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 decided to film the making of the #SiaDress by Marsha Style. It was the perfect project to sink my teeth into on this vlog and I’m so happy with how it turned out! In my vlog I share the highs and lows, and I even give you a peek into my life as a web developer by day, and stitch witch by “night”, and how I’m navigating my new normal due to the lockdown.

Sia Dress | Scarlet Stitch
Pattern: Marsha Style Sia Dress // Version: C // Size: 6 // Fabric: Rayon Challis from Lowry Fabrics // Face Mask Pattern: Mimi G Style

Sometimes you just have to start before you are ready.

I have two voices. I have my normal talking voice and then there is my “telephone” or “presenting” voice. In this vlog I wanted to be as raw and natural as possible, so you’re going to get full-on normal talking voice Raylene, haha. I’ve always been self-conscious about my accent, but I’ve received messages on Instagram that some of you really love it, and it’s given me the confidence to embrace it! As I do more vlogs, I do hope my vlogging skills will improve, but for now, it is what it is and I hope you will enjoy it as much I have filming it for you.

Without further ado, watch my vlog on Youtube below and scroll further to see some more stunning photos captured by my hubby. I love how everything turned out! Enjoy…

  1. Dear Raylene,
    This dress looks great on you! I love the fabric you picked. Thank you for sharing your experience sewing the dress, it’s really inspiring to see how you move through the project in different sewing sessions including lunch breaks.
    PS: that cheese scone looked yummy! I want to eat a scone now 🙂

      Hi Aisling (what an awesome name!),
      Thanks so much for your amazing comment, I appreciate it.
      Hope you got your scone!

  2. Hi Raylene – I am going to try the approach you have with your sewing – being more mindful. The dress is beautiful on you. And that fabric with the large flowers is also beautiful but totally understand when fabric speaks to you. I work full time as well and wish there was more time to dedicate to sewing. Thank you ! Am looking forward to more of your videos.
