My new seamwork bobby.
super comfy and super easy to make. made in a double brushed poly from la finch fabrics.

i'll call this my wearable muslin as i was unsure about the fit. i went with a size 10 and added 2 inches to the bodice based on one of the models seamwork used who is 5'10. i'm 5'9" and i think it's about a half inch too much and will remove for next time. i also subbed out the the 2 inch elastic for 1.5 inch... which could explain why it feels a half inch off but even still i think it's a little too long. it's hard to see in a photo but it's a little baggie at the waist but it works!
this came together really quickly and i really like how all the seams are encased.
it's like wearing pj's!

My first at-home sew, adria by seamwork magazine. the fabric is an old curtain, possibly from my grandmother’s beach house, and i swear i got a whiff of the ocean each time i ironed. special thanks to @fika_handmade for being on-call to answer my many panicky dart, sleeve, and facing-related questions. ❤️🧵✂️🌴

Otra costura de las propuestas para este año la #zinniaskirt de #seamwork @colettepatterns. al ser la tela estampada no se aprecian las tablas y las trabillas del cinturón. y aprovecho para incluirla el el #memademay2019 día 6 #yomelocosoyomelopongo #costurera #memademywardrobe #ilovesewing✂️❤️ #memademay2019 #zinniaskirt

#bpsewvember day 5: warm. i love to wear layering clothes in cold season🍂 i'm wearing the oversized dress ( #seamworktacara ) and memade black pleated dress underneath. i wanted to wear tacara dress as a tunic, so i made the side slits. .

Trying to stay enthused with my plan to sew a few more clothes for myself. i cut out the pink top, marked the darts, and then lost interest. sewed four pairs of boxer briefs/trunks for my husband, a new pillow case for my eldest kiddo, and then told myself i should just push through and sew this top.
_
the green shorts are the @colettepatterns/@seamworkmag #harringtonshorts (size xl) with my 2" lowered rise, and some patch pockets for something different. it's in green linen from @spotlightstores . i've been wearing these all day, hence the wrinkles.
_
the pink top is the @cashmerette #springfieldtop (size 14 c/d) with slightly raised bust darts, but i forgot to do the dropped shoulder adjustment on the right side 🤦 it's in pink (because this colour isn't just "pink") broadcloth from @spotlightstores which isn't very flowy, hence the odd bulge on my back, but i knew that when i bought it and it doesn't bother me. and let's be honest, i don't often stand in this pose. i wasn't sure how the colour would look on me but i figured it was time to take a risk, and have more than just blue, black, and red (and one green!) tops. every topstitched seam has two rows 0.7 cm/0.25" apart in red.

It’s april 1st and that means it’s seamwork day! i’ve been terrible at posting my makes but i’m making it a quarter year resolution to be better 😂 here’s my @seamworkmag #seamworkbobby in a ridiculously comfy scrunchy red knit. i wear a lot of black so it’s refreshing to have a pop! of red in my closet. .
almost forgot 😳, 📷: @taylorpru 😘.

La semana pasada estuve de vacaciones y me cosí esta camisa. ¡primera costura del año! la tela es viscosa y el patrón es rachel de @seamworkmag. el año pasado (qué raro suena) probé otros dos patrones de camisa de manga larga, y de momento este es el que más me gusta, porque el cuerpo no es entallado pero las mangas y el cuello sí que son estrechos. para la próxima creo que cambiaré el pliegue de atrás por un canesú con pliegue, porque suelo llevar las camisas por dentro del pantalón y queda raro (3a foto). las mangas no me quedan largas por una vez! hice costuras francesas por todo el interior de la camisa. me acerco cada vez más al momento de cortar la tela de liberty que tengo guardada! //
i had some days off last week and made this shirt. i used the #seamworkrachel pattern. last year i tried a few long sleeve shirt patterns and was never 100% happy, there was always something off with the fit or style. i love that the body is loose-fitting, but the sleeves and collar are narrower. i didn’t have to shorten the sleeves for once!! i sewed french seams and i’m so pleased with the finishing. i will change the back pleat detail for a yoke and pleated back next time. also need to do a small forward shoulder adjustment. i usually wear my shirts tucked in and it looks weird with the pleat (3rd photo). i’m finally getting closer to cut my precious liberty fabric 😆
