Another #soisusieblouse in progress. I nearly made a t-shirt from this fabric but I would have had to draft/copy from existing and that sounded like too much work. Made bias binding from the actual fabric this time - the poly cotton I used on the black and stars Susie isn't the nicest. #soishowoff#dressmaking#memade#sewbrizzle
Sewvember Day 3 - Happy Accident. When I sewed up my first @sewoveritlondon#soisusieblouse I didn't get the collar to overlap as it should. I sewed on a big-ish button to make the mistake look intentional and like a design feature of sorts. I'm pretty happy with how it came out. #bpsewvember (no daylight = b/w picture because the artificial light turned my lovely blue-white top grey-yellow)
It's the first of September and that can only mean it's #sewphotohop time 😀 Day 1 is for introductions so here goes... I'm Helen and I love to sew and knit as well as try any other craft I can get my hands on! I might be a little bit sporadic in posting in this challenge as I am currently in the final month of writing up my PhD!
We didn't plan on wearing the same colour today...me in my #soisusieblouse Happy smiles with my girls before attending a memorial service for my friend's beautiful girl who lost her battle with brain cancer at xmas, aged just 10, and more emotional times to come this Friday when we say goodbye to my dad who also lost his cancer battle recently due to #mesothelioma It's a cancer you can only get from exposure to asbestos and it's terminal from the outset. #cancersucks
My #soisusieblouse from @sewoveritlondon hack. I turned it into a lightweight little jacket to use over dresses. I ❤️this pattern and it's so versatile and "hackable". I promise to make the original blouse too soon 🤗. #soishowoff. ➡️SWIPE for more angles.
It's day one of Me Made May. I've not officially pledged yet because I wasn't sure if I would bother this year since it's #memadeeveryday for me, and the thought of documenting my me mades every day feels overwhelming this year for some reason. But what the heck. So here I am, a little rumpled after a busy day at work to show off my day one me made. #slowfashion#imakemyownclothes#memademay2017#sewoverit#soisusieblouse
I got a little bit of sewing done this week! A new Susie blouse has been checked off the list and added to my spring/summer wardrobe. Looking at my list of sewing plans for the season I might as well go ahead and declare it a #sewoveritsummer 😀 More details are on my blog (URL in profile) #sewing#sewoverit#soisusieblouse#soishowoff
