#vpjuly I don't have a good pic of this dress but it is one of my favourite vintage makes. It's Maudella5546 made with gorgeous stretch cotton from @dittofabrics. I love the fit on it.  #vintagesewing

#Sailortop from @marillawalker finished. I enjoyed placing the stripes in this one. It's rather comfy in this viscose knit. I used some new Steam-a-seam lite tape to stick the hems before sewing and it was much easier to sew.  Made a dent in my stash for @summerstitchfest #summerstitchfest

Holiday knitting! Decided to have a go at a chunky version of the  #twocolourcowl from my @mrsmoonyarn book, using my beautiful sea coloured yarn from @thelittlegreysheep. We've certainly had some cowl weather here in Scotland this week. #knittingnewbie #knittersofinstagram

A frazzled hello #sewphotohop after 6 weeks of school holidays. I'm Grace, 44, owner of Beyond Measure, an online sewing shop of special things. I like handmade stuff and supporting makers and small companies. So I am wearing #Simplicity8087 by @lazydaisyjones with fabric from @faberwood_com and my @community_clothing jeans.  @houseofpinheiro

I do like mixing plain and print as it makes fabric go further. Also I tend to wear more plains in the colder months and they usually have an interesting texture. But I love geometric and abstract prints above everything else, it's what makes sewing fun for me! @houseofpinheiro @vhaberdashery  #sewphotohop #print #pattern #geometric #simplicity1284 #xereadress

Managed to squeeze in another #vintagepledge2016 with this #vogue9994 in metallic linen from @thedrapersdaughter. I stayed pretty faithful to the pattern, just took a little out of the width as the shoulders were too wide. Also flared the shape out very slightly instead of it being completely straight down.

Well reckon I just about did it in no time at all! Pics of it on later, when I have done all the stuff I should be doing. 😞  #bigeasytop #makersatelier #woolbouclé

Second entry for the #skippercomp @papercutpatterns @wearethefabricstore. This one in boiled wool from my stash. I extended one back shoulder piece and added three vintage buttons for a nice detail. The sleeves were cut longer and squarer so I can wear comfortably over layers and turn back the cuffs. Neck, sleeves and hem were left raw but I stabilised the neck and shoulders with cotton tape so it hopefully won't stretch out and I like the subtle top stitch effect where the tape is attached…

Details about how I made the circular pockets for my Skipper Tunic from Papercut Patterns. Inspired by pockets on a RTW coat belonging to my sister and are deceptively easy to do!  #BeyondMeasure #sewing #pockets #hack #tutorial #HowTo #handmade
