I had so many arguments with this zip today! I tried three times before realising the reason it was stretching out was because I had failed to stabilise it 🙈 two strips of interfacing later and it went in like a dream. Oh well, at least I got there in the end, and my dress is nearly done!

Dress down Friday = me made #friyay! If I can free my fabric from the post office and get it washed in time, I’m hoping to make another @simplicitynewlook New Look 6428 this weekend so I’m checking out the fit by wearing this today. I think it just needs the bust darts moving down a bit and it’s good! Happy weekend everyone, what are your sewing plans?

We are in Amsterdam for the weekend, where it stopped raining for long enough to snap my @sewoveritlondon Molly dress. This isn’t my usual style, and I think it might be more actual pyjamas than secret pyjamas, but it’s a nice lazy Sunday wear and was super quick to put together.

I had a successful making things weekend! Got my dress finished and made two lemon drizzle cakes as it’s been a long time since I baked. My transformation into a 50’s housewife is complete 😂

Typically my final #sewphotohop post is a day late, but better late than never! So, day 30 - What’s Next. I haven’t had a huge amount of time for sewing recently because of my new job, so today I am hoping to make the Sew Over It Mollie dress in this cute cat print jersey I picked up from Walthamstow market earlier in the year.
Thank you @houseofpinheiro for organising such a great photo challenge! I really enjoyed it, even if I couldn’t play every day I have loved seeing everyone else’s posts and getting loads of new inspiration!! Now I can’t wait for next year!

#sewphotohop Day 25 - Would Closet Swap With. I met the amazingly lovely and supremely talented Wilma, aka @vladivos , in a sewing class last year and I have been coveting her handmade wardrobe ever since. Our style is pretty similar, in fact we joke that one day we'll own identical wardrobes, but Wilma is not only quicker at finishing projects than I am but is also a much more careful sewist than me so her clothes are much better than mine!! She also has an incredible talent for matching fabric to the perfect pattern. If you don't already follow her, go and do it now!
(p.s- Wilma, I hope you don't mind me reposting your photo!)

#sewphotohop Day 22 - Trims & Haberdashery. I have to confess, although I adore haberdashery, I am not much of a user of it. Anyway, when I was in LA over the summer, I went to the fabric district, which is a bit like Goldhawk Road on steroids, and was so overwhelmed by the amazing trims, ribbons and other haberdashery that I didn't know where to start so I came home with only fabric!

#sewphotohop Day 21 - Stepping Up. I said last year that I wanted to make a bra, and it's one of my #2017makenine , however my first attempt got put aside because I stupidly used the slipperiest fabric in the world and then got distracted by making pretty dresses. Anyway, thanks to the lovely ladies at @newcrafthouse I shall be stepping up in November and finally making my bra at one of their classes!! @houseofpinheiro @abakhanfabrics

#sewphotohop Day 17 - One Piece or Separates?  I make the occasional separate pieces, but my true love is and will always be dresses. ❤️👗

#sewphotohop Day 17 - Holiday Wardrobe. Yep, you've see all these before! I haven't really made any 'holiday specific' clothes, such as beachwear, but I still love wearing my handmade dresses on holiday!

#sewphotohop Day 16 - Procrastination. Okay, so I made this dress last year without making a toile (I know!!!) and I was sorely disappointed, it was too big, the waist sat too low and I left really frumpy in it so it never got hemmed while I tried to figure out what to do with it. Fast forward to last week when I put it on for my 'oops I made a mistake photo' and it turns out that, ironically having lost some weight, it looks better than I remember, although the waist is still a bit low and the neck a bit high! Anyway, long story short is that hemming this dress has been a massive procrastination, but I think I might actually do it now! The pattern is @mccallpatterncompany Butterick B6318 with fabric from @brooklyngeneralstore  @houseofpinheiro

Oops, missed a few days because of a busy week, but I am back in the game so here we go with #sewphotohop Day 15 - Close Up. 
This is a close up of the embroidery on my 60's copycat dress (which is a simplicity 1609 jiffy dress btw). I wish I could say I did this myself, but my lovely mum did it for me. Embroidery is definitely a skill I need to pick up.  @houseofpinheiro @upcraftclub

#sewphotohop Day 12 - Proudest Of. My most recent make that I am proudest of is my multi-way button down dress which is a hack of the strapless dress from #gertiesultimatedressbook . I figured out how to do the button hack by looking at the version @gertie18 made, and then had to work out where to place the buttonholes on the inside to make the removable straps. I also ended up with a bodice pattern that fits me perfectly, which I can adapt to have straps or not as I choose!  @houseofpinheiro

#sewphotohop Day 11 - Why I Sew. Like so many others, the main reason I started sewing properly is that rtw rarely fits me well. The story of my life is pretty dresses that wouldn't do up over my bust, and I love that by making my own clothes, sizing isn't an issue. I also love that sewing clears my head and gives me a creative outlet from my non creative day job, it's a lovely escape, even when I'm reaching for the seam ripper!! @houseofpinheiro @mccallpatterncompany

#sewphotohop Day 10 - Oops I made a mistake. Regrets, I've had a few!! But let's talk about that time my overlocker ate my skirt. Thankfully it's only the lining, but it was a sobering lesson to go slowly and carefully when blades are involved!!

#sewphotohop Day 9 - Past Era. I am a 50's girl at heart, but I have always loved this 60's dress, handmade my my mum back in the day.
