I think this will be my day dress for the #dayandnightdresschallenge The fabric is Liberty and it was picked and gifted to me by my husband (good taste! right?), and I've been saving it for a special project like this one 💜. On that subject, are you sewing your dresses for this challenge?

3rd time I've made this shirt, third time I've had to redesign it. I'm happy to do it, because I LOVE making things others will love. But...
***Rant below feel free to skip***
Recently, I had someone ask why this design is more expensive than the rest of my items. Hinting, that I'm just raising the price and charging too much because I can.
Most of my designs are between 20-40 pieces. This one? 102. Most are fairly light on the handstitched details. This one? Extensive.
If you don't want to spend that much on a shirt then don't. Go buy a cheaper one that someone ironed on, that may or may not crack and peel the first time it's washed. Handmade isn't cheap. Handmade quality, well, you get what you pay for.
I love my job, but you have to realize, withthe time it takes to make some of these, I'm charging $1-2 an hour or less. Would you put in 12+ hours of work for that pay? I will, because it makes people happy, but don't tell me my prices are too high.

Progress on Butterick #b6382 @mccallpatterncompany faux fur jacket/coat. ❤ It's worn over the McCalls Halston wrapdress and the color contrast is striking. The lining was constructed by superimposing a white point d'esprit lace over cream lining fabric, basting the two layers together and treating them like a single layer of fabric. All lining seams are finished by french seams. Just have to finish the hems and it's ready to be worn. It doesn't quite have the lightness of the inspiration Armani Prive coat but I am still pleased with this garment. I feel so glamorous... Faux fur @joelandsonfabrics

Up next, scissors fob with cute little sewing charms attached. I love this fob and almost considered keeping it for myself but my hope is that someone will love it as much as I do. Isn’t that what we all want as crafters though? ☺️. #scissors #scissorsfob #scissorsfortheserious #scissorscharm #sewingcharms #sewing #sewersofinstagram #sewers #crafters #craftersofinstagram #scissorsjewelry #etsy #etsyseller #etsysellersofinstagram #etsyshop #etsystore

My new tunic! I'm so excited to wear this today, I just can't stop smiling.
Make no 2 of #makenine2018
Pattern: same as last time, Burda Young 6475
Adjustments: I left the 1" in length that I added to the front piece last time, but took it out of the back (so the back is back to the pattern's original length). I did a forward shoulder adjustment because I noticed the first one likes to choke me a little when I sit down (grading from a 1/4 adjustment at the neck to 1/2 at the shoulders). And just like on the first one, I brought the outer edge of the shoulders in a little (which moves the sleeves up a teensy bit). I made the sleeves two inches longer which was all I could eke out of this fabric (long enough that you can pull them down in your coat as you put it in!). Fabric: a Robert Hoffman mammoth plaid that is kinda like a double gauze? The front is plaid and the back is like lightweight denim? It makes it a LOT thicker than regular fabric. I believe I bought it at @imaginegnats a while ago.
I didn't do French seams since this fabric is bulkier--and a lot of the seams get top-stitched twice so that should keep the raveling from getting too far. I wound up doing three lines of top stitching on the hem (one was sewn twice) to attach the ribbon because I didn't think of it until I'd already sewn the hem down AND the sides of the little plackets. Maybe I'll think ahead on something like that next time! (Yeah right.) Anyway, I'm thrilled with the outcome and now just trying to decide if I want to make one more of these before I do something else. I have a nice summer fabric that would look great in this and it might be nice to add something to next season's wardrobe before that season actually arrives. But I guess we'll see where the inspiration strikes! #burdayoung6475 #sewersofinstagram #craftersofinstagram @redsilvia

I haven't sewn since Christmas, having a little rest as it's always a crazy time of year for me. But in the last couple of days I've got my sewjo back. This is my favorite so far. A knee length, hand dyed circle skirt for my littlest Doodaah. She loves it, twirling around to Disney songs. #sewersofinstagram #tiedye #disney #mermaid #circleskirt #twirling #toddlersofinstagram

Such a rainy day here! Perfect for snuggling on the couch with a movie before we get moving for the day! Have you checked out the new leggings that coordinate with the new Bow back dress??

Feeling the Monstera love! Two of my favourite things combined, plants and fabric 😍

I'm thinking the #kewdress by @ninaleelondon for the Esoterra fabric. I haven't decided on what to make with the other fabric yet, but have seen some gorgeous #kielowrapdress in this fabric, but not sure I have enough fabric (I'm totally ignoring Irish weather and having nowhere to where it for the moment!!!) Hmmmm!!! #monstera #allthefabric #sewersofinstagram #sewcialists @thecraftymastermind #irelandsews
