Hello,
I'm Rebecca.

I make things.

My Latest Project...

Like many others, I am a fan of history bounding – a category of style that broadly encompasses dressing in historically-spirited clothing.

Heavily inspired, in particular, by a 1840s dress from the collection of the MET, a bishop sleeve hack tutorial for the Hinterland dress I found seemed the perfect way to achieve a modern version for my wardrobe. Come take a look!

Sewing Room Tour

One of my favorite Pinterest rabbit-holes is looking for sewing room tours of other people’s spaces. From shared-use spots to entire rooms set apart solely for sewing, there is clearly no limit to exactly how one should set up their own workspace. My view on sewing spaces is that all you need to start is a bit of table space. If you don’t have the room or the budget, you don’t need much and it doesn’t have to be perfect. Come take a look at my sewing room and see what I mean!

Pattern Review: Folkwear 256 “At the Hop” Blouse

Today I’m bringing you a pattern review for the misses blouse from the Folkwear 256 “At the Hop” sewing pattern. Folkwear 256 “At the Hop” includes sewing patterns for a blouse and skirt, plus a knitting pattern for a cardigan in both “misses” (6-20) and “child” (4-14) sizing. It is marked “easy to sew”. When I say this is an “overlooked wardrobe staple”, I really mean it!

Free Sewing Pattern: DIY Cottage Skirt

Today, fellow sewists, I bring you a free sewing pattern for a work-from-home approved, secret pajamas, vintage-style skirt. Meet the DIY Cottage Skirt. I’ve been working from home from a few years now, and I’ve run the gamut of wardrobe moods. Pouring through Pinterest and the internet at large, I sought solutions to my desire to be comfortable in my life as a person working from home while also still expressing my personal style in a way that made me feel happy about getting dressed everyday. After endless searching and empty results, I decided to create my own. This is how the DIY Cottage Skirt was born.

Pattern Review:
Folkwear 229 Sailor Pants

When Folkwear Patterns asked me if I wanted to try my hand at their new sewing pattern, my immediate reaction to the design was a hard, “YES!”

I was worried about my lack of experience sewing pants, but I’m really glad I didn’t let those feelings stop me and decided to challenge and push my sewing skills!

Welcome! I'm glad you're here!

About 2 years ago I began to explore the idea of an entirely me-made wardrobe, thanks in large part to the highly encouraging and vibrant sewing community on Instagram. After posting several projects, I decided I’d really enjoy keeping a sewing and making diary of sorts.

On Folkmade.io you’ll find many types of making projects, including wardrobe sewing, embroidery and crafting, cooking (…maybe even a little baking), and coding projects.

In my daily life I do web design and some development, and I’m currently working to increase my coding skills and expand my dev capabilities.

So sit a spell, have a read, and let me know what you think!
