Why buy a new outfit when you can make your own? In every issue of Make It Today, we aim to inspire all would-be stitchers to gain confidence and skills while having fun making outfits you can wear with pride, broadening your fashion horizons and helping you create and control your individual style, whatever your shape or size.

In issue 14, we show you how to work your summer look with a selection of lovely McCall's pullover dress patterns you can use to create your dream maxi and loose-fitting tunic. Meanwhile, our Butterick separates pattern provides the foundation for all the classic smarts you need to triumph both in the boardroom and beachside. Use our fab pull-out to help make a waistcoat with your favourite Liberty fabric, or rock the fifties revival with the definitive swing skirt – the choice is yours! We give you great new insights into technique with a belt-making masterclass and tips on how to extend the life of your lovely makes with your trusty darning ring, as well as tips from experts on how to make the bra of your dreams - and even go professional with your dressmaking adventures. Plus, we talk to the new girl on The Great British Sewing Bee judging panel for the low-down on the new series.
