It was totally worth it to stay up late last night and finish today’s #ootd dress! Another #memade item using @riflepaperco fabric and @sewoveritlondon patterns (they go so well together, don’t you think?!). This is the Kate Dress from the new Work to Weekend eBook and it’s so amazing! The pattern gave me no trouble at all and came together fairly quickly (an afternoon and then the following evening to finish up). I already have the blouse version cut and ready to go and I think it’ll have to be my next project! It’s longer than I usually wear but I love it. Somehow it doesn’t make me look short like other midi dresses do, plus since I made it myself I always have the option to shorten it next time. Definitely making TONS more of these. And so I’m also officially making this the #sewphotohop Day 21 image as well: Go-To Patterns.

Going for dinner and drinks after work today and I hope to take some nice photos of the dress out and about! Look for them later!

The Granite Vest pattern is LIVE! 🌟 Head over to @ladyjaycrochet to snag this beginner-friendly garment pattern and then make one in all your favourite colours. You guys know I dig the stripes, so I made mine using Loops and Threads Joy DK (from @michaelsstores) in the Piña Colada colour way. 😎

I always find it difficult to finish up the jackets I make. The button holes are a nightmare. Now they are done and all I need to do to get this jacket ready for the autumn is to sew in buttons⠀

I have my next sew traced, cut out and ready to go. I actually traced the 3 years and 8 years sizes of this #trapezette pattern from @merchantandmills but it turns out that I didn't have enough of the planned fabric for the 3 year one, so I'll make the 8 years first and see if I want to make this again. I was thinking making two would mean I'd see my improvements. Have you made this pattern?
Psst. Don't took at the corners, they are cut off cos I didn't have quite wide enough fabric 🙈I think it's within the seam allowance 😬

Day 21 @houseofpinheiro #sewphotohop ‘Go to Pattern’
I store all the patterns I use regularly in this @ikeauk wall rack. It keeps them to hand and stops them from getting lost amongst the ones that surface every now and then. I have a number of favourites that I’ve made more than once!
Dress - @theavidseamstress Day Dress.
Top - @tillybuttons Agnes
Sweatshirt - @grainlinestudio Linden.
Skirt - @deer_and_doe_patterns Chardon Skirt.
They are some of my favourites!! I do like to try and mix my patterns up a bit and have just invested in two new sweatshirt options for the Autumn/Winter so looking forward to trying those!!

Thursdays are patternmaking days here at SFA! These are some of the tools we use for flat patternmaking, drafting patterns off basic slopers. Register for fall quarter on our website and we'll teach you what the heck a sloper is 🤣 can't wait to see you in class!

A while ago this was on the cutting board. I’ve now completed the coat only the perfect buttons to find and then button holes. Of course that final press. #sewing #makeyourownclothes #lovesewing #handmade

One can never knit enough socks 🧦- I loved working on these as the pattern is easy, fun to knit but that little cable added some fun. The pattern and yarn are from @urthyarns - though I only adapted the pattern - I hate knitting toe up socks so I knit them on dpns the old fashioned way, I purchased the yarn in my local yyc shop @villekullahandmade #knittersofinstagram #knitstagram #handknitsocks #handknitwardrobe #makeyourownclothes

Okay, full out Kelly Anorak! No mods, cut and sewed a straight size 10.
Next time I might add a double zip so I can unzip from the bottom too. But otherwise, I’m totally ready to cut into the good stuff!
Need tips and support making your own? Join me October 5-7 for a Kelly intensive. Your class fee includes all your materials, just bring your machine (or use one of mine)!

I can’t wait to show off this whole project because I’m really proud of how it turned out, but it’s a test for an unreleased pattern so you’ll have to wait until they release it! In the meantime, check out those little bees and that wee ball fringe trim, and those semi-sheer cuffs! #coveredinbees #patterntester #patterntesting #handmadewardrobe #makeyourownclothes #handmade #memade #makestuff #pghcreative

Now I gotta take salsa lessons💃

When I don't feel like sewing a zip or buttonhole/loop/button ish, I usually go for the tie neck option.....and that happens often!!!
.
It's quite easy to sew and adds a fine, feminine detail to your blouse. You can place it practically anywhere on the neckline...center front/back, shoulder, or somewhere in between!!!
.
Also play with the width of the strips...that can easily turn a plain blouse to a very interesting one! Try it out and I'm sure you'll love the outcome!!
