Last of the summer makes!

Sewing for children can be seriously addictive! The smaller garments take less time to sew and are a perfect way to try out new techniques without needing lots and lots of fabric. Alice made the cutest little jacket using Ikatee's Grand'Ourse pattern which gives you the option to add rabbit or bear ears! Alice used Navy Cosy Colours Sweatshirting and a striped red jersey to line - a fab combination! Karen has sewn up a lovely matching set of dresses in Dance Recital Blue Jersey (also available in pink) which I'm sure will be very well received!

Samantha has been busy hacking the Sew Over It Shift Dress pattern to make this gorgeous top! She altered the pattern by omitting the darts, adding a peplum and took the beautiful fluted sleeves from the Sew Over It Eve Dress - I think it looks fabulous, especially paired with such a special double gauze fabric!

Jennifer used one of our Sewing Society kits to make a beautiful Nina Lee Kew Skirt using Dashwood Studios Twilight Jungle Viscose which looks so pretty! Our kits come with everything you need to make that month's garment - pop over to the blog to read more! 

Jacqui has been super busy over the summer, sewing up two glorious garments! First up is a Closet Case Kalle Shirt made in Pink Paint Splash Double Gauze which would have been lovely and cool to wear through the summer. Double gauze is made of two fine layers of fabric sewn together by tiny stitches in a grid-like pattern.  

Second is an absolutely stunning Tilly and the Buttons Etta dress! Jacqui chose Liberty Capel B Stretch Gabardine which is perfect for this pattern because it has lots of structure to hold the shape of the dress, along with stretch for comfort and fit. The finished garment looks wonderful, well done Jacqui!
