Hey All - Meredith here! I need your help! Bonnie is sewing up a shop sample of the #hinterlanddress to fit little old me and I get to pick the fabric! 😍 I'm still deciding which version to do...maybe 3/4 length sleeves? Maybe short sleeves? I'm also torn between our Cupro Tencel Linen in black and the Designer bottom-weight Linen in cinnamon...so I'm putting in your hands! Leave a comment to vote for the color and whichever has the most votes will win!
What are you doing on Monday, Jan 21st? ⠀ ⠀ Join us for a sewing service project! Between 10am-5pm, we will provide you with treats, sewing machines, and guidance to make cozy swaddle blankets (like the one pictured here) for Mountain Home Montana! This Missoula-based organization provides shelter for young mothers who need a place to live, and a network of support as they create safe, stable, and nurturing homes of their own.⠀ ⠀ We hope to see you! ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #confidentmaker#slowfashionmovement #handmademovement#sewingproject#homesewn#sewistsofinstagram#sewersgonnasew#handmadewardrobe#handmadefashion#slowfashion#forthemodernmaker
We have four brand-new patterns in the shop from Merchant & Mills! We definitely have our eye on the Costermonger Tote! How great would that be for farmer's market goodies?! Plus, it would look great in our durable and rugged waxed cotton...actually, they all would!

The pants run from size newborn to a toddler’s 3, so you’ll get lots of use out of this pattern!⠀ ⠀ Whether it’s for your own babe or to give as a gift, these harem pants are super cute, use just a small amount of fabric, and are a cinch to stitch!⠀ ⠀ Sign up here: https://bit.ly/2SGSqKI⠀ ⠀ 📸: @shopwiksten ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #confidentmaker#slowfashionmovement #handmademovement#sewingproject#homesewn#sewistsofinstagram#sewersgonnasew#handmadewardrobe#handmadefashion#slowfashion#forthemodernmaker
Lovely, lovely linen 😍 It's definitely having a moment, not only in fashion, but home decor as well! We are working on a few fun projects involving linen to inspire you beyond your wardrobe!

Every year in Honor of the Martin Luther King, Jr. holiday, The Confident Stitch hosts "Stitch for a Cause" where we sew up items to benefit a local non-profit.

Simply buy a yard of cozy fabric for a swaddling blanket, and we'll provide the sewing machines, guidance, and treats!⠀ ⠀ Thank you for helping us support this great organization in our community! ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #confidentmaker#slowfashionmovement #handmademovement#sewingproject#homesewn#sewistsofinstagram#sewersgonnasew#handmadewardrobe#handmadefashion#slowfashion#forthemodernmaker

This thick and rich double-layer wool is loden green on one side and golden yellow on the other. Both sides have the texture of boiled wool and make an amazing winter coat or jacket. Confident Maker @justinemariecouture makes this Butterick Draped Collar Coat look fantastic! 🙌⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #confidentmaker#slowfashionmovement #handmademovement#sewingproject#homesewn#sewistsofinstagram#sewersgonnasew#handmadewardrobe#handmadefashion#slowfashion#forthemodernmaker

Let's take a moment to drool over @endearingeveryday 's raw silk noil Hinterland Dress! 😍 Emily's sweet version of the Hinterland is a piece that will stand the test of time. She describes her dress as something that’s worthy of being put in the hope chest to be saved for years and years. We couldn't agree more! And if a picture of her dress leaves you wanting more, she has a dreamy Instagram feed that will inspire you to sew something lovely just for you! Thanks for sharing @endearingeveryday !💙 #confidentmaker
Getting creative to hold down tiny pattern pieces.
Two Kimonos, three ways! The Jalie Melanie Kimono is unlined, with a sash. The Wiksten Kimono/Haori is a fully lined and reversible garment. The Wiksten is not technically a kimono, and in fact the company just announced a name change: the pattern will now be called the Wiksten Haori, to better reflect the style. (Traditionally the haori is worn over a kimono as a jacket). See how these patterns compare on our blog! https://bit.ly/2Ve5kBJ 📸:@bess_bird
Our next 'Learn to Sew Garments' Class is coming up starting January 9th and there are only two spots left! Using the Palmer/Pletsch Learn-to-Sew pattern, each student will make an apron, and in the process learn about sewing tools, how to select fabric, and how to use a sewing machine. Kate will cover important techniques, such as stay stitching, grading, clipping and notching, understitching, and hemming. You’ll leave with a beautifully finished apron, and the know-how to tackle your next garment!
The Klum House Woodland Dopp Kit is the perfect travel companion. This boxy zipper pouch is durable, water-resistant, and spacious enough to keep all of your personal items organized while you’re on the go. Find the pattern and plenty of colors of waxed cotton in our shop! 📸:@klumhouse
Introducing the Chilton Trench Coat! Our seamstress, Bonnie found the pattern instructions easy to follow, even though there are a ton of pattern pieces. She was downright gleeful about all the topstitching! Even with lightweight fabric, the coat is substantial, however, you may want to avoid thick fabrics for this pattern. Catch all the details on our blog! 📸:@bess_bird
Planning a new knit top with Soy Jersey from @theconfidentstitch Pattern yet to be determined. #coffeeandwatercolor @wellcoffeehouse #confidentmaker #sewingplanner
Our Island Batik Night Vision rayon is fine and drapey with a hand-stamped artistic touch! It’s perfect for any blouse AND it’s 15% off until the end of the month, woohoo!
This fall we introduced the Sew Liberated patterns to our shop, and Bonnie has been busy making up samples to show them off! The Metamorphic Dress has been high on our list of patterns to try. It’s loose and reversible, ideal for layering, and has a free-spirited vibe that we love. There were a few hiccups in the making of this dress, but check out the blog to find out how Bonnie dealt with them! 📸:@bess_bird https://bit.ly/2R7Zz9q
I finished my Ginger jeans last night but the lighting was bad. Then I remembered just how difficult it is to photograph black. And to photograph pants. Doh! It is much easier to make these jeans then to photograph them. 🤪 On that note - I LOVE the Ginger jeans! I didn't need to make any alterations. #gingerjeans #closetcasepatterns @closetcase.patterns I LOVE this denim! #confidentmaker @theconfidentstitch #joinus4jeans #makingjeans #nofear #sewing #sewistsofinstagram #memade #sewsomething #makersgottamake #sewover50
As the "12 Days of Christmas" celebration comes to an end, I'd like to thank all of you for participating. While I know some "12 Days" purchases are destined to be gifts, I hope you also treat yourself to some awesome tools. If you're like me, you'll be putting a few not-quite-finished projects in gift boxes this year. That's fine. You'll get them done, and they will be heartfelt and handcrafted. Thanks for all you do for others, and I hope you find time to hunker down and use your new tools to make yourself some great stuff this winter! Love, Kate
*12 Days of Christmas* Dec 15- Merchant and Mills Oilskin Sewing Kit Made in Rye, England, from antique British oilskin, this sewing wrap is made for the intrepid home sewer. It contains the basics: 1 box of dressmaking pins, 25 fine sewing needles, a tape measure, and wide bow scissors. It rolls up and ties with attached soft cotton twill tape. Roll your favorite tools in this oilskin wrap, and feel like an Olde Englande sophisticate wherever you go. https://bit.ly/2SCfh9W
So this is happening. Trying jeans pattern number 4 (of 5). Today I cut out the pdf and the gorgeous black denim. Tomorrow I start to sew. Should I topstitch in black for a dressy jean? Or in gold for a sportier look? 🤔 #gingerjeans @closetcase.patterns #sewingjeans #pdfpatterns #allthetape @theconfidentstitch #confidentmaker #sewistsofinstagram #sewing #memadewardrobe #sandiegosews #makersgottamake #isewmyownclothes
Katarina Roccella takes us on a beautiful journey to the Mediterranean coast with Mediterraneo. Exotic fruits, flowers, and artistic elements are spiced with shades of navy, magenta, and hints of tangerine to have you sewing in paradise. This lightweight rayon will elevate a simple Scout Tee or Montrose Top!
*12 Days of Christmas* Dec 14- Tailor’s Clapper Like the Tailor’s Ham, you’ll wonder how you ever lived without a Clapper. A perfectly shaped piece of hardwood with a groove for easy gripping, the clapper holds the fabric in place and absorbs the steam from the iron, making a super-crisp edge. It’s great for hems, especially with thick fabrics. It’s also great for fabrics that you don’t want to touch with the iron. You can gently steam above the fabric, and then place the clapper on the fabric and let it cool with the clapper holding the crease in place. And, don’t forget perfectly flat quilt seams! You and your sewing deserve a clapper! https://bit.ly/2Gd9Uwz
So many flannels, sometimes it’s hard to choose! 💁🏻‍♀️Are you drawn to the big and bold colors, or more neutral tones?
*12 Days of Christmas* Dec 13- The Steady Betty Steady Betty is a 12" x 12" pressing platform that instantly elevates your quilt piecing. The board gently grabs your fabric pieces so they don't move as you press. It's better than having a third hand because it reduces the amount of fabric stretching and distortion, especially on the bias. Steady Betty stays cooler than most pressing surfaces (less finger-burning!). Betty's regular price is $38, which is not a lot for a game-changing tool, but she costs just $26.60 today. Both you and Betty are worth it! https://bit.ly/2RW5ZFG
Tencel is an eco-friendly fabric made with wood pulp cellulose from the eucalyptus tree. It uses a non-toxic solvent during its production process and uses much less water than the production of most fabrics. Tencel is extremely absorbent, irritation free, naturally prevents the growth of bacteria, and is 100% biodegradable, making it a comfortable AND sustainable choice! It also has an amazing drape and a unique texture, similar to a sandwashed silk. We can’t say enough good things about this fabric! Now is the time to stock up as Tencel is included in our December garment markdown at 15% off 😍 Try it for your next True Bias Southport Dress or Sew House Seven Burnside Bibs!
I see some selfish sewing in my future - wouldn’t be the holidays without a new (last minute) top 😜Thanks for the inspiration @theconfidentstitch
*12 Days of Christmas* Dec 12- Merchant and Mills Needle Wallet We keep this brown leather needle wallet near the cash register, and it’s one of the things customers examine, and then sigh. They love it, but they hesitate to spend $42.00 on themselves (even though it comes with 25 needles and cute little scissors!). The needle wallet’s pinked felt “pages” are just like the beautiful needle wallet Kate’s aunt embroidered for her many years ago. She still cherishes it, and it remains the best way to store her hand-sewing needles. This gift to yourself will last forever. https://bit.ly/2EbT8LH
Only a few days left to get your Salida Skirt and perfectly paired corduroy at 15% off! Bonnie is busy sewing up both versions and we can't wait to show you! In the meantime, order your pattern and fabric, and if you need a hand, @truebias has a handy sew along to help you out! Our sale ends Dec 15th - make sure to use code SALIDA at checkout!
Dec 11- Steamfast Iron SF 750 Whether you’re traveling abroad, or heading to a quilt retreat, you will love this cute little iron. It not only looks like a Smart Car, but it also heats up in three minutes, and holds enough water for serious steaming. It comes with a small measuring cup for distilled water, and its own little bag. It fits great in the palm of your hand. Today’s price of $26.95 for some tiny steam-generated awesomeness is so worth it! https://bit.ly/2C43nAp
❄️12 Days of Christmas❄️ Dec 8- Zirkels! Zirkels are like potato chips – you can’t have just one! You need one next to your sewing machine, one on your ironing board, and a third for when you can’t find the first two. 🤣 Zirkels are magnetic pin cushions that magically splay your pins in a circle, making the pins much easier to grasp on the fly. Kate stills has a regular magnetic pin cushion at home, and it’s such a jumble of pins, needles, and safety pins, she can barely stand it! Grab this sewing necessity for 30% off today only! https://bit.ly/2E906SF
Classic tailoring blends with effortless style in the Lenox Shirtdress. This structured beauty features curve-friendly princess seams, a traditional or band collar, and the choice of a pleated or gathered skirt. A V-neck button placket frames your face, while roomy pockets provide the perfect hiding spot for your phone and lipstick. Level up your sewing skills and turn heads with this sophisticated shirtdress in our Designer Tencel Denim (which happens to be 15% off!).
Little baby L will never have her diaper bag confused with another baby’s. Bag is accompanied by a changing pad with pockets for diapers and wipes. #babysewing #handsewnbag #isew #confidentmaker
❄️12 Days of Christmas❄️ Dec 7-Tailor’s Ham Once you start using a tailor’s ham to press curves, you won’t want to stop! This densely packed pressing surface was created by tailors to mimic the shape of a shoulder, so it’s great for setting in sleeves. It works for anything curved – waistbands, darts, cuffs…One side of the ham is cotton and can tolerate a very hot iron. The other side is wool, and is better for medium temperatures. The ham makes pressing curves easy! https://bit.ly/2SrjjBX
Big and bold, Red is our Quilting Cotton Color of the Month! Make a statement or liven up a project with this vibrant hue at 15% off all month long!
❄️12 Days of Christmas❄️ Dec 6- Box of 50 Wonder Clips Can you have too many Wonder Clips? We think not: They are indispensable for bag-making; they are a fun way to hold the next few inches of quilt binding in place; they secure a jeans hem; and, they hold your tresses away from your face when deadlines get hairy! If you love Wonder Clips as much as we do, now is a great time to stock-up! They come in a cute box. And, rainbow! 🌈 https://bit.ly/2FSv2rM
To spread the joy around, I’m running a flash sale through tonight : buy any tote (Daily or Easy) and get a bitty bag of your choice free. Just put both in your cart and the discount will be applied automatically. Website link is in my profile.
❄️12 Days of Christmas❄️ Dec 5- Perfect Fuse Three-Yard Package Have you tried Perfect Fuse Interfacing yet? So often, patterns call for “interfacing,” without specifying the type or weight. Interfacings range from drapey gauze to cardboard. It’s hard to know which weight is best for each project. And, once you figure out what you need, you only have a six-inch piece of it. Now is the time to stock up on the best garment interfacing Kate has ever used. Palmer/Pletsch’s line of high-quality, wide (60″) weft fusible interfacing is the best for fashion sewing because it was specifically developed – by sewers – for sewers! Stock your shelves with three-yard packs of Sheer, Light, Medium and/or Tailor weight interfacings and be ready for any project. Each pack explains which fabrics and pattern pieces it works best for. https://bit.ly/2SsJfNu
I think I've found my winter uniform. Mornings and evenings are cool but the afternoons are warm. This flannel is perfect! Cozy and soft. The neckline adds a touch of feminine. Cheyenne Tunic from #heyjunepatterns . I can roll the sleeves up when it's warm. And I love this colorway! #confidentmaker @theconfidentstitch #cheyennetunic @heyjunehandmade #sewing #ilovesewing #memade #sewsomething #fabriclove #makersgottamake #isewmyownclothes #sandiegosews #ithaspockets #sewersofinstagram #sewover50
❄️ 12 Days of Christmas -Dec 4th❄️ 8.5” Kai Scissors + 5.5” Kai Scissors Kai Scissors cut through fabric like a hot knife through butter, they feel comfortable in your hands, and they snip cleanly all the way to their tips. Plus, they are less expensive than other high-quality brands. Kate’s two favorite sizes of Kai Scissors are the 8.5” and the 5.5”. They are all she needs for everything from snipping threads, notching curves, to cutting out garment patterns. Treat yourself to this set of scissors at a fantastic discount! They may be all you ever need! 8.5" https://bit.ly/2BNXlnl 5.5" https://bit.ly/2zFJ4Yl
The Clare Coat is a chic cool-weather staple. Featuring raglan sleeves and an unstructured A-line silhouette, Clare is a great introduction to the joys of coat making!

Our one-inch cotton webbings from Japan are SO PRETTY, and SO STRONG! Each one has edge stitching in a contrasting color. At a regular price of $7.30 per yard, they are a little spendy. Today only, all seven colors are only $5.11 per yard. It’s time to stock up! You’re worth it (and so are your bags!). https://bit.ly/2BMTmY4
Hello December! Our featured garment fabric of the month is Rayon! You may not know that rayon is made from natural fibers such as the cellulose of wood pulp, (like bamboo), or cotton. This natural base makes it a diverse fabric that offers great comfort and breathability. Rayon has a silk-like feel with wonderful drape and is less likely to build up static electricity or pilling! Stock up on our sweet selection at 15% off all month long! 🎉
Popped by @theconfidentstitch yesterday and got inspired for the next shop update. Expect a more “professional” Daily Tote and a brand new crossbody purse.

New in the shop: Robert Kaufman Corduroys! These 100% cotton beauties come in two different weights. The lighter has more drape and works great for kids clothes or tops, while the heavier is still not too heavy, but would make lovely skirts or trousers!

If you sew using independent patterns, like we do, you’ve probably noticed that these patterns are almost exclusively designed for women. Bucking that trend is Thread Theory, an indie pattern company out of Canada that specializes in menswear. Their line of wardrobe staples helps to fill the void for men who like to sew, and for women who like to sew for them! Read the full pattern review on our blog! 📸:@bess_bird . . . . #confidentmaker #slowfashionmovement #handmademovement #sewingproject #homesewn #sewistsofinstagram #sewersgonnasew #handmadewardrobe #handmadefashion #slowfashion #forthemodernmaker

New! Forage is a collection of Anna Graham’s hand-drawn designs overprinted on Essex Linen and Essex Yarn-Dyed Linen. Forage is inspired by Anna’s nature walks around her home in western Wisconsin. She lives along the Mississippi River and finds the nature of this place to be incredibly inspiring! These fabrics are 55% linen and 45% cotton, and would make an amazing Grainline Tamarack Jacket, Closet Case Jenny Overalls, or simply some throw pillows or a quilt back! 📷:@bess_bird . . . #confidentmaker #slowfashionmovement #handmademovement #sewingproject #homesewn #sewistsofinstagram #sewersgonnasew #handmadewardrobe #handmadefashion #slowfashion #forthemodernmaker #missoula #missoulamt #missoulamontana

Another great make from @sew_shick ! ⠀ ⠀ She says: "I used waxed canvas for the exterior (main and pocket) and a lighter fabric for the lining. I was nervous about making it since I hadn't worked with canvas (waxed or otherwise) before. I do recommend the finishing kit from Klum house, it removes the hunt for the hardware. The pattern really walks you through it. " ( #📷 @sew_shick )⠀ ⠀ We think your bag turned out amazing! Such an awesome palette that can be worn with everything! Thanks for tagging #confidentmaker ! ⠀ ⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #slowfashionmovement #handmademovement#sewingproject#homesewn#sewistsofinstagram#sewersgonnasew#handmadewardrobe#handmadefashion#slowfashion#forthemodernmaker#klumhouse #yayfremont #fremonttote#missoula #missoulamt #missoulamontana
⠀ As you may have guessed, we are excited about Merchant & Mills’ new “Made in Denim” patterns. They have awesome names: Clementine, Ottoline, Francine and Heroine. They are silhouettes we want to wear, and they aren’t just for denim!⠀ ⠀ Bonnie loves her jacket. She thinks the Ottoline can be made fancy or casual depending on the fabric you choose (pictured here in Carolyn Friedlander Essex Linen in Roasted Pecan). Another winner from Merchant & Mills!⠀ ⠀ Check out her full review on the blog! ⠀ 📷:@bess_bird ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #confidentmaker#ottolinejacket#merchantandmills#slowfashionmovement#handmademovement#sewingproject#homesewn#sewistsofinstagram#sewersgonnasew#handmadewardrobe#handmadefashion#slowfashion#forthemodernmaker#missoula #missoulamt #missoulamontana
Art Gallery Knits are amazingly soft and just the right thickness. Made of 95% cotton and 5% spandex, they have 4-way stretch and great recovery with little to no pilling.
