AUDREY X DENIM | She’s done! #seamworkaudrey in denim from @wearethefabricstore 💙 
I’ve had a Denim Jacket on the brain for a little while, then I saw some lovely versions (hello @marjoriesews !!) and on a whim last Saturday I started sewing... it’s been a week of stealing a few minutes for topstitching, making welts (🤔) and my boys picking out every button tube @lincraft to help find the right buttons! Mods: I sized down to account for stretch denim, changed collar to a band collar with tab, used buttons instead of Jeans buttons, narrowed the shoulder seam length. I topstitched with a maroon colour to add a more subtle contrast, and to hide any dodgy topstitching 😉 #seweverydaymakes2019 #sewouterwear #denimjacket #sewdenimjackets #seamworkmag #seamworkmakes #thefabricstore #thefabricstorebrisbane #memadeeveryday #ilovetosew Audrey x denim | she’s done! #seamworkaudrey in denim from @wearethefabricstore 💙

fabric is an ambrosial & lovely linen from @wearethefabricstore in the mustard colorway. pattern is the #seamworkalmada robe from @seamwork. only modification is french or flat-felled seams throughout and some creative piecing of the cuffs, ties and bias tape to eke this size l out of 2.2 yards of fabric. #sewing #handmadewardrobe #seamworkmakes #thefabricstore #loungeweargoals #isew #imakemyownclothes #andoccasionallyclothesforotherpeople

There’s a psychiatric condition describing the frenzy involving stripping with wanton abandonment, then flinging on a garment hot off the machine. There’s no effective treatment, but most sufferers pull themselves together shortly after to tend to the mundane, such as snipping threads, a final press and feeding one’s young. Presenting my #seamworkbo , the latest must-have pattern from @seamworkmag , in what possibly is a beautiful vintage linen cotton from #melbrestash2017 ; it has that wonderful musty smell of gentle decay that defies washing (which I adore, it’s akin inhaling pages of an old library book)... thank you anonymous fabric benefactor! I went down one size (it’s very roomy so most can probably go down two) and completely ignored grid-matching. GIMME ALL THE BOXY TOPS OF THE UNIVERSE!!! PS: I love the cuffs. #ootd #seamworkmag #seamworkmakes #boxytop There’s a psychiatric condition describing the frenzy involving stripping with wanton abandonment, then flinging on a garment hot off the machine. there’s no effective treatment, but most sufferers pull themselves together shortly after to tend to the mundane, such as snipping threads, a final press and feeding one’s young. presenting my #seamworkbo , the latest must-have pattern from @seamworkmag , in what possibly is a beautiful vintage linen cotton from #melbrestash2017 ; it has that wonderful musty smell of gentle decay that defies washing (which i adore, it’s akin inhaling pages of an old library book)... thank you anonymous fabric benefactor! i went down one size (it’s very roomy so most can probably go down two) and completely ignored grid-matching. gimme all the boxy tops of the universe!!! ps: i love the cuffs. #ootd #seamworkmag #seamworkmakes #boxytop

I made this hacked #seamworkbo a few months back but thought I’d post another shot of it in honour of #sewtwistsandties. Love the twist a little tie hack adds to the boxy silhouette. .
.
And those aren’t #persephonepants but a RTW lookalike that fit well. I bought them for research purposes (😆) - hoping I can mimic the crotch curve on these to finally crack the fit on my me-made pair. Wish me luck!

Wearing my new Aberdeen evening top - ready to raise a toast 🍸in honour of my fellow sewists and the hosts and sponsors of all the great sewing challenges going on just now! 
I’ve had this @seamworkmag pattern in my stash for ages and even printed it out - but hadn’t got around to sticking it together 🙈! Anyone else ever do things like that? 
The #so50visible challenge (and the need to use a pattern featuring a mature model) got me 🤔, so I ordered this silver sparkle on black metallic jersey from @montreuxfabrics last month to 🎉. This top was an easy make with a V front and back, and the fabric is nice and soft on the inside - so 😀 I finally got around to it! 
By happy coincidence (and thanks to Meg from @cookinandcraftin for her post on Combining Challenges), this is also my entry for:

#sewingpatternsandprints #sewingmetallicmarch hosted by @sewn_on_the_tyne @purplesewingcloud @voiceofacreative 😅 - sure I must have forgotten someone and 😐 if I’ve bored you - still feeling 🤦‍♀️for using one easy make to enter four challenges.

Made a @seamworkmag Addison in Nani IRO “Grace” cotton double gauze in Bright Peach by @itoitonao 🧶 Fabric from @stitchesseattle ✌🏼✌🏼 It was a challenge, but I managed to squeeze all the pieces out of only 1.5 yards of fabric by splitting the back bodice as well as the upper and under collar pieces. Bonus: Using the selvage on the centre back in turn showcased the designer info. 🧵Thanks to the documented trials and warnings of the sewists who came before me, I knew this pattern was going to be roomy. I made it in a usually tiny size 0 and still took 1” off of each of the front/back side pieces to get the armhole opening and bust size to fit properly (for my usually size 2-4 upper body). 🙆🏻‍♀️ The photo I took to document the gap in the arm hole is only a hint at how massive and ill-fitting it was before adjustments. To finish the side seams, I used a combination of sewing machine and serger stitches to keep the facing neat and flat and topped it off with some stitching-in-the-ditch to secure everything. #naniiro #naniirograce #doublegauze #seamworkaddison #seamworkmakes #wearablemuslin #imakemyownclothes #memade #handmadewardrobe #sewcialists #makethriftmend #torontosews #canadasews #bananneappeal Made a @seamworkmag addison in nani iro “grace” cotton double gauze in bright peach by @itoitonao 🧶 fabric from @stitchesseattle ✌🏼✌🏼 it was a challenge, but i managed to squeeze all the pieces out of only 1.5 yards of fabric by splitting the back bodice as well as the upper and under collar pieces. bonus: using the selvage on the centre back in turn showcased the designer info. 🧵thanks to the documented trials and warnings of the sewists who came before me, i knew this pattern was going to be roomy. i made it in a usually tiny size 0 and still took 1” off of each of the front/back side pieces to get the armhole opening and bust size to fit properly (for my usually size 2-4 upper body). 🙆🏻‍♀️ the photo i took to document the gap in the arm hole is only a hint at how massive and ill-fitting it was before adjustments. to finish the side seams, i used a combination of sewing machine and serger stitches to keep the facing neat and flat and topped it off with some stitching-in-the-ditch to secure everything. #naniiro #naniirograce #doublegauze #seamworkaddison #seamworkmakes #wearablemuslin #imakemyownclothes #memade #handmadewardrobe #sewcialists #makethriftmend #torontosews #canadasews #bananneappeal

I love a challenge! Especially when color is involved. I decided to join the #brightsewing party with a burdastyle skirt and my seamwork Astoria sweater. I am dressed to fight winter sadness!

I actually got to sew another garment in the past week. The #seamworkbobby from @seamworkmag in a viscose jersey from the stash. This too was a really pleasant project to work on. You get a really nice finish on the bodice and I finally managed a neat V.

I am just making my sewing journal here today😊
I have noticed that I have only one yellow outfit in my closet and realized that yellow fabric keep catching my eyes every time I go online shopping, so it was time to execute💪🏻
This is my second #seamworkastoria. It was perfect project for late night where you want to sew something, but you don’t want to use too much of brain 🧠 (fabric was already cut)
This fabric has texture one side, so I decide to do texture blocking(Is there such word? 🤷‍♀️Probably not, but you get what I am trying to say. 😂 what can I say, English is my second language, but it doesn’t stop me from sharing my creations. Life is too short 😉)
I made this mostly with serger. I used Wooly Nylon thread for both loopers.
