This post is for those who ask the differences between having an elastic waist versus a banded waist: The b&w skirt has an elastic waist & the pic shows the back side so you can see the zipper. This is best for those who don’t want to commit to a banded waist who may fluctuate in weight & want a lil “give” (up or down) in the waist. Swipe ➡️ The pleated pink & gold skirt is a banded waist (zipper is on back side) this is for those who want their waist and to match the rest of the skirt & those comfortable w/the waistband being their exact waist measurement. 👍🏽😁 #ankara #africanprintslovers #ankarastyles #ankarafashion #africanfabric #sewcute #sewhandmade #isewityoushowit #teamnopattern #madebyme #threadandsew #isew #memade #shesews #handmade #sewistsofig #seamstress #sewingbee #bestoftheday #fashionista #fashionable #model #style #styletip #couture #sewersofinstagram

There’s a new #DIY video on my channel! I show you how to make this tartan skirt. It has a flat front with elasticated waistband in the back and it has pockets! #linkinbio ✂️

Love this new blouse I made from a piece of hand woven fabric I bought in Tunisia. Changed the sleeves and the hem of pattern @burda_style 03/2014 #119 to get this look.
This then is my first July entry for #burdachallenge2018 as well as my 5th make for #2018makenine 😊
P.S. There's a blog post of course and a little tutorial or two on the changes I made 😉

So we were walking through Orvieto and found this church that is monochrome stripy. Like seriously Italy, ever corner there is an unexpected turn.

We're running another session of our hand sewing class in August for these gorgeous hand stitched blankets. They're the perfect size for a baby blanket or a throw, and would make a great heartfelt gift.

Sometimes when your To Do list is overwhelmingly long, the best thing to do on a Sunday afternoon is sew a dress. Right??? Yesterday I hacked the stunning Ogden Cami pattern by @truebias to make it an A line dress with pockets (of course!). I also added a little pleat in the back to make it come in slightly at the natural waist and then flare out again. I think this makes for a much better fit on me. (Scroll to see a detail of another Ogden cami and a close up of the pleat.) .

This dress fits so well and is ridiculously comfortable. And when you’re 5’8”, a custom hemline means that it is actually long enough!!!

My client asked for a “raspberry” colored maxi dress- so from here on out it’s not magenta it’s raspberry okuurrrr ✔️Never a dull moment in my sewing studio 😜😂#clientchronicles #laughablemoments #raspberry #tankstylemaxi #maxidress #sewcute #sewhandmade #isewityoushowit #teamnopattern #madebyme #threadandsew #isew #memade #shesews #handmade #sewistsofig #seamstress #sewingbee #bestoftheday #fashionista #fashionable #model #style #styletip #couture #sewersofinstagram

On a visit to my parents' I found Ted. Sewn in brown paper, Ted was created on a whim during my time at art uni.
My sewing was truly awful then. I could not even work a sewing machine until the textiles department took me in, but I was curious. The world of cross stitch, embroidery, quilts, dressmaking and sewing had a special allurement for me- oddly given the hatred my home economics teacher at school reserved for my sewing attempts. I began to research and attempt sewing, cross stitch and embroidery. Experiments included a paperquilt, Ted and a dress made from the pages of an original Enid Blyton book.
Looking at Ted with his skinny arms and fat legs, I can see just how much I've progressed and I'm so glad I persisted in following my urge to sew despite all those times my teacher held my work up to my peers as an example of poor sewing. .

Day 2 in Roma and obviously I’m in love. 🇮🇹

Showing off my cork fabric cross-body bag. It’s my first attempt at a purse made from cork and I’m so happy with how it turned out. My local quilt shop turned me on to @fabricfunhouse for the cork fabric and premade strap, and their selection and quick delivery are great! Machine embroidery was a breeze. Can’t wait to dream up some more designs in cork!

Last weekend my daughter wore the little dress I made for her...and looked incredibly sweet in it 😌 I, unfortunately didn’t wear my matching dress. But never mind. 😅
