Vlog: SEW DAY! Ft. Tilly and the Buttons Safiya Dungas from Make It Simple

by - 3/30/2020

Hello! Last week I had one of those days where the sun was shining, new fabric arrived and I had a wave of positivity and creativity. Combined it made for the perfect sew-day, so I decided to film it and take you along with me as I made the Safiya dungarees/jumpsuit from Tilly and the Buttons newest book Make It Simple.

The vlog starts with my plans for the day, then moves into the cutting out and my sewing set up, and I've filmed my first try on and my final review. I really enjoyed this one and it's super casual. I hope it'll provide some light relief and inspire you to crack on with your own perfect sew-day.

Check out the video below:

Sewing Summary:

Fabric: Cotton Double Gauze - I found my fabric in stock HERE.
But I've found some more great CDG fabrics I think would be amazing for this; HERE, HERE & HERE.

Sewing time: A couple of hours

Modifications: A couple of inches off the leg length.

Fit: Great! I was worried they might too tight on my hips or bust, but these fit like a DREAM and they are so comfy. See the vlog for lunging prowess. 

Difficulty: Simple. Just like the book says!

Watch out for: Matching up your side seams. 

Make Again?: Yes! This was one of those patterns where as I was wearing it after my final try on, I was already looking at my fabric stash to see if I could make another. I'd love a darker coloured one, or perhaps in chambray.


Have you got Tilly's new book yet? Out of the three she's done, I think this one is my favourite. 

Thanks for watching!
