Realised I totally forgot to share this dress I made for a wedding in June! #madeformermaids#mamacatherine with lined lace yolk and flounce sleeves. Loved it, it was so comfortable and pretty too! Must make more...... 😀😍 Incidentally, I made the bag too 😀😉
Cheers to the weekend—amiright? . I’m sure all my true watermelon lovers know this but today is #NationalWatermelonDay! I’m sipping on their Watermelon @drysoda Sparkling with some tequila (which is a natural probiotic—did you know that?) and a splash of kombucha in the middle of my evening. . The hubs took one sip of the soda and understood why I’m such a fan of it—it’s tastes like legit watermelon and NOT watermelon flavor! . Did you celebrate with some 🍉 🍉 today?
It's been a while, IG. So much has transpired including running for a state legislature seat. (You can follow my @asiazandersforhousedistrict19 about that.) I've sewn quite a few things since then. Pants, tops, a couple bags, but that's going to have to wait.
I made the @madeformermaids#mamacatherine in a nice DBP I purchased from @lafinchfabrics . I actually made an identical top in the navy colorway as well. Super gorgeous! I'm standing with the amazing @stephanyrose4co who is running for Congress in Colorado's 5th Congressional District. Ballots started going out last week. Make sure you send them in by June 26th!
I'm a day behind for #SSEMeMadeMay Day 12 "Hacks" I love hacks... A lot. There's a running joke among my coworkers that I'm incapable of sewing a pattern per the actual instruction. It may be true. This is the @madeformermaids#mamacatherine. I hacked it to be a tank top and added a placket.
everybody posted their #2018makenine in January, but here’s my aspirational nine for the summer. I have at least three for Alice, too. (I already made nine garments for me and two for Alice this year!)
#makermarch2018 day twenty six #pdfpattern all the way!! There’s my bucket of AO originals. I don’t sew the big four, I’m an #indiepatterns loyalist. Primarily because they’re just BETTER. I’m not wasting my time sewing something that despite making to my measurements comes out four sizes too big. And wonky. I also love to #shopsmallbusiness and when you buy from the indies, you’re supporting a dream and a family. Giving me all the feels ♥️. I prefer my patterns visible at a glance on my Mac. I do however buy printed Indie packet patterns when i get the chance at my favorite shops, because they’re small business too. My top is the #mamacatherine by the way. I did it in ponte and flannel. #makersgonnamake#makeallthethings#sewing#sewistsofinstagram
I made a top!! I started this last night and at 1 am I had to call it and woke up this morning and finished it so I could wear to our family’s Thanksgiving dinner. Pattern is #mamacatherine by @madeformermaids and fabric from @joann_stores!
