Guide to good seated photos

#Sewnshownseated is a way to show how your latest make looks like when seated. This is a great way to show how patterns in their standing form looks like when seated. You’ll surprise yourself when you take these photos. Here’s a link to Lolie’s free guide.

This little telescopic magnetic tool is used to take out pins from Lolie’s cork board. She also uses it to stick them back in if she can’t reach that far from time to time.

Lolie provides more ways to make your makes easier to find on Instagram for both children’s patterns and adult patterns.

This is the gripper Lolie uses

As she says ‘Covid has been hard on everyone I think, but particularly to the disabled community, because we’re more at risk and here in Canada we were forgotten many times.’

Can anyone offer pattern fit help with these shorts that Lolie wants to perfect?

Accessibility is very important to Lolie because having wheels awards her freedom (much better than being stuck in a bed all day!) but some of it is taken away because accessibility is, in general, poor at best even today. She constantly finds that when she calls ahead of time to ensure a venue is accessible, she still encounters stairs. As Lolie recounts, “They tell me: ‘no, there are no stairs, you can come’. I get to the venue and see 1- 3 small steps, or a massive doorstep. That’s enough to stop me from entering.”
