of the #flamenco dress. #diy #diydressmaker #freeideas #free #recycle #repurpose #repurposed
This dress has an amazing wavy seam feature at the waistline, it's the #V1566 and part of the new collection from Vogue Patterns

The @inthefolds #SlouchyCardigan was such a quick make the only change I made was shortening it by 4 inches. See #linkinprofile
Onu diyorum... Dikmesi değil de paylaşması iş. Geçen sene diktiklerimden bu etek. Kumaşını Mericiğimle beraber almıştık. Nasıl heyecanlanmıştım o ilk karsilastigimiz an. Kapı açılır açılmaz bir çığlık bir kıyamet... Ergen kizlar gibiydik yeminle...😂😂 @meribagatur Eve döner dönmez de diktim, giydirdim ufaklığa. Paylaşmak bu güne nasipmiş. 😉😉 #sewalong #makeitsewcial #dressmaking #diydressmaker #dikiş #dikişsever #dikişaşkı #turkeysews #burdaturkiye
