Sewing The Rosie - Elegance and Feminity

Sewing The Rosie - Elegance and Feminity

I thought I would share my experience of making the Sew Over it Rosie Dress.  I love this dress and think it looked perfect on my model Sophie. The combination of structured bodice with the linen fabric resulted in a versatile dress that could either be worn to a wedding or to the park on a summer's day.

Mother and Daughter Sewcialisation

Mother and Daughter Sewcialisation

As someone relatively new to sewing I initially presumed it was a lonely hobby, however I have been pleasantly surprised by the community of sewers that exist - online, friends you didn’t know were a dab hand with a sewing machine and new friends I’ve made through classes, workshops and sewing groups. I love nothing more than chatting through a pattern that you’re both making and sharing ideas and tips. I think keeping things as ‘sewcial’ as possible adds to the fun and enjoyment of the overall sewing process, plus you might learn a few things from each other.

Advice for the Advanced Sewist

Advice for the Advanced Sewist

Suddenly you find yourself in a position where you can make a pretty thing or two! You are probably adapting patterns, possibly even pattern making your own, not only to create the perfect garment but also the perfect fit that makes its wearer smile (that's not to say that there won't be the odd failure along the way - that is part of learning right!!). Not only have you gained a new skill, you have gained a new form of escapism and enjoyment. Bring it on!

Find Your Sewing Mojo

Why learn to sew in today’s modern world? Clothes are cheap, readily available and who doesn’t love hitting the shops? It is also a hobby that can have a reputation of being something your Nanna would do! But in this consumer world we live, perhaps striving to make something completely unique, that fits you perfectly and is made from beautiful, high quality fabrics has a certain charm and appeal. Plus if you manage to pull it off, it almost certainly won’t seem nanna-ish.
