You can soak up Emily’s love of designing and making clothes, pattern hacking and all things fabric and sewing on her instagram account, blog AND YouTube channel! They are chock full of sewing inspiration, tutorials, reviews and even freebies (a fab ruffle-tee pattern and printables to help with your monthly sewing plans)!
Emily wants to inspire sewists (and non-sewists contemplating the leap!) to try new things and create something both beautiful and individual.
Both beautiful and individual is just how I would describe the Stone fabric that Emily used to make her skirt.
The designer of ‘Stone’ is Otsuki Yumi. All of her designs are first created by hand, most often painted in watercolour, before being digitally printed onto fabric.
This design was inspired by a trip to the sea where Otsuki-san walked along the beach and collected her favourite stones and sea glass before returning home to paint them in watercolour.
Emily described the print as a terazzo, giving me a whole new perspective on it – fresh, cool and light. Which had Spring sewing projects popping up in my head!
I’m curious, what would you make with this fabric?!
Caroline and Alexandra, the co-founders of Selkie Patterns, are my kind of women! They are all about sisterhood and sustainability.
To the point where the front and back of the skirt are made from the same pattern pieces to save paper and printing!
