📣 I made my clothes. This is a statement so powerful to me, it has a permanent place in my sewing room. Sewing means I get to choose. Sure, it means I get a fit far better than most rtw, but it also means I get to choose exactly how I present myself to the world. And it means I can choose what brands, if any, to continue to support. I don’t have to participate in fast fashion. I can choose not to support companies that do not themselves support fair wages, safe labor practices, and clean environmental practices.

And now I’m focusing even harder on my fabric acquisitions too. I don’t want my hobby to be someone else’s harm. I can choose organic or eco-friendly textiles. I can choose deadstock/designer remnants that would otherwise go to the landfill. I can choose fair trade. I can choose not to support the fabric equivalent of fast fashion. And for those who think eco has to be expensive, this week, I’ll be featuring a few US sellers that have offered such fabrics for affordable prices. (I encourage my foreign friends to do the same. Shipping across countries can be cost prohibitive, but it’s also a larger footprint, so share where you get your eco fabric, so those in your country can do so too! If you don’t want to make a separate post, leave a comment below and I’ll write up a blog post compiling all the sources.) This is not a trend. It’s not a bandwagon to jump on and off. It’s a movement. A revolution. We WILL make a difference 💪

Finally made a #namedclothing #kielowrapdress. Yes, I’m the last blogger to do so!

I’ve got back into dancing recently after a looong period of feeling disillusioned with it, and since all my workout gear is now ancient, I’ve been making some replacements! This is a @namedclothing Selja knot tee, and it’s the ideal thing to dance in. Practicing my Single Ladies routine for tonight’s class with @tinydancerlou 💃💃💃 #sewing #namedclothing #seljaknottee #dancegear #makersgonnamake #iambeyonce

Who ate all the ice creams, drank gin and enjoyed the sunshine ☀️ to the maximum ? What a fun weekend. I was planing a pulmi skirt in suede but I spend the weekend looking at peoples summer clothes. I need pretty dresses. 🇧🇷Final de semana no calor curtindo os raros dias quentes.

Me made Inari top and Alexandria pants were a perfect outfit for exploring the temples with our lovely tour guide Hayman. .

Here’s a more detailed look at my completed Reeta dress 👗 As I mentioned previously, I absolutely love this dress and I am so pleased with how it turned out. I still found the collar/yoke section quite difficult, despite making a practise run last week. However the clever design and lovely style mean I will definitely make more! I did have to chop approximately five inches off the hem of the dress - I am 5 foot 3 and the dress was made for ladies who are 5 foot 8. Consequently I raised the slit in the leg by a few inches and left the button placement until the end so I could place them according to my proportions, rather than the pattern specifications. I also cheated and didn’t sew buttonholes - the dress is so big that I can slip it over my head, so I just stitched the buttons through both pieces of fabric. I also top-stitched the collar and lapel to give a sharper finish. The drawstring waist is a wonderful touch, it’s so flattering and comfortable. This dress is so perfect for spring that I’m already planning my next one! 💕 Pattern: @namedclothing 💙 Fabric: @atelierbrunette purchased from @guthrieghani ✂️

Yesterday I took the sleeves off my #sapporocoat that I made last fall and, thankfully, I am so pleased with the result. I really liked the original pattern, and I was happy with how mine turned out but, I honestly wasn’t very comfortable wearing it. And I tried. The large dropped sleeves felt too fussy for me and just not very practical. I loved looking at it on the hanger but I’m over owning clothes that I don’t actually wear so — off with the sleeves! ✂️

Yllätyskangashaaste sisälsi pelkkää mustaa, haastetta kerrakseen! Testiin lähti Namedin Gemma- kaava muokattuna. Lopputulos hyvä, kuvaaminen vaan ei onnistu. #saumanvara #dreaminaari #dreamcircus #ehtavaatteet #namedclothing #gemma #itselletein #madebypimpolo

🌺 joli hacking 🌺 voici ma version du célèbre tuto d’Emmanuelle @23ruedesroses 🌺 patron: #inaritee de @namedclothing - tissu: coton brodé de chez @franceduvalstalla 🌺 le tuto est top top top et dispo sur le blog de @basileetleon 🌺🌺🌺 #inariteedress #namedclothing #balzaclike #topcharliesangels #franceduvalstalla

I got inspired by Aydan Collarless Dress of the first @namedclothing collection from 2013. The pattern is no longer available, so I made my own t-shirt version. The black jersey is from @ehtavaatteet and the t-shirt pattern I started with is Aini by @tehtaamo & @tyyneesteri . Paired here with #alexandriapegtrousers in sretch sweat by @ommellinen . #sewing #saumanvara #sewminaari #dreaminaari #ehtavaatteet #ommellinen #namedclothing

Totally embracing the 90s with these overalls made using this gorgeous fabric from The Fabric Warehouse. I used the Jamie jeans pattern from @namedclothing (cut 4 sizes bigger) as the basis for the pants then winged the rest of it.
It looks pretty slick styled with a cute black blouse 😎 #sewcialists #namedclothing

Days 12/13: I sewed the side seams and wasn’t super happy with the sweater (it looks a lot better on my dressform Sally than it does on me). So after a few attempts at keeping the sleeves, I hacked them off and have decided to go with a Talvikki... tunic? Sides are basted and hems unfinished but I’m loving this new direction. #the100dayproject #100daysofsewingclothes

Wore my newest make to the zoo today to celebrate my youngest turning three!
These are slightly modified @namedclothing #ninniculottes in the most amazing pleased satin fabric from @minervacrafts that I’ll be reviewing on their blog soon! Look at that colour! 😍
