Working from home today, which means it’s space dress day! 😁😁😁 i drafted this pattern and made the dress in a couple of hours - turns out 4-way stretch lycra makes fitting suuuper easy. no darts! barely any seams! talk about a satisfying make 😊 #memademay#memademay2019#spacedress #🚀

Pink pants for the win 💗💗💗 could this outfit get any better? 😍 gorgeous #peppermintwidelegpants made by @whatlydiamade
pattern was made in collaboration with @peppermintmagazine and can be downloaded for free. just go to the link in my bio to find your way there.
hello!! i made my first successful trousers ever this week! in honour of tying to have personal balance and also #memademay2019 i decided to try @inthefolds ‘s free #peppermintwidelegpants pattern made for @peppermintmagazine in my evenings instead of working✨ i graded between sizes h for the waist and i at the hips and unfortunately the rise was waaaaay off for me on the pattern (i often find this with the plus size versions of things because they are graded from patterns for people with flat tummies not round bellies) but my time as a fit model for @stitcherystudio has taught me that the rise of trousers is everything so i got really nervous and really confident and just went to town cutting a bigger curve into the rise of these trousers and i made it work! i’m so proud! i didn’t take a before photo but they looked like i had a full body w****e and now it’s not *perfect* but super super waaaayyy better! im not great at learning how to do things the ‘right’ way, i really need to get into it and learn by doing and this has been a really fun experience! i’m muuuch more confident about trousers now! these trousers were meant to be a wearable toile but actually i think i’ll wear them loads! they’re made from a medium weight mercerised cotton someone passed down to me and i obviously dyed my favourite colour lol and the top is also second hand and dyed because i am apparently super predictable 🤦♀️ anyways, enjoy me awkwardly holding a p*t of flowers cause i couldn’t think of anything to do with my hands lol 🙈
ps- sorry i like never iron as i sew for myself because i’m lazy so enjoy lots of folds and creases lol

My next make for @minervacrafts blogger network is live! #mcbn i adore this fabric but knew my sister (@freelandhikingco ) would love it more. and doesn’t it look beautiful on her.
i used @elisalex’s wrap skirt tutorial on the @byhandlondon website. i’ve made a few of this pattern and just love it.
i had a fair bit of fabric left over so made a matching #shirtnumber1 from @100actsofsewing.
this fabric was wonderful to work with. sara wore this to my brothers wedding and her hens so it’s already had quite a few awesome outings.

#memademay2019 day 24.
heading out of town today but packing all the memades! wearing this #highlandswrapdress to meet some sweet sewing friends tonight! i made this dress with some bright lime green fabric i found for pennies at an estate sale. i overdyed it with blue @ritdye and it became this amazing muted deep blue with undertones of green. it’s a heavier weight fabric so the weather has to be just right to wear it or i get really hot. guess that’s one way i can be grateful for today’s rainy cooler forecast!
happiest of friday’s, sewing loves!
