This is a long overdue post... Welcome to my all-in-one sewing room, dress room and office! I spend a lot of my time making garments, writing my blog posts + online shopping and planning my outfits!
I thought it would only be fitting to wear a me-made dress along with my Deer Arrow sewing machine brooch that Renee gifted me recently!
The gingham matching gypsy top and skirt set on the mannequin is also something I have sewn, I made Harlow one too and plan on making Renee one in the next month or so!
Brooch: Deer Arrow
Some of my vintage and reproduction patterns... I just keep buying them.
Standing in front of the computer desk and waving to you all, well... I was really just waving to myself at the time haha.
This dress was made with the Butterick B5882 pattern... It was quite a challenging pattern with the pleated bust inserts, however, once I got past that it all came together and I'm quite pleased with the end result. I would love to try it again!
Wardrobes make good backgrounds and my Fitbit that I'm always wearing!
My Precious shoes that I like to change around on the shelf, I also like to put a different outfit on the mannequin each week or fortnight when I am not working on a project.
Vintage purses, Sun Jellies and more shoes...
I am currently working on a gypsy top with pom poms!
I made Barbie a matching dress last year that was featured in The Hell Bunny Rag magazine, see the post here!
She stands next to some of my vintage fashion and sewing books.
Ric-Rac, trimmings and random tins for storing them in (which I intend to cover some with scrap fabric).
I do store a lot of my clothes in my bedroom wardrobe but like to keep particular ones in this room. There are quite a few me-made outfits that I never get around to posting about but I will get them on the blog soon. I hope this was somewhat interesting as I always enjoy room tours by other bloggers. Maybe I will do a video at some point too.
