After much talking about it, my Pull-on Loose Fitting Shift Dress sewing pattern is now available to buy from MIY Workshop and online from my Etsy shop. It was a very popular purchase at the Knitting and Stitching show this weekend at Alexandra Palace!The pattern is suitable for beginners; there are no fastenings or openings to deal with and there are lots of ways to make it your own style – it can be made with or without the collar, optional side seam pockets and the pleat can be put in the front and/or back or completely left out. There’s also an optional tie belt. It works in woven and knitted fabrics and I’m planning on making a few that mix different fabrics for the skirt and for the bodice……..
It’s a quick pattern to make, here are a few made by students this summer at my Summer Frock Making one day workshops:
The perspex is called “live edge” and you can see why! There’s no way you’re going to loose either of these tools in your sewing stuff. Even when they’re just sat on the table with not much light around, they somehow seem to glow…..
You can buy the little sewing tool and seam gauge in cm’s and inches and the bigger sewing and pattern cutting ruler in cm’s only.
And well I hate to say it but……Christmas is just around the corner…….one for your own list or for your crafty friends?!
