from finished. I enjoyed placing the stripes in this one. It's rather comfy in this viscose knit. I used some new Steam-a-seam lite tape to stick the hems before sewing and it was much easier to sew.

Holiday knitting! Decided to have a go at a chunky version of the #twocolourcowl from my @mrsmoonyarn book, using my beautiful sea coloured yarn from @thelittlegreysheep. We've certainly had some cowl weather here in Scotland this week. #knittingnewbie #knittersofinstagram

A frazzled hello #sewphotohop after 6 weeks of school holidays. I'm Grace, 44, owner of Beyond Measure, an online sewing shop of special things. I like handmade stuff and supporting makers and small companies. So I am wearing #Simplicity8087 by @lazydaisyjones with fabric from @faberwood_com and my @community_clothing jeans. @houseofpinheiro

I do like mixing plain and print as it makes fabric go further. Also I tend to wear more plains in the colder months and they usually have an interesting texture. But I love geometric and abstract prints above everything else, it's what makes sewing fun for me! @houseofpinheiro @vhaberdashery  #sewphotohop #print #pattern #geometric #simplicity1284 #xereadress How To Make, How To Wear, Sari, Texture, Abstract, Sewing, Prints, Pattern, Fun

Love this fabulous top made by Grace of in our Metallic Ebony Yarn Dyed Essex Linen! Definitely a winning combination. so much so, it makes me doubly disappointed that I didn't reserve some of this fabric before we sold out!

Managed to squeeze in another #vintagepledge2016 with this #vogue9994 in metallic linen from @thedrapersdaughter. I stayed pretty faithful to the pattern, just took a little out of the width as the shoulders were too wide. Also flared the shape out very slightly instead of it being completely straight down.

Well reckon I just about did it in no time at all! Pics of it on later, when I have done all the stuff I should be doing. I Have Done, Turtle Neck, Wellness, Wool, Sweaters, How To Make, Instagram, Fashion, Moda

Second entry for the #skippercomp @papercutpatterns @wearethefabricstore. This one in boiled wool from my stash. I extended one back shoulder piece and added three vintage buttons for a nice detail. The sleeves were cut longer and squarer so I can wear comfortably over layers and turn back the cuffs. Neck, sleeves and hem were left raw but I stabilised the neck and shoulders with cotton tape so it hopefully won't stretch out and I like the subtle top stitch effect where the tape is attached… Back Shoulder, One Back, Vintage Buttons, Cuffs, Tape, Layers, How To Make, How To Wear, High Neck Dress

Beautiful things for folk who make

Here are some details about how I made the circular pockets for my Skipper Tunic from Papercut Patterns. They were inspired by pockets on a RTW coat belonging to my sister and are deceptively easy to do! However, depending on what you are making, I strongly recommend reading through this post first and doing a test run
