Sewing tip: painters tape is great for marking guide lines on your machine. I’m finding it very helpful as I sew a bunch of 5cm tucks. 😃 . Wash I tape also works, but I find painters sticks for longer while still being removable and repositionable. 👍 . . . #sewing#sewing tip

It’s as pretty on the inside as it is on the outside! The zipper is in and the bodice lining has been handstitched in place.

I just did a Facebook Live at @piecefulquilting in East Northport, Long Island, New York, my local @babylocksewing dealer! Head over to my Facebook page or DM me for the direct link.

Just spent a lovely time in #walthamstowmarket with @kara22jay 😘. There "may" have been fabric purchases made 😅😉. We also bumped into @thecamdenstitch inside Saeed's shop too 😊👍. #sewing [22-March-2019]
#miymarch19 day 22: most worn. Since 2/3 of what I make is for my daughters, I think the most worn item must be the #soicocooncoat I made for @theliliesofthefield with wool from @cottonreelstudio. For the lining, I used grey checked silk that my sister had bought in Shanghai Friendship Store in the early 1980s! Final pic is a freezing Day in Paris in February with a view from the Sacre Coeur.
Taking my new Mayfair Dress by @ninaleelondon out for a stroll and enjoying the sunshine. This dress is perfect for my growing bump and there is enough room for the next five months. #mayfairdress#ninaleepatterns
Throwback to one of my first makes for my niece. This was some @joann_stores cotton woven made into this cute romper for Independence Day. Summer sewing is my favorite because there’s more opportunity to show it off! @mccallpatterncompany M7767
Oh my goodness guys!!!! The warm weather 🌞 is finally here!!! ❤️ We are totally looking forward to spending Spring Break in NYC, but I'm actually kind of scared to bring my babies.

See how irregular and messy the stitching row with the white thread is❓How come❓ . . Thing is, machine-sew straight stitches on this stretchy mesh leads definitely to messy stitches, because that straight stitch isn't suitable for this kind of elastized fabric. Would someone forces this, the stitch would pop and snap somehow someday 😳😖. . . Question is, why is the straight stitches done with regular sewing machine not suitable 🤔🤔❓Well, straight stitches aren't supposed to be sewn on nylon, nor knit fabric, nor very stretchy fabric like this mesh❗That stitch won't "grow old with" as the fabric is ...
*Proud of* - Day 22 #marchmeetthemaker Like most people shouting about things I am proud of doesn't come easily to me. I tend to think if I can do something everyone can do it and consequently it means I underplay my achievements. I thought long and hard about today's prompt and found that actually there are lots of things that I'm proud of, but the one I want to share is building my website. Computers were just making an appearance in physics lessons when I was at school so I didn't have any knowledge to fall back on making the ...

In keeping with this week's outwear them from #gbsb here is my Cascade Duffle Coat from Grainline Studio. I think it took 5.5 hours just to pattern-match & cut all the pieces out! One of my most challenging makes. . . @sewisfaction #sewistsofinstagram @grainlinestudio

"My goal is to invest in making pieces for longevity." So often I hear other sewers talking about "quick and dirty" sews and until recently, that's all I had really done for myself. Looking for patterns that go together quickly so you can pump them out in no time. But the other day I was listening to an episode of @lovetosew.podcast and their guest said something that struck me. She said "my handmades are very valuable for me" and it made me stop and really think about my sewing. The process of making jeans - jeans that I really, really ...

I’m so excited to share this one with you all! This is my first ever #memade dress! The past year has been such an incredible experience- I went from never sewing any garments before to this #megandress from the incredible @tillybuttons book! This book in general was such a game changer- it cut the rate of my “confused look” face when sewing by 80 percent for sure! And my favorite is that at the end of this one, she says “Give everything a final press and fix yourself a well-deserved martini!” 😂 so perfect! Also, the dress has darts- ...

Two beautiful stacks of flannel baby wipes made by my mama @_pam_wright and me! We spent the afternoon in Mom’s sewing room cutting the squares then sitting across from each other, one on the serger and one on the sewing machine. A day well spent! 💕 #diy#sewing
I shared this dress on the mannequin a few weeks ago. Today, I wore it around the @fairchildgarden while I checked out their beautiful orchid gardens.

My current bout of enthusiasm for sewing has been a welcome change of pace along with the start of a new season, but I promise I’m still a knitter & crocheter! 🧶😆 . . Pictured is my current WIP, a skirt based on Simplicity’s 1803 pattern (y’know, the green dress I’ve been posting about? 👗). My modifications are no bodice, and I’m using a delightful, contrasting yellow gingham for a set in waistband & fun pockets. This skirt will also be home to a matching vintage zipper I found at @thewasteshed last weekend (and posted about in my Sewing highlight ...
