November 13th: struggle😊 This tulle skirt, which was the underskirt for my wedding dress was by fare my biggest struggle😫 8 layers of tulle to be cut perfectly into half circles then sewn together😆 It was definitely a 2 person job so I had a lot of help from my kind sister @masterie_design , without the help this troublesome skirt would literally not exist🤣 We had to construct a giant cardboard-quarter-circle-device to help with all the cutting. I also did not have enough space in my apartment so we had to bring it all to the school where I work🤣
After all the cutting was done came the sewing. We had to bring the sewing machine into the living room and my sister was sewing and I stood on the side holding the skirt and rotating it as we went🤯 I am pleased with the results😁 When the big that came so did another struggle; getting in and out of places🤣 #bpsewvember .
🇳🇴Dag 13: kamp😊 Dette tyllskjørtet, som var undreskjørtet til brudekjolen min, har til nå vert min største kamp😫 8 lag med tyll som ble klippet i perfekte halvsirkel og så sydd sammen😆 Det var definitivt en jobb for 2 personer, så jeg fikk mye hjelp av min snille søster @masterie_design , uten denne hjelpen tror jeg ikke det hadde blitt noe skjørt🤣 Vi måtte konstruere en svær kvartsirkel i papp for å gjøre klippingen lettere. Jeg hadde heller ikke plass til å klippe i min leilighet så vi måtte dra til skolen hvor jeg jobber for å klippe der🤣 Etter klippingen skulle vi sy, det var og en kamp for med alle lagene med stoff måtte søstera mi sy og jeg holde alt oppe og passe på å rotere det litt etter litt🤯 Ble bra til slutt da😁 så kom den store dagen og kampen med å komme seg inn og ut av ting som biler for eksempel🤣
The wonder of special moments. I’ve just rescued this butterfly from the house as I was photographing my secret project for sewing group on Saturday 😍. We still have butterflies hatching from somewhere in our house every few weeks, even after 7 years living here and having rescued the place from demolition. Amazing. If the weather warms up they even hatch over winter but I’m never sure how, or if, they survive once they are released. #heskethemporiumhandmade#heskethemporium#sewityourself#butterliesinheskethhouse#heskethhousebutterflies
Well hello little lime! 😍 I adore this little Bernina Nova and she is the first lime colour of the 5 I already own. She is going to replace a not so robust machine in the sewing club. After a good clean and oil, she is sewing like a dream. For a change she is in beautiful condition and has clearly been loved. One of the first things I always do when I get a new machine is clean, oil and give it a bit of a service. Then I change the thread and the needle and test her out. Then I remove any old thread from the bobbins because a) you don’t know how old it is, b) you don’t know how many colours are wound on the same reel (no, no - in this case, one bobbin had 6 different colours which means you change you bobbin constantly), and c) sometimes novices wind them all wrong - see the last picture. Thrilled to have her with me and now I just need to name her and take her to her first class on Saturday morning. #vintagebernina#berninanova#vintagesewingmachine#caringforsewingmachines#heskethemporiumhandmade#heskethemporium#sewityourself#sewingclassesinwigan#wigansewinggroup
Its getting colder so naturally I am becoming more domestic. I’ve been working (not continuously) on this project for about a month now. I made the pattern and constructed this. I’m hoping with wear and washing the fabric will relax a little, and lay flatter to the body. Its made of a beautiful plaid rayon with a flannel herringbone printed lining. I picked the top layer because it had black, brown, cream, red, and navy in it so I knew it would go with just about anything.
Ever made a dress & it wasn't big enough on the bust if it fitted your shoulders... Or was too big on shoulders if it fitted your bust?
Maybe your pattern needed a full bust adjustment (FBA) like Stella did here....😊👕👗👘👚... We can teach you how to alter patterns to fit you in our Weekly Stitch Classes in Hove (link in bio) #stitchclasses#sewingclasses#fittingpatterns#dressmakingtips#janomemakes

I only went to @abakhan_liverpool for elastic....
No regrets though! This sequinned sweater knit and the super 90s stretch velvet are already earmarked for some very quick projetcts so they won't be sat in my stash for long. The sequins in the pic look bronze but they're actually black and in a sort of tiger stripe pattern which I looooooove 🐯
