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?
Having full control over a garment is amazing, but it’s so easy to second-guess yourself too. Take this top for instance. I’m rather pleased with the plaid matching I accomplished throughout, but I almost feel like matching the shoulder piece was a missed opportunity. Though, I can’t decide what I should have done instead 🤔 ⠀ ⠀ Finishing up this beauty this weekend, then on to the next gingham! What are you working on this weekend?⠀ ⠀ #sewingblogger #makersgonnamake #diyfashion #imakemyownclothes #handmadewithjoann #joannfabrics #wunderlabel
