My fancy frock 😁is finished for #sew3unsewn @theruralsewist using a duchess satin I was gifted and have had in my stash for ages!I’ve really enjoyed sewing it despite the fact this 👗was supposed to be Vogue8943😋I used the bodice and sleeves, though rotated bust darts to waist and then to arm scythe to create a pattern piece for tulle overlay 🌸I added a straight skirt to bodice as the Vogue one was a full circle and felt too heavy and not me🙈The tulle was just gathered and sewn on. It was a maxi tulle👗but then the proportions felt wrong, so I chopped it off late one night 😬and added to sleeves as frills😁Yesterday I thought 😳 but now I have tried it on I’m okay 😆Thanks to all the lovely encouraging messages I’ve had along the way 🌸🌸🌸#rebelsewist #sewmystash2019 #stashbusting #sewingchallenge #tulledress #ilovesewing #dressmaker #sewover50 #handmadewardrobe #sewistsofinstagram #fancyfrock #makingitupasigoalong #spontaneoussewing #seamstress #diyfashionsewersofinstagram
My husband loves his new @threadtheorydesigns #fairfieldbuttonup He chose the fabric , I made a toile, made the slim fit version with the back pleat and he’s very happy with the fit 😊 I slow sewed and learnt new techniques 😀The instructions and tutorials are fab, and yes he wants more 👔 😀#threadtheorypatterns #threadtheorydesigns #slowsewing #husbandsewing #sewover50 #fairfieldshirt #mensewing #sewingformen #sewersofinstagram #imadethis #indiepatterns

Loving a couple of new hashtags for 2019🎉This one #sew3unsewn is a great idea by Sam @theruralsewist for sewing yr stash and patterns and finishing a ufo😀 So my choices are Pattern✂️#seamworkosaca skirt, which is a lovely reversible wrap skirt with different colour blocking options 😀fabric from my stash ✂️a champagne duchess satin 😀and my ufo is that dp studio asymmetric skirt I posted a while ago, that now has the side pleats unpicked and some how will be turned into a skirt 🤔😋#sewyourstash #sewistsofinstagram #sewover50 #isew #handmadewardrobe #ilovesewing #sewersofinstagram #sewingproject
Well gone totally off piste!⛷⛷⛷⛷on my Vogue 8943 dress except the bodice (altered to fit ) and sleeves! My stories shows my journey and unpicking of a huge circle skirt😋but now I have added a different skirt, a straight one and a waist ruffle, which I like😋and undecided whether to tulle overlay to knee or go maxi tulle!
