    Handmade fitted top in linen blend and linen is one of the most ancient fabric known and globally loved for its breathability, perfect for hot weather, strong, durable and great SPF! (ref: @dariaandronescu on YouTube). It’s blended with cotton, so it’s less wrinkly (less ironing) compared to 💯 linen. 🙌🏻✨ Both are natural fibers making it a better choice for our Mother Nature!

    Full Look of 🌊 peplum top, thanks for your patience as I took my time (over 2 weeks) perfecting every step of the garment making and making sure the fit is 💯 right for @yeelynchai

First, she took some measurements and I start my work from there onwards. From toile-making (sample top with custom measurements) before cutting into this beautiful linen blend fabric — all the extra works paid off when you told me that, “It fits well”.👚✨
.
This is the 3rd version I made and it just keeps getting better with each make. I’ve mastered the bra strap loop thread skills, joining the tricky seams, pattern matching, size grading, reinforcing seams, fiddling with those horsehair braid and more. Enjoyed the slow processes of constructing the 🌊 bodice hem that involves meticulous hours of hand sewing! It’s hard work yet it felt so right after the garment is completed, it just fills my heart with so much happiness, hope you can feel this labor of love too! 🥰

I never thought that this day would come, where I’m given the opportunity to dress amazing modern mommies and the fact that you guys would trust me enough to sew for you! I’m still learning along the way and am so grateful for every opportunity that comes my way. Thank you awesome ladies for the opportunities, cheers to many more of flattering and quality handmade clothings that fits you! 🥂✨

    Earlier this week I got a wild hair and decided I just couldn’t live life without a watermelon dress. I came home from the fabric store laid the fabric out and then decided I was insane because everyone would think I was crazy for actually wearing said 🍉 👗. Then about 4 hours later I decided I didn’t care what anyone thought because I knew it would be fun and, hey, you only live once! So here it is!!!! I’m so happy I went ahead and made it. It’s been one of the most fun sewing projects I’ve done 😁 #instabrag #watermelondress #sewing #handmade #v9182 #voguepatterns

    I believe I bought this Vogue #V9182 pattern last year but never came across the right fabric for it until I found this linen blend at Joann’s this spring. I took my time and made a muslin of the bodice which needed a few tweaks and if I make it again I’ll do a few more adjustments. Did I mention it has pockets? Nice big inseam pockets. ..........
I didn’t even think about trying to do any pattern matching as the bodice has princess seams and I only had 4 yards of fabric, I had to move furniture to get the full piece laid out to make sure the skirt pieces would fit. I would guess from start (pattern cutting, bodice fitting) to end (hand stitching the buttons) this dress took 20 hours. ..........
For those of you that saw my instagram story about the cost of handmade clothing this is the dress I was referring to, the $525 dress. 
For those that didn’t see it, here’s a quick explanation - I’m often told I should make and sell clothing and I say no, no one would pay my prices. This dress took almost 20 hours to make, if I only charged the current minimum wage, plus cost of materials and a typical retail markup this dress would cost $525.

    Finally finished 😊 hemming this baby was no joke🖐🏾 I struggled through to finish this dress. For some reason, just when I thought the buttonholes would be perfect my machine decided that one would not be. I u picked it 3 times and re did it but still didn’t get it 💯. Sigh buttonhole, why why why??? Anyway I got to the point where I decided it was good enough and had to stay. Sewing teaches me it’s great to strive for perfection, but if you fall short that’s ok too. After all there is only so many times I could unpick this fabric before I had nothing left🤷🏾‍♀️ #memade #imadethis #sewingmywardrobe #isew #sewist #voguepatterns #v9182

    Le #eaxixdiy #memademay2019 Day 14 — Feeling fancy in my latest make: Wavy Peplum Top hacked from the brilliant @mccallpatterncompany @simplicity_creative_group @carlosvoguepatterns #v9182 Dress pattern. The fit was spot on fitted on the waistline then flares out like nobody’s business to cover tummy, but in a dressy way. 😋 I never thought I’d love this type of tops but I did. It’s the perfect summery happy top! Suits most body types too! 🌞 🍹 🌺
Shorts: RTW high waisted denim shorts

    Finally finished this linen #jessicadress after a lot of buttonhole wrangling with the machine. The patch pockets made it the perfect pattern to play with decorative stitches and variegated thread, which I did on the hem, too. It did trap me into a peculiar length tho 😂 Lesson learned. I interfaced the pockets so they wouldn’t get too droopy from the weight of my phone and I’m glad I did. I’m going to set the Jessica aside for my next button-up summer dress and try the #V9182 . I have so much linen to get through and this pattern gave me some headaches. I’ll probably try it again - but as printed. I didn’t want the top to be too boxy so I dickied with it to fit my boobs better and if I make another it’ll be to purposely have a looser silhouette. Summer is coming, y’all, and down here Summer does not mess around. #sophmoresewist #linenlineneverywhere

    Whenever I feel too chaotic, taking on a sewing task start to finish settles my mind, even if it means doing crazy things like flying Sydney to Melbourne with a 3 y/o, taking off to @spotlightstores 20 mins before close and starting at 10pm to finish at 2am. The hem needs work because I don’t have my dressmakers mannequin here, and I have to fiddle with the buttons some more. But all in all, I love this Autumnal number. I put it on this morning, changed briefly to teach class and have worn it to tech run at @melbcomedyfestival and am now out for the evening in it. This rayon is so soft and floaty it feels like a dream.

    LATEST MEMADE FOR MYSELF but I have no places to wear this though. 😆
.
To me, this #v9182 @mccallpatterncompany @simplicity_creative_group pattern was made popular by @byluciagrace and @emilyhallmandesigns . I dived in to sew this top (instead of a dress because I hardly wear dresses) after repeatedly seeing good reviews regarding this pattern. I learnt a lot from making this, I shall make more front button closure garments soon after this.
.
My proudest part would be the floral pattern matching on the top part of this top. I’m still a newbie in pattern matching and the fact that it matched makes me wanna celebrate with 🥂🎇😆
.
I added the horsehair braid for some drama and it’s definitely something I shy from nowadays. It’s weird when I like to make dramatic stuffs but really, the most repeated item in my memade wardrobe is the most minimalist designs. Sometimes, I just wanna try new stuffs and practice more of my sewing. Do you get what I mean? 😆
.
Adding this to my memade wardrobe, check this #eaxixdiy for my other makes! Have a nice day everyone! ❤️

    CLOSE UP DETAILS
1st time sewing with horsehair braid (it magically transformed a casual top into a more sophisticated style). The pattern was the ever popular #v9182 dress that I shortened to become a flowy peplum fitted top with front button closure. What do you think of this top? A lil throwback story, I bought this fabric on my first fabric shopping with my cousin from many years ago, when I have no idea how to sew any garments. 😂 Sadly I don’t wear such flowery clothing so much nowadays, so don’t ask me when will I ever wear this out. 😆 I like sewing but not necessarily wear it out. No wonder I still feel like I have nothing to wear. Guilty as charged. #makersgonnamake #isewmyclothes #sewcialists #eaxixdiy #voguepatterns #mccallspatterncompany #mccallspatterns

    Scratching head what to do with this beautiful but tiny piece of cotton poplin:
60cm (width 112cm) from @spotlightstores.
.
Let’s be real, it’s impossible I can squeeze this top out. Just thought that this print kinda works for this pattern. 🏝🌿🍹

    IT’S ALL IN THE DETAILS - - -
•
I had just enough fabric to make this #voguepatterns dress, and was committed to using my stash to make it happen...
•
But the only compatible buttons I had were tiny and black. So instead of using 10 larger buttons the pattern suggested, I used 22 smaller buttons.
•
I chose to balance the dark line of buttons by using contrasting thread to sew them on. And created a button placket so that I could embed the rick rack in a seam ... All to accentuate the printed design in the fabric .
•
This project includes a kind of #phantomthread (in that I made it as a gift to myself for my 44th birthday).

    A few days ago, @byluciagrace, an avid sewist, posted pictures of a dress she just completed with our fabrics!! How gorgeous is the gown she created?!?

Every few weeks or so, we intend to feature talented sewists who have created their very own garments with their own unique taste & style with our quality fabrics. We are super excited to see what other talented #sewists create!  STAY TUNED!!

The Carolina Herrera woman embodies elegance  and grace...I felt all that and more while wearing my version of her black and white  gingham ballgown. And what better garment to be wearing as I share an exciting news with the Instagram Sewing Community? 
I was absolutely thrilled when I was invited by @fabricsandfabrics after I first posted about this dress a month ago to collaborate on future projects.  A-M-A-Z-I-N-G! They are a purveyor of luxury and designer fabrics in New York City and has become one of my favorite places to shop for fabrics since I discovered them a few months ago. I love their selection of fine fabrics as well as their friendly and personalized service;  It's an intimate setting but never intimidating,  and I have a difficult time choosing amongst so many beautiful fabrics.  Thank you for trusting me with your fabulous fabrics and I cannot wait to share our projects with everyone!

Fabrics & Fabrics will also be featuring talented sewists from around the globe in Sewcialite Spotlights to bring their gorgeous fabrics to life so stay tuned to see their creations!

N.B. All fabrics I feature from Fabrics & Fabrics are purchased by myself unless unspecified as Collaboration.

    A few days ago, @byluciagrace, an avid sewist, posted pictures of a dress she just completed with our fabrics!! How gorgeous is the gown she created?!? As you will read below in her own words, we also wanted to take this opportunity to announce the official launch of the Fabrics & Fabrics Sewcialite Spotlight features!!!! Every few weeks or so, we intend to feature talented sewists who have created their very own garments with their own unique taste & style with our quality fabrics. We are super excited to see what other talented #sewists create!  STAY TUNED!!

The Carolina Herrera woman embodies elegance  and grace...I felt all that and more while wearing my version of her black and white  gingham ballgown. And what better garment to be wearing as I share an exciting news with the Instagram Sewing Community? 
I was absolutely thrilled when I was invited by @fabricsandfabrics after I first posted about this dress a month ago to collaborate on future projects.  A-M-A-Z-I-N-G! They are a purveyor of luxury and designer fabrics in New York City and has become one of my favorite places to shop for fabrics since I discovered them a few months ago. I love their selection of fine fabrics as well as their friendly and personalized service;  It's an intimate setting but never intimidating,  and I have a difficult time choosing amongst so many beautiful fabrics.  Thank you for trusting me with your fabulous fabrics and I cannot wait to share our projects with everyone!

Fabrics & Fabrics will also be featuring talented sewists from around the globe in Sewcialite Spotlights to bring their gorgeous fabrics to life so stay tuned to see their creations!

N.B. All fabrics I feature from Fabrics & Fabrics are purchased by myself unless unspecified as Collaboration.

Bodice - McCalls #6838 @mccallpatterncompany
Skirt - Vogue #v9182
Bodice bow and over skirt/train - Self drafted

    Vintage floral bedsheet ➡️ #v9182 dress! I added extra buttons (17 in all 😅) and lined it with some yellow plaid fabric from my fabric stash 🌼💛 #voguepatterns

    Kicking off a new week of projects with the most time consuming make. (That's a lot of gingham to match, you guys!) Also, the skirt on this pattern is a full circle skirt and one of the recommended fabrics is gingham, so I'm feeling pretty good that this was meant to be. 😍😍 #gingham #alreadycrossedeyed

    As much as I love bright, happy colors, I will always go back to a classic for summer: white linen. It may not be as photogenic as a colorful print or as eye catching as gingham (hence the flowers to get your attention 😂💐), but there's an elegance to its simplicity. And it's so delicate and chic. On the flip side, one does have to watch themselves while enjoying a meal. 😂😄👍💛😵 This dress, Vogue 9182, and its photogenic gingham sister are both on the blog now. #v9182 #voguepatterns #isew #sewingproject #whitelinen #handmadewardrobe #summerdresses #sewingblogger

    Near the finish line with the red gingham dress! Took some time and patience to match the bodice princess seams, which is why it didn't get finished in time for the Nashville trip last week. But, here we are: buttons, buttonholes, hand sewing the lining around the waistline, and a grosgrain ribbon waist stay, and she'll be ready to go. This is Vogue 9182, and there will be at least one more. It's a good one, guys. 😍😍 #nearthefinishline #v9182 #voguepatterns #gingham #summerdress #buttons #details #isew #memade

    I believe I bought this Vogue #V9182 pattern last year but never came across the right fabric for it until I found this linen blend at Joann’s this spring. I took my time and made a muslin of the bodice which needed a few tweaks and if I make it again I’ll do a few more adjustments. Did I mention it has pockets? Nice big inseam pockets. ..........
I didn’t even think about trying to do any pattern matching as the bodice has princess seams and I only had 4 yards of fabric, I had to move furniture to get the full piece laid out to make sure the skirt pieces would fit. I would guess from start (pattern cutting, bodice fitting) to end (hand stitching the buttons) this dress took 20 hours. ..........
For those of you that saw my instagram story about the cost of handmade clothing this is the dress I was referring to, the $525 dress. 
For those that didn’t see it, here’s a quick explanation - I’m often told I should make and sell clothing and I say no, no one would pay my prices. This dress took almost 20 hours to make, if I only charged the current minimum wage, plus cost of materials and a typical retail markup this dress would cost $525.
