Tutorial | Lady Sybil's Hair

I had a few people interested in the hairstyle I did for my "Lady Sybil" photo shoot, so I thought I'd try out a video tutorial, rather than the usual step-by-step photo tutorial. I cover up one of the pinning parts with my arm, but otherwise, it should be okay. :) Let me know if I should do this again in the future, or just stick with photos! :) And let me know if you try it out, and if it works on your hair!! :)

So there you have it!

I currently do not have any sewing projects in the works (shocking, I know), but when I start something, I'll be back on here! Oh, wait... I do have two little girl dresses that I made... will have to get those photographed on the two little girls! :)


  1. You are ridiculously pretty, my dear.

    Just sayin'. :)

  2. Thanks for the tutorial Tara! I tried it last night, and then again this morning and loooove it! Held in all day and is extremely comfy.

    Thanks again!

  3. You did a great job T! Love the finished look I should try it although it would probably take forever with all my hair. :D It actually doesn't look as hard now that you did the video.
    Love your nails too. You look so pretty as always.

  4. I tried it and it worked beautifully! It held well and looks beautiful, thanks for the video!

  5. Allison - YAY! So glad it worked for you!

    RJ - Your hair is a lot longer than mine, but sometimes doing the roll with longer hair can be easier! I'd love to see how it looks on you!! :D Thanks - I like doing fun things to my nails!

    Anna - That's great! Glad it worked!

    BlackStallion - :) Thank you!

  6. Hi Tara,

    Nice dress! great job. I need your help with a dress that you sew last year and it is on your blog, how do I contact you, could you give me your email address and also would you be able to help me giving instructions/ pattern for the dress if I tell you which one is it?
    I tried to contact you through your sister Kathryn as well as I didnt know how else to contact you so not sure if you received my email.

  7. Hi Terese - Thank you! Well, I don't email with people I don't know, but you can let me know which dress you are wanted info about through these comments, and I'll give you the pattern number. :)

  8. I loved this style, but I have really long and thick hair, so the rolls don't work as well. With mine, I did the pouf and side rolls, then did a Gibson tuck with the rest and worked the roles together. I used a bow clip (from the little girls section of the hair isle ) to secure the tuck and it looked great and held all day. Thank You for the post.

  9. Meadow - Thanks for letting me know how it worked for you! The rolls are sort of hit or miss, depending on hair type and length! Thanks for the comment!

  10. I recently stumbled upon your blog, and have loved looking at all your projects. Lots of inspiration for a fellow seamstress! :)

    This morning I tried this tutorial, and must say that it went a lot easier than I thought it would! I have some (not so great) pictures on my blog if you wish to see them:


  11. Hi Tara,

    I love this hairstyle and I am planning to use it tomorrow.

    My friend and I absolutely love titanic and wanted to know if you could figure out the hairstyle Rose is wearing when her mom is tying up her corset. The style is a braid, but we think there is more to it. Let me know if you figure it out! Thanks!

  12. Annie - Thanks for the comment. I actually have never seen the movie Titanic, so I don't know which hairstyle you are talking about! :/ I tried to look up some pictures online, and from what I can see, it is just tightly curled hair, parted on the side, with the front sections swooped and pinned back on either side of the head, and then all the hair braided. I only could find 1 picture, so it's just a guess, but that might be the look you are going for! Sorry I couldn't be more help!

  13. Cheri - Thank you for the comment! You look lovely in the photos on your blog!
