January 2016 ended on an awesome note for my sewing! I really enjoyed making this piece. Remember one of my goals for 2016 is to showcase more of my pieces by wearing them! This was truly one of those moments where I got to shine. I tried two new patterns and they both worked! These patterns were self drafted and inspired by an online class I completed and a tutorial on inserting the clutch zipper.
As the title of the post says ” I am Amshina” My line is truly a reflection of me and my relationship with my wardrobe and the clothing that makes it up. I know this year I will create the wardrobe that I truly desire to have and the clothes that I am proud to wear.
The dress- Self Drafted Pattern from completing an online course working with Stretch knit! 🙂 I used a stretch knit fabric piece I had bought a while back ( From the stash..lol). Simply cut my pattern and drafted two pockets along with the oversized hem. Serge it all together and Tadah! A dress that showcases fun, function, fashion and fit! 🙂 This took me just under an hour, no joke.. An hour if you mention the ironing! Sewing for myself is very very quick..lol Always in a rush..lol ( I know I know.. I will make more time to sew for me..)
The clutch purse
So I wouldn’t say this was my first rodeo with a purse. A few years back I actually made a laptop tote bag for a friend and she totally loved it. It was the first and last bag I did at the time. Then along came this red number. Inspired by a tutorial I watched and dare to try. Well I took my time, work out the details around the zipper and tadah, We have a clutch folks. Love it.. One of my favourite pieces too for January. I plan to perfect these and add a few to my line so watch out accessory fans. A good customize clutch is an added bonus to that functional wardrobe you seek.
Purse and Dress Unite! 🙂 What a power combo. The vision was clear, I just stepped into action and put my hands to the plough.
I trust my other sewing followers had a great start to January 2016 too. what have you been up to? Do share the 2016 adventure thus far:)
Thank you all for your continued support. Happy Sewing February, I am already off to a great start of trying new things. 🙂 Watch out for my next post!
Just keep sewing, just keep sewing.. what do I do I sew sew….
