Projects

Button-Wrap Skirt

The modest, comely charms of the button-wrap give us gals a lovely swish of movement and ease of wear, irrespective of our silhouette. Thanks to its repeating panels and simple, fuss-free attachment, it’s an obvious hit for a budding dressmaker. Tapping directly into the ongoing fifties revival, its rockabilly charms pay homage to the slinky pop-and-pose freedom celebrated by coutourier Pierre Balmain to exhilerating effect with Bridget Bardot in And God Created Woman. Why not go bold for a seasonal splash of on-trend colour, and pick a high-contrast floral design for a blooming lovely finish?

Easy Linen Tunic

Easy Linen Tunic

Statement tops are all the rage this summer, but what you really need is a high-impact number that won’t take ages to make. This pattern-free tunic affords the ultimate in freedom both on the sewing machine and out on the town, and is guaranteed to work with any body shape. Stitched in a hot favourite fruity shade of lovely linen, the future is most definitely orange!

Capri Trousers

Capri Trousers

Pioneered by designer Sonja de Lennart, this popular 1950s trouser style beloved of Grace Kelly and Audrey Hepburn lends itself naturally to all kinds of modern looks, made up in cotton for the ultimate in comfort and breathability. The cropped length makes it manageable for beginners, plus you’ll be making them to your own measurements so they’ll be the perfect fit.

Liberty Pyjama Set

Liberty Pyjama Set

Corinne Bradd’s pretty double act gives you the ideal excuse to combine two of your biggest passions: dressmaking and Liberty fabric. What’s not to love? Create a pair of shorts with an elasticated waist and pockets, and customise a cute vest top in no time. Perfect for lounging and feeling peachy!
