After having quite an intense time moving house I'm finally back to my Instagram and blog.
My next post for @minervacrafts Blogger Network is going to be live on Sunday, but here is the previous one in case you missed it. It's a @burda_style Gypsy Dress. You can see more pictures and read some info about the pattern and fabric on my blog, link is in the bio! .
So here's my entry for the #cosycardichallenge Thanks to lovely ladies @amanda_isewalot @shesewsvintage @sodburysewing for running this great challenge. I've made the @jenniferlaurenhandmade #junipercardigan with a cotton spandex from @girlcharleeuk. Having one colour doesn't really show off saddle shoulders, so added some close up shots. I'm going to make it a bit bigger next time, so hopefully will have time for another entry!!!😻 #sewing#sewcialist#sewistsofinstagram#memade#handmadeclothes
It's like when I try and abstain from sugar ... I'll be doing really well, until I see a massive Belgian bun, with more icing than is necessary and a massive cherry on top, and I break!! In my defence, I have been tempted by this one for a while now, and when @weaverdee_sew_craft reduced it to £4.16 a metre, I ended up hitting the "add to cart" button, and before I knew what had happened, my lovely postman dropped it off yesterday!! So glad I nabbed some before it inevitably sells out, wish I'd been quicker and got some of the teal!!! 😉happy Friday folks!! #sew#sewist#dressmaking#handmadeclothes#fabric#fabriclove#fabricaddict#prettypretty#nofilter
Tutti Frutti clothing essential leggings coming soon! Essential winter leggings. Made from 92% cotton 8% lycra so super soft and stretchy. They’re made from a thicker loop back cotton in my own leggings pattern. So thicker like jogging bottoms but slim like leggings. I’ve only bought a limited amount of fabric to see how well these sell and if I should add something like this to the range. This first batch are only available up to age 4-5 and I’ll see how they go. I’d love your feedback - would you buy something like this for your child?
Do you remember this gorgeous dress from last summer? It's a party dress that masquerades as a Christmas dress too! WELL......I only have enough fabric left for 2 more! If you don't want to miss out, please message me to order (sizes 1 to 6 only).
So I'm practicing to make a long winter coat for work. This is Vogue VP946. It took a LOT of fabric, but it turned out super cute. I used a wool blend I got from Fabric.com a couple of years ago, and used bias tape on the outer edges after serging. This would be awesome in a fleece, so I may try that this weekend. #sewing#instasewing#handmadeclothes#handmadecoat#voguepatterns#fabricdotcom
