Refashion! I gave this swiss dot chambray #louboxtop
a big chop over the weekend. It was the kind of make you think you'll wear a ton then don't...I think largely because I've switched to more high waisted styles. So I chopped off the curved hem, took in the sides and did a slight hi low hem. Looks funny on the hanger but I love it so. And such a satisfying thing: to rework something and love it again! #sewcialist #instasew #igsew #sewist #handmadwardrobe #sewistofinstagram
You guys I am really starting to get bored with my wardrobe 😭 the fruits of my labor this winter ( sewing summer frolics) have paid off, but I am rewearing the same things over and over again. 😣. Not having my own sewing studio is forcing me to slow down and work real slow ( and clean 🙃) on one project at a time. Not to mention it is super humid in Seattle, and I am trying hard to not expose my skin to the sun much / hence the tan lines❤️ However looking on the bright side 🤗,I have some fall makes cut out just waiting for the right opportunity to get going , and waiting to purchase a new a coverstitch or serger ( haven’t decided! ) which has me excited for Fall. One of my favorite summer makes so far is this skirt made with a vintage rayon cotton blend, I wear it at least 2tx a week with a different top. I used the #dress47
skirt bottom and just lengthened it. I am also obsessed with these green slides found at Target 😁hoping to squeeze in one more summer dress to help beat the heat. Can’t wait to share my fabric and pattern I am using 💕
Any suggestions on serger vs cover stitch or machines ? I am leaning toward the Janome cover stitch in my stories, mainly because it’s the most affordable option and I am done with my brother 1034d looking to upgrade a notch.

Final 2 projects. Room for improvement for sure!
Thanks Benny for being ever so patient with my impatience!
Narrowed down and organized all patterns , fabrics, trims and notions!! 🎉🎉 Not pictured over 4 garbage bags and 3 boxes full of sewing tidbits and other household things. I haven’t even made it into the kids rooms yet 😩 and the children keep pulling out the trims and fabrics for their babies and collections, regardless a step in the right direction. I have a few new projects to cut out before the move, so I can sew at my leisure without worrying about taping together patterns and what to sew next! Most all items will be held in a storage unit so I have to be super selective. This will be a great practice for me not to purchase any new patterns for awhile!
Any tips on how you store your tissue paper patterns? I can never fit them back into the original envelope, so I just clip bind them together. I store my others in flat plastic containers. Someday I dream of the ultimate sewing space where my patterns are clipped hanging on beautiful hangers, traced out in butcher paper 😬😍 until then this will do💙
Made a bucket bag with 4-string braided strap on Monday. For the first time in 8 lessons, I wasn't fighting with the machine. It didn't jam on me. This is the most finished bag I've made that doesn't look like you can get it for $10 at Bugis Village.
