MOST RECENT

Latest prototype: getting close! Apologies for the sloppy stitching and lack of pattern matching. I wish I had a picture of a “before” sleeve. On the standard pattern, there is a lot of excess fabric on the back sleeve when my arm is down, rotating the shoulder dot has mostly fixed this. I’ve also removed all the ease from this sleeve, and shifted the bust dart. Since there is no shaping on the back piece, the back is more relaxed but not as shapeless as a standard dress shirt. This fabric is a crisp Italian cotton shirting. I used some akoya shell buttons instead of my usual mother of pearl 😊 I think this is a good base, maybe I’ll play with collar shapes next? #granvilleshirt #isewmyownclothes #sewaholicgranville #memadeeveryday #questfortheperfectshirt #handmadewardrobe #shirtmaking

First prototype in the #questfortheperfectshirt . Nothing special in the front, I just removed all the waist shaping from the back. I was going to put back darts but after trying them out I don’t see the point. The side seam shaping is enough for me. My next two iterations involve rotating the sleeve dot and reshaping the sleeve cap, as well as modifying the front a bit. I also changed my buttonholes to be more rounded at the ends, looks really similar to the kind you get from a vintage buttonholer. This fabric feels really luxurious and part of me wishes I saved it. It’s a vintage cotton shirting (36” wide!) I randomly bought over a year ago. #granvilleshirt #sewaholicgranville #memadeeveryday #isewmyownclothes #handmadewardrobe #shirtmaking

Two sleeve plackets completed. Next up cuffs but that will have to wait for next time.

I came very very VERY close to throwing this thing away at the halfway point. But hello, new favorite shirt! #sewaholicgranville

This shirt has a lot of problems (the collar is off center by a full 1/4 inch!!!!, i did a dumb thing with the plackets, flat felling a sleeve cap seam without making a huge wrinkly puckered mess is surely not possible) but it fits darn well (after taking it way in at the shoulders and upper back, letting it way out over my bum, taking it in at the bottom of the side seams, shortening the hem by 2.5 inches and the sleeves by 1.5, and doing a square shoulder adjustment) SO I’M GONNA WEAR IT. THE END. I’m gonna make more, too! #sewaholicgranville.

I have just enough Luckyday (ooo genuine pearl!!!) buttons for my 2nd #sewaholicgranville shirt. Photos forthcoming. Probably.

Posing in my new outfit, an homage to the fabulous one worn by #francesmcdormand at the Venice festival. Jeans and shirt made by me and my vintage #singerfeatherweight. All ready for the pub now! #imakemyownclothes #sewaholicgranville #selfdraftedtrousers #guthrieandghani #sewcialists #memade #memadeeveryday

😍😍😍 Love this in-progress #hollyburnskirt with a long-finished #granvilleshirt. The skirt will have a bib and straps added to it so it’ll eventually be an overall skirt (what do you call that?) for @michelle_monk, but I will be making a basic skirt for myself out of this lovely @blackbirdfabrics poppy rayon later.

My #francesmcdormandvenice shirt is finished. I had to really push my fabric through the machine to sew the buttonholes, but at least it worked. Pattern is based on the #sewaholicgranville. Jeans buttons from #evilbay. Have just finished drafting the matching wide leg jeans from my block, so nearly there. #doubledenim #memade #imakemyownclothes

Made already two #seamworkleonora skirts and I ❤️ them! This one is made with #darknavyblue #denim and I used red #top stitching and silver buttons. Alterations: I lengthened the pattern quite a bit and added #slantpockets plus red lining so it doesn’t crawl up the legs. I may see one more for summer, it’s really a quick make and it looks good. On the pictures I wear a #sewaholicgranville with the #leonoraskirt which I wouldn’t make again. It’s okay but unfortunately not a satisfying make.

Finished my Liberty print @sewaholic Granville shirt! I decided to round off the collar to make it a bit different, and I'm really pleased with how it turned out.

Thinking back to one of my prouder moments at my job: arranging a DIY s'mores bar for the new students back in August. The picture frame and the wooden boxes were given second lives by current students. And I felt pretty snazzy in my #memade blouse and trousers. DIY for everyone!⠀

Work style with a cherry on top! New me-made shirt in the rotation already, this is the Granville button up shirt by @sewaholic . More photos and thoughts up on my blog!

The last #sewaholicgranville I made was a size 8, and it felt all around too big (still love it though!). This time I made a size 6, and it fits perfectly! I did take it in an inch or two at the hip, but other than that, no alterations! I did not add buttons or buttonholes on the sleeve cuffs because I almost always roll them up, and I still have a mild case of PTSD from my buttonhole messing up on the last one. 😱 .

I can’t describe how satisfying it is, knowing that you can make your own clothes. It’s not cheaper than buying RTW, and it’s definitely not faster, but it is 100x more rewarding. ❤️ .

This (heavily modified) #sewaholicgranville must be one of my favourite #memade garments. I feel so great wearing it and I just adore the light, airy fabric.

#sewaholicgranville in Robert Kaufman mammoth flannel...this was my muslin and I LOVE having a flattering flannel shirt!! I cut the back seams down to a smaller size on my pattern after this one - left more ease in case I have shrinking over time and in case I want to wear over a T-shirt.
