Everything got a bit chaotic...so here are days 11 to 17 in one fell swoop.
This #strathconahenley t-shirt as supposed to be a #gift for my partner. @threadtheorydesigns
It's a #wip.
I still need to press and topstitch the neckline, add sleeves and generally put it together.
His birthday was at the end of October so it has also been a bit of a #struggle as I just don't have much time to sew at the moment...(in fact, I have been asked whether it will be ready for Easter...maybe I should turn it into something for me instead :-)) Sewing helps me be happy so it was good to get back to my machine today. I had fun.
Even though I had to unpick the neckband twice. Seamripper - my essential tool.
It will be worth it in the end hopefully. My partner wore his first strathcona henley continuously last Winter. So it can definitely be classed as everyday wear...hopefully this one will be too.
Several days behind for #bpsewvember - but this WIP (work in progress) is an @inthefolds vintage style skirt made with some linen-ish fabric from an estate sale. Since it’s snowing again today, this may get put aside to be finished next spring. #sewing#sewcialists#sewover50
What’s more fun than looking and feeling 100% YOU??!!Sewing my own clothes is the only way I’ve ever felt 100% me. #bpsewvember topic for today is about ‘fun.’ .
I get so much joy out of creating items that are true representations of myself. .
This dress was the first dress I ever posted on Gina Renee Designs. It’s still one of my favorites and I love to mix it up with new combinations. .
I took several years off from GRD to pursue my career leading a pattern making team in the clothing industry, but now Gina Renee Designs is back in full throttle because it’s just so much FUN 😉

NEW PATTERN FOR SALE
The Leslie Cardigan PDF sewing pattern is now available for sale in our store 🌟🌟🌟 All details of this pattern in the profile link 👆🏽
Finished my #v9279 dress today and while I’m getting a few 1970s bridesmaid vibes I’m pretty happy with the result. Apart from the length I didn’t make any alterations, but it’s much better with a belt #sewliberty#sewcialists#voguepatterns
First dress I ever made for myself still getting wear at Book of Mormon last night. I can tell it was from the early days because I used white thread for the hem? I don't remember what I was thinking but I do remember it was intentional 🤷
The Solina Dress from @namedclothing ‘Breaking the Pattern’. She’s a beauty that Solina. I’m getting some strong ‘medieval queen’ vibes from this design/fabric/color combination...or as my daughter named it: ‘The Game of Thrones Dress’. Sold. Cersei would definetely wear this. But I’m not letting that b**** anywhere near this dress!! 😂. I’m wearing the size 4 and the fit is spot on!! No changes at all. It’s not easy to see from these photos, but the skirt has a sexy high cf split. The cupro/tencel fabric is so dreamy - like wearing cream! It’s sold out at the moment but will be back in stock at @metermeterdk next week. If you want to see this dress irl you are welcome to stop by the shop in Aarhus, Denmark ♡ Have a nice weekend everyone
Well I feel self indulgent. So many photos of myself- what is this!? (Anyone that knows me, knows I have an intense dislike of getting my photo taken). But I have a backlog of garments I've sewn that needed documenting, so I put on my big girl pants for the greater good of the IG sewing community.
These overalls began as my Fremantle Pants pattern and I added the top section from offcuts patched together.
Gorgeous ikat fabric from @wovenstoriestextiles
Worn with my Botany Top underneath in a super soft rayon from Spotlight.
Both the pants and top sewing patterns are available on my website as a PDF download.
