Stretch Skirt

Stretch Skirt

Figure-hugging wardrobe essentials don't have to be a stretch to put together, as this simple project by Amanda Walker proves. Constructed from a heavyweight Ponte Roma, this basic pattern has very little shaping and no darts, so it’s beautifully beginner-friendly and offers plenty of potential for all seasons.

Vintage Wrap

Vintage Wrap

Ensure a made-to-measure top every time by drafting a pattern based on this easy project by Amanda Walker. All you need are a couple of simple calculations to construct a fabulous fitted wrap in chiffon, stabilised with tissue paper or a starch spray. Essential seasonal style with your choice of lightweight fabric.

Jersey Tunic

If you've still to discover the joys of jersey, this simple tunic by Julia Claridge is a dream come true, as it has no tricky fastenings or fuss. All you have to do is measure your body and make your marks, and you're good to go! With its boatneck neckline and three-quarter sleeves, it's the perfect pull-on for summer jaunts.
