Another great make from @sew_shick ! โ € โ € 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. " ( #๐Ÿ“ท @sew_shick )โ € โ € We think your bag turned out amazing! Such an awesome palette that can be worn with everything!

โ € As you may have guessed, we are excited about Merchant & Millsโ€™ new โ€œMade in Denimโ€ patterns. They have awesome names: Clementine, Ottoline, Francine and Heroine. They are silhouettes we want to wear, and they arenโ€™t just for denim!โ € โ € 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!โ € โ € Check out her full review on the blog! โ € ๐Ÿ“ท:@bess_bird โ € โ € โ € โ € .โ € .โ € .โ € .โ € #confidentmaker โ € #ottolinejacket โ € #merchantandmills โ € #slowfashionmovement โ € #handmademovement โ € #sewingproject โ € #homesewn โ € #sewistsofinstagram โ € #sewersgonnasew โ € #handmadewardrobe โ € #handmadefashion โ € #slowfashion โ € #forthemodernmaker โ € #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. Think leggings, True Bias Hudson Pants, or a Grainline Lark Tee! โ € โ € โ € โ € โ € .โ € .โ € .โ € .โ € #confidentmaker โ € #slowfashionmovement #handmademovement โ € #sewingproject โ € #homesewn โ € #sewistsofinstagram โ € #sewersgonnasew โ € #handmadewardrobe โ € #handmadefashion โ € #slowfashion โ € #forthemodernmaker โ € #missoula #missoulamt #missoulamontana

This Saint James striped ponte knit is just about flawless. Made of 70% Rayon, 25% Polyester and, 5% Spandex, it stretches 25% both length-wise and cross-wise. The horizontal stripe makes it perfect for a beefy winter tee. It is also heavy enough for a sheath dress or knit pencil skirt. Completely opaque until stretched to its limit, lining is not necessary. Also, it's currently 15% off...Whoop! โ € .โ € .โ € .โ € .โ € .โ € .โ € .โ € #confidentmaker โ € #slowfashionmovement #handmademovement โ € #sewingproject โ € #homesewn โ € #sewistsofinstagram โ € #sewersgonnasew โ € #handmadewardrobe โ € #handmadefashion โ € #slowfashion โ € #forthemodernmaker โ € #missoula #missoulamt #missoulamontana
With our first snow in the books and chillier weather than ever, we find ourselves gravitating towards all the soft, warm and cozy fabrics, like our flannels! ๐Ÿ˜ What's your favorite fabric to snuggle up to?! โ € โ € โ € โ € โ € .โ € .โ € .โ € .โ € #confidentmaker โ € #slowfashionmovement #handmademovement โ € #sewingproject โ € #homesewn โ € #sewistsofinstagram โ € #sewersgonnasew โ € #handmadewardrobe โ € #handmadefashion โ € #slowfashion โ € #forthemodernmaker โ € #missoula #missoulamt #missoulamontana
Since knits are 15% off this month, we thought we'd give you a little knitsperation, if you will ๐Ÿ˜€ The Lola is a spin off of the classic crew neck sweater. This comfortable slip on dress features raglan sleeves, ribbed hem bands, front neckline V detail, and oversized wrap around pockets. The curved seams give a relaxed, feminine fit. We think it'd be super cute in this purple organic soy knit! โ € โ € โ € .โ € .โ € .โ € .โ € #confidentmaker โ € #slowfashionmovement #handmademovement โ € #sewingproject โ € #homesewn โ € #sewistsofinstagram โ € #sewersgonnasew โ € #handmadewardrobe โ € #handmadefashion โ € #slowfashion โ € #forthemodernmaker โ € #missoula #missoulamt #missoulamontana
Robert Kaufman flannels have been our go-to during the winter months. Theyโ€™re 100% cotton with a woven (rather than printed) design. This means theyโ€™re super soft, thick, and affordable! Whatโ€™s not to love? They have now released a new line, called Taos flannel, and we canโ€™t get enough of them. Bonnie recently made a Sewing Workshop Quincy Jacket (sadly, that pattern is now out of print) with the blue Taos flannel, and it turned out to be the perfect fabric for a fall jacket!โ € ๐Ÿ“ท:@bess_bird โ € .โ € .โ € .โ € .โ € .โ € .โ € .โ € #confidentmaker โ € #slowfashionmovement #handmademovement โ € #sewingproject โ € #homesewn โ € #sewistsofinstagram โ € #sewersgonnasew โ € #handmadewardrobe โ € #handmadefashion โ € #slowfashion โ € #forthemodernmaker โ € #missoula #missoulamt #missoulamontana

Day 9 #victory #bpsewvember I sewed jeans. It was a goal of mine this year. This is pair number 3 and I finished them today. This pair I have mixed feelings about. They are high waisted...enough so that I feel like they are making friends with my bra.๐Ÿ˜‚ I had to alter them down so much that the pockets are too far to the side. I took notes. We'll see how I feel after my next two jeans patterns are completed, which won't be this month. #heroinejeans @merchantandmills #imadejeans #sewingjeans #joinus4jeans @whitney.makes denim is #robertkaufman 10 oz no stretch from @theconfidentstitch #confidentmaker #sewallthethings

We mentioned before that Meredith, Bonnie and Jane were all working on their own versions of the Wiksten Kimono. โ € โ € Meredith is all about the earth tones, and with so many great fabrics to choose from, it was a tough decision!

New blog post! The Clementine is from Merchant and Millsโ€™ new line of patterns, called โ€œMade in Denim.โ€ Of course, we decided to make it not in denim, but in our Eco Twill, which is 65% recycled polyester and 35% organic cotton. The polyester comes from Polyethylene Terephthalate (PET) bottles used for drinking and soda packaging. โ € โ € The fabric is gorgeous, but it does not drape or stretch at all. Even as the day goes by, the fabric holds its crispness. Do not even think about wearing this fabric at Thanksgiving dinner! ๐Ÿ˜‚ The pattern is great for a crisp fabric, though. It has a shaped waistband, so you donโ€™t have to rely on fabric stretch to make the waistband hug your shape.โ € Photo by @bess_bird โ € โ € โ € .โ € .โ € .โ € .โ € #confidentmaker โ € #slowfashionmovement #handmademovement โ € #sewingproject โ € #homesewn โ € #sewistsofinstagram โ € #sewersgonnasew โ € #handmadewardrobe โ € #handmadefashion โ € #slowfashion โ € #forthemodernmaker โ € #sewcialists โ € #missoula #missoulamt #missoulamontana
One of the main reasons I love sewing... I can dress my kids up in the most ridiculously cute stuff. Here's my favorite little Hobbit in a pair of #artmuseumtrousers with a #artmuseumvest both by @oliverands , moccasins that I made him last spring and a #travellercape by @twigandtale. The leaf of Lorien pin came from Etsy, the green wool coating from @theconfidentstitch and I used a Ventana twill for his trousers and some Essex linen for his vest- both from @evanstonstitchworks . Putting this much effort into a costume feels "worth it" when he can wear all of the pieces again. (The cape will most likely be a dress up piece but he always wants to wear stuff that his sister wears so it will continue to get worn!) #handmadehalloween #sewingforboys #mommade #2018projects #confidentmaker
Sometimes we love a quilting cotton so much, we just have to wear it! Grainline's Scout Tee was the perfect choice for this Frida fabric!

#sewallthethings I used waxed canvas for the exterior (main and pocket) and a lighter fabric for the lining (swipe to see the lovely "maker" 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.

I work at home two days a week but still try to get โ€œdressed.โ€ The #burnsidebibs are in high rotation - the benefits of high waist without a waistband, stay put for all manner of leaning, and look cute af if I leave or a neighbor drops by. This style was initially way outside my comfort zone, but Iโ€™ve worn these more than almost anything else I made last year.

Current #wip This shirt is taking me longer than I expected. I knew Style Arc has limited instructions but this one pattern is really limited. Example: sew front and back side seams. BUT it never mentions the bust darts and side vent except in the line art. The cuffs had a little more instruction but the first one still took me 4 tries to get it right. Now I'm down to buttonholes, buttons and a hem (which it also doesn't mention - but it does say "press your finished shirt" ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿ˜‚). I hope my machine doesn't argue with me over the buttonholes - sometimes it does.

*New* Raw Silk Noil is in the shop! โ € โ € Silk Noil is soft, breathable, and oh-so-sewable! It's silk, but it's not slippery. Instead, it's slubby and drapey. If you want to machine wash it, experiment on a small piece first. We suggest hand washing or dry cleaning this amazing fabric!โ € โ € .โ € .โ € .โ € .โ € #confidentmaker โ € #slowfashionmovement #handmademovement โ € #sewingproject โ € #homesewn โ € #sewistsofinstagram โ € #handmadefashion โ € #slowfashion โ € #forthemodernmaker โ € #onlinefabricshop โ € #rawsilknoil โ € #textilelove โ € #sewingproject โ € #studioscenes โ € #missoula #missoulamt #missoulamontana
