I do like these themed photo-a-day Instagram challenges, I find they focus my mind on what I need to do sewing-wise. So I joined in with this one, hosted by Wendy Ward and Emma Miles – thank you ladies!
Out of my photos, the one with the most likes goes to Day 15: Nailed It with 44 likes!
Perfectly matched side seam and sleeve seam – boo yeah!!
Some of my favourite themes were:
Day 7: Sew and Style Heroes
I looked up to my Grandma because she was the most creative influence in my childhood, the reason I started sewing. Now she’s not here, I wear one of her rings to remind me of her and her influence on me. As I got older, I discovered designers such as Vivian Westwood, I admire her extraordinary talent and ability to push the boundaries. She reminds me to keep pushing myself to new heights.
Day 25: Sewing Ambitions
To make my wedding dress. This is my main inspiration, though I keep changing my mind how I want the sleeves. Good thing I don’t actually have to make a decision for a couple of years yet! Pic borrowed from Wedding Inspirasi (see the watermark), found on Pinterest.
Day 26: Monochrome
I adore this monochrome butterflies crepe de chine that I bought from Lilies Fabrics at the Sewing For Pleasure show.
Day 30: Next Up
I’m a bit indecisive at the moment. I might finish my skater girl dress or I might make an Arielle skirt (pic borrowed from Tilly and the Buttons) as that’s next on my Mega Maker Challenge. Or I might make another jersey Bettine (blog post to follow soon). Who knows?!
