    madebymeg added the project Bathing Suit + Giveaway
    Web_listing

    I’ve been wanting to try the Sierra pattern as a bathing suit forever, but I waited for summer as an excuse to sew it up. The wraparound style is something I’ve seen a lot, and it’s a fun detail to…

    This is the first of the BurdaStyle patterns I chose earlier this year and the interesting neckline got me really excited to sew it up! I think it would look beautiful in a midweight sweater knit, …

    Thank you! I am a combination of self-taught with some sewing store classes. It’s really ‘practice makes perfect’ for me, as I spend a lot of time sewing each month and have definitely made my shar…

    It wasn’t perfect, but I had so much fun getting there that I wore my new dress with pride. One of the magical things about Pattern Magic is shifting the darts and shaping into the unique design fe…

    This garment is another version of the Granville shirt from Sewaholic, lengthened into a tunic. While the fit was pretty good out of the envelope, I made a number of tiny adjustments to work on the…

    I am obsessed with this clothing refashion. These two mini band tees are for our friends who are decidedly punk rock. Lucky for me, Mr. Made shares a bit of their aesthetic and was giving away some…

    Img_7576_web_listing

    I think one reason home sewing gets a bad rap for looking novice and, well, “home made” is the fact that we seldom have the chance to make multiples. Sure you can make a muslin, but unless you are …

    The print isn’t exactly Christmas-themed, but the deer on the red background seemed just festive enough for me. I had one yard or less for the entire project, so I knew it had to be something small…

    The key to bathing suit perfection? Cups. Without them, my bathing suits have been flimsy, don’t stay in place, and then with tightening always end up too tight. For this one, I had some bathing su…

    Wow this is so cute! I’m glad I read up on yours, too, because I didn’t realize the top was woven. I’m hoping to make this in a swimsuit fabric, so I’ll have to muslin. Love the fabric!
