Швейное сообщество разделилось на 2 лагеря в плане шитья по журналам или отказа от них.
Причины разные: кому-то не удобна такая схема работы, кому-то не понятно описание пошива, у кого-то возникают проблемы с посадкой изделий, а кому-то не нравятся модели, представленные в подобных изданиях.
Я отношусь к тем людям, которые шьют по журналам и даже испытываю особые добрые чувства по этому поводу: иногда мне очень нравится сидеть в мастерской без постороннего шума, в том числе компьютера, и шить в тишине по журнальному описанию - своего рода релаксация.
⠀Кроме того себестоимость такой выкройки ниже: журнал Бурда у нас стоит около 2,5$ (в одном журнале более 30 выкроек), калька тоже не очень дорогая - около 4,5$ за 20м. Всегда есть доступ к любой выкройке и описанию пошива.
Не стоит воспринимать каждую модель из журнала совсем буквально, можно изменить длину, материал, цвет, который будет более актуален для вас.
И стоит понимать, что выкройка является усреднённой базой в плане размера, часто она может требовать подгонки по фигуре. Думаю, именно поэтому такие выкройки часто большемерят ➡️ в таком случае где-то можно убрать, а вот добавить бы никак не получилось.
И, собственно, почему я решила написать этот пост:
Журналов по теме шитья у меня аж 41, некоторые покупала именно из-за детских выкроек, некоторые - из-за мужских.
⠀Все имеющиеся выпуски запомнить сложно, и, чтобы по ошибке не купить один и тот же выпуск дважды, я составила себе заметку со списком в телефоне, в которую внесла номера всех своих швейных журналов. Как выглядит этот список можно увидеть в галерее.
А вы шьёте по журналам или, возможно, просто собираете их коллекцию, чтобы в будущем взяться за ту или иную выкройку?
Случалось ли, что покупали один выпуск журнала дважды?
Mother of pearl buttons are so beautiful , each one is unique with its own texture, colour and imperfections that make them special. It’s not surprising that they have been the go-to button for centuries. Somehow they still look as current today as they always have. ✂️🧵🧶 choose some for your next project from our selection. ☝️Link is in our bio or in the pic ☝️
spending my evening on my mending and finishing pile. It was threatening to topple over. But finished a fun knit dress for @gilliand150nz birthday! Got a pair of trousers, skirt and top back into circulation and working on some visible mending for my little one. Not so keen on hand sewing I amuse myself by thinking how it’ll stand to me post apocalypse. #sewnz#visiblemending#handstitching#sewcialists
An awful photo, apologies I was mega tired and couldn’t even be bothered to tidy my hair or make sure that the coat I was posting looked half decent. There are better photos in my feed from Christmas time. This is one of my entries for the @sewover50#so50visible challenge. The challenge is to post an image of your make next to the pattern that you used. This needs to be promoted with a model that’s in keeping with the age range. The coat is #shawlcollarcoat by @themakersatelier I have worn this coat to death since Christmas and fully intend to make another next year out of Melton wool. This version is made from black micro fleece that I had in the sale from @johnlewisandpartners 3.5m for £15 I didn’t use the magnetic 🧲 clasp and I need to re stitch my facings but it’s a wonderful pattern that I highly recommend. #sewover50#sew#sewingchallenge#coat#sewing#instasew#sewersofinstagram#sewcialists
The best Ottobre kids’ pattern ever: the Reggae Jumpsuit! 😍 Fit is spot on, it looks unbearably cute and made from softshell instead of sweat it has been the BEST outerwear for transitional season. Don’t fear those puddles of mud, momma! 😉👌🏻.
👕 #reggaejumpsuit@ottobredesign#size98#softshellfabric .
Edit: Almost forgot to mention that I added knee patches and a double bum layer (pattern provides a „bum piece“) for more sturdiness in those areas! Also, all edges are finished with a sturdy fold-over-elastic, a thicker and wider version of the FOE that is commonly used for lingerie. I think to make up for the thickness of the softshell I also went up one size in width... 🤗

This fabric I found at only £3 a metre was perfect to test a self drafted pattern 🌸
I've spent the last few days finishing some sewing projects. I made myself a new cover for my iPad, because the book sleeve I was using was a bit snug. I also made a pillow I can attach my iPad to when I'm drawing while lazing on the couch. Then there's some pattern weights for sewing (you use them to hold down your patterns for cutting, but they also make great paperweights, obviously) and a dress that actually started life as a crop top that didn't fit me well, so I attached a skirt to the bottom. I'm exhausted now, I think I need a nap!!
The 80’s called - they want their earrings back 🤣😂😳 At the risk of looking ridiculously co-ordinated, I made some polymer clay dangly earrings in lurid colours to match my shirt for tonight’s #sydneyfrocktails2019 Sydney’s wet weather convinced me to make a matching XL sized Ida clutch (free pattern by @kylieandthemachine ) big enough to fit my 🌂 so I don’t leave it behind. Too much, you say? Go big or go home I say!
My sewing journey as a young teenager started with making myself many different pairs of jogging pants using one old generic pants pattern my mom had. There were no sizes and i reshaped the leg into whatever style I was into at the time, and made up all sorts of crazy waistband variations, using whatever random stretchy fabrics my mom had in her stash. I wore them absolutely everywhere. I sewed back then with a major passion, having no idea what I was doing, and making things up as I went. It was such a gift to be able to make clothes that expressed my style, since back then it was almost impossible to find any long enough for my tallness. I spent a lot of my adult years not sewing, and instead buying wayyy too many clothes, and never feeling like I had enough. Recently I have been incredibly inspired by the modern sewing community on here and have rekindled my love for this craft. Teaching myself to sew properly is a slow process, but it is worth every single step. The more I learn and make, the less I want to buy clothes, or even go into the stores, and the more I want to own only items that I truly love, and that will last a very long time. Today I finished these #nosweatpants and theyre making me feel all nostalgic. and very cozy. and theyre long enough. and I truly love them. ♥️
The #darlowpants sew-along starts tomorrow 👏 I am so excited that so many of you signed up to sew with me over the next three weeks! I’m really looking forward to making some new sewing friends 💓
This gorgeous pair of Darlows was made by one of my awesome pattern testers @sew_singapore ❤️
These are my just released #darlowpants which I pattern tested for @inthefolds last year. It’s a fantastic sewing jigsaw and I loved taking my time and having fun with these. I thought the style would add bulk in all the “wrong” places but the lines & silhouette are clever and flattering. Thanks for having me along your journey Emily! Ps View A pockets left off!
I photographed my little dresses yesterday (that my grandma made when I was little) for my upcoming blog series, What Nana Made. I think this green corduroy one is my favorite. The style is so similar to my most recent #hinterlanddress, and I’m thinking a grown-up corduroy one will be on the list for a fall 2018 make. Such a treasure.

I’m not sure why but it seems I’ve been drawn to sewing lots of pink things lately. So much so that many of my close sewing buddies tease me about the sheer amount of pink in my current stash 🙈
Did you know that blue is actually my favorite color? More specifically, the blue of that window pictured right behind me- yet I don’t have a lick of that particular blue currently in my wardrobe 😂

#DDMagnolia by @deer_and_doe_patterns sewn with two front slits, French seams all around, and tighter elastic around the wrists to give the sleeves more volume
Fabric is a deadstock poly chiffon picked up at Fine Fabrics here in GA
Under dress is the #SunnyDress by @fridaypatterncompany sewn up without the sleeves and with a low v-neck in a bamboo French terry from @topstitchatl
Hello! Just stopping by to give the details on yesterdays Valentine’s post. Here’s the same dress and blouse now pictured with a pretty cool hat. I used #newlook6509 as the base of the dress and then added the ruffle and bow detail! The blouse was a lucky thrift 💁🏼♀️ last pic shows the blind hem that my new machine can do (and that I’m very excited about). It makes me want to redo any hem I’ve ever sewn before 😁 @joann_stores
my finished papercut patterns pinnacle top from a washed looking linen. i did version two with shortened sleeves in xxs (for reference i’m 150cm tall, 86cm bust)
i love it but honestly i STRUGGLED with the meeting point of the triangles and i kinda think the pattern instructions and diagrams could be a lot more clear/detailed…i’m def not a beginner but i was really confused with this one! also i split the hem which has made the bias cut parts of the front hang weirdly but eh 🤷♀️
would love to make the v-neck version in future but as suspected, it fell below mid-boob point on me on my muslin lol so it’ll need a bit of altering. has anyone else done this?
