In Motion - Lining Options

September 27, 2018

The In Motion Leo can be unlined, fully lined, or lined only where you would like. To keep the tutorial simple we went with one construction method; however, if you are lining the front, back or both, you may enclose the seams as shown below.

Lining the Front

Grab the front bodice chest piece. Lay right side (RS) up.
Lay the yoke, right sides together (RST), with the chest bodice piece. 
Place the front bodice chest lining on top, RST. Pin all three layers together.
Sew or serge.
Open up the main fabric and lining. (Yoke is folded over on top of the lining so that it's out of the way, it's just hard to see here).
Flip the bottom front bodice piece up and lay RST with the chest bodice piece. Raw edges should be matching. 
Fold down the lining to meet the raw edge. Pin all three layers together. Sew or serge.
Reach in and pull the bodice RS out.

Lining the Bottoms

Shown here are the back bottoms and back bodice. However, this is the same method that is used for lining the front bottoms and enclosing your seams.
Lay the back bodice RST, matching up the raw edges. 
Lay the back bottoms lining on top, RST. Pin all three layers together. Sew or serge.
Topstitch. Repeat for the front and then head to the first step on page 12 of the tutorial.

Sew Americana Blog Tour
Sew Americana Blog Tour

Independence Day is right around the corner, and so with it comes Wild + Wanderful's Sew Americana Blog Tour!  I follow this tour every year, so I'm really excited to be participating in it for the first time.

Nothing says "summer sewing" over here at SSD quite like the Emerie Romper, and wheI think Americana, I think of the peace and love, tie-dye vibe of the 70s. As it turns out, I happen to be a big lover of dying things.

Daybreak - Swimsuit Hack
Daybreak - Swimsuit Hack

May 21, 2019

Soon after the Daybreak release there was an inspiration post made in the Striped Swallow Designs' facebook group of a tankini swimsuit that looked very similar to the Daybreak for the top. My daughter had a school field trip coming up to the waterpark the following week and I knew it would be perfect so I set out on making one the next day. (The photo on the right is from Swimfully.) I used the Into the Blue for my bottoms -- no mods, just skip adding the top of the ITB and they make super cute swimsuit bottoms.
