Hello! I was wondering if you would share with us your experience with and where you learned how to draft patterns. 🙂
I sure wish you would teach how to make a block. 🇺🇸
Would love to see your padded jacket
Looking forward to what you make, which I know will be stunning. Love the yellow fabric, it is gorgeous 🤗🤗🤗
Hi, love this teaser of a video. Would be lovely to see your making of the patterns too. I dabble in the pattern work and find it so rewarding. Looking forward to seeing the results. Best of luck with the works on your house.
I love your videos concerning the upcoming projects. I have been wanting to make a quilted jacket for sometime and I get to see your version first, which is exciting.
The trench dress is lovely idea for a project. I had a trench dress with long sleeves and it was worn frequently.
Roman shades are very nice and functional.
Thank you for sharing. Have a nice rest of the weekend!
Great plans! Any plans to make a video on the Roman Blinds?
These types of videos are great for checking out the workings of another sewist’s mind. I like to know how other people put fabric and patterns together.. thank you as always for your interesting and informative videos and for your time in doing them. 🌹🌹
Great ideas love them all. To soften fabric Peggy Segars recommends washing fabric in Coca Cola !!!! And it works too 😀😂😂 also check out Jacket ideas on Alex of Bohemia her designs are fantastic she’s AMAZING 🤩
Love the border print for the jacket.
I love all your videos. I am way behind but will soon catch back up. I really love all the patterns and fabrics that you picked out, those are all very beautiful 😍
I would really miss my sewing room if I didn't have it set up. I am in it all the time. I love seeing how you do things. I love creating my own patterns and when I watch your videos, I feel such a connection. I don't mind using some patterns, but the style is often marred by the added ease that can really make it hard to figure out the design. I am finally to the point where most of my blocks fit and are reusable without a lot of added fitting or changes to the fit. You just always add that extra boost of inspiration and commitment. Thanks for sharing. You make it look easy.
Your plans sound fabulous! I love the Broderie Anglaise in the yellow. Unfortunately, shipping from Ireland to the US is so much, I can't really purchase from Beyond The Pink Door, but I certainly love their fabrics! Can't wait to see the fi dished garments!
I just enjoy your videos very much🌸. One question: Do you have a standard amount of fabric that you buy when you like a fabric but have no definite plan for it? I often see fabrics that I like but am unsure what is a good amount to purchase that would cover most clothing projects once inspiration strikes. Thanks !
Wonderful fabrics and plans! Hop all goes well with the renovations 🤗
I love this type of video from you! It’s like a teaser! I can’t wait for the making of videos. Happy sewing 🪡 🧵
Can’t wait to see your new designs. X
love Roman shades! either of the fabrics for the jacket are great! I love the challenge of thinking through the design elements. This fall, this fall, I will get back I to sewing garments.
Great ideas, love your makes always.
I am a quilter and garment sewer. In regards to your quilted jacket a few things came to mind. The cotton wadding is likely to shrink anywhere from 5-15% once washed. With this in mind quilting and washing prior to garment making is advised so fit is not affected. You could use a cotton lawn as the lining fabric to keep it lightweight. I would sandwich the three layers together and quilt (using a walking foot or dual feed system if your machine has one). When sandwiching the layers every layer needs to be smooth as possible, lengthen your stitches for quilting. Serge around the edges, wash and dry as you normally would your garments. This will ensure any shrinkage has occurred before you cut out the jacket pattern pieces. Please be aware that you will get an "aged" appearance to the quilting as the wadding shrinks more than the fabric will, regardless of the distance between the quilting lines.
cheers from Australia xxxxxxx
As a quilter of many years, I would make a 10” square using the cotton wadding and wash it several times as you may find it always looks ‘crinkled’ after washes. I personally would try the same technique with some polyester wadding to see which you prefer in the long run.
Just a thought. Like the first dress very much and I’d keep the flaps! Lol
Lovely ideas as usual.
I would love to see how you make that white dress (4:05 minute) – such beautiful design.
I like the videos really. All the fabrics are pretty, I cant wait to see the garments you will make. Blessings
You are such an inspiration! Well done on your videos!
Looking forward to your upcoming makes and good luck with the work in the house and garden 😀 👍
I so sympathize with you feeling bereft if you cannot sew for a while! It's so hard! 😢 But when we can't sew, we can always plan and fantasize and design our next makes! I hope your building works are completed soon, and very much look forward to seeing the finished garments in due course 👍
Love these chatty videos as well as the “making” ones. Looking forward to whatever comes next.🇦🇺🦘
I watch the Silhoette pattern videos, the women puts the contents of a can of regular coco cola in washing mashine which helps soften jeans . Might hace the same effect with the upholstery fabric!
I put 3 or 4 tennis balls in with material that I want to soften. I also Put them in the dryer with the material too. Love your work!
Oh goodness “Backup Fabric” looks amazing! Imagine the trim used for the cuffs,can’t wait to see this quilted and finished 😍
Hello ! I would keep the border of the last fabric vertically on the front of the quilted jacket and maybe on the middle of the back too, instead of the traditional way of keeping at the bottom, just an idea that popped up in my mind 😀 thank you so much for your lovely videos, I really enjoy watching your way in clarifying sewing as I share with you this beautiful hobby .
Bendiciones hermosa Celina que Dios te cuided donde quiera que vom.monster encantan tus videos.
I love your dresses you are so versatile and skilled!
Can’t wait to see your quilted jacket, I’ve just bought the Hovea jacket pattern by Megan Nielsen, Sewing Bee definitely sets our imagination in motion! Highly recommend Esme Young’s autobiography too, I finished it in a day x
