I am making a skirt from this wonderful grunge Mondrian fabric from spoonflower, now I have a welt pocket in it. #spoonflower#memade #isew #whattheartteacherwore #weltpocket #crazyartteacher #memadewardrobe #ilovetosew #spoonflower #imakemyownclothes
Out for a curry on a Monday night with Mr Daisy at Vila Maya, our waiter told us this is one of the top three restaurants in India.  Wearing new #memade #kimono.  kerala #holiday #sewing #holidaysewing #memadewardrobe

New project! I’ve been waiting ages for an excuse to use this purple tartan I found at a garage sale. This is gonna be half #selfishsewing and half a tester for a costume I’m going to start working on very soon.

Another project done. This loose fitting dress will be great for everyday wear. The instructions on the pattern weren't super clear so I ended up "winging" it and it turned out ok. I'm really happy that in the last year I have progressed from a terrified sewer into one that is comfortable with improvisation.

@georgeandgingerpatternco smashed it out of the park with the new RuLo top and dress! You are going to want to head over to the website and grab the pattern while it’s on sale. This pattern is packed with options. The variations are endless! Seriously! Go check it out! 
Pictured is the dress body with full bell sleeves and sleeve ties! (Check out photo #2 for the sleeve ties in action!) I used @sincerelyryleefabrics French Terry for this gorgeous piece!

I made up the Uvita top by @itchtostitch in a lovely vanilla jersey that blends very well into the wall. The pattern is absolutely fab and it’s free! I added a little ruffle to the sleeve (@geoffellis123 calls them ‘froufrou bits’ which I am choosing to interpret positively 😂) and I will be making lots more of this pattern, highly recommend it! #sewing #fabric #dressmaking #memadeeveryday #memadewardrobe #sewistsofinstagram #makersgonnamake #2018rtwfasters #uvitatop #itchtostitch #sewingindie

I pretty much fill sippy cups all day, every day. Momlife can be TOUGH. It can feel monotonous and insignificant. It can be exhausting and yet so fulfilling.

My style has definitely taken a hit (did I ever have style??) since becoming a mom - most days you’ll find me in a hoodie or tunic and leggings.

This one has become a favorite here - comfy, cozy, and fun colorblocking options.

I think you should make one for yourself, too!!! You’ll find a link to the pattern in my profile. It’s an affiliate link - so you’ll be helping me fill those sippy cups, too!!! 😍

Cheers to real life! 👍🏻 #PetiteStitchery #PSrose #momlife #sippycupsalldayeveryday #memadewardrobe

Yesterday's projects: dyed a little rayon dress that was thrifted, wearing it with this floral maxi today.
.
Made and dyed this funky 70s-inspired rayon knit into a maxi.

Took in the waist of the magenta rayon floral knit that I made back in September, because I've lost so much weight.
.
Altered this black wool crepe skirt that was way too big at the waist, and added a yoga waist.

Check out my first ever attempt at #stripematching 
This is the #laneraglan by #heyjunepatterns 
Originally I wanted a long sleeved shirt, but that striped Jersey was so light I decided to do lace sleeves for a summery feel.

A new piece of fabric,  I got it from my #localfabricshop on this morning's dog walk. I was supposed to only be getting thread and bias tape but as a sale was on,  I looked at the fabric. Now I am going to have fun deciding on a pattern for a new dress.... #sewing #memade #fabricshop #fabric #dresspattern  #sewcialist #memadewardrobe
Stripey POPPY Blouse with lace trim for @hoklian_

The way the lace trimming behaves just bothers me and it looks kinda weird. Does anyone knows how to fix this?

A month ago I decided to start sewing for two reasons. Firstly, I've grown tired of finding pretty things and noping out after seeing the price tag. Impulse shopping occurred immediately after this decision and pictured above is my first fabric purchase. I bought far too much (2.5m) and I'm glad that I did. I'm saving it for a sleeveless blazer and trouser suit which I hope to create at the end of this year once I've acquired the skills. 
The other direction I'm excited for is learning to sew my own lingere. I cannot believe in all the time I've struggled to find a decent bra that it has never occurred to me to make my own. I do not understand why padded bras have become standard. I require a soft cup bra that moulds to my breast for shape. 
My first sewing class is this evening and I am stupid excited for what's to come.

Some new sewing on the blog this morning! This is a heavily modified @paprikapatterns Onyx shirt (remember when that was all I ever sewed?) in Red or Dead fabric from the deep stash. .
It’s just a fraction too tight on the hips and I’m trying to decide whether to shorten it properly (it’s turned under in this picture) or wait and see if once I start running again regularly(bah illness and weather/Edinburgh Council lack of gritting on pavements) I will lose a couple of cms round the hips and bum. I think I prefer the longer length but it’s maybe ridiculous to assume I can make my body fit my clothes, and the whole point of sewing is that I don’t have to!

It might be grey and rainy in London this morning but I'm happy because I'm wearing my favourite sweatshirt! This is my latest creative project, the @sewhouse7 #toastersweater. I've set myself the challenge this year to sew more jersey garments. I love sewing and making clothes and jersey is a fabric I wear a lot but have always been nervous to work with. I shouldn't have been because this sweater was so easy to make! I used @raystitch sweatshirt fleece and it's so cosy I to wear - I LOVE it 😍I'll be doing a blog post on sewing/ dressmaking soon so watch this space ✂️

I made a new work shirt today and I am super pleased. The seams are all finished with flat fell so it’s nearly identical inside and out, and this collar is by far and away the best I’ve ever executed. #sewing #handsewn #memade #memadeeveryday #memadewardrobe

I'm starting to sew for shorter bits of time in an effort to accomplish more. So far so good! Also, yes, this fabric is very glittery. Didn't realize that when I bought it online. 🤷🏽‍♀️

My first pair of #gingerjeans are finally finished! Cropped to a perfect length for ankle booties and my short 5.4 height. I learned so much in this process about pants fitting and I’m sure there is still a lot to learn but I can say that I’ve already started my second pair, added in the fit adjustments noted from this pair, and what a world of difference from the start. I’m just gonna keep at it until I get them right (all those darn knee wrinkles) #sewdetermined 
Fabric is a midweight black stretch denim from @califabrics.

Ok y’all, only three weeks late... That’s not so bad, right? My top 9 of 2017! 
It’s great to have a sweeping view of what my most popular makes were last year. I love the variety and that every post is a different garment, but 7 out of 9 are dresses or skirts, so it’s probably best for me to branch out a bit more in 2018 😋 I’m not really one for making sewing goals (I legit made 0/9 of my #makenine2017, anyone else fall into this category?), so let’s just say... I’ll make at least one pair of pants this year!

I’m pleased with the print balance on this one but it feels far too springy for such a wet January weekend! ☔️☔️☔️ #fabric #sewing #dressmaking #memadewardrobe #memadeeveryday #2018rtwfasters #sewistofinstagram #makersgonnamake #patternmatching
🇬🇧✂️➖DIY Skirt ➖✂️🇬🇧
.
This is only my second sewing project of 2018 and I am so pleased that I am actually making things that I can wear!❤️🖤 Although I don’t love the outcome of this skirt (the zipper got torn out three times and is now wonky !) my skills are improving and I am starting to understand patterns. I still have a hell of a lot of time left in 2018 to progress my skills. Patience is a virtue and all that jazz...*yoga breathes* 🎶🎵🙏🏼 .

#yearofcolour | ❤️ to see that my 2017 year of cookie is so diverse. My mother-in-❤️, adorably dressed and showing off the dress I made her for Christmas and wearing one of her hats the boys gave her a couple years ago. So proud of her, she has lost 50+pounds in the past year or so and still going.

I call this my IKEA top because of the blue and yellow. Guess where I’m going today! 
It’s the #sewoverit #alicetop #soialicetop which is part of the sewing with knits course—the Emma Dress is also part of that course and both are great patterns.

A peek of my second #grainlinehadley ready for the next @sewmesunshine.uk blog. I decided to use the selvedge for the whole neckline facing. It was just too pretty to leave out! I added some iron-on hem tape to make it sit flat. Fabric is monstera leaf lawn by @riflepaperco - available at @sewmesunshine.uk #riflepapercofabric #cottonandsteelcloset #cottonandsteel #riflepaperco #grainlinestudio #selvedge #memadeeveryday #memadewardrobe #creativeme #makersgonnamake #monsteraleaves #menageriefabric

It took me a while to find the perfect pants pattern. But I found it thanks to @knipmode . It has welt pockets, a zipper fly and is high waisted! Couldn't be happier💕

I made the pants in the smallest size (xs), but unfortunately it is still a bit big in the waist area (that's why a mockup is important I guess😜). It won't be a problem though, I already found a cute belt to pair with it!

I did make the pants a tad shorter and tighter in the bottom for a more casual feel and skipped the vertical welt pockets in the front (they didn't seem practical to me). Pattern: "bloemenpak" Knipmode magazine August 2017

I made a teddy bear coat!! It’s so soft and snuggly!  Now I just need to find some cold weather so I can wear it!  I used #burda116 #fauxfur coat pattern and slimmed down the collar a bit.  All in all the fur was easy to sew with and very forgiving, however I did have my fair share of seam ripping and fixing things 🙈  I’m happy with how this turned out and I’ll post pics wearing it later this week. 😊#COATMAKINGPARTY

Just completed my second #2018makenine. This is the #rumitank from @christinehaynes and is by far the simplest make on my list. I made this one up as an activewear top using this lovely fabric from @guthrieghani in the 'Dawn blur' colourway. Looking at the pattern I thought it might come up a little short for my liking-I'm not tall by any stretch of the imagination but am very tummy conscious. For that reason I took the unusual step for me of making a toile and found it was shorter than I like so I added two inches to the bottom. I could probably go down a size but I wanted a looser fit so I'm happy with this version. It is a quick sew and I found it a bit boring to make but can see it being made over and over again as it is a great staple. I will possibly make it again as activewear but also as a pj top as my preference is for woven bottoms and a jersey top and I could combine this with my go-to pattern for pj trousers, Margot.

The shirt dress of my dreams! This is my first sew over it vintage shirt dress, and there will be more! Perfect together with #valdreskofta.  #soivintageshirtdress #sewoverit #sysysy #memadewardrobe #soishowoff#shirtmonth
Staying in the warm today with my @craftsy_  course. I really want to improve on my fitting this year and this course is sooo good! I highly recommend it. #memadewardrobe #craftsy #suzyfurrer

And because I am obviously still a Melburnian even though I'm living in Brissy - yet another black tshirt! #memadewardrobe #wardrobebasics
Sorry for the bad photo but black knit pants are more difficult to photograph than to sew. These are my secret pyjamas - pants that feel like pjs but don't look like them when they're on (I promise - even though here they do look like pj pants here!) Perfect travel pants! #wardrobebasics #memadewardrobe #jalie3355 #jalie

I finally finished the 4 black knit tops that have been lurking in my UFO pile since early last year. 2 were converted into short sleeves - because whilst 4 long sleeved black tops is perfectly reasonable in Melbourne, it's a little OTT for Brisbane 😂 #memadewardrobe #wardrobebasics

Enjoyed a fun night out tonight for Jimmy’s work employee appreciation event. We got to dress up, eat dinner without cutting up anyone else’s food, and gamble with pretend money! (We lost it all!) It was also my first true test of my #RTWfast2018 commitment to not buying any store bought clothes. I made this hi-lo tunic / dress, leggings, and threw on my favorite pair of knee high wedge boots. Not too bad for no practice run and fabrics I hadn’t worked with before!  Pretty cool challenge.... I think it’s going to be a fun, creative year!

Thanks to my parents for hanging with all four kids tonight - we very much appreciate it!!! 😍

Oh.... and I may not be a model, but I could potentially pass as a flamingo! 😂
