The warmer season is approaching here in the southern hemisphere, and I’m excited to start wearing dresses again.
If you follow me on social media you’ll know that I’m currently working on my capsule wardrobe, and ironically enough aren’t many dresses in the first collection I’ve put together. Granted, it’s only 6 pieces. I’ll be sharing more about that in a future blog post, but for now, my point is that I love dresses, and creating this capsule wardrobe is challenging me to be more open to exploring other facets of this amazing sewing craft.
A little behind the seams vlog featuring this statement babydoll dress.
I’ve been wanting to get back into self-drafting makes again, and I thought this would be the perfect little project to do so!
I filmed a behind the seams vlog of the making of the Sia dress!
I’ve been wanting to do a behind the seams vlog style series on my Youtube channel for years now, and I finally decided that the only way to get it going is to just start, so here we are!
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.
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!
