What’s on my sewing table…

I have even less time I can spare for my sewing passion this month. But I’m determined to keep up with my sewing life and blogging about it! :) 

jacket sewing your style

I’m dedicated to finish this jacket for this month. The pattern was published in Burda Style’s August 2012 issue with pattern no. 137. It can also be purchased from here: Shawl Collar Jacket

I really liked this collar style as it allows free movement when wearing a jacket for work. 

I’ve never made a shawl collar before and I really liked the way it looks on the model. We’ll see whether I’ll be able to pose like her when I finish the project :) Considering my 6 feet tall figure, I think I should shorten the waist part a bit.

As I cannot go for a fabric shopping, I have to use something from my fabric stash. So I decided to use this gray lightweight woven fabric with a satin facing that I’ve used for a blouse before. I just adore colorful facings! :)

Although the pattern looks stunning on the model, I suspect that part of is has to do with the tempting blue color of the fabric used. So my fairly modest gray fabric may not be able to show off as I much as I wanted. Thus, I’m thinking about putting a contrast color bias on the shawl collar. We’ll see how it’ll end up :)

Just another red dress? I don’t think so :)

Well, as I have announced couple of days ago, I decided to sew a red dress for the Republic Day celebrations on October 29th. 

I had an eye on the Burda Style’s seamed dress released with August 2012 issue for quite some time and when I decided to sew a red dress, this was the only pattern that came to my mind. (Pattern also sold here separately.)

I believe my version of the dress turned out to be more stylish than the original dress… but I’m having a hard time in saying the same thing for the model… :))

Watch and Learn Grasshopper - No-Pattern Sequin Skirt Tutorial

It’s been quite some time since I added a post in the “Watch and Learn Grasshopper" section. I guess this one would be much more interesting for many fashion and sewing enthusiasts ‘cause it’s a very easy-to-sew project and the best part is, there’s no need for a pattern!

Congratulations! I haven’t seen many blogs that provide such thorough tutorials! Keep up the good work Sensei! By the way, when are you planning to sew and tell about a Chanel jacket? 

_____

Thanks for your comment :)

Let me clarify one thing first: I’m not a Sensei of anyone :) The “grasshopper” in the “Watch and Learn Grasshopper” page is actually myself who is a self-taught and very enthusiastic seamstress :)

I also think that I should sew a Chanel jacket these days, but I have couple of other sewing projects in mind before that. I guess I can include it on the to-do list for next month. In the meantime, please do watch the making of a Chanel jacket video I shared couple of weeks ago:

I’m featured in Tumblr’s Fashion Spotlight List!

I was wondering why my followers started to grow vastly over a night. Then I realized that the ever so wonderful Tumblr.Com has featured my sewing blog on its popular fashion spotlight list! - well, the Turkish version of my blog :) 

http://tumblr.com/spotlight/fashion 

So, who’s on this list? Rachel Zoe, Nina Garcia, Ell Magazine… and ME! :))

Oh, no… My ego is growing on a critical level…

EASIEST WAY TO MAKE A T-SHIRT DRESS

It is very easy to make your own wardrobe with some simple steps! I mean, not everything you sew should be featured in a fashion magazine… If you are a consumer of RTW world, then with average sewing skills, you can easily make a good quality RTW outfit as well!

Moreover, it is quite easy to create different outfits by using simple and basic patterns, like the one I used in this dress. This was created with a basic t-shirt pattern. 

Well, you don’t know how to sew a t-shirt either? No problem! You can use one of your t-shirts that you already got bored with.

All you need is half a meter fabric that you’d like to sew onto your t-shirt .  

For example, I wanted to make use of a denim fabric leftover which was barely half a meter. In the meantime, I wanted to practice (and hopefully improve) my aplique making skills, so I made this flimsy patch onto my skirt piece. Am I not the designer? I can create whatever I want and call it a new style! :P

DIY fashion ideas jersey dress

All you need to do is to measure the length of your hips, cut that much of fabric and sew it onto your t-shirt hem. 

But I must warn you on one thing. If the fabric you’re using is thicker and thus heavier than your jersey, then your dress may get a little longer than you want. 

Or maybe more

Anyhow… let me pull up the dress for now and shorten the jersey top after writing this post. But isn’t it easy and fun?! In half an hour, I turned a boring t-shirt into a chic outfit. Would you like to try it as well? :D

This is what it takes to wear a Chanel jacket. Some may think that it does worth those ridiculous prices, huh? :)

What do I do? I try to get the best out of life...How did it all start? One day I decided that it is time for me to stop paying for clothes so much and make them myself. But the problem was, I had never sewn before in my life! So, I started following my inner voice... and youtube records... Since then, I sew whenever I can and defy the zillion dollar fashion industry in my own way :))
