When you see a “maker” slogan, you have to take a photo, right? Even if it wasn’t about us, I think it works ✂️😜 And see that button placket? You can read about that happy accident over on the @califabrics Cali & Co Blog! Link in profile 👆
Woohoo! I finished something that isn’t part of a costume! 🎉😄⠀ ⠀ On the off chance that you don’t already know this, the Panama Tee from @alinadesignco is the best palette cleanser! Super easy, super quick, and a great fit. I have about a dozen more lined up between bigger projects 😂 #sewingarainbow This one is a soft “suprema” cotton jersey from @stylemakerfabrics (still in stock!) that feels both like an old favorite and a tee that will last for ages. The perfect combo, right?⠀ ⠀ Happy Friday, friends!! 💕
New post! If you’re ready to tackle denim for the first time, check out my list of quick tips for sewing with it, from a newbie’s perspective over on the @califabrics blog (Link in profile 👆)⠀ ⠀ #califabrics #caliblogsquad #bulldenim #landerpants #landershorts #southporttank #sewingblogger #imademyclothes #diywardrobe #rtwfast2018 #summersewing
More gingham! I’m not normally one for ruffles but when I spotted this classic shirting at @joann_stores, it said this is what it wanted to be! I couldn’t argue with such a request 😜⠀ ⠀ But tell me something, friends. This was an easy pattern (and I’ll have a review up in the next few weeks), but I still couldn’t get it done in a day. In fact, it took blocks of time over 4 days to get it finished! 🙈 What are your top tips for being a more efficient sewist, while still enjoying the process and not having the finished garments look rushed? ⠀ #peppermintrufflesleevetop #handmadewithjoann #sewing #imakemyownclothes #rtwfast2018 #makersgonnamake #diywardrobe #indiesewing #summerwardrobe #jennymaker
So, I actually remembered to have my fiancé take a quick photo for #sewmystyle2018, but I blocked my awesome new Landers with my clutch 😆 #oblivious They’re there, I promise, and I love them! And I love my new peplum top too! Despite how much of these shorts it hides, it’s actually a great pairing because when this top takes flight in the wind, I’m still covered underneath 😁 More details on both garments/patterns to come soon! Happy Sunday!!
Nothing sneaky about this peek 😜 I’m so excited to have finally tackled (conquered even?!) my first proper pair of shorts! Bring on the denim, the canvas, the twill, all of it!! 😁 These #landershorts fill a seriously long-standing gap in my wardrobe and complete the first outfit of my mini summer capsule ☀️ Next up, that blue and white gingham top I cut out with the pocket lining for these 💙 What are you sewing this weekend?
