When I encountered #b6556 from @gertie18 's Butterick line while scrolling on the gram and I just had to get it. I ended up making an unintentional muslin before this one but it was all worth it. I have a few more photos on the blog. 📷 @natileemcgruder #butterickpatterns #patternsbygertie #sewcialists #sewersofinstagram #memade #sewing

I'm not at Viva, but if I was to be I'd be wearing the first combination at the pool party. This was my first sewing project that isn't a costume. It's also my second time working with a pattern. I must say that it was challenging especially putting the lining in. It's not perfect, but I am proud of what I accomplished. This project has been so different then all the others I've worked on, it actually was a mindfulness exercise in a way. I never lost patience or felt like giving up like it happened so many times in the past working on costumes. I will try to work again on the sarong to make it fit better. #patternsbygertie @gertie_destash @butterick

#b6556 and my #royalweddingsewalong dress: ohhhhh you nearly ended up in the box of sewing projects that I’m going to work on later but never actually do. 😕 It really was a bit of a disaster from the beginning!
First, I had a fabric in mind to use and then when I went to lay it out, I forgot it had an unfortunate incident in the wash. 😩 So then I found this fabric in my stash- but there was not enough of it, hence the gathered skirt instead. ✂️Pattern: The front notch is troublesome and possibly the way to address it is to trim down the lining piece even more, or remove the notch entirely as I’ve seen some others do. I had to do some adjustments including an enormous sway back, and reducing a lot of gaping around the armholes. ✂️ Construction: it’s very easy to put together, but ohhhh my: way too much hand sewing for me. Don’t get me wrong, I will happily hand sew for days on the perfect dress, but I really had to push myself to finish this one. ✂️ Fabric: this was the most troublesome part. @spotlightstores do some really pretty Sateen border prints, but the problem is if you use the border, the stretch then goes the wrong way. So everything was stretching out down my body which is possibly why I had to do a second sway back, and even the front bodice has stretched out too long after about 5 minutes of wear. 😑

Anyway, it’s pretty and I *might* wear it. I would make it again but in a non stretch fabric, probably removing the notch, and (depending how lazy I’m feeling) some feature topstitching 😆

Finally pulled my spring/summer wardrobe out from under the bed. I forgot how much I love this version of #B6453 that I made.

☀️🌺 Summer sundress I made from some fabric left over from a project I worked on last year. The dress pattern is B6322 from Gertie’s line for Butterick patterns.

I just finished this lovely blouse by @gertie18. I’d like to make another one using the same pattern, but I do have so many different sewing ideas for the spring! Anyway, the pattern is Butterick B6563 and the floral poplin is from the @doughtysonline. #sewing #sewingblog #sewingblogger #blouse #sewingvintage #retro #patternsbygertie #butterick #sewcialist #imadeit #ompelu #ompeluelämää #nähen #sömning #pusero

Cette #ritablouse est une revenante. 👻 Suite à un problème de fermeture éclair, elle s'est retrouvée TROUÉE (voir photo 2) à deux endroits. 😱 J'ai bien failli jeter l'éponge, puis j'ai finalement remplacé la fermeture, réparé les trous et ouf, la voilà sauvée!
Bon, par contre elle est un peu trop ajustée à mon goût, je couperai la prochaine (car prochaine il y aura!) une taille au-dessus! 😬

My completed Rita blouses 😉 Can't wait to rock these cute peasant tops while I'm enjoying some Stray Cats at Viva 🍻
.
I actually have no idea what to expect from my first time going, but everyone has had rave reviews of the Weekend so my HYPE is real 🎉
.
I'm also going to the @gertie18 tea party sewing meet up, so if you're heading there, please hit me up- I'd love to meet you! I don't want to sit there awkwardly wondering wtf is going on and feeling like a loser (I promise I won't bite 😁) But ya- enough typing, back to sewing 🤓 Check my Insta Stories to check out what else I'm making for my trip!

Really want this @mccallpatterncompany dress pattern by @gertie18 but I don’t think I’m skilled enough to be able to make it just yet😭 Although...who says I can’t prepare for the future, right?? 💁🏾‍♀️#sewing #butterick #patternsbygertie #dresses #vintage #retro #vintagestyle #retrostyle #vintagefashion #retrofashion #1950s #1950sstyle #1950sfashion #1960s #1960sstyle #1960sfashion #vintageinspo #blackgirlbloggers #repost

Finished sewing my new dress over the weekend! 🌿 I will blog about it soon but I'm really happy with the result and I plan to make it in a cactus print fabric next time 👗✂️ #sewing #memade #sewretro #vintagesewing #1950s #b6322 #butterick #gertie #patternsbygertie #spotlightstores #pinup #janome

Home, sweet home 😍 Absolutely loving the small details that came together in my living room GLOW UP. My friend @mandooooo set up the vision for the upgrade: he's an absolute gem and has such an amazing eye for decor!⠀

Mando also happens to be the graphic designer of the Vintage on Tap logo and buttons! (see the button on the top left of the image 😉)⠀

He and I have been through so much, from (miserably) selling iPads at Apple Retail, to howling with laughter at our local drag bars. One of my best friends here in San Francisco-- he (happily!) forces me out of my shell and encourages me to live life to the fullest. ⠀

Thank you so much for the interior decor help, Mando!!⠀

Today’s outfit: my pattern #b6556 from my line with #Butterick. The skirt is box pleated all around—with pockets of course! #patternsbygertie #gertiebygretchenhirschfabric #ootd @mccallpatterncompany

Utterly obsessed with this fabric. It’s so detailed and adorable! 😍 I matched the cobblestones across seams and added pockets! 🙌

My teaching outfit today was my pattern #b6483. I just love a mandarin collar! #butterick #patternsbygertie #gertiebygretchenhirschfabric #ootd @mccallpatterncompany

I haven’t sewn properly in 3 months and I could definitely tell as I battled with the zip and facing on this simple pattern! This dress (my second b6453) has been sitting half finished on my form for months and my mum asked me this morning if it was an actual dress or a display piece as it had been there every time she’d been over recently. I’ll hopefully get it hemmed in time for summer! Beautiful fabric from @kayes_textiles #b6453 #patternsbygertie #butterick #madebyme #sewcialists #sewing #tropicalbirds #birdfabric

Talented seamstress and badass business woman Gretchen Hirsch sewed these gorg dresses. The purple one paired with my Bonjour Boater is everything. Can’t wait to see the styled pics 😍

So the front of the dress looks fucking bomb. The back is rushing due to the lining. Im not 100% sure how to fix this... #sewingproject #sewing #seamstress #costumedesign #costumers #upcycled #upcycledclothing #diyclothes #sewingproblems #patternsbygertie #b6094

My #Easter #frock :) I used #patternsbygertie #butterickpatterns #B6483 and changed the sleeves using #B5924

This would have been finished weeks ago, except I had the brilliant idea to line it. Yeah, bad idea. Once I was able to try it on with the lining in, I decided it was too bulky and the lining pulled across the shoulders 😑 We wasted so much time with that lining. So, at 9 pm Friday night, I cut the stupid thing out. Finished the hemming, attaching the frogs, and added a snap at the throat. It was a big hit at church 😊

#fabric was purchased from @fabricdotcom and is the #easycarebroadcloth. This fabric is very..... crisp? And really didn't need a lining for it to lay nice.

The finished dress, perfect for Easter. Made from a #vintage sheet, with a 800 thread count white sheet used for pockets and lining (so soft). And this is by far my favorite and most versatile #brooch (#erstwilder). Sweater is #mak, belt is @pinupgirlclothing (duh), purse is #truevintage #vintagestyle #pinupstyle #everydaypinup #imaneasteregg #sewing #madeinaday #b6453 #patternsbygertie

Sometimes I make pretty non-armor stuff too 🤷🏻‍♀️🤣 Dress made by me using a Butterick B6556 pattern by @gertie18 🖤 This pattern was so easy to use and didn’t require me to modify anything except elongate my torso a little 😍

Happy Easter 🐰 (If you celebrate, that is. I don’t, but I do plan on eating a ridiculous amount of jelly beans and Cadbury eggs.) I finished up, not one, but two #ritablouses last night. Both from rayon challis that I made dresses out of recently! You can’t imagine how happy I was when I realized I had enough fabric left. 🙃 I did the flutter sleeve version for both, which I think turned out really cute, and also had me swearing a lot less, since I didn’t have to feed elastic through the arm holes!

Ok, pattern chosen! I'll be making this dress to test and review the polka dot chiffon from @minervacrafts 💛💙 I'll post updates on progress as I go👍

Finally recreated a modcloth dress that I’ve been pining after for years! 🤩 I can’t wait for it to get warm enough to wear this baby outside! Swipe to the left to see the original dress! (it is currently discontinued)
.
Didn’t bother with pattern matching because I’m lazy 😜 and the dress is pretty tight even though I sewed my normal size 😢 I think because the print was printed parallel to the selvages, there is no sideways stretch for this dress (since it was using the lengthwise grain). I have plans to make another B6453 dress using a border print fabric, which will have the same issue. Do you normally size up when using woven border print fabrics?

The pink monstrosity is complete! This is designed to be a wearable muslin for a formal dress I have been plotting for a while. The very lovely boyfriend gave me some very lovely silk for Christmas, and I wanted to make something pretty special from it.
This ludicrous pink satin is not that fabric. It was a trial fabric to establish a) whether my harebrained scheme to stick a #patternsbygertie #b5814 bodice onto a self-drafted maxi skirt would work, and to learn a few tricks for working with light, slippy fabrics while I was at it. Still not sure whether this counts as wearable or not, but it certainly was fun to make.

Newest #b6453 in progress. Oddly enough, I already had this cut (it’s been a while) when I saw a blogger I follow wearing the same sheet made into the same pattern. I debated not making it, but it’s too gorgeous not to go for it. And this sheet was only $4. 😳😁 #spring #vintagesheet #vintagestyle #patternsbygertie #sewing #dressmaking

Current project: Butterick B6094 Pattern by Gertie.
I have decided on the straight dress with a contrasting fold detail on the back. Fabric from #fabricland in Kingston - Aubergine garden.
Aubergine base with white rose pattern.
I went for a big patterned fabric for this dress, I wanted to create a unique garment for the spring/summer occasions.

I never thought I’d get a little person to match outfits with and you bet your ass Im gonna be that kind of mom. (At least while she’s tiny and has no choice in her clothes yet 🤣😂) 22 weeks and blood work, ultrasound measurements and everything was on point and healthy 💪🏼! She’s due July 4th and I can’t wait to use up all of the scraps of fabric I’ve saved from making my own clothes to make her shirts and dresses and bibs!!! #babygirl #3dultrasound #22weekspregnant #veganpregnancy #healthypregnancy #indisbelief #sewing #babyclothes #babykimono #summerbaby #patternsbygertie #sewersofinstagram #vegansofinstagram #mommyandmefashion #handmadeclothing #veganbaby
