Kate is staying 😎 in her first (of many) Cashmerette #springfieldtop and her well-worn #coletteselene!

Proud of my modified #colettesorbetto & denim #coletteselene. I totally geeked out on the skirt: reinforced the seams, made my own bias tape & did a Hong Kong finish (photographed at the end of the day so please excuse the wrinkles).
After completing this skirt, I realized I had a sewing problem- really not a bad problem to have πŸ˜‰#handmadewardrobe #slowfashion #morefabricplease

Our spring pattern bundle is in the shop! 4 patterns for the price of 3. It includes the #coletteaster #colettemoneta #coletteselene and #colettelaurel

I never blogged about the @colettepatterns #seleneskirt that I made months and months ago, but that doesn't mean that I don't feel all 😻😻😻 about it. The denim faded badly πŸ˜’, but I love the pattern and I love my first welt pockets! I'd like to splurge on some nice black wool and make a timeless skirt that I will have forever. #madebymisscrayolacreepy #colettepatterns #coletteselene

Loving my #coletteselene pineapple skirt out here in Cali! Thanks @girlcharlee for this awesome fabric! Such fun to be out here by the beach for 4th of July!

First time doing welt pockets turned out pretty good! πŸ’ͺ #coletteselene #colettepatterns #sewing #weltpocket

First fully-lined skirt is a semi-success. I need to go down a size next time, but this #coletteselene seems worth tweaking. Plus, #octopus lining!

Free bonus pattern piece for the #seamworkaddison blouse! Add a pussy bow for a vintage look.

Is it creepy that on a slow day at work, I started flipping up my #memade skirt to look at the cheerful bias tape finish to be reminded of the fun sewing time over weekends...? πŸ˜ΆπŸ˜… #memadeeveryday #seleneskirt #coletteselene #sewcialists

Oooh yeah, when things match up 😎 Continuing my obsession with my new Selene skirt. The fabric is a beautiful charcoal coloured wool with speckles of colours - so in love with this fabric 😍

Last but not least for #summerofbasics is the skirt. Possibilities include the @colettepatterns Beignet or Selene skirt, or the @blueprintsforsewing A-frame skirt. I really need a basic skirt, probably in black, for all those days when leggings aren't pants. I've been plotting this for years, but because it's not new and shiny it never makes it to the top of the queue.

Hand-sewing the waistband of my #seleneskirt in place on this beautiful Sunday morning πŸ˜„ I love getting pretty prints like this one but not wearing them out, so I'm glad that I can use it for lining 😊

DAY 21 of #memademay: just casually hanging out with some celery πŸ’πŸ» Wearing a cardigan hacked from a @sewaholic Renfrew, a @colettepatterns Selene skirt, a @matt_and_nat purse, and an @animalhopeandwellness t-shirt. I did absolutely nothing today (other than knitting and watching the ID channel nonstop and it was awesome) and then threw on this mismatched outfit to meet @feralxray for dinner. A good Sunday!

One of my favorite me mades is this @girlcharlee pineapple 🍍 #coletteselene. Had to sneak it into my outfit lineup before the rain returns β˜€οΈ

Question for the sewists, what do you do with your handmade garments that no longer fit? I made this #coletteselene about 1.5 years ago when we were testing the pattern. Due to some life events last year I lost quite a bit of weight in a short amount of time and suddenly so many of my me mades no longer fit. I haven't worn this skirt in so long - I tried to take it in to fit my waist, but now the waist is a tad too small but still feels too boxy and long on my body. Do y'all ever try to save your garments? Sewing clothes for yourself is labor intensive and it's so disappointing to work hard on a garment to have it no longer fit you after a short time. Then again I can't imagine ever getting rid of my labors of love ❀️ PS for those of you concerned this is not where I live, it's actually my neighbor's scary shack

Another @colettepatterns #coletteselene skirt, this time in a knit! This gorgeous fabric was a thrift shop find from my mum. I skipped the vent and changed the zip to an invisible instead of lapped, I'm really happy with how it turned out!

Newly finished Selene skirt from @colettepatterns! This is a great textured cotton blend I grabbed at @moderndomestic a few weeks ago, it was super easy to sew with and lays very nicely. I decided not the line the skirt because this is more of a summer print and I didn't want it to be too heavy - plus this fabric is surprisingly soft after washing! I made version 3 with the slanted pockets in size 4. Given the cut of the skirt, it would probably fit better if I graded the waistband down to a size 2, but since that was a little dramatic for the first time making the pattern I opted not to. I think it will wear more comfortably without the adjustment but would look better with it πŸ˜‚ oh fashion! My zipper came out wonky (as usual, I have no patience for the damn things) but it's not too bad. I opted for a hook and eye closure because it's what I had on hand. Overall really like it and would make it again! Detailed shots and a styled pic to follow when it's warm again πŸ™„! #coletteselene #colettepatterns #succulents #sewing #memade #pockets #slowclothing #selene

Two finishes today! One very slow #coletteselene skirt that has been weeks in the making and a quick #seamworkakita (thank you @bloglessanna for rewriting the side seam/arm finish instructions, I could not work out the binding!). Looking forward to wearing these to work on Tuesday 😊😊😊

A busy Thursday evening this week at The Craft Space! Dressmaking, crochet and Powertex all led to a fab atmosphere, thank you ladies! #coletteselene #powertexuk #beginnerscrochet #craftrevolution #learnacraft

So I just finished my 4th and 5th #coletteselene skirts and while I love the pattern and it's a perfect addition to my work wardrobe, I still just can't get over the instruction booklet errors AND that it hasn't been reissued.

Finished another @colettepatterns Selene skirt. Made this one a little shorter with stretch velvet. #coletteselene #memade #colettepatterns
