Stitched with a Twist!

There’s a contest on Instagram hosted by @i_seam_sew_happy_xx and @oh_liverpool_lou called #stitchedwithatwist. It’s about making a garment your own- altering a pattern, adding embroidery, painting the fabric, etc. I was wandering the aisles of Joann’s and saw this fabric I already had at home. All of a sudden it hit me what I should do! This fabric is reversible. I also have it in grey and you might remember a Deer and Doe top I made with it. I thought it would be fun to play with the two different patterns. I used the Freya pattern from Tilly and the Buttons Stretch but made a gathered skirt for it. I added the pleated detail around the top and did a reverse hem on the sleeve. It felt like it was missing something so I made a sash!

This dress is so comfy and I know I will wear it a lot with leggings and cardigans. I’m so glad I made this. I wouldn’t have thought of it without the contest! There’s still time to join in if you also want to #stitchwithatwist!

And because it’s almost Halloween, here’s my pumpkin! I carved it and used this tutorial from Martha Stewart. https://www.marthastewart.com/1531414/etched-fox-and-bunny-pumpkins

It used a lino cutter and I found it so much easier than actually carving the design. Michael helped me take some fun photos with the lantern he bought recently.
