In the Folds  Creating sewing patterns and tutorials to help you become a more confident dressmaker βœ‚οΈMade with a lot of love in Sydney, Australia

The thing I love most about making sewing patterns is seeing what amazing things all of you in the sewing community do with them!

Lately I have been thinking about ways I can show more diversity on my website, blog and social media channels. We are all different shapes and sizes and have different preferences, lifestyles, experiences and ideas, and I want to celebrate and showcase that... but to do that I need your help!

The idea is to create a 'Makers Gallery' where makers can see a wide range of women using the same sewing pattern, so that other makers can feel inspired, as well as be in a better position to make an informed decision about what pattern will suit their body shape, what fabric will work well and what alterations may need to be made to the pattern to achieve a great fit.
Would you like to be part of this project? All you need to do is head to my website and fill out a submission form (direct link in profile). The Makers Gallery will be constantly growing and evolving and I hope it will become an invaluable resource for makers in our community - sharing images of real women, wearing real garments and telling real stories about their lives and making experiences.
I really hope as many of you as possible can be a part of this! #inthefoldsmakersgallery

Did you see the beautiful green jumpsuit that @lempobee made using the free jumpsuit pattern I recently released? Absolutely love the added patch pockets and the way she's styled it πŸ’šπŸ’šπŸ’š So many of these jumpsuits have been popping up on my feed lately, which makes me very very happy πŸ‘

Today I'm making the sample for my next Peppermint Mag pattern with this beautiful blush linen from @wearethefabricstore Over the last few weeks I have made A LOT of toiles (I am working on batching my pattern production process at the moment), so it's really nice to be working with something other than calico and to actually have to worry about seam finishes for a change. After a very busy week it's nice to have a day to just focus on one thing. Making this beautiful dress!

Look at the awesome dress @frugal_fabrician made with the Jersey dress pattern (one of the free patterns I made in collaboration with @peppermintmagazine) What a great way to make a summer dress out of a winter pattern!

The struggle is real πŸ˜±πŸ™ˆ

I mentioned recently that I've been working with a pattern maker to help me up my game when it comes to fit. She has reminded me of many of the techniques and habits I was taught at university. One of them being, storing my patterns properly! I had gotten out of the habit over the last couple of years and had just been storing them all on paper in envelopes, and it was becoming an absolute mess. I was struggling to keep track of pieces and knowing which pattern was the most recent version. Going back to cardboard patterns has been a game changer - they are much easier to store, much stronger and make cutting samples a speedier process. I use big zip lock storage bags to hold any relevant bits and pieces (such as cut samples or notions etc.) and hang each style together for safe-keeping on these great long hooks which saves a tonne of space. #sewphotohop

'Labour of love' for #sewphotohop ❀️❀️❀️ All my projects, and especially each of my patterns, are a labour of love, but I thought I'd go back to this bag I made for my aunt last Christmas. I think it took me about 20 hours to stitch the front panel (hooray for binge watching Netflix while stitching) and another hour or so to assemble it. It was a labour of love, but I enjoyed every minute of it - knowing it was going to a new home and would be worn, loved and cherished (which it has been) long into the future. #sashiko #sashikostitching
