I had a little photo shoot for these freshly finished socks, and then left the pictures on my camera card and totally forgot about them! I only remembered because I'm wearing them today 😁

A made-up toe-up sock pattern in @knit_picks Felici ('groovy' colorway) - plus my fabulous corduroy @closetcase.patterns #gingerjeans flares which I am also wearing again today 😁

I fell in love with this remnant from @drapersfabrics (while I was there with @ellejoans who just posted what she made with her fabric as well!) - originally it was going to be a dyed tank, but I'm glad I decided against that.

Pattern is drafted from my vintage drafting book, and I LOVE this shirt and the style! I definitely have plans for more. Full details of the draft are up on my blog now. πŸ™ƒ

I've researched, sketched, practiced, tested three types of tulle, got my hands on fabrics, gotten sequin samples from France, made a makeshift hoop holder, drawn plans for my slate frame, and FINALLY perfected my satin stitch. There's a long way to go but I'm gonna get there. Handmade wedding dress, here I come! .

(Ps- the magical invisible tulle is from @hawesandfreer  and it is perfection.)

I spent last night hand rolling the hem on my new top, which was probably overkill for a simple layering tank but sometimes you have one of those days when you just need to slow right on down and focus on one stitch at a time.

The weather held out for enough time for a photo shoot in the park this weekend! I met some dogs, got weird looks from some people, and most importantly got my not-so-inner disco queen on in my new favorite pants! Basically my biggest problem is that I never want to take them off...

Pattern is @closetcase.patterns #gingerjeans with the flares extension (modified a bit, there's info on the blog) with Corduroy "Theo" from @drapersfabrics .

Ah, the completely arbitrary yet highly important impact of that extra 1/4" on pocket placement. This poor flat butt needs all the help it can get! (ps, who can tell that I'm not over how adorable my avocado pincushion is yet πŸ˜‚) My @closetcase.patterns #gingerjeans are actually finished now but the weather is making photos difficult. But! This up-close shot should give you half an idea of how amazing this merlot corduroy from @drapersfabrics is. Delectable, actually. Scrumptious, even. .

October's issue of The Monthly Draft is a panty party! I've written out directions to draft a bikini style pattern, and created four 'hacks' to show how easy it is to make changes to a draft! (I'm a day late- those diagrams took FOREVER)

As a bonus, because it's #slowfashionoctober - the only thing I bought for this project was 6 meters of picot and fold over elastic. All the fabrics and laces are scraps from other projects ❀️️

Finally, the next instalment of wedding dress progress is live on YouTube! I'm talking about what I've learned from trying on dresses, and how my plans have changed so far... and how I'm finally ready for sketching! (Ps can this be my #sewphotohop 'makes me happy'? 'Cause I'm so behind...)

It's been years since I learned a completely new skill. I learn new techniques all the time, but being a complete beginner at something? It's been a while. I'm having So. Much. Fun! I can feel my fingers learning as I practice, and I'm totally getting faster after only four days. Bead encrusted wedding dress, here I come! πŸ’•πŸ‘°πŸΌπŸ’•
.

I'm counting this as today's #sewphotohop although there's nothing like a shiny pile of beads and sequins to make ya fall off a bandwagon... πŸ™ƒ

This #sewphotohop is both vacation sewing AND separates vs. one piece. I drafted this suit for a trip to Hawaii, and it was the first one piece swimsuit I've ever fit into in my life! Tall girl problems... It's coming up on summer here in NZ, I may be due for another swimsuit soon!

Ah, #procrastination how we know you. Yesterday's #sewphotohop prompt was procrastination, and not only did I put sewing this cardi off for almost four months, I also managed to delay its post a day as well! Typical. Some things are just newer and shinier in the sewing world than a black cardigan. But! It's finished now and my blog post is done too so you can read all about it if you like!

I don't have an 'up close' for today's #sewphotohop but what I do have qualifies in the true nature of Sew Photo Hop, I think. I met a real live Instagram friend today! Lynda of @ellejoans was up in Auckland (and as it turns out we were both nervous about meeting each other!) I had SO MUCH FUN!! We even did the Instagram Thing and documented our trip to @drapersfabrics like the sewcialists we are 😁
.

I love the online sewing community!!

Today's #sewphotohop is activewear/loungewear. Not a lot of loungewear in my life, but this is my merino hiking shirt, which I most recently wore when Jon and I hiked up to the top of the tallest waterfall on the north island (...in May...)! That little patch of water behind me is the top of the waterfall, but it's much more impressive if you swipe, I promise. I do have more activewear on my 'things to make' list, but I gotta say I've been doing more lounging lately... πŸ™ƒ

Today's #sewphotohop prompt is 'why I sew'. I started sewing because mom sewed and it was magical to watch materials become finished objects. I kept sewing because I haven't fit a standard clothing size since I was 12. Now I sew because I can make clothes better than retail, in my style, and because I never seem to stop learning! Also retail fashion makes me twitchy...

I'm a day late today and I'm not really sure where the weekend went (that's a lie. It went on a [v. successful] wedding dress research mission) but here's my #sewphotohop Past Era: my mom used to make all of our Halloween costumes, and we were the COOLEST kids. Here, my sisters are Dorothy and the lion, and I am Glinda the Good Witch- all made by mom. She helped me learn to sew and perhaps most incredibly, let me raid her sewing room and use the nice scissors for all the very questionable projects of my middle- and high school years...

Day 7 of #sewphotohop is 'favorite skill'. This one was really hard, because 'making things' is all I could come up with! I ended up asking my Mom what she thought, and she said "tiny details." .
She's right, of course. I love details. The smaller it is, the longer it takes, the more fiddly it is, the better. Photos featuring: hand beaded silk flapper dress, hand stitching, self drafted hem detail, and handmade bra clasp in progress. .

I wish I had a 'before' picture for #sewphotohop ...Before I moved to New Zealand, I had converted my bedroom to a sewing and screen printing studio, and I was sleeping on an air mattress behind the couch in the family room. (Sleep is overrated. Sewing is not.) When we moved in to our tiny house, my machines sat on top of a suitcase in this little corner of the kitchen and I used one leg to 'stabilise' my makeshift table whenever I used the serger. The kitchen corner is still mine, but I've improved a bit in the past year and a half. I actually christened the space 'finished' just last week with a blog post and more photos, so if you want to know how I deal with the Small House Much Stuff life, the link's in my bio πŸ™ƒ .
.
Also: me-made bunny slippers (and shirt) and my favorite @closetcase.patterns #gingerjeans flares πŸ’•
