Today was spent treasure hunting at a local flea market and antiques centre. We saw lots of pretty antique sewing machines but we really must try to resist those unless they're mini ones! One of the finds that wasn't resisted was this pile of lace trims,mostly hand made. Some of it could benefit from cleaning but there are some really lovely pieces.Now to decide on some projects which will need lace embellishments! #treasurehunting #fleamarketfinds #vintagelace #antiquelace #lotsoflace #lace #lacetrim #lacetrimming #sewingsupplies #vintagefinds #sewingproject #sewingschool #rooftopateliersewingschool

Skirt hems have been a theme today including this lovely bound hem. Binding is s great way to add a design detail and this floral bias looks super with the vintage fabric truffled from the sewing school's fabric stash. #skirtmaking #dressmaking #garmentconstruction #boundhem #biasbinding #floralbinding #vintagefabric #couldbecrimplene #denimlook #makeityourself #bespokeclothing #bespokewardrobe #sewing #sewingproject #sewingschool #rooftopateliersewingschool at Rooftop Atelier Sewing School

It's been a busy day and our garment construction students have been very productive. This lovely blouse is finished so we thought we'd share this little design detail with you. The back yoke seam has been piped with a coordinating satin ribbon making an eye-catching feature. #designdecisions #designdetails #pipedseams #yokedetail #bespokeblouse #bespokeclothing #makeityourself #makeityourown #memade #sewingclass #nightclass #sewingschool #rooftopateliersewingschool at Rooftop Atelier Sewing School

We love the fabrics used for this pretty mini quilt one of today's students made for her granddaughter's doll.It was her first attempt at machine piecing and also her first project on an electric sewing machine! We think it's lovely and an excellent first patchwork quilt. #patchwork #patchworkquilt #miniquilt #dollquilt #firstquilt #sewingproject #sewingschool #rooftopateliersewingschool at Rooftop Atelier Sewing School

We've been working on samples for our Needlebook project and found some leftover squares from one of our sewing machine covers in the stash.It seemed only right to stitch up a matching patchwork one. The Needlebooks might be our new favourite things. #needlebook #needlecase #patchworkneedlebook #stashbuster #usetheleftovers #sewingsamples #favouritethings #sewingessentials #sewingproject #sewingschool #rooftopateliersewingschool at Rooftop Atelier Sewing School

A little vintage kitsch for your Friday afternoon! Headmistress was given this vintage manicure set music box. It's missing most of the manicure set and it's winder so it has been given a new lease of life with a sewing themed make over : ) #sewingkit #etui #sewingessentials #prettyinpink #vintagekitsch #vintage #rooftopateliersewingschool at Rooftop Atelier Sewing School

This lovely combination is coming to Unfinished Project Club on Sunday. As external zips as a feature go this vintage brass toothed zip is a super design decision. #dressmaking #garmentconstruction #unfinishedprojectclub #designdetails #designdecisions #vintagezipper #vintagezip #spectacleprint #sewityourself #bespokeclothing #bespokewardrobe #sewingschool #rooftopateliersewingschool

Bags wasn't the only theme at the sewing school yesterday,there was also flowers. The super selection of millinery flowers we ordered for the stash arrived and one of our lovely students brought us these pretty chrysanthemums which look ever so lovely in our vintage vase : ) #flowers #themeoftheday #vintagevase #weloveflowers #glassdome #minimannequins #vintagethread #sewingschool #rooftopateliersewingschool

Bags were definitely the theme of the day! One of our young at students dropped in this afternoon with her Mum for a girl's afternoon out and made herself this pretty ribbon handled shopping bag. #shoppingbag #shopper #bespokebag #sewingproject #sewingclass #sewingschool #mumanddaughtertime #rooftopateliersewingschool at Rooftop Atelier Sewing School

Sharing this everywhere because it's beautiful. Just one of the highlights of the Azzedine Alaïa exhibition at the Design Museum. He wasn't a couturier I was familiar with and I'm glad I took the time to visit on my way to get the train home.Some really wonderful cutting and draping, unususl fabrics and so many beautiful seams! The exhibition is on until the 7th of October and I really recommend going to see it if you can. #azzedinealaia #azzedinealaiaexhibition #designmuseum #couturier #couture #draping #beautifulseams #thingstoseeifyousew #inspirational
