Maker Spotlight: Rebecca

Makes by @beccalgood
It's time for a Maker Spotlight again!
I love putting these emails together and seeing how many wonderful garments one person can make. And in Rebecca's case, it's a lot!
I've slowly watched as Rebecca has built up her collection of garments and I've always been so impressed with the quality and attention to fabric and colour. These pieces are all well and truly wearable, with the maker's aesthetic and personality at their forefront. They are durable, timeless, beautiful pieces which is so rewarding for me to see as that's exactly the point in this business.
I hope you enjoy scrolling through her brilliant makes and reading what she thought of each pattern. It's been a pleasure to work with her on pattern testing and her passion for sewing great clothes jumps off the screen. Thank you to Rebecca for letting me showcase her work!
A small reminder to keep tagging me in your posts so I can find them (they're 100x easier to find if you tag me as a person in the actual photo itself).

Over Shirt
The Over Shirt pattern is probably my most made so far.
I started with a white bull denim version, and soon after made one in black linen. I loved the fit and finishings of the pattern, and knew it would be an ideal base for a jacket. I lengthened the body by about four inches, and made a railroad stripe denim jacket with more patch pockets. I loved the result so much that I used the same pattern and length for two other jacket versions. The first utilizing a heavy cotton canvas and the second a patchwork denim jacket, using up denim scraps from the jeans that I’ve sewn. 
 
 
 
 
 
Worker Trousers
The Worker Trousers were my introduction to Modern Sewing Co. patterns. I fell in love with the silhouette, and after completing my first pair quickly made two more. I love the clean finishings, the detailed instructions, and the fit was spot on for me without any modifications.
I’ve also made my partner a couple of pairs using the Men’s Worker Trouser pattern, and he’s asked me to make another. Highly rate this pants pattern for a high quality, modern classic.

Unisex Shirt
The Unisex Shirt is very high up on my list of patterns I’ll make again and again. I have a couple of sizes cut out for different silhouettes.
I’ve made my black linen version in a size small, and my short sleeve navy version in an XL. My most recent make actually, is an XL lightweight denim version, worn here with my white worker trousers. I’ve also made several versions of this pattern for my partner.
I love the clean inside finishes, the only seam that is serged is the armhole, everything else is fully enclosed. The result is a classic, comfortable, hardworking essential in my wardrobe. I actually have another on my cutting table right now. 
 
 
 
 
 
Jaime Jacket
The Jaime Jacket is one of my proudest makes to date. I made a size large in a 12 oz indigo denim, with white topstitching thread. The details are impeccable, I absolutely love the double patch pockets. The way that the double topstitching on the back yoke connects to the sleeve seam and becomes the opening at the cuff is perfect.
I will definitely be making another version in the future, but for now I am so pleased with what is for me, the perfect denim jacket. Works equally well for men and women.
 
 
 
Sienna Dress

The Sienna Dress has perfectly filled a hole in my handmade wardrobe, that of a comfortable but elevated dress. I prioritise comfort, but want to feel classic and elegant at the same time. The silhouette of the Sienna dress is exactly that. The pleats create movement and volume, while the dropped waist and straight straps bring a unique and modern touch.

I could easily wear this dress out for a casual family meal, but it also feels elevated enough for a wedding guest outfit. Absolutely love this pattern, and I have plans for a second version in the future.
