Day 22: I’m wearing this today... A Fraser sweatshirt in a beautifully patterned cotton jersey. This is my cosy wear house jumper because when the fabric turned up it’s a peach colour which does nothing for my skin tone, but I love the print on it so much I was determined to use it for something... so now I have a lovely snug sweatshirt with (deliberately) extra long sleeves #sewphotohop#frasersweatshirt#sewcialist#sewcialists#imakemyownclothes#makersgonnamake#sewing
I’m so excited to start sewing my slip dress!
For the first time I’ve actually read through the instructions first before I start (this is bad I know 😂) and it is great to have a clear picture of what steps I need to do and the correct order. •
Hopefully I will get it finished today so I can start making the beautiful green dress to go on top ✂️💚
Blown away by the amazing work by the students in our Intermediate Sewing Class over the past few weeks! We advise our students to complete our Beginner Sewing Class prior to this class, so make sure you get that sorted out first 😉 → Link in bio #sewfunsg

I knew right from the get-go that I was going to atleast ATTEMPT to make my own wedding dress. I also knew that I wasn't going to tell anyone - the pressure to deliver was one reason, but it was more that I knew that every single person would ask me if I was making it (and they did - sorry that I straight out lied to you all!!) and I thought I'd enjoy it more if I wasn't asked for updates on my progress. I very much wanted it to be a personal, independent adventure.
I found this dress online and knew immediately that I wanted to use it as my inspiration. The back cut-out, waistband, sheer sleeves and embroidery ticked all the right boxes for me.
That was last August, and over the following year I ventured through pattern construction and fabric experimentation to create the perfect dress.
I’ve realised through the #sewphotohop challenge that I have two go-to patterns I wear so much they’re practically a uniform. I’ve made the @burda_style Raglan Tunic Dress (10/2014) in every fabric from sandwashed silk to comfy jersey and wear variations on it all through the year with or without layers. And @sewoveritlondon’s #soikimonojacket was a wardrobe revelation, pairing perfectly with everything from relaxed tees and jeans to formal wedding guest outfits. This latest version leapfrogged the York pinafore on my to-sew pile - made in the softest cotton linen blend from TMOS in Walthamstow. I’ve made this pattern so many times I figured it was time to experiment - so I added pockets bound into the hem and seams. Which is handy, as I made this lovely orange cupro version of my favourite burda shift without them 🤦🏻♀️ Enjoying the relaxed workwear vibe and this deliciously soft fabric. Shout out to @laura_eksmith whose similar overshirt look inspired this make ✂️

Ok so I've added a fun #workshop to the website. 🌟A 'Revamp a Sweater' class to teach you a few fun and easy ways to upcycle and give new life to an old jumper! 🌟Come spend an afternoon with me in the sewing studio! ✂️Book now:
I finally gave in and bought the #inariteedress pattern - I’ve got a few other tshirt/tunic dress patterns so held out for ages as I thought it might duplicate, but the cocoon shape is actually really different to anything else I have so it was well worth buying. I made this one from lovely sage-green double gauze to bring on holiday, and have plans for many more when I’m back #memadeholiday#sewcialists

Day 21: go-to-patterns: the #ljpicnicdress has been my go-to for years - it’s got a little texture at the bust but not enough to be fussy, and it’s easy to dress up or down. We just released her this summer and I’ve loved seeing everyone’s versions! ❤️ #sewphotohop#sewphotohop2018#lilaandjune
