There is so much inspiration around at the moment, its hard not to get excited about what to make first!!
Allow me to share a few pieces I have my magpie gaze firmly attached on- and today I'm talking skirts:
This beauty of a skirt is from a super sweet haberdashery in Moseley, Birmingham Guthrie and Ghani, a husband and wife company with a love of all things creative. This image is from their 'makers gallery' and has been constructed using the most awesome polka dot cotton canvas, also sold in their store. I love the silhouette of this skirt and its play on the classic pencil skirt, such a cute design can be styled up for evenings or relaxed for a softer day time look.
This scalloped edge, high waisted circle skirt pattern is from unique self taught dress maker Chie Duncan. Her stunning collection of hand made garments include a bridal range, all designed with a feminine and girly edge, with a modern touch. This skirt pattern is available on her blog page, and has a step by step tutorial for construction.
A hot spot for sewing inspiration is, of course, Pinterest! I have assembled a board dedicated to my findings, regarding items to create! Here are a few on top of the list:
And currently on the sewing table...
The Miette! From Tilly and the Buttons
This skirt is such a great piece to make, you can purchase the pattern in traditional paper form or as a PDF, straight to your screen (and printer!). The site offers A step by step guide, with detailed instructional photographs- so helpful! And Tilly herself is on stand by via email if you get a little muddled. That said, this pattern is great for beginners as it is a fairly straight forward shape requiring no additional fastenings. I have just cut out the fabric for my toile and the pattern and instructions are a dream to follow so far.
Do you have any projects on the horizon, do you have that 'back to school' feeling? If only Woolies was still around, I could really do with a new pencil case... Note book... Bag... Pens..........
