So this is it! 😊My #stitchedwithatwist pattern hacked @tillybuttons #sewingrosa dress 😀I love this sewing challenge hosted by @i_seam_sew_happy_xx @oh_liverpool_lou and had sooo much fun thinking up ideas and making it☺️I was inspired by maxi shirt dresses, my fabric stash( trying to #stashbust )mixed prints and the seventies vibe in fashion at the moment😀So I added a big frill to the hem, frills to the yoke front and back, frills to the shoulder seams, cuffs to the sleeves, a tie belt to the back and a velvet ribbon and popper closing to the front😁My limited amount of each fabric dictated the design💛🌸😊One of my main loves of sewing is the design and creation of ideas in my head😋This is my first maxi dress, but I would love to make another in darker colours maybe or in corduroys🤔Feel good using my stash though😋#tillybuttonspattern #patternhack #patternhacking #sewmuchfun #shirtdress #sewistsofinstagram #diysewing #handmadefashion #sewingchallenge #sewover50 #sewersofinstagram #memade #sewingmakesmehappy #isewmyownclothes #indiepatterns #dressmakers #sewme
#stitchedwithatwist in progress😋It’s going to plan, frills everywhere,velvet ribbon trim (my favourite 😊)and different twists using two fabrics😁Having so much fun with this challenge hosted by @i_seam_sew_happy_xx @oh_liverpool_lou 😀Can you guess which pattern I’m hacking?🤔I was determined to sew from my stash, but think this colour combo is a bit ‘out there!’😂 I’m having lots of fun though😁#frills #fabriccombo #stashbusting #sewmuchfun #sewingchallenge #handmadefashion #diysewing #patternhacking #patternhack

A@cocowawacrafts #cwpumpkincardi for Halloween😋This is my entry for the #cosycardichallenge hosted by @amanda_isewalot @thestitchsistersuk 😀I made the #cwpumpkindress longer length version out of 1m of little lamb 🐑organic cotton shearling @fabworksmillshop from my stash and the ribbing and sweatshirt bands were scraps🌈😊It is soo cosy and warm, like wearing a big hug!😊This fabric choice was a last minute decision as trying to #stash bust☺️It was very enjoyable to make apart from the poppers!😬They took me a whole afternoon, several cups of ☕️, 🍫 and walking away🙃Why were poppers so hard?!😳Any popper advice welcome😂I used prym jersey snaps, but think I’ll need to redo poppers as not holding on too well 🙈Anyway I love my cardi and it’s a fab comfy pattern 😁#cardiganpattern #cocowawapatterns #sewistsofinstagram #sewingjersey #indiepatterns #memadeeveryday #sewover50 #handmadefashion #coatigan #cwpumpkincardidress #memadewardrobe #cosycardigan #sewingchallenge #sewersofinstagram

Stars and stripes! 😀Styling my new stripy #zierstoffpatterns #ginaskirt with my starry #coolcraftingwrap 😁I have been simple, slow sewing whilst thinking about my wardrobe,clothes and putting outfits together. I have been inspired by the posts/vlogs of @handmadebyditsytulip and @shesewsvintage @thestitchsistersuk about enjoying wearing all our clothes, memade and rtw,reposting memades and having fun styling new outfits😊So I am currently sewing a couple of basics to go with other memades,pondering what to sew next and really enjoying putting outfits together from my wardrobe😊Sometimes it feels good to step back and not rush to make all the ideas in my head! 😋😆☺️#simplesewing #slowsewing #sewersofinstagram #indiepatterns #memadeeveryday #ilovesewing #handmadewardrobe #sewmuchfun #imadethis

My @grainlinestudio #lindensweatshirt has been my most worn #memade item on my holiday in Yorkshire. I love this pattern as every fabric produces a different size and style 😋The neckline stays the same, but I love to customise every one I make 😁#grainlinestudio #indiepatterns #memadeeveryday #memadestyle #sweatshirt #handmadewardrobe #imakemyownclothes #holidaywardrobe
#sewphotohop favourite fabric👗✂️✂️I have this beautiful cotton sateen in my stash which I bought impulsively 😋 because I thought the colours were amazing and it would be like wearing an abstract painting 🎨I would love to make a 👗 one day 😊🌈✂️✂️I am drawn to abstract prints or graphic/stylised prints or plains that I can add appliqués and trims too 😋🎀🎀🌈#specialfabric #fabricstash #sewistsofinstagram #dressmakers #colourlovers #colourlover #lovethisfabric @houseofpinheiro
#sewphotohop other hobbies😀I share my travel, dogs, garden on stories😊 My main passion is walking our 🐶🐶, then sewing, gardening, reading and belonging to a book club, travelling, interior design and I really want to get back into knitting 😋I have got two projects for the winter and as I haven’t knitted for a long time thought I’d start with the one that looked the easiest and on the biggest needles! 😂So here goes, starting with a tension square and taking it on my hols very soon 😁🚶‍♀️🚶🏻‍♂️🐶🐶# easy knitting #knittingproject #myhobby #lookingforward tomyhols@houseofpinheiro
#sewphotohop close up/detail 😀Here’s a peak of the detail on my next make 😋✂️✂️#sewmuchfun #sewingdetails #sewingmystyle #sewme #lovesewing #sewistsofinstagram @houseofpinheiro @pinandsew_uk
#sewphotohop past years and looking a lot younger!😋In the past I used to make and sell my free motion embroidered,quirky textile pictures of dogs, mostly in galleries😊My textile business was called dogsinstitches! A name my husband came up with meaning literally stitched dogs and also happy laughing 🐶 I also used to hand paint furniture🎨The French armoire behind was painted by me 😊👩‍🎨@houseofpinheiro #love to make#lovedogs #makersgonnamake #lovesewing
#sewphotohop go to patterns is going to be a recent purchase of @sewpony #womensissiepattern as there are so many options for dresses, tops, necklines, ruffles! Watch this space for lots more 😋😀This is my second dress in beautiful fleece lined (so cosy!😀)neon fleck sweatshirt fabric and frilled rainbow cuffs @sewmesunshine.uk . The frills on the shoulders stand out more in this fabric than my other softer jersey dress, but I think they’re really fun 😋🌈#sewingsunshine #sewponypatterns #womensissiepattern #womensissiedress #indiepatterns #issiepattern #funkycuffs #sewmuchfun #sewistsofinstram #memadeeveryday #handmadewardrobe #sewover50 #ilovesewing #memadewardrobe

#sewphotohop Day 15 What was I thinking! Can’t believe I’m sharing this🙈Last year I bought 1m of faux gold leather and had a mad 💡to make a pinafore, thinking it would be cool (not cool!) mutton dressed as lamb! 😂So I pattern hacked Tilly’s Coco dress, added a zip(went in well ) , lowered the armholes, seamed and topstitched the front, lined in poly lining(yuk, clingy!)tried on and then reality hit hard 😲 what was I thinking ! 🙈😂It’s in the chuck it basket, should I make it into a skirt or leave it for fancy dress! 🙈🤪@houseofpinheiro #madmoment #sewingdisaster #youngatheart #sewover50 #fashiondisaster
