Windy first day outing for my #b5616 #denimjacket worn with my #simplicity8134 #wrappants in linen - these pants have been getting a weekly outing since being made. Neither of these items have been blogged yet: got a back log but got house guests at the moment and too busy sewing! #memade #memademay #memadeoutfit #mmmay18 #imadethis #imakemyownclothes #isew #sewist #sewcialists #sewing #handmadewardrobe #diyfashion #fortyplusstyle #sewingblogger #sewmanju #maker #summersewing #ootd #officeoutfit

Current WIP: tropical viscose pyjamas. Bottoms made using TNT #simplicity2823 I think this is like the 6th time of making? Top to follow. #isew #imakemyownclothes #sewcialists #sewist #diyfashion #handmadewardrobe #sewing #sewingblogger #sewmanju #simplicitypatterns #simplicitybyme

#b5616 #denimjacket done. This is post bleaching (20 mins in 1:1 bleach solution). I have to do the buttons. Overall I am happy but this was probably one of the more challenging items I have made simply because of the fabric, the flat felling and the topstitching. Still my @janomeuk machine coped well enough. #imadethis #butterick #isew #imakemyownclothes #diyfashion #fortyplusstyle #sewingblogger #sewing #memade #sewmanju #sewcialists #sewist #handmadewardrobe #custommade

The morning after the night before: thanks for all your likes and comments on my last post. We had a fun night. Today off to a royal wedding viewing at a friends followed by afternoon tea. Wearing #memade #kwiksew #k4111 green crepe dress with a RTW cardigan. Have a fun day everyone! #imadethis #imakemyownclothes #memademay2018 #mmmay18 #maker #isew #handmadewardrobe #sewing #sewcialists #sewistsofinstagram #sewmanju #diyfashion #fortyplusstyle #curvysewing #parrotgreen #summersewing

Tonight me and the hubby are off to a #royalwedding themed ball organised by my daughters schools PTA. I am wearing my #offtheshoulderdress made using @mimigstyle for @simplicity_creative_group #simplicity8045 for the top and @mccallpatterncompany #m6713 for the skirt. Entering this in to the #royalweddingsewalong #bardotdress #isew #sewing #imakemyownclothes #imadethis #balloutfit #maker #sewist #sewcialists #sewmanju #sewingblogger #fortyplusstyle #diystyle #burgundy thanks to @fabworksmillshop for the fabric. Would Meghan approve? 😂 will have to try and post a better photo later! Right now got some bubbles to consume! 🥂

#b5616 #denimjacket bodice is sewn together; need to flat fell the shoulder and side seams. It fits ok (I think!) Next are the sleeves. #butterickpatterns #isew #imakemyownclothes #handmadewardrobe #sewmanju #sewingblogger #maker #diyfashion #sewcialists #sewist

Not gonna lie: making this denim jacket is harder than I thought it would be! Mainly cos my machine doesn’t seem to like sewing through the layers of denim to flat fell seam. Anyway, plodding on...she who dares wins! #b5616 #sewing #sewcialists #sewist #maker #sewingblogger #sewmanju #handmadewardrobe #denimjacket #topstitching #pocket #imakemyownclothes

Finally started sewing my denim jacket made using #b5616 flat felling most of the seams so it’s going to take a while but hopefully worth it. Happy Sunday all! #sewing #sundaysewing #isew #maker #diyfashion #sewmanju #sewcialists #sewist #memdade #butterickpatterns

Second wear of the week for my linen #simplicity8134 wrap front pants worn with my black #leatherbikerjacket made using #b6169 and peeking out my linen top with eyelets and lacing made using #simplicity8295 went for a lunch time date with the hubby and it was good! #memademay #memademay2018 #memadeoutfit #diyfashion #maker #fortyplusstyle #imadethis #isew #sewing #handmadewardrobe #sewmanju #sewcialists #sewistsofinstagram #memadeeveryday #mmmay18

Still one leg to hem but yes! Love these! #simplicity8134 #wrapfrontpants made in a tobacco? Rust? Coloured linen viscose fabric from @fabric_and_threads I just need to figure out how to style them. #sewing #imadethis #imakemyclothes #imakemyownclothes #diyfashion #fortyplusstyle #sewingblogger #sewmanju #maker #handmadewardrobe #sewistsofinstagram #sewist #memade #summersewing #simplicitybyme
