Sew Along: The Sew Cinematic

I've been soooooooooooooooo slow to get back to blogging... loads has happened and I'll fill you in with everything as soon as I can! It's actually taken me almost 2 weeks to write up this post, and I feel like I've bottled up my excitement about the Sew Along!

Sarah at Rhinestones & Telephones inspired us all to join up and sew along a special handcrafted wardrobe based on wonderful garments on the silver screen! It's called 'That's Sew Cinematic' and you can read all about it via Sarah's gorgeous post (with a button for you!) and get involved as well!

So I wanted to show you what I *have* been doing with my very very very little spare time! PINTERESTING THINGS!

My inspiration, as you may have noticed, is Grace Kelly and her simple yet fetching attire!

My 'The Sew Cinematic' inspiration pinboard via Pinterest! I'm collecting up all my favourite images of Grace Kelly and finding some great themes!

- Simple
- Block Colours
- Very small details
- Edith Head creations (thanks the Rear Window research I did last year!)

Quite interesting themes, and as I'm big on patterns and florals, this could be a bit subdued for my style, bit I REALLY wanna sew a LBD like that V-Neck one in Rear Window, and would love to get a few dog walking outfits like Grace as well!

Over the next week I'll plan out what patterns I have, what fabric I have, and what garments I'll sew up for the Sew Along! If you're joining in, what are you going to do!?

Sorry again that it's been too long, miss you and I'll be back soon!



  1. I love it! I love it! Grace Kelly is such a marvellous inspiration and I cannot wait to see your plans :) *squee* So excited!!

  2. Glad to see your blog back in action! I'm swooning at your inspiration board...Grace Kelly is such a style icon, and I especially love the clothes in Rear Window. Looking forward to seeing what you come up with!

  3. Grace Kelly is my all time favourite movie star. So elegant, and with a quiet intelligence that oozes wit and charm.


Thanks for being awesome and a total darling, leave a message!
