At the beginning of June I had very little time for personal sewing and wasn’t expecting to get a lot done this month. So I kicked off the month with a super quick and easy make- another Ruska T-Shirt from Breaking the Pattern by Named Clothing. This is one of my favourite patterns and is great for whipping up some quick basics.
I used a super soft leopard print cotton jersey from Textile Express this time. I have always been impressed with the quality of fabric and service from this store, so they are definitely worth checking out if you haven’t already. I have just bought more of the white organic cotton jersey I made my previous Ruska in for another 2 of these I love it so much!
Next up was another Mandy Boat Tee, a free pattern from Tessuti Fabrics. This is my fourth version of this and again, a super quick and satisfying make. I got this ex designer linen knit fabric from Fabric Godmother. It is a perfect top for our summers, nice and breathable but with a long sleeve cause… you know!?
Can you see me?!
I didn’t think I would have the time for this dress but I took a notion that I had to wear it to head on a day trip to London! And I am so happy I did! I mean how could I miss out on this photo op??
This is another Eloise dress from By Hand London in a beautiful Lady McElroy Viscose Crepe from Sister Mintaka. I love the colours of this print and the ‘brushstroke’ style of the flowers. I am definitely embracing prints and bright colours again.
Next up, my second pair of Joan Trousers by Friday Pattern Company. These trousers are the ultimate in comfort and only take a few hours to sew!! Definitely a win!
I used a Black Ponte fabric from the Fabric Room for this pair. I lost count already of how many time I have wore both items in the outfit above so they were definitely a good choice!
So that was it for June. I definitely didn’t get as much made as previous months even though I didn’t stop sewing. I added some great basics to my me-made wardrobe though and of course a fabulous dress!
I have some amazing plans for July, and it’s my birthday month (both in real life and insta!) so you know there will be some new fabrics to play with!
