Get set for summer sewing with our new 'mini summer capsule wardrobe' blog series and join us for our annual summer event for lots of sewing inspiration!
If you fancy having a collection of lovely handmade clothes, in an on trend colour palette that tones together beautifully, and that you can easily mix and match for stylish day to day wear, then our summer capsule mini wardrobe is for you!
Starting from the 28th June I’ll be featuring a different type of garment each week on the blog based on one of the lovely indie patterns that we stock.
I’ll be showing you just how versatile each pattern is with different versions and options for styling it.
Each blog post will also include all my tops tips for making the garment along with a YouTube video so you can see what it looks like in real life.
Making sure you have everything you need for a project before you start can be tricky, especially when shopping online.
So we’ve put together a complete fabric, notions and pattern pack of each featured project with fabric colour options too – get it all together and you save over 15%! Yay!
We’ve got limited stock of each and they will be available each week online to correspond with the garment featured on the blog.
Plan your perfect summer projectJoin us for an open session of advice and project planning in the morning between 10am-12pm.
We’ll take your measurements and help you work out your body shape, then advise you on what pattern we think would compliment your individual figure in the best way. Get inspiration from our range of sewn up sample garments and different colour palette boards based on our fabric ranges and leave with a little booklet to help you plan your future dressmaking projects.
It’s FREE to come along, and there is no need to book – just drop by anytime – and we’ll have tea and cake too!
