MOST RECENT

A sunny but very cold day (well atleast for this time of year) called knits and I had time to take the camera out and show off my new knitted dress finally. It's made from an early 40s pattern, the shirt under is just a generic modern polo that is great for layering and the sweater is an old knit I made inspired by the 40s. Swipe to see a closeup of my hair. I'm really loving 40s outrageous pomps lately. .

As it turns out I'm awful at keeping new designs a surprise because I just get TOO DAMN EXCITABLE. So to curb my temptation of spoiling the whole process and my endless encounters with plagiarism (don't get me started), I've resorted to sneak peeks.

I've been living in my samples of this upcoming garment for weeks and thoroughly enjoying styling my outfits in as many combinations as I can. IT'S SO VERSATILE I can't wait to share a blog post on the endless looks I have paired together.

I'll be honest guys I've already posted two full shots of the garment on the feed (sorry they've been deleted now!) so you may know what's coming in advance, but even I'm excited to see the variety of colour and fabric choices my testers are running. You'd think I'd get bored of consuming my days with the same garment as I refine the pattern for you, but you're wrong - it never ceases to amaze me what fresh eyes can do to a design and I'm always in awe of the personality injections you all give to the patterns! I cannot wait to see what you all do with the next one!

I FINISHED my sweater!!!! I still need to block it but I cannot tell you how rewarding it is to start a project from scratch, with yarn hand dyed by a local boss mom friend, @_hellostella_ I didn’t get it done in time for my first goal of thanksgiving, or my second goal of slow fashion October, but I did get it finished, and that’s all that counts! Pattern is the uniform cardigan by madder. .

Til neste gang vill jeg ha en dypere utringningen på kjolen, men ellers kjempe fornøyd ❤ .

One of the wonderful things about wool is that there are so many varieties! While Merino is well-known, there are endless varieties of wool, and today we’re taking some time to reflect on our favorite fibers.
Bridget - While I stopped using acrylic early on in my knitting life, I didn’t really understand the difference between breeds for a long time, and usually just knit with Merino, since it was readily available. I just bought the right weight in the right color, with little regard for the composition of the yarn itself. It wasn’t until I started to spin yarn that I was really introduced to the wider variety of breeds. I came to love spinning Corriedale for its springiness! My favorite non-sheep fiber is alpaca. I love that it’s airy and light, while still being incredible warm. Perhaps I’m biased because I’d love to have an alpaca someday!
Libby - I learned to knit in my early 20’s, so there was lots of information on different types of wool at my disposal. Most of my early knitting was with Merino as it is one of the most common breeds for wool. While I still love Merino, especially now as a dyer, I believe variety is the spice of life - I love exploring with wooly wools like Icelandic lopi, Hebridean, Shetland, and Romney, but also with other soft alternatives to Merino like Dorset, Polwarth, and Blue-Faced Leicester. One of my favorite new wools is actually Yak! It provides a darker base for dyeing so colors come out deeper. And not to mention, it can have a similar micron count, or softness, to Cashmere, but is much more environmentally friendly to grow!

Sewing PJ pants to my brothers who are 37 and 43 years old :p We grew up watching Donald Duck on TV every Christmas Eve, so I just had to make these as presents!

Stretch lace little zip up. I'd been given a bag of mostly stretch lace remnants from a sample room. I kept the pattern simple, no side seams, bound front n neckline finished with an open end separating zipper. The hem was laid on a finished edge that was turned once n machined. Part of the sample also had a crinkle lace edge that I cut off to edge the sleeves (pic2). The difficulty was getting the right length zip with no time to order it. McCulloch n Wallis only stocked too short or too long. They recommended I buy too long and a couple of metal stoppers. "Check out on YouTube how to do it." I did, not as easy to do as they suggest. One site did say that once removing the teeth of the zip from above the new shortened length, an alternative to the metal stopper is to just oversew the end. I'll be giving my daughter a warning not to be too energetic with the zip.....just in case!! #stretchlace #sewingstretch #ballpointneedles #separatingzipper #sewingproject #patterncutting #makeyourownclothes #makersgonnamake #memade #fashion #slowfashion #learnsomethingnew #zerowaste #sustainablefashion #sustainableliving #bespoke #handmadewardrobe #london #keepitsimple
