Hi curvy friends! We’ve come to the end of the Extras & Accessories stage of the Curvy Year of Sewing, so it’s time for a round up of everything the community made. It’s fantastic seeing such a range of sewn accessories and to have such an opportunity for inspiration.
Here’s what you’ve all been making:
Just in time to wrap up #curvyyearofsewing extras and accessories @blankslatepatterns just released their latest pattern the #KireiCami I did the swingy version in this sequin knit which is great for kicking it up a notch. Also has fitted version and optional shelf bra. Great for those 2 yards or less pile of fabric I have in my stash. Link to purchase in my bio.

I’m so proud of this outfit! Heading to Rome tomorrow, so obviously I need a Roman Holiday inspired outfit. The shirt is a @byhandlondon pattern and the skirt is drafted from a dress I own. I’ve been trying new things this year. On this project, I drafted my first pattern, made a belt, and did a rolled hem. All of the fabric came from a store near Pittsburgh called the Fabric Place. Probably the nicest materials I’ve ever worked with… #MeMadeMay2018 #mmmay18 #memade #sewvintage #bhl #craftypittsburgh #curvysewingcollective #curvyyearofsewing #romanholiday
New me-made shoes…apologizing in advance for all the pictures 😄 These are my May/June entry for @curvysewingcollective “extra/accessories” category in the #curvyyearofsewing . Made these yesterday from a kit from @rebeccameurin . Except for my fear of messing them up or not making them symmetrical they were pretty straight forward to make 😂 Also I probably used twice as many nails as I kept on bending them when hammering 😂 Think they’re going to be in high rotation this summer. #cscmakes #memadeshoes #mmmay18 #tuileriesateliersurlefil #kitchaussuresateliersurlefil
I drafted an “I don’t feel like wearing a bra but I still kinda need to wear a bra” soft bra for PMS days when anything I put on my breasts hurts. It’s was remarkably successful for something I made up as I went along. The fabric is SO SOFT, but has less stretch than anticipated. This is a good thing in many ways, as my GGcups need extra support that a regular soft cup bra can’t provide. However, once I had it on, I couldn’t get it off and had to wait the whole day for my beloved to come home and cut me out of it 😂😂😂 at least it was comfortable. Mods for the final version will include wider straps (I made lovely padded ones, but I need more width), a FRONT CLOSURE 😂 and more room in the front of the cup. 💪 #curvyyearofsewing #imadeabra #andthenigotstuckinit #ivegotbigcupsandicannotlie #imakemyownclothes #grannybra
New underwear for #curvyyearofsewing 👍 this is the @radpatterns #panelundies pattern, made using fabric scraps from my stash. This is such a great stress relieving sew – quick and simple to make and EXTRA comfy to wear (once you get the elastic length right! 😹) #sewing #isew #imakemyclothes #panties #cscmakes #stressrelief #stashbusting
