Blogtoberfest (19) - copycat...

So I am a terrible copycat and ellieboo tends to inspire in these matters.  She prompted my joining blogtoberfest, my participation in KCWC and suggested our KCWC sewalong of the frothy (emmaline).

Yesterday she posted a series of questions with her munchkin. I saw it, realised how many of the answers for her kid were the same as for one of mine and thought I should do it with mine.  So here is The World According to Isabelle:

The eyes have it...

Workhorse Patterns Ione Top

Full disclosure:  this was a pattern a received as a pattern test and it's the first pattern of my co-editor at the Sewcialists (and all round awesome person) Becky .  You might not feel that I would be super objective on this pattern because I love Becky, but she lives on the other side of the world and I still wore this to work today because I LOVE IT. This is the Ione Top from Workhorse Patterns .  This top is version 2: the v-neck.  I left off the sleeve cuff as my pattern is somewhat busy, but I might still go back and add it I think...   It's quite amazing how different this looks in the morning versus the afternoon/early evening light! I really like the curved "hi-low" hem on this top.  It's a really nice shape at the hem. I would also like to call out that this top goes up to a size 32 (US).  That's bloody brilliant .  WELL DONE FRIEND! All the deets: Pattern: Workhorse Patterns Ione Top   (Version 2) Size:  18  Adjustmen

What to wear to a winter wedding?

I recently attended the wedding of a close friend in New Zealand.  If you aren't aware, early August in New Zealand is COLD!  Cue a lot of googling on what to wear to an (outdoor) winter wedding :)  I even made a pinterest board of ideas I also took inspiration from my #SewStyleHero as part of the theme month that was running via The Sewcialists .  You can read about that here . Here is what I came up with: I used a heavy stretch navy sequin ( Pitt Trading ) for the skirt... ...and a soft silvery beige colour stretch velvet (from Tessuti ) for the top. The skirt was self-drafted and designed to be as full and sequiny glorious as the amount of fabric i had would allow.  I will probably cut off the skirt now to make it more wearable in everyday life, though I loved the effect for a fabulous winter wedding. The top is the  Seamwork Astoria  and was a bit of a revelation.  This was my second Seamwork pattern and I really liked it.  I know it's tren

Simple Sew Cocoon Dress

I had this on my Make Nine for 2019 (as yet unblogged/unposted...).  I ended up making it just before the year started - I literally finished it at 3.30pm on New Year's Eve and wore it out that night! There isn't a lot to say on this one.  It's easy to wear (which I once thought I would never say about a dress!) and I really like it. I do wonder whether this colour is right for me - it's a bit dress like a crayon / turn into a full body crayon! My arm is literally the same colour as this dress... I need to press that sleeve better! It has POCKETS, which is always excellent. All the deets: Pattern:  Simple Sew Cocoon Dress (View B) Size: 18 (ish) Adjustments:  Cut a 20, graded to 18 in the hips Added 3" length (1.5" in the bodice and 1.5" in the leg bit) Took some width out of the sides which probably took it back to an 18 all over?  Fabric used:  Canvas look Lyocell in Deep Blush from the Remnant Warehouse Like it?
