#MMMay18 18,19/31: Happy weekend! Day 19 I’m surprised I’m still in the Me Made May challenge 😂. Today I’m wearing #tessutifabrics #esthershorts with one of my favourite tees. Yesterday’s outfit was another dress made with patterns from Sew Many Dresses Sew Little Time. For this dress I used princess seams bodice, gathered skirt, with cap sleeves. #handmadewardrobe #librarianwardrobe #imademyclothes #sewingaddict #sewmanydressessewlittletime

MeMadeMay 2018 - Weekend 2.2: ‘Classic Sunday’ wearing my Kyoto top in white merino wool with Esther shorts in red linen ❤️ #esthershorts #kyotosweater #kyototee #memademay #memademay2018 #mmmay18

I made this entire outfit yesterday! I spent my day off sewing instead of cleaning my house, lol. The top is my 3rd #ogdencami in the most dreamy rayon challis and the shorts are a pair of #esthershorts by @tessutifabrics in an African Wax print from my stash. I love this shorts pattern I think the only thing different I would do is make them shorter 😊

#mmmay18 Day 5 - today we can't see anything 😅 but I am wearing my favorite Tessuti linen Ester shorts and handmade sandals 💕 T-shirt "bee the change" from @dcampbellatelier 🐝
#memademay2018 jour 5 - donc aujourd'hui on voit rien du tout (#photographierdunoir) Mais je porte mon short adoré en lin (coupe parfaite) et mes nouvelles sandales faites main 👡✂

Even when it’s overwhelming every little bit helps #whomademyclothes @fash_rev_ausnz #helgashirt #esthershorts @tessutifabrics

One down, two pieces to go before August 😬. Pleased with the fit of these shorts w/o any alterations (this almost never happens!). More project details on the blog. #nettlesandchickweed #esthershorts #summerofbasics 📷@reedforrestlehto

New outfit for the Easter long weekend! Reeta shirtdress cropped to a shirt in an awesome liberty tana with @tessutifabrics Esther shorts with added in seam pockets in my fav linen from @wearethefabricstore #esthershorts #reetashirt #reetashirtdress #libertyoflondon #sewcialists #imademyclothes

It's 30c in Melbourne today so I should get a few more weeks wear out of these #tessutifabrics #esthershorts The left is my wearable muslin with a remnant of linen I picked up from #rathdowneremnants and the right is the lovely #outbackwifefabric barkcloth. I had to do some adjustments to the pattern to get the right fit and cut them a bit longer so they sit mid thigh, but very happy with the finished work. I have a piece of Nani Iro canvas I think would be brilliant, but that may have to wait for next summer.

Olde worlde shorts for ms28 - the pattern is approx one size too big so i’ll have to grade down. Kitty fabric has been set aside for shorts for her for ages. I did a full body measure so i can make stuff for her and sent to Germany when done. Also on order is @tessutifabrics #Esthershorts and ##claudiadress We picked up lovely linen for both today at @wearethefabricstore #brisbanespoolettes #australiansewingguild

Wearing my best 'wimbledon" outfit at the #fedcup tennis today. A rapidly whipped up @tessutifabrics #esthershorts in some heavy ticking from spotties and my #isleofwhite @grainlinestudio #archer from the absolute archives. Rarely wear this shirt but the long sleeves and collar were perfect for the heat. Topped off by @countryroad visor. Bigger the better!

Continuing my summer of linen with the well-worn, well-loved #lisadress (modified to a top) and #esthershorts.

My #makenine2018 and some serious sewing goals. Seems I’ll be doing a lot of @tessutifabrics this year 😃 seriously, I find most of their patterns fabulous. So there’s tessuti’s #esthershorts, #oslocoat, #lenitop and hopefully also the #loisdress. Also daydreaming about the #berlinjacket 🤗 since I’m in desperate need of more basic tops, I’d love to copy the fabulous @mademywardrobe idea of her red top 😍Then there’s @grainlinestudio #farrowdress in the agenda - I love this version by @kylieandthemachine 😍 the #aldershirtdress is also planned. I’d love to hack my all time favorite #ogdencami into a dress as did @sew_everyday in the most perfect way! No sewing plan is complete without some refashioning - planning to cut up some old denim into a denim skirt with 80ies vibes as did @sew.petite 👍 and in terms of trying new stuff: why not try some swimwear- I love @swimstylepatterns!! That’s much of a plan huh... hope I’ve tagged all your makes correctly. Looking forward to this sewing year together 👊

Belated happy new year! It’s been a good but somehow bumpy start into 2018 over here. Loads of plans and projects in my head and too little time! But why not do a short recap of my #makenine2017. Swipe to see my makes. I’m actually pretty stoked about my turnout! So here we go: 1 - #tessuti #rubydress in white linen. It gets loads of wear. 2 - #ogdencami #truebias: one of my favorite patterns. I love it. Made 3 this year, a forth one already cut. 3 - #coatigansilvia #schnittchenpatterns: super proud, my first jacket. I gave it to my mother in law, as I didn’t really wear it. Too short for my liking. 4 - Blouson and bomber: one simple (#burda) one super advanced with a zillion pattern pieces (#ottobre). 5- another #tessuti #frankiedress in a rough knit, I used the wrong side and I absolutely love the dress. I’m late on the following: #esthershorts #tessuti: I had two pairs cut - in mid October 🙄. #aldershirtdress - I shyed away from it - it seemed too complex. It’s on this year’s list.... #emersoncroppants - not sure about the style any longer 🤔 and finally denim culottes: have to give this one more thought- since I really dislike denim without back pockets I’m hesitating. Probably it’ll be #rtw on this one.
So THANK YOU for reading, for liking and for commenting - I find this community incredibly supportive, inspiring and motivating ❤️ May 2018 be happy, healthy and peaceful ✌️ for you and your loved ones. Happy sewing and creating!

Finished another holiday project. The Esther shorts with added pocket (saw them on @sew.h_factor and love them 😍). These are fun to make, can't wait to wear them when the Perth summer weather returns later this week. 😆 #esthershorts @tessutifabrics #handmadewardrobe #memade

Sewing day today. Can you tell. #esthershorts pattern by #tessutifabrics with #outbackwife barkcloth.

Finished making the #esthershorts from #tessutipatterns today. The fabric is leftover soft furnishing cotton bought 5 years ago to make a window seat cushion. I added the gathered pockets to the shorts and didn't have enough fabric to cut the waistband as one length so made it in quarters matching the seams. They fit perfectly thanks to doing a test run in calico first. As usual, Doris sat on them as soon as they were placed on the floor to photograph. The seat cushion, window blind and cushions were made by me (and have probably been sat on by Doris). #handmadewardrobe #isew #sewcialists #sewing #recycledfashion #upcycle #slowfashion #sewingdog #cavoodles #cavoodlesofinstagram #cavoodlesofsydney
