#sewfor30minutes

10 posts

Finished & labelled - one #denimskirt using #freesewingpattern from @spoonflower blog. More a-line than I expected & a little wonky because I went slightly off-grain during multiple adjustments needed. I also fitted it a little too well to my lopsided body😆 Didn't have a jeans button so used a battered old button from my stash that seemed suitably western. Used denim from #moodfabricsnyc & #libertyfabric for pockets both purchased 5 years ago so this is  #offwitherstash @tuulikkiathome

I'm recovering from a gluten contamination after eating out with family last night, so a little bit of #handsewing and watching @wimbledon is all I'm capable of today. So frustrating as I've only got buttonhole and hem left to do after making good progress on my #denimskirt yesterday.
I ignored instructions from @spoonflower blog & used the alternative #waistband tutorial  from @closetcase.patterns instead. Did forget the bit about checking top edge matched before #topstitching, but it was a quick fix. Also used the #gingerjeans sewalong instructions to make belt loops.

I love Helen's layered mixed-media technique! 😍Regram @lhkedunne ✨ In between some #sewfor30minutes  sessions I've been picking up my pens & pencils again to #sketchmystyle on @mybodymodel #realbodycroquis & sketched a few dress ideas in my usual mix of pen, pencil & paper. Inspired by  @raquel_sewing_knitting_in_asia I  used tracing paper , felt tip pens & sharpie to sketch my favourite Liberty  #memades & really liked the way I could quickly build up colour this way. ⠀ #diyootd #mybodymodel #beyourownbodymodel #croquisforeverybody #everybodyisagoodbody #fashionsketch #sewover50 #sewcialists #makeitsewcial #shortsewists #sewmysize ⠀

#workinprogess on the back of my #spoonflower #denimskirt and I'm channeling my inner Tim Gunn to #makeitwork - used an old bread board with a cardboard template to get a crisp edge on back pocket instead of a Clapper - used 2 strands of #gutermann sew-all thread instead of #topstitching thread
- did my 1st kick pleat instead of clipping into the seam to finish the back vent.

Loving my new #ikeamicke desk - put together #freepdfpattern from @spoonflower blog, traced it ready for grading, cut out fabric & did back waist alterations after a fit test.  So much better for my back than using the dining room table to do this stuff 👍 
Not loving decision to cut straight size 12 though - only thing holding it up after machine basting were my bum & belly. 😳😆

I've been back in work today wearing my well-loved #sewgirl tunic, a very early make which got shortened a while ago to wear to work.  I'd been wearing stuff from the RTW side of my wardrobe over the last 3 days  but a long weekend with lots of #sewfor30minutes sessions means I still met my pledge to @sozoblog for #memademay2019 . Also means there's a new #memade item ready to join the other #memades in my wardrobe as well as a couple of alterations ticked off my to-do list 😊

Signed up to join in with @sozoblog #memademay challenge for the first time late last night.  My pledge for #memademay2019 is 'to wear my existing #memade wardrobe items at work and home. I might share selfies or sketches of my #diyootd on Instagram, I might not. I will use my stash to #sewfor30minutes every day during May 2019.' I forgot to include #flatlayclothes as a way of sharing but I might do that too!! #sewover50 #makeitsewcial #sewcialists #isew #imakethings #simplicity1873 #simplicity2129 #shortsewists #memadeflatlay #mybodymodel #sketchmystyle #beyourownbodymodel  #everybodyisagoodbody #pinkcoatclub #sewingpin
