Ever since I joined the online sewing community, I’ve been surrounded by the sweetest, most supporting, most lovely people I’ve ever known! Yes, we haven’t met in person and I doubt we’ll ever do, since we all live in different parts of the world, but that doesn’t matter at all. Everyone is always so helpful and kind, supportive and also inspiring.
Oh, the inspiration! This amazing feeling that you absolutely HAVE to make everything you see, but there’s never enough time in the day to make them, this rush of adrenaline when you save ideas for the future and of course the satisfaction you feel when you actually make something inspired by someone else. I have all those feelings every sinle day since I joined the sewing community -thank God for Instagram- and browsing through my feed every morning is always one of the best parts of my day.
In today’s post I thought I’d share 10 of my favorite and most inspiring seamstresses out there. If you don’t already follow them, make sure you do cause they are amazing! There will be a second post with 10 more people next week, because let’s face it, there are so many of you out there and it’s sooo hard to choose!
- Hattie (@hattie_van_der_krohn) : She’s the sweetest lady I’ve ever met! A very talented seamstress that blew me away with her gorgeous outfits during her pregnancy this summer. Hattie also has a YouTube channel if you want to check it out!
2. Rosa (@rosabella.angelica): Another sweet girl and one of the first people I discovered on YouTube! She makes adorable clothes and styles them in the most unique ways. Rosa also shares some very useful tutorials/sewalongs on her channel that are worth checking out.
3. Ana (@cocowawacrafts): Everytime I watch one of Ana’s videos on her channel I think that she must be the happiest person on earth! She’s always smiling and is full of energy! Ana is also a pattern designer (wow!) and very active on Instagram every day. Once a week she hosts the sewing hour chat where an interesting topic about sewing is discussed.
4. Elena (@randomly_happy): Elena’s IG feed has this simple but also very elegant aesthetic that I’m so jealous of. I found her through her blog, which is full of useful information and ideas. She’s trying to create a capsule wardrobe, sewing clothes she’ll actually wear and love and is also very passionate about slow fashion. Have I said her style is amazing? It is!
5. Abi (@craftypinup): You all probably know Abi, she’s one of my favorite seamstresses out there. You can’t have a look at her IG and not feel inspired to start sewing! If you happen to be a retro/vintage lover, then you have to follow her as she makes gorgeous clothes inspired by this era. Don’t forget to also check her YouTube channel.
6. Laura (@petitepassions): I found Laura through her blog. She started this year round challenge called “The Wardrobe builder” where every month the participants sew a specific type of clothes for their wardrobe (last month we made summer dresses, this month is all about sleepwear). I love the outfits she makes!
7. Sarah (@likesewamazing): Sarah is a very very talented seamstress and I love how professional her clothes look! She posts very useful videos on her YouTube channel including tutorials, pattern suggestions (check out her top pattern suggestions for sewing clothes for work) and of course lots of inspiration!
8. Emily (@emilyhallmandesigns): Now, before I intoduce you to Emily, I should prepare you! Her closet will make you feel jealous. Her outfits are stunning. Her style is unique. Emily has a background in fashion and used to have her own clothing line, but she now sews for herself. She posts IG stories every day showing us behing the scenes stuff, sharing advice on fitting and pattern cutting and she’s one of the people that you have to follow if you are passionate about sewing.
9. Jessica (@jessicalorraine01): Jessica lives in Australia and we have so many things in common that I can’t help to feel like I know her in person. She’s on a quest to create a fully handmade wardrobe and sews gorgeous clothes, trying to find her style and what works best for her everyday life. Her YouTube channel is also one that you should check out if you haven’t already, it’s filled with inspiration and useful content like tutorials and sewalongs.
10. Emily (@mlemaust): I love this girl! I found her though her channel and my heart goes to her everytime I see one of her videos. Emily is from England but currently lives in Cameroon with her family. She started sewing a few months ago and posted one video per week sharing the garment she made, the problems she encountered and also personal stories that I love to hear about their life there. I won’t say much about her outfit photos, you’ll have to see them yourselves (they are gorgeous!).
So, that’s all from me today friends!I hope you liked this post! Don’t forget to follow my IG profile if you haven’t already, I’d love to see you there!
