Summer is coming to an end soon… In our little town the weather has already gotten worse and in a few weeks I’ll have to pack my summer wardrobe for good. I have mixed feelings about it! I’m sad to say goodbye to many garments that I didn’t wear as much as I’d like, but I’m also very excited to start planning my autumn/winter sewing. I have a few more summer items to make for collaborations with some lovely brands and then I can move on to my autumn plans.

One of my latest summer makes was the Eve dress , the spring pattern release by Sew Over It. I think Eve was their only pattern which I didn’t get the minute it was released. I thought it wouldn’t suit me and I wouldn’t have an occassion to wear it. But all these thoughts went away as soon as I saw Hattie’s version on Instagram. Hattie was pregnat all summer and she posted some stunning maternity outfits that stole my heart. She made a few Eve dresses and one of them she hacked into a maxi version. I was sold!

I LOVE maxi dresses in the summer and a wear them all the time so when SOI’s summer sale came up I grabbed Eve and cut my dress the same day. I used a very unusual fabric that I got months ago from Tsagrinos.gr It was described as a stretch viscose but I’m pretty sure it has some crepe in it, judging from its texture. This is one of my all time favorite fabrics and I think I’m gonna get some more (maybe for a Kimono?) Hopefully there’s still some in stock, bceuase it was only 3 euros per meter.

What is the most difficult part about finding clothing that falls into all three of these categories? Right, the fit. Every human being has a body shape that is just a little bit different from the person next to you. Ready-to-wear clothing manufacturers use standards or "averages" to design and produce clothing that fits the "average" person. What happens when you aren't an "average" size? Your clothing might be well designed and sport the latest in color and fabric, but it just doesn't look good on you. How do you get around that? By learning how to sew!

Sewing your own garments is really not as difficult as it may sound. This course will take you through the very basic elements of fabric choice, how to decipher the pattern envelope and instructions inside, getting to know your sewing machine and how to begin expanding your wardrobe by sewing your own clothing, or clothing for your family.
