GET INSPIRED #SewingStevie
I have some beautiful fabric with a unique design. A friend who visited Africa brought it back for me. The print is large and needed a special pattern, one with the front and back basically on the fold. Stevie was highlighted on Sew Essential, and I thought that it looked promising. I will send a picture when finished. I am in the US and have never ordered on line from another country. It was very easy.
Hey Kathrtyn, so great to read that you found a pattern to match your fabric, I hope it showcases the pattern perfectly. Team Buttons x
I haven’t done any dressmaking in nearly a decade, and had forgotten most of my skills having never been very good at it anyway! Inspired by the Sewing Bee, and having loved Tilly and the Buttons on Instagram for a while, I decided to give it another try. I’ve made two Stevies now: both are impeccable and were quick and satisfying to sew even as a beginner and busy mother, fitting it into evenings here and there. The instructions made it so easy to do a good job even on my very basic machine. I’ve learnt enough to feel confident having a go at more complex pieces now and am so excited to make myself a beautiful handmade wardrobe.
Thank you Kate, it's so great to read comments like yours and yay to handmade wardrobes! x
