Me-Made-May '15!!


I first had a go at this back in 2013, and I learnt a lot, in fact I gave my hand-made wardrobe a good over haul on the back of it. I can't remember why I didn't participate last year although it might of been because I was bit thin on the ground as a result of the previous years clean out, or it could be a result of laziness, who knows!

Right now I feel more content with my makes than I ever have, so I figured it was time for another go! The aim is lesser this time round due to my new job where we have to , how do they put it, be 'walking manikins'!?  so only wearing the clothes we sell in the shop, which is a bit of a bummer but sort of makes it easier at the same time! (although I don't think I should be saying that!!)
so here's what I pledge.....

'I, Sarah of fashion brick road ( sign up as a participant of me made may '15.
I endeavor to wear a minimum of two me-made garments per week during May.'

Inspiration Wednesday....

There's nothing like a bit inspiration in our chosen area to keep motivated! It's fair to say that all of us struggle from time to time with motivation and for me when I'm not sewing as much as I would like my sewjo drops.
I've now realised that in order to keep myself motivated and churning out ideas I need to be inspired and this in-turn keeps the motivation going. So with my whiling the hours away on pinterest I've set up a new board- 'garment details' for all the unusual ideas, construction details and motivation that I need for when I'm feeling a bit low.

Feel free to follow my board on pinterest or alternatively hover over each image and a little P should appear in the top left hand corner so you can pin each image to your own board on pinterest.

March/April's WIP's

It feels like forever since I last did one of these, but alas I've finally got some sewing going on.
The burda awaking beauty dress is almost done save for a few threads to be cut and a good press. A little bit of selfless sewing in the form of a men's shirt for the Bf, this is the toile version. And a self-drafted pattern that I've called the drape waistcoat. A simple open waistcoat with a scarf like piece attached all the way around the front- I'm still unsure how this will turn out but I'm just going to hope for the best.

Net-a-porter sewing inspiration....

I love spending my free time browsing pinterest. I also love browsing net-a-porter and pining the looks I love onto Pintrest.
 Mostly I'm looking for sewing inspiration on net-a-porter as well as styling option.

Here are some looks off my Pintrest net-a-porter sewing inspiration board....

Where do you get your inspiration from?
