    Want a Statement Summer Top that turn heads? Look this way please. This the latest yet improved version!
CUSTOM MADE top with close fit for a stylish mama — the front button feature is perfect for #bfmommy and the sassy peplum hides post-baby-tummy said the mommy herself! Goes well with high waisted jeans or shorts for casual look or pencil skirt for a more formal event.
.
❤️ Thank you so much Daphne for another chance to sew for you and I’m still over the moon with your eyes for details feedback, you made my day and fuels my creativity and sewing journey. It’s always nice to talk to you! Hopefully your baby gets well soon! Xo ❤️
.
Postpartum clothing doesn’t have to be boring, loose and ill fitting anymore! You’re free to enjoy close fitted garments comfortably with garments made to your measurements!
Sewing empowers me to create flattering garments that fit to our bodies, not the other way round that’s usually the case with the ready-to-wear catered for mass market.
.
Get in touch via DM for this custom made top just for you. Currently making another one of this in linen blend for a #ladybossmom in a cool summer print — I’ve been hoarding that fabric for sometime and now is the time for it to SHINE! 🌿🍃🌵

    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?!? 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.

    Spent the past few days toileing the #v9182 bodice to a point were I was happy to make a wearable toile. Im happy with the fit, but can see a few improvements so  will probably sew another before cutting into the fabric I planned for this pattern. #sewing #summerdress #gingham

Top #v9182 posts

    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
