All entries

I have never been any good at drawing, but with the croquis on the #BHLsewingplanner it gets easier! These dresses have been on my mind and now I can visualise them 😀So here they are! 👗 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 1. A raglan bodice with twist neck collar and keyhole, wide cuff on a bishop sleeve and big skirt. The dress can be made in lightweight fabric such as chiffon, viscose or crepe fabric. The bodice might resemble the Rosemary blouse from @stylearc ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 2. #BHLGeorgia bodice from @byhandlondon with (boob) collar, button closed halter straps, waistband and a circle skirt. This would be made in a cotton fabric and would be great in contrasting fabric. @wearethefabricstore ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #sopbac #sewing #sewcialists #sewists #sewologist  #sewingblogger #handmadewardrobe #memade #søm #syselv #hjemmelaget #hjemmesydd #syblogg #Norwaysews #Trondheimsews

The weather here still hasn't made up its mind and as far as I'm concerned neither have I when it comes to what to make next. One project I'm still mentally preparing for is a chiffon wrap dress using McCall's Pattern M7406. Found it for $2 at @joann_stores and am in anticipation yet fear of working with this beautiful chiffon from @fabricmart. Drafting has proved helpful though in preparing my head for the pattern pieces I want to use as I will be using the sleeves from one design and the dress from another. I can just see myself barefoot, sipping a mimosa from an expensive hotel patio in it, or dancing and letting the air make the bottom flow behind me. Hopefully this imagination and idea can be expressed in the actual product 😅😅😅 @byhandlondon @wearethefabricstore #BHLSewingplanner #diy #sewing #sewingmachine#fabric #tailormade #sewistsofinstagram #chiffon #teal #orange #flowers #drafting #pomegranatesandpieces #pandp #p&pco #mccalls #m7406

    Sadly I can’t see any of the photos in this post. Are they anywhere else?
    They sound great!
