I used the rest of my Australian birds fabric to make this skirt.
started sewing again and these skirts are my first pieces :)
rest is from H&M | necklace by Bijou Brigitte
Made myself a ‘Jamie’ maxi dress, pattern by Scientific Seamstress
Hello fellow fatsews! I recently acquired me a sewing machine and this is my first big project. Previous projects were adding pockets to all my pocket-less skirts and dresses!
Realistically, it’s a little project but this simple skirt was complicated by the fact that I wanted it lined, did not want to use any elastic and insisted on an invisible zipper. Also I could not figure out how to use the rolled hem foot on my machine. It’s all worked out in the end, even despite the mis-measured waistband.
I ran out of energy before I could start the pink top but here’s a shiny outfit anyway
I h8 this bandeau, there’s too much extra fabric in the back (which I’m not sure how to avoid unless you have rlly small boobs or made a really structured one. This probably doesn’t make sense) and I washed it which took out most of the shine. I have more of this gold fabric so I might make a sports bra looking top.
Totally open to commissions on this skirt but the catch is that you can’t wash it!!! I put my last one through the washing machine and it messed it up. If anyone’s interested I’ll do a test hand wash/hang dry to see what happens.
Last Minute Decision OOTD
Dress: Red, White, and Blue Flowers by me
Shoes: Light Brown Flats from Famous Footwear
Eyeshadow: Whim from Impulse Cosmetics
I had a completely different outfit picked out this morning but changed literally two minutes before leaving for work. My bangs were a mess so I had to pin them up. Look at those eyebrows! Also, look at those roots! I need to dye my hair soon but I’m contemplating a color change.

Someone asked that this be rebloggable so HURR YOU GO
Patterns are really dumb in telling you to finish the body of an outfit, then finish the sleeve, then attach a circle to a circle. It’s possible to do, don’t get me wrong, but unless you have a lot of experience it’s sometimes very aggravating trying to evenly distribute the sleeve around the “hole” cut out for it and match up the seams under the armpit!
(Please note…some patterns, especially to achieve tailored looks, require you to do it the traditional way. Don’t use this method for fashion school assignments or super-complex garments as it will probably screw up the way it ends up fitting in the end. This is mostly for the use of cosplayers to make their job a little easier.)
SO THIS IS WHAT I DO.
PLEASE DO NOT REMOVE SOURCE OR REPOST, THANK YOU
This is a great tutorial; it’s how I always attach my sleeves! C: (and it’s actually a legit way to do it, it’s how we made our mens’ shirts in my fashion class, haha. As long as you finish it with a nice seam it’ll work!)
I always find sleeves the most troublesome thing to draft/modify, so this is awesome!
