I’ve been feeling really down.
This whole lockdown situation has got me feeling quite down lately. While I’m enjoying working from home and being able to enjoy my own space all day every day and not having to be around people, it’s gotten to a point where I realized I don’t have the self-love I thought I had.
Okay, I know I said I would only make a pattern once until I’ve worked through my pattern stash, but I love the #SudleyDress so much that I had to make a version with the collar!
…this is what I wanna be.
Remember this song by KT Tunstall? I couldn’t resist, hehe. I can be quite punny when I feel like it!
…Projects Half Done!
Every sewist has a box of shame filled with unfinished sewing projects. At least, I’d like to think this is true, haha! I can’t be the only one… am I?
A puff sleeve ruffle dream!
Oh my goodness, when Friday Pattern Company released the Sagebrush top recently I was crushing hard on the puff sleeves and the ruffles.
My new favourite secret pyjamas.
About a week ago, Helen’s Closet launched the #ArdenPants which are classic high-waisted woven joggers. I’m a fan of woven-anything, so any chance I get to make something in a woven that is as comfortable as wearing knits, I’m so there.
I only discovered the indie sewing pattern world last year.
And since then I’ve been building up my little collection of digital sewing patterns. I went a little crazy with the Black Friday pattern sales last year, and now I have so many patterns that I was forced to get more organized.
A couple of weeks ago I received an email from Deer and Doe to review their newly released Passiflore coat dress.
I was immediately on board because the first pattern I made when I discovered the whole world of indie pattern sewing was the Myosotis dress. I had a blast making the Passiflore. It was the first time I attempted a notched collar and let me tell you, I am so proud of this make!
This is a very hard post for me to write.
If you’ve been following my stories on Instagram, you’ll know that I’ve been having a hard time with this whole lockdown situation in that I don’t really want it to come to an end. Let me explain.
The #RoscoeDress has been on my list of things to make ever since I saw it for the first time last year.
As you may already know, I didn’t start sewing with patterns until recently. My makes were always self-drafted, so I have tons of catching up to do. With that said, I have decided to commit to making at least one new pattern a week. It obviously depends on my time, materials and if I have anything else going on in a particular week that I need to focus on.
