All in Sewing
Hi Ya'll! I hope you're enjoying the new Little Lamb Blog. I''m hoping it will be more pleasing to look at, and encourage me to post my makes more often. It's not like I'm not making, It's just hard to photograph it all nicely.
Long time, no sewing for myself. I actually have a few sewing projects I need to photograph and post here, but firstly I wanted to show off my Lily Blouse from Cocowawa Crafts! The absolutely lovely Ana of Cocowawa sent me this pattern to test, and I felt terrible because it launched right after Sewn Seeds so it took a while for me to actually make it. But once I finally busted it out I totally love it.
Today I'll be speaking about my Tilly and the Buttons' Arielle skirt. I really enjoyed making the skirt, and as with all Tilly patterns, the directions are clear and the product is flattering. I ALWAYS struggle with sizing, as my number sizes are always so significantly larger than the size of pattern I end up with, but this is not exclusive to Tilly, it usually happens with all patterns. Do I have reverse body dysmorphia? We just don't know.
This dress is both so sweet and so easy to make, along with its effortlessly flirty design it is surely one of my new favorite patterns. I used a simple patterned quilting cotton, which I was worried about being to flimsy, and it actually looked lovely. Can't wait to make a fall dress with sleeves.
