sewing: oxford alder shirtdress "IndyWatch Feed Craft"

This post is written by Lindsay of lindsayinstitches

Hello Imagine Gnats readers! Im so excited to share my oxford alder shirtdress with you today!

Ive admired the Alder Shirtdress from Grainline Studio for some time now, but kept putting it off. Collars and right angled seams were new to me, and I felt a little bit intimidated. Additionally, my machine likes to forget how to do automatic buttonholes properly in the middle of a project, so a dress that required nine could be a recipe for disaster.

Having seen so many enviable versions of this pattern, I just didnt want to be disappointed in my own results.

Im really good at getting in my own way and was quite content to stay there, until I saw this gorgeous oxford shirting hit the shop! It was then that I knew it was time to finally set aside my fears and make the Alder happen. I mean, could there be a more perfect fabric for this dress?

I went with the blue, but it is also available in a crisp white (of which I also grabbed a few yards with plans for a future Alder hack). This fabric has a wonderful texture and is just the right weight for a spring top or dress.

Any button up or dress of this type takes an investment of time to make well. Ill be the first one to admit that I love a quick sew. Unfortunately, that impatience can sometimes breed errors in my garment making. Im still working on finding that sweet spot of good workmanship yet not complete perfectionism.

Anthropologie Inspired DIY - City Trinket Dish "IndyWatch Feed Craft"

 
 
When it comes to styles of home & furniture, I  am a huge fan of Anthropologie. Their offer resonates deeply with my bohemian spirit and I am a frequent visitor who invariably drools over their fantastic stuff, and seeks inspiration when the days are dragging and inspiration is scarce. Which leads me to their trinket dish.
The minute I saw it I wanted to make one for ourselves. Now, I might have as well order it, for such a piece is worth having - they collaborate with some  fantastic indie designers - but the drive to make something myself usually prevails, and I was determined to give this a try.
 
Now, bear in mind that I am not a professional sculptor, clay master or porcelain guru. Just a plain person who enjoys playing with clay. I don't have many required tools, but I have a desire to create as big as a house, so I took out my polymer clay, doodled city images, applied varnish, glued it and voila!
My trinket, or jewelry dish is done!
