May: What have I been sewing?

Updated: Jun 12, 2019



I had a very productive sewing month with a good mix of samples for the courses and some new additions to my wardrobe.

For my workshops, I sewed samples such as veggie produce bags, wash bags, many different drawstring bags ... etc! I also hosted my Sustainable Sewing Workshop and the attendees got to make their own produce bags. A total of 24 were made!!



For myself, I made a Jumpsuit!! I wasn't sure about it at first but I love it and cannot wait to make more. It is very comfortable to wear, just the linen needs to get a bit softer.


I attended a sandal making workshop and made two pairs. I have worn them a lot and very impressed how well the hold together. I think one pair, the leather stretch out a bit more than the other. I hope this is somewhat fixable.



I continued sewing plain coloured garments and sewed up a Silk Cami with grown-on sleeves in a cream Viscose Crepe. I made another pair of culottes, same pattern and type of fabric as last month. I feel very feminine and elegant in it.



In run to my holiday, I made a basic black cotton jersey tee with a comfy pair of loose-fitting trousers in Rayon.


My scrap bin was overflowing and had to find a solution for it. I made a floor pouff out of some of my favourite (bigger) scrap Chambray pieces and stuffed it with smaller scrap pieces.


To support my friends from the Boomerang Bags organizsation, I sewed them 9 bags to fight against single use plastic bags.

And last but not the least, I made another plain coloured top - the Sutton Blouse by True Bias. I can see many more of these tops in my wardrobe. I really like the v-neck in the front. It isn't cut too deep and the top isn't too loose that when you reach for something, people can see your bra. You can't see it in the picture, because I tucked the blouse in, it has side slits and a longer back.


What have you been sewing this month?

Thanks for hanging out with me.
