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

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!

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

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!

Some weekend outfit inspiration for you! The #colettelaurel blouse paired with the #coletteselene skirt. Would you rock this look?

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

I was working on a practice #coletteselene as it's a pencil skirt shape and a first time using this pattern. I pulled mostly used spool and bobbin, a 10-yr old stash troll fabric.
This is the moment I looked at the tails and realized they were seasonally appropriate!! Sometimes happy happens!

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

Working with this color sure makes me smile! And because it's corduroy, I have to keep petting it.
Difficult to photograph the rich color, so I fiddled to get close to real life - so yummy!

Absolutely in love with my new #coletteselene skirt in sparkle brocade from @bmfabrics last year. Wore it to @kathbum gig in Lincoln this evening. Can you spot the pocket? #patternmatch #sewing #dresstoration #dressmaker #sewing #memadeeveryday #handmadenightout #sewcialists #sewingkeepsmesane

I use Washi tape to put together my PDF patterns... makes the task of taping together 5 billion (estimation?) pieces of paper a little prettier, and it re-sticks easily for when I screw up 😜#Sewing #pdfpattern #coletteselene #seleneskirt #colettepatterns #washitape #sundaysewing

Time to get cozy with my seam ripper! Hopefully third time's a charm with this zipper installation. Black on black is always a fun test of ones patience (and eye sight!)

Eep, opened this lovely little lot this evening, #coletteselene patterns for our new beginners starting tomorrow and the brand new #colettepenny shirt dress for our little shop!

Help! I don't know what to make next... I'm much better at buying patterns and fabric than I am finding time to sew. Should I make the #blackwoodcardigan in blue rayon jersey, the #seamworkakita in #riflepapercofabric rayon, or #coletteselene in houndstooth wool? Decisions, decisions... #sewing #handmadewardrobe #fallwardrobe #cottonandsteelcloset #seamworkmag #isew #indecision #fabric #fabricstash #fabrichoarder #sewingpatterns #sewingplans

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

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.

This the first time I have more fun taking photos of the insides than out 😁 Here's my #seleneskirt @colettepatterns inside-out with matching lining and Hong Kong seams. Maybe I should wear it out like this 🀣

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

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

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!

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

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.

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

πŸ€— welt pockets are done 😍😘 and a peak at the inside #coletteselene #weltpockets #selvedgedenim #handmadewardrobe

Topstitch thread color options for my Selene skirt. Which would you pick? #topstitching #icantdecide #selvedgedenim #coletteselene

Finished my first @colettepatterns Selene skirt. #colettepatterns #coletteselene

Momentous moment.

Fiddling with my muslin to get the right fit today. Here are the first three versions I'd make: brown wool with stripes; dark charcoal wool with a faux leather center and welt pockets, and red wool (with some really, really cute lining). Not pictured: the forest green version, a brocade version, and another spunkier version with some heavier weight vintage floral I've been hoarding. So many Selenes, I'm drowning in ideas!

Look at this gorgeous wool (+ lining) For the @colettepatterns Selene skirt I am embarking upon. Was so indecisive at the fabric store that I've already got 3 more versions dreamed up! #coletteselene #seleneskirt #sewing #blairstitchproject

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!

Each of my makes gets a page in my notebook with a sketch and a swatch. I also write down reminder notes for next time #sewist #coletteselene #seleneskirt #colettepatterns #planning #seworganized #handmadewardrobe #sewingtools
