Well the weather forecast was right here in Stoke! Yay to a snow day 💖❄️💖❄️
.
I finished my @ninaleelondon #southbank dress within a couple of hours yesterday, so I’m super cozy today and ready to go for a winter walk (and maybe a snowball fight) with the family. .
Check out the details of this lovely pattern on the blog (link in bio).
.
Have you had snow where you are?

We have 2 days of snow forecast ❄️❄️❄️ so what better excuse is there to start my cosy @ninaleelondon southbank sweatshirt dress 💖💖💖
.
So the cup of tea is ready, the pattern is cut out and the Overlocker is ready to go!
.
I got this lovely baby pink fabric from my local @Abakhanfabrics it is 2.5m wide so I’m hoping to get a couple of Makes out of this piece!

Now that the Christmas decoration marathon has ended I’m back to planning Handmade clothing ☺️💖☺️💖
.
I need to make an outfit for a Great Gatsby theme fancy dress party for NYE, I stumbled across these beautiful fancy fabrics in the remnant basket at @abakhanfabrics and was thinking of making the @seamworkmag Catarina dress and bling it up a bit!
.
What do you think? Will it look “Great Gatsby” style enough?
.
I’m not normally a fancy fabric fan, I just don’t wear them, but I actually really love them and hope to make it into something a bit special.

The Christmas tree decoration mission continues! ❤️🎄💚🎄❤️
.
This is a Tilda Angel in her pj’s! They are so much fun to make, but I have established that I have a slight dislike to filling them with stuffing, it takes longer than the actual Sewing! Any tips on making this less painful?
.
My tree goes up on Saturday and there is still so much to make! Oh well I can add as I go ☺️

I’m super excited for Christmas and spent yesterday making Tilda Christmas tree decorations, as you may have seen on my stories 🎄💖🎄💖
.
My favourite make of yesterday is the adorable pixie, how cute is she!! .
.
I think I may be getting addicted to making Tilda ☺️ .
Oh, and I also love, love, love my vintage gates that I got from @oldwhyteinteriors what a wonderful back drop they make!!

I made this @papercutpatterns flutter Blouse as a dress version last year from this adorable stag pattern Michael Miller quilting cotton, however I haven’t worn it much as it was a bit clingy and stuck to my tights 😳
.
So, I decided to shorten it to turn it into a top instead, and I’m sure that I’ll get loads more Wear from it now! I kept it slightly longer so that I can still wear it with leggings, but it can also quite easily tuck into jeans (swipe to see).
.
I think that it’s a great alternative to a Christmas jumper as I’m not a Christmas jumper type of gal 🎄❤️🎄❤️🎄
.

Do you like to dress up or down on Christmas Day?

It’s that time of year again when I make @seamworkmag Almada robes as gifts for friends ☺️
.
This version is made from cotton chambray in a denim blue, and I’ve used contrasting Liberty of London for the cuffs and tie.
.
I also lengthened it by about 6”
.
I really enjoy making this pattern as there is nothing difficult about it al all!
.
What do you make for your friends for Christmas?

#bpsewvember day 19 motto - my motto is to embrace the mistakes.
.
This is my @sewoveritlondon Betty dress, I love this pattern, it’s so simple but also very elegant, and the fit is perfect, however I made a poor choice in fabric.
.
The fabric is gorgeous, a very heavy weight cotton twill, in the most gorgeous shade of pink, but oh how it creases! .
This put me off wearing it for some time, but then I decided to love the creases too!
.
I never throw a make away if I make a mistake, and still wear my very early Makes which are full of them to this day, after all, I always learn from them! ☺️💖

I haven’t really added new stock to the shop for some time as I’ve been focusing on the blog and YouTube channel, but seen as Christmas is not too far away, I’ve just listed the last few reversible Christmas dresses that I have in stock (link in bio), so do check them out if you have a little girl in your life who would love a Christmas dress! .

I made this dress a few years ago and totally forgot that I had it!
.
It’s the @simplesewuk Ruby dress made from Liberty of London tana lawn.
.
This dress is no where near perfect as I made this when I was still quite new to Sewing, but I still love to wear my Makes from before I really knew what I was doing as it reminds me how much I’ve improved, and most of the imperfections are on the inside so shhhh, don’t tell!
.
Do you wear your makes that are far from perfect?

Here’s the first of many! Little mini Tilda angels, how adorable! 💖💚💖💚

#bpsewvember day 3 - Happy accident
.
Hot off the press is my #gingerjeans (link in bio) and yes I made a mistake, see the blog post for the details 😳
.
However, I’m super happy that I made jeans so who cares about a mistake, you have to make them to learn is my view!
.
The @closetcase.patterns web class was fantastic and my lovely denim was from @dittofabrics 💙✂️💙✂️
.
Oh and my top is the @tillybuttons Agnes top with gathered sleeves, made from Liberty of London jersey, love this Sewing pattern ☺️

#bpsewvember day 2 - sentimental .
So, there are lots of reasons why I Sew, struggling to get good fitting ready to wear, not wanting to follow the high street “what’s in fashion”, in the early days to save cash (although that doesn’t really work out any more) ....
.
... but my main reason is the sense of creativity and achievement. I also have a huge passion for collecting vintage sewing “stuff”. I love the fact that someone else has followed very similar techniques to me, to make their wardrobe from whatever era they are from.
.
This beautiful vintage Stockman is one of my most cherished possessions, I got her from an antique shop, and what I loved the most is that she came with a story, she was named Rose by her previous owners many years ago, she was jointly owned by 2 ladies who went to fashion School, one lady went on to be a theatre costume designer, the other had a change in career and was a master potter.
.
I love that she will now be cherished by me, and my daughters in years to come ☺️💖☺️💖

Well these #gingerjeans are coming along nicely, yay to that! ☺️👖☺️👖
.
I just have the Button, rivets, back pockets and hem to go! I can’t tell you how much I’m enjoying making these!
.
I was a little worried when I had to shorten the leg by 7” as I thought I must have got something wrong, but the fit is perfect! (Although I have made them ankle grazer length on purpose) ☺️
.
I’m so pleased that I signed up for the @closetcase.patterns online class as I’ve learnt soooo much!
.
Have a wonderful week xx

I’ve just finished unpicking the basting stitches after making a few minor tweakes to the fit on my first ever #gingerjeans ✂️✂️✂️
.
I was super pleased that I only had to make a minor adjustment to the crotch area, everything else seemed to fit fine, you definitely need to do a trial run with basting stitches though!
.
So now it’s time for the real Sewing to commence! Exciting ☺️

I finally got some day light to photograph my @namedclothing #yonacoat version 2! 💖💖💖
.
I can’t tell you how much I love this coat, I really, really love it a lot! Oh and be sure to check out my tutorial on how to sew the Lined Patch pockets (link in bio)
.
I made it a little bit special too by lining the under-collar, and lining the whole coat with Liberty of London tana lawn (scroll to see more pics).
.
I got all my fabrics from @abakhanfabrics the wool was from the remnant basket, can you believe it! It’s super quality, and there are loads of Liberty fabrics at £10 per meter hence using this to line.
.
Which do you prefer? The blue or pink one? (The blue is a few posts ago if you haven’t seen it already)

Oh and be sure to check out my tutorial on how to sew the Lined Patch pockets (link in bio) . I made it a little bit special too by lining the under-collar, and lining the whole coat with Liberty of London tana lawn (scroll to see more pics). . I got all my fabrics from @abakhanfabrics the wool was from the remnant basket, can you believe it! It’s super quality, and there are loads of Liberty fabrics at £10 per meter hence using this to line. . Which do you prefer? The blue or pink one? (The blue is a few posts ago if you haven’t seen it already) . . . . . . . . . . . . . #modernmaker  #sewcialists  #sewingblogger  #iwearwhatimake  #makelight  #craftastherapy  #memade  #imakemyownclothes  #ignitetheskillwithin  #seamstress  #makeitsewcial  #sewersofinstagram  #createmakeshare  #thatauthenticfeeling  #slowliving_create  #onepurlrowglow  #embracingtheseasons  #stylingtheseasons  #ootdstyle  #upandautumn  #thisautumnlife  #slowautumndays  #autumnishere 
I’d say that about 90% of my wardrobe is now Handmade.
.
The only things that I hadn’t made were coats, which I’ve now mastered and very nearly finished my second version, and jeans.
.
I find jeans such a nightmare that I own only 1 pair, 1 pair of Levi’s that I’ve had for several years, but they are ready to go to jeans heaven as they are full of holes (and they are not the style that are supposed to have holes).
.
So, I’m going for it and tying to make my own, I’ve just purchased the @closetcase.patterns #gingerjeans online class, which is amazing, and my denim arrived yesterday from @dittofabrics , I’m going to watch the videos all the way through, then make a start!
.
Be prepared to see lots of jean action in my stories! 👖💙👖💙👖💙

How much of your wardrobe would you say is Handmade?
