Hooray! Jumping into the #winter10x10 challenge with @leevosburgh and @caroline_joy and am actually really excited.
I was all ready to give this one a miss, but I'm so glad I didn't. I've been in a real wardrobe funk lately and was convinced I had nothing to offer this challenge. But look! I have 10 solid items which I think will mix really well together. It's always so easy to focus on what you don't have isn't it? .
So a quick run down (starting top left to right) 1⃣Black vegan leather booties @vegetarianshoes 2⃣ Stripey turtleneck @Kwiksew #k4069 3⃣ Black jeans made with organic cotton @monki 4⃣ Secondhand trapeeze jumper @madewell 5⃣ light merino sweater with ruffle shoulders @papercutpatterns #kyotosweater @wearethefabricstore 6⃣ Merino dress @sewoveritlondon #soishiftdress 7⃣ Grey stretch denim pencil skirt @sewoveritlondon #soierinskirt 8⃣ vintage cream cardigan 9⃣ plaid dress @namedclothing #helmitunic 🔟 (unseen) black ethically made sneakers @veja
I've been busy finishing off cold weather sewing projects and repairs to wear now and have been inspired to plan what I'm going to make with these warmer knits and sweatshirt fabrics. Top to bottom:
1. Charcoal sweater knit = @papercutpatterns #kyotosweater
2. Orange ponte = @megannielsenpatterns #axelskirt version 2
3. Grey fleece Ikea blanket = @seamworks_sewing #astoria
4. Blue fleece Ikea blanket = @papercutpatterns #animapants
5. Cream with black and red circles = @megannielsenpatterns #axelskirt version 1
6. Grey with black polka dot sweatshirt = @colettepaterns #monetadress or @1_puddlelane_patterns #missrubytuesday
7. Grey quilted jersey = @paprikapatterns #jaspersweater
8. Navy marled sweatshirt = #animapants + @madeit_patterns #dropdress
My last make of this year and my holiday dress in 2017. A @papercutpatterns #kyotosweater lighten intoning dress in green sweatshirting from @stoffifant. Totally copied from @bee_made.
Happy new year to all of you peeps🥂
Still trying to improve my pictures....
My beloved teal rayon blend #kyotosweater @papercutpatterns. I can finally wear it now that the heater works again at the office. I see more of these coming during spring and summer 😎
Present to myself 😆: bottlegreen Kyoto sweater for Christmas! 🎄 I’m totally stoked with how versatile it is - so easy to dress up or down. While I’ve been wearing it with a skirt and high heels for Christmas I’ll definitely get the most wear out of it with jeans and sneakers.
I made a size S and it’s true: this pattern runs big! 😳 I‘m thinking I should have sized down even more... and believe me, I‘m far from being petite and definitely NOT an XS kinda gal. (Not even a size S, to be honest 😅) As fabulously perfect as this viscose knit might be, it didn’t help the sizing either 🤷🏻♀️ And I should probably start taking notes while cutting because I can’t remember if I added some length to the bodice and sleeves. Most probably yes. Whatever. I love it! Will definitely make a short sleeved version to!

I don’t know why but I made myself a Kyoto Sweater in this bloody hot weather 😂 ...I guess this sweater will just have to sit tight in the drawer for a while.. .
Ps. Credit to my amazing sister @grace.kang96 for the lovely present - a tripod!!! So I can take a photo of my handmade items without having to wait for hubby to be home😍 #kyotosweater#papercutpatterns#artgalleryfabrics#frills#imindependent
Used the last of this fabric to try out another sweater pattern. Made it a second time in a stretchier, lighter-weight knit from my stash for more of a t-shirt feel (second picture). I’m not a huge fan of the lavender color but I like how it hangs. #papercutpatterns#kyototee#kyotosweater
Kyoto pattern from @papercutpatterns +molleton de chez @atelierbrunette = ❤️❤️❤️❤️ i know i am the 50.000th one to sew those 2 together but ... that's it!!! 😋😋😋Xmas gifts will have to wait (selfish myself booooh)
A very cheerful delivery arrived from @sewmesunshine.uk yesterday - some lovely @atelierbrunette sweatshirt fabric, destined to become a @papercutpatterns Kyoto jumper, and some @merchantandmills pins, because life is too short for bad pins. And sewing is definitely my therapy!
Late night sewing: pattern hack of the #kyotosweater without the frill. Swipe for more pictures and details. I’m so delighted with this wool jersey by @Etro fabrics that I’m thinking to get more by Monday. The structure and the colour...I love it! About the pattern: well, I need to rework this one. I’ll tell you more later. As I said it was a late night sewing. Anyway, I think this sweater will be one of my favourite garment for the next few months.
Purchased three new patterns: #kochikimono and #kyotosweater by @papercutpatterns and #archershirt by @grainlinestudio Luckily my brother-in-law is an architect with an A0 printer at home. 🤓Skipping assembling phase and do this 🍸instead.
Enjoying my outfit of the day even though it was freakishly warm again and I had to change clothes. My sweatshirt is the Kyoto sweater pattern from @papercutpatterns and the fabric is a livery blue cotton loop terry from Fabric Mart. My jeans are the Eleonore pull on jeans from @jalie_patterns and the fabric is from @joann_stores. #kyotosweater#jaliejeans#eleonorejeans#sewcialists#sewing#fashionover40 @fabricmart
