When you have lots of leftover fabric from a fabulous make, what do you do? 🧵 You make more pieces to add to the fabulousness, of course. So, I’ve made a pair of cropped pants to wear with the blazer I made recently. I can’t wait to show you how awesome they look together. 🧵 Blog Post Coming Tomorrow!!! 🧵 D I Y — S T Y L E 🧵 #newlookpatterns#burdapatterns
💥What was your fav part of Endgame? It’s cool to do spoilers now, right?? 💥 One of mine was Stark’s Build-a-Bear comment in the first 15 mins 🤣I literally LOL’ed. And now I think I wanna make a genderbend Ant Man— I looooove Paul Rudd so much 😍 . . Cosplay made by me 💁🏼♀️ using the @simplicity_creative_group @ridd1e pattern; fabrics are all 4-way stretches by @yayahan ; 📸 by @rickcurrier32 ; breastplate EVA foam from @thefoamory . . #captainmarvel#captainmarvelcosplay
Sometimes scrap fabrics make stuff like this! I love this ensemble; I tried it on and I just love it....I think they’re both Simplicity patterns; if anyone wants the exact numbers just let me know and I’ll track em down....Summa time is here y’all! #sew#krssews
If I have a perfect fabric, it’s rayon linen. What’s yours? I detailed this dress on my blog today and check my stories for four more versions of Simplicity 2591 that I’ve made in the past 5-7 years (I look soooo different 😬😂)
Warsaw.fashion// @chylak.bags and their brand new collection! Poland’s most famous bag designer has, again, managed to twist the classical design! From vintage-inspired pieces to the underarms, buckets and belt bags - perfect for a staple accessory👌🏼 ➖➖➖➖ 📷 chylak.com ➖➖➖➖ #polishdesigners#polishbrands
This dress was in the “chopping block bag” for about a year, until I decided at the very last minute to wear it to perform last night 😜 I LOVE the pattern, but go hot and cold with the print. That said: #dontkondoanything 😬 #simplicitypatterns 5736, with an adjusted neckline 👗
I already praised this pattern in my insta stories. Here I wanted to share my life hack aka “how to make things easier for me”. The instructions say to use elastic like in swimwear, where you serge it, fold under and zig zag. I thought it’d be too bulky and if I were to wear it with pants it’d leave ugly pantie line. So I ended up using a fold over elastic. This is my way of adding it, you may have yours 💁♀️ This presser foot attachment is actually came with bias tape making kit but it works like ...
Sunny walk to school with the girls, cat-cuddles 🐾 & a sleeve with ruffles. It’s all about the #sleeves in this top. It’s @simplicity_creative_group #s8642 in Japanese cotton from John Lewis. Makes me feel like standing hands on waist with a rose between my teeth 🌹Probably won’t. I made a Bettine dress in this fabric if you can be bothered to scroll down my grid!👇Have a top Tuesday! . . . . . . .
Finally got some pics of my new bomber! I’m really happy with this one, in fact my mum told me that it’s her favourite make of mine at the weekend! ☺️ . So this is a real stash buster, it’s made from silky black viscose that I already had in my stash and some beautiful fabric from #fabricgodmother which I got as a remnant! I only had 60cm of the floral fabric but knew I wanted to make a bomber from it. That meant I had to have the sleeves in a block colour, which I actually prefer! Makes ...
I made this Minnie Mouse vintage roper specially to a beautiful princess named Bella, she wore it at her birthday party ! The applique was made out of felt and I spent hours to make the lace because I wanted the perfect size, the first attempt was too small, the second too big and finally the third attempt was successful! Thank you @beat.rizz for give me the pleasure to make it for your little princess!!! @simplicity_creative_group #isewmyownclothes#simplicitypatterns
#simplicitypatterns#joannfabrics Simplicity Skirt Pattern 8175 I made this skirt to go with the argyle print top fabric from (www.etsy.com) but it looks better with this classic collar shirt. I wanted something in this color for so long when I found this fabric I had to have it. I have more of this fabric that I will make a blazer or jacket for this skirt.
#simplicitypatterns 8723. So, when your niece and nephew ask you to make Harry Potter robes, you have to shift into gear. 8 yards of black fabric, and 3 yards of maroon and electric blue satin, followed by these two patches which took forever to come in. Now I have no excuse to delay any longer! #menwhosew
Finally made my Hawaiian shirt dreams a reality. 🌴🌞🍹 I've had a hard time finding a pattern that didn't need a ton of mods to fit well. Found a winner in New Look #s6394 Made a straight 12. It's the first time I've made a Big 4 pattern that wasn't a Halloween costume. . #memadeeveryday
Progress for today: halfway done finishing seams on the skirt of the gown. Finally had to switch out bobbins before the last two seams. I should be able to get the other half done tomorrow evening. #sewing#seamstress
The best sorts of friends are enablers! My Kansas friend Elly not only thought of me when she saw these on her local marketplace, she offered to get them and mail them to me! I mean, that's a lot going out of your way to do something for a friend that you've only met one time in real life! The only reason we met is because I creepily started a conversation with her when I saw her at The Vintage Tulsa Show looking at vintage patterns. 🤣 She's the best sort of friend! Thank you Elly! Now I only ...
I met one of my fav longtime authors and while doing so, I wore the shirt I made. I almost didn't because I thought "maybe it doesn't fit right" or "maybe the peplum is too much". But how could I not wear something I created while hearing an excellent author talk about the stories she's created? I'm so glad I rocked that peplum shirt. Just like sewing, these books have always left me feeling refreshed and fulfilled. @sdessen, thank you for inspiring me to create through your captivating stories, even if that's through making clothes. #simplicitypatterns#memadewardrobe ...
Hopefully your Monday was nice, dear lovelies? I am currently having troubles with my legs 😣 the joints hurt and I suffer from water retention. Sigh let's go back to when I felt fabulous wearing this little red dress ✨ #annabodewigvintage#seamstress
WIP- Slow progress today, mostly because I’ve been trying recently to make the insides of my garments as pretty as the outside. There’s nothing more satisfying than having no raw seams visible at the end of a project so I’m adding a contrasting bias tape to the inside of my jumpsuit. . The more I build my own wardrobe, the more respect I’m developing for the process. This week’s episode of @lovetosew.podcast with @brittanyjjones was also a great reminder to sometimes step back and *enjoy* the process- remember why you love sewing...instead of just trying to get pieces finished at ...
Project started and finished in two days! That’s fast for me. It went pretty fast because I serged almost all of it and hemmed it on the sewing machine. It is a kimono that goes nicely over a shirt and jeans or over a swimsuit. Love it!
I finally sewed up something in a solid color! I have a ton of this mystery fabric so I decided to use it to make another quick dress....I did a couple mods on this dress since I didn’t use a knit like I usually do....I really like it; Im going to wear it to a meeting I have Wednesday morning....maybe this dress will give good vibes for my meet up! I mean it’s Me Made after all.... #krssews#dressmaker

Many migraines later, I finally found enough time to finish my 60s pink lemonade dress. I used #simplicity8591 which goes together nicely, though I dislike the separate facings for the neckline and armscyes on the sleeveless look - they overlap at the shoulder, which is awkward. I recommend making your own full facing instead. #retro
The foliage on this fabric screams fall but it’s not stopping me from making a jumpsuit for the summer ☀️ This @teliofashion rayon challis fabric from @fabricdotcom is super lightweight and airy making it the perfect choice for a summer piece, can’t wait to see it all done!
