I have loved this dress pattern since I first saw it, so happy to have my hands on it. When I picked it up my friend saw it and gasped saying ‘that’s so you!’. Hope to make it well and love it even better than on paper! .

I’m stepping out of my comfort zone this evening and going to my first ever sewing group. I’m a bit nervous about it, but also very excited. My plan is to (finally!) make a Dottie Angel frock/tunic with this fun bicycle print. 🚲 Not sure about the orangey-red for the pockets though. 🤔

My version of the #dottieangel dress (Simplicity 1080a). I cheated and made mine in Jersey fabric from @sweetgingeremporium so I didn't have to faff around with adjusting cotton fabric for a larger bust 😁 Note to self: open eyes for photos 😂

These two little tunic dresses are also the #dottieangel girl’s pattern (Simplicity 8101) with a few modifications to the assembly and fit for my little middle. She only wears dresses (with shorts!) right now, so she’s in need of a few more for summer. (does anyone have a kid that stays in one outfit all day?!?🤦‍♀️) #mamamade #simplicitypatterns #handmadechildhood #sewallthethings

Here’s my preschooler in her #mamamade from yesterday. The head hole is a little too small to easily go over her head, and then it’s a little wide as a neckline once it’s on. 🤷‍♀️ That’s what I get for choosing a super simple pattern instead of one that I know works. Either way, she likes it and can play in it! #dottieangel #sterlingsewn #handmadekids

Even though it’s riddled with errors, and flawed beyond belief, this purse, my Druid bag, is one of my most favorite things I’ve made. I’ve lined it with fabric, added tassels, a zipper, and a rolled strap. I’m very proud of all the hours I’ve put into it. While I want to use this exclusively for cosplay (as my DND character), I may very well up for this to be my everyday bag.

Pockets are almost done bar a little hand stitching on the inside of the facings. I freestyled them in the end because all those pleats were just too fiddly and there must be some problem with the pattern because the facings were far too wide for the top of the pocket. Of course, it could be operator error! 😆
There's no class next week (more exams going on in the room we use), so I shall have no progress to report for a fortnight. 😐

Despite it being half term, my sewing class was on today to make up for a week we had to miss with the room being used for exams.
I did a spot of pocket making this afternoon. Do you ever wish immediately that you'd chosen an easier design? I plumped for some pleated patch pockets with a top band to go on my hacked Top 64 and already the weird pleats are driving me nuts. Three top and three bottom ones. So fiddly! Also, I'm using some wax print cotton which frays like mad. 😩
On the plus side, I got my pattern pieces all laid out, pinned and cut in no time at all. Small victories! 😬

So I wore my usual yarn dyeing outfit to NATURAL DYE class today at @monarchknitting !!! Squeee!! (If you care to know, it’s a #dottieangel pinafore dress from #simplicity8230. Check those handy big O’ pockets peeps! Handy for yarn hauls of #brooklyntweed yarn from your lys and you never know what else could come home In them! 😋) Anyway think I could take the natural dye 🌸🌻💐🍂🌳 workshop a couple more times and come away with new things learned. Was fantastic! . I met the talented owner of @sinceresheep got ALOT of questions answered and have a new follower (it’s a mutual new following ) the beautiful, and SUPER SWEET @unwind.your.mind ! Was a great day. Photo props to my nine year old... #indiesewn#naturaldyeclass#naturaldyes#hippielife#makethriftmend#thathandmadelife#itsanarthingyall#slowfashion

Today is hatching day! It’s all so very exciting, I had to drag myself away from the incubator (in my kitchen) to work in the greenhouse. I’ve made it 10 minutes, I may go back to check now. 😁#homestead #homesteading #simplelife #hatchingeggs #backyardchickens #dottieangelfrock #dottieangel #dresseswithpockets #llbean #llbeanboots #countrylife #foxglovefarmvt

Another #dottieangelfrock this time I made the tunic length version. It is cute with jeans. #dottieangel #sewing #simplicity1080 #handmade #makersgonnamake #memade

It's a long time since I did any dressmaking but I'm quite pleased with this #dottieangel tunic made from two remnants. Might go stash diving to make a dress next!

#memademay #simplicity #dottieangel granny chic dress that I kind of hated so I am still reworking

#dottieangelfrock no.3 completed. My first version was way too big, so I gave it away. The second fit better but still too big. (I wear it camping) Third times the charm. Made with side ties this time. #memade #sewing #dottieangel #handmade #makersgonnamake #simplicity1080

I’ve waited AGES for this pattern to arrive! (@simplicity_creative_group...nearly two weeks). Now that it’s finally arrived, I can get busy putting my dreams into reality. The brown slubby linen is from @fabworksmillshop and purchased specifically for this project. The patch pockets will be one of the two fabrics given to me by the lovely @fraulein_annie. They are fabric samples from a historic home in England 😍. Just need to decide if I want the green or mustard background. #simplicitypatterns #dottieangel #historichomefabric #tunic #sewscottish

Sew, what I've been up to for the last couple weeks is a Spring/Summer capsule (in abnormal color/fabric choices for me) to 1) push myself outside my norms & thoughtfully fill wardrobe gaps while avoiding waste, 2) get ready for 6-7 months of Vegas heat, and 3) use my prodigious fabric stash. For the capsule, I have about 4 more pieces to make. Good progress there. There are also a number of projects/stash fabrics on my cutting table, and one new fabric (hearts ikat from #stonemountainanddaughter) set aside too, for a summer dress. I have thoroughly organized and selected patterns & fabrics for all my spring/summer #stashbuster sewing, and put the rest away. Also, BONUS CAT PHOTO. I have only bought four new pieces of fabric in the last few months - all for specific projects. It's not just mindless clothes-buying that contributes to waste, but also a lack of mindfulness when buying #allthefabric, so I have really focused on that in my own habits. Going to slay my stash, dammit! There is a lot going on all the time around here & I am busy, but I have loved eeking out sewing time in the midst of it all, it is a blessing to make things. [Really bothering me that it looks like the stripes don't match on the skirt. THEY DO, I promise.] #TypeA [ Patterns: #odgencami #truebias x3 - #Simplicity #dottieangel slipdress - self drafted skirt - #seamworkloretta ] #makeyourstash

#mmmay18 day 5. Wearing my favourite #dottieangel dress in a John Lewis reprint (for its anniversary) of a #lucienneday fabric. Spent the day chilling in the sunshine with the kiddies in the paddling pool.

With the autumn chill definitely in the air it is time for more hot tea and even more yarn goodness! Inspired by one of my craft heroes @dottieangel I decided to try a bit of wooly tattooing on my fingerless mitts. It’s so much fun I might start pimping up all my knits! The fingerless mitts are made from snuggly baby alpaca yarn from @creswickwool and stitched using beautifully hand dyed yarn from @fishermansrib 🕯️🍂🌾🍃🌻🐑#woolytattoo #dottieangel #creswickwool #fishermansribyarn #fingerlessmitts #autumn #autumnchill #barrystea #handknit #slowstitching #handdyedyarn #alpacayarn

I don’t have enough #handmade clothes to fully participate in #memademay this year..but I’ll hop in where I can, and continue to build up my wardrobe and my sewing skills.
Today I’m wearing my #dottieangelfrock . I added a little shirring to the back to give it some shape. Good dress for kicking it round home.

Were both thrilled with her new dress ❤️

What was I thinking, I hate sewing fur! But super glad I included it in this dress cuz I think it turned out pretty kick ass! #sewing #shescrafty #octopus #fur #dottieangelfrock #dottieangel

I got tired of cooking stains on my tops, so I decided to try my hand at being a housedress girl.

She needed at least one more dress like this. I’m nearly done with my spring sewing, I think! ❤️

...and after I added some elastic to the neckline.

Oh I love the #dottieangelfrock on my little girl so much! Such a quick easy pattern. She loves it too!

Changed my #dottieangelfrock pockets out for something a little less quirky. Think it looks cute with my boots.

The finished #dottieangel dress! I’m so pleased with this! The pockets are made from a vintage barkcloth napkin, which was part of a set that I bought from the lovely Sarah @lovelettersvintagecaravan The pattern is #simplicity1080 @simplicitynewlook I love how easily it lends itself to adding trims and little extras to make each dress unique and quirky! #grannychic #dottieangelfrock

My finished granny dress. Pockets for gathering eggs, or garden goodies. Was a really easy sew.

Granny dress aka #dottieangelfrock done! Next one I will do the armholes a bit different, but the fit feels good. I really like it, and only slightly worry that people will think I’m a Mennonite.

Ooooo! I do love a new project!!! #dottieangel #dottieangelfrock #grannychic

It’s @sewcraftyshop Design Team package day!!! I was so excited to open this up this morning...I cannot wait to cut into this gorgeous Cotton+Steel fabric and create one of these Dottie Angel dresses for my Spring wardrobe 😍 My package also included a new Dressmaking Journal since mine was full up. I have found the Journal utterly essential in planning, creating and learning from my makes.
And now the BIG question....to pocket, or not to pocket? #sewer #sewing #sew #showcrafty #scdesignteam #scdt #sewcraftyonline #sewcraftydesignteam #dottieangel #simplicity1080 #dressmaker #seamstress #dressingmakingjournal #sewingjournal #sewingblogger #blogger #handmade #handmadeoutfit #memade #memadeoutfit #springwardrobe #makersgonnamake #supporthandmade #supportindie #indiemaker #sewcialists

Finished my first crochet blanket! It’s my new travel blanket for me. I got the brilliant idea and pattern from #dottieangel

I haven’t sewn in forever... Projects have piled up. I didn’t even open my serger that hubby gave me for Christmas until YESTERDAY.... 😑 I think I got my mojo back though! (Well ALMOST!) I used the Dottie Angel slip-dress pattern and it’s soooo comfy! Making a #WearableMuslin is my jam!

I am going to test this baby out at the gym this afternoon. Then reward myself w some new fabric for more shirts! Dresses will happen eventually, but this suits me for now since I am hitting a new 12 week challenge again. Only mods are length (obviously) and lengthened the straps by about 3-4” - and also finished the hem w the serger, but didn’t turn and top stitch it til I figure out why my sewing machine is failing at jersey. 😎

wouldn't it be nice to grow some more at @squamlove i've signed up for the giveaway thanks to @curious.and.coe & as to why i am a w.i.p: there are many becauses but above all that, from experience, as soon as i think i have it all figured out, that i am finally whole and together, something is shattered and i have to start all over again figuring out who i am, what i want to achieve, where i’m going, what my gifts are. we are here on this planet for such a short time and i've only touched the tip of the iceberg; there are infinite lessons to learn. i've grown then fallen, then picked myself up again, i've made good decisions and terrible ones, i've made mistakes and learned to forgive myself and love myself all over again. I've been lost, then found again. i've doubted everything then believed in the MYSTERY. i've ventured onto the dark side of the moon only to discover that i am a chaser of the light, called in fact. it seems like we are always on this path of inner growth and self discovery, shedding layers of skin to reach the heart of hearts. and then...there is the day to day, the constant challenges of life and how we deal with them, the neverending pursuits, the pipe dreams gone awry, the "dreams turned to dust" and how we still keep on keepin' on. we never reach the finish line and if we do it's always with sweat on our foreheads, surrendering to what is being asked of us, yet still whole. my goal is to become a better person, aware, patient, accepting, humble trying to sift the chaff from the golden wheat, to become a better mother, sister, friend, human in the process. i want to contribute in some way to those around me as they struggle through this labyrinth. above all i want to leave this earth white as a swan and that takes time and discipline and a lot of love for the truth. i've been wanting to be part of a squam retreat for as long as i can remember and to meet dottie of all sorts on that glorious lakefront. fingers and toes crossed. #squamwip #giveaway #squam #dieingtowin #lovetgeirwoekshops #natureretreat #dottieangel #sacredheart #sisterhood #artretreat #chasingthelight #whatyouareseekingisseekingyou #iamawip #iamaworkinprogress

Omg you guys, I scored all my most wishlisted @dottieangel patterns at Hobby Lobby today! 😍 I’m so excited to use these to make some summery linen dresses! I couldn’t resist the little girl patterns either, I know what my niece is getting for her bday now!!!!
Im only missing ONE pattern I was hoping for now, the tank - if anyone finds an extra and you want or need one of these, hit me up and we’ll swap! I have an extra unopened pattern of the one on the Top L as well!

Sleepy cat pinwhale corduroy jacket with lemon yellow flannelette lining coming soon (hopefully).
Using the simplicity x dottie angel pattern I bought last year with this fabric in mind. The pattern calls for pre-quilted fabric but nothing was as interesting as these cats ❤️
Going to either sew the two fabrics as one and use binding on the inner seams OR figure out how to properly line the jacket.

First dress finished! I love the French side seams and how the other seams are finished off with bias tape. Not a ragged edge in sight!

The next color scheme. I saw the fabric for the pockets and knew I had to use it somehow 😁 It’s pretty garish, but I love it.
