I made this adorable 🌸Louis Hoodie by ki-ba-doo🌸 for my best friend’s son. It was such a quick and easy sewing project (skill level: advanced beginner). Sewing pattern review on the blog (link in profile!).

Ok y’all, only three weeks late... That’s not so bad, right? My top 9 of 2017!
It’s great to have a sweeping view of what my most popular makes were last year. I love the variety and that every post is a different garment, but 7 out of 9 are dresses or skirts, so it’s probably best for me to branch out a bit more in 2018 πŸ˜‹ I’m not really one for making sewing goals (I legit made 0/9 of my #makenine2017, anyone else fall into this category?), so let’s just say... I’ll make at least one pair of pants this year!

Have you checked out the Eco fabrics over at @crissxcustoms yet? I made this dress with their yak and bamboo - I'm in some serious love! 😍 The gorgeous steel blue 310gsm bamboo is 68% bamboo, 27% organic cotton with 5% Lycra - its thick and structured and stretchy... oh my! The yak is 88% organic cotton and 12 yak%. It's a great insulator - my next project is a lined jacket and I'm about to get that much more jealous of my daughter's closet πŸ˜‚
‼️Best part - these are not preorder, they can ship now! While quantities last, so don't delay 😊 #crissx #ecofabric #bamboo #yak #alleycats #minimartha #milchmonster #milchmonsterminimartha #dress #cowl #europattern #indiepatterns #handmade #madeincanada #handmadefashion #toddlerstyle #ottawa #otthandmade #ottawasews #sew #littlesews #littlesewsottawa #sewing #sewingforkids #sewingfortoddlers #customorder #sewingforgirls #availablenow

This #roscoedress in a metallic @riflepaperco astrology print is the dress of my dreams. Even though I managed to do the neckline completely wrong and this is definitely quilting cotton, not dress fabric, it still looks preposterously good. I’ve only made this and a few Ogden camis, but I’m forever impressed by how thoughtful the @truebias patterns are.

Working on my #2018makenine has me wondering if I should increase my goal a little. I’ve made five things in January alone! Maybe I should start a #2018makesixty ? πŸ˜‚
.
Jk Pretty sure those #birkinflares will take me the next 11 months because making jeans scares me. 😱 .

How is this for lean manufacturing? πŸ™Œ
Used every little bit of this fabric from the stash βœ‚οΈ
I had to split the front in two pieces at the dart as otherwise it wouldn't fit in my fabric length ⭐️it was this or shorten the length which I really didn't want to do ☺️ this fabric is sheer and I'm planning to make a shorter underdress to go with it πŸ’•

Finally made something for myself #cleodress in denim I got from my hubby for Christmas. I wore it yesterday paired with #brigittetop, aah so comfy!
Hoping to be sewing in my own sewing room in couple of weeks πŸ’ƒπŸ’ƒπŸ’ƒ

One of my resolutions this year is to give fast fashion a miss and make my own wardrobe. It’s pretty shocking how much of our clothes are no longer worth recycling due to cheap fabrics and bad workmanship resulting them in landfills to waste away.
On a positive note, it’s rewarding to spend some time giving material the respect it deserves by doing simple things like proper seam finishing. *proud*

Just look at these proud sewists who had just finished their #sewhouse7 #toastersweater in class!

First attempt at the #watsonbra using glittery jersey leftover from my NYE dress. My elastic application is wonky and I nearly threw my machine out the window trying to sew the power net BUT I MADE A BRA! I used @handmadebycarolyn ’s tutorial to get hidden seams and the guts are GORGEOUS. It’s hilariously enormous and goes uncomfortably high at the armpit so I’m going to pick it apart to reuse some of the materials and give it another go πŸ’ͺ#2018makenine I’m coming for you!!

I am very excited to add the bag making collection to our shop from the esteemed British haberdashery, @merchantandmills!

Our shop is stocked with patterns, kits, notions, and even a couple of fabrics that work very well to create your own waxed backpack, tote or bucket bag πŸ™Œ Check out the shop and blog for more details. Link in profile ⬆️

It ain’t all glitz and glamour! This week has been all about prepping the next Charm Pattern for digitizing, grading, and testing. This means lots of tracing by hand, which is pretty tedious and painstaking. I don’t want to give too much away, but I will say that the next pattern is one of my more ambitious projects to date, and it’s all about versatility and options. I can’t wait to show it to you! #charmpatterns #charmpatternsbygertie #patternmaking #indiepatterns
