Meet our teachers: Sophia Palmer, freehand machine embroidery

We are so excited to now have freehand machine embroidery on our class timetable! Sophia Palmer is the owner and creator of Jessalli Handmade, a personalised gifts company in Dorset. She spends her days making unique, fun and colourful soft furnishings and gifts for all the family. Her favourite textile media is free-hand machine embroidery and she uses it to create textile portraits from photographs as well as cute pictures and gifts. We are super happy to welcome her to our teaching team with her freehand machine embroidery classes!

Sophia Palmer

Q. How did you first discover your crafting talents?

A. My mother taught me to sew when I was young, but I never thought of it as a career until I was 18. All the skills I learnt since then I’ve taught myself, it’s been a journey of determination really, but once you love something you never give up!

Sophia Palmer

Q. We love your website jessalli.com, tell us about your business and how it all started.

A. When I left school I moved to Australia. It was in Sydney that I got a job at a handmade children’s clothing company. I remember going in there, looking round and just walked up to the friendly lady behind the desk and said “I’m looking for a job and I can sew!”. My boss, Colette, took me under her wing and I basically got hooked on handmade. When I moved back to the UK a year later I knew what I wanted to do. And it was Colette who encouraged me to carry on sewing. After that I just had to convince my parents that it was a good idea to cancel my place at university! (who’s need more journalists anyway!). I went full time with Jessalli in 2011, when I was just 20, it was a big leap but I haven’t looked back since. My aim was to always create personal, sentimental gifts for families, and I hope that people keep their little Jessalli-wares forever.

Sophia Palmer

Q. We are super excited for your first Freehand Machine Embroidery class. For those who don’t know, what is Free Motion Embroidery and what can students expect?

A. The only way I can explain Free Motion Embroidery is that it’s the most expressive variation of sewing. Forget what you know about a sewing machine, and just get creative. It’s great fun, and once you’ve done it, you’ll be hooked! You don’t have to be an expert, you don’t need to be a perfectionist, you don’t even need to be good at sewing! It’s totally unique to you and that’s why I love it.

Sophia Palmer

Q. What other crafts do you enjoy? Do you find the time to craft for yourself as well as work?

A. I have to say all I do is sew. For business, for work and for pleasure. It’s my passion and I hope that never goes away. Sadly I have less and less time for personal sewing projects, but I always squeeze in an evening or a couple of hours sewing somewhere.

Sophia Palmer

Q. What are your favourite materials to work with and why?

A. I love working with cotton, I find there’s such a huge variety. I love quilting cottons for the patterns and prints. I have scrap fabric baskets for my machine embroidery, colour coded of course. You can find a use for the smallest piece of cotton with a cute design on it! It’s a big problem.

Sophia Palmer

Q. Describe your style in 5 words.

A. Colourful, Fun, Happy, Free and Textured.

Sophia Palmer

Q. What would your dream commission be?

A. I would love to work on a huge portrait of someone famous. Past or present. I love doing portraits and think a giant, crazy sewn textile art piece would be great fun.

Let’s all wear…shirts and shirtdresses!

We have lots of shirt and shirtdress patterns in stock at the moment and the lovely Alice (one of the newest members of our team) has put together a round up of them all for you with some top styling tips too! Take it away Alice!

Shirts are a staple piece when it comes to your wardrobe. They’re a perfect example of a versatile garment. Whether it’s for work, a summer’s day, a night out in town or a cosy day in, a shirt will work. Here at The Village Haberdashery, we have plenty of different shirt patterns to keep you inspired! From blouses, shirt dresses, tunics, all ages for male & female – you’re bound to find a pattern you wish to make over & over again.

This month, we’ve been looking at ways to jazz those shirts up. So we’ve put together this to inspire you to get shirt making.

Named Patterns – Helmi Trench Blouse & Tunic Dress

Named Patterns have such a classic, ‘high end’ look to them – they’re great for those staple wardrobe items. This one has two different options you could go for. The Tunic Dress features a concealed button closure & half sleeves. It’s a tad more advanced, so if you’re an intermediate sewer – why not give this a go! As its made up of two parts, we thought why not mix it up and use two fabrics, just to make it even more unique to yourself! The fabrics we’ve chosen are Menagerie by Rifle Paper Co – Watercolour in Multi & Menagerie by Rifle Paper Co – Champagne in blush metallic. You could even opt for a plain solid colour & add some personalisation with our Iron – On Glitter Sheets. We feel the two contrasting fabrics would really bring this shirt to life & make it perfect if you’re having a night out!

Grainline Studios – Alder Shirtdress

You can’t go wrong with a denim shirt. This pattern is made up of two different versions – View A, is a-Line, whereas View B is a gathered skirt at the back & sides. Its great for summer as its sleeveless but also perfect for winter as you can just pop on a cardigan! We may have gone for the black Stapleford Denim, however, with a pop of colour it can become quite striking. How about these Embroidery Transfers by Sublime Stitching. They’re so easy to use & with multiple usage you could place them over and over again! As they say ‘floral embroidery is a must!’. How about a floral pocket feature or a floral collar? You could even embroider a floral bouquet on the back of the shirt!

Closet Case Patterns- Kalle Shirt Dress

The Kalle Shirt Dress is a loose fitting shirt dress, great for all seasons! If you haven’t sewn a shirt before, this is a great pattern to choose. It gives you the option to choose what kind of collar you want & button style, making it a super personalised shirt! For this we’ve opted for Linen/Viscose Chambray – Denim Blue & added some pom poms! Pom Poms & trimmings are a great way to make something fun and look totally unique! We have so many options here at The Village Haberdashery from ready made pom pom trims to a wide of variety of ribbons, such as gingham, striped, grosgrain & satins of all different sizes! They would look great as a sleeve trimming or for the hem to give it a festival feeling! They work really well against this fabric, which almost has a ‘denim look’.

Colette Patterns – Aster Blouse

The shape of this blouse is lovely! Its classic & smart, yet casual. Great for any type of wear and style! If you’re a beginner or an experienced sewer – there is no holding back with this pattern! With three different options & a variety of techniques, you’re bound to find one that suits your wardrobe – as well as learning loads of new things along the way! We’ve gone for option 3, as the fluttered sleeves would look great with this fabric. The fabric we’ve chosen is Wonderland rayon by Rifle Paper Co – Painted Roses in Orange. Paired with a classic pair of skinny jeans & boots – perfect Autumn outfit! As the fabric is so detailed, not much embellishment is needed – just some great matching & bright buttons!

Megan Nielsen – Darling Ranges Dress

We cannot go without featuring some stripes! The fabric is Cotton Chambray – Blue Stripe. It’s lovely & light, and would create a simple yet effective every day staple shirt. Iron-on motifs are all the range right now with so many options available. You could go for a cute cherry or summery flamboyant flamingo! They make a great addition and so simple to use too. Or how about some machine embroidery if you’re feeling adventurous? We have some freehand machine embroidery classes coming up too, if it’s something you’re keen to learn. This pattern features so many options from a deep v-neck, high waistline, different sleeve lengths, pockets & darts! Great to be made over & over again.

Colette Patterns – Penny Dress

This Monstera in Midnight Rayon Lawn by Rifle Paper Co. (from their Menagerie collection) is utterly gorgeous which such a lovely drape, it’s a perfect fit for this pattern! The dress is an iconic shape and reminds us of the fifties – It definitely has that ‘Christian Dior’ feel! You could sew this dress in a shirting cotton or a rayon/lawn like we’ve chosen & it would be perfect for any occasion! The pattern features a sleeve-less option, a full fitted circle skirt & a high waisted waistband. You could mix & match to create the perfect shape for you! We’ve paired it with some neutral buttons here.

Tilly & The Buttons – Rosa Shirt & Shirt Dress

Rosa Shirtdress

This pattern definitely has western vibes! They both have so many different, awesome sewing features such as a pointed back yoke, roll up sleeves with optional buttons tabs, piping & buttons! (Hello, self covered buttons!). You can buy piping, or you could have a go at making it yourself. There are so many free tutorials nowadays, definitely make the most of them. As we’re feeling western when it comes to this pattern, we went for a cotton denim, in this lovely mustard shade – a great Autumn colour! Paired with the Jungle fabric from the new Menagerie collection to make the piping & self covered buttons. It would look awesome!

Cashmerette – Harrison Shirt & Lenox Shirtdress

It’s time to bust out the tailoring skills for this one! (sort of!) Both versions of patterns feature classic tailoring details such as button bands, two piece collar and princess seams! They’re patterns that can be made over and over for workwear or for a everyday effortless style! Did I also mention the Lenox Shirtdress has pockets?! A cotton lawn would look great for these patterns. With matching buttons, you can’t go wrong! We’ve chosen the stunning Cotton Lawn – Lily Brasilia by Lady McElroy and some elegant shell buttons.

Sew Over It – Vintage Shirt Dress

This dress shouts retro chic! Its one of those shirt dresses that you can put on, whatever the season or weather and look effortless! As it is so versatile, the fabric options are endless! Whether you wish to go for a lightweight cotton like we’ve chosen (this one is Blue Moon – Folkstone in Midnight), a rayon or a heavy denim – it’s a great pattern to make completely your own. Its definitely filled with a variety of techniques to keep you learning and refreshing, with pleats, facings, collar & buttonholes! Why not make a matching tie-up belt or use some velvet ribbon to give it that extra classy feel!

Walden by Colette – Negroni Shirt

As well as womenswear patterns, we also stock menswear! This shirt is a classic, modern man’s shirt, great to pop over a t-shirt or to wear with a pair of jeans & boots. The shirt suggests a variety of different fabrics to use, such as flannel, rayon and shirting! It also features optional collar suggestions too! I feel you can’t go wrong with this pattern. This Lawn by Rifle Paper Co. is super cool & smart! It features a repeating pattern, is super lightweight with a slight stiffness, yet holds its shape. Perfect to pair with some simple black buttons.

Merchant & Mills – The All State Shirt

I’m loving this shirt! It’s bringing back that retro, american fifties feel with its short sleeve & box fit. Is great if you’re looking for something a little different. The pattern features a pockets, back yoke & short side splits. The fabric we’ve chosen is a little quirky, however, we think would work well! Its a cotton chambray (Chambray Boulevard Prints – Southwest Stripe in Indigo), with a directional print. If you’re feeling a little adventurous, directional prints are a great next step with sewing or even just making menswear itself!

I hope we’ve left you feeling super inspired to have a go at making some shirts for yourself, a friends or a partners wardrobe! Share your photos & makes on Instagram or Facebook with #thevillagehaberdashery! We’d love to see what you create!

Thanks Alice! I’m totally inspired to get shirt making now!
